smirking half-hawk

Weirdnesses seen at the gym last night

  • The woman on the exercise bike ahead of me wearing a "Dick and Jane" style t-shirt reading "Jane likes Dick".

  • Doctor Phil on one TV, Geoffrey Tambour on the other, and moments of confusion when I couldn't tell which was which.

  • CityTV's brutally biased bit on gas prices and road repair. Ok, that part, not so weird. More interesting, from the point of view of comparison between what I've been reading via LJ and what the media is running. They were looking at the worst roads in the city, and asking people on the street "Shouldn't the government be spending some of the vast sums of cash they have from the gas tax on fixing these roads?" Everyone, shockingly enough, said that yes, they should.
