IQ Test
Free-IQTest.net – IQ Test

I question the inegrity of online IQ tests.  My theory is based purely on the fact I screwed up twice before I actually had it display on the internet.  Someone with a 151 IQ…

….wouldn’t be taking online tests on the internet.

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!

South Africa: Mystery hemorrhagic fever kills 3

GENEVA (AP) — — The U.N. health agency says it is investigating a mystery disease that killed three people in the South African city of Johannesburg.

The World Health Organization says the disease appears to be a form of hemorrhagic fever.

It says tests have proved negative for Ebola, Lassa fever, Rift Valley fever, Marburg fever and other main types of hemorrhagic fever.

WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl says the first death on Sept. 13 was a tour guide who had fallen ill in Zambia before being evacuated to South Africa. Two further deaths on Sept. 30 and Oct. 4. involved a paramedic and a nurse who treated the woman.

Hartl said Friday that 121 people are being monitored and WHO hopes to receive further test results by Sunday.

Well. 

Stock market strife with looming economic collapse. 

George W. Bush running a country. 

Facebook changing its look. 

Now an unidentified hemorrhagic virus killing people and anyone within the vicinity.  Apocalypse?  I guess we’ll all see whether or not we need to kiss our asses goodbye on Sunday.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING CANADA!

London, Not Ontario

September 17, 2008

I’m not sure how else to do it. 

London.

Tommy Campbell. 

I’ve been performing comedy in clubs for almost 13 years now.  I believe I’ve known Tommy for at least ten of those.  He’s a Calgary boy originally and has relocated to London about five years ago.  He was my guide.

Here’s some pictures from the trip on Flickr.

I dunno.  What can I say?  It was awesome.  I saw Tom Stade, Sean Collins, met some new great people, went to some great places, it was awesome.

It was London.

CSI: Retard

February 27, 2007

Wow.  I can’t believe how people never fail to make me feel good about myself.

Mother coached children to fake retardation
POSTED: 1246 GMT (2046 HKT), February 27, 2007

TACOMA, Washington (AP) — A woman admitted Monday that she coached her two children to fake retardation starting when they were 4 and 8 years old so she could collect Social Security benefits on their behalf…”

– CNN.com International Edition

The RingerReally?  No kidding.

I have two kids.  I have enough trouble keeping them from acting like they are retarded.  This woman coached them to act retarded.    But she got paid for it, she got paid over $222000.  There  is not enough incentive to keep your kids from acting like they are retarded these days.

The Ringer PosterAn underlying issue is the overzealous use of the word retard by CNN.  I counted five on the page.  Not very PC.  

To add to the pile of retarditude, not only did this woman and her kids rip off legitimately retarded retards, but I am sure there is some sort of copyright infringement for totally stealing the premise for “The Ringer”…or the other way around.

I smell sequel.

Five years’ jail for compulsive liar who posed as forensic expert

Karen McVeigh
Friday February 23, 2007
The Guardian

A conman who built his career posing as a forensic expert to dupe victims out of thousands of pounds was jailed for five years yesterday, as police began the task of re-investigating 700 cases in which he was involved.

Gene Morrison, 48, of Hyde, Cheshire, bluffed and lied his way through hundreds of trials, for almost three decades, fooling judges, barristers, solicitors and their clients into believing he was qualified.

He left school with no qualifications but gave evidence in cases involving armed robbery, rape, death by dangerous driving, unexplained death, drugs offences and questioned paternity…”

“We lied to you.”

Contest, Manolis, Working Comedians and Kids

February 21, 2007

Controversy abounds!  The third instalment of the Great Canadian Laugh Off, Calgary Search, was rife with drama.  Fouteen people were injured, three people arrested,  and two are being sought by police for questioning.

All right, no one was arrested or sought by police, and there were no injuries other than people’s pride.  Karen O’Keefe came on top, and she also placed first in the competition last night.  Mike Tod was selected to also carry on to the finals next week, and the fact that he is seventeen years old leaves him exempt from lame, implied, “adult” jokes…and a comedy prodigy of sorts.

Freddy and ManolisManolis Zontanos was the MC – a super guy from Hamilton who I met when I was out in Toronto.  He livened things up with his unique take on his life experiences, and kept the “machine lubricated”…I think he was referring to the show.  Check out his space…and he’s on the internet on MySpace.   You can also try to win a date with him – here.  See what he has in common with a fire extinguisher!

There was some tension when there was some objectionable claims made by a comic having “worked at Yuk Yuks for the past year”.   What he had intended was to imply he had been performing on the Yuks stage over the past year.  What he did not realise was how “…working for Yuk Yuks…” was going to be interpreted.  So, this guy’s five minutes of comedy now represents Yuk Yuks.   I don’t think he thought it through when he provided his introduction to Manolis.   After Nancy’s evaluation, I’m pretty sure he is aware of the difference now.

I suppose it’s one way to meet Yuk Yuk’s Management. 

On a happyfun family note here’s pictures of my kids:

Weekend, Joe Rogan, and HACKS

February 17, 2007

End of the week is finally here.  Valentines Day completed.  Birthday survived.  Long weekend ahead.  Family day to look forward to.

IMG_0095[1]The X92.9 radio spot went well, a couple of people mentioned they heard me.  Josh and James were good guys about having me around for a few minutes. 

The second week of judging was interesting.  I had the misfortune of having to ‘lose it’ on the first act.  My intention was to make it clear to “come prepared.”  You enter a contest where pe0ple are vyying for $25000, so why wouldn’t you, maybe, oh I don’t know, jot down a thought or two rather than “wing it” using lame dick references with the mic stand? 

Regardless, a sincere “congrats” go out to Don Woods for being the number one dude, and Chris Gordon and Trevor Buchanan for walking away with a tie for second.  They will make the next round for the Calgary finals.

In other news, Joe Rogan has outed a HACK recently which has caused quite a stir.  Too bad for the HACK in question where he has documented evidence against him.  It isn’t even worth mentioning his name as I have the belief that our name is what we are in this industry.  His name is HACK, and he epitomises the bottom of the barrel in the comedy industry.  You do not borrow material, you do not steal material, you do not HACK.

I agree with what Joe has written on his site where he states these HACKS get away with what they do, because no one holds them accountable due to fear of repraisal.  I honestly believe, as part of the sad, silent majority of fuming comedians, that we feel there is not a lot we can do as lesser knowns.  I have seen HACKS confronted where the reaction is textbook: classic denial.  I have seen the same thing where either they act like, or they are genuinely unaware of what losers they are.  Not only do they deny it, but they are astonished that anyone would try to discredit them.  Complete bullsh*t. 

Joe, you are truly a comedian’s comedian.  You are a hero.  Make that HACK your bitch.

Your plagarist, loser, no talent, bitch.
