This "information superhighway" thing is pretty fun.

Yay! Sofi, Kem and Denise (or "Sofa", "Ken" and "denies" as spell checker calls you) have all seen my nerdy handiwork. And denies' friends are coming over to fix our internet today.

So now that I seem to have developed a strong fan base, I think I can start getting all preachy to the three of you. CALL OFF THE THIRD WORLD DEBT!!

I actually learned all about the debt in Honduras in one of my classes. It's going to take a lot of years of working in Kathy-Lee's sweatshops to pay that fucker off. This stupid guy in the class started saying he doesn't see how buying fair trade products helps the producers. Various people tried to explain it to him. Oh well.

In other news, Canada is now ranked fourth by the U.N. in the Human Development Index. We have to go fuck things up in Sweden so we can get back to # 1. Maybe we could spread the plague or something. No, their efficient and accessible health care system would wipe that out quickly. Oh well, four isn't bad.

Kem, the US is # 17 (out of 17) on the Human Development Index. So go develop some humans in the slums of Seattle. Ha ha! you live in a crappy country! Mind you, Montreal has the highest poverty rate of any major city in Canada. No wonder 99 cent pizza places abound.

Ok, enough of this "learning" crap. I'm off to huff things. And also to go hang out with the mentally ill (or "crazies" to use the new politically correct term) at my field placement. I hope the pantsless guy isn't around today. But first, over to get some food from the cafeteria in Shatner. The one under his toupee is better than the one in the girdle.

Did you hear about Paul Martin calling off Ethiopia/Ghana/some other loser country's debts to Canada? Pretty fly for a white guy.

I just read that in the big pile O' newspapers that accumulate during the week. Maybe I have magical powers. Or I probably just saw the headline and forgot about it.
