Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Say’s Law – Supply Creates Demand

“A well-known dictum of macroeconomics is Say’s Law: that supply creates demand.” I independently discovered this, I didn’t know it was called Say’s Law. Before I created the Pet Foil Hat Technology, no one bought foil hats for pets. My supply, created the demand. The same can be said for plenty of things in dollar ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Apple’s Welcoming Ceremony Challenged By Robot

I’m cool with a robot waiting in line for a little tech innovation. Get used to it, cyborg haters. https://t.co/Q4Omggedoc — Kashmir Hill (@kashhill) September 25, 2015 It makes more sense than a human wasting their time. “Since the iPhone’s official release in 2007, waiting outside for a new iPhone has become something of a ...

Dead Wild Roses: Thank Goodness for Rick Mercer and the CBC – The Para-Pan Am Games

Rick Mercer reports on our Canadian para-Panam/para-Olympic athletes with a vivacious gusto and aplomb that leaves one smiling and quite pleased to be Canadian.  I am very glad the CBC exists and can provide a platform for the likes of Mercer and the good, often funny, work that he does.

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: We Are Not Charmaine Borg, We Are The Conservatives

Ms. Borg is an NDP MP, and is most definitely not one of these Conservative trained seals. It's funny but I think they left out female MPs to make it look like CPC are a bunch of old white men https://t.co/k42JOtTSTC — Stephen Maher (@stphnmaher) July 30, 2015 This is hilarious. 13 Conservative MPs deliver ...

Dead Wild Roses: Canadian Road Signs Interpreted by Tourists

Ah, the wonders of travelling abroad.  Signage, as much as designers would like us to believe it to be true, is hardly universal.  In my own voyages, most recently Iceland, exit signs look like this: I have to admit, from an ‘objective’ perspective, the sign makes complete sense.  Person walking toward door = exit.  However, ...
