The small town of Cherry Tree, outside of Pittsburgh, has gone batshit crazy and is considering making it a law that every household must have a gun and ammo stored within it at all times...
Oh, and here's that quote that Beyonce said about Hudson: "I wish that I could have gained 20 lbs. and played Effie (the character)".
Gwen Stefani has successfully modified herself in order to make money off of this whole "wigger" fad, and I for one salute her. A talented singer who is not getting recognition decides to re-invent herself and her image in order to become famous again. Good job, you have officially sold out. w00t...
Emo trash and all that crap sold quite well over the holidays, it seems... evidently, people like to feel like shit at Christmastime :-P
New food fad: everything you could ever want, inside cones...
And here's something for Brennan. Some guy named Geoff Lapp is making awesome Jazz music it seems, but no one's paying any attention to him because he usually plays at little clubs that aren't too well-known. His new CD, Stained Glass, with a sample on geofflapp.com (two f's, and two p's) is apparently quite old-school or something. You might want to check it out.
A guy named Patrick Tower (Sergeant in the Canadian military) has been awarded with the Star of Military Valour (which is just under the Victoria Cross), and he's the only person ever to receive it. He's being all cool and calm and isn't letting it get to his head, but the guy is basically a hero.
He's 34 years old, and has served for 16 years. He's got a wife and kids too.
What he did was he traveled in a convoy out to a lone outpost station in the middle of nowhere, and they were ambushed. A whole bunch of guys got killed initially, but when Tower's commanding officer was killed, he manned up to the situation and took command. He took the platoon medic and another soldier out across 150 meters of open ground, whilst under continuous heavy fire from enemy small arms (i.e. not mounted machineguns or anything) and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) so that he and his group could give assistance to the wounded. Needless to say, he's a lucky bastard. But yeah, this guy is a real hero. Those sons-of-bitches wanted some, and he gave them both barrels.
Oh, and the guy is from B.C., in case you're wondering.
Vladimir Putin: "He turned out to be a very strong man, he raped ten women... we all envy him!" - Whilst saluting Israeli President Moshe Katsav, after police had announced that there was sufficient evidence to charge him with rape
Apparently, that book A Million Little Pieces has a ton of false stuff in it, or something...
"They were right about us not having a plan." - Klein, responding to criticisms AFTER he was out of office for good...
Big surprise there...
The current president of Pepsi (i.e. the pop company) once stated that the U.S. is the "middle finger" of the world.
Evgeni Malkin = next Sergei Fedorov, at the very least.
The guy who discovered a tenth planet in the Solar System (named Eris), which was then termed as a dwarf planet along with Pluto (because they were too lazy and stubborn to accept Eris as a tenth planet, so they made Pluto a dwarf too), originally wanted to name it Xena, after that stupid TV show's main character... thank God the committee came in and told him that it wasn't happening.
Agnostic psycho-feminist Michelle Bachelet has become Chile's first female president, giving half her cabinet positions to women. Not saying that treating women as equals is a bad thing, but when it comes before treating everyone as equals, I think there's a definite problem...
Peter MacKay and Condoleezza Rice are getting close...
Ah, and you just gotta love how a Saudi prince now owns the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec...
Rumors persist that Lance Armstrong has a gay lover...
And Americans of course own The Hudson's Bay Company now, along with a good bit of our heritage. Not like we care though... we're too busy buying shit from Wal-Mart.
Alberta and B.C. made a trade agreement (TILMA) in April, giving Ontario a nice kick in the nuts.
And that's it for now. I have more, but I need to do some work.

In due time.
Right now, I have some interesting news thingies:
Apparently, the French Horn and the Oboe are the hardest instrument to play (according to the latest Guiness Book of World Records).
Justin Trudeau is running for a spot in the next election.
Pakistani theological universities/schools (called madrasas) are training new recruits in the same way al-Qaeda does. In other words, their supporters from the Taliban are encouraging suicide attacks just so they can reclaim Afghanistan for themselves. They used to abhor this method of attack, but they now endorse it fully because they just don't seem to give a damn about committing, as they put it, "a cowardly act".
A town in Sweden wants to change its name from the current title of "Fjuckby".
