My how things change!

Dear Readers:

I ran across this interesting photo of Toronto in the 1930's. The biggest building was the Royal York Hotel, which was the largest building in the British Empire at the time.

Today the Royal York is not only dwarfed, but totally hidden by all the monsters surrounding it!


Cheshire Cat Illusion;
Sit with a blank white wall to your right. Have a friend sit facing you. Hold up a hand mirror between you, positioned so that your left eye sees your friend’s face and your right eye sees a reflection of the wall. Now sweep your hand in a circular motion across the wall. Your friend’s face will disappear except for his eyes and mouth, like the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland.
This is worth the trouble to try, as the effect is startling. Your friend’s disembodied eyes may float before you for five seconds if he doesn’t blink or smile.


I am not a racist, but I am a culturalist!

Dear Readers:

I've said it before, and I will continue to say that I am not a racist because as a race we are all about the same ....., but I am a Culturalist, because not all cultures are the same! (And NO, I'm not talking about cab drivers!!!!!)

Halifax taxi

This guy is an example of the culture he grew up in, (Middle-Eastern) and shows us why people who come to this land need to adopt our values and morals ...., or they are not going to get along with the majority!
HALIFAX - A 28-year-old man in Halifax has turned himself in to police in connection with one of several reported sexual assaults involving taxi drivers this year.
Investigators arrested Saher Hamdan at Halifax Regional Police headquarters on Thursday.
Police say Hamdan has been charged in relation to a July 15 incident in which a young woman said she was sexually assaulted in a cab while waiting to pay her fare
They say the taxi driver tried to kiss the young woman, locked her door and touched her in a sexual manner without her consent.
Police say there have been 14 reported sexual assault cases involving taxi drivers that have occurred in Halifax over the past four years.
Hamdan is due to appear in Halifax provincial court on Oct. 5 to face a charge of sexual assault.


Saturday Morning Confusion about what Trump would do as President!

Dear Readers:

As usual we got some good  stories from Quora Digest over the past few days and this was one of the best:

If Trump wins, will the United States be feared or respected?

Here was the answer:

Image result for toddler with a gunImagine a toddler pointing a gun at you, like this:

Imagine the gun is real, loaded with real bullets, and the safety is off. 

Imagine for some reason, the toddler is pissed and starts throwing a tantrum, probably because he pooped his pant.

Plus, you are locked in a room with him.

Imagine those things.

Now, what’s the first thing that came to your mind? Is it respect? Or fear?

Like a toddler with a loaded gun, Trump has clearly demonstrated the fact that he is completely incapable of gasping the consequences of his actions if, God forbid, he became the president. 

Some of the things he “suggested” are quite unprecedented, in a very bad way: like killing innocent family members of terrorists i.e. intentionally committing war crimes, banning Muslim including American Muslims from entering the US, his complete ignorance of how nuclear weapons work, how they should be used (or should not), and his apparent stance against the US’s long standing and bipartisan anti-nuclear proliferation policies. 

That’s in addition to his seemingly active undermining of America’s most important allies: NATO, Japan and South Korea, his cozying up to the US’s long time enemy North Korea and long time rival Russia, apparently because their leaders praised him.

What’s even more important is the fact that ignorance can be cured, but arrogance cannot.

Here's a list of some possible scenarios of a Trump Presidency:
  • immediately move 30,000 troops into Iraq with ensuing combat and deaths, causing further instability and rage in the Muslim world
  • acquiesce on any action Putin wants to take in Syria
  • acquiesce on any violence, sabotage or outright invasion Putin employs in the Ukraine
  • acquiesce on any mischief, sabotage, cyber warfare that Putin employs on the Baltic
  • remove all sanctions on Russia — the Republican Platform already calls for weakening them based on Trump’s insistence
  • antagonize Iran to the point that they abrogate the Obama Iran Nuclear deal and re-start their nuclear program
  • threaten wide-scale bombing of Iran and possibly carrying it out
  • threatening NATO allies if they don’t pay the US billions in extortion fees
  • turning Mexico even further against the US and hurting trade
  • nuclear weapons use against ISIS
  • step up torture of the guilty and the innocent alike
All in all it's not a pretty picture folks, and there are just enough idiots and assholes in the United States to give this guy a shot! (Pardon the pun!)

Surge in Canadian and U.S. overdoses this week!

Dear readers:

Image result for junkie clipartIt's still a bit early to tell what, if any connection exists between overdoses and  deaths on both sides of the border these last few days, but in yet another sign that opioid crisis is only worsening, addictions specialists in British Columbia are reporting that there have been dozens of overdoses in Vancouver in recent days while officials in Cincinnati report as many as 72 overdoses.
 Members of the Vancouver supervised injection site 'Insite' say there were 26 overdoses at their facility between Tuesday and Thursday morning. That compares to the five or six overdoses they see on a typical day.
Even seasoned support workers are stunned over what has occurred this week
The cops suspect a new and more potent form of junk is responsible, but so far nobody has a clue as to what, who or where!


