Happy Faux Thursday!

If you believe CNN, the CBC or Südwestrundfunk Deutschland, you will be told that today is Monday, or possibly Tuesday - if you're over the date line. In places like the ME, they don't know what day it is unless it is published in the Quran, and only then, if it is decreed as such by an Imam. The Chinese use a different calendar. Apparently, every day is Sunday in China.

So, that said, Faux Thursday features a man who disappeared into the ocean (it is thought) during the second of the world wars. That would be Glenn Miller, an Iowa boy who loved the trombone.

If you're in university, a few painless facts:

The world existed (just barely) before 1980.
We used to have holes in the ground from which we extracted water. Do you know what this was called?
Humans could not see colour before 1965 (thank you medicare for somewhat painlessly activating the colour rods in our eyes!)
You have no rights, only the perceptions of rights as laid out on Twitter and Facebook.
The Smurfs went off television because I killed them all. I stepped on them with my jump boots. I also offed Gargamel and his cat Azrael too.

Yes, the world just gets crazier by the day. And on your way home tonight, why not stop by the grocery store for a tasty midweek treat.

Today in History

Prince Gumby of Tunisia Assassinated by US Indian Rebels

187 years ago today, Prince Gumby of Tunisia was killed in his bed by American Indians disguised as Indians from India, but working for the CIA. The prince's death would lead to the outbreak of World War One and see sales of cheap, imported Indian rugs throughout the US southwest. A forerunner to NAFTA and a globalized economy.



'Apple Butter' was a Steve Jobs Code Word

In 1954, a business machine company called Commodore Business Machines was founded in Toronto, Ontario. The RCMP claimed the Commodore was a front for the mob in Canada, but could not prove it, or stop them from continuing their operations. Commodore would become an early leader in computing, gambling and prostitution, staying at the forefront of technology until Steve Jobs took it down.

In 1994, Commodore Computers ceased to be. 'Apple Butter' was a code word for the destruction of Commodore Computers! When a young Jobs saw the Vic 20 and Commodore 64 computers ascending in popularity, he ordered the destruction of Toronto based Commodore International. Its take down cleared the way for Apple Computers.

It was the only time in history where the Mob - in this case, Italian mobsters based in Toronto, Canada - would be taken down by a gang of computer geeks. Here, in a movie reenactment, Steve Jobs (played by Jack Nicholson) is interrogated by Bill Gates (played by Tom Cruise) about his role to taking down Commodore. WARNING bad language, k?

Murph
just a note: they eat muskrat in muscoka ( boiled in "things go better with coke!"...hense the name)
fischers got all the stray pets and TV took the competitive spirit out of the population
so they tend to favor slow moving prey easily trapped

even better if it comes in a snackpack of 24

...oh and apple butter is the greasing you get when you pay full price for a mac that blows up your car while you are at the beach messin with someone else's old lady

They eat tourists in Muskoka too.

This scene from Deliverance was actually filmed in the Muskokas, not the southern US as was widely believed.

On continue avec les fausses nouvelles!

This artist's rendering is the first known interracial dancing school in Upper Canada - circa 1795. Until then, there was a colony dancing academy for the British and nothing for the native Indians. This changed in 1795 when the governor's secretary Roch Trudeau proposed that aboriginal Upper Canadians should be allowed to dance in their own language with anyone who cared to watch. Trudeau also said that Indians had great rhythm (be nice, it was 1795!).



Here Roch Trudeau's great great grandson shows of his dancing style 170 years later.



Les fausses nouvelles?

From the early daze of the colonies.

This is believed to be the first pornographic drawing in the New World. Circa 1750. An rather well built Indian talks to a French officer while a lusty French fur trapper looks on, trying to get a glimpse of what is under the Indian's covering. Possibly an early S&M drawing. Note the weaponry and the fact that the Indian is bearded and wearing leather.



Oooh, c'est quoi ça, là-bas?
