Why can't people just come out and say that they are wrong sometimes?
If you make a mistake, say so, and get on with it.
Why is it that a business who lies, gets fined or worse, but there is no governing body for political truth in advertising? What is wrong with us?
It took me years to look at myself, and realize if I made a mistake it was not the end of the world.
We are not born perfect, so why do we…
A long time ago my sons were addicted to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and it was known they fictitiously resided in a sewer. It wasn't your ordinary sewer location like those in Jennifer Toth's book The Mole People; it actually looked like something you could call home. So what possessed five Calgary, Alberta headbangers to suddenly call the local sewer "party central" this…Continue
