Re: “We're just trying' to watch a movie, here

The next time you feel someone is being disruptive during the show, you can always report them to an usher. They will take care of it.

Re: “We're just trying' to watch a movie, here

Did you ask them to stop at any point through the 2.5 hour event? That likely would have been more effective at changing behaviours than this post which they will likely not see.

Re: “Can we talk ...

According to demographers the world's population will peak by 2040 or so and then start to decline. The main reason is decreasing birth rates due to urbanization. On the farm children are cheap labour and an asset, in the city they are an expense. The replacement rate in most western countries is around 2.1 births per female but, in Canada for example, the birth rate is around 1.5 per female. What this means for Canada, and other industrialized countries, is that without immigration the population would be in decline and aging rapidly.

Re: “Why bug the panhandlers?

@WesLee as someone who buys Monster energy drinks myself, after taxes I can tell you that's typically how much they cost. And when I see some poor guy with a blanket sleeping in the library during the evening, carrying a full bag of what looks like camping supplies, I've gotta say I highly doubt they're in there just because they stayed up for too long. Either they're a voluntary wandering traveller or they're homeless. And to actually stop and speak to them reveals that it's not just a couple of random people having this problem. I give spare change when I can regardless, but if you can afford cigarettes, energy drinks, pricey attire and accessories and the latest digital tech, I think the need to panhandle may be self-imposed. As for panhandlers who are mentally ill/disabled, it disgusts me that they aren't receiving community support in a society that prides itself on "ending the stigma".

Energy drinks don't cost 4.99, stay in reality JEFF JEFF

Re: “Can we talk ...

It's taboo because it goes against the societal norm of pumping out a bunch of brats before we die, to leave a legacy or carry on some part of yourself (as if anybody would seriously remember us through our children). It always amazes me that the world latches onto silly crap like banning plastic drinking straws and bags, yet having a billion kids is fine, as if they won't grow up driving cars, demanding food production and contributing to a massive carbon footprint. Another problem is that access to contraceptives, legal abortions, voluntary sterilization and adoption are all very complicated or non-existent depending on your country of residence. It's easier to get pregnant and have a kid than it is to have responsible and safe sex when you're not ready for kids or have no desire for kids.

Re: “Downward dog poop

I have bad vision and can't see the ground very well. Nothing pisses me off more than entitled idiots who refuse to be decent and cleaning up after their animal. If you choose to own a dog, it's your responsibility to clean up after it, and it's pure selfishness and laziness to refuse. To everybody in Halifax who makes the effort to clean up after their pets, thank you. The world needs more responsible citizens like you.

There's nothing you can do.

Re: “Why bug the panhandlers?

What I always find amusing (and pretty damned sad) is when I see panhandlers in the city smoking cigarettes, wearing expensive designer headphones, drinking energy drinks that cost $4.99 a can or texting on the latest phone model - while begging for more money. Meanwhile some poor guy with a mental illness or disability living on the street is ignored or harassed most days and literally has to sleep in the public library to keep warm.
