  1. I can't believe I just read this lol. I was on the road to various locations for nearly 4 hours today, and I can assure you, wherever you drove is far from the norm. Once again, this city has proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's drivers are shocking. The number of people blowing lights out intersections was nothing short of astounding (though expected). It almost had me questioning whether I was even correct about treating said intersections as a 4-way stop lol.
  2. While I agree that's a brutal hit, and something around 6-8 games would be spot on, if we know the NHL, and we do, his suspension won't go longer than the end of the season. No way they suspend him for round 1. Same as Byfuglien.
  3. I'm sorry, but what a cop out. The bystander effect is not an excuse for washing your hands of responsibility. Placing a phone call and tending to a victim isn't much to ask. While your average joe may not be a doctor, 911 dispatchers can provide basic knowledge on how to handle a given situation. I've been first on scene at a few different accidents/incidents and there's a lot to be said for calling for help immediately and providing victims with a calming influence until medical assistance arrives. There's no way to know whether it could have helped this fellow, but 16 minutes of people standing, doing nothing, is &^@#ing disgusting.
  4. I'm sorry but I had to post in response to this. Did you even read the article? The person responsible will be tried and convicted??? They found him...dead already from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Ignorance at its finest right there. Even when the facts are provided some people are too lazy to even get through them. On topic - this is a sad set of circumstances. While I agree that some reform of the policing and/or justice system is in order especially in the States, this does nothing but hurt the cause that the protests have been based around. The right wing will eat this up. Detrimental to everyone involved, especially the families of the two officers.
  5. I would heavily recommend a membrane like Ditra that others have recommended. Stress fractures on basement floors are almost a guarantee due to temperature fluctuation (expansion/contraction) and movement to some degree will probably continue to occur. If your goal is to cover the stress fracture for good, there is a new concrete product called Elephant Armor that is made for the purpose of providing a top coat but also providing huge flexibility that prevents cracks from deflecting through the top coat. I saw a demonstration of it at a supplier I use...pretty amazing stuff. Though, it probably comes at a pretty amazing cost too! I'm on my phone so too much of a hassle to post a clip but google away.
  6. Kass! Great shot. Great power.
  7. That should be a guaranteed suspension. Get your tin foil hats out and wait and see. If he gets 5 and a game, I'll be shocked. Aaaaand he gets 2. Top notch refereeing there.
  8. Totally random. So I googled. The read is good for a laugh (fyi - the Iron Sheik has a foul....keyboard).... http://canucksarmy.com/2013/1/11/strombone1-versus-the_ironsheik
  9. Probably been said a thousand times, but Tortorella's timeout call was the highlight of the game for me. It's very clear he's learned the team and its players, and knows when to smash the right buttons. Good on the boys for taking notice. Nice win.
