It’s a busy day for me today, so my Poutine research is put on hold until I take care of some client work first. Some of my hunches are panning out and some aren’t.
Anyways, If you like me and burdened by things like science and facts and have difficult believing the myth of Noah’s Ark, well I have your salvation at hand. Enjoy!
If we squirrels get it, why can’t humans figure it out?

The Daily Zorpheous
If I missed any please let me know, I may added them.
When we know about who Pierre Poutine is, I’ll update the credits for this Daily Zorpheous.
Parts of this story have been removed as the sources that they relied on are now being called into question. I am leaving my Exchange with Stephen Taylor intact, to fair to him.
UPDATE - Stephen Taylor has gotten back to me on this issue, after much badgering on my part (I think it was the Dean del Mastro comparison that finally got to him). So in a Twitter exchange (the one which he responded to, and personally I don’t think 140 character micro blogging really is suitable for this issue) I asked the following;
- What specific Voter Suppression methods were discussed?
- Why were these methods discussed?
- And was Pierre Poutine there?
- none to my knowledge.
- See previous answer,
- and no.
So maybe Stephen wasn’t the same room, maybe he wasn’t paying attention, at least we have him on the record now. Stephen Taylor asked me to update this post, so I will of course comply and I may post more later. As for question #3, it had to be asked, both funny and relevant. So there we have, Stephen Taylor the record, even if the record is this blog.
This Story is being updated
Update one the Update
It has come to my attention after reading some news reports that John Fryer, who made the initial reports about the Manning Centre’s Election Training has issued an apology regarding his remarks (see below) I for one have no desire to be involved in another party’s legal fights when it comes to defamation or even possible defamation. For this reason I am removing the contents of this article until such time that they can be confirmed or denied.

I had given up on blogging and then I dabbled with it for a bit, off an on. The reasons for leaving are complicated,… various events in the blogosphere sour my taste for it,… certain events in my life just made me loose interest in the task,… And then, when I finally thought I was out, the big pile of dead stupid (aka The Harper Government) pulled me back in.
When I first heard about RoboCon, I figured, “mhah, just the usual bs from Ottawa” Then the evidence started to mount. So ok, one firm case in Guelph, could easily be an isolated case. Then the other ridings started reporting the same thing,…
Sigh, I can not ignore an assault on our democracy like this. This is worse than ADScam, this is worse than Buckets of Gewal (sp?), this is for worse than the In & Out scandal.
So I’m back, I’m going to dust off my Digital Graphics Tablet, I’m going to hunt down all my graphic files (this might take awhile), I’m going to dig out all my graphics software. Not sure how often I’m going to post, not promising anything. The Daily Zorpheous may be Daily, maybe weekly,…
But I’m back, with all my squirrelly goodness.
SO FEAR MY SQUIRRELLY WRATH!!!
I know I haven’t been blogging much lately,… but I really have a good excuse for it,… actually it is more of a series of excuses caused by one event in my life,… but the excuses are for another blog post,… one that will do it justice.
Anyhoo,… I have been out biking around Toronto, mainly at night. I have started to pack along my Nikon D80, now that I proper bags that fit my bike. On my ride last night I was coming back from Tommy Thompson Park and I was passing Cherry Beach and I saw a music video shoot. It was the band Low Level Flight (not that I ever heard them before) Don’t know what song they record for, it didn’t sound too bad. I managed to get a few semi-non-crappy pictures
I know they are not the best, but since they were shooting a video, I didn’t think they would want a flash going off and I didn’t have a tripod. So I pushed the ISO to 1600 and tried to hold as steady as possible.
