My first Rally/Protest

March 12, 2012

Yes, i did it. Enough has finally happened to my country to inspire me to participate politically beyond the voting polls, facebook groups and blogging. We all have our breaking point. Mine was an illegitimately elected %39 ‘majority’ government passing multiple freedom killing bills all at once- and telling us daily how they have the mandate of Canadians. (more…)

Top 6 Worst Computer Viruses of All Time

July 15, 2011

Pop-ups, slow downs, restarts, program failures, and a computer bogged down. Mysterious new files are created, old important ones are deleted. Whatever you were working on gets interrup. . . .  Fight it? Might stop working altogether. Kill it? Too adaptive– a technerd updates it remotely. They invade our privacy and leach our information- even our money! These are the worst computer viruses: (more…)

Privatizing The Unprofitable

June 15, 2011

A Company needs profitability. Its financial bottom line is very real; stop making money and it will inevitably cease to exist. A government’s bottom line is with its people. Whether its a democracy or a king’s castle the concept is simple: piss off enough people and your government ceases to exist. Companies answer to profitability, governments answer to people. Say it again if you need to.

March 5, 2010

Did a post labeled Stem Cells, over 300 messages about health! Seems that was the spambot’s preferred direction- but to be fair I’m yet to do a post on penile enlargement (more…)

Help Yourself, the new customer service model.

May 20, 2009


Everyone loves having their computer dilemmas resolved by some self righteous prick on a help forum who has nothing better to do with his time than mock your lack of knowledge and assert dominance. Remember a time when you didn’t have to kiss some loser’s ass on a help forum? When resolving your problems meant calling the company and having a self righteous prick on staff walk you through it?

Close the Toronto Island Airport

April 29, 2009


Cities don’t allow airports near the downtown core for many obvious reasons. Here in Toronto we continue to allow the lucrative Toronto Island airport to expand; yesterday another expansion was announced by airport owners: Porter Airlines. Our green spaces are shrinking and our city is becoming increasingly ugly- all so that Bay Street businesspeople can cut 20 minutes off their travel time to catch a flight. (more…)
