Re: “Minimum Wage Blues

The Captain has a good point. If you want to live in the south end of Halifax, minimum wage might be insufficient but if you live in industrial Cape Breton where there are many decent houses for under $100k and a decent 1 bedroom apartment rents for $500 or so then the minimum wage doesn't look so bad (assuming you can actually find a job.)

Re: “Spending $10,000 to make $5,000 from me?

Fox said, " from being deliberately and repeatedly short-changed at coffee shops to sly bartenders doing the same thing"

In all my years there has only been once that I had even a suspicion that someone deliberately shortchanged me. It was in a pub back in the 80s or early 90s and I was so shocked by it that it really stuck with me. So, The Fox's claim of "deliberately and repeatedly" in "coffee shops" and by "sly bartenders"? Really? Have any of the other LTWWB irregulars had that same repeated experience?

Re: “Rotten Beeth

^^^ it used to be that almost everyone was encouraged or even expected to go to university - even if they had little interest in what was being taught. A fair number of those folks ended up with nearly useless degrees, working in unrelated jobs, and paying unnecessary student loans. I went to university for a very specific field of study so it worked out for me but I think that a lot of people who go to university would be better served with a community college diploma in a trade or technology.

Re: “"Victims"

My thoughts:
(1). 'a guy has no brains when it comes to his dick'. Most guys get the urge for variety. It's simple biology/hormones. It's not a learned or chosen urge. However, the sensible ones keep it in check. Same goes for a woman in her late thirties who is desperate to have a baby. I know of a number of women who deliberately got themselves impregnated by guys they wouldn't have looked at a few years earlier and sometimes by guys they knew they didn't want to ever live with. It's the power of hormones and the biological clock that many women are subject to. They're powerful forces. I suspect this case is a coming together of the two. She saw him as her last chance. He saw her as an easy mark for a bit of something new. (2). It doesn't matter that they are both "mature" adults. We need to protect people from being exploited by those who have power over them. That's why we need absolute rules against teachers having a relationship with students. There can be no grey area otherwise people in power will exploit the loopholes.

Re: “Halifax has a nasty case of corporate branding

Personally, I don't think very many people take offence to corporate sponsorship of public buildings. Who cares, really, as long as the facility is being well maintained? I'm just happy that the Emera Oval is able to offer free skating for people with families who, otherwise, might not be able to afford much in the line of family outings. And if we put the full cost back on the taxpayer there would be an uproar from people who don't use the oval. So what is the option?

Re: “Finding an assertive lady over 70

I plan to make it through life without ever having sex with anybody's grandmother.
