The stupid, it burns!!!
Okay everyone say it with me,
OB you're a fool!
The Captain is pretty sure it's not the money they're in it for, but this...
Some fun facts for you...
- The Earths crust floats on top of the Mantle. Which is basically rock under intense pressure and heat making it almost liquid (kinda like raspberry jam, but really really hot)
- Because it's moving (movement caused by the rotation of the Earth, the pull of the Moon, and convection currents in the Mantle) pieces of the crust are constantly hitting or grinding against one another. This is what causes earthquakes, sink holes, and can create volcanoes.
- Through this movement mountains are created when plates push against one another, as well as 'fault lines' when they move away from each other.
- This continuous movement is what buries fossils and oil deposits several kilometers below the surface. Did you know that the prairies used to be a sea floor? Did you know Antarctica used to be tropical rainforests? That was before tectonic action shifted the continents around.
Thankfully we can prove all of this through scientific observation so no one ends up thinking a bunch of wizards did it.
People like you should never been allowed into the real world. Go back to school or throw yourself overboard.
Why would you regret being pissed off for being pushed out the door when you were already leaving?
This 'friend' sounds like a real dick mitten.
I think it should be compulsory for cyclists to carry organ donor cards, gotta harvest the organs somehow.
Gore's carbon footprint is almost as large as his arse.
I put more credence in Super Dave Osborne than that lovely couple Messrs Suzuki and Gore.
Just because someone has something to gain or gains something from a message like this, doesn't make it any less possible. Might make them hypocrites, sure, but it doesn't mean they're wrong.
But yes, ask questions. Always ask questions. That I can agree with.
I didn't stop reading but I did roll my eyes at "establishment".
my question is why isn't the pick up spot near a bus stop - having just had ankle surgery the location puzzles me - why can't I take metro transit to get to the airport bus?
Pretty sure they're talking about the other side of the street...
the 'shoppes' side. I've seen it many times before, though I have been subjected to bus-ification for a while now.
I hate the dewsh-nozzels who leave early to go through the hamster trail to the CIBC building just to get a seat. If people can do that willingly, the fucking stops are way too close to each other. I only succumb to that jack-assery when it's a snow storm...
and if you wonder why, you have no idea the bullshit I've been forced to put up with when everyone decides they want to take the bus home at the exact same time in a blizzard.
I'd only do that because I've seen my potential 4 routes at 7 prospective buses an hour sail by for 90 straight minutes because they physically couldn't fit anyone else on any of them.
I stopped reading after I read "establishment."
I know the guy who drives it, they've always allowed luggage.
I don't think it's a coincidence that 3.6 Billion goes missing at the same time we're finding out that Mike Puffy spent the last election eating and drinking on the public dime.
I don't give a fuck if it is just a "few bad apples" - DISBAND THE SENATE!
Taking the fall for the sponsorship scandal...
National public outcry of 14 million which is pennies compared to fascist harper.
I refuse to capitalize his stupid name.

The reference to forced abortions for young women was "Captain's" point, not mine. My point throughout the debate related to the morality of abortion itself and was based on the claim that the moral principle - that of the "sanctity of human life" - ruled out all abortions of whatever sort at whatever stage of development.
This, of course, is not a currently popular position. The moral principle serves to reject the claim, which you obviously support, that "every person should have the right to do with their life and their body as they choose." Now your use of the word "ought" implies a moral injunction. It is a universal moral command, but on what ultimate grounds is it made?
In response I would say that this right to choose does not extend to the living human fetus which, in effect, is NOT part of their body and so their right to do with it as they choose is overturned. Freedom of choice, which I take to be your baseline moral principle, does not extend to the extinction of human life.
My further point was related to the popular inability to even recognize a moral domension which transcends individual freedom of choice. It is not that people recognize the moral domain and then reject it but - so ingrained is this current egocentrical view- that they are unable even to recognize its existence.
As I have recently stated, the recognition of this moral domain is not religiously inspired. Rather, it is the result of philosophical reflection into the nature of morality itself, the recognition both that morality is open to rational scrutiny and that the buck must stop somewhere - in this case, with the principle of the "sanctity of human life."
A pleasure as always.
Yay, lanky lady!
Welcome to insurmountable debt!
I treat the talking heads of the environmental movement with the same respect I reserve for televangelists. Sift away the hyberbole, hysteria and horsehit and there might be a kernel of common sense. (Be nice to each other/ be nice to the world)And any credibility Suzuki might have possessed disappeared like a puff of baked methane one Sunday morning when I saw him castigating Canadians for not being willing enough to make sacrifices to meet Kyoto standards. Then I flipped channels and saw him singing the praises of Australia and how he likes to go there every year. Oh. Really? And how do you make the journey, Doctor? Hang glider? Bicycle with floats attached? Balsa wood raft?
But none of this alters the fact that you come off like a king-cock whackadoo, trumpeting pseudo-scientific malarkey and critical thinking while proclaiming yourself a messiah. Well, I didn't vote for you, so sod off.
*Disclaimer: I know I'm mixing Monty Python metaphors. Sue me, it's Friday.
I realize that and said so - majority of the time - not all the time mind you. I was also referring to being artisitc in a much broader sense. The bitch was about theatre, your response is about musicians and judging by the regular barbs here about "barista" NSCAD graduates, I'm not alone in my observation. I just said it more directly.
