  1. Buddy up with one of your karp and go for a quick 239 km walk. Simple
  2. I live in a land devoid of mountains, where the "lakes" are glorified puddles. The Magikarp are scarce here
  3. Now the big dilemma: walk a Pidgey for quick and easy evolves to gain xp, or grind it out with Magikarp to eventually evolve a Gyarados
  4. I caught a Seaking a couple days ago, and I haven't even seen a Goldeen nearby. At 962 cp it's the burliest Pokemon that I've caught (not counting the ones I evolved)
  5. The world already survived with George Dubya at the helm of the US; it can survive the reign of a brain damaged Clinton.
  6. I've recently gotten into Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Book 5 begins tonight. I'm honestly a little ashamed that I haven't delved into this series before now, it is something of a standard in the fantasy genre. So far I've really enjoyed it; possibly a little over-hyped, but still a really solid read. Out of curiosity, has anyone read anything by Brent Weeks other than the Night Angel trilogy? That was the last series of books I read that I couldn't put down, I'm wondering if he has anything else out that compares.
  7. I can't even connect to the server right now. This is going to make it much harder to catch 'em all.
  8. I'm not sure what you're "biting off," but it definitely isn't a canker sore. Cankers are little pits of raw pain. You'd have to bite off a good chunk of gum or tongue to get rid of it which would just leave you with a bigger pit of pain.
  9. I get them occasionally... Maybe one or two per year. Getting that many each month seems excessive. i tried the saltwater thing before and can't handle the taste so I ditched the water and go with straight salt. Put a bit on a teaspoon and cover that nasty critter. No idea if this actual has any benefits but I like to think that if I torture the offending sore enough it will hesitate to come back.
  10. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/07/12/upshot/surprising-new-evidence-shows-bias-in-police-use-of-force-but-not-in-shootings.html The link is to a pretty interesting article about a study done by a Harvard professor who did some 3000 hours of research on police incidents to see if black/white bias exists. His findings in a nutshell was that more often black suspects were treated roughly (handcuffed, pushed against wall etc.) but when it came to more serious force (taser or gun) police were actually more likely to use this elevated level of force against a white suspect.
  11. How dare they enforce laws, especially the ones that prevent accidents and injuries
  12. I'm going to jump in here as the Devil's advocate: check out some of the more popular USA cities. San Jose, NY city, Washington DC... They all have obscene housing prices. They are in a very similar position as Van/Toronto, with young people being unable to afford to buy. High housing prices are a result of a growing city with a strong economy. This issue isn't Canada wide. Other cities; even decent sized cities like Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal; are much more affordable.
  13. You won't see me defending politicians... Too many bad apples in that group. Out of curiosity, is it taxation in general or the misappropriation of tax generated funds that you are against?
  14. Privacy tends to end right around the time criminal activity begins. Did this list hit a bit too close to home?
  15. I really enjoy the genre of "tinfoil hat conspiracy documentary." It doesn't matter if it's aliens, government conspiracy, secret organizations who run the world, mythical creatures who actually exist... These shows are my weakness.
