CIBC fraud department sleuths and their amazing investigative abilities
It only took CIBC five days and one false conclusion to determine that an email from "cibcstatements@sarcoplex.com" and signed "C..I..B..C Online Services" was not real. See the incredible detective work below:

Petra's Call flash webcomic


Petra's Call is an innovative flash-based webcomic from Ninja Robot Dinosaur that you should definitely check out. There are 15 episodes currently, all available through the embedded flash app above.

I met the creator Shane Neville years ago in Vancouver. He since moved out to the Maritimes, but looks like he's back in Lotusland in 2010. Exciting!

Vancouver Critical Mass Bike Ride
critical mass

Critical Mass is a fun bike ride that lets everyone cycle parts of the city that are normally overrun with cars. Costumes are encouraged in our monthly bike parade!

Vancouver details:
Meet at the North end of the Art Gallery.
On the last Friday of every month.
Announcements at 6 PM, we ride at 6:15.

Critical Mass uses ad hoc organization through the ride. Every cyclists looks out for each other. It's important for safety that all the bicyclists stay together in one large group. Safety in numbers.

Stop and "cork" open intersections to cars. This is a very rewarding experience and a good opportunity to see the beautiful parade go by. After corking you'll be at the back of the ride, and can play the peloton game of racing to the front.

People at the front need to choose the route in real-time and shouldn't get too far ahead. The group will stop after the top of bridges or big hills and let everyone catch up. If the mass is big it should stay on larger streets so we have more lanes and can ride together.

critical mass

Critical Mass is many things to its many participants. Partly it is a non-violent protest for bicycle rights. A gathering for the thousands of cyclists in the city. We deserve more of the road and Critical Mass is our proof. These are our streets and we want to ride our bikes on them.

First and foremost it is a celebration of Vancouver and bicycling! Everyone is welcome to ride. Have fun and be nice to people along the parade route!

Jingle all the way
CBC has announced their five finalists to replace the Hockey Night in Canada theme:

http://anthemchallenge.cbc.ca/home

The choice here is, in my humble opinion, so obvious that the contest isn't really necessary.

CBC: Competitor Buyout Completed
Poor, poor English CBC television. Degrassi, the Olympics, the Junos, the Grey Cup, and now the coup de grace.

What's next: Beachcombers TNG on CTV? HGTV buying the I.P. rights to Rusty and Jerome?
Global buying the perpetual exclusive rights to boring documentaries on the Royal Family?

CBC- Chrisdye before cable
When I was very young, I watched altogether too much CBC. Sometimes, I would get up really early to watch it sign on (!) It would begin with this awesomely hokey montage anthem (although I only really remember the last 15 seconds, where the kids cheer the highjumper): http://youtube.com/watch?v=U_vloXL52DI

At about 7AM, there was a 10-minute show called "Parlez-moi", which tried to teach French to kids. But they spoke so fast and introduced so many words at once that I watched hundreds of episodes without learning a word: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vilHNrxUdgs

It Makes Me Think I'm Not Real
Webcomic: A Lesson Is Learned But The Damage Is Irreversible

It's been on hiatus since May 2006 but I really like the style and feel. Different comics make think of different people I know; I love it when art does that.
