Worldin and Statin

  • Everybody panic!: An analyst with CIBC World Markets says in all of Canada's two dozen largest cities, Windsor's economy is furthest down the shitter. What's exciting? It could get worse! It could already be worse, since the data used in the analysis was from September!

    Looking forward to the spin on this one later tonight.

  • In sports, I thought last night's episode was good overall, thought to be fair I didn't see the Hardy/Snitsky match. Can anyone blame me for that? Thought it was interesting that Kennedy thanked the Razor Ramon impersonator for showing up [an inside reference to Scott Hall no-showing the last TNA PPV]. An acknowledgment that somebody in New York is paying attention? Interesting...

    All in all, everyone took their lumps and nobody looked really bad, except for Kennedy maybe. I like the new flavour Jericho brings to the top of the card, and with the #1 Contender stip tossed into the HHH/Hardy match I'm very interested to see who will pick up that win.

  • Hey kids! Facebook tracks what your doing even when you're not logged in! That technology, it's something else, I tells ya.

  • For all the Comm Studies majors: Noam Chomsky tells us the responsibilities of intellectuals.

  • Interesting: There are nearly as many Canadians with an "unofficial" language as their mother tongue as there are francophones, according to 2006 census data. The data suggests that outside Quebec, French speaking communities are getting continually isolated, while over a million people now report Chinese as their mother tongue.

  • The kill switch, an anti piracy tool in Microsoft Vista that was disabling legally purchased copies [good job], has been dropped. Is there any way to effectively combat piracy, at this point? You tell me.
