Bad messages from good movies

Love the post Top 10 Bad Messages From Good Movies over at GeekDad.

My favourites:

6. Kissing sleeping women you don’t know will wake them up and lead to them falling in love with you (from Sleeping Beauty and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs).

5. If you’re a really good person, but in a lousy situation, simply wait around and eventually good things will just happen to you (from Cinderella).

3. Even tough women who aren’t afraid to fight aren’t as important as the men they fight alongside (from the Star Wars movies).

2. It’s OK to completely change your physical appearance and way of life for the person you love, even if he makes no sacrifices at all (from The Little Mermaid).

Read the full list with complete commentary over at GeekDad.


Probability of discontinuation vs product value

When I find a product I really value, chances are the manufacturer will discontinue it.

WGC's take on the "Save Local TV" and "Stop the TV Tax" Campaigns

The Writers Guild of Canada (WGC) (the organization that represents close to 2000 writers of drama, comedy, animation, childrens and documentary programs) made a video trying to give some context to the "Save Local TV" and "Stop the TV Tax" Campaigns.

QOTD: Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater

Does anyone know who the orginal author for this is?

Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater.
If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.
If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.
If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.
If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.
She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.

Battle of the blades - Can you do it?

I admit it. I love Battle of the Blades. I hope Marie-France gets well soon, perhaps in time for the final show.

I think that Pelletier's "Can you do it?" YouTube clips are a fabulous idea! Learn a little figure skating while we enjoy watching figure skating! Just in time to warm up for the Olympics too.

What I find frustrating is how these clips are titled with the prefix "Battle of the blades - Can you do it? Challenge ..." Which means the rest of the title is often hidden. I've inventoried the ones I could find below, with more meaningful titles:

Oct 7: Spinning

Oct 14: Waltz Jump

Oct 22: Arabesque

Oct 28: Edges

Nov 4: Turns

Nov 10: Toe Picks and Jumps

The question, however, still remains: Can you do it? (Me, not so much.)
