Americans always boast about their military reach irt Canada. Heinz, nobody wants to nuke Canada. No one wants to invade Canada. Russia at her worst has better ideas about where to invade.  Despite Trump's whining, the US does not really want Canada to develop a powerful military. (Long history of 'persuasion'). The US military itself is a significant factor in Canadian military deaths (friendly fire). The US 'nuclear umbrella' is just a great big threat to the world. The most likely invader of Canada IS the US, probably when climate change really impacts US water resources in some unpleasant future.

Lol, we know how economies work! Seriously, the sooner you get an American government that's somewhat sane, the happier we'll be. This guy sucks.



Right. The US is going to invade Canada. I didn't know you were a nutcase.

Don't pretend to be naïve about the future. Canada and the US (and other nations) are already in an uncomfortable standoff re Arctic sovereignty, this as a direct result of climate change, especially irt the increase in accessibility and the opening of new shipping routes.

And as Dave Godfrey points out, there's history. The US has form wrt liking the idea of owning bits of Canada. I don't think you grasp how increasingly thirsty the US is going to be in the future, and how unlikely it is that Canada will just happily give away more of our resources than we already do. Unlikely to cause real conflict in my lifetime. Increasingly likely 50 years down the line.
If America ever finds they're running low on fresh water watch how fast they decide Canada needs to be "liberated".

lolling at chuck schumer's goading trump to be more of a hardliner towards NK, lolling forever and ever

And that's why you always smash the patriarchy.

Try to make your IKYABWAIs st least minimally creative Hawkins.
OK I'll work on it.

Also try to make them fit the circumstances and the recipients. The 'drink the koolade' meme comes directly from yet another fanatical, science-denying Christian fundamentalist cult.  Your YEC-ism is a perfect example of that blind adherence to religion that led to that phrase being coined.

No one expects hostile actions from the US against Canada in the near future. We just expect the usual bullying behaviour, which has been ramped up to 11 by the Trump administration. I have a feeling you know fuck all about the history of US-Canada relations, good or bad.

'Nutcase'? Nope. Realist.

Science / Re: The Tides ... Take 5
Last post by cold one -
For anyone else reading, the speed of a water wave is normally computed ignoring friction
The problem with you two idiots is the stupid shit you claim turns up no search results at all.  Because it's only you claiming it.

"the speed of a water wave is normally computed ignoring friction"

While I base my comments on what science tells us about reality.  Bottom friction or seabed friction is a common term, and is part of equations to determine shallow water wave speed.

lol

Just for giggles, here's a scan down the list of hits for that search:

(1) "In the foregoing analysis of refraction and shoaling it was assumed that there was no loss of energy as the waves were transmitted inshore.... Except for large waves in shallow water, seabed friction is of relatively little significance."

(2) "Evidently for fluids having small viscosities, such as water, the velocity of the wave and the relationship between depth, length,
and period are unaltered by internal friction."

(3) "...if propagation distances are not too long and the bottom is not too rough, bottom friction energy losses can be neglected."

(4) "We also neglect friction in order to avoid the complication of wave damping."

I predict F X's next screwup will be to confuse amplitude for wavelength.

Gee, Heinz - Trump has shown no respect to my elected leader, even bragged and laughed about lying to his face. Should I respect Trump too or do I get a pass?

You are a canuk, you get a pass.

But you really seem upset about that; you mention it often enough.

I am. It's symbolic of the disregard and contempt with which Trump and his cronies regard Canada. The US is a monstrous country, with which our economy is inextricably entwined. Their culture, massive as it is, inevitably influences our own culture, usually not to the better. (For example, there are now more than one hundred hate groups in Canada, mostly white supremacists, all directly involved with their US counterparts).

Most Presidents at least pay lip service to respecting our sovereignty. Trump is something else. He's a bully and he lies without even thinking about it. He can't be trusted to keep his word on anything. He seesaws on trade, NATO, TPP, lumber, dairy, god knows what his oil stance is going to be in the future. A much smaller economy like Canada's requires stability, something we will never have with Trump in office.

His appalling environment and wildlife decisions may be disastrous for Canadian lands and wildlife as well.

Of course it was upsetting, why the hell would it not be?

Although I mostly repeat it to try to ding it into Dave's thick skull that his hero Trump is a bully and a liar. H never responds, of course.

Allow me to apologize to you on behalf of our idiot president, for any sleight either perceived or real, against your president.

Canada also benefits greatly from its close proximity to the US. For one thing, you do not need to maintain a very strong military against the possibility of Russia incursion; you are under the US nuclear umbrella. And trade with the US is a major factor of your economy. Sometime you have to accept the good with the bad. Trump won't be around forever, but the US and Canada will, hopefully.
Canada does not have a president, but I appreciate the sentiment.

It should be noted that the US benefits from its proximity to Canada.  For one thing, you do not need to maintain a very strong military presence along your northern border, and the North Warning System provides early warning of Russian incursions and the potential to intercept such incursions in Canadian airspace.  While trade with Canada is a smaller proportion of the US economy than trade with the US is of the Canadian economy, trade with Canada is important to the US economy: Canada is second only to China in trade with the US.  There is always 'good' and 'bad' in international relations, as the father of our current prime minister put it: "Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is affected by every twitch and grunt."  Of course "even-tempered" is not a term that I would apply to the current US president.
