Did you know that Canadians are essentially huge dorks? Because we are and that’s why we are releasing special Star Trek 50th Anniversary coins and stamps. Seriously. The biggest dorks. Look at these!
And when can I expect to see it in the winter Olympics?
You may recall reading that James Bond, as envisioned by Sir Ian Fleming, had entered public domain in Canada. Canada, and a few other countries, differ on the length of copyright protection – 50 years from the death of the creator, compared to 70 in the US and elsewhere.
Mustn't forget about Canada's largest convention held at the same time as Dragoncon and PAX. Here are some cosplays I found whilst surfing. [The captions have been Kinja'd! Some aren't where they're supposed to be] >:(
Never have I been happier to live here, since I moved to Vancouver from New Hampshire 11 years ago, than I was yesterday. So, for therapy, I present Canadian Moose Overlord.

One oddly-shaped dinosaur bone might not turn out to be a new species. It could simply be from a deformed individual of something already known, or a distortion caused by being buried under tons of shifting rock for millions of years.

So I might be an American, but goddamnit do I love hockey. I don't care a lick for football or baseball or basketball, but you put on a hockey game and I'm gonna watch and cheer like a madman. I know, I'm a bad American. (And I'm definitely a bad Texan cause I straight up hate the Cowboys and the Spurs and the…

Stephen Harper's campaign against science has reached a new low, as research scientists say a century of environmental research has been ordered to landfills and incinerators following the closure of research libraries.

Perhaps this is old news to you guys here, but I only learned today that Canada's Supreme Court dresses like Santa Claus. So, while we're losing Panda cams, National Parks, and WW2 Memorials over a fight "to bring the nation’s health care system in line with international standards", we can still laugh at Canada,…
