This is just a test - read only if you have lots of time to waste.

Wow. It looks like you can include videos right into blogger now.

Cool.

Maybe we should put that Flames "Red Hot" video on a constant loop.





This is the end of the test.

Comments:

I think you and Matt should start to include more posts that appear to feature helpful suggestions but are actually snide attacks. Those are always fun.
 


Jesus, that didn't take you long. I just came over from posting that mofo.

Hey, the Alternate Universe Oilers have Chris Phillips! Love that guy. I'm glad the Thornton thing didn't happen though.
 


I don't need to add that the orange-and-blue throwbacks are awesome.
 


Jesus, that didn't take you long. I just came over from posting that mofo.

Evening constitutional litigation seminar-I'm catching up on the news during the boring bits (ie. the polemics against Harper; my prof thinks that his plan to have elected Senators may be unconstitutional).

I'm looking forward to next week's class when 7 or 8 people may well light themselves on fire.
 


Hey, how the hell did you do that?
 


I think I got it. You just have to use Google video, right?
 


By the way, is your prof seriously prepared to contend that if Alberta holds a Senate election, and Zarley Zalapski wins, it is constitutional for the Prime Minister to then request the appointment of any qualified Albertan but Zarley Zalapski? Because that's the upshot of that argument, and I can't possibly count how many different species of mammal it blows.
 


Yep. Google video and then just cut and paste the code.

I think there is another way too if you mess around with the template code. But that seemed way to confusing to me.
 


By the way, I wasn't using Zalapski as a casual example. He should totally be up in that bitch.
 


Alternate Universe Oilers Keith Primeau is a stud. The real Keith Primeau might take three seasons to score as many goals as he did in that highlight package.
 


I don't think Harper's plan is to just appoint Senator's that the provinces elect, is it?

And can you honestly say that you would take Zalapski over Bret Hart? Hand to face, Cosh. The Excellence of Execution totally belongs in the Red Chamber before Zalapski. And what about The Fast Freight from Mississippi State?
 


Yeah, because we need another guy from the '50s Eskimos backfield in charge of shit.

Harper's plan, as I understand it, is exactly that--to appoint senators that provinces elect, if they choose to elect them. The ones like Quebec, who supposedly don't want to hold elections, will presumably have to live with Harper's choices.
 


By the way, is your prof seriously prepared to contend that if Alberta holds a Senate election, and Zarley Zalapski wins, it is constitutional for the Prime Minister to then request the appointment of any qualified Albertan but Zarley Zalapski?

She's apparently a brilliant constitutional scholar but yeah, I saw the same problem with her position. Constitutional law is a pretty lefty field as it is and I think a lot of them are coming unhinged. It's the equivalent of all the muttering and bitching that took place in Alberta in June and July of 2004. They shouldn't be held to anything that they say right now, like an Oilers fan after watching 2 of the first 3 shots elude Conklin.

I have to say, it's a good time to be in the belly of the beast. If the Tories blow this, I'll be horribly depressed but as of right now I plan to be a poor winner at the party I'm going to Monday night and in classes all of next week.

And as long as we're choosing Senators from Alberta, I note that historically, it's been a place to put people who've served you loyally but who are kind of awkward to keep around any longer. It'd be nice to start sending our ex-Oilers there as opposed to hiring them to by GM, coach, assistant coach, powerplay coach, scout, whatever Buchberger does etc.

Of course, it'd also be a useful place to send Ty Conklin. I'm sure he'd gladly retire if he was offered a guaranteed 100K until the age of 75. Why this isn't an election issue in Edmonton is beyond me.
