What happened to the legacy of Canada as a peace keeper? We should be sending troops to Gaza to help keep the Israelis and Palestinians from killing each other and work towards peace, not feeding the developing war machine in the Ukraine!
Harper is going to change 200 years of Canada's image as a neutral, peace-loving country in the eyes of the rest of the world.

Today the European Union announced 1.1 Trillion (yes, with a "TR") in currency printing and bond buying, following the example of Japan, and before that, the USA. The current western method to keep the economy of the world from tanking is to keep someone printing money somewhere.
Meanwhile, Russia, China, and the other BRICS nations are working toward establishing their own money system based on gold. Gold-backed currencies are the only ones that have worked without eventual destruction all through history.
Germany knows this. Germany is on the hook for Greece's debt, which they have essentially defaulted on. Greece wants the EU to bail them out again. Germany has the only stable economy inside of the EU. I expect Germany to announce very soon that they are exiting the European Union and joining with the BRICS.

Jim Stanford (economist for the Canadian labour union Unifor) is either not very good at his job or is deliberately minimizing this.

17,600 people is .05 of the population of Canada. If you say that isn't going to have an effect on Canada's unemployment numbers, you may have to "larn teh maths" better.
He also states that the employees will be "absorbed" by companies such as Walmart. Walmart loves to run lean (been in a 10 person line up at Wally World lately while scratching your head that there are 20 serviceable tills with no lights on?), so why would he think those stores would be suddenly willing to hire more staff because of Target closures? Oh sure, maybe one or two, but certainly not a big percentage. And "businesses close all of the time" used to be just fine in the old paradigm, because new businesses were always starting up. These days that no... more »

These days that no longer applies. There are more bankruptcies than startups in the USA (I don't have the data for Canada - it is really hard to find economic data for our country on teh Interwebz) and that means as a net - places are closing and there are no jobs to turn to.___

As a citizen of Canada, which is right next door to America, let me tell you how that feels right now.

It is like being an under-sized man living next door to a big, burly redneck. Like a share-the-driveway kind of next-door neighbour. He’s ex-military, and almost for sure suffering from PTSD. His kids are grown up and have left home. His wife left him around the same time. He’s in debt up to his eyeballs and has taken to heavy drinking. He likes to stand in the front yard firing his gun in the air and shouting at the neighbours. At night, I think he secretly goes to other areas of the city where people of different ethnicities live and I believe he kills them. I’ve seen him coming home early the morning soaked in blood. Someone (not me) called the police on him once, but when they showed up, they had beers on the guy’s patio with him, laughing about some shared joke. He seems to be ingood wi... more »

As a citizen of Canada, which is right next door to America, let me tell you how that feels right now.

It is like being an under-sized man living next door to a big, burly redneck. Like a share-the-driveway kind of next-door neighbour. He’s ex-military, and almost for sure suffering from PTSD. His kids are grown up and have left home. His wife left him around the same time. He’s in debt up to his eyeballs and has taken to heavy drinking.

At night, I think he secretly goes to other areas of the city where people of different ethnicities live and I believe he kills them. I’ve seen him coming home early the morning soaked in blood. Someone (not me) called the police on him once, but when they showed up, they had beers on the guy’s patio with him, laughing about some shared joke. He seems to be in good with those who should be trying to do something about him. Even the bill collectors are hesitant to come knocking, or even to deny him more credit as his debt skyrockets. 
His yard and house are falling apart. He doesn’t have the money to fix any of it. I do what I can to help him, at the same time as trying to stay somewhat separate. I can’t have him rely on me, as I have my own place to take care of, and my own debts. But I can’t ignore him, either. If his property values plummet too much, mine will too. They’re too close together. 
And if he ever decides that I’m among those people that he hates, there’s not much I can do to stop him from coming over here and kicking my ass.___

People ought to recognize that who they are is malleable. 
If you don't allow yourself to change as you learn new things every day, you will stagnate. We are currently pushed to think in absolutes - to put things into little summary boxes for easy reference - and yet the world changes constantly. The natural state of personality is flux. This is a survival mechanism to allow us to adapt to different natural phenomena happening around us. Do not deny this natural tendency by applying labels to yourself as current society dictates that you ought to. You are beign flooded with images about who you should be and who you ought to try and emulate. Find yourself. Be yourself. Then allow that person to change like the wind.

