Donald Trump... Narcissist in Chief!

Why you all ignoring the refugee rape culture in Europe…mainstream media has you gulping up its programming?

You mean stuff like this?

"Trump: I did try and fuck her. She was married."

"Trump: Look at you, you are a pussy."

"Trump: Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything."

"Trump: Oh, it looks good."

Or Berlusconi? Dominic Strauss-Khan? Julian Assange?

Woman got raped in the parking lot of Simon Fraser University this week.

The Decline of Vancouver.

Discussion about 10lane bridges to Ladner wouldn't exist if we didn't have policies that encourage driving and sprawl.

So true. You want to live somewhere where you can walk to everything. Requires the type of far-sighted thinking that has never existed in most of North America.

Shifter cable on my bike snapped during a ride yesterday. I was distraught.

How did this cabal manage to screw up in getting her elected over Trump?

An Insider tells me they took the final vote while the Devil was taking a bathroom break. Devil comes out saying "Dudes, I just took a Devil of a shit!" and then it was like, "Awww … WTF?" and just like that, Trump became President.

MIPS Technology - Your guys take?

I have a POC Cortex Flow DH helmet with MIPS. I got it because it fit me well, was comfortable and light - carbon shell - and on sale. I've read up on the MIPS stuff - it uses slip layers in the helmet liner that are supposed to reduce the rotational energy delivered to your brain which makes it "wobble" in your skull. I've had a couple of small spills on it and I can't say if I noticed anything different, but it seems to do its job just fine.

There is some dispute as to how effective MIPS really is. Ultimately, however, there are some impacts that your helmet can't protect you from (like a neck-spinal injury). So long as you take reasonable measures (like wearing a properly fitted helmet and wearing a neck brace for DH/Park), you are probably doing as much as can be reasonably expected.

Surprised so few people ride with a mouth guard

Many people find mouth guards annoying if they have to be worn for any prolonged length of time.

Any car salesmen here?

What kind of car? You can buy a new 2016 Honda CRV LX AWD for less than $30k (before taxes and fees).

The decline of forums

I am just hopeful that the robots will be able to ride bikes, play video games and chit chat here all day - just be better at it than us.

Possibly make for better conversation? Def make for less bike wrecks

Yeah, robot Stravas are No-Fair!

and that's about it. only mad people expect some kind of conversation there. which brings us back to forums ;)

Just don't forget to give everything a thumb's down on YouTube when you are done. C'mon folks - one small step to making everything about the Internet suck.

Oroville Dam.

You guys have it all wrong. The republicans said they were going to get rid of the dam that Truman built because he was a Democrat. The problem was that they didn't have anything to replace the dam with.

And nobody gave a Dam?

The dams going to be fine, I think it's hilarious that all the californians who wanted to split are begging for federal aid now.

Maybe California will get back some of the $405,851,295,000 (that's about $406 billion) in federal taxes they sent to DC last year.

Oroville Dam.

You make no sense.

It would have taken 2 or 3 seconds more to name the reservoir and both towns in that one sentence news spot she delivered. CBC couldn't pull that together before going to air?

I hope they have the good sense to capture some of that run-off downstream before it goes in the chuck.

Dude, just be happy she didn't say "this is happening right now in the United States, which are in America."

I got a sister north of bay area wanted to throw a shoe at Wendy Measly last night on the National said "reservoir gonna' overflow two towns evacuated" but didn't name them!
Thanks for no return on my tax $ CBC.
:rolleyes:

That's the quality of US news reporting when you steal Canadian-taxpayer funded TV from across the border. We need a big, beautiful wall!

Highway 1 / Lower Lynn Improvements - Public Info Sessions

dude c'mon, you're not supposed to post trail directions on the board.

Its OK, the trail has since been decommissioned. Monica and Hazen Colbert successfully petitioned Council to have all trailwork and maintenance stopped on the Lillooet Cattle Trail 1878.

Isn't that the issue with all renewables? How do you store the energy you don't immediately need for future use // how do you power sh*t in down times?

Google is your friend:

back in the day there wasn't a hyway
