Good Character
Posted: 3/20/2009 9:42:12 PM
I was on Youtube a few months ago and found a clip from one of the CBC news magazine shows that was made in the early 1990s (Back before the internet was well known and only some lucky people (many of them nerds) and select intellectuals knew how to get to it), and it was about this new growing thing called the "internet"

It was an interesting piece, but one thing stuck with me, they showed some newsgroup or message boards and showed the discussion and "Free exchange of ideas" and the reporter mentioned how wonderful it was that people were speaking freely, yet everyone was respectful and tolerant of other's ideas and views. It was a utopia of respect and courtesy, despite the annonymous nature of the beast.....

I guess the point I was going for here is that the internet provides an anonymous outlet for people, and there are people who, given such a venue, will take this opportunity to behave like royal jerks....and as my Jr. High French teacher used to tell us "Empty cans make the most noise"

A lot of good characters here....and some not so good no doubt...but its the bad ones that get the attention....meanwhile the good charaters are too polite to pipe up...

Police use Taser during arrest of 15-year-old outside Gordon Bell school
Posted: 3/20/2009 9:29:40 PM
Is there such a thing as "Easily subdued"? Not an easy job for the police, and I assume their options were, try and disarm the girl...which seriously puts whoever does it at risk of serious injury (And if there were others around them), pull the stun Gun, or take a page from Clint Eastwood (you know, drop the Stun from the Stun gun)

Given those choices, I vote for the shock gun. As I understand it, while they are reviewing these things, the Stun gun is non lethal (Most of the time) and usually very effective. Again, choice between taser and .45....

I'm serious
Posted: 3/20/2009 9:15:46 PM
I'm the curious sort, and I think I'm pretty truthful so when I see a link on my inbox page that says "Take the Truth/Integrity test" I figure "What the hey could be good for a laugh if nothing else"

So I get about 20 or so statements I'm supposed to classify as "True or False" some are just plain laughable, and I'm REALLY curious what the result will be. Will it say I'm more honest than 90% of the population? Will it tell me that I am a becaon of integrity...or a damn dirty liar?

Well my result (And the reason I'm posting in this thread) is that I'm seriously truthfull and I am very much "Serious member" my not plunk down my 10 bucks a month...since I passed the all important test.

I guess I provide this tale as a caution in case anyone sees that link and expects something different.....I wonder if I throw the questions if it will tell me I'm a jerk and they WON'T let me be a serious member?

As a computer guy I get asked "Who should I buy a computer from" and I always say "If you're buying a brand name, HP, Dell, etc. it don't matter who you buy from (Best Buy, Future shop, etc.) but unless you have someone really good with computers who can help you, buy with the place that has the best service plan/deal. If repairs will be done locally, then that is way better than having a manf. warranty that requires you to ship it somewhere"

seem to be a lot of animal lovers out there
Posted: 10/22/2008 8:40:10 PM
I lost my dog last spring (She was a Humane Society Rescue from the early 90s, and became my dog when my Grandmother couldn't keep her back in '98) and while I'm not ready for a replacement yet I have looked a google search for adopting a dog in winnipeg and there are a few places you can go that have web sites and info.

Humane society, Animal servies (If you go to the city of winnipeg Website thye have pictures of dogs you can adopt), no kill animal shelters like D'Arcy's Arc (Although I think they do more business in Cats) and the other Shelter (Further down portage).
I think you can use Petfinder dot com to specify pet (dog, cat fish etc.) region (city) size (petitie, med, large, huge and marmduke)and age (Puppy, young adult, senior)

Hope this helps some.

Talk Like A Pirate Day
Posted: 9/17/2008 9:12:54 PM
Well I hope this isn't totally inappropriate for this thread, and if it is I thusly apologise (Although looking in the rules I don't think it is)

I am a member of the Lightning Fencing Club in Winnipeg. We've had our seasonal open house in the beginning of September, but we are still/always trying to recruit more members and just trying to get the public interested or more aware of the sport of fencing.

Since Friday September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day, we would like to invite teens and adults to our club to participate or to watch some "swashbuckling fencing action". This Friday night event is free, although we recommend that participants bring their own water and some decent (gym) shoes.

We are located (in the church) at 790 Honeyman Avenue at Walnut Street in the Wolseley area.
Please use the Walnut Street entrance and proceed to the gym on the second floor.

Fencing starts at 7pm on Friday night. Children (ages 8-12) who are interested in fencing should visit us on the following Saturday morning.

I got a computer and I have no idea where the floppy drive is.
I've looked all over and nothing.
Also I got a bunch of these cirular coasters (Silver on one side, writing on the other, with a little hole in the center) why do I even need them? I also put my drink in the little built in cup holder.

Just curious.....

Fringe Festival
Posted: 7/26/2008 10:18:33 AM
Hey hey all....only a few days (Today and tommorow) of Fringing left.

Caught "The Shakespeare Show: Or how the illeterate son of a glover became the worlds greatest playwright" at PTE (Portage place).
Great show, lots of fun, but I do recommend, bring a sweater (Dang that AC was maxed out yesterday)
Over at the Gas Station Theatre they had Sound and Fury's "Sherlock holmes and the Saline solution". As others have mentioned, great show, worth of the 5 stars they've been getting. Audience interation, and a few local jokes thrown in.
Also, at the Gas Station, "We is Blunderstruck"...a local (With dreams of going big) rock and roll trio (Pitstop Pete, Truckstop Trevor and Doorstop Dan) play the funeral of their biggest (Well according to them)fan. Some nice covers and very funny. A fair bit of audience interation (Particularly for cute girls...because you know how rock and rollers are)

If you haven't caught any fringe shows yet? Then why theheck not, lots of fun, supporting the local festival and for those who don't know any better, you can act all refined and superior (Just don't mention the names Truckstop, pitstop, or Doorstop)

Happy Fringing all!!!!

