1. Oklahoma Satanist Statue [BreatheCast]
Lot’s of upset Christians on Fbook are fuming about this American groups call to equality of religious beliefs. My opinion; let them! Why not? A few years ago Christians were allowed to erect a 10 Commandments statue in the same place…therefore…this group should be able to donate a statue (that holds up to public codes) as well. If not, then take the Christian statue down - OR - stop claiming to have equal rights…
2. “the Internet Makes Us All Miserable” [BlazingCenter]
While I don’t agree with everything said, it’s pretty spot on. Whatever your beliefs, it is true that there is more to life than what your friends post online. I’d rather look at this article from the perspective of someone that shares items of life to inspire, motivate, and thank others. If you don’t understand why people do/say what they do, why do you follow them online?
"Don’t let the internet determine how you see yourself…"
3. WestJet IG Scam [twitter]
Currently, nearly everyone I follow is falling for that new “regram this and win free ______” scam. Today’s is Westjet…apparently no one bothers to check sources to see if the company even RUNS that account :P
4. Martian Weather [DidYouKnow?]
This meme has been floating around, freaking about Manitoba’s current weather “crisis”. I’m from this area, and apparently it’s been colder here than on the planet Mars!
PS: LOL to the Americans complaining about -20
Today is one of those days where my newsfeeds are bursting at the seems…
1. REMEMBERING STEVE [Apple.com]
It’s been one year since the innovators death, and the company has revamped their website with a commemorative video.
2. HAPPY 50th MR BOND [NationalPost]
Today marks the 50th Anniversary of one of the most iconic franchises in cinema history. I’m sure my dad is pretty stoked!
3. LIVE-ACTION HALO SHOW [IMDB]
Machinima’s official Halo4 series premieres today! If you’re not a geek of the series, at least check out the list of actors…it’s legit.
4. FIRST SNOWFALL OF THE YEAR [WeatherOffice.org]
To all my non-Canadian followers; today marks the first snowfall of 2012 in my area. Yay?
Some of these stories are just too huge to not go into further detail. I’ll be posting more as the day goes on.
1. MAY 21 = RAPTURE
Have you guys been following this group called Family Radio? They claim that they’ve found evidence to support the theory that armageddon will happen THIS MONTH (on the 21st to be exact). Now, you should know me by now, and know that I don’t buy into this. I hold these guys on the same level as the Westboro group; a bunch of loud people claiming to be Christians. I for one believe we should live like the world will end tomorrow, but I will be praying and loving extra hard just in case people get crazy on the 21st.
2. HAPPY BDAY MB
Today Manitoba celebrated its 141st birthday!!! What better way to bring in a mid-May day then with cloud, near-freezing prairie weather :P
3. GOOGLE I/O 2011
Google held their annual event to unveil everything in their little bag of tricks. Things like the new Chromebooks, rumors of the Chrome OS, and the Music Beta took the spotlight this year.
4. ABE LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER
That’s right, from the writer of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” comes a novel-to-movie story of President Abraham Lincoln and his battles against the undead!!!
5. ASHTON KUTCHER REPLACES SHEEN
Kutcher just signed to “Two and a Half Men”, his first sitcom since “That 70’s Show”
Hopefully this will be the final nail in the coffin for all this Charlie Sheen nonsense.
