    Best wishes this season

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Also from our friends south of the border, bombs away! "New Year 2019: US military apologises for bomb tweet" https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46727991

    Peter Jackson documentary on WW1: They shall not grow old

    "The teeth were an orthodontic nightmare" I also couldn't get over how bad it was. Easily 6 out of 10 soldiers featured had Gollum smiles. That being said, the film was brilliant. I can see the point though about how wrong Peter Jackson was to assume that the British soldier's experience was...

    The Khadr Thread

    Did mean that sarcastically. Obviously he can use the 105 million dollar settlement to get his ass there. Brought it up just because of the timing, I'm not "terrorist-friendly" FFS. It would be really weird political conundrum if something were to happen to him there. Like if he and his sister...

    The Khadr Thread

    Not meaning at all to reignite any debate about Omar's detention in Gitmo, or the Harper governments efforts to keep him there indefinitely, but trying to go to to Saudi at this time seems like a bad idea. They just murdered Khasshogi and Canadian and SA relations are not exactly at their best...

    Wall Street Rule for the #MeToo Era: Avoid Women at All Cost

    Kinda hilarious to imagine a bunch a high powered billionaire executives "struggling to cope" with the #MeToo movement. But anyway, will say that while many of these accusations are legit and involved serious sexual assault, rape and abuse of power (Harvey Weinstein, Roger Ailes, Bill O Reilly...

    Peter Jackson documentary on WW1: They shall not grow old

    Canadian Release date seems to be December 17th, with some additional shows on the 27th. Would be great if you're close enough to a major center so you can see it. Looks phenomenal.

    We've all seen Snowpiercer, right? Extreme solution to climate problem

    I guess this is just what it comes to when there's been such a paralyzing lack of political will to act on conservative measures, but it looks like we are in full crazy science mode for solutions to global warming now. Interesting idea and probably very necessary with the current climate (ahem...
