I'm still alive!! 
Just didn't want anyone out there to start worrying. The wife and I have bought our first house and moved in and I've been off work getting everything in order.

Now I'm going to start paying property taxes. A whole new tax for me to watch get misappropriated.

Can you believe I only get my garbage picked up every other week? Yet city councellors get free bus passes... go figure!

I just think everyone should read this. 
I'm finally back online and all is well. I'm sure y'all missed me.

I don't really have time to write anything especially inspiring so I'll just post this link on the state of Islam. I just think it's very well written and everyone should read it.

Still slaving away at work. 
As it turns out, I don't work at Dollarama and I'm not some chick in Kitchener so I may have been a bit premature in declaring myself a millionaire.

It's a shame, really. The world is just going to have to go on being sucky without my intervention for a while longer.

At least it's nice to see some people winning big that seem unlikely to have become independantly wealthy on their own or unlikely to die before being able to enjoy it. Much better than when you see rich people or one-foot-in-the-grave old people win.

Speaking of which...

Last night as I dropped by Rona to pick some stuff up, an elderly but quite able-bodied couple pulled into a handicapped parking spot and trotted into the store. Sure enough, they've got a handicapped card in their windshield. Now I'm no doctor (or am I?), but if you don't at least need a stick to walk around, then I think you can park out in the sticks with the rest of us. Being retarded does not entitle you to a closer parking spot!!

Who will defend Lebanon??? 
"Who will defend Lebanon in case of a new Israeli offensive?" he asked. "The Lebanese army and international troops are incapable of protecting Lebanon," he said, flanked by Lebanese and Hezbollah flags.

That's from Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah. It just begs the question... would Lebanon need defending if Hezbollah didn't go around starting conflicts?


Now to answer his question... wouldn't the Lebanese army defend Lebanon if such defense were needed? As I understand it, they weren't involved in this ordeal because Israel wasn't attacking with the intent to hurt Lebanon but, rather, with the intent to hurt Hezbollah who was using Lebanon as their playground. So really, if Lebanon was in need of defense, it was against Hezbollah making them a target. Seems to me that Israel was actually helping them out in this regard. I don't recall hearing anything about the Lebanese army going in and stopping Hezbollah from keeping the conflict raging.

Maybe that just didn't make the news... but I doubt it.

Time to take over the world. 
So now that I'm a millionaire, who would like to help run my campaign?

NotWeasel for Prime Minister.

Or... rather... NotWeasel for... umm... member of parliament? Stupid political system.
