You wouldn’t believe it, except that you have been here the entire time.

Old School is one of the greatest cult films ever made. It is a classic, and everytime I see it on TV I watch it. There are so many great scenes it is impossible to say which one is my favourite, but when Frank the Tank decides to "Do just one" at the frat party it starts a hilarious sequence that ends with Frank streaking down the street only to have his wife and her friends pull up beside him. Frank went to the party with the best of intentions: to stay sober.
"Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time," said Frank when questioned why he wasn't drinking. I guarantee many of you guys found yourselves at Bed, Bath & Beyond after this movie, because when your wife or girlfriend asked you to go with her, you instantly thought of Frank, started laughing, and decided you needed to check the place out.
You knew deep down it wouldn't be that great of a place, but you needed to see for yourself, and tonight you will do the exact same thing. You know the Oiler/Wild game probably won't be great, but you won't be able to stop yourself from watching it to see if the Oilers will extend their STREAK to 16 consecutive losses in Minnesota.

Sweet Jordan Eberle's flaxen mane - the distant future shall soon be upon us! Still think its 1974? Peep this video of Quadrocopters that have been programmed to play table tennis with one another. As you watch these things pinging back and forth like a robotic Forrest Gump, ask yourself if we really aren't on the verge of a Brave New World.
Soon enough Terminator and Robocop will be for sale in your local Best Buy and we will all be complaining about it." A new Terminator has been made? I just bought the old Terminator at Christmas and it was twice the price!"
That's the future for you we suppose. Speaking of pondering the distant future now, the Downtown Arena debate is closing in on a key deadline and needs all our help.

Citizen Alpha handed us the reins to convert the Team 1260 radiola transmissions into pod cast ready files. It took us only four days to figure out how to do this, minus a break last night to watch the Oilers get smoked by the Kings at Rexall Place.
Next week it shouldn't take as long.*
*That's what she said.
Update: All segments are now working too. Take that Grade 3 teacher who said we can't solve problems with critical thinking.

What the Edmonton Oilers might do in the future or what they could've accomplished this season had an already thin and raw roster not been riddled by injuries is up to debate. That this edition of the Oilers will set several franchise records for ineptitude and futility is not.