Fringe Festival
Posted: 7/19/2008 10:49:40 PM
The Movies (Abridged). - Basically a brief synopisis of Movie genres, as done by very talented performers. Kind of an odd outer story bookending what is otherwise a joyous romp through the films.

Skin Flick - An aspiring young film maker gets a grant to make a porn film, but it ain';t as easy as it looks.
A for effort, but something was mising in this for me. ENjoyable, and the "sex scenes" were hilarious.

Sucker - A suave 30 somethings year old photographer found a 14 year old girl on the internet, and meets her at a coffee shop, and then they go back to his place, but this is no ordinary 14 year old and she gives him more than he bargained for. Dark and filled with twists, not for the faint of heart.

How do you start up a conversation with someone?
Posted: 7/16/2008 9:52:55 PM
Well one way to start....

"Hello, my name is Inygo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die"

Opps, that might not work so well (Or might if they're a fan of the Princess Bride)

As said, start with hello, and I suggest adding a bit to it, preferably something based on their profile. If they say they like dogs, and you do also, you might mention this and ask about their dog.

Some of the classic rules (As I've no particular order)
1) Not too long , you don't bore them.
2) Not too short, you need to Give them something.
3) Don't be negative (Its considered bad form to start an intro email a 3 paragraph rant on why the government is a buncha jerks and what they can do with your tax dollars.)
4) Its sometimes considered bad form to likewise come off as "everything in life is so glorious and always will be."
Gotta love rules that imply there is a magic happy medium, but they don't tell you what it is.
5) Most importantly, be yourself, and find your comfort zone. If you try and pretend to be something you're not, best you can hope for is to get caught later. If you find a way of writing (Or things to write about) that you're comfortable with, then it will likely come off more naturally (We're all a bit nervous when writing these things, but remember, we only fail if we don't try)

Hope this helps some.

I'd love to volunteer, alas I'm selfish...between work and other activities my free time is limited and I wish to spend as much of it as i can taking in shows.
Maybe next year.....

Porn Star (Venue 4) - I saw this show here 2 years ago, and if its the same woman doing it (Its a mostly one woman show) then it is absolutely Hilarious.
The tale of a quiet Sask Librarian (And daughter of a family values politician) who is up for an award after her ex-boyfriend sent in a tape of them.

Sherlock Holmes and the Saline Solution (Venue 18 Gas station Theatre). 9:30 every night from now till the end. The threesome (Known as Sound and Fury) are too funny for words (And I found clips of them on youtube). The last two years their shows (Cyranose, and Canned Hamlet) recieved rave rviews and I can attest they were well deserved.

Anyone else got some suggestions of good shows to catch?

witty comebacks you've actually used or heard.........
Posted: 5/30/2008 10:38:47 PM
Some years back I was at a community club after a little skating and this one particular teenager had been trying to raz me (The 20 something Adult I was) to impress his friends, but I had more than enough verbal skill to keep him at bay and was getting a bit of a cherring section from his peers, yet he persisted, so as I was leaving I decided to try a final shot at him in hopes that he'd choose to think twice before trying to look cool at other's expense.
"Hey now (to his friends) be nice to him, he's had a tough day, earlier I saw him in that bathroom getting a drink of water, and then the lid fell and hit him in the back of the head."

My vote for best comback ever however goes to Winston legend has it he was once arguing with Lady Astor who said to him "Sir, if you were my husband I'd put poison in your coffee"
Churchill, without missing a beat, immediately shoots back with "Madame, if you were my wife...I WOULD DRINK IT"

It's the 21st century, so what happened?
Posted: 5/25/2008 11:27:47 PM
Flying cars....I have seen that they do kinda exist (Some guys made prototypes) but they are pretty darned expensive, so not really feasible.

Of course when you think about it, there are enough dangerous idiot in regular cars now, can you imagine what will happen with "Flying" cars?
I can imagine my dad crashing his because he ran out of fuel becuase he didn't "want to fill it up to early"

Well 2000 done came and went, no flying cars.....but 2015 is around the corner, so rent a copy of Back to the Future 2 and figure out which items in there are fact or fiction.
Actually don't they have little vacum cleaning robots that can automatically patrol your house for dirt? (That'as like your points 4 and 5 combined.....sure it ain't Rosie from the Jetson's.....but its a start)

Howwever when looking back on all the things we didn't get, did you also look back at all the wonders of the 21st century that we did get that a child of the 60s could only imagine?
Cell phones - Be able to carry a phone with you anywhere so you can impress the guy sitting next to you on the bus with your LOUD conversation. Also Phones can play music, take pictures, surf the web and tell time.....the phone part is just a bonus now.
The Internet - As a child of the 80s I honestly gotta say when you think about it, it still seems pretty amazing. Connected to the world whenever you want (Except when you NEED to be connected, at which point your ISP will be overloaded or "Down for Maintenance"
Wonder Drugs - I mean medical miracles like a cure for cancer....oh wait we ain't got that yet...or for AIDS, or the common cold....but the 21st century did pump out impressive is that? (Imagine those medical researchers..."Sure we coulda worked on Cancer, but the idea of allowing Hugh Heffner to keep going with the ladies while in his 70s was too noble a cause to pass up")
We've gone to the moon....oh wait that happened in the 60s and 70s and we ain't been back...and now we.....keep talking about mars (I'm sure we'll go one day....once the feul prices go down a bit, and when the economy is better and when is the best time for the martian tourist season.)

