Social Experiment

I blogged this on my other site because it felt more relevant there. But it belongs here and everywhere.

The "experiment" these guys really proved why I love Canada. We don't just talk the talk, we walk it. I hope I would have the balls to step in and protect someone being picked on like the guy in this "experiment". Hell, I even hope I would punch the guy in the mouth who was being a racist asshole.

Facebook Trending Stupidity Continues

And now the continue saga of Facebook Follies. Just when you think Facebook can't make itself look stupider they find a way. Look at the Trending headline about Rob Ford from this morning.

What is wrong with that trending headline you ask? Well, Rob Ford didn't run against his bother. So he didn't defeat his brother. Rob Ford ran for his old City Council spot and won it. Doug Ford ran for Mayor of Toronto against John Tory, Olivia Chow, and some others who just aren't that memorable. He lost.

You would be safe saying John Tory defeats Doug Ford.

You would be a fucking moron to say Rob Ford defeats Doug Ford.

Facebook. Fucking morons. Damn if that doesn't sound right to me.

The Golden Age

While rereading "The Game" by Ken Dryden I came upon a quote I always liked and is so true.

"Nothing is as good as it used to be, and it never was. The "Golden Age" of sports," the "Golden Age"of anything, is the age of everyone's childhood."
