Vic Toews becoming a freaking judge was the most predicted patronage appointment since Harper put Duffy into the Senate, and we know how well that turned out.
It looks terrible. The bench should not be used as a retirement home for burnt out politicians. That’s what the Senate is for, and certain consular offices.
Funny and scary all at the same time.

Tom Lehrer is a Renaissance Man of the twentieth century. He’s not only a composer, pianist, and singer, who lectures extensively on musical theatre; he’s also a published and teaching mathematician.
Mystro is a particular fan of Dr. Lehrer’s work and has performed it on several occasions, when our choir replaces rehearsal with Talent Nite.
Last week was our singing teacher’s student cabaret. Upon learning, maybe a month ago, that the Italian aria he had been working on wouldn’t do for a cabaret, Arb had to scramble for some different, lighter repertoire, and decided to follow Mystro’s example. Here’s the (Read more…)
This picture graced my inbox this morning. Apparently there were a number placed through the Shawnigan umm, downtown area.
If anyone has any more pictures, background or information feel free to contact me at email@example.com so that we may collaborate.
Will we see more coming? Who dunnit?

BTW I have heard through the grapevine that my name has been connected to the buzz.
Nice enough, but if I had done it there would have been a rooster on the sign, probably my picture and blog address.
Well at least people will be chattering about it, (Read more…)
Funny how things George was talking about are still, well, problematic today.

Here is a refreshingly honest disclosure from the Cable Industry.
Finally honesty and disclosure in advertising.
Those offended by vulgar language might want to pass on this one.
Role reversal. It’s a fantastic way to check if a situation is horribly wrong. A brilliant example of this is found about 3 minutes in on this pretty great video. It follows the point I made in a previous post, but in a new, wonderfully hilarious way. Watch, laugh, be better equipped to deal with anti-choicers.

Saskatoon is a beautiful city, so don’t let these photos fool you. Every city has a few shiners here and there. “There”, in this case, is downtown. This is the Holiday Inn Supermax Prison. Don’t worry, it only looks like a prison from the outside. You can leave, unlike the more picturesque Hotel California.
Here’s one of the more beautiful parkades with a cell phone tower behind it.
It’s January, and the snow has retreated into puddles due to the unseasonal temperatures, but the gang activity hasn’t retreated.
The people of Saskatoon are friendly, and will accommodate you whether you’re (Read more…)
“A man standing up for downtrodden people: Is he a hero, or a hypocrite?
Let our expert panel decide for you by suggesting the hero is a hypocrite simply through his participation in modern society. One of our experts working for an oil-friendly newspaper in a city oil-money built, will suggest the heroic man has not always felt the way he does now, so his position is invalid. Rather than living a life of isolation in the northern woods, to be quietly poisoned by the very thing he’s fighting now with his fame, he’s speaking about changing society. *gasp*
Isn’t (Read more…)

Harper took some good buddies along on our dime.

@stphnmaher How weird is it when someone from Sun News has the better credibility?— CC (@canadiancynic) January 19, 2014

Go read The Bowl, the Ram and the Folded Map:Navigating the Complicated world by Elodie Under Glass. It is fine narrative post with plenty of interesting bits and sheep! It is wool worth your while. However, these paragraphs in particular, caught my educational eye as they articulate not only what happened to me, but what I see happening to those I teach.
“Science is traditionally taught by blowing the minds of students who struggle to understand the workings of pepper grinders, and leaving them to pick up the pieces for themselves. The students then reassemble the fragments (Read more…)

I’m amused. The denizens of Bullshite Mountain just *will not* give in to reason. We are messing with the earth’s climate and the best the right wingnutz can do is blame the government for attempting to infringe on their right to destroy biosphere. I’m thinking that when New York is underwater, and Florida an undersea park, then… then we might start getting stuff done when it comes to maintaining our environment. Jon Stewart attempts and fails to remain apolitical when the crazy overwhelms him and forces his hand. One cannot just *not* comment when (Read more…)

In the spirit of the holidays we here at DWR are going to go easy (for one week at least) on the religiously deluded, thus today’s disservice is a gift, only for religious emergencies mind you.

Browsing the time sink known as Reddit today I came across a very cool comic showing someone building a chat-bot to debate a theist. I googled the title of the comic and found the original as well a very awesome comic called Bag of Toast. I highly recommend checking it out.
The comic in question:
This made me think that I would love a chat bot to debate the theists, global warming deniers, anti-vaccine advocates, scumbags MRAs, or anyone I disagree with but constantly have to have 101 level discussions with. It would be wonderful. But then the Reddit community (Read more…)
This evening I pushed a Co-op cab off an ice median at Kramer and Hillsdale, with the Regina cabbie I was riding with, and another driver who stopped after. The Co-op guy wrecked his front bumper though by failing to negotiate the turn. I tore a piece off it so it wouldn’t rub on his wheel. Yes, I can tear cars limb from limb. Muahahaha!
I got $2 off my cab ride; the driver said he appreciated being able to stop and help and that I wasn’t in a rush like some of his customers.

I had one of those odd dreams recently; a crazy mix of future and past, where rotary dial phones and smart phones co-existed, where past and future intersected. A retro-future dream. I was in Collingwood, an odd Collingwood, but it was still my home town: recognizable,familiar, but also changed. Modernized in striking ways, old-fashioned in […]