I'm sure there are other great things that came about in the 21st century I just can't think of them at the moment....

Kill or Be Killed, what would you choose?
Posted: 5/25/2008 11:01:15 PM
I think for most people the urge to live is pretty strong, and given a choice, our base desires would be to NOT die.
Now as for the original question, kill or be killed, given, without any qualifying stipulations, if I'm facing down that choice, I choose to put the other dude in the ground before he does the same to me (If those are my only options) .

Now as this thread has progressed, we've learned that there can in fact be scenarios.
I think most of us would all agree the we prefer
1) To live
As I said, straight question, "who dies me or him", Me usually wins out.

2) To see no harm come to our loved ones.
If you concoct a situation where "Who dies, me or Him, however if HE dies, someone we care for is going to get hurt or worse" then we might reconsider our stand. Of course it kinda sounds a bit like we're going into James Bond Supervillain Deathtrap Territory here.

3) To see no harm come to others as well.
In general we don't want others to be hurt as a result of our actions.
This however brings to mind an episode of the twilight zone.

A man and his wife are approached by a stranger, the stranger says to the couple, "I have a box, in this box is a button. I will leave this box with you for 24 hours, and during that time you have to make a choice of whether or not to push the button.
If you push this button, then someone will die, and when I return for the box tommorow I will pay you $50,000. If you don't push the button, no money and this person won't die. The person who dies is someone you do not know, who doesn't know you either, and no one will ever know about this other than us."
The man leaves and the couple consider the offer. The money would be very helpful as they are just barely getting by, and examination of the box shows only the button, no other mechanical or electronic workings.

As an aside to the story I ask you all, what would we do in this situation? $50,000 in exchange for signing a stranger's death warrant....something that is too ridiculous to be believed.

Back to the story, the couple press the button (Still not completely believing someone would die) and the stranger returns with the cash. "you pressed the button, yes?"
"We did" the couple reply. The Stranger takes the box, and leaves the money.
"so someone died then? As a result of our pushing the button." The husband asks.
"Correct" The stranger replies, and turns to leave.
As he's going the Husband asks a final question, "WHo gets the box now?"
The stranger turns, and replies "Someone you don't know"

First 'meeting' do's and don'ts-what are yours?
Posted: 4/4/2008 11:49:42 AM
Do's and don't's are useful and all, but the ability to apply them in a practical situation is even more so.

I present to you a true story (Related to me by a friend when she went on a date with some guy)
I challenge you to spot the do's and don'ts that are present here, if any. (The names have been altered to protect the innocent)

Bobo met Grizelda at work (he was a consultant working at her office, so no chance on office romance drama) and thought she was cute, so he asked her out for dinner. Grizelda wasn't all that interested in Bobo, but thought he was nice and agreed, and told him "Sure, but just so you know I'm a vegetarian, so while I'm good for eating out at most places, a few, like the Keg and Tony Roma's don't have much for me."

So later, when they go out Bobo says, "I'm REALLY in the mood for ribs, let's go to Tony Roma's " Grizelda, trying to be amenible, agrees and once there peruses her limited options. When the waitress comes Griz orders herself a Ceasar salad, which ilicits the following from Bobo "Well I hope you don't plan on kissing me with garlic breath.". Bobo, it seemed was not joking at all with this comment.

Choose your own adventure time, what should Grizelda do?
A) Change her order, removing the garlic for the night night of necking ahead
B) Change her order to some meat product, since being a vegetarian is dumb.
C) Change her order to the most expenisve thing tshe can find, wait for it to arrive, then walk out.
D) Just get up and leave.
E) Laugh at Bobo's funny joke (That didn't seem like a joke at the time)

Posted: 4/4/2008 11:42:23 AM
You know, with the exception of "having a criminal check ready" , most of what's been stated here seems like common sense to me, although really, pointing out common sense is never a bad thing.
I'll add a few...again common sense but.....

Do be polite and courteous.
Do Compliment her on her appearance.
Do pay attention to what she says.
Don't try and dominate the conversation
Don't look at her butt and say "You really should start going to the gym"
Don't start any sentence with "Hitler was really misunderstood".
Don't babble!

Ladies, since you've been so helpful for us, here be a few for you
Do remember that men can be pretty nervous, so cut us a little slack, we might babble some.
Do give us a smile now and then, particularly if you're enjoying yoursef.
Do tell the truth. If you think a little white lie like "I love baseball, watch it all the time" (When in fact you've never watched it, played it, or were aware that there was a team in Winnipeg) is warrented, then be ready for an hour long lecture on the game.

Don't lead off with "So what will we name our children"
Don't talk about your insanely jealous exboyfriend the bodybuilder...who has a car just like the one outside.
Don't say "I usually have very high standards about who I date, but with you I figured it was time for a little charity"
Don't pretend that your date is your brother (And ask him to play along) while you flirt with the waiter.

Does the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy not teach us that the answer to "the life, the universe, and everything" is 42....of course now we must discover, what is the question.

For you Doc, I'd say your current meaning of life consists of a certain puilosphy my father always used to tell me "Take puck, put in net"

"Just because we have different opinions doesn't mean you're less correct than I am....just less interesting."

