DEADLIEST PRIME MINISTER: Round 1


For weeks, nay, MONTHS, we've been barking about our new segment, 'Deadliest Prime Minister'. Well during the september 15th show we actually did the first round draw LIVE on the CJSR Airwaves and met with some suprising, and dare we say, wicked, matchups.

Now before i post the First Round draw, we should perhaps explain, what exactly is going to happen with 'Deadliest Prime Minister' and what the rules are.

1. 'Deadliest Prime Minister' is a computer simulated battle featuring all 22 Canadian Prime Ministers, who will square off in a single elimination tournament..TO THE DEATH!

2. The 'Makin Whoopee Prime Minister Simutron 9000' has been programed with variables and abilities, of each prime minister, and will simulate an individual battle, at least 1 bajillion times, in order to ensure more accurate results.

3. We will Simulate 2 matches per week, until finally we reach the Finals, sometime in Spring 2010.

Now then, here are your first round matchups:

1. Sir Mackenzie Bowell vs Stephan Harper
2. Sir John Thompson vs Brian Mulroney
3. Sir Charles Tupper vs Paul Martin
4. Louis St. Laurent vs Joe Clark
5. John Turner vs Jean Chretien
6. Sir Wilfred Laurier vs Kim Campbell
7. Lester B. Pearson vs William Lyon Mackenzie King
8. Arthur Meighn vs Alexander Mackenzie
9. Sir John A. Macdonald vs Richard Bennett
10. Sir Robert Borden vs Pierre Trudeau
11. Sir John Abbot vs John Deifenbaker

Round One begins October 5th!

Mythbuster Host BOOTS Makin' Whoopee Host? CONFIRMED

Stupid Famous TV Stars. Think they're so big.

So This friday, I was supposed to appear on CJSR's 'Skeptically Speaking', which is the worlds ONLY Skeptical Call in Talk Show. Now I'm not a Skeptic Per say, but I DO LIKE SPORTS (asianhockeyleagueasianhockeyleague) so i was going to talk about Sports Superstitions, and make all the skeptic nerds roll their eyes about that sort of thing.

And then I get a Voicemail from Skeptically Speaking Host, Desiree.

" I may have to bump you, because I might be getting Adam Savage on the show'.

For those who aren't aware who Adam Savage is, You should know that YOU LIVE UNDER A ROCK AND SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF. Adam is one of the hosts of 'Mythbusters', aka, the greatest television production in history.

For a person of that stature to be on CJSR is a pretty big deal, so naturally, I'm whiney about getting bumped. Just between you and Me, I think Desiree was worried i'd tarnish her show's good name and alienate her audience (Agreed), so she had to run out and get one of the coolest dudes on the planet to save her show. Scoff.

You can check out 'Skeptically Speaking' LIVE at 6pm Friday on CJSR, or listen to the podcast at www.skepticallyspeaking.com

Colin!

Podcast Issues - Dangblastit

Hello Internet Listener - I'm having some issues uploading this week's podcast onto my online storage space; i even woke up extra early to give it a try during slow internet hours ( No one plays poker or looks at naughty things at 630am, so the internet is super fast). Looks like its still having a problem, and i've logged a support ticket with my file hosting service. Unfortunately i'll be in the woods all weekend, so i won't be able to try to upload it again until i get back! So you guys have a great weekend, and it will be a double podcast week next week!

Thanks for your patience!
