6. Maybe this is why we're kind of backwards?

With a half hour time zone (There are only 10 places in the whole world with one) it makes us unique, but our television shows/events all start at odd times

8. We can be very hospitable, until it's too much.

We make houses for cats, 200 cats to be exact.

9. People attempt to end a way of life for some families.

Another celebrity comes to town and offers 1 million dollars, $167 dollars to each family who lives off of the seal hunt as a way of life.

10. And us Newfies know how to respond.

12. 70 kms per hour? That's barely a breeze by!
