I watched the premier of a new TV show called Revolution last night.

It's an interesting premise where electricity suddenly stops working so the world is in a perpetual blackout.

The show takes place 15 years after this blackout happens.

I won't get into too many details as they don't really matter. I'm only writing this to declare this show dead before it even gets going.

I just couldn't bring myself to care about ANY of the characters and some bits just made me laugh when they probably shouldn't have.

Ah well. Nice try. Maybe next time.

Is Quebec Leaving Yet? 
So Quebecers have gone and elected a whole pile of separatists again.

I know they don't have a majority, but maybe we'll get lucky and they'll hit that milestone next time around.

Last time they went in that direction there was a giant national swell of unity sentiment.

"Please don't leave us. We'll give you presents" said the rest of Canada.

This time, I'm not really hearing much at all. It's like people just don't care anymore. The honeymoon is over and we're just not getting any benefits for putting out anymore.

So far as I'm concerned, Quebec can go off on their merry way. Good luck to y'all.

Just don't ask us for alimony.

Riding Words in the Streets 
Here's a creepy bit of info. For me to write WEASEL in the streets around Highland Creek on my bike, I need to ride exactly 66.6km. Oooh... spooky!

You Want Bath Salts? Seriously? 
Now, I know that I'm awfully far removed from anything resembling teen culture these days, so I don't claim to have any insights into what they are or are not into or what they do and don't know about.

So maybe someone with more insight can help me out here.

Had anyone heard anything in these parts about the drug known as Bath Salts before the incident hit the news about some naked guy trying to eat another guys face in Florida?

There's an article in the Star today about some kid trying to find some to buy so he could sell it to his friends. By all accounts, he appears to be a complete idiot, but that's beside the point.

What I can't figure out is why there would be anyone out there who, having heard the stories about what this drug apparently does to you, is thinking "Hey! I want to try that!"

I mean... some kids think drugs are cool and don't grasp the impact they can have on the rest of their lives. Just a fun way to kill some time, I guess. But when something new comes out, and the only news of it is that it can turn you into a raving psychotic, do you really think THAT is the experience you're looking for??