Hoping to boost recruiting of Muslim women, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is allowing its officers to wear hijabs as part of their uniforms, the government said Tuesday.

"The commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police recently approved this addition to the uniform," Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale's spokesman Scott Bardsley told AFP.

"This is intended to better reflect the diversity in our communities and encourage more Muslim women to consider the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as a career option," he said.

Oops! James Corden did it again, sharing his Carpool Karaoke commute with Britney Spears on Thursday's edition of The Late Late Show.

As they drove through L.A. byways with the CBS host at the wheel, they doubled up for Spears' hit songs including SuperstarMake MeToxic and Baby One More Time (the latter performed in matching schoolgirl garb).

And, of course, there was one more signature Spears tune.

"You know your song, Oops! ... I Did It Again?" asked Corden, leading up to it. "What's that about? What's it REALLY about?"

"I don't know," Spears demurely replied innocently. "I think it's just a song."

"Because every time I order at Domino's," said Corden, "I think, Oops! I did it again!"

Dear Readers:

Image result for putin clipartIt was an established fact that Edward Snowden, who is living in exile in Russia, is beholden to Vladimir Putin and can be used for propaganda purposes at any time as long as it's not too obvious!

Now it appears as if Julian Assange of Wikileaks might be in the grip, (or at least influence) of Vlad and his buddies at well.

We all know by now that Putin wants Drumpf to win the election, and and he got Assange to announce that they will be releasing all sorts of nasty shit on Hilary Clinton just before the November election.

This whole thing just gets better and better folks!


Scientists have found something entirely new: a galaxy as huge as the Milky Way that is made up entirely of dark matter, the mysterious stuff that barely interacts with the “normal” matter we’re familiar with.

Scientists  say it's 300 million light years from our own Milky Way Galaxy and although nobody can see it, they insist it's really there! (Dark matter is the name given to something that we can’t see, but know must be there.)

A warning has been issued to stay away from that area of space in case we accidentally bump into it! 


 “No one will ever believe you.” Six simple words. And yet there’s an entire corner of the Internet dedicated to the phrase – well, as uttered by the legendary Bill Murray, anyway.

From crashing weddings to participating in city-wide party hopping, Murray has a habit of showing up in random places, and then disappearing as if he was never there to begin with. The only thing he leaves behind is a tale to be told to skeptical friends, whom, as the actor often suggests, have a difficult time believing their buddy’s story.

Maybe Murray is slipping, though. This past week, the actor walked into a restaurant at the Martha’s Vineyard Airport and casually ate a few fries off a stranger’s plate, according to a redditor.

What makes the story different this time is that there’s photo evidence:


 According to TIME, this isn’t the first time Murray has stolen fries. In yet another reddit post, penned by user Lurker32 in 2010, the actor swiped the food off of him in New York’s Times Square.

“When I was waiting to cross at the 46th and 7th crosswalk I noticed a hand slip around me from behind and grab two of my fries. In my confusion I turned around and HOLY SHIT ITS BILL F—KING MURRAY!” the post reads. “Before I could get a word out, he yelled over the crowd, ‘No one will ever believe you.’ He then cross to the other side of 7th avenue and disappeared into the crowd.”

Up in smoke, and other stuff!

Well kids, if nothing else, this guy has a lot of nerve, or he was just plain high as a kite!

Police stopped a guy during a routine spot check yesterday: 
Image result for smoking pot clipartThey say the man partially rolled down his window and didn't respond to questions about drinking alcohol. Brantford police say they could smell marijuana and saw a "green leafy substance" they believed to be weed on the centre console of the car.
They say they asked the driver to roll the window down further, at which point the man allegedly exhaled a large cloud of smoke into the face of the officer. 
The man was then charged with possession of a controlled substance.


Now here's one for the books:

Transgender Ken doll cake sparks outrage. Supporters tell critics to eat it.
Ken Doll Cake. (Freeport Bakery)A popular bakery in Northern California is caught at the center of a heated debate on social media over a transgender “Ken doll cake” that it said it made for a customer.
Freeport Bakery, a popular business in Sacramento, posted a picture online nearly two weeks ago showing a special-ordered cake that depicted Ken wearing a puffy pink dress, flowery sash and a tiara.
The cake triggered controversy on Facebook, with people calling it “truly disgusting” and claiming that the owners were putting their “morals n standards for sale.”
“Naively, I guess I just thought this is a really cool cake, and look at how great they did with the butter cream,” Marlene Goetzeler, co-owner of the bakery, told Fox affiliate KTXL. “What’s wrong with a Ken cake?”
Folks this is just wrong on so many levels that I don't know where to begin. The next thing ya know they will be giving Ken a pair of balls ....., or a vagina!


