Saving the World

February 19, 2010


Your best option, make buttons. Most of the world’s problems can be solved through arts and crafts. Making fun from crap can save the world, singing a song can feed a starving family for weeks, wearing the ribbon immediately qualifies you as a doctor working hard to find the hue. (more…)

“Merry Christmas”

December 24, 2009

Yes, I said it. I’m not encouraging worship of Jesus. Nor am I trying to offend anyone. Its just a greeting, relax. “Happy holidays” and “xmas” are great, and if you find Christmas offensive please feel free to use these alternatives. . . .but why do you find “Merry Christmas” offensive? (more…)

Filthy Kitchen Article: Multi-tasking

December 18, 2009

Alright, I know some people preach this as the greatest upgrade in efficiency since the mechanical man. Multitasking is pretty fantastic, but its position in the hierarchy of efficiency must be considered. If you multi-task poorly, you risk doing a crappy job of any of your particular tasks.

Working “Full” Time

Whoever your boss is, you listen to him and do what he says. Sure you can protest, offer alternatives etc. . . .In the end he is the boss and he has the final say- there is no vote, there is no free election at work. (more…)

Toronto Civic Workers Strike and the City Dumps on the Poor

July 23, 2009


The people of Toronto are not sharing the brunt of this garbage strike equally. People in fancy condos, with cars, or affluent enough to afford private waste collection are barely aware the strike is even occurring. Just look at the city government’s continued stance, they’re pretending that this is actually a good thing and that we can cope and save money in the process. The reality is the poorer you are, the more garbage you’re currently dealing with. (more…)

For Whom the Road Tolls

July 7, 2009


Our dependence on cars is primitive. We have 3 million rich, technological people living together in Toronto who can’t build themselves more than two measly subway lines. On the grand scale of civilizations that’s pretty pathetic. European cities, subways all over the place, damn subway can drop you off in your own basement.
