  1. So apparently the woman who fell from a balcony and died on wednesday in toronto is very likely someone I went to school with, shame

  2. A retired nurse in town was one of the people working on saving the deceased one for quite awhile, she was in the wreckage which suggests she wasnt able to eject. In the words of a witness living near the airport; "The plane did a barrel roll, and shortly after the barrel roll there was a spark and the pilot ejected".
  3. It was practically just across the river from where I live in town, I've heard reports of one dead and one alive as well, but nothing confirmed as of yet.
  4. Back to work tomorrow after 2 months off...Why can't it be the work time that goes fast instead..

    1. RRypien37


      Just find a job you genuinely joy/have a passion for and neither will be an issue. 

  5. One year, one way 975k deal for Motte to come back, I don't mind that at all.

  6. A gigantic, freshwater reservoir has been discovered beneath the Atlantic Ocean, stretching from Massachusetts to New Jersey, according to a new study. Scientists at Columbia University made the discovery during a multi-year survey of the sub-seafloor off the U.S. Northeast coast. The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports on June 18 says the aquifer stretches from the shore at least from Massachusetts to New Jersey and extends more-or-less continually out about 50 miles to the edge of the continental shelf. If it were on the surface, researchers say it would create a lake covering about 15,000 square miles. “Our data suggest a continuous submarine aquifer system spans at least 350 km of the U.S. Atlantic coast and contains about 2800 km3 of low-salinity groundwater,” the study reads. According to researchers, the aquifer was found trapped in porous sediments lying beneath the ocean.
  7. I put in an offer on hopefully my first place that was for rent...though it seems too good to be true and unlikely to be accepted, but hey who knows, anything can happen.

    1. coastal.view


      so what are you looking for in a rental ?

      what area of town ?

    2. brilac

      Well..after almost a week of waiting, got a response saying they found someone else without even bothering to respond to me. Oh well, that was expected.

      Planning on going anywhere?

    3. PrideInThisTeam


      I plan to stay in, relax and sleep in past 4am for a change, ended up working an hour of OT to end things. And I'm in construction labor @Ghostsof1915

      As long as you're not laid off buddy. Enjoy the time off. Recharge the batteries. 

  9. A Quebec major junior hockey team says one of its players has died, apparently from complications from epilepsy. The Blainville-Boisbriand Armada says Alec Reid, 18, died Sunday morning surrounded by loved ones. Reid had been followed by doctors to treat his epilepsy. He was consulting a neurologist after several recent episodes and had not played since Feb. 19. The right-winger from Mercier, Que., had been acquired from the Drummondville Voltigeurs before the trade deadline and was playing his first season in the QMJHL. He had two goals and three assists in 37 games, 11 of them with the Armada. The team's president expressed condolences to Reid's family and said the team was shocked and devastated by the loss. "Alec was part of the Armada family and the entire organization is in mourning," Mario Marois said in a statement. "All the players, and the hockey, training and administrative personnel are united in offering their most sincere condolences to the members of his family as well as his friends." RIP
  10. Dinner 13 years after last seeing friend and it's like only a day had passed. That's how you know things will never change, was a great night out to catch up :)

    1. NHL'er


      I can't relate. I have no friends. 

    2. Watermelon


      Loool relatable 

    3. Type R

      Type R

      A lot of my buddies are like this, which i'm grateful for as we all became parents at different times, as well as grew up and are career minded, which of course cuts into "bro" time.  Friends like that are timeless, cherish them with a good beer and solid laughs.

  11. 13 years since last seeing a good friend in person and I get a dinner invite to catch up on life..a welcome surprise.

    1. Zoolander


      Never forget the importance of your day 1 homies:) 

      Something I'm learning about right now overseas. 


  12. Nice way to end the work day...spent an hour at last years building after the fire supression system on the top floor busted and flooded 15+ units along with a waterfall down over the decks to the ground below for 20+ mins...

  13. 34 years old and Rick Nash announces his retirement from concussion symptoms..Shame, always liked the guy.

      Sadly another one of those guys who had so much fan fare at one point then faded away into obscurity

      NHL: "Nah headshots aren't a problem". 

    4. Coconuts


      It's a shame he never had a whole lot of support on the NHL squads he played for before injuries caught up with him, especially during his time in Columbus. Almost always had to do the heavy lifting alone when he wasn't playing for Canada.

