Try buying being canadian and buying computer parts. You won't feel like your dollar is that great anymore.

It's true, it's true yet we, as Canadians, remain to be baffled as our prices are frozen at a rate much higher than the states'. Our only benefits are experienced when we travel to the U.S. now. The irritating, yet somehow funny thing, is that we may not see a drop in our prices for years if the dollar remains at this level. I honestly hate the politics with this shit and hope that they would let economics naturally run its course.

I don't know if I agree with that, imo it is US foreign policy (politics) coming back to bite the US on the ass as the rest of the world says "Enough" causing the $US to devalue (economics)

Hell even the $A is 90 odd cents US, it is traditionally around the 70c mark.
