I'll muckle briefly

Whatever that is, it should probably only be done in the privacy of your own home.   :-[

men can't write romance

That's a feature, not a bug.   ;D

No one ever wants to see a guy's face.

Well, I'd normally disagree, but my mirror says you're right, so...   ::)

I'm actually surprised Americans are so down on the metric system given it's simplistic, and easier to calculate, nature.

Okay, fine, we'll take back Bieber and even a couple of Kardashians but it's gonna cost you...say...Alaska and Maine...they're basically part of Canada anyway!  ;D

Alaska?  Where all the gold is?  Nice try.  You can have D.C.  There's a lot of hot air there, so it'll help lower your heating bills.

If it helps negotiations, I say we keep Nickelback so long as Canada takes Bieber and a couple Kardashians too.

Yeah, we let them take Nickelback, the next thing you know they'll be taking quarterback and what's next? Greenback?

Take Justin Bieber and Nickelback with him, and you've got yourself a deal.

Bieber??? I hardly KNOW her!

Seriously! And since then, we've generously illustrated that the metric system and space travel should never mix. (NASA let that happen just to show y'all the error of your ways. So there.)

At its closest point, the moon is just over 225k miles or a little more than 363k kilometers away.  I guess metric countries just can't go the distance.

Canada decided it wasn't worth the time or money to fake its own moon landing. That, and Stanley Kubrick was unavailable.  :-X

Everyone knows there's no gold in Alaska. It's all bears and Palins. As for DC, that's great we'll take it...expect a lot more hockey and Kevin Spacey saying 'aboot' a lot in season 4 of House of Cards.
