Nope, rubber dog ****. Makes a lot of sense given current import/export imbalances. Turns out the angry bald man was ahead of his time.

First, there's the Chicago Pedway system. Basically, this is a huge network of pedestrian tunnels running below the lowest level which interconnect most of the buildings in the loop. The idea is that when the weather sucks, you can walk pretty much anywhere without ever having to go outside.
Calgary, AB has something similar except it is above ground. It's called Plus 15.. 15'' off the ground.

Exposed to snipers. See, you Canadians can't mount an insurgency like we can.

We don't have snipers. Remember were all friendly and nice to each other. Guns? What are those?

Actually Canada has some pretty sharp shooters. Some Canuck had the longest shot record not to long ago, but a Brit with a nearly two mile shot holds it now.

On phone, can't look up.

Well I had time to look up the Brit today. Here's a fun site, and since yesterday was Memorial day, here's one for the allies.

Thats Awesome:

"Hello, I am the Satanic child of a battle mech and a backhoe."

It would be a great description of the Stryker vehicles too.

So speaking of Hijacks. I rule.
