It does everything in reversing ageing effects: remove wrinkles and black spots, cure brain diseases, and is brilliant for skin. Sounds wonderful. Now how do we get this stuff exported and how much will it cost? With a fair market value exchange rate, I think we can probably important lifetime supplies of this stuff for…you get the idea.

Thoughts and prayers remain with Japan. Click on the title to link through. The destruction revealed in the before/after pictures by the sliders are horrifying in imagining the lives lost. Requiescat in pace.
My thoughts and prayers out to the people of Japan and all others who were affected by today’s earthquakes and subsequent tsunamis. The media coverage was stunningly rapid and fairly accurate, as usual in our postmodern day and age. But I have to say, the way they leap from one issue to the next is rather uncouth.
Yesterday, our headlines were plastered with Libya’s inner turmoil. Today, these earthquakes seems to have rocked that subject all the way back to Ouagadougou. Before Libya, we had Egypt. Before Egypt we had…well you get the idea. The way these are playing out in the news, it looks like these events are being dropped off the face of relevancy into the realm of non-issues like there’s no tomorrow.
Yes the earthquake is news of epic proportions that deserve the big headlines, but seriously, leave some room for the important events that are still occurring worldwide. Libya is still embroiled in a civil war that’s worse than ever and Egypt is still struggling with its newfound freedom. Yes the Earth spins on and life goes on, but really, relegation to the infinitieth page? Just because it has something to do with the earthquake doesn’t mean it goes on the front page. I do not need know about Twilight stars.
And the stuff on the front page that doesn’t involve the earthquake? Still idiotic. Shame on you Mr. Media.
March 9, 2011 will forever be a day to be remembered in infamy. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford finally dissolves the TCHC Board, Quebec employees at one of the few unionized Walmarts decide to lay waste to their own union, a New York teen faces two years in jail for strangling a hamster, and I decide to attempt another foray into the realm of actual blogging…kind of. Yes, I realize that technically it’s already March 10, but being a member in good standing of the League of Procrastinators: Toronto Chapter, I still consider it the 9th.
This marks a second time I open a gateway for the world to glimpse the convoluted going-ons in the contraption that some deem fit to call my mind. The first time I tried this resulted in some rant regarding blogging, human incompetence, and the need for some people to become white rhinos. Don’t ask. Those familiar with the DDPs featured on The Meandering Spork probably have an idea of the sort of eclectic madness that I spawn. Consider this an indefinite pilot project to see if any good comes of it. Stay tuned for further instances of insanity.