Pretty funny article.
Oh noes! Russia is $134 Billion in debt! Of course that means Russia is heading for disaster!
Ummm... $134 Billion is only 7.4% of the debt of the United States. 
The article also mentions that Russia has $400 Billion in currency reserves. This is roughly 300% of their debt. So, very far from bankruptcy, and they could pay off their debt from their reserves if they needed to.
In comparison, the U.S. has currency reserves of $135 Billion, which means they could only repay less than 10% of their debt if forced to do so.
Think about that.

I mentioned this on that "other" Social Network, but thought I'd try it here aw well.
Regarding 5th edition D&D:
I just noticed that the Raise Dead and Resurrection spells do not result in a loss of level, just a -4 on saving throws, attacks, and ability checks for the duration of 4 long rests.
My initial gut feel is to House Rule a loss of level. Death should be a scary thing that the players are concerned about, not just another slightly inconvenient result of combat.
What have other 5e DMs here on the Plus done about it? If you didn't House Rule anything and kept to RAW, what did you tell yourself to make it all right in your mind?

The Scare That is Ebola
The first victim of the current Ebola outbreak died on December the 6, 2013 in West Africa. Since that time, it has killed around 4,000 people, about half of the people that became infected. These numbers are still below the number of people who die each year from the flu. So why are we so afraid? The virus has been free to infect people in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone for almost a year now, and it hasn't turned into a pandemic. Having never been to any of these places, I hesitate to say that they are less hygienic than the United States or Canada, but they almost for sure are no MORE hygienic than we here in the west. Therefore, even if the virus replicates JUST AS FAST as it did in West Africa, less than 10,000 people would be infected by Christmas 2015, and only half that number will have died by then. Less than most years when the flu sweeps through. Hardly a... more »

