Randall's Rule of Trolls

On any Internet site, be it a mailing list, blog comment area, forum, or what have you, there is bound to be trolling.  The less moderated the space, the more trolls there are likely to be.   If you can't tell who the troll is at a particular point, look around.  How many of the recent comments are yours?  How many are in reply to you?  The higher both numbers are, the greater the odds that you are the troll.

Everything doesn't need a title, you know

I can't help but think that if I'm listening to music on my headphones and the people at the back of the streetcar are louder than Axel Rose, then they're being pretty damn loud.

Interesting ...

Three cop cars on Queen street as the streetcar went through a block mostly occupied, on one side, by a church.

Late night thoughts

You know it's been cold lately when you're standing hatless in three-degree weather, and your first thought is, "this is pleasant."  Only later do you wonder, "Where the hell is my hat?"

Most people use Twitter for stuff like this, don't they.  I shall never fit in with the technorati.

Thanks, anonymous graffiti artist

You know, I just realised something about this whole Egyptian kerfuffle:  the revolution is being televised!
