Charity Pays 1 Million dollars in Taxes to give Tsunami Relief – This seems wrong to me somehow.

Canada worried about chinese spies – I really want to know what we have to hide now. Is China planning a hostile takeover? Do we have a secret weapon hidden in a base in the Great White North? Have I watched too many spy movies?

Those electronic dusting cans can get you high! and I quote, Parents don’t talk to their teens about dusting, and teens assume the practice is safe. Because when I was a teen I thought inhaling aerosal was safe. Really.

Vancouver community rallys to keep Big Box stores (namely Wal-Mart & Canadian Tire) out of their area. Now to see if it works. Wouldn’t that be nice?

    – i’m not sure. they did have a nice wide open duty free period. the question is, if they bring in these 50 trucks and in 8 months when the charity dollars dry up and they can’t use them anymore and they just release them into the truck sale environment, in such a small place as sri lanka this really might alter the truck selling economy. however – like they’re going to use the duty money to help that situation at all. really.

    – aren’t you worried about chinese spies? i certainly am. i worry every time i order chinese food. what if i get the secret microfilm in my fortune cookie by accident and they feel they have to kill me to retrieve it?

    – huh. i have three part cans of that stuff. um…i have to go for a minute or 300.

    – nothing new. they’ve been fighting them, quite successfully for all the years i’ve been living here. this is just the most recent push.
