Remember When With Al Popil
evel knievel comp
Hi Don,

Does anybody remember this guy? Evel Knievel. In 1974, he failed to jump across the Snake River Canyon in the Skycycle X-2, a steam-powered rocket. The rocket is now on display at the Harley Davison Museum in Milwaukee. Knievel died in 2007. I don't remember the year I took these pictures.

Exchange Of The Day

SUBJECT: Live Chat

* The quality of AHS goes up and down like a bride's nightie!
And that is undeniable. Klein made that the standard in the early 90s.
So to make that statement without reference to time or where in Alberta seems meaningless to me.
My impression (also rather meaningless) is that over the last 18 months, AHS has been in rather good shape. I'm a bit concerned over top-heavy administration, though.

* Guess I, and several others I know, have been extremely lucky in this regard.

* I know of 6 people who needed surgery (knee, hysterectomy, hip) and the shortest wait for any of them was 8 months. The longest was one person who had to wait over 2 years to get her knee surgery.

* Are you against changes to our Health Care Act? We need a new system, the current one is broken:
BC General Surgeons @BCSurgeons
% Waiting >4months for elective surgery
Germany 0 %
Netherlands 5 %
France 7 %
US 7 %
NZ 8 %
Australia 18%
UK 21 %
Canada 25 %

* Speaking from personal experience, I have never had to wait this long for surgery - of any sort.
That being said, I have come up against other dept's (i.e. MRI) that may erroneously over-ride the surgeons decisions and create major backlogs in the system.

11 People On A Rope

11 People On A Rope
Eleven people were hanging on a rope under a helicopter.

10 men and one woman.

The rope was not strong enough to carry them all so they decided that one had to leave, otherwise they were all going to fall.

They weren't able to choose that person until the woman gave a very touching speech.

She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids or for men in general, and was used to always making sacrifices with little in return.

As soon as she finished her speech, all the men started clapping.




A roundup of bits from the web.

* Scientists Urge Governments To Turn Old TV Frequencies Into Free “Super Wifi”.

* From Aladdin's extravagant palace to Santa's cozy abode, this year's most fantastical (and edible) Gingerbread House winners.

* Wife kills husband after coming to his aid.

Illinois Mechanic Builds Upside-Down Car

Illinois Mechanic
As an auto shop worker, Rick Sullivan has had to repair cars that have been flipped over.

Now, he has modified a truck so that it looks upside-down.

Sullivan spent six months and $6,000 building the upside-down truck from the parts of two separate vehicles: a 1991 Ford Ranger pickup truck and a 1995 F-150 pickup truck body placed over the top complete with spinning wheels.

Details on Huff Post.
