      Guess I was led to believe 27 an hour was not accurate haha I was wondering why nobody was jumping at that job.

    4. Violator


      27 is for drivers 15.75 us for helpers meaning you can move up fast but still

  2. Why is BC so piss poor at any types of adverse weather conditions?

      Does it come with an instruction manual? That's a lot of switches and buttons.. 

    3. Violator


      We'll figure it out

    4. goalie13


      @Coconuts  Who needs a manual?  We'll just watch Red October to see how it's done.  And if that's not enough, I'm sure there's a YouTube video tutorial available.

      Forgot this was even coming out.  Grabbed a copy now; it looks interesting.

    4. Violator


      Him and Stephen brunt make it easy to read feels like an extremely long athletic article.He doesn't seem full of himself which makes him more likeable.

      Scarier than Covid? Or any other disease?

      I like creepy atmosphere better than jump scares or gore. 



  8. Microsoft just bought Zenimax as a huge fallout fan( -76) this is huge for me.

      I'm not sure Minecraft is a great example, as it was available on almost all modern consoles before Microsoft bought Mojang in 2014. It was already established multi-console. May not have any bearing on future IP's.. 


      I'd have preferred they stayed independent like CD Projekt Red, but what do you do 

    3. Dazzle


      This is capitalism at work. We are seeing companies with deep pockets buy out competition. The people who innovated to this point get their payouts. In the meantime, Microsoft "invests" on itself.

      I am not a Fallout player. I play games but I am not a massive gamer. I just compare this with how Telus, Rogers, and Bell work. It's just a bunch of massive companies limiting as much competition as possible, and there is very little willpower to keep this in check.

    4. Violator




      I think it works a little differently for game studios in order to produce tripple a games you need big budgets

      But half a dozen or less people can create really fun games.thats the only issue with gaming these days everyone wants triple a games.Which has turned the the console into a boring medium when it used to be fun.

  9. Bought a magnetic canucks decal for the vehicle.from friday after work till this morning i only parked in two spots now its gone.buncha sobs in this world.

    1. PunjabiCanucks


      sorry to hear that 

    2. -AJ-


      Really sucks. Reminds me of why I'm keen to remove my flag if I'm going to be away from the car for a while.

    3. Violator


      I didnt want the magnet i was looking for the sticker instead.But i could not find it

      Lmao. If I told you, I'd have to kill you.

      Nice to know there's other flyfisherman here. I know @Kryten is one.


      It's important to grow up and learn how to fish like adult. 

    4. Kryten


      Yep, nice to see fly-fishers on the forum.

      As for a spot, I would help you Violator but I’m not familiar with the valley, I’m in the interior (and gearing up for upcoming sedge hatches).

      I didn't go to the dentist until I acutally got dental coverage so about 12 years in between visits.  I had a root canal and 4 cavities and veneers put in, it was something like 10 visits that year.  Actually fell asleep without any drugs during the root canal lol.

      Also is that you in your avatar trying to brush your teeth with your hand?  At least use some toothpaste.

      In a way, a lot of hockey fans are "racist" towards each other.

      Canucks fans hate Flames fans, and vice versus - because of the colours they wear.


      Unless you're an Edmonton "fan" - don't you find the following landmark "offensive"?


      Send in a petition to have it torn down!

    3. NewbieCanuckFan


      @Phil_314  They SHOULD rename the Lady Byng trophy imho.  It just isnt treated with much respect.  Heck, I'm an old fart and had to look up who the heck Lady Byng was.  Unfortunate given that she was a fan of hockey but I think the trophy would have alot more meaning if it was named after someone like Jean Beliveau.  Mr. Class!

    4. King Heffy

      King Heffy

      I'd prefer if trophies were named after players.

  13. With all this social distancing and drinking at home im sure alot of peoples drinking and driving skills are pretty bad.

    1. brilac


      I'm the opposite.  I have not drank since February, and boy do I love champagne! I've been tempted to buy champagne, and then I drink kombucha. 

    2. Violator


      Kombucha is expensive mabye down south its cheaper like everything else.

    3. brilac


      Yeah, I can get it for less than $3.00 for a 16 oz bottle.  I've bought kombucha at Whole Foods in Vancouver for $3 something for a 16 oz / 473 ml bottle.

      move valuable then gold

  15. Got my first dog today.should be interesting

      @Violator It's a good move.  1 night stay at the vet hospital ~ $1,000.  Ultrasound ~ $650.  Feeding tube installed in esophagus ~ $950.  Unscheduled visit at vet hospital ~ $160.  Those are just a few recent examples.  That doesn't account for the meds, fluids and other stuff.  I wish I had taken my own advice and set aside money when he was young.  He's 14 now and I would have had enough money set aside for his recent troubles.  


      Don't get me wrong.  Getting a dog was the best thing we ever did.  And I have zero regrets spending all this money on him.  My only regret is not setting aside money since he was a pup.

    3. Violator


      Yeah i will probably set up a long term savings account for her.Its the smart thing to do especially since you invest so much love and time into her.

    4. brilac


      I had a cat who passed away in December, and I am still paying the bill.  I put it on a cc that has no interest for 6 months.  She  was in the animal hospital for 2 days, and the bill was around $3,400.

      Sad, but still wondering if she was on her phone? 

    3. -DLC-


      Really tragic...what an awful way to go.  May she RIP.



      Just a shame,

      people who loved her are really hurting right now and my heart goes out to them.

      Might want to check the Canada Line at rush hour Ron. Built what little over 10 years ago. 8 am you have to wait 1-2 trains to squeeze on board. If transit is convenient and runs often, it gets used. I've been taking transit more and more lately, because I'm getting sick of spending 90 minutes to 2 hours getting home stuck in traffic.

      What the hell did this devolve into

  19. Havent worked since last tuesday not scheduled for another day yet.What a $&!#ty start to the year

    1. naslund.is.king


      Just bad scheduling or no work?

      Sucks either way

      Hope you get the hours you need

    2. kingofsurrey


      That sucks.  Employers need to make an effort to give workers  regular shifts if at all possible. If its not possible, then good communication is critical / essential.


      Not having work is super stressful and its tough to make plans when you aren't kept in the loop by irresponsible managers...


      Hope you get the call back soon.  In the meantime , try to spend time with those close to you in your life. Do something special with them and tell them how much they mean to you.  Life goes by way too quick.

    3. Violator


      Been like this since i started with them.Really late on the warning if no work the next day i get paid by the hour so no work means no pay.

      The Xmas spirit is about 36 hours long: Xmas eve after work and a full Xmas day and then we return to the me first, me too and me punch!

    3. NewbieCanuckFan


      Word has it a person named "Violator" was taking wagers on the fight.  Hey, somebody might as well profit from someone else's misfortune.

      Hey PB, Oliver Stone was on to this early.


      Remember in the (classic) 1988 Wall St, Gordon Gecko introduces one of his fat brokers as, "The Terminator!"


      Personally feel language & culture started going heavily plastic in the 80's. As everything got supersized, we needed to economize the jargon of the day.

      Also, ban the term "Goldilocks Zone" while we're at it... my head chef uses it excessively, and I'm gonna snap soon!:frantic:
