Urban Legends debunked

3 05 2004

In discussion with friends yesterday I realized that I believed an old urban legend that was simply not true! I actually thought that water swirled the other way when you went south of the equator but it actually doesn’t – totally false! I spent some time trying to fix up other inconsistencies in my thought process and found 2 other interesting ones here and here. And in my quest for more useless knowledge I turned to the internet when people believed that Marty McSorley actually spent hard time in jail for his stick incident about 3 years ago – I was sure that he didn’t have to.

My second brother Steve and his wife Lisa just had their very first child a few days ago named Elijah Steven Ray – the picture below pretty much sums up what kind of parents they’ll be – also there’s a nice picture of my oldest brother and his family that I hadn’t put up here yet…

Oh yeah – Calgary is up 3-2 over Detroit – go Flames!!

Yesterday we watched an old PBS special called Affluenza about the need for people to consume to feel good and how the media has played a huge part in that. The biggest forum they mentioned where that idea was directly fought was at AdBusters – which has a pretty cool website if you’re into that sort of thing. Along that line I’ve been watching foosball tables go on eBay and trying to figure out how I could get one into Canada not costing me as much as the table itself. More thinking will be required. I’ve also been thinking about a nice armstrap for the iPod – oh my it doesn’t end…
