Comment Re:wouldn't that be yelps problem? (Score 2) 168 168

Reuters reports that nineteen companies caught writing fake reviews on websites such as Yelp, Google Local and CitySearch have been snared in a year-long sting operation by the New York Attorney General and will pay $350,000 in penalties

I don't know how much it cost in man-hours, but 19 * 350 000$ (6 650 000$) is a lot of money. I wouldn't be surprised if they recouped their investment and more...

5 years moratorium on fracking - True, but eventually, it'll change
Too many senators - Absolutely true. I hope it'll change. The whole population wants it to change
The asbestos mines - True, I hope they shut those mines once and for all. we are being laughed at by the whole world because of that.

Quebec doesn't have three times to population of Alberta

Actually, almost three times yes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Canadian_provinces_and_territories_by_population

First and foremost, we have lots of fresh water which one day will be worth more than gold, we have forests and a lot of mining potential (diamond, nickel, titanium, rare earths) and we do have oil though it's not being exploited yet.

Anyway, as I said, if it's true that we have nothing redeemable, then please, by all means, kick us out of Canada !

Well, then pay and shut up about it.

You (rest of Canada) bitch about sharing your oil money, why should we give you access to the east for free ?? You can't have it both ways. You either keep us, share the wealth and shut up or lose access to the east and our natural resources. Thank you very much
We won't move to please you. We were there first anyway...

Weird because when french canadians tried to have their own country, the anglos were in the street claiming their love and begging for them to stay a part of Canada. Remember the 1995 referendum ? Yes the one where the liberals cheated... There is nothing we would love more than have our own country. Help us get there at the next referendum and then we can start to love each other again.

Btw, I'm not the anonymous coward and I do not share his views about beating up people...

I used to use iGoogle, then they took it from me.
I used to use Google Notebook, then they took it from me.
I used to use Google Reader, then they took it from me.

If it wasn't for that, I'd probably be excited to hear about their new product, but I'm not. Not anymore. I will not use Google Keep especially because I do not want to get used to it so they can take it away from me. I'm done.

So you can count me in that group Aguazul2.

Comment Clone the spouse (Score 1) 350 350

Clone the spouse of course ! That way, you can get a threesome without the guilt.

What if the cloning process introduced some kind of noise. It could be interesting to keep on cloning the machine itself to see what kind of mutations it would come up with ! Maybe one would come up with the ability to clone 2 times !

Thanks, now I'll be thinking about that all day !

The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
