The French-language Wikipédia article on bilingualism in Ottawa is dramatically different from the English one and may be the most opinionated Wikipedia article I've ever read, concluding:

Enfin, cette situation linguistique du français à Ottawa est humiliante pour de nombreux francophones du Canada (et en particulier ceux qui ne parlent pas l'anglais, nombreux au Québec) qui se rendent dans la capitale fédérale. Cela risque de favoriser donc le séparatisme québécois.[réf. nécessaire]

"Ultimately, the linguistic status of French in Ottawa is humiliating for the many Canadian francophones who find themselves in the national capital (especially those who do not speak English, who are numerous in Quebec). This may encourage Quebec separatism [citation needed]."

The album went head to head with heavy metal band Slipknot's All Hope Is Gone on the Billboard 200 albums chart, seeing that both albums were released on August 22, 2008, therefore both albums were competing for the number one spot on the Billboard 200. LAX ended up debuting at number two on the Billboard 200, at first, it looked like LAX had debuted ahead of All Hope Is Gone by 13 copies. Initially, Billboard published an article stating that The Game had secured the top spot with a margin of 13 units, in what was described as the "closest race for number one since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking Data in 1991". Slipknot's labels Warner Music Group and Roadrunner Records asked for a SoundScan recount, a historic first. Nielsen proceeded to the recount, which placed LAX at number two with 238,382 copies, and Slipknot in the first position with 239,516 copies scanned, a margin of 1,134 copies. After the recount 12 hours later, the article was rewritten and Slipknot was awarded the number one spot

In captivity, they have been observed to sometimes perform homosexual and heterosexual penetration of the blowhole, a hole homologous with the nostril of other mammals, making this the only known example of nasal sex in the animal kingdom.[65][66]
