    Holy shit.

    I feel really bad about it, but I can't help myself and always laugh when I see a car cruising into a building.

    What I find most disturbing about this is all the deadbeats drinking in a fucking bar at 1:30 PM on a Wednesday. :facepalm:

    A drunk lady crashed into a package store near my sister. The woman jumped the parking block, onto the curb and through the front door. She got out of her car and asked the guy at the register if they sold Pabst.

    [h=2]History[/h] In 1844, French Canadian settler Benjamin Gervais moved north from St. Paul to claim land in order to build the first grist mill in Minnesota that was independent from the government. Today, the large lake on the east side of Little Canada bears his name (Lake Gervais). The grist mill was converted into a park, which is recognized as the birthplace of the city. Little Canada began as the township of New Canada in 1858. In the 1950s the township was threatened by the suburban sprawl of the ensuing larger communities that were formed, such as Maplewood. In 1953, the city leaders came together and established the village of Little Canada. It became a city in 1974.
    [h=3]Canadian Ties[/h] The city is not shy about its Canadian heritage. For instance, its official symbol is an initial LC on a white fleur-de-lis with a red Maple Leaf background, and the Flag of Canada is displayed in council chambers.[SUP][4][/SUP]
    The city itself also hosts an annual celebration named Canadian Days in early August with its sister city Thunder Bay, Ontario, in Canada.
