To quote the judge in the case:

If he had been an aircraft hijacker, he would have gotten 24 years in prison. If he’s been a terrorist, he would have gotten 20 years in prison. If he was a child rapist, he would have gotten 11 years in prison. And now I’m supposed to give him a 55-year sentence? I mean, that’s just not right

But what if the judge had just said "no". What if he had made this quote when he passed sentence, and followed it with, "... so I just won't do it."

I don't completely blame the judge, that is a hard stand to make. You will likely never find work in your field again, but eventually it has to be the individuals involved that make the stand. Who else can do it?

That is especially true outside of Quebec, where the taking up of philosophical considerations is ... not something that happens while tinkering under the hood of a car or waiting in line to buy a baguette. The latter are business as usual in Quebec and represent a major difference between it and the rest of Canada

Almost enough to convince me to move to Quebec.
Radicalization: Why ISIS is successful in Canada. Why are young Canadian men so willing to fight a foreign war? What is it about our system that alienates them?

I have trouble buying this. Youth travels, of course. And historically, smart, disaffected folks have gone off and served in foreign wars (Spanish Civil War being a fave, and earlier the French Revolution). But they normally fight against fascism, or against tyranny.

This is clearly something else.

Strong argument for allowing me to carry a sidearm (a 12 gauge sidearm).

Ever feel you are in a Monty Python sketch?

A fun conversation with my ploughman over the last Month:

ME: I am moving, I will be terminating our contract at the end of February
HIM: It's really hard to plough your drive way, I won't renew with the next family. It takes too long to do.
ME: OK.
HIM: Actually, my truck is in a ditch and I can't plough you for a couple of days.
ME: OK.
HIM: Actually, my truck is broken, and I can't plough you for a week.
ME: <raises eyebrows>
HIM: Actually, my truck needs a part and won't be available until the end of February
ME: Let me guess, the cat ate your plough. (OK, this one I've added, but the rest are true statements)

I have no idea what the context for this political cartoon is, but it seems pretty universal to me.

It is one thing to steal from me. It is another to insult my intelligence while doing it.

Hooray!

I just got a letter in the mail. I have an appointment with an allergist in one month. I didn't think I was going to get to see one at all.


Only had to wait 12 months.

Nice hardening tips for SSH connections.

Remember, the cumulative difficulty is what counts, not the individual message difficulty. (If everything is encrypted, Eve can't know what is important until she has decrypted everything).
 
Make your SSHD a bit more secure :)
You attempted to reach stribika.github.io, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as a shape shifter humanoid reptile alien. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and definitely harmful) version of stribika.github.io. You should not proceed.
