He's American! If he didn't know anything about his neighbour, he should be too ashamed to live...granted that applies to a good chunk of the American population (at least, according to Rick Mercer), but still!
I'd like to point out that those 'Talking to Americans' clips are obviously cherry-picked. I think I remember seeing a similar video of another comedian doing the same shtick, but where the Americans go: "Wait...what the fuck!? That makes no sense, are you high or intentionally trying to fuck with me?"
Ah, yes! I'm familiar with that town. A few years ago, I visited that town. I had some friends who were living there at the time.
They took me to visit the nickel mine, Ray Hnatitian Park, and we went on a hiking excursion in the surrounding hillsides. We had a lot of fun! Also, it was during Canada Day, so we got to see the town's fireworks display.
It was a married couple, and she was still attending Laurentienne University. We even took a walk through there where she showed me the campus and stuff.
Michael Persinger was a Professor at that university, and I know all about his research in the field of alien abductions and how be believes it's all linked to the inner workings of the brain. In other words, he believes that what abductees are experiencing is all related to the brain's chemistry, rather than actual aliens coming to earth and taking people aboard their flying saucers. I wanted to meet him and discuss my beliefs in the whole thing with him, but he wasn't there at the time(it was the middle of summer, so most everybody was on vacation). I got to see his office, though.
We also saw a room where archaeologists were studying dinosaur bones that were unearthed. Some of them were pretty big, too! As big as trees, almost!
