Daily Aggregation: One Of The Guys

daily-aggregation-21. RECORD NUMBERS OF MOZZIES Mosquitoes everywhere! Aieee!

2. DON’T DESTROY RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL ABUSE RECORD: LAWYER Read all about it.

3. ANTI-CHOICE RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION PUNTED FROM EDMONTON CLASSROOMS Good.

4. CONSERVATIVES REVISE PROPOSED PROSTITUTION LAWS They’re still really, really set on keeping sex work illegal.

5. ISRAEL VS. GAZA CORPSE JAMBOREE The Palestinians finally killed an Israeli, so the score in this grim “conflict” (i.e., totally one-sided beat-down) is now in the ballpark of 193-1 in favour of Israel. I hope Israel’s bombing party continues for a while; I’m curious to see exactly how many Palestinian lives each Israeli is worth!

Meanwhile, no ceasefire. Also, the fact that Hamas are assholes does not make wiping out families okay. Also, wiping out families does NOT make Israel safer.

An organization called Independent Jewish Voices calls on the federal NDP to condemn the bombings here.

6. ENEMY OF THE STATE The freedom-loving U.S. detains a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist.

 

7. AW, IS MY FAVOURITE PERSONALITY TEST NONSENSE? “People aren’t exclusively extroverts or introverts – and where they fall on the spectrum can fluctuate widely based on how they are feeling at the moment,” says this story. R.I.P. Meyers-Briggs. You gave me a lot of entertainment over the years.

8. “DON’T RUN FROM BEARS”: SASKATCHEWAN GOVERNMENT Feh, what nonsense. EVERYONE knows the best way to not be eaten by bears is to run from them! Does Environment Minister Scott Moe WANT Saskatchewanians to be eaten by bears? What isn’t he telling us? Also, “Scott Moe”??? Why does the minister have two first names? The public demands answers!

Disclaimer: SCOTT MOE IS RIGHT!!! LISTEN TO HIM!!! DO NOT RUN FROM BEARS!!! THEY WILL RUN YOU DOWN AND MANGLE & DEVOUR YOU!!! NEVER, EVER RUN FROM BEARS!!!

VIDEO: NOW THAT’S A MOUSTACHE Jenny Lewis’ directed this video for the new song, “Just One Of The Guys”,  from her upcoming album, The Voyager, which I’ll review in the paper soon. Good song. “All our friends are getting on/But the girls, they’re still stayin’ young”. Ouch!

  1. Jaysus, there’s the big, fancy government, always telling us what to do and what not to do! Who the hell says it’s not safe to run from bears?! As long as you’re with someone who runs slower than you, I think it’s definitely a fantastic idea to run when you see a bear. Tell Scott or Moe to put that in his pipe and smoke it.

  2. “Instead, he says, Myers-Briggs lives on as a revenue generator for CPP, the company that owns the rights to the test. It makes an estimated $20m (£11.6m) a year by CHARGING PEOPLE $15 to $40 to take the survey and certifying test administrators for $1,700.”

    Haha! Yeah right. I learned long ago trying to pass two down weeks one summer in some local two-week French class that NO ONE pays for this shit themselves. You get a job with the City, FCC, Sask Power, etc., convince them of your eternal usefulness, and they pay your way for for anything…

  3. for for for for ANYTHING, i say. hot dog taste taster evaluation professional…well, we got money in the budget, have Cheryl book your flight and hotel in Miami pronts

  4. 1) The hotter days and winds will lower their #’s. I like the idea of genetically modified mosquitoes to kill off their own populations.
    2) As sad as this is, history needs to remain intact.
    3) Religion conflicts with everything nowadays.
    4) Pleasing their grassroots?
    5) Maybe it’s better if there was no creation of Israel to begin with.
    6) Whose doing the hand clap? A celebrity?
    7) Funny guy. RIP
    8) Running away from a predatory animal does trigger its killing instincts.
    We are also told not to run away from our problems and face them head on. Don’t know if a bear is a problem you really want to face head on.