"He's hit rock bottom and has shown signs of starting to dig"

One I actually used a few years ago to put someone in his place in front of his peers
"Hey let's be nice to this guy, I saw him in the bathroom earlier getting a drink of water....then the seat fell and hit him in the back of the head"

And let us not forget self insults...and who better to refer to that the master himself.....
"The other night My wife told me to take out the garbage, I told her 'you cooked it, you take it out'"
"me an my wife, we have this aggreement, we only smoke after sex....I've had the same pack of cigarettes for 14 years. What's worse is she's up to 2 packs a day."

"I caught her in bed with the milkman, she made me promise not to tell the Butcher"

"Steak and sex, my favorite pair...I have them both the same way....Very rare!"

"I went on a blind date one time, I waited at this corner for an hour and a half, finally this girl shows up, I say 'are you Linda', she says 'are you Rodney' I say 'yeah', she says 'I'm not Linda' "

3 guesses which guy who never gets respect said these gems.

From The Princess Bride: (Most of these lines are funnier when seen in context I guess...personally I can't imagine them out of context)

Vinzinni: He Didn't Fall? INCONCIEVABLE
Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Montoya: You don't think you could speed this up do you?
Roberts: This isn't as easy as it looks, I'm afraid you'll just have to wait.
Montoya: I could throw you this rope we have here. But I don't think you will trust me to take it as I am just going to kill you when you reach the top
Roberts: Well that put a hinderence on our relationship.

Fezzik: Right. I'll kill him my way. What is my way again?
Vinzinni: Pick up one of those large rocks, and hide behind the boulder. When his HEAD comes around the boulder, Crush it with the rock.
Fezzik: RIght......My way is not very sportmanlike.

Roberts:You're that smart are you?
Vinzinni: Let's put it this way. Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?
Roberts: Yes
Vinzinni: Morons.

The Blues Brothers
"What sort of music do you usually have here?"
"Oh we have both kinds, Country AND Western."

How about some classic Dirty Harry?
Harry: "Can I make a statement McKay?"
Lt. McKay: "Go ahead"
Harry: "Your Mouthwash ain't cuttin' it"

Harry: "Do you have any kids Lt.?"

HERE is not a place, it's the internet. It’s not real
Posted: 2/5/2008 2:20:04 PM
Well, one can get into some very deep metaphysical type philosphizing on this topic.

Is the internet real?

Define your terms.
The internet DOES in fact exist. It is a communication/information hub on which millions (if not billions) of people transact in some way, shape or form every day. Paying bills, reading the news, playing games, chating with others, discovering new recipies, or learning facinating new facts ....its all here....but, where is here?
If this dang thing ain't real, then I haven't paid a utility bill in over 2 years....which is okay since one of those bills is for Internet access......

The internet is of course real (Its a bunch of tubes....made by Al gore) but there is an old school mentality by a lot of folks who need to quantify things, and let's be honest, the internet is NOT quantifiable, it has no physical location (Components of it, things that allow it to exist, have physical form) or form.
For those who were scratching their head about my "Tubes" comments, a United States Congressmen (Old guy...Zell Miller maybe, I forget) last year refered to the Internet as a bunch of tubes....I suspect because when someone explained what it was to him, they used that analogy and he took it literally.

The argument for its reality I've established, but its argument against is likely a result of its more famous stories. People who misunderstand, or don't use it much, will see it merely as a haven for those who wish to hide their identity, and then reach out to others, using this false facade for either fun or profit.
That poor prince from Nigeria who's always sending emails asking for your help...and bank account. The guy who meets the "Girl" of his dreams only to discover she's not so dreamy...or female (turns out they had more in common than he thought). Those "herbal" blue pills that absolutely do not do what they say despite their money back guarentee, I'm still waiting for my refu... uhm...I mean..
But I digress. The point is that the internet is infamous for being able to provide any type of information you'd like...provided you're not overly conerned with it know...correct (Stephen Colbert artfully demonstrated this by getting his fans to change the Wikipedia entry to say that African Elephants have tripled their population in recent years). The "reality" of what you find on it (Or who you find on it) is often in question, and should ever be given scrutiny by us. From that respect, unlike a library (That is an actual physical building, filled with, what we assume is, legitmate and reputable information) the internet seems like a very unreal place.

In the end, I think it boils down to the fact that, we all know, what we know, some of us allow ourselves to be open to new ideas and some of us, do not. As my Jr. High French teachused to say "Empty cans make the most noise", and its often those folks, that annoy us, and are the most mistaken.

I leave y'all with the best line I heard a few weeks ago by some guy who called up to Power 97 and said "I'm sick of these internet dating sites like Facebook and plenty of Fish, they're for losers, if you want to meet a woman why don't you people just go to the bar and get a girl drunk."
And people say romance is dead.....and ladies...I bet he's single.

2 minutes for being stupid!
Posted: 12/19/2007 9:29:31 PM
I recalled something I saw when flipping channels and stopped on Nancy Grace (If anyone desreves a lifetime suspesion for being Stupid its Nancy...) but apparently (Unless this was a repeat) there was a guy, in nevada, who left his 2 year old daughter in the car on a hot sunny day while he went into a Brothel. Apparently a secuirty guard in the parking lot found the girl there. (SHe had been there for a few hours).

The word stupid is not nearly good enough for this case.

You need to pass a test to drive, a license to (legally) buy a gun, but to be a parent......

