Friends, Enemies, and Internet Losers: I have returned.

Squeeky wheels

Dear Olympic Protesters,

The Olympics will be over soon and you can chant your chorus of “I told you so” then. Until that point, how about just shutting the hell up for a few weeks?

Here’s a little bit of wisdom from Douglas Adams’ The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:

“Some factual information for you. Have you any idea how much damage that bulldozer would suffer if I just let it roll straight over you?”

“How much?” said Arthur.

“None at all.”

  1. Once a loader nearly flipped onto me. I wasn’t protesting anything, though. I was driving it.

  2. Can they still bust into your home and take down your anti-Olympics posters from your windows if they want to?

    • Well, not legally; they amended the by-law but there has been one instance where an anti-Olympic mural on the frontage of a gallery was determined by the city to be “graffiti” and the land owner was asked to have it “cleaned up.”
      So, it’s a touchy area still. I’m just getting a little tired of the Vancouver pro-protesters who complain about eveything and anything. Right now complaining about the Olympics is about as effective as complaining about our rain. They don’t seem to grasp the fact that “poorly spent” money becomes wasted money with every disruption they pull.

  3. This post surprised me coming form you…somewhat. I’m much better at oral discussion than written so…
