I'll have what he's having..

Federal Liberal leader Stephane Dion brushed off bad press coverage and polls that put his party behind the Conservatives on Monday, saying he was confident of winning a majority in the next election.

Too much C02 perhaps? BC bud? Elmers?

Yet another hypothesis on the story of Christ and what may or may not have transpired in his life. This story, which by the sounds of it already has the Vatican and various others up in arms and angrily denouncing it before it even airs.

Take a pill people! One would think that with such visceral and denouncing statements people come forward with as soon as a theory like "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail" or the "Da Vinci Code " movie (poorly done I thought) roughly pertaining to it comes out, that there was something to hide in the first place.

Not being one of the mainstream Christian faith to begin with, I fail to see what all the kerfuffle is about. It is indeed quite plausible when one looks at the history, that Christ *could* have married, had a family etc. So what? Yeah I know it would turn mainstream christianity on it's ear and all that, but that doesn't really bother me.

I've always been rather fascinated that people could (supposedly) base their life on the writings of others from centuries ago, be it from a mish-mash of writings from numerous scholars and relatively unknown authors or the supposed ramblings of an arab thug.

Lighten up people, its just a hypothesis for christ's sake! (oops!)

..to the halls of Valhalla, where the brave shall live forever!

Time, Time, Time, is on our side.....

Came across this little gem the other day.

It's rather "timely" if you'll pardon the pun, as I am in the midst of checking all my various database systems for code that may be affected by the new DST almost upon us. This new daylight savings is bad enough for us systems nerds, if we all had to go to "Mecca Time" it could make Y2K preparations look rather trivial.

Anyway, have a boo at this and tell me what you think. I'm still trying to decide if this "scientist" is the fruit-fly-guy of the mid-east or just their version of Pat Robertson.

The profoundness of this got me to wondering what other gems this guy could come up with.. google and ye shall recieve..

Surely he can't be a serious scientist.., can he?

I knew it was a plot...

A bit off my normal topic, but I thought this was worth a mention..

I was waiting for my wife the other day in the library where she works when the title of a book caught my eye as I was leaning against a shelf. It was called "A Womans Guide to Changing Her Man". Ah HA! - Of course I, like any other man out there already know this to be fact, "this" being that once married (or otherwise settled down) we are not much more than a piece of undeveloped real estate or a lump of clay, to be improved and moulded, tore down and built up so what we are presentable and ready to do whatever bidding is asked of us.

And you ladies are well aware of this is usually easier said than done, we are not always the most cooperative lot are we? Hence books like this one, which at a cursory glance tells you things like the following:

"If we're so determined to change our men, why are we so lousy at it? For starters, when things aren't going well, we spend far too much time analyzing things to death and finding fault instead of finding creative"

"So, you may be asking yourself, "Since men don't like being changed, why read a book instructing women to do the very thing men most detest about being in a relationship?"

"That's why I'm going to teach you how to transform your man into the "new and improved" version you've been hoping for. You're about to learn effective, down-to-earth, easy-to-understand, simple-to-implement strategies for changing your man"

"Women need to learn these "male-friendly" methods of persuasion and stop doing what doesn't work"

Well ladies, I'm here to help. Reading chapter upon chapter of this gobbledy-gook is simply too time consuming and to be quite honest isn't going to work! Being an expert (a man), I could write a book about this, but the solution is so simple, it would definatly fall in the category of thin books, thinner even than a book about Stephane Dion's great moments in question period or about his popularity in Alberta.

The secret to get your man to be at your beck and call, do your bidding, let you pick his friends, you name it, can be summed up in three simple words. Yes, its true, and I'm going to tell you two of these words, you only have to fill in the blank!

First word is "more", last word is "jobs"

Your welcome...

The fruit fly guy implodes

Check it out here:

And this guy calls himself a scientist? Since when does "science" have no time nor interest to listen to opposing views? Or treat something that is merely a theory/hypothesis like it is carved in stone? His indignant and condescending tone to the host say it all..

They were talking about it on the following program, he was so perplexed that he more or less stomped out after the interview without so much as a thanks & goodbye.

Hilarious, is it not?

A foot in each province..

So here I sit on Sat morning, literally on the sask-alta border. #2 son has soccer zone finals in Lloyd this weekend and its always nice to get to a city, even a quasi-city once in awhile. This is an interesting place, getting to the multiplex involves a short stint into stubble-jumper-land (about 25' if the markers are correct) then back into prairie-chicken-land, if I may use my old BC terms for the two prairie provinces. Anyway, I told the boys last night that the indoor fields here had one goal in AB and one in SK, they werent quite sure to believe me or not, but in any case thought that would be the absolute COOLEST if it were the case!

In any case, I've been away from this blog too long and thought I'd better make a quick entry so that the 2 visitors I get per month will have something new to read. I've been thinking about Dion's f*ckwitted remarks about "easy money" as I see all the oilfield workers in their greasy coveralls lined up in the coffee shops and convenience stores getting hot coffees after spending a long day out in the -30 weather, it makes about as much sense as the dipshits assertion that it is "not good for the economy" when one finds oneself standing in a 10-20 person lineup no matter which store or coffee stop one stops at. Unbelievable...

BTW, if anyone has a link to an audio file containing Dions comments I'd sure like to have it, as well as that stunned dipsh*t Hollands, I know you can get the links to the audio vaults, but I havent figured out if those can be saved to disk or not.
