Here’s the description of Garfield Minus Garfield, a site featuring Garfield comic strips in which Garfield has been removed:
Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness in a quiet American suburb.
What if money had instructions on the back? Basic economic facts, wise slogans, etc? I think it would be useful.
In case you’re a little shaky on the first principles of money, here they are:
In the absence of other factors, more money is better than less money.
Real money is better than fake money.
Money now is worth more than the same amount of money later.
If given a choice, it’s better to spend someone else’s money than your own (thanks to BNK for telling me about this rule).
One particular reason I dislike Lodwick: this video, in which he suggests that the way to keep a company vibrant is to harass the old people so that they leave. Perhaps if he listened to some of these old people, he might already know a little bit more about the instructions for money.
With the weather forecast predicting a whole week’s worth no snow and above-freezing temperatures — not to mention the threat of a transit strike — I figured it was time to dust off the Scorpion King (pictured below) and resume cycling to work.
The bike commute from my home in the High Park area to b5media’s Queen and Spadina location is about a third longer than my old one to Tucows, so it isn’t that drastic a change, and the transition to cycling to work after about four months worth of transit commuting wasn’t difficult at all. I’m looking forward to some good cycling to work, and if the weather will cooperate, some commutes in the sun.
