    Do they have maple trees in Canada ? Where can I see them ? Is it ok to chop one as a souvenir ? Do you allow tree on airplanes ?

    Damn, that reminds me of the question I was asked about Europe when I was living in Japan.

    For awhile I worked for a multi-national firm and in our office was an international group. One of the cuter questions asked came from a Chinese lady.

    Ping: Why are Americans always talking about God?

    Me: What do you mean?

    Ping: I hear Americans saying 'Oh My God!" all the time.
