Chris Rock quotes of the week

This week’s quotes of the week come from Chris Rock. “If a woman tells you she’s twenty and looks sixteen, she’s twelve. If she tells you she’s twenty-six and looks twenty-six, she’s damn near fourty. “ “You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is ...

Halloween 2004 5

I decided to be an aviator for Halloween this year. I purchased a pilot’s uniform, and a pair of aviator glasses to go with it. My brother Tom is dressed up as a Special Forces Counter-Terrorist agent. We’re going to Devil’s Martini this evening, so if you’re looking for something to do in the Toronto ...

We’ll always remember you Opa

On Wednesday, October 29th, 2003, one year ago today, my Opa (Grandpa) passed away peacefully in his sleep in his 77th year. His name was Cornelis (Case) Veldhuizen. He had a very profound impact on my life. I spoke at his funeral, and I wanted to share my words from that day last year. “Over ...

Big Brothers of Toronto

I have recently joined the Big Brothers program here in Toronto. I wanted to urge anyone that this might interest to become a Big Brother or a Big Sister. I just spoke to the coordinator and in Toronto, there are a very large number of little brothers waiting for a match, and there are literally ...

3 Drown in SUV Accident

I’m very suprised that these poor ladies didn’t know (or weren’t able) to kick out the back windshield of their vehicle. This was something that I was taught when I took driving lessons, and you’d think that one of them would be able to do it, especially in the face of death. Apparently they used ...

Royal Navy Satan Worshipper

I don’t know whether to laugh at this or not. It’s very strange though. Excerpt:“That allows him to perform satanic rituals aboard and permits him to have a non-Christian Church of Satan funeral should he be killed in action.” So what are satanic rituals? Burning crosses? Poking people with a pitchfork? Ridiculousness. Here’s the link ...

George W. Bush’s resume

I came across a resume for President Bush, put together by a person named “Kelley Kramer” on [Link]. I’m not a fan of Bush, but I would still recommend taking this resume with a grain of salt. It is very biased and one-sided, but it’s still fun to criticize one of the worst Presidents in ...

A part of my life is missing

I’m missing a huge part of my life, and I can really feel it on a night like tonight. I’m at home, it’s 9:30PM on a Saturday night, and normally I would be just finishing watching the Leafs play a game on Hockey Night in Canada. I’d be watching the game with the boys, we’d ...

My message for Bush

I came across a Rap song called “Not In our Name” by DJ Spooky. I wanted to share the lyrics. We believe that as people livingin the United States it is ourresponsibility to resist the injusticesdone by our government, in our names Not in our namewill you wage endless warthere can be no more deathsno ...

Election quotes of the week

Since the US elections are coming up soon, I thought it was appropriate to post some election related quotes. “Suppose you were an idiot….And suppose you were a member of Congress….But I repeat myself”. (Mark Twain) “Ninety percent of the politicians give the other ten percent a bad reputation.” (Henry Kissinger) “Only two things are ...
