Yikes, a bunch of teenage Civil Air Patrol Cadets can "March" better than that.

When I was frog marched to detention in school I did a much better imitation of a frog.

Looks like the Belgians need to hire the Gorn.....or maybe some Finns - they were very pesky to the USSR in WW2 - and somehow made Buffaloes work.

Blame the cobblestone - hard to walk on

The latter point especially true if you are wearing the hobnailed boots with steel clickers on the heel! There is a reason railroads use steel wheels on steel rails- the friction coefficient is the lowest available for land movement!

I believe those are special needs guys. Pure participation unit not representative of the army by far

I didn't know Cliff Robertson was Canadian. Oh yes, he was born in La Jolla CA. Which province is that in?

The 'CA' stands for Canadian. Amazing how Canada owned so many heavy cruisers in WWII.

Pamela Anderson, Justin Beiber, Ted Cruz in the most obvious ways.

No other Canadians / Canadiens are augmented.

I mean have you ever seen a photo of Wayne Gretzky - a Hockey Immortal ?

You proudly claim Justin Beiber? I think that the Guess Who/BTO would be the better choice to claim . . .

No I do not proudly claim them...

I was asked how many are 'augmented' - larger than reality - (games studio Montreal)

Only 3 Canadians are augmented

The rest of us are apologetic, humble, hockey fans who drink superior beer in a superior Nation

At least you describe yourself better than other Canadians who state "We are not Americans!"

Since you mentioned William Shatner, what about James Doohan?

BTW, I prefer German Bier but when I have had Moosehead, it reminds me of a German Lager although it is weak.

Our water-beer mass produced beer like (Coors and Budweiser) is disappearing here. We have so many micro-brewery plants with great product opening up that the old standards are being left on the shelf. You pay a bit more for the micro-brews, but they are so much more satisfying it is worth it. Two beers normally does me for an evening.

Good micro-beers on the Canadian prairie? Maybe I will have to revisit the place. Of course, when I went there before it was NOT to sample such delights.

Wow, now I picture a Deus Ex DLC from Eidos Montreal titled "Canada Revolution", in which Canada creates first ever Augmented Hockey League. In the course of the game it is revealed that Pavel "The Magician" Datsyuk was the first augmented human player in hockey history, which leads to nation-wide riots in Canada and Detroit. Later, Adam Jensen is sent to infiltrate the league and expose the nano-machinations of its owners.
