Who Wants To Be As Broke As They Were When They Got Here?

I almost want to feel bad for this poor guy. He’s got his big moment on national television. Brimming with confidence, he tells a nice story about how the show inspired him to embrace being a smart nerd and to go to medical school. And then he blows the first question that whoever it is …

Welcome To The 90s, And To Insta-Cart

I don’t know what my favourite part of this video is. The deconstruction of the name “Insta-Cart”, the realization of where babies come from, the delivery windows that sounded a lot like what happened when Carin and I tried to use modern Instacart for the first time last year, the terms and conditions, the fees, …

Can You Help Me With My Bone? Uh…I Mean Can I Help You With Your Phone?

I’m not excusing anything that Juan Esteban Ramirez may have done and I don’t want to go full victim blamer (it’s your right to have naked photos of yourself in your own possession without fear of some creep pilfering them for personal gratification), but why are we handing over our phones to some fella at …

Alexa, Send The Time Machine To 1988

Tansy, the double digit doggy!

Poor Shmans is overdue for an update, so here goes. Believe it or not, Tansy is 10 years old. She turned 10 last month. Also, I just learned this year that she shares her birthday with Clint Eastwood! I find that kind of amusing, because I had a coworker who used to call the Shmans …

Hello, Humane Society? I Have A Dead Cat. Bye.

Back a while ago, I ran into a situation that really made me think. A neighbour of mine had a cat that suddenly passed away at home, and she wasn’t sure how she was going to take care of the body. To make things worse, she didn’t have a vet here, so she couldn’t call …

This Little Light Of Mine, I’m Gonna Know When It Shines

I just saw this video from someone who just came back from guide dog class at GDB. She’s showing off something new that they sell, called the Audio Beacon Safety Light. Its most important function is to light up at night so that you can be seen. But it has a very cool feature of …
