no, i figured as much ... just checking  ;D

Are you Canadian?  Is it true Canadians are ridiculously polite?

ha, yes...I'm canadian.  Don't know about the politeness thing

As per the chips .. I would imagine that if Kerry becomes president ketchup chips may become much more available in the US

I'm a Canadian, and I hate ketchup chips.  A few years ago, I also decided that I hate ketchup.  I haven't had any ketchup since.

God help me if I ever get stuck in an airport terminal because Canada ceased to exist in the middle of my flight....  :-\

I hate ketchup, too.  Catsup is OK, though.

the other day, i tried dill pickle flavored chips.  it tasted like dill pickles...and though i didnt like it, it strangely drew me in and made me eat the whole bag. 
'why does it hurt so much when i poke it?'

the same thing happens to me with salt and vinegar.  I eat a few...and they start burning my tongue...but for a strange reason, I just keep eating them.  Then i end up regretting it for like a week after.  I'm such an idiot sometimes.

Aw, Cheeks...

That is how the potatoe chips make their money.  They go laughing all the way to the bank, thanks to idiotic Canadians like us  ;D

I love salt and vinegar chips/crips.  It's strange to me that fish and chips in the US aren't served with malt vinegar - the best part.  As for the metric system - wasn't the US supposed to adopt it at one point?  What happened?  I still get confused every now and then and I'm a really bad judge of distance because it still takes forever for me to convert miles into k - but maybe I'm just extra slow because it has been a while since I've been here...

Metric sucks.

Metric vs. Standard is like DOWNY vs. SNUGGLE 
You better check yourself before you wreck yourself.