  14. Just finished watching the season for Titans on a random whim...Some may hate it and some may like it...But I think the dark and evil undertone made it worth a watch despite not being my type

    1. LordCanuck


      doesnt come out in canada till end of january i beleive. on netflix too

    2. PrideInThisTeam


      I havent watched shows on tv in years, always found things online so airing date is never an issue

  15. From getting a cold on sunday to waking up with a probable ear I hate that feeling

    1. Tre Mac

      Tre Mac

      Blast it in the shower with hot water.  I know it's probably the last thing you want to do but it'll relieve the pressure which causes the actual ache.  I get them every year in the winter. 

    2. -AJ-


      Hope you feel better soon, man!

  16. 12 houses in town evacuated cause of fire...aaand the fire season starts..

      Drive-By Body Pierce

      That's what I was guessing, I just left there early this afternoon. 


      Started by lightning I am guessing (and hoping that it wasn't someone doing something stupid)...hopefully rain can help the situation.

    3. Ghostsof1915



      Then the traumatizing one.....



    4. PrideInThisTeam


      Yup, lightning is most likely, they worked on the fire overnight til it was out, being right beside houses and all

    4. stanleysteamersmyl


      There is a feature on Luc soon on the 2nd intermission....Calgary vs Arz.   James Neale playing with Luc at the under 18.  Didn't know that.

  18. I go digging in my drawers and closet this morning looking for something that randomly came to mind...and found a shoe box filled with an 11 year old ipod, empty samsung S3 box and old original xbox controllers randomly...Not sure why I have any of that still...

  19. 12 years of pain, happiness and learning..I've decided to get the girlfriend a ring..time will tell if it's the right decision.

      12yrs and she waited bro !  thats a keeper : D

    3. Wilbur



      12 years is along time to be together so clearly both of you are getting good things out of it even if it isn't all clear skies and roses.  Assuming you already co-habitate, getting married probably won't change much day to day stuff but it's fun to have that ceremony/party at some point.

    4. coastal.view


      what if she says no

      you are making this all about your decision

  20. Watching Altered Carbon while ignoring everything else I watch in the process...Best show I've watched in awhile.

    1. VforVirtanen


      Great show. Binged it in one weekend, and it was a busy weekend. 

    2. HI5


      The acting is soo baddd though

  21. So...One day into my month off work and boss wants me to come back, while withholding all of December's pay to cheat the disability system and just pay it out in January instead..I think I'll pass on that.. >_>

      Doesn't wanna pay the cost to be the boss, eh?

    4. -AJ-


      That's dumb. At least you know you're needed.

  22. Blech..One day weekend since I'm stuck working today cause other people are either sick or don't want to work themselves..

    2. Alflives


      Do you get paid extra for the sixth day?  

    3. PrideInThisTeam


      Pretty sure it's just normal pay. It's all well and good since I said I'm taking monday off to have my 2 day weekend. I can't complain about that then.

  23. Just got offered a chance to go to a Canucks vs Oilers sometime this season..I think that would be a perfect matchup to go and see for my first live game.

    1. Alflives


      In Edmonton or here?  I went to lots of Oiler's v Canucks games in the early to mid 80's, hen the Oilers were at their peak.  Sit down low, if you can, the top guys are just incredible from ice level.  

    2. PrideInThisTeam


      In Van, should be fun either way if it pans out

  24. Found out last night that best friend and her bf were hit by a mercedes on their way back to Ontario from a cross-country trip days after I met up with her..Stranded in Calgary temporarily because of it :\ at least they're alright and it wasnt any worse than a scare mostly.

    1. thejazz97


      Glad to hear they're alright! I had a couple friends who were stranded in the Rockies after their car got sandwiched by semis (thankfully they weren't in it!)

    2. Cramarossa


      Glad to hear your friends are ok! Cars are replaceable, people aren't. 

    3. PrideInThisTeam


      I'm hoping the guy gets charged for it in some way and doesnt get off completely free. Im sure something will happen to him though

  25. All the interesting stuff happens on my days off..police were called on site and arrested somebody who was lurking around and acting funny, had a 6 inch knife in his pocket.

      Probably a good day to miss work, to be honest. One day I called in sick at the university where I work, later that same day they found what appeared to be a fake bomb a couple buildings away from mine :o

    3. PrideInThisTeam


      Now that's a good day to miss work. I'm back in tomorrow so I'm sure I'll get more details than what's been said on the news about it

      if you weren't there, then at least they didn't come for you.
