  1. Preseason isn't for setting lines, it's for evaluating players. That said, who knows what Green is going to do until he sets the opening roster.
  2. If morning skate lines hold true it should be fun to watch the 2nd line, 4th line, and defense, tonight as players fight for a spot.
  3. Your parents sound like they're having a nice election evening.
  4. What I'm sure of is that I'm going to fall asleep to the the thought of Jamie Lee Curtis' sugarplums dancing in my head. Goodnight y'all.
  5. NDP also has to raise money to stay afloat. If there's a no confidence election in a year or 2 they're in trouble.
  6. Bruh, the way BC rolled out the electoral reform referendum in 2018 was criminal. I consider myself an educated person, but that was purposely diluted to dissuade any vote other than "keep the current system". No choice was good.
  7. In your hypothetical, the NDP, Greens, and Liberals would form a government that would crush the Conservatives 10/10 times. Once the BQ and PPC align with the Cons we'd be no better off than our 2 party dip$&!#s to the south. Yay! More tribalism! I prefer parliament to that alternative, even if it means an 8 year swing of Conservative governing 4 years from now.
  8. So, I know we were joking about disbanding parties, but if these Nationalist clowns are going to be gaining numbers like other countries seem to observe it'd be better to have them splitting the right for anyone wanting a Lib/NDP/Green leadership over the Cons. I doubt highly they'll ever be a major party in Canada, but I also never thought we'd see a buncha wanks storm the Capitol, so... edit: just re-read your comment and I think we're saying the same thing
  9. I don't think the Green Party had much of any effect on any of the party platforms, I mean, they don't have that many voters, it's just the general hope of dispersed Canadian people that pushed for climate platitudes from party leaders. No party has effectively tackled climate change so... we're probably still effed. PPC are a buncha clowns, but that right wing wacky still has a lot of Trumpian sway up here for some reason.
  10. You're not wrong, and the NDP should push their agenda given their seat count, but they could barely afford this election so anything approaching a no confidence could hurt them more than the big 2.
  11. I'm an NDP voter, but you're asking a lot there... like "gimme another Linden" type of wish.
  12. I'm using that one as well as the CBC Youtube stream (on mute as I watch MNF)
  13. There's something exceptionally Canadian about casting a vote in a Federal Election and grabbing Viet take-out afterwards... and the delicious take-out took a few minutes longer than the vote. *than the vote
  14. Any fish sauce fans here? Red Boat is the best one I've found locally, but I just learned that people say salted fermented fish sauce will actually go bad after a year if opened.   


    I go through it pretty quick, but I'm very curious how since I [falsely?] have been telling people delicious salty rotten can't get more rotten.

      Jimmy, 88 Supermarket was one for sure years ago. In the past I bought it in Seattle at Pike Place and then after trying it I bought a case on Amazon. This weekend I might head out on the hunt and can let you know what I find. There's also a Filipina market on Kingsway and Fraser I think that I saw it in, but that was a year ago too.  


      Yes Phil, such a killer addition to wings. Most of the local brands are 3 crab, 5 crab, or Lucky, and to be honest they do in a pinch, but... yeah, there are better ones around that don't make it to Canada. Save for Red Boat which is decent.  


      Quick tidbit about a question nobody asked: Thai fish sauce is lighter and milder than Viet fish sauce. 


      Tidbit #2: having explored Vietnam one thing is abundantly clear... they treat fish sauce like the French treat wine. Locals think their regional sauce is the best, and there are definite flavour profile changes if you sample from 1 to the next. Oh, and none of the good stuff is exported, so in that sense it's even stingier than French wine.  


      Newbie: hit me with a deep fried fish head and a bowl of rice, or pluck the crispy meat off and place it on a reduced fish broth with all the fixins and I'm down.

      you never know where you might find little food gems. I remember I bought a bag of broken rice in a tiny market in Saskatoon, probably 20 years ago and I still remember how good it was.

      Tiny markets are where it's at. Always the first thing I hit in a new city/town/villiage, and if I won the lottery I'd hit as many as I could eating all along the way.

  15. Hey, butthead, you said the Habs fluked out and didn't deserve to be in the Finals. I said they did deserve to be there based on goaltending and defensive play. What's so hard about this? Hey, keep dredging up old $&!# if it makes you feel better though.
  16. Most unfair assessment ever. Doesn't matter what happens in the Finals as the Habs D shut the hell down for 3 rounds with Price [mostly] picking up the slack combining with just enough offense to win out. They deserve to be where they are more than the losers that lost to them.

    Bathroom tiles and sink are hot to the touch.  


    Why did I move into the top floor of a greenhouse a year ago.

      Ah but in the winter, you will be the one laughing!:P


      (sorry friend, that's all I got at the moment while sweating to death at 5AM in the morning).

  18. Canadian team in the Finals and a Mon Wed Fri Mon Wed Fri schedule.  


    Imagine no Saturday night Finals games. 


    Bush league.

      Oh, I guess there will be no champagne drinking on Saturday. That's kind of a bummer.

      And 5PM starts for those of us on the west coast. I can't even watch a single game in its entirety live.

  19. Don't you just hate it when you're about to make dashi but are out of kombu and bonito flakes? At least the NHL had some sense to headline us today; that should calm me down.
