Parties Take Position on Verizon

One of Canada’s largest unions, the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union (CEP), believes Verizon’s entrance will mean the loss of Canadian jobs. It has raised concerns that the U.S. company could give U.S. security agencies access to Canadian customers’ private information. The union has even called on the federal government to create a Crown corporation to ensure that there is a large fourth player in Canada’s telecoms market.

Nobody has actually said how adding another company would cost jobs. Common sense would say it would add jobs. And US security agencies already have access to our information.

I’ll admit, when I first realised how stupid these people actually were, I was blown away. I considered the fact that I was (and still am) intellectually superior to them, and that perhaps I should let them know. Like an inexperienced fireman trying to slowly turn on the water, I did. I couldn’t control myself.

I drew this in my physics class. I used a ROUNDEDGE H pencil. 

The little guy lost his arm in a physics experiment, the details of which cannot be disclosed at this time.

Baseball is a sport played by two teams that each have nine players. In baseball, one team throws a small round ball called a baseball and the other team tries to hit it with a club called a bat. Teams get points by running and touching markers on the ground called “bases”.

But what about the RBI’s?

Much like those who reference touchdowns as a measure of performance or talent in football have become mocked and discredited, fans of hockey need to ignore those who do the same with goals.

Oh, shit.

Believing and Knowing

There is no difference to “believing” and “knowing”. If you believe something, you know it. Believing describes the process through which you went to find the knowledge, but includes the activity or knowing as well.

Lazy Editorialists

Is it considered plagiarism if an editorial in a magazine directly copies without reference or noting it is a quote a paragraph from an article in the same publication?
