Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for six 
days.  Eventually, Michael the archangel found him, resting on the 
seventh day.

He inquired of God, "Where have you been?" God sighed a deep sigh of 
satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look 
Michael, look what I've made."  Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said,

"What is it?"
"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put LIFE on it. I'm going to 
call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth, "For example, 
Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while 
Southern Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over there will be 
a hot spot. Over there I've placed a continent of white people and over 
there is a continent of black people,"

God continued, pointing to different countries. "This one will be 
extremely hot and arid while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by Gods work, then pointed to a large land mass 
in the top corner and asked, "What's that one?" "Ah," said God. "That's 
Canada, the most glorious place on Earth. There are beautiful mountains, 
lakes, rivers, streams and an exquisite coast-line.

The people from Canada are going to be modest, intelligent, and humorous 
and they're going to be well-liked as they travel the world.  They'll be 
extremely sociable, hard-working and high-achieving, and they will be 
known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed.  "What 
about balance, God? You said there will be BALANCE!"

God replied wisely. "Wait until you see the loud-mouth bastards I'm 
putting next to them."
