How Much is Your Right to Vote Worth? 857

Attila Dimedici writes "Two thirds of the students at NYU would give up their right to vote in the next election for a full scholarship. Some would be satisfied with an ipod. A few would be willing to give up the right for the rest of their lives for one million dollars."
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Disney Leads Invasion of Canada (www.cbc.ca)

TiiTiisMe writes: A video promoting the advantages of moving to the US has been donated to the government by Disney (So trustworthy, so liberal, so neutral http://sqrville.org/article.php/250). The video lays claim to Canada's portion of the Niagara Falls (The big part that everyone takes pictures of) as a natural American wonder. It's shot from the Canadian side, too (http://www.infoniagara.com/attractions/indexf.html). Though the State Department has refused to recall the film; destined for airports, embassies and citizenship drives worldwide; some Canadians aren't too pleased. The media for instance: the CBC's title for the article is "US annexes Canadian landmark in new video promoted by the State Department" (http://www.cbc.ca/cp/Oddities/071028/K102806AU.html). Love it. This is right up there with Canadian Celine Dion signing at the Atlanta Olympics.
