From Buckle up, Bitches:

 

A man in the Florida supermarket tries to buy half a head of lettuce.

The very young produce assistant tells him that they sell only whole heads of lettuce. The man persists and asks to see the manager. The boy says he’ll ask his manager about it.

Walking into the back room, the boy said to his manager, “Some a**hole wants to buy half a head of lettuce.”

As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right behind him, so he added, “And this gentleman has kindly offered to buy the other half.”

The manager approved the deal, and the man went on his way.

Later the manager said to the boy, “I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from, son?”

“Canada, sir,” the boy replied.

“Well, why did you leave Canada?” the manager asked.

The boy said, “Sir, there’s nothing but whores and hockey players up there.”

“Really?” said the manager. “My wife is from Canada.”

“No sh*t?” replied the boy. “Who’d she play for?”

Cancer has been Cured (Several Times Already)!


From Grow Food, Not Lawns

From Grow Food, Not Lawns

From realfarmacy.com:

Cancer is a growing worldwide epidemic, with staggering statistics: 20,000 people dying of cancer every day; 1 person out of 3 will be faced with cancer at one point in their life; and 1 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year.

The standard treatment for cancer has been the same for many decades and is comprised of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, the latter two being toxic to healthy cells in the human

These treatments, as well as the research surrounding cancer, generate millions of dollars each year for the medical industry, with a typical cancer patient spending on-average $50,000 to treat the disease.

Over the last century, several natural cancer treatments have been developed and used to treat patients in the US and in other developed countries.

One example is a natural concoction of herbs called Essiac, created by nurse Rene Caisse in Canada in the 1920?s. Another is an herbal cure created by Harry Hoxsey, who funded clinics in 17 states before they were all closed down by the FDA in the late 1950′s.

And yet another is the Gerson Therapy, created by German doctor Maximilian Gerson, who was one of the first to suggest a nutritional approach to treating chronic disease in the 1940′s. You can buy the DVD at Amazon.com.

A fascinating documentary, “Cancer – The Forbidden Cures”, exposes the corruption of the cancer industry and the extreme measures they will undertake to discredit, imprison, and professionally destroy any physician who treats cancer patients naturally. (FULL LENGTH)

Again from Aboriginal Desert ART Centre:

World renowned artist and good friend of the Desert Art Centre Dorothy Napangardi has once again joined with us for an extended residency. Dorothy moved back into familiar surrounds this Sunday just past and has begun work on her much sough…t after Mina Mina Rock Hole story. This first work has been commissioned by an astute collector. Remember you too can commission an artwork – just contact us through our website for details. Here’s a picture of Dorothy with her beaming a smile whilst working on this commissioned artwork.

Here is Dorothy’s Rock Hole work that she has put the last stroke to . I think you’ll agree it has some lovely movement and an overall stunning visual impact. The collector is ecstatic!

From Buckle up, Bitches:

 

This is the transcript of a radio conversation of a US naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October, 1995. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations 10-10-95.

Americans: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a Collision.

Canadians: Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

Canadians: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.

Americans: This is the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln, the second largest ship in the United States’ Atlantic fleet. We are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers and numerous support vessels. I demand that YOU change your course 15 degrees north, that’s one five degrees north, or countermeasures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship.

Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

Tradition or Brutal Murder: the Controversial Seal Hunt


Inuit Embrace

The seal hunt is an activity that has sparked quite a lot of controversy over the decades. Done mainly off the northeast coast of the province of Newfoundland, Canada, the killing of this species made the news time and time again, mostly because the ones attacked more often are the babies. Seal pups have a beautiful, pure white colour of fur that is easier to sell than their parents’. And, even though the aboriginals living in that area – the Inuit (formerly known as Eskimos) – use every single part of their bodies, right down to their intestines and bones, European descendants do not. They often don’t even eat the meat, their only interest lying in the sale of the furs.

Let’s back up a bit and study the importance of this animal over the years. As I’ve mentioned, the Inuit have been traditionally hunting it since as far back as 4000 years ago. They always followed the most ecological way of killing the animals, thanking their spirits for the food and clothes they needed and using the intestines as thread and the bones as jewellery. Then, the Europeans arrived.

Woodpeckers: Canadian Vs. Mexican


English: Ladder-Backed Woodpecker (Picoides sc...

From  morganonnet2 on the Experience Project.

A Mexican woodpecker and a Canadian woodpecker were in Mexico arguing about which country had the toughest trees. The Mexican woodpecker claimed Mexico had a tree that no woodpecker could peck.

The Canadian woodpecker accepted his challenge and promptly pecked a hole in the tree with no problem. The Mexican woodpecker was amazed.

The Canadian woodpecker then challenged the Mexican woodpecker to peck a tree in Canada that was absolutely ‘impeccable’ (a term frequently used by woodpeckers ). The Mexican woodpecker expressed confidence that he could do it and accepted the challenge.

The two of them flew to Canada where the Mexican woodpecker successfully pecked the so-called ‘impeccable’ tree almost without breaking a sweat.

Both woodpeckers were now terribly confused. How is it that the Canadian woodpecker was able to peck the Mexican tree, and the Mexican woodpecker was able to peck the Canadian tree, yet neither was able to peck the tree in their own country?

After much woodpecker pondering, they both came to the same conclusion…

Apparently, “Peckers really DO get harder when you’re away from home.”

Wake Up Call for Canada!

I was  looking at my views per country and everyone is accounted for, except… Canada.

WWWAAAAKE UUUUUUPP, CCAAAAANAAADAAAAAH!!!!

I would like to point out something that everybody probably already knows, but that I with my usual obtuseness only just found out. If you hover over a specific country in these stats, the system shows you its location on an enlarged map, which is handy for me who has no clue about geography. Heck, half  of the time I don’t even know whether I’m facing up or down! ;-)
