Really puts the wonder in Canada's Wonderland

from here

It's not that I WANT to go through a metal detector and have my belongings rifled through when I attend SecTor, rather it's just such a weird juxtaposition going to 2 different events where one has security in it's name while the other has security in it's actions.

from here (source article)

You'd think an employee of one of the web's earliest search portals would know better ways to find stuff than rifling through users' email accounts.
