I feel safer in Toronto. Not for fear of getting stabbed or mugged or anything. I wasn't afraid in Japan and I'm not afraid here. HOWEVER, I answered my country, simply because we have street lights and sidewalks. I never felt safe walking the curb in Japan where drunk drivers and a nation of visually challenged hit-and-run drivers pass within inches going as fast as they can. Freaked the eff out of me, but not here. No worries.

Funny though, the Chinese don't seem to realize that it is THEY who are enslaved to the communist party. THEIR puppet masters don't want THEM getting any ideas about being able to view what they want, when they want, without the big boys telling them it is okay. Ha ha. Yup, it is because of the nudity. Keep thinking that lemmings!

Does this thing detect radiation too? Oh, I guess they should do that as people are leaving.

I know Kim is a kook, but he does have the right to be pissed off. I mean, if someone sat outside on my doorstep sharpening their knife, flexing their muscles and aiming their pistol at me, I too would be pissed. I wonder how the US would deal with a situation like that. Oh yeah, Cuba. Never mind.

In NK, the movie would run half as long as it does in the US. Spoiler: it ends when the NKs win the Whitehouse.

Good to know. I always carry a hammer for self defense. I figure I'll be fine with the cops so long as I carry a nail with me.
And funny, in the corner of my browser window I see an add for DVOR knives? I suppose for up to 70% off. I'm joining.

Looks like it will be bottled water for all that can afford it. Luckily, China is on the rise, so it will be bottled water for everyone.

It's a problem with the rules. Runs count, so teams try to run up the score (e.g. Canada's 14-4 loss to Italy). Notice who showed a lack of class in each of their losses. Hopefully the Mexican's learned something; as manager Ernie Whit said, "You can't hurt the Canadians!".

Seth did as fine a job as anyone else who's done it recently, and a might bit better than most. Still, the idiots out there who don't get his humour (ie the Academy) should have known what they were getting into. Great show Seth!!!

Looking forward to another Classic. Too bad all of the stars don't feel the need to come out for this one. I guess the WBC needs time to grow. Exciting baseball.

Actually, it does add up to 21. Ha. Three years of uni isn't enough though. So, you can't be right.
