My (Short) Twitter Conversation with Fit Finlay and Masakatsu Funaki

I’m a sucker for all things martial arts and pro wrestling. When I heard that one of my favourite wrestlers, David “Fit” Finlay was a shooter, I began searching the internet for matches in which I could see his catch wrestling wizardry and knowledge of the martial arts. One day, I came across a YouTube video in a language I never heard before (Welsh?) in which Finlay wrestled Masaharu Funaki in a promotion called Reslo. Could it be? Could this Masaharu Funaki who looked, dressed and wrestled like Masakatsu Funaki be THE Masakatsu Funaki? I had to find out.

ISIS killed children on a field trip. How tough and manly of you, ISIS. God is surely impressed with your devotion and bravery. Your mothers must be so proud of you. Here, you deserve a (poisoned) biscuit.

Rant: Canadian History in Quebec Schools

Back when I was in school, Canadian history was one of these subjects no one rBoring Canadian history in Quebeceally studied hard for because unlike math and physics, it wasn’t a subject that determined in what program you could be accepted. I feel a widespread lack of interest in Canadian history in Quebec. Canadian Children’s introduction to their country’s history is in school and Quebec’s curriculum is probably why they think it’s so dull. Here’s why the Quebec history program is so boring:
