I just found out about Robotic camel jockeys today, but what astounded me was the illegal electric stun guns being used to make the camels run faster.

sarahdeguelph is thinking of getting a PC Financial card, which gives you PC points. You can’t redeem PC points for certain things, like tobacco, alcohol, and, I kid you not, milk in Quebec.

Just what are the Quebec dairy farmers putting in their milk?!

I've been watching all the Real Ghostbuster episodes written by J. Michael Straczynski. I didn't know before tonight that he wrote my most memorable episode: "No One Comes to Lupusville" which has the same premise as Underworld. Thanks to Wikipedia and YouTube for making this easy.

Too bad it rained so much. Otherwise, it was a bunch of fun. Saw deer, wild turkeys, and way too many wasps. Actually went swimming!
