True or not?

I do not vouch for the veracity of all this but, interesting. I do know that Fleming (Scot I think) discovered penicillin, did not continue with it. Florey (born Adelaide Australia) came upon his papers and experimented further. He produced the first usable amount, sufficient for the wounded in WW2. I have met many Canadians overseas and found them all to be troublemakers who wanted me to get drunk and create a riot or similar. (so we get on like a house on fire)





CANADIAN.... Eh !

So, What Do We Canadians Have To Be Proud Of ?

11. In the war of 1812, started by America , Canadians pushed the Americans back past their White House'. Then we burned it, and most of Washington .. We got bored because they ran away. Then, we came home and partied........ Go figure.

12. Canada has the largest French population that never surrendered to Germany .

13. We have the largest English population that never ever surrendered or withdrew during any war to anyone, anywhere. EVER. (We got clobbered in the odd battle but. prevailed in ALL the wars)

14. Our civil war was fought in a bar and lasted a little over an hour.

15. The only person who was arrested in our civil war was an American mercenary, he slept in and missed the whole thing. He showed up just in time to get caught.
