    Tokyo Olympics

    I mean, Usain Bolt had a season best time of 9.95 the year he retired in 2017. So I'm not really sure how you expect him to beat DeGrasse's 9.89 4 years later at age 34.

    Tokyo Olympics

    It's unfortunate what is happening in Japan. But from what I've read it seems the current spike of cases is completely unrelated to the olympics. The Olympians are probably the most tested group of people in the most secure bubble, (however porous it might be) of any community in Japan.
  3. Yes, I’m not trying to deflect blame for the Residential Schools from Canada to Britain: they were created by politicians in Canada. I’m just pointing out that Canada was an integral part of the British Empire, which kind of did try to take over the world. Canadian Citizenship did not exist until 1947. Until then residents of Canada were either British subjects (issued with British passports) or non-subjects.
  4. Well, in the period most of the people in the unmarked graves were buried and until the Statute of Westminster of 1931 Canada was an integral part of the British Empire with its trade policies and foreign relations largely mandated from London. And the British Empire at that time was much larger than Nazi Germany at the peak of its conquests.
  5. Remember that is a joke...from more than 20 years ago. Society has changed a bit since then. I'm pretty sure you could find some poor white guys who would be fine with becoming a black star comedian/actor for $60 million. Interestingly, there has been a rash of white women pretending to be black in academia in the last 10 years or so.
  6. The point is that increasing violence and militancy would probably hurt Indigenous people more than than white people, on average. Who is affected by burning down churches on reserves? Mainly the Indigenous people who attend those churches. If there is an escalating tit-for-tat of totem pole burnings for statue tear downs, the Indigenous are at a numbers disadvantage: The most $&!#ty, racist 10% of white people in Canada outnumber the entire Indigenous population, most of whom are sensible, peaceful people who want restorative justice to be achieved peacefully and for better
  7. General Mark Milley is actually the type of Alpha Male that Trump, Gaetz and Co. pretend to be. Sound like he's also got a brain.
  8. What kind of documentation is being provided to people who receive their 2nd vaccination? Surely if only people with this documentation are admitted there should be no real need to limit ticket sales.
  9. Returning to play after this after age 45, when already dealing with health issues, is very unlikely.
  10. Read our conversation again and maybe you'll be able to figure it out.
  11. Err, evacuating New York City and environs for an unknown number of months or years would be a little more significant in practical terms I think. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2011/03/does-us-nuclear-emergeny-planning-need-overhaul/
  12. Even if you think technology and safety measures have been developed to a point where accidents are virtually impossible during normal operations, you are not taking into account the possibility of terrorism, government collapse or freak natural disasters. The relative stability of the world order that has existed since the end of WW2 is not guaranteed to continue in the decades or centuries ahead. I'm just not convinced that declaring Nuclear Energy "safe" and building hundreds or thousands more reactors around the world is a good idea.
  13. I'm not completely against Nuclear Energy, but it is not completely safe and has the inherent possibility of catastrophe. Some people estimate the Fukushima cleanup is going to cost close to a trillion dollars in the coming decades. https://cleantechnica.com/2019/04/16/fukushimas-final-costs-will-approach-one-trillion-dollars-just-for-nuclear-disaster/#:~:text=In 2016 the government increased,billion to %24660 billion%2C however. You can build a whole lot of Site-C boondoggles at $16 billion a pop, wind farms, solar roofs, and anything else you can think
