Friday Five

Friday Five
1. What is your town/state known for?
Town: Toronto is known for being big, and multicultural and clean. In the rest of Canada, it's known for being big, arrogant and obnoxious.
Province: Ontario is known for being where Toronto is. It's also got the national capitol somewhere.

2. Everybody worries about something. What do you worry about?
I worry most about interactions with people. I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night remembering an embarassing moment from 20 years ago.

3. Who are you?
Batman? An interstitial man.
4. What do you want to achieve in life?
Achieve? I've already got the things I really wanted. There's other stuff that would be nice, but nothing that would make my life a success or failure.

5. What would you tell the leaders of all the countries on earth to do
to promote world peace?
Food and clean water. Then education. That's a good start. But, really, looking at the "civilized" nation where that stuff is fairly easy to come by, that's clearly not enough. The only thing that seems to keep people from fighting wars is the threat of someone else beating them badly if they start. All we need is an infallible, omniscient overlord with really big guns.

Or, alternatively, reinstate the tradition of having the people who make the political decision to go to war fight on the front lines.
