UFO? Birds? Alien Gas?

Posted on by chris.mcewin

Check out this picture:

Is it proof of alien life? Ok, that might be a little farfetched but some people are saying this ring just might be a UFO.
The photo (and video) was captured by a 16-year-old in the UK. The black ring stayed there for a few minutes before disappearing, but not before she got something recorded on her phone.
 

 
Not surprisingly there’s a lot of theories floating around, from a faked vide to some weird weather phenomenon, birds or a swarm of mating insects/
 
However, Ben Hansen, a former FBI special agent and host of the Syfy Channel’s “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” said that as far as he’s concerned, “The ring definitely is not a swarm of birds or insects, nor a weather phenomenon. I believe the girl’s video is real and not faked.”
 
To be honest I can’t say I believe this one – but at the same time that doesn’t mean anything. The more we learn about our universe and beyond the harder it is to believe we really are alone. What do you think?

Men Don’t Like Tears…Especially In Public Places

Oh the 30s, it was a classier time as proven by these incredibly helpful and in no way sexist dating tips. Who knew it was useless to talk to a man while dancing, and doing so runs the risk of causing said dancing male to become irate.
 
It’s a wonder anyone was successful at mating with “help” like this. Although to be fair – I think if we replaced the bra with “belt” in the “if you need a bra wear one” and applied it to both sexes we’d all be a lot happier.
 
Check out the rest of these “tips” from the 30s here

Uhhhhhhh…You Know What, I’m Good

Random Question: You see food in a public bathroom…do you put it in your mouth?
 
Was talking to a buddy who made a comment about seeing mints on the counter of a bathroom. I just started laughing and asked who’d eat anything that had been sitting in a public washroom, and then had others chime in to say they’ve seen a few places where people leave snacks/candy out – and without naming names, some are cool with helping themselves.
 
So let’s put this to the test in a (totally anonymous and completely unscientific) poll

What’s the best job in 2014??

Posted on by chris.harding

Every year since 1988, the Jobs Rated report has measured different careers through a variety of metrics. Understanding the challenges and rewards of a career is especially important given how vested we are in our work life.(This may not be a true reflection of YOUR job as the study is based on careers in the US.)

Won’t Someone Think Of The Children!?

Posted on by chris.mcewin

The Beer Store has launched their campaign against putting alcohol in convenience stores, by basically saying once it happens kids are going to have non-stop access to booze to fuel their underage drinking. What do you think?
 

 
Personally, I just don’t buy this argument because:
 
1)      Historically speaking, in the provinces that sell booze in corner stores, there aren’t roving gangs of drunk underage kids. In fact even by searching around for stats, there wasn’t any definitive study that proved selling beer this way led to a an increase in underage drinking.
 
2)      Look I’m not proud of it and I’m not bragging but truthfully, my friends and I sure did drink before we were 19. And we had different ways of getting drinks from The Beer Store & LCBO. Suffice it to say, we weren’t always ID’d regardless of policy.
 
3)       Now that the LCBO is moving into grocery stores (some of which have their own wine kiosks that might have trouble competing – another argument that province loved using when it was someone else competing against their stores) this seems kind of ludicrous. You’re telling me, you can sell it from the physical storefronts, and in grocery stores but because it is the Province in control – NO underage kid will ever be served, but put it into corner stores and suddenly Ontario is going to become a Post Apocalyptic Mad Max-esque wasteland of drunken kids?
 
Ok, so maybe the Mad Max comparison is a little ludicrous, but let’s be honest – so it that commercial put out by the Beer Store. And I say that as a guy that loves the Beer Store.
Weigh in with your thoughts

Pretty Sure He’d Like Someone To Fix The Pothole

Posted on by chris.mcewin

This is Brian Aylward, and Brian is a little miffed about this pothole in St. John’s
(fair warning…there’s a bit of language in this one so be careful who you watch it around)
 

 
Ok, we’ve got some doozies in town, but pretty sure Brian here takes the cake with his pothole.
 
It seems to be a subtle message, but it seems like he would enjoy it if someone fixed this pothole.
