    There was a thread recently where someone told of an alternative to real player but I cannot seem to find the thread. Please can someone tell me what that alternative player is and how I can get my hands on it?
    Thanks!

          Well, you know. The snow is thawing, so we're ready to move out of our Igloos and back into the Teepees for the season. Soon, it will be Beaver season, and I look forward to the fresh Backbacon and Maple Syrup... :lol: :lol:

          With that said - its actually usually a pretty quiet part of the world. Especially Calgary (except when there is Hockey or Football), where most places are closed by 9 or 10 pm compared with the more enlightened cities along the coastal areas. Of course around here, business is Oil and Beef, or some related business. A friend of mine actually had me considering Ottawa as a place to live, which would probably be a good place for an Anarchist like myself, smack in the middle of the Capital.

              Could be that the last time the US invaded Canada and burned some buildings the retaliation involved Washington being burned. This could be the first war which American won in retrospect... :D

                  I wonder if the US, in the end, is going to want to Annex canada?

                  Is Canada still Social Democratic?

                      I think it was a joke.

                      That's a rather broad brush you paint with. Would you care to narrow the target of the source of "rant" and "ideals" you find weird, perhaps? Say, to "the current American government", or do you have some other category you'd like to specify as the target of your (dare I say) rant? Then again, perhaps you are happy with the broadside implications of what your wrote above?

                      Just curious. It takes a kind of certainty of one's own rightness to hit 260 million people as a group. I doubt they could all be induced to sing the national anthem together, much less claim to agree with this or that "rant" or "ideal."

                          Nations and characteristics..... a breeding ground for disputes. Like boys and their schools. I had two good friends round to dinner last year, they'd never met. Both big chaps. The conversation got round to the schools everyone had been to and within five minutes these two behemoths were squaring up to each other over the dinner-table.

                          We're all Januses.
                          For example -
                          English:
                          Polite, fair, humorous, poetic.// Cold, ruthless, aggressive, philistine.
                          Or -
                          American:
                          The most naturally welcoming and hospitable people in the Western world
                          versus
                          The lynch mob

                          And so on, and so forth...

                          As far as Canada goes, in the summer of '73 I was driven up through Glacier, Montana to the border en route to Calgary. I had hair down to my waist (I'm 6'3") and ten dollars in my pocket. I was given two days to leave Canada. A VW van full of hippies was being strip-searched, at the same border point. The immigration guards all had those mirror shades. When we got to Calgary, the zoo had a depressed polar bear. I got my flight OK and when I arrived back in the UK hitched to a hippy fair in Norfolk where the Global Village Trucking Company were playing.
