How Canadians feel about the upcoming election...

It's funny because it's true:

Martin, Harper, and Layton are flying on the Executive Airbus to a gathering in British Columbia when Martin turns to Harper and says, chuckling, "You know, I could throw a $1000 bill out the window right now and make someone very happy." Harper shrugs and replies, "Well, I could throw ten $100 bills out the window and make ten people happy."

Not to be outdone, Layton says, "Well I could throw a hundred $10 bills out the window and make a hundred people happy."

The pilot rolls his eyes and says to his co-pilot, "Such arrogant jerks back there. Heck, I could throw all three of them out the window and make 32 million people happy."

Stupidity by any other name...

I read this quote and laughed:

"This president has a real pattern of defying conventional wisdom," says Mark McKinnon, media adviser for Bush's presidential campaigns.

If by 'defying conventional wisdom' he actually means 'defying wisdom', then yes... yes, he does. Article was in regards to Bush's 6th year in office; typically the 6th year is when shit goes down, and not for the better.

May this year be no different for Bush, but may we all be spared from the consequences of his over-awing stupidity.

This is interesting: In Montreal, Phantom of the Opera star Gerard Butler will wrap up work on 300, a film based on Frank Miller’s novel about the 480 BC Battle of Thermopylae. Butler plays the King of Sparta who led his army against the Persians.

I expect it to be atrocious, but hey... that's not pessimism, that's simply observing precedent. Too bad the movie wasn't based on Steven Pressfield's "Gates of Fire" instead. It might stand a chance.

Happy New Year... I really do not want to go back to work. Recharged my ass. The only thing that's recharged is my desire to get out of where I work.