A 100-year old man named Buster Martin finally took his first sick leave of his entire life, due to an operation he needs done to remove an in-grown toenail. He is a mechanic for a British plumbing company.
An Australian biotech company has created a form of sugar that looks like brown sugar, yet is safe for diabetics. Its glycemic index (GI) is only 52, compared with normal sugar's at 60. Apparently, it still tastes the same as normal sugar.
An article in the December Maclean's magazine about how companies are trying as hard as they can to not turn young girls into "sexdolls" by selling them the shit they should be getting when they're 16+, but rather they are trying to help them become "better shoppers" earlier on in life. Meh, why not? What says "economic and social freedom" better than a baby tanktop that says "My Mommy's A M.I.L.F."?
And yes, that is being sold in a line of clothing for babies called Pimpfants, that uses the slogan "It's a kid thang"... for the love of God, I wish these people would get hit on the road by a fucking tanker truck and die.
Texas is putting forth a law before their constituency that, since the debacle with Dick Cheney's infamous quail-shooting vacation (lol), has brought up the necessity of a new law stating that the blind be allowed to hunt with laser-sights...
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (from Iran) thinks he's God or some shit now...
Eva Longoria is a lesbian slut...
Tony Blair (British PM) still looks like Satan Incarnate...
Vladimir Putin (Russian President) is a bully and a very underhanded and evil man...
When Borat became a huge hit, the big execs in Hollywood who treated him like trash got the biggest "Fuck You" of their lives :-P
Beyonce Knowles is being a total bitch because one of her co-stars from Dreamgirls (I think it's Jennifer Hudson) is in line to get nominated for an Oscar or something. She's had some pretty harsh remarks about her lately, mostly about her weight or something...
During the Holocaust, in North Africa, a gang of Arabic peoples went and fought off the Germans and protected the Jews. This was apparently only recently found out, but needless to say neither the Jews nor the Arabs living there like the idea that one helped the other stay alive.
Why the hell does Muhammad's head get chopped off in Mozart's opera Idomeneo?
And why does John the Baptist's head get lopped off in Richard Strauss' Salome?
Former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, during his outgoing address, basically told the world to get its shit together...
An article about how foreigners are coming here (Canada) as refugees, getting citizenship, and then running back to their homeland, with said citizenship in tow (they now have two citizenships). As far as I'm concerned here, Canada is giving refugees the privilege of coming into our country so that they can enjoy a better life that is free of religious persecution, genocidal cleansing, and all that kind of retarded shit.
Now, if refugees and foreigners are coming here just to do nothing but hang out and leech off of our country, I say they need to get the fuck out of here right now. If they have nothing to contribute to our society, then they need to go back to whatever shithole they came from.
I know damn well though that many foreigners are earning their keep here (ex. that Ali kid in my Math 30 class, and guys like Athma), but for those bastards out there who are treating our country like a fucking Super-8 Hotel, can I please ask you to go back to your shitty third-world pissing ground and stay there?
I'm all for immigration and freedom of movement, but what I just can't fucking stand is when a person is allowed into our free and profitable nation, only to end up leeching off of society and undermining everything we stand for. So to sum up, basically the bottom line is this: we let you in here so that you could do something productive for yourself and for us. If you can't accomplish said feat, or at least try to accomplish it, get the fuck out.
Anyways, the U.S. is planning on giving up on southern Iraq and creating a new Kurdish state in the north, where the people are far more trustworthy and non-psychotic. This will piss off the Turks, but at least it's something of a victory.
In California, egg producers (i.e. companies that sell eggs) are gassing old chickens that cannot lay many eggs anymore with carbon monoxide and tossing their carcasses into big compost heaps. It usually works, but every once in a while, half-dead chickens climb out of the piles and stagger about until they die...
A lady who is 21 already has six kids now (if what they have said in this Maclean's here is right), with the last two being conjoined twins who are connected at the head. They were born October 25th, 2006.
More in next journal...

Two X-Men series that I found.
The first one is the series that made it off the ground, and still rocks to this day.
The second one is a new series I found that apparently only lasted one episode, but its theme song has an awesome part in the middle of it :-P
X-Men (lost series)
