Thanks to Chuck, K has gone full-tilt on apocalypse scenarios and peak oil - leading to the ever-important discussion of strategacolypse. I’m pro-underground. I think hiding in a bunker until everyone kills everyone else and then re-emerging to rebuild society is the best way to survive. (This is a non-zombie scenario obvi.) K thinks you should tape machetes to your hands and phone books...
Friday spam alert!
What a stupid face you have here amil.niazi Enter my fantasy chamber Ah vanity and poor spelling. You know me so well spam!
K never cries, and only two films have moved him to tears 1)Armageddon and 2)Best of the Best. Must be some kind of “guy” thing. Also, this is the most heartmelting thing I’ve seen all year. chuckmore: Man I must be in really rough shape or something without even knowing it. Seriously, I almost started crying when I watched this video… Or maybe I just secretly loved Armageddon?

Dispatcher: “Be on the alert for a tall male, dark jeans, dark shirt carrying a large bottle of wine.” Consider me on extremely high alert.
A conversation in two parts
Elaine: What the frock, Amil. I sense a neo-Victorian agenda being shoved down my throat? Are we short on babies and traditional families? Are they gearing us up for World War 3?
Me: It's the Sex and the City backlash. Stop crowing and start crowning (as in your baby's head coming out of your vagina - the vagina that's too stretched out from having babies to have sex)
Leave us alone Globe and Mail Life Section, we don't need your shit.
Almost makes me wish I had a baby to abort in protest.

Things never to say at work
A magazine called Diversity Inc published a bunch of things never to say in an office to certain people. It’s pretty amazing to imagine their readership if an average reader is thinking, “Damn, why did I ask the new black guy at work if he’s in a gang? I wish I had this list sooner.” Things NEVER to say to people with disabilities: - Were you born that way? (Amil note:...

I couldn’t agree more. Food: Can we get some free food up in here? Shut Up: Dude, you are old and we already know how to do this stupid job, so please just shut up. Don’t Sweat It: Don’t sweat it, man. We got it all under control. Don’t freak out. Money: Pay us more, why don’t you? Work: It totally sucks. Nothing you can do about it. Sorry.

Visions of the future
One of my favourite moments this weekend was watching Chuck and K talk about living through the apocalypse. K’s already starting to collect machetes to tape onto his hands, you know, just in case.
