  • Why does downtown Halifax look like a war zone?

    Why does downtown Halifax look like a war zone? Specifically Hollis Street which seems to be perpetually dug-up/in a state of flux. Not to mention the garbage. I mean afterall the seat of our government is located there and one would think that things wo

  • Cover it Up!

    Please, please, please - cover your mouth when you cough! I don't care if it's a smoker's cough and not a cold - I still don't want your germs. I know it's tough because you feel the need to cough every 2 minutes or so, but PLEASE - cover your mouth!
  • Fast F'N Ferries

    I have been listening with half hearted anger to the talk of fast ferry service to bedford, thinking, there is no way the public would fall for it, or allow it to happen.But lo and behold the city council has voted to dole out tax payer money on it. Th
  • The Fake Hug

    I am so sick and tired of having to engage in and witness the fake hug. It's ridiculous.Hey person I just met at a party last weekend: Don't fake hug me when we run into each other on the street. I know you're trying to look cool with your buddies b
  • OK, who let the stupid people out?

    Fuckin' jaywalkers. Two of 'em on Gottingen between Cornwallis and North, just wandering out into traffic. Then some stupid lazy fuck staggering across the toll plaza on the Macdonald. Lazy because the crosswalk is TEN FUCKING FEET AWAY!!!

  • Move, bitch. Get out the way.

    I understand that an empty seat on the bus is an available seat, so i politely moved my bags onto my lap this morning when you needed to sit. But minutes later when the bus cleared out, and we were surrounded by vacant seats, your fat ass stayed parked n
  • I gotta take a DUUUUUMMMMMPPPPPP!

    What the fuck is with guys in public washrooms who use the only toilets available to piss, instead of urinals? Bathroom stalls in men's washrooms should be strictly for dumping, especially if they are the only ones available!I fucking hate it when I g
  • men!

    What is it with Halifax men? It seems like none of you want a committed relationship these days.. you want to just be "friends only".. one of these days you're going to wake up alone and realize that not every girl is willing to sleep with someone who ju
  • bad manners are bad

    This is directed at the dumb blond bitch at the Joel Plaskett show on Saturday. You decided to move in on the space I was trying to save for my friend, and when he came back I asked you politely to move over a bit, so he could make his way back into the
  • Cranky Haligonians

    Seriously, I've never seen such a mass population of whiners and complainers. I didn't know a town full of rednecks could be so damn cranky. Get your thumbs out of your ass, stop bitching and go outside and play.

    To the fucking clueless drunk who decided our front hallway was the perfect place to drop a grand slam: next time you decide to get so fucking drunk you can't contain either your stomach or your bowels, please, DON'T! At the very least you could have gon
  • Dear Neptune, what the fuck...?

    Disney's High School Musical? Is that an artistic expression worthy to be at Neptune? Are the majority of your subcribers 13 year old girls? You continue to alienate the artistic community with this Disney cash cow. High School Musical is a movie, ice sh

  • Labelling system needed

    How many times have I spent money and time on some woman, finally gotten her into bed, only to find she's one of those that needs "extra help" to finish, if you know what I mean. If I don't go down there and put in some extra work beyond the usual call

  • You've left a lasting impression

    When I was leaving the Halifax Shopping Centre you said something to me and I didn't catch what you said so I just smiled and said "Hi". Then you said "FUCK OFF YOU FUCKING FAGGOT". I didn't know what to do so I just left, I walked through the lobby door
  • SUBordinateWAY

    Customer service being the front line promotion for any business is at a loss to you little fella. Me taller, you shorter. I didn't bring it up. Yet, due to your extreme shortness and pea sized briain the first thing you said to me was "man, your nose

    I am FORCED to have a pap test before I am allowed to obtain birth control. Don't get me wrong... I am 100% cool with a gyno shoving an IUD up my vag. But I am frustrated to motherfucking hell at the prospect of being denied BIRTHCONTROL if I refuse t
  • Rude Dal Guy

    To the Dalhousie Engineering student who shoved past me as I was exiting the Sexton gym: When you suddenly sped up towards the door, I thought you were going to open the door for me (since I was about to open it for myself). Instead, you opened it and sh
  • Smoking buses

    I don't know who monitors this but they sure aren't doing their job. At the bus terminals/stops there are signs stating no smoking or else you can be fined. I counted 7 smokers at the bus terminal area near the MaDonald bridge the other day. One of the

  • 15 year olds going on 6 years old.

    To most high school students in the north end: Grow the fuck up.Seriously, I've never seen a larger bunch of students so immature in my life, and I've worked in a school before. You're all treating the city like a playground or, worse yet, as a spitt

  • My boss

    I'd love to know why my boss is such a fucking idiot. All day long, (especially when it isn't busy), he wanders in and out of my office, and most of the time during these (rather frequent) visits, he leans and hoovers over my desk. Not because i need ass

  • Would Dalhousie please stop ignoring the DWC!

    Why is it that Dalhousie ignored their Women's Center and doesn't make an effort to tell students about it? What are they afraid of? I can remember in the end of my first year that I was sick of residence and sick of eating bread because of the serio
  • Snowbank shoes

    To the jerk that picked up my daughters lost shoe and chucked it in the snow bank, thanks so much for your help! When I called out to you and asked you if you had a little shoe in your hand, and you said “Yeah, I’ll just leave it here for you” (and the

  • Expired Expiry Dates

    For crying out loud, how often are expiration dates checked on products in our grocery stores?? Last time I checked, August 2007 comes BEFORE 2008. The majority of these 'out of date' products tend to be in the Health Food Sections and Ethnic Food sectio
  • Taz Records

    How did I not hear until today that Robert Lawrence was shoved out of Taz Records?! He was a great guy to talk records with, and it's a shame their business had to turn sour for him.

  • Hali

    I'm from Toronto. I must say I like the people here in Halifax but unfortunately it seems as if they are as equally brainwashed and indoctrinated as the rest of Canada.
  • Unequality Reigns

    Isn't it funny that women can joke about men and their shortcomings these days but if we say the least funny thing about a woman and/or her gender, then you're lower than ant shit. I feel so bad for men today (yes, I am female) because they're scared to
