As it turns out, this isn't actually the case. Check out the video above and get ready to spend the rest of the day collecting maps and geography textbooks, arranging them in one neat pile and setting them on fire.

OK, I'm joking about that last part, but something tells me this video will make you question a lot of what you've learned in school.

Not to beat about the bush, the border between these two countries is actually a jagged line.

What's more, Canadians and Americans are so territorial that they've taken the time to “pluck out” trees and create a so-called no-touching zone.

There are no official press releases on the matter, but I guess squirrels living in these trees weren't exactly thrilled at the idea of having their homes destroyed just so that people may know where the US ends and Canada begins.
