PerFi 3: Crocodile Smile

(1.) A Stoney Creek couple got a $1,086 propane heating bill. This, apparently, qualifies as news. Instead of questioning their dumb lifestyle choices (“Gee, maybe we shouldn’t live in the middle of nowhere, far away from natural gas infrastructure”), they bravely went public: “We live in Canada. We know it’s freakin’ cold … how can […]

PerFi 3 – WWIII

(1.) A CBC Marketplace investigation revealed the incredibly bad advice offered by commissioned investment salespeople. You’re reading this blog so you’re probably already aware that a commissioned mutual fund salesperson cares less about protecting your financial interests than a used car salesman. But… hidden cameras!! In lieu of generating unique content, here’s my comment from […]

PerFi 3: How to Not Be a Loser

Step one: don’t keep $10,000 on your person. Even without a conviction, one of Canada’s kangaroo courts — at the behest of Clown Counsel – might decide to just keep it. But this totally makes sense; I think I remember from grade ten civics class that, in Canada, you’re guilty until proven innocent. The judge actually […]

Can You Bit Torrent Anonymously?

Can You Bit Torrent Anonymously?

No. But “How Can You Bit Torrent With a Higher Level of Security?” would be an awful title. Copyright trolls are endemic in the US. These “trolls” act on behalf of rights holders, accusing internet users of illegally downloading copyrighted material and demanding large cash settlements (often thousands of dollars) to avert potential lawsuits. The […]

Canada’s New Bills Suck

Today’s post is one of my shortest ever, because I’m writing and publishing it during my morning commute. Talk about mailing it in! Pros There’s a picture of outer space on the $5 bill. The clear window thing is cool. They’re much harder to counterfeit. Oh, wait. Cons The plastic bills feel awful. On a […]

Free Games with Gold

The PlayStation 4 recently passed the 5-million-sold mark. It’s beating the Xbox One, which still hasn’t hit 4 million. Not that you care. Hopefully the reason you don’t care is that you’re busy following more important news. For example, the UN finally stopped whining about the Middle East’s only bastion of freedom, Israel, long enough […]

Renaming My Site “Smart Liberal Party of Ontario”

(1.) Canadian hero Nathan Fielder, host of the Comedy Central educational series Nathan for You, recently started a new business: “Dumb Starbucks”. By adding the word “dumb” we are legally allowed to use the coveted Starbucks name and logo as we’ve fulfilled the minimum requirements to be considered a parody under US law. — Nathan […]
