27 Million Ways To Live Your Life


Build it. Race it. Survive. Sure, it sounds like the tag line for a new reality show, but it's actually a challenge that George Brown College's faculty of technology has laid out for high school students: to assemble and program a nifty maze-running micro robot.

It's all part of the college's annual Technology In The City, which from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. today will host hundreds of high schoolers and industry leaders. Stop in and talk to professors, students and graduates of every tech program, from computers to masonry, plumbing to architecture at the Casa Loma campus at 160 Kendal Ave. See http://www.gbrownc.on.ca for details.

If you've ever been a front-line receptionist — or had to deal with the public at all, really — you know there are crazy ranting people out there just waiting for you to pick up the phone. Ever wonder where they get their nutty scripts?

Look no further: just surf on over to http://www.pakin.org and check out the hysterical "Automatic Complaint Letter Generator."

Just type in the name of the person or company you want to complain about and bingo bango, the generator produces a top-notch, irate and totally convoluted letter. Never the same complaint twice!

Just one of the grown-up features at this week's feast of oral literature, the 26th annual Toronto Festival of Storytelling is Queers In Your Ears: Obsessions & Other Fixations (Thursday at 8 p.m., $10). Five queers will tell you their tall tales at This Ain't the Rosedale Library at Church and Wellesley Sts. Or check out Evalyn Parry's Outspoke! this Sunday for subversive stories, funky beats and dramatic monologues from multi-talented artists (Hugh's Room at 7:30 p.m., $17). Go to http://www.storytellingtoronto.org for more details and locations.
