At least it's on clearance.  Ours are loaded with em.  $79.99 plus 14% tax. ::)

14%?! I'd move.

Move FAST!

What defines the US?  Patriotism.

What defines Canada?  Taxes.

Don't make me repost that Sadam thing we made up of you a few months ago...

...And Kevin, the supersoaker is upside down because it's funny. Buttmunch. :-*

Guess this post rules me out for a mod position. Not that I applied...

Hmmm...  No, buttmunch is completely acceptable, even when bolded.  :)

The picture with no shame involved would've lost you the spot though...  I think it may oust Matt from his actually.   :-\

Good to know. I'll start trying harder.

Actually, I'm holding out hope I'll eventually get on "Survivor", so the time I'd I'll be away would will conflict with modding.

Move to Pittsburgh Dean...  We seem to be a haven for people getting on reality shows.  Someone told me one of the people on Survivor this season is from PIttsburgh and I think that's like our 2nd or 3rd...

When you get voted off for punching the most arrogant person win, you'll be welcomed here to refer to many as buttmunch.

Hey, I'm the TV star here. Not Deanpaul.

You all just remeber that.

And back on topic ::)

A good buddy of mine reports finding the first 12 basic figures at a Walmart in Canada.  No pics at this time, but this is the same guy that sent me a red Phoenix for cost (and Dave and Nick's Rangers Leetch figures) so I have no real reason to distrust him.  They apparently put out two cases of preview figs plus a full case of collection I.  If he posts pics, I'll link them for you.

14% Tax isn't so bad when you have national Health Care.  (You do have national Health Care?)

Yeah, but it's not just 14% tax.  That's the retail tax.  We're also assessed a pile of other taxes as well.  Basically I lose about 35-40% of my salary off my paycheck to "taxes".  That includes things like Employment Insurance (unemployment insurance if you prefer), Canada pension plan (old age security pension), Federal Tax, union dues, etc.  We also have pretty serious sin taxes - gas locally is $3.32 a gallon (four liters) in Canadian dollars so about $2.65 US.  A 26 oz bottle of Vodka will run you well over $20 CAD.  A dozen beer run around $16. 

As for the national health care, it is indeed there and accessible to everyone.  The true benefit being for the poor and elderly in that respect.  But it's not without huge problems.  Waiting lists are absurd.  I have to book 3 months in advance for a physical; my wife waited over a year for knee surgery and don't get me started on how palliative patients are handled by the system (the staff are fantastic, the system handicaps them >:(). 

You can decide if it's a great system or not, but it's likely misrepresented in the media on that side of the border, much as the US system is here. 

Sorry for the tangent.
