This woman has really burned my mind. For one, I would never get involved in a show where a band member has publicly stated that not all rape is caused by rapists and it's unfair to poor Brock that someone listened to the accusations of the victim who doesn't remember anything from being unconscious at the time. It's one thing to defend your friend and talk about how your experience with has been good. It's another to spend so much time mocking the seriousness of the crime as "political correctness" and shifting the blame to how much the woman drank. Yah, she totally blamed the victim, and now she thinks her success is the reason people are reacting to it.

Everybody should read the victim impact statement

It's like how traffic slows to a crawl for no particular reason other than the fact that it's busy.

Will be available for least at $99 CDN per month and a maximum range of 100 km. From what I know it is as snug as a bug. It's very encouraging to hear that Azra has plans to to install 2000 quick chargers, and most of them will be in mall and business parking lots. Not sure if Azra is planning to work outside of Quebec, no double the Qc government has played a role. I'm curious about what the vehicle classification will be. They're calling it a 2 seater electric car, but in Europe it is classified as a heavy quadricycle ( less than 450kg, payload of 200kg, and max of 15kW). Do we have such a thing here in Canada? 

“Pain is strange. A cat killing a bird, a car accident, a fire.... Pain arrives, BANG, and there it is, it sits on you. It's real. And to anybody watching, you look foolish. Like you've suddenly become an idiot. There's no cure for it unless you know somebody who understands how you feel, and knows how to help.”
Charles Bukowski

It seems obvious now.

This is a very good thing. Let's not let things disappear into the sands of time simply because some person with a piece of paper felt they'd eventually republish it, or they didn't want something old competing with their something new.

I am more than just a little skeptical that fair-sized glass manufacturer wouldn't be aware of what is in their recycled glass.

I get a bit of a dopamine rush from this one. I also got a bit of a dopamine rush from jumping on one those trampolines. Gee... I wonder..

There's an awful lot going on in this podcast. It is almost 2 hours long so I guess there oughtta be. The most interesting second, at least for me, is where they're talking about Clear Channel Radio and the commentators theory that Clear Channel decided they didn't need to make radio for an audience, they could instead own enough of the market and simply sell advertising space. They don't care about how many people actual tune into their programming, it's simply here's the area our transmission reaches, and here's the demographic our programming is designed for. It doesn't seem all that out of whack to me. The person I know in radio says it's generally targeted to women who are 25-35. Which may explain why my open disdain for commercial radio hasn't helped my relationship prospects.

What's more interesting for me is I'm thinking back to the eMusic hey-day where everybody was referring to commercial radio as "spoon feeding" their audience music. Apparently, Clear Channel isn't even doing, they're basically just filling up air space in a way that suits their demographic research. In many ways this does work for a lot of audiences, but I think there's a lot of evidence that shows that has a drastically negative effect on overall music sales, ticket sales, adult interest in popular music, and overall diversity. If you go back in time and look at little golden eras in music, you'll find an MTV, Much Music, Edge 102, John Peel, or Album Oriented Radio (aka the 70s) that were creating diversity. Why wouldn't it make a difference. Music is personal, it only natural to like different music than the person next to you.
