  • Your ass is glass

    I'm sure a few of you are farmiliar with the guy who stands on the corner of Almon and Robie selling random junk. I passed this asshole the other night as he was moving his shit, and about every 5 seconds he'd drop a crate of glassware, leaving piles of

  • Little Deaf Bald guy on the 51 Burnside

    I am sick and tired of your behaviour, your a full grown man with no social skills, yes i relize you can not hear 100% but that is not an excuse your you pushing people to be the first person on the bus or to have your specific seat on the bus. The way y
  • I really don't like Ellen Page

    Yes, I finally said it: I really don't like Ellen Page! She's annoying and not nearly as funny or cool as most people say she is. Really overrated, and those quirky little sayings she says aren't that unique or clever or funny either... especially in J

  • Worse than Bad

    Know what's worse than letting your dog crap and not picking it up? Picking it up and then throwing the plastic bag on the side of the road. At least when it's out of the bad it has a chance to get washed away after a while. Your poop-soup bags will b

  • The Coast

    Is there a bundle of THE COAST's feature stories?I mean, I would want to get one, if it is free.I learned a lot from it. It is mind boggling how Community Services can take children away for no reasons, drugged, and give up on them.

  • Bobby Who?

    Why is it that people can go to the moon, but nobody can come up with a better model for the standard bobby-pin? The plastic on the ends fall off after a few uses, and then I'm left with a goddamned sharp metal tip that feels like knives being jabbed

  • Unfair

    I was born a female, my mom was born a female, my grandma was born a female and so on.Being female has a lot of positives, but one of the negatives is menstruation. For generations, females have had to either make or buy their sanitary pads.I understa
  • Fuck you grey cubicle

    It seems the corporate way is to downsize and herd us into cubicles. Attach your headset and develop soul cancer. I had ideas once, and I know they didn't look like this.

  • Lower the Freak Flag

    Last weeks cover was the best you guys have ever had (Anne of PEI), and I don't even like the artist's style. Which made this weeks cover a stark contrast(dark too, you can barely see any of the image on the print version) what with that trio of ladies f

  • Smelly as Shit Dude in the Elevator

    Enough about smoking outside already. It isn't a tenth as offensive as being stuck in an elevator with a dude drenched in whore lure (aftershave). You could almost see the waves of stink surrounding him like a fucking halo. You might entice Pepe LePew
  • appalled

    Reality TV...loud music blaring from people's headphones...loud cell-phone conversations in public places...conversations held at the top of the lungs...Remember when people kept things private? When did we start to believe that everybody else wants to
  • Move it or lose it!

    Why is it that when a bus has no seats available, people insist on crowding at the front of the bus instead of moving to the back to make more room for people that have yet to get on. It's not like they put those "Move to rear, use rear door" signs up in
  • Pushed to the brink

    Hey Cab companies; go take a flying fuck. Every night after the bar I call you, tell you my name and where I am, and then your disgruntled dispatchers hang up on me mid-sentance as I ask how long I should expect to wait. On the oft chance you don't hang

    It seems like we have come a long way towards gender equality, but a few things really stick out for me.This if for the bitch that stood me up a few weeks ago, and women who think like her. We had plans to go out for a few drinks. I showed up at the ba
  • Stranger danger

    It's really startin' to bug me how close minded some people are now-a-days. When you and your fiends are walking down the street having a PRIVATE converstion, and some slack-jawed thumb sucker on the street decideds to put his two cents in. I mean, I'm a

  • Take a hint

    I work with you and that's where our relationship begins and ends. What annoys the shit out of me is how you 'tag' along after me or our other co-workers on breaks and lunch without asking whether you can or not. Look, you're a nice guy for a Bible thu
  • Armed Boyscouts Myth

    I've heard a lot of people saying with Hillier retiring, that he transformed the CF from peacekeepers to a fighting force. HELLO?!? The whole point of any military is to be able, in a crude sense, to go kill people and break there stuff if the governmen
