I always knew something was wrong with this stuff. I like it too much for it to not cause cancer. Look at it – all shaped and perfect, an attractive color, addictive salty flavor. That can’t be good.
I don’t know about processed meat being “too dangerous for human consumption” - that may be going overboard.
You can consume it, just not a whole lot of it. Canned soup I can give up, but I NEED me my sausages! Just every once in a while.
That’s it. A quick hit of sodium nitrate then I’ll walk away for a few weeks and come back for another hit. That’s not so bad, right?
What have we done to ourselves? Below is a video from an Australian TV station, but you can guarantee this isn't just an Australian problem.
This has been around for a few days, but it's so cool.
Beleive it or not, this picture of Morgan Freeman was created on an iPad. Kyle Lambert spent 200 hours making this hyper-realistic finger painting - with 285,000 strokes of his finger. It's amazing what people can do.
Painting or photograph? It's hard to tell the difference. PS: Your kid wants an iPad for the Christmas.
Why fear sharks when we can fear sales?
That’s why they call it “Black Friday” you know. Like the “Black Death”, the last Friday in November is to be feared.
You could be shot, stabbed, trampled, etc. Fear the sales… Except for Cyber Monday sales.
Yes, it may seem a little extreme but there is a "dark" side to today especially when you see the news stories about how greed just takes over common sense and chaos ensues. I can't think of any "Canadian" sales that take place where we lose our minds like we see in the U.S. but maybe their sales are a little bigger. Which doesn't justify this type of behaviour.
Any way you look at it, you won't catch me lining up for deals or pushing my way to buy something I don't really need anyway.

Earlier this month (Nov. 10th) Sesame Street celebrated its 43rd birthday. If you're like me, it was a staple at our house for the kids to watch and learn. It was and still is good TV. We learned to count, we were taught respect and we had fun doing it!
Not only was the program educational but you developed a bond and a connection to the characters as they pretty much reflected every race, world event, lifestyle and challenges we all face (physically and mentally). The theme song is forever engraved in my head (you have in your head now, don't you? "Sunny Day..."). Maybe that's why I find this so amusing?
You have to take this for what it is... humor. Below is a funny graph profiling several of the main characters of Sesame Street and their disorders. You have to admit, it's pretty much right on the money! If ...
In all my years living in small-town Canada I have never, ever seen anything like this. Who would ever expect an ice tsunami to quickly creep up on your house and destroy it? You can’t stop this. All you can do is watch and freak out. No, the fire department could not have helped. That home was doomed the minute the ice left the lake.
This happened in May, and affected both Manitoba and Minnesota. High winds drove water into the ice sheets, forcing them ashore. Dozens of houses destroyed or damaged, and the residents left with piles and piles of ice. Ice floe is not usually a terrestrial concern. Just another reminder that nobody is every really safe on Mother Earth. Natural disasters can strike at any time and any place. Click here for more on the Ice Tsunami
Divorce is popular these days, so a relating fashion fad was inevitable.
“Breakup jewellery” by companies like BreakUpGems.com aim to give recently exed-wives and girlfriends a blingy way to celebrate their new relationship status.
Something to make them feel empowered. Six glasses of wine and an hour of crying later, you’ve bought yourself a $300 silver band that only wraps ¾ of the way around your finger.
Ha! Take that, you bastard.
While designs like the engraved “SINGLE” and broken hearts ($65 - $85) are clearly breakup themed, many of these rings don’t scream “We broke up!!!!!” They really just look like regular designs, including the $20K Libertà Divorce Ring. I guess if you’re going to blow your settlement money on kitschy divorce jewellery it had better not give itself away to any new suitors.
A more practical divorce purchase in my opinion? The Ex-Knives.
Are you a giraffe? I know so many giraffes. A simple riddle turned a good portion of my friends into giraffes. Of course I’m referring to the viral riddle on Facebook that requires you to change your profile picture to a giraffe if you get it wrong: “The Great Giraffe Challenge”. It’s a fun little fad that I’m sure will result in more and more similar riddle-based profile pic changes. I’m looking forward to meeting some Aardvarks one day.
No one knows why The Great Giraffe Challenge has caught on so much, but I think it has to do with all the adorable giraffe picture possibilities. Or because the riddle is pretty clever. For most people it goes like this:
- You see the challenge but have no interest in being a giraffe.
- You read the riddle and really, really think you know the answer so you message the ...
Chances are you'll be going over to a friends house tomorrow for a pre Trick Or Treating party. Everyone brings a creepy dish except you because you're stuck on what to make or bring.