The Scare That is Ebola

Therefore, even if the virus replicates JUST AS FAST as it did in West Africa, less than 10,000 people would be infected by Christmas 2015, and only half that number will have died by then. Less than most years when the flu sweeps through. Hardly a plague. So why are we so scared?
Why are we so completely freaked out by this virus? I think we need to look no further than the Media. And not just the Mainstream Media that I so love to criticize. It is happening as well on the Alternative Media right now. The spin is slightly different on Ebola on the channels where I get what I call the REAL news, but "The Ebola Outbreak" story is mentioned on every show or pod-cast, whether the main subject is "Who Shot Down MH17?" or "The Manipulation of the Gold Price".
We humans are programmed to fear. We don't have claws or big teeth, and we aren't very large and intimidating. So way back when in our early genetic history, we became hard-wired to be afraid. This actually kept us safe from predators. When faced with fear, we will flee, fight, or freeze in pace. Fear is a very strong emotion, and the men behind the curtain have been using it (and other strong emotions) for a long time to keep us doing the things they want us to do.
In case you doubt that last hypothesis, let me clear that up first. You don't think that advertising and TV have altered your thinking? Answer these few questions:
Why do you buy/want a diamond ring for an engagement present?
Why are you grossed out when you can smell someone's underarms?
Why is a "traditional" wedding insanely expensive and lavish? Who's "tradition" is that?
Why is it repulsive and barbaric to see someone's head get cut off, but bullets used to kill or maim are so OK that you even let your kids watch movies depicting it?
Why are we so obsessed with finding gifts for each other at Christmas? Buying things our loved ones don't need that will only get stashed away - we know it - they know it - and yet it is a ritual that you cannot make yourself abandon.
Those are just a few that I've been thinking about lately. There are others. But just think about these few. Where did such thinking come from? Do you think your Great Grandparents had these values 150 years ago in the early days of the building of the United States and Canada? Do you think anyone had such foolish notions during the Great Depression and the Dirty 30s? Did it pop out unbidden from our unconscious desires? 
No. It was all sold to us by salesmen using emotional triggers. And these aren't the only things they're selling.
And they are using Ebola to get you to be afraid. In the Flight, Fight, or Freeze model, how can our fear manifest to save us? We can't FIGHT Ebola (despite sending 5,000 troops to Sierra Leone) and we can't FLEE from it (it crossed the ocean, for crying out loud!). All that is left is to FREEZE in place - to hide and hope it doesn't find us. This is the reaction that I believe is expected from us. They want us to hide. They want us to stay home and keep away from each other. They want us to be so afraid that we BEG the governments of our countries to do something about it. ISIS is another thing we're being sold on being scared about. They can get us anywhere we are! But I'll talk about ISIS another time.
Ebola is on every news cast. They televise quick blurbs during commercials. They even have episodes of your favourite show with Ebola bits sprinkled in. CSI had a whole episode on it, albeit with a different name and a different incubation period, but the show had plenty of pictures of that iconic microscope shot of the worm-like Ebola virus surrounded by red liquid that looks like blood. They even had that poster in a lab in the show Castle. I don't watch too much TV, but I can only assume that if I saw that much, it is being shown all over the place. They have to keep your fear ramped up.
Ebola is a distraction. Troops are being sent to illegal wars that we'd get upset about if we knew the truth. But we're a bit too busy worrying about the spread of this horrible virus to pay much attention to the cycling up of WW!!! in the Middle East to pay attention. And that economic collapse that nobody was talking about until recently? Oh, we forgot about it again, because DAMN! We might get sick here! Don't be distracted.
Ebola is a control mechanism. They want you to stay home. They don't want people gathering in groups if they fail at preventing the next economic bubble from bursting and the U.S. sees unparalleled austerity. And they are screening at airports now. The TSA wasn't humiliating enough - now they are going to take your temperature and maybe your blood. And you'll let them, just because you don't want to help spread a virus? You've already given up so many of your precious "Freedoms" America. Are you really willing to give up more? What happens when the vaccine comes out soon - and come out it will. Will you readily line up for it, even if there are no cases in your town? What if (and I'm just speculating here) the entire Ebola crisis was manufactured with the end game being that everyone takes the vaccine? Maybe Ebola doesn't spread at all on its own, and it has been deliberately given to select people. That may be a bit over the top for the blue pill takers in the group. 
In conclusion, I don't think we ought to be scared. They want us to be scared, and I don't like to give them what they want. Maybe I'll be concerned when it is announced that it is in my city. Or maybe I won't be. I certainly am going to be concerned if a vaccine comes out in the next two weeks, and even more concerned if they somehow manage to manufacture 350 million doses of it by the end of October. That should be enough to make ANYONE feel suspicious. And if you're suspicious, then maybe you don't want to go line up for that shot.

Paul Craig Roberts outlines the reality in “Israel Stealing, Murdering Its Way Through Palestine – Establishment politicians, media refuse to stand up for the real victims.” Here’s an excerpt:

“Israel is always the aggressor but always takes the role of the victim. Palestinian women and children are all subhumans—“snakes,” as one Israeli politician put it—who sneak into Israel through secret tunnels (whose existence is akin to Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction) wearing suicide bomb belts and blow up innocent Israelis along with themselves while Israelis sit in cafes peacefully discussing philosophical issues and the latest news. To stop this slaughter of innocent Israelis, Israel has to blow up Palestinian hospitals, schools and civilian homes and apartment blocks.

Paul Craig Roberts outlines the reality in “Israel Stealing, Murdering Its Way Through Palestine – Establishment politicians, media refuse to stand up for the real victims.” Here’s an excerpt:

To stop this slaughter of innocent Israelis, Israel has to blow up Palestinian hospitals, schools and civilian homes and apartment blocks.

“These unmistakable war crimes, these crimes against humanity are all ignored by the great moral arbiters of the world—the governments of the West who are shaking their fingers not at Israel but their fists at Russia.

“Western governments ignore Israel’s war crimes but not all Western peoples comply with this neglect. Many thousands of demonstrators against Israel have been in the streets in South America, London, Paris, Germany, Dublin and Israel’s own Tel Aviv. But don’t look for much reporting of these demonstrations in the American presstitute media.

