My First Politics Post

I don't really care much about politics. I guess I should, but Canada seems to be doing just fine without my involvement, so I'll just live in blissful ignorance. I couldn't ignore this story though...looks like we're having an early election because the goverment got caught doing something naughty. This picture (which I stole from "Gardner") sums it up nicely...Martin is all sad because his government sucks, and Harper is smirking like a kid who just got a gold star. Good for you, Stephen Harper, with your creepy evil eyes and crazy beliefs. Have fun losing...again.

What I find funny about media reports of this story is the emphasis on the fact that the election will happen in the winter. Does that really matter? Are Canadians so lazy that they don't ever leave their houses when it's cold outside? Don't the majority of us go to work or school every day of our lives? If people want to vote, I don't think it will be a deterrant to walk for 10 seconds in the cold to get to their car and drive five minutes to the polling station. Sheesh.

Anyway, I haven't blogged in a while because I've been playing my brand new Xbox 360. Everything you've heard about it is true: it crashes every 2 minutes (just like Windows), and gets so hot that it will burn through any surface you put it on and destroy your entire house. I've burned down three buildings just so I could play Hexic HD for a few more minutes. Oh, and you can't buy these: only people who took part in a secret ritual several years ago have the opportunity to buy one, and they must be paid for IN BLOOD.

I am lying. I will post something about what I actually think of the new Xbox later. Bye.
