    That’s not what we meant…

The company pays for a service from Skillport.com which provides a huge library of reference books online, and a decent selection of prep courses in technical and business topics across a wide range.

    Tom Cruise Remix

    by  • 1/18/2008 • insanity • 0 Comments

    Of course, I imagine that Salon will receive a take-down notice from Scientology’s crack legal team in short order, so if the above video isn’t there… you’ll know why. Tom Cruise really needs to reconsider psychiatric medication… really give it a good thought. Medal of Freedom? Get bent, crazypants.

    Delusional in Dartmouth

    by  • 12/8/2007 • Halifax, insanity • 0 Comments

    Some of the comments from the Halifax News site regarding the story that I posted yesterday about legislated holiday closures in Halifax. Nova Scotia has hardly joined the 20th century in legislating when businesses can legally open to sell to consumers. The rest of the country is only joining us right now to laugh at […]

    When the drug just worsens the symptoms…

    by  • 12/3/2007 • insanity, life • 1 Comment

    New Scientist has a story on anti-smoking drug Chantix, that has been linked to suicidal and violent behaviour. This is a drug that has been on the market in the US for 18 months now, and this didn’t show up in drug trials? No wonder people are skeptical of science and so-called “Big Pharma” when […]

    We watched the Intelligent Design on Trial documentary, streamed from Nova’s web site yesterday. There’s one old kook that makes Michael Behe seem sane and logical in comparison, especially considering that the man has no science background; the man’s a professor of law. Phillip Johnson is known as the father of intelligent design. The idea […]

    Canada Post Crazies

    I had three items entrusted to me to ship today; CD in a jewel case and two rubber bracelets in a bubble wrap CD mailer. This is destined for someone in Canada. A disposable camera in a bubble wrap envelope. This is going to someone in the United States. An aluminum hacky sack in yet […]

    Things not to do if you steal a laptop

    by  • 9/24/2007 • humor, insanity, Vancouver • 0 Comments

    If you just bought a laptop from someone in the bar for $50, or you stole it yourself, don’t click on “upload to flickr” when you take photos of your cool tattoos… From Bill MacEwan’s report of the crime that lead to this photo appearing in his flikr photostream; My business was broken into last […]