Christmas Controversy

Well you all are welcome to your "Real" tree. (Did that one year. We went out to some forest, treked a while, cut one down, dragged it back to the truck.....) me, my fondest memories of christmas start with going down into the basement to get the box with the tree and bring it upstairs.....watching my parents stare at the instructions and put it together (Why is there always a part left behind.....a different part every year.....20 years...20 different parts....Tree don't have more than 25 parts total....what up with that????) , and then decorating it.

Ahhhh...we all have our that fake tree (I swear if my house caught fire I'd save my dog, and that tree....and my car keys)

I recall that one twoshadows.

"My toaster had a Warning label, 'Do not use underwater', I can't tell you how many times I've been scuba diving, and wanted a piece of toast....THANK GOD for that warning...."

So I was at the Walmart last night (Seriously I ALWAYS see stupid people in the car) and there was a left trun lane and a right turn lane. Moron was in the left, I pull up to the right, and then turn Right, just as he decides to Turn Right also. Then he gets to the next intersection, and puts on the left turn signal (Again I'm in the right lane) As the light turns green (no turn light, just plain old green.) He turns left despite cars coming the other way.

Whenever I'm on the road I recall Einstein's words "The only things that are infinite, are the Universe,a nd human stupidity....and I'm not so sure about the Universe"

Christmas Controversy
Posted: 12/19/2007 7:26:10 AM
Interesting outlook on things.

Is Christmas too commercial? Heck Yeah. In my 32 trips around the sun (And based on knowledge I've gleaned from archival footacge starring Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart), I have noticed that things have gotten more and more commercial, earlier and earlier.
I think those profiting on the commercial aspect of it have slowly been pushing the envelope more and more to maximize their profits.

Consider if you will....the image of Santa that we all know and love (Big fat man, red suit, white beard) is in fact the creation of an artist who was doing work for the Coca Cola Company (Back in the early half of the century).

Now let us consider the Myth.
Guy and his wife live up in isolation in the North Pole (Creepy?...although might not be as Cold as WInnipeg in January) while somehow watching all the children of the world ("He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when You're awake" 2 thoughts spring to mind. First, creepy old man, second, if the CIA got hold of this technology ) with a gaggle of little people (creepier) that he exploits as slave labour (He can't be paying could he he gives the toys away), so that one night a year he can push 8 beasts of burden (plus one with a mutated shining nose, who was ostrasized from his peers until his percieved deformaty was seen as something that could be exploited...Had that NOT been a foggy Christmas Evening, Rudolf might have become a supervillain) beyond the laws of physics, time and space (Again, if the CIA got hold of this ability....) and presumably to exhaustion, so that he can sneak into people's houses (Breaking and Entering) to leave gifts for children (Okay now this just stinks of did Santa survive the McCarthy Trials in the 50s??? Maybe he made a trade with the CIA.....), in exchange for Milk and cookies (No wonder he's fat.) assuming the children have been good (And if not, they get a lump of coal, which might be useful if they need to keep warm, since this myth started years back when people in fact did use wood or coal for home heating...."Instead of a fun toy I punish you with something that is boring, yet practical"). I can't decide if its all a drug induced delusion put to song and paper, or a poorly concieved cautionary tale that aspires to bribe children into being good with the promise of a reward from an all seeing icon with magical powers. Hmmmm...what would Karl Marx say about that?

Now from a less cynical (And more serious) standpoint, as was said, Christmas is what you make of it, and certain traditions are adpoted, regardless of faith. I don't care what faith you are, at age 12, the idea of a few weeks of no school is far too good to pass up.
I'm not a terribly religious guy, but I enjoy Christmas....its the Party at the end of the year. Getting together with friends, sharing good cheer, the food, decorating the tree (I've had the same tree for ten holds precious memories as it was previously my Parents and they got it the year I was born ... so no new trees have to die.) the exchanging of socks (Oh wait, that's a traditions from a different Holiday ), Christmas music (Seriously there are TONS of renditions out there, if you're tired of Bing Crosby, maybe find Bonnie Raitt), the food, time with family, did I mention the food.
Fond memories of Christmas past, hopeful anticipations of Christmas of future, the inevitable thought "Oh yeah....ain't gonna do that next year....NEXT year I'll be prepared". I love giving gifts (Shopping for them can be a pain), I enjoy doing my annual christmas baking, and the kid in me still marvels when a brightly wrapped gift is placed before him.

Personally I believe that people should enjoy this holiday season and try and remember the core values (That many religions espouce), peace, happiness, and goodwill to your fellow man (oh what the heck, its Christmas, Goodwill to chicks also ). And if enjoying the season means sleeping till 3 PM and eating ice cream, then who am I to argue the fact I'm unplugging the alrm clock and getting the spoon ready right now.

Now if only I can find "Its a wonderful Life" on some channel.......

Single at Christmas
Posted: 12/17/2007 10:03:04 PM
This seems like the perfect place to play one of my favorite christmas songs.....but since that technology eludes me, I'll just post the lyrics.

I prefer the Holly Cole Version myself, but Dean Martin has a good rendition of it that is on youtube.

Christmas Blues

"The Jingle bells are jingling The streets are white with snow
The happy crowds are mingling But there's no one that I know

I'm sure that you'll forgive me If I don't enthuze
I guess I've got the Christmas blues

I've done my window shopping There's not a store I've missed
But what's the use of stopping when there's no one on your list

You know the way I'm feeling when you love and you lose
I guess I got the Christmas Blues.

