I personally love Rickis, they carry sizes 0-18, have great styles, great sales, great workers and did I mention the great sales? I’ve walked out of there many times with 5 pairs of Jeans for 50 dollars, regular retail of over 250! They also have a great return policy where ”no sale is ever final!”

McDonald’s Mondays: Make McLove, not McWar

Other / Canada

There are only three things in this world that are truly global — war, religion, and McDonald’s.

Ok, ok — I admit, the word “business” probably would have been a little more apt than McDonald’s, but it’s still pretty accurate.  One can’t help but raise the question: are the global nature of war, religion and business inextricably connected?

Thomas Friedman seems to think so.  In his book The Lexus and The Olive Tree, Friedman offers up this bizarre little tidbit: no two countries have gone to war with each other after acquiring McDonald’s franchises.

So why do I bring this up now?  Georgia had to go and wreck Friedman’s theory this past weekend by declaring war on Russia.  Now where’s a brother supposed to go for a Big Mac in the Eastern Bloc?

When you buy a lottery ticket, where does the money go?

Other / Canada

Well, to the winners, obviously.  But what about after that?  What about all the money spent on losing tickets that doesn’t go back out to repay the winners? 

The Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation website has a top-level (and therefore, kinda vague) rundown of where that money ends up;

Every day, Ontario residents gain both directly and indirectly from OLG activities. By creating jobs, stimulating tourism and supporting hospitals, charity groups and cultural and recreational services, OLG is fulfilling its mandate to maximize economic benefits for the people of Ontario.

Since 1975, OLG lotteries, Casinos, Slots, and Resort Casinos have generated more than $23 billion for the benefit of the Province of Ontario. Gaming proceeds support Ontario’s hospitals, amateur sport, recreational and cultural activities, communities, provincial priority programs such as health care and education, and local and provincial charities and non-profit organizations through the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

2% of the annual gross revenue from slot machines at OLG Casinos and Slots has been allocated to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for problem gambling research, treatment, prevention, and public awareness. This is more than any jurisdiction in North America.

So there you have it — hospitals, education, NPO’s — it looks like buying a losing ticket can still make you a winner.  Now if only we could use it as a charitable donation on our T1’s.  😉

More Great Canadian Inventions

Other / Canada


A few months ago we posted about Five Inventions You Didn’t Know Were Canadian.  Lately that post has been getting a lot of traffic again, and on the heels of that we have the following link shared up by reader Fresca.

Culture.ca, the now defunct Canadian culture site run by the federal government has an extensive list of Canadian Inventions and Discoveries — everything from Ginger Ale to IMAX films.   Definitely a fun and interesting read.  Now if only we could invent some kind of meat-flavoured broccoli.

Free Teeth Whitening in Toronto


Want to get those teeth whiter than white?  Lifetime Dental, a new clinic opening September 10th at 3300 Bloor Street West #114, will be offering free teeth whitening’s to the first 100 patients who schedule a complete exam.  If you’re in the market for a new dentist, this might be worth checking out.

They’ll also be serving wine and cheese at their grand opening from 11am-2pm with an RSVP.  Call  416.231.1100 to book in.

BlockBuster Canada: $299 40GB PlayStation 3 (Spider-man Bundle Only)


Have you been holding off on picking up a PS3?  Now’s the time!  Blockbuster Canada is clearing out it’s 40GB PS3 Spiderman 3 bundles for $299.  The MSRP on this one is $399, so you’ll be saving $100!

It might seem like a move prompted by the recent announcement of a new 80GB model that will be replacing the 40GB’s at the same price point, however if it was I would have expected all 40’s to have suffered the same fate.  Chances are we’ll see something similar happen with the remaining 40GB’s when the 80 hits store shelves, though there’s no guarantee the savings will be this big.

Make sure to call your store first.  These ones are going fast.

McDonald’s Mondays: A CNBC Original Presentation

Other / Canada


The other night I walked in the door, and low and behold my wife was taping a CNBC original documentary for me.  Big Mac: Inside the McDonald’s Empire was an interesting, if not enlightening peek behind the closed doors of the world’s largest fast food corporation.  It examined the missteps that lead the company to it’s first ever quarterly loss a few years ago, the change in direction it prompted, and a number of other cool slices of life from behind the glass doors.  We got to meet McD’s head chef responsible for all of the new menu choices.  We saw their rigorous new menu item quality control testing.  We got a peek into their operations in China.  All in all, a pretty cool look at things.

Knowing the cable channels, there’s a good chance this will run over and over again for the next month.  If it doesn’t, you can just hop on the official website to check out some pretty lengthy clips from the show.  A great chance to see how things are done.
