This makes me want to visit Toronto preferably with kids

I hate to say this but I somehow like the older layout for that castle. It looked more castle-like rather than the more boxy fort like structure they replaced it with. Maybe its the windows or the lack of a staging area.

Oh well, they'll get another chance at it next year when the teenagers come back to burn it down again.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I think the point here is:
(a) Some assholes would actually burn down a park, for whatever goddamned reason.  I honestly think destroying public property, especially a "free play place" set up for anyone, is disgusting.
(b) Beggars can't be choosers.  I think it's wonderful people would come together to rebuild it.  I've been at the old one myself, I loved the hell out of it when I was younger (Toronto is one town over for me).  The important thing is if the new one has a lot of passages. :D

About two towns west of Toronto was this "secret park".  It was THREE (kid-sized) stories tall, tall slide at the top, two wooden houses (girls loved it) and it had a FREAKING ZIPLINE.  It's gone now, but I'd be damned if it wasn't one of the coolest parks on the planet.

I really shouldn't have laughed as hard as I did at this because it's probably true.

We don't always see eye to eye (even though you're generally awesome), but I damn sure agree with you about this.  One thing that drove me nuts about the public library in San Antonio--or rather, about their 'customers'--is that I would try to check out DVDs from there and Every. Single. Fucking. One. was scratched to hell and completely unplayable.  Even releases that had only been out for a month or so.  After this happened with eight DVDs in a row, including an obscure one of interviews with mythologist Joseph Campbell, I just gave up and didn't bother renting DVDs from there for years. 

Oddly enough, I never had this problem with DVDs from the movie store around the corner from the library.  Ever.  I suspect that it's because they keep your credit card on file and charge you for it if you tear up a DVD, which makes people inclined to behave a bit more responsibly.  Mind you, scratching up a DVD is not as bad (obviously!) as burning down a children's park but seeing that kind of abuse of communal property still pissed me off, and not just because it inconvenienced me.

About two towns west of Toronto was this "secret park".  It was THREE (kid-sized) stories tall, tall slide at the top, two wooden houses (girls loved it) and it had a FREAKING ZIPLINE.  It's gone now, but I'd be damned if it wasn't one of the coolest parks on the planet.

That sounds fucking EPIC.

There was a very beautiful park on the island of Kauai (in Hawaii) that was hand-built by the community and a couple of local artists even contributed by doing some painting on it, ocean scenes, that kind of thing.  Wonderful work.  Unfortunately, it was hit by a bolt of lightning and burned down.  I suppose that's somewhat better than the park being by hit a group of assholes that should be hit by lightning themselves, though.


I just started watching Doctor Who a couple of weeks ago for the first time and I've been making my way through the series.  I'm now on the Christmas episode of season three.  It's been awesome.

 I was surprised that punk kids turned out to be the villains rather than the government tearing it down for being too fun. But maybe canada's not as bad with that kind of thing.

This post reminds me of a discussion I saw about an incident in Australia; a construction worker fell off of some scaffolding and died and the government immediately set up an investigation into the cause of death, so on and so forth.  Being used to the Aussie government's nanny tendencies several people commenting on the article declared that scaffolding was going to be banned.  Someone insisted that they were just doing a study for that individual case and weren't going to ban anything.  Another individual countered that, insisting that the conclusion of the study was going to be that you have to have a triple digit IQ to safely use scaffolding and that it is therefore safer to ban it than to try to screen all potential construction workers with an IQ test. :D

 I take it that the IQ guy was just trying to talk his way out of working construction since if he got his way he wouldn't be qualified to work there anymore.


But yeah, leave it to teenagers to wreck shit. Its one of the reasons why we send them off to wars. Have them wreck some other guy's shit instead. :byogawd:

Another photo of the people from popular memes.  At least it also contains a meme, so it's cool and kinda funny. :D

I hadn't seen the Che changed my life pic before.  That one's great.  And the pun stuff was awesome.

Was it because the man and woman in American Gothic are father and daughter?

It's weird saying how I prefer Kingdom Hearts though...

Anyways, enjoy!


Kavinsano has become an overnight legend on Deviart Art.  I feel bad that this was supposed to be a private letter.... but his fault for sharing it on the internet.

I can't believe no one cared about the Ninja Turtles electing a new pope. :(

On the other hand, that letter is awesome.