When somebody wants you When somebody needs you
Christmas is a joy of joys
But oh when you're lonely You'll find that its only
A thing for little girls, and boys

May all your days be merry Your season full of cheer
But til its January I'll just go and disappear

Santa might have brought you some stars for your shoes
But Santa only brought me the blues
Those brightly packages tinselled covered
Christmas blues"

Being single at Christmas blows......BUT in the grand scheme of things, I still have Family, friends, my health, good job, food on the table and a roof over my head, which is more than some people can as a wise sock (Named Ed) once suggested "Count your blessings and not your gripes, pinhead" (I think he was directing it at Briteny Spears)

Been to Vegas?
Posted: 11/21/2007 1:00:36 PM are you going to check out one of those legal "brothels" while you are down there?

Has anyone gone to one of those? You know someone had to ask? Thought might as well be me!

Interesting piece of Trivia......brothels are legal in all of for one county....the one that Vegas is in. Weird no?
Although I understand that there is no shortage of options outside of town in that regard. Also when you walk down the strip there are people who hand out flyers for stuff like that, and porn things and all. Heck they even have little newspaperboxes here and there, filled with those things.

Vegas...where facinating and Bizzare duke it out in equal measure.

Posted: 11/20/2007 11:02:57 PM
Vegas is cool, I went a few years ago, fun trip.
I booked air and hotel through a pretty good deal, although some have found travel agents can work wonders as well.
There was also a great site,, great for buying tickets to shows in advance (Some really good deals). Isn't Celine finishing her Vegas mid Dec?

If you stay on the strip, and you're fond of walking, then you may not even have much need for a car (Depending on where you're heading) as almost everything is there and there is a lot of foot traffic. (Also a few shuttle buses). I actually went to Hoover dam on a tour group, which was fun.
As for hotels, Celine plays at Ceasars which is a nice hotel (I stayed there), although one of the pricey ones (Unless its changed The Belagio is the most expensive hotel on the strip, but its also the only hotel on the strip where you can get from the entrance to the elevators without having to navigate through the casino)
Can't really say much bad about the is a tourist town so they know their business pretty well.
Hope this helps some.
Have fun.

Men and Girlie Movies
Posted: 11/20/2007 10:45:43 PM
Its just the same old sterotypecasting that some people refuse to grow beyond.

Somewhere over the years somebody decided that certain films are "Chick flicks" and real men didn't enjoy those, and only watched them when dragged by their girlfriends/wives. I actually have a friend that used to give me a hard time now over the fact that I really enjoyed a few chick flicks (although I challenged his definition...."As good as it gets" is a great film...but is it really a chick flick?).

As far as I'm concerned, a "Real man" watches whatever films he darn well pleases and doesn't give a hoot if it isn't deemed "manly" enough by others.

Hot off the press.....breaking news....and a personal tale
Posted: 10/28/2007 12:05:00 AM
Sorry to hear about this happening to you Quint.

For all who are interested, there is a really good book on this subject (Of protecting yourself) it "The art of the Steal" by Frank Abignale Jr. Its available at the Winnipeg Public Library on CD (And its a good listen)
Some of you may recognize the name, he was the guy that was played by Leonardo DiCaprio in "Catch me if You can", the gent who scammed millions using forged cheques before he was 21. After serving time in prison he became a security consultant, helping law enforcemnt agencies (for free) and major companies, banks etc. (for a fee) to better protect themselves against various types of fraud and scams. He rarely lectures to the public in general (Since ne'er do wells would use all the tricks and hints he offers as a How to) but he decided the potential good outweighs the potential bad. A really interesting tome.
He mentions about a lot of scams, including one where a fake ATM was put in a mall (near a bank) and was copying the cards of everyone who tried it, and then later the crooks cloned the cards and used the recorded PINs and cleaned out man accounts (A simple precaution is that if a ATM is not mounted in the wall....make sure there is a data line hooked up to it)
He also mentioned a scam where employeses (Like waiters in a restaurant) could use hand held devices to copy the magnetic strip on credit cards. Technology is a harsh mistress.

Any Fringe Reviews to Share?
Posted: 7/25/2007 9:33:41 PM
Well with a couple of days of fringing left I must say, so far, Fringe has been really great.

So for anyone still planning, or on the fence, there are some terrific shows to catch.

Here's my quick rundown of what I've seen
(In order of when I saw them)
1) Lucretia Borgia. A humorous musical about the daughter of a vindictive pope....with MUSIC! From the folks what brought you "The Conclave" and "Bloodsuckers". At the Gas station theatre, entertaining (But not nearly as funny as the previously mentioned shows)

2) Cyranose. SOund and Fury, that wild and wacky trio from LA return (Previously they did Canned Hamlet, and Testicles and the Sack of Rome). THeir show (At Cinemateque) is flippin Hilarious....I love these guys...but if you're gonna go, this is a small venue and they are well known for delivering the goods, so get them tix early.

3) History: Deleted scenes and extras. Also at Cinemateque...a one man show which is really more of a standup routine....but very humourous, very entertaining, and very much worth the 9 bucks to get in.

4) Flowers for Dennis. Dark...not without humor, but alas not really my bag. Of course following the previous two perfromances maybe I was just expecting more laughs.

5) The Medicine show. Got pretty much trashed in the freepress, but I think it got a raw deal. Humorous, entertaining and with charm. Admitedly not a spectacular show, but a good one. If you go, sit in the front row center.....

6) Giant Killer Shark...THE MUSICAL. That's right the Citizen's of a Copyright protected island have to deal with a tough former NYPD cop, a hipppie scientist...and oh yeah a mayor who is worried about the large invisible ocean liners that are eating....I mean running over swimmers. Think a spoof of times classic SNL others...monty pythonesque.

