  • Youtube Lawsuit

    This is not right.http://tinyurl.com/5ujbna (CNN story)I do not want 12 million books worth of data available to a select group.it's a fight worth fighting, unless you don't care who views your IP address and the data linked to it.
    • Asshole Drivers

      I would like to thank the assholes who cut us off in Dartmouth Crossing last evening (July 7). As you may or may not be aware -- because you are the perfect driver -- the lane we were in was a straight and turning lane asshole! Did you not notice that

  • I Blame Car Drivers

    Thank you to whichever smart fellow threw broken glass on the bridge bike lane, thus forcing me to carry my bicycle the multiple kms back home. I can probably thank one of the many stupid, lazy, self-centred or sadly uninformed car-drivers of our fair ci
  • A simple request to dog owners.

    To the dog owners in the south end who don't clean up after their pets: Please do a better job. I have two dogs that I have out and about each day, I work hard to make sure that nothing is left behind. I have noticed that people aren't cleaning up alon
  • Welfare-It's NOT For Life

    This is for the life long welfare collectors who frequent the establishment I WORK in EVERY DAY. I see you once a month on "cheque day". A few of you are third generation "collectors", family business is it? You get very drunk and blow it all in 48 hours
  • Supporting corporation cafes from now on

    You'd think being a loyal & regular customer for 4 years would earn you respect at a certain cafe in the north end. You are ALWAYS late with my food. I waited 1/2 hour only to find out that you "forgot" the order. This isn't the first time this has happe
  • Phuq Ewe

    Thank you for convincing my girlfriend to dump me. I hope you're happy.
  • I Hate Apartment Hunting

    I'm going back to school in September to start my masters so am looking to find an apartment. I figure that since I'm currently living in the city it wouldn't be too bad to find a place, either a bachelor or someone looking for a roommate. However, it se

    The Oxford Theatre is supposed to be an independant theatre that showcases smaller films and offers an alternative to the massive amounts of shitty Hollywood movies that come to the other theatres in town, but lately all they've been playing are the gian
  • Politician has gas

    This bitch is dedicated to one of Halifax's most famous politicians, who will remain nameless. However, unlike most of the bitches about politicians, this has absolutely nothing to do with politics.I work in a generally nice, not too busy gas station l
  • Blue Tooth Bitch

    To the ignorant bovine on Oxford Street & Quinpool Road yesterday who blew her Jeep's horn repeatedly to change lanes (and using NO signal light to indicate that desire) - if you stopped your fucking jumping jaw for two seconds, you might have clued in t

  • put down the bible and think

    I've had enough of all these right wing, born again, jesus-loves-me-more-than-you-na-na-na-na-boo-boo types. Face it: we live in an open, liberal country where we are not guided by a book only a portion of the population takes as anything more than a wor
  • AIRPORT Renovations Fiasco

    Why are the renovators/builders at Halifax International Airport being allowed to have so little regard for airport users, and for SO LONG? The work on the road has been going on for months. You cannot pick up passengers anywhere near the exits, and dr
  • the order of Canada goes too...

  • discrimination by association

    To the bouncer with the asshole goatee: Did ya get some skin from ANY of the "so called" hotties you let in front of me while waiting patiently in line on Canada Day? I got there a little late and the line up was pretty big. I stood at the back of the
  • a passport doesn't make you better than me

    it's that time of year- schools over and gaggles of overpriveleged students or former students migrate to europe, to drink heavily, see some old stuff, and 'find themselves'. well listen: just becuase I have a job, and can't afford to do that right now,
  • Bouncers

    Can anyone agree with me that the three lowest forms of life in Halifax in order of evolution are homeless people, the squigis, and bouncers.
  • Fuck Halifax

    There is nothing ever going on in this city. I am a Toronto native and I am missing the big city so badly right now. I look through the coast and can never find anything to do, accept for ghost walks. This city is taking the life out of me, can you he
  • Subject: Alien Abduction???

  • No propoganda on licence plates!

    Who came up with the "Canada's Ocean Playground" slogan on licence plates in NS. It's stupid. My plate is saying:"Hey you, driving behind me, just in case you didn't know, I live in a playground in Canada. By the ocean."Other person seeing my plate:
  • Nova Scotia Trend

    So I guess it's a trend now to put your life and the lives of others in danger if you're driving in NS.Yesterday afternoon, on HWY 103, a moron was straddling both lanes of traffic at 90km/hr and not letting anyone pass him. There were 3 cars behind hi
  • I've still got the charger

    Dear "Oooh, a free camera". To the sticky fingered shit who swiped the camera from the Duncan's Cove parking lot. I was gone for less than the equivalent of one Beatles record. I asked the other hikers. I asked your neighbors. I left my number. I'll find
  • Halifax Bars

    Man what's up with Halifax bars? They're going from bad to worse. I saw nothing bust skanks and ho's downtown the other night. I thought by now, with all the criticism they'd clean up, but for some reason they got dirtier and skankier. I'd never touch an

  • Montana's Cookhouse of Lies
