Officer YouTube, Well Done!

Some people might say the Internet Sucks — in part because of the rampant crime related to stalking and the like. Well, to that, I point out a humble article from the Guardian. The British tendency to video tape everything now extends to the common man and his video phone, and has resulted in catching some young whippersnapper hooligan, in a particularly low blow who must be lower than a snakes belly in a submarine shit house , snatching the glasses off a charity worker, probably thinking he was having a good laugh taking a piss.

Luckily, the story has a decent out come ends lovely jubbly. The police figured out what was wrong had gone trotters up, and they were able to use the video in finding and apprehending the young hooligan. He must have been a little shocked hit for six at how YouTube was used. How’s that for “internet teh sucks!”

Maybe Canada should plant the world’€™s longest line of trees right along the inside of the border to hide the nasty looking fence.

Canada has just such a guide to put your idea into action Adam, aplty named Hedges for Canadian Gardeners. Written in 1980, College kids will love tree-planting along the border rather than planting in the mountains of BC during the summer. Send your sons and daughters away to Hedge-fund Camp where they will learn why:

It is important to note that hedging is actually the practice of attempting to reduce risk, but the goal of most hedge funds is to maximize return on investment.

At Hedge-Fund Camp we firmly believe in exposing your child to the latest Departmental Electronic Publication on Hedges that the Canadian Government has to offer. Here are some relevant excerpts from the publication:
