Today’s Tips: February 20th, 2007

Today’s news bits are full of helpful hints to help you live a safer, healthier, more cultured and politically successful life. Ok, so maybe they don’t all coincide, but that shouldn’t stop you from taking some good advice home with you today. Let’s do this in list form:

1. Wait a week or two before eating any Dole cantaloupes. This will be tough, seeing as how this melon is usually so juicy and delicious. Try substituting pineapple in the meantime.

2. If you’re planning on buying a car, avoid weekends or you may get hit in the head with a chunk of ice. Don’t believe me, ask this guy.

3. Better yet, don’t buy a car, share one. Maybe, if you’re lucky there will soon be some laws in place to help you out.

4. Always use the buddy system when snowboarding in a desolate quarry. Kevin Ramsey did, and even though he was buried under 3 metres of snow, he was out of the hospital in a day.

5. Don’t record a CD unless you can sing, or have musical talent. Mr. Newtown himself thought he’d take a break from racing for a while. How and where can I get a record deal?

6. If you want to get elected into to office, keep your promises. Or not, I haven’t really figured it out. I think as long as you promise stuff before every election and put it in your phantom budget, it doesn’t really matter what you do after you’re elected. Or promise stupid stuff and follow through, that works too.

7. Go to the Museum at midnight. Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal is hosting an all-nighter as part of the highlights festival. It’s a proven fact that art looks much better in the moonlight.

That’s all for the tips of today.

Rejoice people, the days are getting longer.

It's a proven fact that Canadian winters look better in awesome pictures viewed from a computer in Asuncion Paraguay, where at 11Ñ00 pm, its 27C. oops. spanish keyboard. Despite this, call me insane, I really do truly wish to come home. Thanks Robyn!
