Really? i did not know that. thanks for setting me straight. but it still is going to be an amazing game no matter what platform its on. although i also thought Killzone was going to be the best game on PS2.

Right now the 360 is in front of the PS3 simply because there are more of them out there and they have more games. plus Xbox live is pretty good. once the PS3 is around longer its true power will show and it will eventually surpass the 360, the only concern is online play. Assassin's Creed is going ...

im pretty sure ron was a linesman before he was working on HNIC. he did a pretty good job, although he called a lot of penalties. but i guess thats how they do it nowadays and besides thats another topic entirely.

Ya there is no way the raptors will win a championship in the next 5 years. i agree with you camerontech, the Leafs at least have a competitive team. but they probably wont win anytime soon either. they are lacking at least one more key scorer, another D-man and a standout goalie. once they get thos...

I think the most horrifying would be sitting in your trenches when a huge cloud of poison gas sweeps over you and there is nothing you can do but sit and die or run and get shot.

History channel did a series on the battles of WWI. Including Dieppe, and an indepth look at John McCrae. Awesome stuff. http://www.kingandempire.com/ I just watched it today. It was the first episode entitled "Baptism by Fire" about the Second Battle of Ypres. They also did one on WWII last year. ...

I think you can guess what my favorite beer is (Alexander Keith's for the blockheads out there). But I also like GW and Brewhouse (i dont think they make it anymore though). and Brewsters wheat lager (restaurant chain).

Gas in Regina has dropped to 101.9. Its amazing. But it wont last for long. When Hurricane Rita hits the coast of Texas, the prices will soar. 25% of the US's refining capabilities are in that region.

Has anyone heard anything about a new national gas price cap?

Thanks ShepherdsDog for correcting me. I must of read the post to fast. I was conveniently at RRMC last month. I checked it out on the web to see what type of university it was because it looked like a military installation. It is now a university that "addresses the need of the global workplace". I...

(Pierre Burton is BTW Canada's know historian and authour and is a companion of the Order of Canada). 2) Next is Da...

I was offered the chance to go to RRMC when it was still a military establishment, but opted for a civilian university. It took me over a year to land a decent job after graduation. Isn't RMC still controlled by the military? Hence the name Royal Military College? I'm thinking of going to RMC also....