7) Grudge match. Love wrestling? Well I do....but I sure didn't love this show. a few friends who I went (IE Dragged) to this are not wrestling fans, and they liked it even less than I. A tale of a factory worker's rise from the mundane life to the heights and lights of pro-wrestling....and his subsequent lesson that when you hit it big and start acting like a jerk, you're gonna pay. So the Free press gave this 3.5 stars, and Medicine Show vote is the scores got reversed somehow.

8) Uncle Willy's Spray on Condoms. The Spastics (Formerly Gluttons for Punishment) offer 57 minutes of sketch comedy that is sees a vareity of humourous to zany bits, most interconnected somehow. Fun, predictable (Many of the punchlines you see coming) but ultimately still way funnier than SNL has been in YEARS.

9) Jason Neufeld is Impotent. Heck standing in line for this one woman show is a treat itself because the titular Jason Neufeld is out there reailing agaisnt the lies you are about to hear from his "ex" girlfriend Alix Sobler. Sadly I may not have time to hear his corrected version in "Alix Sobler slept with my brother" but Alix does a heck of a funny show. For any who are worried, Jason and ALix ARE a real life couple and are not actually broken up....but the idea of a bitter broken up pair with dueling shows is pretty funny in of itself. And Alix's play is well worth making it over to PTE.

10) Napolean's Secret Diary. Also at PTE and thurs or Fri is the last show (The actor has to skip town before the weekend). A lot of fun. Quirky remenicences from a young boy who would eventually grow up to be one of the world's most famous men. Learn about Napolean...the history of France (With vegetables) and of course why you never fight the russians in winter.

11) Who the Devil are you. Chris gibbs one man show with explanation is a treat. I missed his highly acclaimed "Power of Ignorance" last year, but he now has a self help book about it, which he does flog during the show several times. Funny funny FUNNY! Plus its at the King's head enjoy a pint.

12) Improvision versus MECHAImprovision. Short form improv. 2 guys. 2 dozen mouse traps (You have to see it to believe what they do with those). If you like Improv, these guys will entertain you. If you don't...then avoid this here show.

Well that's it for me.
Gonna catch me about 6 shows this weekend(With luck)...hope to see you all there.
Aside from what I mentioned, other plays getting good press.
Jesus in Montana: Tales of a Doomsday Cult.
Cableresque (I saw this one last year...tres bon)
Giant Invisible Robot.
The Genghis Kahn Guide to ettiquette.

I hope to catch most of these this weekend...hope to see some of you there...and if you do see a guy in a straw hat, feel free to say HI.

Happy Fringing all.

I inform every potential date that sex will not happen anytime soon..
Posted: 5/9/2007 2:10:35 PM
If that's your rule, then that's your rule. You make it clear at the start and then don't mention it again until he tries to break it. (Maybe get little cards printed up with STOP on one side and the rules on the other???) . Maybe even explain it to them as to why you have the rule.
No doubt some (ie Many) guys will think that you'll break the rule for them (SInce they are sooooo wonderful) and you may choose to do just that. But the question you need to answer is, "Do you want to date a guy who thinks he's all that? Or would you prefer a guy who will RESPECT your rule."

It sounds completely fair (Although personally I'd allow a peck on teh cheek for the first date.....but then I'm just a man) and I wouldn't get tooo abrasive (Because you might scare off those that would have respected your rule...coming off as so conceited that men desire you (Not saying you are, but if you keep bashing them over the head with the rules when they ain't trying to break it...) ).
Just say "Hey, you're taking me out, so you know my dating rules are.......I have these rules because of ........., and if you can't accept them, then there's the door." .

How to get over being rejected
Posted: 5/9/2007 1:40:44 PM
Hey Yoyanna.

First off, and I can't stress this enough, if you are seriously contemplating suicide (Sometimes people say that but don't really mean it) then seek profesional help right away. It may be over-reacting, but I doubt anyone on thiese boards can help you if you feel that bad. You must take care of yourself.

Okay, now with that out of the way....I don't know you so I can't say what your good and bad points are (And EVERYBODY has both good and bad points), hopefully you know these, but the thing you gotta do is live your life, and not somebody elses. It may take some time, but you'll find a good guy...there are tons of them out there. Be happy for your friend, and hope that you will find your love (Like hers) when the time is right. You're young, you'll learn, and if I've learned anything about the way you're feeling, it'll just mean that you'll appreciate that special guy more when you do find him.
Remember, your old boyfriend is histroy, Forget about him ,and his new girl (You mentioned wantin to know what she had that you didn't), never compare yourself to someone else in that way.
Getting dumped hurts (We all been there). It takes time to get over....but eventually you do....
Maybe its best if you don't rush into anything just yet...take things slow, casual...have fun (Not THAT kinda fun) and remember there is far more to life than just men. Personally some of my best relationships came when I was just out having fun, not looking for that special somebody.
And above all else,'re good're smart enough...and doggone it, People LIKE you!

Posted: 5/9/2007 1:06:09 PM

You are very passionate about this subject for reasons I don't know, but YOUR logic is as flawed, comparing the guilt of rape to murder. And are you seriously enacting the "She may have said no but she probably wanted it!" argument? I thought that kind of crap went out of style in the 70s.
Read the paper much? Google "duke rape case". 3 million bucks to defend youself against a hooker's word. These three guys almost lost their lives, BECAUSE OF A BIASED legal system. It's because of a lack of passion from men that a woman can send you to jail by simply pointing a finger at you. If you have a son to raise, be very affraid for him. (April 12, 2007 ) for the story

In our efforts to protect women, we started shooting men.

comparing the guilt of rape to murder
You're an idiot.

