Canadian Study Of Various Drugs Effects On Wood Spiders

We are all quite used to the warnings echoed to us thousands of times throughout our lives about how bad drugs are for our mind and body, and how important it is for us to to stay away from them. We are told that they will usually either turn us into complete idiots, needy junkies, or might even start destroying everything, and everyone we love.

We have been shown drug use analogies such as eggs frying in a frying pan, or a frying pan smashing an egg, we are being told that is what it feels like to be on drugs. It is not a very positive message to say the least, but really it lacks a lot of reality, and does not really explain what happens to our minds. I mean are we really supposed to believe that a drug addict will spend all of his money to feel like someone is frying his brain in a frying pan?

Thankfully the Canadian Government has released a new video which teaches us the real effects of drug use. Although similar studies have been done before in England where they feed drugs such as cocaine, heroine, LSD, Speed and Marijuana to spiders, this Canadian study has really taken this to a new level.

Please watch this important one minute video and realize the actual reason why drugs are illegal, and the dangers they hold.

Ladies First

I was out getting some products for the website the other day, and at one point was standing for quite a while waiting for a busy elevator to take me down a few floors. Ahead of me, among a dozen or so other hopeful waiters, were two Arabian looking  gentlemen speaking quietly to each other in their traditional white robes with the traditional white cotton sheet and band on their heads.

After a while a lady came up from behind us, and proceeded to push in front of the fifteen or so other people waiting for the elevator, all the way to the front of the line. After she got right up to the door, she turned back towards the two Arab gentlemen and said “Ladies first”.

WTF Ladies first? What about all the other women waiting before her? Are they not considered ladies or something? Beyond the fact she was not the only lady there, why should she go before the polite guys that were waiting in line, such as myself? Is she really that special? And then to top it off she speaks rudely to the  two Arabs, WTF is that about, did she think that all Arabs repress their women, so she had to  teach the two quiet guys a lesson in manners or something ?

How can someone so rude, ignorant, sexist, and obviously racist teach manners to anyone?

The elevator came, and we all fit in, so the budging did not seem to help her in any way.

As we were standing in the elevator, this “lady” then proceeded to flash a friendly smile at me, we were two white skinned people in Asia after all, and that would normally make us comrades, she was a nice looking blond, in her early 20’s, but I  turned my head away and did not give her a smile back, a person that acts so rude while pretending to teach people manners, is not someone I need to get to know any further.

Speaking of rude ladies that think they should go first, check out this video of a lady at a turnstile that pushes a man out of the way, and gets taught a lesson from the guy she pushed.

The guy is not my hero. I don’t like him any more than the rude lady. Just goes to show though what happens when two uncaring rude jerks run into one another.

I Am Very Disappointed In You

I have been saying for well over a year how great my customers are, I have had some nice e-mails and calls just to say how happy they are. In my many years of dealing with customers I have never such a good group to deal with.

Recently we had a not so good customer though, I know I am not supposed to talk badly about customers, but I want to, so I guess I will.

This guy sent us a e-mail to let us know he had not received his package yet, it was very late, it had been 25 days since we shipped it, and we had paid for the 10 day service.

Since we are aware that United States Postal Service has been really slow at delivering lately, and have also been updating their tracking system on the Internet slowly, I filed in a few forms, made some phone calls, and sent some faxes to find out where this package was. We have never lost a package so we don’t really think it could be completely lost.

Meanwhile this guy keeps e-mailing us, and mentions at one point he does not want to sign for the package when it gets there, he soon starts demanding an immediate refund, and all sorts of other things on almost an hourly basis.

In one of his e-mails he said to me, “I am very disappointed”

I held off on the refund, and waited for the investigation to finish, we are already into this shirt for almost $17 or so with purchasing, packing and shipping.

After a few days I get a phone call that the postal  investigation was finished, and this guy already had his shirt. What a dickhead, not only was he trying to scam us but he bothers to make it personal by saying he is disappointed in us.

So I would just like to say to this loser who tries to steal $20 items on the Internet:

Your the kind of scum we not only don’t want as a customer, but are sad that you even exist on this earth.

We here, are all very disappointed in you!

We Can No Longer Relate

I grew up like most Canadian boys, watching hockey and American sitcoms on televison, and listening to rock and roll. Times with my friends were shared discussing these simular interests, how such and such should have passed the puck, the joke so and so said, and how some new album was about to be realeased, these are the things that helped pass the time with my friends back in the day.

Since I have became a world traveler, which was before the Internet was available, I was not able to keep up with the sports of my home country, the sitcoms, or the popular new music etc. I gained more worldly interests, such as trance music, jazz, new age, all sorts of classical and popular music from all over the globe, literature, history, and world events etc. On a weekly basis, I started to read magazines such as Time, Foreign Affairs, and Newsweek, as well as reading local newspapers whenever I could. When I watch television I like to watch channels like History Channel, Discovery Channel, Local News, CNN, BBC, CBC, Bloomberg’s etc. On the Internet, I read a lot of Wiki, and other intelligent websites.

The boys back home however still spend their media time watching sitcoms, and sports on television, or listening to rock and roll in their car on the way to work each day, most of them tuned to the same station they did twenty years ago.

I still speak with my old friends, though sadly not much anymore. When I do, at some point in the conversation, I will unintentionaly,  speak over most of their heads, they are unable to understand me anymore, some of them are  completly unable to comprehend, or believe some of the facts I pull out of the world news, some just dont care.

I have evolved beyond our past relationships,  I miss my friends, but I can not regress back to the way I used to be over 20 years ago. I hope one day we can find a common interest, and be close again, but I realize this will probably never happen, because I don’t think I know any hockey players by name anymore, and they likely will never travel, or become interested in the world, so therefore, we can no longer relate.

Man Won’t Hug Tree Shirt

Man won't hug tree shirt

Awww come on man the tree just wants a hug – Click Image $19.99 USD

Trees are stupid, sticky, and smelly, they break the roads and sidewalks, and drop little pieces of themselves all over my house and car. I hate trees.

Oh I know the birds  like them, but who needs bird  poop on their cars, one time I had a bird poop on my head from a tree, and I didn’t like that either, if the tree wasn’t there than there would have been no bird poop on my head that day. Stupid birds in stupid trees, waking me up in the morning and pooping. If birds were civilized they would use the tree to wipe their bottoms like humans do.

I really like to cut down trees and burn them, the food I cook on the fire tastes especially good because I know it was cooked with tree.

At my work I help turn trees into  business reports, which we file away and never read again. This is what trees are for.
