Canadian insanity, etc.

OK, so I've lived in Canada a total of three weeks.

And in the Globe and Mail yesterday, this:

The weakened remnants of Hurricane Isabel will still cause very heavy rain and extremely high winds when they strike Canada, weather experts said Wednesday.
OK, well that doesn't sound very impressive, bu the Hamilton Spectator (which I couldn't raise online) said today that Isabel would still be a tropical storm by the time it hit Ontario on Friday. Tropical storm in Canada? Crazy, I tell you. And on a smiialr ntoe of brinking insnaity... Form teh Vklooh Cnospciary, tihs psot:
Fcuknig amzanig: Perhaps others have seen this floating around the internet, but it is a first for me:

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Fcuknig amzanig huh?

Yaeh, 'tis.
