MID-WEEK MAYHEM! #55

Dear Readers:

Back when I was going to high school the worst thing that could happen to you was getting caught sneaking off school property to have a smoke, and getting caught going the wrong way on the 'one way' corridors!

Now it seems ya can get stabbed!

Dunbarton, my old high school in Pickering, Ontario,  was on lock-down yesterday after a girl went nuts and ran around the hallways stabbing and slashing people left right and center. (I hope she went the right way if they still have that 'one way' rule in effect!)

A total of nine people we injured, thankfully none of them seriously, before staff and a few students took her down.

I guess the only bright spot to this whole thing is that at least it didn't happen down in the States ............., because then we would have had nine bodies with bullet holes in them.

-----------------------------------------

 We talked about this a few days ago, but now the mainstream media is jumping on the bandwagon as well ......! It seems that the more Donald Trump wins the more people start looking into buying real estate up here in Canada.

The highest interest so far seems to be on the east and west coast!

(Not only that,  but the Perspective Research Department just provided me with a list of celebrities that are endorsing "The Donald." See if you can tell me what the common denominator is among these people: Gary Busey, Hulk Hogan, Charlie Sheen, Jesse James (Sandra Bullock's EX), Dennis Rodman, Sarah Palin, Wayne Newton, Mike Ditka, Ann Coulter, Jesse Ventura, Lou Ferrigno, Mike Tyson, "America's Sheriff" Joe Arpaio, The Guys from Duck Dynasty, Ted Nugent, and Tila Tequila! Now I'm not going to get into any mud-slinging folks, and I'm not going to tell you what i really think about this group ..................., all I will do is let you make up your own mind, given the quality of these endorsements!)

I complain a lot about the condition of the American justice system (and not without reason) but they look like a bunch of amateurs compared to some of the screw-ups in the Middle-East!
The 3-year-old boy, Ahmed Mansour Qorani Sharara, was convicted last week along with 107 others for allegedly killing three people and sabotaging public and private property, CNN reported.
The incidents took place during the time of the overthrow of Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi during the Arab Spring in 2013, and perpetrated by outlawed Islamist group the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Egyptian military said in a Facebook post it was a case of mistaken identity following uproar after Ahmed's conviction, stating the authorities had actually meant to try a 16-year-old teen with the same name.
That too may also be incorrect though, according to The New York Times.
A police spokesperson, Abu Bakr Abdel-Karim, said in a television interview that the wanted culprit was actually the toddler's 51-year-old uncle, whose name is "similar" to Ahmed's.
The boy's father, Mansour Qorani Sharara, made a distraught plea on national television to the military to "not take him away ".
"I swear I don't want to upset anyone, " Mansour Sharara told the TV station Elebrashy while sobbing. "They told me they will take my child. No one will take my child. "
Police had allegedly taken Ahmed's father into custody when first attempting to arrest the boy, after realising Ahmed was still a toddler.
The contradictions between the police and military statements have made many observers and criminal justice experts question the state of the country's justice system.
The army is yet to apologise to the family for the distress.

A new Ontario poll confirmed what all of us knew ......, only 9% of people in the province like  Kathleen Wynne, while 91% of people HATE her!

That's all well and good kids, and I sort of agree with the numbers, but only one thing keeps me awake at night ................., with an approval rating like that, how the hell did she ever win a majority in the last election!!!!!

News from 'LiveScience' today that people with psychiatric disorders are most likely to marry and have children with other people who also have psychiatric disorders, according to a new study from Sweden. (Well OK, that would explain a lot of my friends, and even some of my relatives!!!!!)

With all the shit going on in the world lately it surprises me that a big topic of conversation is the possibility of Canadians no longer being eligible to appear on "Jeopardy!" (Well I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!)

And like one of the show's toughest questions, no one really has an answer.

Some suggest our digital privacy and anti-spam laws might be the cause, while others suggest that maybe we're just smarter than Americans who don't want to be upstaged by "moose-munching iceholes."
"I think it would be a shame if they can't work out a way for Canadians to keep participating," said Ottawan Frédérique Delaprée, who said she was "super thrilled" to be a contestant on the show in 2014. "I have such great memories of the show."
The show's publicists declined an interview with CBC News but instead sent a statement:
Frédérique Delaprée"As international laws governing how information is shared over the internet are ever-changing and complex, we are currently investigating how we can accept registrations from potential Canadian contestants. The Jeopardy Adult, Teen and College tests have already taken place this year, and we are making every effort to find a solution before the next round of testing is available."
The statement does little to shed light on what the actual reason is, other than a vague reference to Canada's digital privacy laws.

AND FINALLY:

Is that a... gorilla? Chasing an astronaut? On the International Space Station? With the Benny Hill theme tune playing in the background? Quick, someone call NASA!

Don’t worry. This is actually just a “little humor to lighten up a year in space,” according to astronaut Scott Kelly. Seemingly humor aboard the ISS involves dressing up in a gorilla suit and chasing other astronauts Hell, that’s probably fairly funny on Earth, too.

It does raise one small question:

Wait, Why Is There a Gorilla Aboard the ISS?

WHY IS THERE A GORILLA SUIT ON THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION?
