Canada's Family Day is bad for Canada, families.

All of the stores are closed. What is the point of having the day off? I can't get anything done. I might as well be at work.

Seems bad for the economy to deny me an opportunity to earn and spend money.

Liberal budget response = FAIL

Ignatieff's response to Harper's budget is a complete failure :

"By giving what is in effect unconditional support to the Conservative government's new budget, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff has squandered an opportunity.

He has missed a chance to force Stephen Harper's government to markedly improve Tuesday's budget to plug gaping holes in its approach to recession and eliminate small, but loathsome ideological leftovers slipped into its back pages.

The Liberal leader's requirement that, as the price of his support, the government provide three updates over the next 11 months is meaningless."

Ignatieff blows chance to aid country, Toronto Star, Jan 29 2009

You know, I have more respect for the Conservatives than the Liberals. The Cons, at least, seek power in order to advance an agenda; an evil, terrible agenda, but at least they have purpose. The Liberals seek power for the sake of power. They have no particular goals to achieve, no principles to uphold, no vision to realise. They just want to get back on the teat.

Dion was embarrassing, but at least he discovered a spine and joined the other opposition parties in challenging Harper on his arrogant economic update. Then in swooped Iggy to blow all the leverage that a coalition opposition held, gaining nothing in return. This isn't just a political game for Liberals to gamble on in order to better position themselves for the next election; this is a global economic meltdown that impacts every single Canadian, particularly those most vulnerable to economic upheaval. Iggy had a chance to force real & meaningful change in this budget, and he chose to sit on his hands. I expect we can look forward to a whole lot more of this in the future - particularly during each of Harper's three self-written economic report cards.

Fred Durst's mom has a Twitter account.

"I love getting to learn tweeter stuff and stuff because I surprise my brain that I can constantly step out of the old old box."

And who else? Well, Fred Durst, who's friends with Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore... Kutcher also has a Qik account and records endless hours of him talking & swearing at his phone.

Be careful, celebrities. You are not allowed to do normal people things. And the web is not a friendly place... you've basically just issued a challenge to every elite hax0r on the planet. This will not end well.

p.s.: Mrs. Durst, kindly refrain from discussing your old, old box in public.

Remember several months ago, when I was lamenting the absence of a breathalyser attachment to lock down my keyboard in moments of overzealous intoxication?

Google has come up with Gmail Goggles, which automatically kicks in late at night, forcing you to solve a series of simple math questions in a certain time before it will send your mail.

This is why google wins.

There's a surprise ending.

You know who has their finger on the pulse of internet culture? Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Some might ask, "Is it a good idea for the House of Representatives to post cat videos on youtube?" The answer, surprisingly, is no. Not at all.

Set phasers to stun.

Stunned. I am stunned. This, is stunning.

CBC.ca: Quebec father asks court to clarify parental rights in grounding case

A Gatineau father has asked Quebec's highest court to rule on the rights of parents after a lower court ordered he overstepped his bounds by prohibiting his daughter from going on a school trip.

The Quebec Court of Appeal in Montreal heard arguments Tuesday in the case of a 12-year-old girl who took her father to court after she was grounded.

In June 2008, the girl was preparing to go on a three-day trip with her Grade 6 class to Quebec City to celebrate their graduation from elementary school.

However, the father told the girl she was not allowed to go after she disobeyed his orders to stay off the internet.

The girl, whose parents are divorced, got a lawyer and took the matter to Quebec Superior Court.

Judge Suzanne Tessier ruled in June that the father didn't have the right to bar the girl from the outing.

In her ruling, the judge said there was no reason for the punishment to stand, since the girl was living with her mother, even though the father had custody at the time. The judge said the punishment was also excessive.

The father has since given up custody of his daughter. However, his lawyer said he appealed to clarify the rights of parents in such situations because he still has custody of his three other children.

The man's lawyer argued before the three-member appeal panel Tuesday that he was only exercising his parental rights.

The judges have reserved their decision.
