Driving in The Shininess

A photo I took (from the passenger seat) of the view through the windshield as we approached a set of traffic lights with cars lined up in 3 lanes. All the lights reflecting off the wet pavement made it very difficult to see. It's like this many nights in St. John's (humidity comes out of the air as it cools down, I suppose). I call it "The Shininess".

Scotiabank expands across the universe

I've been watching the first season of Battlestar Galactica (the remake series) recently. Today, while watching an episode, this scene caught my eye:

(this image is a screen-shot and is owned by whomever owns Battlestar Galactica)
The heading of "Cylon-Occupied Captrica" is to indicate that the planet Caprica, one of 12 colony planets of the people who feature in the TV series, has been taken over by the enemy synthetic race of Cylons. That's not why I put the picture up though - take a close look at the logo atop the central tower in the image.

It's the Scotiabank logo. So perhaps I should switch banks, as clearly no one can match this bank's number of service locations.
