Sometimes I feel like some people on C-D's Canada forum need to get their head checked at the nearest psychiatric institution, because some of these folks clearly need help.

So what is your company? I'm betting you are not on the Forbes list.

So what is your company? I'm betting you are not on the Forbes list and your dreams aren't that big. If so please enlighten me. Companies don't usually have headquarters on canada. Big ones anyway. I'm betting you are a smaller firm? Please prove me wrong and prove to me you are indeed living the American dream I'm canada and not just overstating your Success.

Anyway you got a boring corporate job. i waa mainly speaking on arts and entertainmemt. So whatever.

Congrats on loving canada. I have a different experience.

You know anybody thinking just for a moment that that I'm going to freely provide my personal and career information to some anonymous nobody loser on an online forum, must think that I fell off some sort of a turnip truck pulling into downtown Toronto.

Yep, that's me, and I'm loving my upper middle class life.

And just for the record, you really don't have to believe a word I say. You don't know me, and I don't know you. Just believe whatever makes you feel good.

So Karassmatic... Since us boring mediocre people with boring mediocre corporate jobs and average levels of ambition are a little too stuffy for you and cramping your style and after all, there really is in your estimation no opportunities in this mediocre land vs the land of extravagance and Technicolor may I ask why you are here? I mean surely a man with your extraordinary creative talents and brilliance is just being unnecessarily bogged down and wasting his time here.. I mean look at the Bieb's and his level of brilliant success - 21 years old and a net worth of 200 million US to the D privileged enough to be roasted by the likes of Martha Stewart, Snoop Lion - dog - Lion urm and Luda.. He's allowed to stay the U.S even though he is a Canadian citizen because he has a VISA for his 'extraordinary abilities' - so someone as driven as you and clearly miles above the rest of us mediocre peons should easily be able to match at the very least the success of Justin B.. Let us know when we can see you on TV or the Big screen (not those pathetic Anglo Canadian shows/movies that nobody watches), I mean HOLLYWOOD BIG or hear you on the radio while we here just foam at the mouth in jealousy whilst trying to manage that omnipresent inferiority complex genetically programmed in our Deoxyribonucleic Acid.

So your dreams were to live in the upper middle class for a tech company that branched out to Canada?

Damn. Big dreams!

lol. That's funny. I'm jusr stating my opinions. People bash usa more than Canada. So I don't get why you'd get your panties in a bunch over every little comment.
