Have you heard that PVC shower curtains are bad for you? Ignore it. Seriously, it's bullshit. Normally I don't buy into 'conspiracy theories', but every year they come up with something new that's going to kill you (and usually it fades into obscurity within another year). I remember when I was a kid and they said hotdogs cause cancer.
This isn't the 1800's people, it's the modern world. It's not like we're using heroine to make our kids calm down. There are people that safety test this stuff, they don't just throw it on the market for us to use. Until someone I personally know gets cancer from eating a hotdog and talking on their cellphone and showering, I'm going to keep doing all three.
(In my mind I'm arguing with myself 'You don't know anyone who died of falling off a cliff, so are you going to go do jumping jacks near a ravine?' 'SHUT UP BRAIN!')
The video for "Weighty Ghost" by Wintersleep, which I linked a while back, has won an MMVA for Best Independent Video. This pleases me.
Edit: Oh yeah. What's with the president of Afghanistan threatening to invade Pakistan? The only reason he has a damned country is because of the coalition. If he wants to go invading, I say Canada should get the hell out, let them fight their own damn war.
