Bad advice

Metro Winnipeg had an article in this weekends newspaper called "5 streets worth a summer stroll". In order they are:
Wait.. what? Selkirk?  I mean... seriously?  Not that there aren't great businesses in the north end.. gunns bakery.. the windmill.. various meat stores nearby like European meats on burrows.. white stop restaurant.. but I would never recommend a summer stroll on Selkirk in this day and age.

Funny news reports

"Fled the scene on a scooter"
A guy was caught stealing catalytic converters in Winnipeg and cbc ended the news report with that line.  I cracked up.

Free Press said the same thing... heres a link.

As a male one thing I hate is mall stores where it is required to walk through a high density perfume zone to enter.  Shoppers drug mart I'm looking primarily at you. 

I don't need perfume, I don't want to buy perfume, so why even pretend like it' going to happen?  It's not.

Remember when garden city shopping centre was a hip and cool place to go?

Me neither. But they are installing a large chess board in the center court.  

Will they use human chess pieces like in the Simpsons?  I doubt it but we can always hope.

 I remember the old chess board near where Eatons was.. it was pretty popular though it seemed to attract the same few old people who played all day.  And the new one looks like it'll be pretty cool looking.

Grand opening is on Thursday July 19th.

Right in front of the Dollarama.

Metro Winnipeg paper.

One thing that bugs me about the metro newspapers is when people throw their dirty kleenex tissues in the box.  And they stay in there forever.  I end up leaving the newspaper rather than risk touching the gross waste.

So I'm Standing outside using my MTS 3g cell phone when all of a sudden I lose my 3G signal.  I look up, GIANT BILLBOARD meters away claiming "BEST COVERAGE FOR MANITOBANS". which are weasel words if I ever saw them.  Why is it not "Best coverage IN Manitoba"?  Probably because they can't technically say that? 

Also odd is using my MTS phone with 3G and getting Google ads on it from MTS.  You'd think they could tell I'm already using MTS, but there you go.

Stupid facebook and twitter posts

I hate twitter and Facebook and the foolish corporate sellout of the social internet they represent.  But even worse I hate idiotic posts like the following.

A coyotes fan shocked at the franchise value of the Winnipeg jets and the fact that they lost money.. only problem is that magazine clip is from November 2011 and specifically state most number are based on the Atlanta Thrashers, before the jets even played a game in Winnipeg.  I'm not saying the Jets are going to be 100% profitable, who knows.  They'll have good years and bad, I'm sure.  But to tweet out a bunch of junk about the Winnipeg Jets losing money in 2010-2011.. that's just pathetic.

Then there are people who post stupid photoshops of back to the future saying that today is the date doc and Marty went to the future.  Gullible fools all of them.
I hate them so much.  STOP IT.  JUST STOP.

Such stupidity.
