Curious George. What are you reading at the moment? Would you recommend anything? In the last few weeks, I've read Waugh's "Black Mischief", a couple of Harry Potters, Rawicz's "The Long Walk", and had started Capek's "War with the Newts" (one of my all time favourites) before misplacing it. But my library bores me at the moment, and so I must open my reading list to all. Mofites, please don't disappoint me!!

Just say no....to Canadian drugs. The feds couldn't do it. The RCMP couldn't do it. And the BC Marijuana Party is concerned. But the rising loonie just might. I could have put this in the other thread. I just thought it was amusing enough to stand alone. Tracicle, back me up on this.

Oil or Fishing? Have both!! We missed it this year, but howzabout the first ever World Monkey Jamboree is held as part of this? Seriously though, the title speaks for itself. via OK, it's a crap post. They can't all be gems. Just don't throw that skrik at me.

Curious George. My gooseberry bush has exploded this year, and I have a bumper crop of the lovely green sour things. Now what can I do with them all?

qaSvI' ngoch cherwI' is trying to win re-election to the Finnish Parliament, by appealing to the Klingon vote. A few words may require the assistance of native speakers of the language, but fortunately, his site is also in English, Swedish, and (obviously) Finnish. Clearly, he is a man ahead of his time.

It'll do until you get rich. So you can't have a Jeeves. Maybe this can let you pretend otherwise, at least until you wake up.

Who wants to know? Slate's Explainer presents the best (or worst?) of the questions received this year. One of them WILL be answered, but which one should it be? And which one was asked by our very own Captain?* *OK maybe he didn't ask any of them, but if he had, which one would it have been?

In which is revealed a device to encourage the recitation of tongue twisters. This may be old, juvenile, and requiring of translation from our Asian monkeys, but I'm still glad we didn't have these in school.
