It is either the stupidest mistake ever made or the most elaborate troll in the history of London. I am, of course, referencing the recent discovery that some photo peon inserted a poorly photoshopped image of Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag skating into the 2011 London Annual Report (as seen on LFPress). I am honestly completely… Continue reading Fun with Photoshop in London

Some parting thoughts on Troll Hunting 2011
A look back at some lessons learned from an encounter with a troll.
To catch a troll
As some of you probably know, I had a bit of a run-in with an Internet troll earlier this week. In my attempt to hire a new aid, I put up a job posting on kijiji. Unfortunately, a little brat decided to respond saying “I’m interested in taking care of your retard. is he fully… Continue reading To catch a troll
It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp
Jeff can’t even imagine what high school would have been like with the social networking technology available to teens now-a-days. Sexting definitely complicates the dating world a bit…although Jeff probably would have still spent most of his nights playing video games. Nerd. TRANSCRIPT: Cell 01 Flirty girl trying to ignore Tyler. Tyler: Yo, baby. Did… Continue reading It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp

Don’t Ignore the Invisible Gorilla
Humans are crap at multitasking. There I said it. I’m not talking chewing bubble gum and walking at the same time, but the real stuff–like trying to talk to someone while you’re reading a book.

I’m just thankful I have the proper permits…those mall cops take those stickers quite seriously. In other news, what exactly has Griff killed for? TRANSCRIPT: Cell 01 Rhett: Are you going to sign up for ODSP? Cell 02 Griff: I’m stackin’ too much paper my part-time job so I don’t qualify. Cell 03 Griff: S’okay though,… Continue reading Part-time Job

Cell 02 Harlem: Tell’um that mumbo jumbo you’ve been spewing all afternoon. Rhett: Converting physical labour into fetishized commodity is against the rules of nature. Cell 03 Principle: I think… Continue reading ODSP
This episode is dedicated to the fine folks at rTraction, a local web design company, who donate SO much time, money and energy to making London a better place. You don’t see that too often from a private business and they’re a business we can and should be really proud of. Keep up the great… Continue reading Forced Labour
Tim Hudak on Foreigners
Hrm. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard this speech before? I’m sure there’s a logical explanation… Like last election, we’re going to be putting up weekly attack ads on Mondays, except this time they will all be focused on Tim Hudak because, seriously, we can’t let this guy win.
