Re: 2018 F1 thread.

He had a new engine in the fastest car on the grid, he should do well. But I guess that doesn't explain Bottas shitting the bed frequently.

Re: 2018 F1 thread.

Glad to see Ferrari grabbing a bigger hold of third place in the constructor's standings. Let's hope they can keep it.

They should bring Kimi onto the podium after his last race in Abu Dhabi.

Re: first world problems

So much rain my back yard is like a swamp. It's wetter than a nun doing squats in a cucumber patch.

Re: Remembrance Day?

Good to see a nice turn out at our local cenotaph today. Also good to see young families in attendance. Lest we forget.

Re: High prices?

Tungsten, can you explain to us how & why socialism in the Scandinavian countries works so well? There are rich folks over there too, but I don't think them acquiring their wealth is bad for the state. Unlike Bezos.

Re: Climate Change - so I'm starting to panic a bit

I think I recall reading that styrofoam doesn't take that much energy to produce. Maybe that is part of the problem.

If there wasn't a market for all that junk, it would not have to be shipped.

Holy smokes, this guy tells it like it is! Gotta hand it to him for being honest & speaking his mind. He tried to run a legit business & got shit on (literally).

Yeah, he tells a fair job of what's happening and it sucks. Although, he has no idea why. When he makes a comment like; "The homeless need to leave. Period." he doesn't realize that he is part of the problem. Comments like that may come from frustration and anger, but they also come from privilege and entitlement. What's happening in the DTES is not a "them" problem, it's a medical problem, it's a social problem and it's a societal problem. We are all responsible.

I don't understand how it's his fault. Dude is trying to run a business legit. He faces obstacles while running that business, so many that he finally has to throw in the towel. I don't see how he is privileged or entitled. We need people like him, small business owners who are willing to take a risk to make a buck. He's a taxpayer, which is more than can be said for the freaks he had to deal with. I don't know the solution for dealing with the homeless & drug freaks but there has to be one. Anyone who has a job, goes to work, pays taxes, obeys the law & stays outta trouble is not part of the problem. They are providing a tax base from which comes money (funding) to deal with issues like the ones he faced.

That is depressing. So I guess that graph would represent cod catches in international waters? Dumb question.

I have been to the maritimes & it is very nice there. Real down to earth people, very friendly. Rugged scenery & a lot of history to see & visit.

Re: The NSMB Random Joke Thread

I went to the dentist the other day. He said "You need a crown". I replied "Finally. Somebody who understands me!"

Put on a clean pair of socks, walk into the kitchen & step in something sticky.

Bring it on. The more snow rides, the better.
