Current Events.

Here's the thing. I'm not STUPID, per se, but when it comes to current events outside of Britney's latest breakdown and the incredible cuteness of baby Shiloh, I can't seem to retain anything. I listen to the news every day so that I can at least sort of know what's going on in the world, but quiz me half an hour later on what I heard and I'd be like..

Uh.. the teachers want more money. That Sims lady never actually answers questions.

Some kids got hurt in some city on the lower mainland while driving back to school at lunch time. What kind of school was it? Why are they still in school anyway?

Um, there's a war.. over there... And, lots of people are dying, and it has to do with oil... but I don't know if Baghdad is a country or a city within a country.

And a Canadian man has been kidnapped in Haiti. And I only remember the name of the country, because it's on the same island as the Dominican Republic, where we had our honeymoon, but dang it if I can remember the name of that island!

Oh, but some guy who used to coach Montreal is now the new head coach of the Canucks. They now need to find a new coach for the Moose. And yeah, Bertuzzi HAS to go.

Now I get onto my point...

Some country in Asia has missiles. I know it's one of the Korea countries. NOW I even know that it's North Korea, 'cause I googled it. (But was it North Korea, or South Korea that we had a war with in the 70s? or was it the 60s?)

Anyway,

I'm a little worried. North Korea has some missiles that they may or may not test out sometime soon. The missiles may or may not be powerful enough to travel to Alaska or California. North Korea may or may not have the capability in the near future to put a nuclear bomb into one of these missiles and send it over here. To read more about it, click here. The States may or may not have the ability to stop the missile from making it all the way over the Pacific.

Wait a second... BACK UP A BIT... The missiles may or may not be powerful enough to travel to Alaska or California. And, The States may or may not have the ability to stop the missile from making it all the way over the Pacific.

What happens if the missile is headed to Alaska or California, but someone mis-calculates, and actually sends it HALF WAY BETWEEN THE TWO PLACES?!? Um, yeah, that'd be EXACTLY WHERE I LIVE.

And right now, my country, and my province in particular, is involved in some dispute about some wood right now, and wouldn't it just be ever so easy for the American Government to see that that missile is a little off course, and just decide not to do anything, UNLESS, we give in and let them continue to rip us off and steal our lumber? 'Cause we all know CANADA has no way to defend ourselves!

Hey, was that really a stray eyelash, or just some chocolate?

Hmm.

No comment on US/Canada relations - we're probably in the wrong, I just don't know enough about the issues.

The missiles scare me, too.

Mmmm, chocolate.

Couldn't you just round up a pack of killer moose and send them off in the direction of Korea?

Erin~As you can tell, I don't know enough either, but we've got some bitter BCers around here!

Mr. Fab~That's a great idea!

Don't worry about those missiles being pointed in your direction, I think we are pissing them off at the moment so it's likely they would be sent in this direction! But I will admit i'm like you, can't retain information for more than a nano second when it comes to current affairs, at least you have an excuse - preggie brain! I tell people I still have it, and they say 'hey your not pregnant anymore' and my response is 'See it's so bad it forgets i'm no longer pregnant...' Lame I know...