Image result for indian with a crossbow clipartToronto police report that three people were shot and killed by a bow and arrow today in the suburb of Scarborough.

All three residents of one house were killed by a crossbow, but the thing that puzzles me is that  there is hardly any mention of it by the news services!

Either an Indian did this and nobody wants to be politically incorrect, or there is some other nefarious reason for keeping the whole thing quiet, but we hope to get to the bottom of this before the day is out!

Chili, chili, bang bang!

Dear Readers:

This isn't really earth shattering news or anything, but I thought ya might find it interesting!
In northern Tanzania, the area around Tarangire National Park where elephants live, has seen substantial civilization growth since the park was established in 1970
So, ya got elephants, and ya got people, and when they mix there is bound to be trouble.

The villagers put the run to these pachyderms by poking them with spears, but this often injured the animals ......, plus it would piss them off.

So the local authorities came up with a better plan. 

They would get a bunch of condoms, (lots of these around because of the whole AIDS thing) and then fill them will chili powder and put a giant firecracker in the middle.

These they would light and throw at the elephants, where they would explode and give off a cloud of irritating chili powder that went all over the the herd.

This seems to work quite well, and saves the elephants from harm ....., that is until the poachers can kill them for their tusks!



Praise Allah and pass the ammunition!

Dear Readers:

After the revelation that Canada's latest terrorist was from this area and went to the London Mosque on a regular basis I found it doubly disturbing when I read THIS in the National Post today!

OTTAWA — Many mosques and Islamic schools in Canada are placing young people at risk by espousing — or at least not condemning — extremist teachings, a new study says.
Co-authors Thomas Quiggin, a former intelligence analyst with the Privy Council Office and the RCMP, and Saied Shoaaib, a journalist originally from Egypt, base their findings on research conducted quietly in mosque libraries and Islamic schools.
The study says what worried them was not the presence of extremist literature, but that they found nothing but such writings in several libraries. (First of all, why is there ANY extremist literature in these place? -Ed.)
“Further research is required to determine the depth and breadth of this problem,” the study says.
The authors say openly available material and analysis of social media postings helped confirm their views that many Canadians, including leading politicians, are turning a blind eye to the dangers.
They argue the issue is too important to ignore, given that a number of young Canadians have become radicalized to violence.
Canadian Muslims with humanist and modernist outlooks are being drowned out by those with extreme views, the study says. “The struggle for the soul of Islam between Islamists and humanists goes on in Canada and the U.S., not just in the Middle East, Europe and South Asia.”
The Canadian Council of Imams did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Liberal government plans to announce details soon of its plans for a national office of counter-radicalization to carry out research and co-ordinate activities across Canada.
One year ago, the Senate defence and security committee issued a report saying some foreign-trained imams had been spreading extremist religious ideology and messages that are not in keeping with Canadian values, contributing to radicalization.
The committee has urged the government to explore imam training and certification in an effort help curb radicalization, one of 25 recommendations it made in the interim anti-terrorism report.
When the report was released, an Ottawa imam, Mohamad Jebara, raised questions about its key recommendation.
“Who is going to do the certifying?” asked Jebara. “Islam is so diverse, like many religions. So what sect or school of thought are you going to certify?
“It is extremely complex,” he said. “It’s like having certification for Christian clergy. The question is: Would the Catholics, Protestants, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons agree on requirements for certification? Obviously not.”
Targeting Muslim clergy exclusively could backfire, said Jebara, and result in further marginalizing Muslims.
The committee report called on the government to work with the provinces and Muslim communities to “investigate the options that are available for the training and certification of imams in Canada.”
The report was not supported by Liberal senators on the committee. It was denounced by the National Council of Canadian Muslims as stigmatizing and failing to offer effective solutions to the challenge of violent extremism.

Some of those Clinton E-Mails!

Dear Readers:

While we're on the subject of Hillary Clinton let's talk about the Clinton Foundation!

This is a charity that takes money from rich people and gives it to poor people and the Clinton's don't get any benefit from it! (As a matter of fact they donated one million bucks themselves.)

The only people that are making a noise about it are the Republicans, and some of the media, and they should be ashamed of themselves!


Oh, and while we're on the subject, according to those non-existent health issues that Hillary suffers from ....., on top of mental problems and a stroke, the Republicans are now claiming that she suffers from Syphilis, Autism, Parkinson's Alzheimer's and A.L.S. ......., all at the same time!