“The American presstitute media is focused on those who died in the downing of the Malaysian airliner in eastern Ukraine, in order to blame those 290 deaths on Russia. As far as the American presstitute media is concerned, the murder of 1,200 Palestinians* is not happening or if it is, the Palestinians deserve it for responding to Israel’s oppression by firing in frustration primitive rockets that seldom, if ever, hit their targets.”

*Update: “During the nearly month-long military offensive on Gaza prior to the short ceasefire, Israel killed 448 children and injured 2,502, according to United Nations estimates. As of 8 August, the death toll in Gaza had reached 1,922.”

Paranoia is in bloom, 
The PR transmissions will resume, 
They'll try to push drugs that keep us all dumbed down, 
And hope that we will never see the truth around
Another promise, another scene, 
Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed, 
And all the green belts wrapped around our minds, 
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined

They will not force us, 
They will stop degrading us, 
They will not control us, 
We will be victorious

Interchanging mind control, 
Come let the revolution take it's toll, 
If you could flick a switch and open your third eye, 
You'd see that we should never be afraid to die

So rise up and take the power back, 
It's time the fat cats had a heart attack, 
You know that their time's coming to an end, 
We have to unify andwatch our flag... more »

The Canadian Loonie and the U.S Greenback were roughly equal not long ago.
Also Canadian Gold and US Gold prices were roughly equal.
Let's assume for a moment that the markets are being manipulated, I know, that's a big stretch for some people, but entertain the idea for a moment.
If I was a banker (or part of a group of bankers) able to manipulate the markets, maybe I'd use some of my U.S. Greenbacks to buy a whackload of Canadian Gold. Then I'd force a 10% drop in Loonie value and hold it there for a bit. Oh, look at that - Canadian Gold is now much higher than U.S. Gold. Now I'll sell that Canadian Gold for Canadian Loonies. Next I'll force the Loonie back up to par with Greenback. Hell, maybe even just a bit higher.
Now I sell my Canadian money for American money. What fun! No work, just $$$$.

Am I missing something, or would that not work quite... more »

An article on Tech Republic today caused me to look up a photo of my first computer, an Amiga 500. I sometimes really miss this old girl and even have infrequent dreams where I am firing it up and playing the most awesome game ever created (no real game ever manifests in the dream - it is a memory of a feeling, not an actual game).

My office is next to the company lunchroom. Sometimes epic scents waft their way in here and make me salivate like a waterfall.
And then there's today. What the hell are they making in there? Damp shoe in rotten tomato sauce?

I was perhaps a bit flippant about the "cold" temperatures in the U.S. yesterday. I apologize for that. If you aren't used to it and [don't] have proper attire and adequate heat for your homes, then it has to be a serious issue. Yes, it is colder up here, but it is always cold up here in the winter, so we're prepared and we're used to it.
Here's some tips for dealing with the cold:
1) Wear layers of clothes. Many layers are better than a single thick one.
2) Keep your feet dry. Wear boots or something waterproof.
3) For high windchill, cover all exposed skin with something. Scarf, hood, even a handkerchief.
4) Drink coffee, tea, and/or hot chocolate. They increase you core temperature. 
5) Stay home and game!

Please, tell me how cold it is where you are. I need to dream of some warmer places to visit.
Besides, it's so cute.

I've been quietly lurking for so long that I didn't think anyone would still have me in circles. Nice to see that people are still around!

You ever wish really hard that your cat would come and sit on your lap and purr, but when they finally do, after months of trying to get them on there, the pleasure lasts about 3 minutes and then you realize you can't type and your leg is going to sleep and now you just want them off?
Just wondering.

Good for him for trying to explain the situation to people who just wanted some drama. Big fail on the part of the videographer for not listening and for complaining that he was cold. Go mind your own (warm) business then. Extra kudos to Mr. Cop for not just tazering everybody to shut them all up.

Apparently we have started having Black Friday up here in Canada as well. Last year 40 people had to say, "Sorry, eh?" because they bumped into some other people. One person got their toes stepped on, so those two had to go out for beers.

My team, my city, my fellow fans!
This is how we do it in Regina. Party hard with no "trashing" (aside from making jokes about it).
See how it's done, Vancouver?
