In junior high school and elementary school, one of the worst things somebody can tell you is that you’re a nerd. In many cases, being labeled a nerd is the kiss of death. By being designated a nerd or a geek, your social circle instantly shrink. Your social prospects, as well as how people relate to you change overnight. The good news is that as socially limiting and potentially problematic being nerdy may be in elementary school, junior high school or even high school, the reality is that nerds run the world. If you want to get a good idea of nerds that shaped the world in profound ways, you only need to look at Bill Gates and the people that invented the internet. My son is gay « Nerdy Apple Bottom

Toronto Humane Society warns pets vulnerable at Halloween TORONTO - Ghosts, goblins, ghouls and gore - regardless of being fake - could lead to growls from pets at Halloween, the Toronto Humane Society warned Tuesday. While humans can spot the difference between dressed-up candy-callers, THS executive director Garth Jerome said pets do not revel in the costumes, decorations, loud noises and a constant flow of people at front doors. Indeed, he said, frequent visitors can cause anxiety in pets, even cause them to bolt outside in a bid to escape. Worse, some can be targeted. "It's important to keep our pets safe at Halloween as sadly, they are often victims of cruel pranksters,," Jerome said in a statement. Black cats, often associated with witchcraft, "are particularly vulnerable," he stated.

TORONTO - Mike Colle is itching for a fight. With a bed bug infestation spreading across in North America, especially in urban centres, the Toronto MPP is hosting a summit Wednesday in a bid to battle the bitsy blood-suckers. And victim Carol Gilmore will be up-front at the conference in Queen's Park to relate her summer-long nightmare. "I thought I was in hell," she told The Sun on Tuesday.
