Me, Electronics, and Water
Never give me an electronic device. Here is how long it took before each one met their fate.
- SONY Walkman: 4 Months, drowned in water bottle.
- SkullCandy Headphones (x4): 2 Months, washing machine.
- Canon 550D+18-55mm: 5.5 Hours, Fell into Mud Puddle
- Canon 55-250mm: 4 Months, Walked off end of dock.
- MyMyk SmartMyk: 9 Months, Washing Machine
Again, spread the word: I am become death, destroyer of electronics.
A Reminder to all Boaters this Summer
I work in a rental location, loaning out canoes, kayaks, paddleboards and rowboats. So far, I have had to perform four rescues from large, 6-person canoes. In every instance alcohol was involved (not on my end). In one instance, the family lost all their credit cards, drivers licenses and cash.
I no longer allow anyone to rent a boat if they are the least bit tipsy or have even an unopened beer with them. Boating laws in Canada prohibit the use of drugs or alcohol while on watercraft, and operation of a watercraft while under the influence is also illegal.
Do yourself a favour and enjoy your summer responsibly, not like idiots. Alcohol and water do not mix in any fun way. I would also like to remind readers that consuming alcohol in provincial parks is prohibited unless within the confines of your campground.
Thank you, enjoy your summer!

Working in a Boat Rental Store
A guy came into the boathouse today and said the following: “Hey guys, do planes always leave chemtrails over Manning Park?” “No, they never do.” “Look it up, you might be surprised. You see those white lines behind the planes? They aren’t condensation, they are chemicals. I can’t believe they’re doing this even over parks.” Once he was out the door, I turned to my manager and said (and I quote), “God give me the strength not to beat that man for his stupidity.” My coworker looked genuinely confused.
