Weird Questions While Crossing Canada/USA Border. [Dec. 27th, 2006|08:04 pm]

I didn't forget Boxing Day. Happy holidays to you and yours, belated, Boxing Day celebrants.

Heidi and I traveled across the border and back to celebrate Xmas/Boxing with her dad. That was swell.

On the way, the Canadian-side border guard happened to ask me, the driver, some question to the effect of the ownership of the car (the car was mine), and I didn't hear what he said.

To me, he had asked, "Is there anyone else in your car?"

I responded with a shrug and kept pointing back and forth between the two of us.

I ended up with an apology, stating that I hadn't heard quite what he had said.

He followed with the question, "have you ever had any trouble crossing the border?"

Despite my selective hearing, we were granted access.

Merry Boxing Day to You too!

The question about crossing the border you encountered was just a passive inquiry about whether or not you are a terrorist. You should have replied with some Neil Peart hits on your steering wheel.

STEP OUT OF THE VEHICLE

"What can this strange device be?
When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
Its got wires that vibrate and give music
What can this thing be that I found?"

And the meek shall inherit the earth.

"Listen to my music
And hear what it can do
Theres something here as strong as life
I know that it will reach you."

Next time you set forth on my soil without a road trip 2.5h east I'm going to notify l'Agence des services frontaliers du Canada, tabernak sti' calisse!!!!


(come to Toronto, eh)

HAHAHAHA.

What was lol'able about the trip . . . Heidi was the one that answered most of the questions and did most of the talking. I think besides the apology, I think I answered "US" a couple times, and basically just shook my head at no-no questions like "are you carrying any weapons," et cetera. It was as if I couldn't speak English.

woop-woop-woop-WOOP

The guard on the US side on the return asked where we were born. I wanted to say "a spaceship."

nope

But this film was eleventy-billion times awesome.

Hosehead likes jelly donuts.

Lucky for me I'd been off-planet on vacation at the time of the war.
There wasn't much to do. All the bowling alleys had been wrecked, so
I spent most of my time looking for beer.

I would hope so, but NY's got bite. It's like a desperate fighter on the ropes.

Well, considering neither team plays very good defense... it's possible. Besides, Steve Nash is not lazy; Eddie Curry is.

lol, this is awesome. Kudos to NBC for putting out the uncensored version. I saw this video from like 10 different links but all of them were really low-quality x-fers.

I like weird shit. Thank you for finding the uncensored version!

Canada wouldn't be that hard, would it? If you're driving, you don't need a passport, if I remember right.

We don't need passports yet to travel across the Detroit/Windsor border, but that's about to become a requirement. All we need at this point are valid state license plus birth certificate. They don't always ask for the papers.

Most of the time the situation with guards . . . they ask weird questions to throw a person off.