Okay, did you even read my post at all, or just enough to realize I disagreed with you, so clearly I must be wrong in your mind?
Did you read this line
Yeah, sometimes I don't doubt that women cry wolf and not every man who is accused of rape or abuse of a woman is in fact guilty....but some are
which I wrote? It was my first comment directed at you, and pretty much makes your reply to me completely pointless (Why try and convince me of something that any 12 year old could have seen I already agree with.)
However you seem to be of the opinion that in the history of mankind no man has ever truley been guilty of raping a woman, because she always really wanted it.
Your arguments here seem fueled with anger and your manner is extremely insulting to anyone who dares disagree with you, even if they are doing so in a calm and respectful manner. I questioned you, and I'm an idiot. Others are
called far worse. And your attitude about women...well it seems pretty hostile.
Have you been falsely accused before? Or have a friend that was?
Are you just really burned out and venting?
Do you need a hug?

Wow...just gotta

To the OP....I've missed some of this thread (Skimmed over a lot of posts) so in response to your first, original post....(Parapharsed) "She won't have sex after 2 months. (Is likely 3 by now...unless things have changed) what do I do?"
You could
A : Talk to her about it? Mature people in a serious relationship often find that communication can help. I would recommend something more sophisticated than "Baby I want you bad, so when we gonna do it?", but that is the general brunt of what you're looking to say to her, so use that as the guidepost when choosing your words.
B: Leave. If this is so important to you, and she isn't getting your hints,a nd talking with her about it is out for some odd reason, then you'd probably be happier just closing this one chapter, nd moving onto someone else.

As to the point some people are making about the girl (Who we know little to nothing about), yes sex is a very special thing for some people and they choose to be careful about who they do it with. Based on the OPs first post, I'd say if his girl is choosy about such a thing, she has shown excellent judgement in waiting. If this is how he thinks after 7 weeks, then he's got some maturing to do. just my opinion.

Just curious, does she know about these forums? Would be funny if she had read all this.....

And to crashtestedok...
Yeah, sometimes I don't doubt that women cry wolf and not every man who is accused of rape or abuse of a woman is in fact guilty....but some are. You are very passionate about this subject for reasons I don't know, but YOUR logic is as flawed, comparing the guilt of rape to murder. And are you seriously enacting the "She may have said no but she probably wanted it!" argument? I thought that kind of crap went out of style in the 70s.

The OP made the comment "I don´t want to pressurise her or get her drunk or anything, but when I´m with her I can only think about sex, now!." Pressuring her is one thing, but getting her drunk so that she'll have sex.....dude...that is NOT cool. Morally, there is a fine line between that and dropping a date rape drug in her drink...and legally...well legally I don't know how fine a line there is between those two.....or if one exists.
That he would suggest doing such a thing to somebody he claims that he may love, shows me that he either doesn't quite understand what love is, or places way more importance on sex than is probably healthy.

Just my 2 cents....take it for what its worth.

My guess is that different people have different opinions on when things should start being exclusive. Perhaps those who are demanding it early on are not (Or Not just) control freaks, but people who got involved before, only to get the "Well there is somebody else" speech.

Personally I think its up to each couple to decide when they want to start being exclusive, and if that don't work for both of you then things may not work at all....
I find it odd that people would want to be exclusive before they've met face to face....but to each their own.....(Heck I gotta go out with a person a few times before I am sure if even want to keep seeing them casually...let alone seriously)

Romance.....a thing of the past ???
Posted: 5/8/2007 1:46:17 PM
Everyone loves romance, the problem is, it takes work.
ROmance ain't dead, but for a lot of people, it just ain't worth the effort.

Too many forget that it can be small simple gestures that cna nurture romance. It seems many are looking for those huge grand romantic things.

I'm not the most romanitc guy in the world, but I try,a nd I got a few tricks......

Here's a hint for guys that want to impress women....FLOWERS!
Some of you laugha nd say "MrKwyd, you dummy, that's a pretty obvious thing to suggest. Why not say 'remember to breath" as well." But its true. The number of dates I've had where I've given my date some flowers and she's been floored by that (and may add "No guy has EVER bought me flowers before") may stun you. I consider it a must. Any girl I'm interested in enough to want to go out with, deserves some flowers (AT the very least). Its not a grand romantic gesture, but its a good start.

Romance is long as we work at it.

What is the last movie you've seen in the theatre or vid...?

I liked Spidey 3 (The comic Book geek in me) but the plotholes were enormous, and there were all sorts of things just popping up out of no where, or that didn't make sense, if you care to consider them.

And I love that the Spidey powers now consist of "Spider-dancing" and "SPidey-jazz piano".
As my one friend pointed out, the 2 big issues were
1) Coulda used some explanation here and there about certain things. and
2) THey'd do a scene, and something would happen, and then they'd forget about it completely, like the next scene their was no mention of it at all.

One of the rumors I heard a while back was that Sam Rami never planned to do Venom, as he didn't like the character, so maybe it was forced upon him by the studio so he just put a lousy effort into it.

Of course it could all be worse....after all, in the last film of his, Superman became a stalker-esqe deadbeat dad.
"Well honey, your daddy choose to go to another planet, so I'm gonna shack up with that mutant guy with the glasses...."

I'd like to do my part for the war war 2 that is...either McHale's Navy or Hogan's Heroes......either one, they sure made war time look like a lot of fun. (I know it ain't that way in the real world)
