FAMILY GUY: Star wars edition

The premier of Family guy was on last night. The premier was essentially a retelling of 'A New Hope' with the fam guy characters. IT RAWKED.

If you didn't see it get going to You Tube or other sites that might have it up already. For any Star Wars fan or fanatic this episode will keep you laughing and the edge of your seat for nostalgia and satire (there is also a great nod to the original Dr. Who series).

Anyway it just blew me away. Go... NOW! Find it, watch it and enjoy!

Quick commentary on the recent liberal defeat in Quebec during the three by-elections.

1. Thom Mulcair's popularity won Outremont not the NDP. Secondly, while this might be the case the liberals clearly have an immense credibility problem and their organization seemed fairly shoddy as well.

2. While the Tories won in the BQ heartland, all I can say is better a nominally federalist party than the BQists.

Overall the political landscape is as rocky and unpredictable as it has been for some time. I continue to predict that at this point unless the Tories cause their own collapse (which I don't think they'll do) we will not have another election until the scheduled date in 2009.

"Russia unveils its ‘vacuum bomb'


MOSCOW — Russia has tested the world's most powerful vacuum bomb, an explosive device unleashing a destructive shockwave with the power of a nuclear weapon, the military said on Tuesday.

The bomb is the latest in a series of new Russian weapons and policy moves unveiled as President Vladimir Putin tries to reassert Moscow's role on the international stage.

"Test results of the new airborne weapon have shown that its efficiency and power is commensurate with a nuclear weapon," Alexander Rukshin, Russian deputy armed forces chief of staff, told Russia's ORT First Channel television.

"You will now see it in action, the bomb which has no match in the world is being tested at a military site," the state-controlled channel said. It showed a Tupolev Tu-160 strategic bomber dropping the bomb over a testing ground. A large explosion followed.

Pictures followed of what looked like a flattened multi-storeyed block of flats, surrounded by scorched soil and boulders.

"The defence ministry stresses this military invention does not contradict a single international treaty. Russia is not unleashing a new arms race," the channel said.

Such devices generally detonate in two stages. First a small blast disperses a main load of explosive material into a cloud, which then either spontaneously ignites in air or is set off by a second charge.

This explosion generates a pressure wave that reaches much further than that from a conventional explosive. The consumption of gases in the blast also generates a partial vacuum that can compound damage and injuries caused by the explosion itself.

"The main destruction is inflicted by an ultrasonic shockwave and an incredibly high temperature," the report said. "All that is alive merely evaporates."

"At the same time, I want to stress that the action of this weapon does not contaminate the environment, in contrast to a nuclear one," Mr. Rukshin said."

Its great to see the touching care that the russian military has for our environment as they construct weapons of mass destruction.

Hey Brian, at least when Trudeau engaged debates and viscious attacks on people and issues he did it when his opponents were still alive.

I wonder Brian, do you believe attacking the dead qualifies you for moral leadership in our society or does it just allow you the "win" you could never get when he was alive. Either way... very very sad.
