For all you Non-Reality Buffs

This is perhaps the greatest rant I've ever read in my entire life. Courtesy of IMDB

"I am not a Starfleet commander, or T.J. Hooker. I don't live on Starship NCC-170, or own a phaser. And I don't know anybody named Bones, Sulu, or Spock. And no, I've never had green alien sex, though I'm sure it would be quite an evening. I speak English and French, not Klingon! I drink Labatt's, not Romulan ale! And when someone says to me 'Live long and prosper', I seriously mean it when I say, 'Get a life'. My doctor's name is not McCoy, it's Ginsberg. And tribbles were puppets, not real animals. PUPPETS! And when I speak, I never, ever talk like every. Word. Is. It's. Own. Sentence. I live in California, but I was raised in Montreal. And yes, I've gone where no man has gone before, but I was in Mexico and her father gave me permission! My name is William Shatner, and I am Canadian!"

On a related note, I don't think any other man could possibly state the words "I am Canadian!" with such gusto. The Canadians are just so...relaxed and nice. Patriotism means something different to them up there. The American English to Canadian English goes something like this:
