    Default Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Stuns Everyone With His Quantum Computing Knowledge

    During a visit to the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo on Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau responded to a reporter's sarcastic comment about his knowledge of quantum computing by giving the reporter a quick lesson on it.

    Global News spoke to a senior faculty member of Quantum Foundations at Perimeter to confirm how accurate the prime minister was.

    “I was very impressed he made an attempt,” said Dr. Lucien Hardy. “He got it spot on.”

    They seem to know a few things about Trudeau and are interested in him. Some even watched him on 60 Minutes. Rachel Notley? Sure.

    You guys are the least of our worries.

    You're our Samwise Gamgee, we know you'll be there when called upon, but we also know that we don't have to be too concerned about you either, that you can take care of yourselves.

    It's actually a compliment to Canada that I know more about Europe, China, Japan and the Middle East than I do about Canada.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    It really is. We're the nice neighbours who you say hello to every day or two. Not a huge topic of conversation. The assholes across the street keeping you up at night you know very well.

    No one is saying that you should be worried about Canada - except for those in America that don't want pot to be legal and think legalizing it in Canada will set off a chain reaction that will make America do the same. You are usually 5 to 10 years behind us.

    As for Trudeau - he is a rockstar and this was simply cool. Americans have said that they wish Trudeau was able to run for President.

    LOL, you are the king of sweeping generalizations.

    I can post this and it would be a true statement in spirit, but not really true..."Canadians have said they wish Trudeau would take a long walk on a short pier."

    Yes, the words "some", "many", etc. just don't exist in his world. Drives me up the wall...

    I would like to live in a world where people understand that just because I say the word Americans - it doesn't mean ALL Americans. I think to myself - how the fuck can anyone think that I mean ALL Americans, when there are Americans here that wouldn't vote for Trudeau with a gun pointed to their head. It's just basic common sense. If I meant all, I would say all.

    Why don't you just SAY what you MEAN and don't make sweeping generalizations? It's not that difficult. Lose a few marks on papers for forgetting to use those identifiers, and you'll never make a sweeping generalization again, lol

    Sorry I figured people had the brain capacity to know that by not including the word ALL - that I don't mean ALL.

    I didn't do a poll. When Trudeau was on 60 Minutes - there was media and social media attention in America that they would be lucky to have Trudeau as President and some Americans said that that they wished Trudeau could run for President in America.
