gnomes missing? Blame the French
Always smiling, my neighbour's gnome had the rosiest cheeks and was dressed
in bright clothing – he seemed to be quite content. However, was
he genuinely happy or was he just another victim of human oppression?
Think you're happy? Check out these people
The Secret Society of Happy People was started by a woman named Pamela
Gail who wanted to see people stop being "parade-rainers" and
begin to enjoy life again. In an interview, Gail shared her views on happiness
and happy people. Here is what the founder of this smile-stricken society
had to say.
Left is right
What hand do you use to scratch your back? What ear do you hold the phone
to? When folding your arms, what arm is on top?
If you are right-handed, but answered "left" to any of these
three questions, you could be more left-handed than you thought. The Left-Handed
Liberation Society, otherwise known as the Left-Handed Liberation Front,
is working hard to make sure left-handed people around the world are not
stigmatized for the use of their left hand.
Got evil? Go to Carleton
Back in 1997, the administration at Carleton University had an arch-nemesis.
They were angry at a small collective of students who called themselves
"The Carleton League of Super Villains" (http://sulkor.tripod.ca).
