///Pizza Hut Big Box Deal///
Pizza Hut recently introduced the Pizza Hut Big Box to its Canadian restaurants. For $30, plus tax, you get a huge variety of food:
- Two medium pizzas with two toppings on each
- Ten boneless chicken wings
- A $10 gift voucher (This doesn’t really merit consideration because it can only be used between January 7th and January 20th and for purchases of more than $25. But I suppose it’s something.)
This deal offers a great variety of delicious food in large quantities (in my opinion, Pizza Hut offers the best chain restaurant pizza). My partner and I got this deal last Friday night and it fed us for a good part of the weekend.
But I don’t settle for merely OK deals. There’s another special on the PizzaHut.ca website: you get 20% off your first online order. After this discount, we only paid $27.11 in total rather than $33.89. Obviously, at either price, it would be extremely expensive to survive on Pizza Hut. But for a small buffet of food, 27 bucks ain’t bad.

- Control Your Cash included my story about using Flight Centre’s guarantee in their weekly Carnival of Wealth. It’s the only blog carnival I’ve submitted to and the only one I read each week. I also picked up two copies of their book in time for Christmas. It’s the perfect present to give to a young person with a card that says, “This is the wisdom I wish I had when I was your age.”
- Value Indexer, in his post, “I’m a Great Stock Picker With 76,117,945,311,128% Returns!” references a prediction he made in a comment on one of Adina’s posts. Turns out we all could have made thousands of dollars.
- Nelson of FU declared TF’s “Best Financial Tip” was the best “Campaign for Financial Literacy” entry in his Sunday Morning Dump. The actual contest was decided by random draw. I actually strongly agree with this method — judging would be too rife for debate and voting would be too easy to abuse.
- FinanceFox, the winner of the aforementioned Campaign for Financial Literacy random draw, mentioned Sara’s excellent post on lowering her interest rates.

OK, why would you artificially limit your search to the most expensive possible retailer?

why i won’t give to trent university
Sure, I was oppressed by leftists like any intelligent person who attends Trent, but 9/10 profs were excellent, I attended on full scholarship, and my critical thinking skills flourished. If I were super rich I’d give money to Trent.

A documentary that shows how the Hamas dictatorship terrorizes/brutalizes people, particularly women (e.g. jail sentences for adultery. Seriously).
1. Regular TF Reader Adam P. brought this article to my attention: “8 Ways Money Can Buy Happiness”. As he noted, it’s just a summary from a year-old study, but it has some interesting advice nonetheless. Typically I promote delayed gratification as a saintly personal finance trait but, apparently, it can also make you happier.
2. “The Top 5 Corporate Twitter Disasters of 2012” is another interesting list (man, I usually hate “list” articles so much). It was written by the CEO of HootSuite so, while I abhor the label “social media expert” as laughably pretentious, the guy clearly knows his Twitter. Disaster #2 goes to a famous Canadian brand (congrats, Loblaw!).
3. I’m not a big fan of China’s lack of democracy, its regressive foreign policy, nor its mass currency manipulation which has starved North American manufacturing. India is staging a witty diplomatic protest against China’s repression of subversive information and the communist country’s aggressive land-grabbing. How? Visa stamps.
Every free citizen should be concerned about our increasingly militarized police. And if you think Canada is better off than the States, you’re wrong. While American police and politicians want to disarm their population, the powers-that-be have already accomplished this in Canada. We don’t presently live in a police state. But based on many Canadian examples, some of which I’ve highlighted on this blog, it seems that we’re headed that way.
///lol-worthy – the “I’ll miss Rob Ford” edition///
I don’t want you to get the wrong impression from these images. They’re funny, but Rob Ford’s removal from office is disgusting. It is an example of an un-elected political appointee wielding an unjustifiable amount of power and discretion to remove from office an elected official and to spit on the will of the people. Also, I found it ironic and cruel the way in which leftists openly bullied Ford about his weight and general goofiness. A small, extremist political minority (with too much time on its hands because its members are all unemployed users of Apple products) has yet again gamed Ontario’s socialist legislation to chip away at freedom – in this case, they’ve successfully overthrown the result of a democratic election to reflect their own will. While the following images have been propagated largely by left wing pinkos, they are hillarious.
