Calf.
And today it's still being a sore fucker though it didn't cramp again.
And now the other leg acts like it wants to ?

Something must be wrong with me, since I feel generally like shit (deja vu) the last few days. Legs, arms, head, throat...

I doubt it's dehydration, since I've been drinking a lot. BAH. :peeved:

Hm. Have you checked your dick for cancer?

Dick cancer is insidious, and causes all sorts of maladies.

People are fucking illiterate.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/donald-j ... -1.4199928

The article is pretty much irrelevant. The comments section is what kills me. At the time of me posting this, the majority of posts on that article are from people bitching at the CBC for "posting right wing/Breitbart-ish news" type shit. These idiots can't even detect sarcasm when it's just smashing them over the head.

We really need to stop letting people out of high school until they've proven that they can read and actually understand what it is that they read.

CBC should be de-funded. Why we are all beholden in this country to have our scarce tax dollars go to a media outlet is a complete mystery.

CBC actually has a whole series of ongoing shit called "revenge of the comment section".
They are trying to trolls the trolls in this article, but I guess being witty makes little impact on humourless internet cadres fight endless flame wars over everything.

Spoken like a typical anti-Canadian Con; hate for the CBC because someone might actually have to give up a can of Budweiser per year so Canadians can watch something from this country's culture, instead of the Stars-and-Stripes muck you prefer.

That's their real problem with the CBC. The yearly subsidy to the pil industry by the federal government is more than the CBC budget; the cost overrun on the F35's alone was like the entire CBC budget for 10 years. Harper spent more government money advertising for the Conservative party than the entire CBC News budget. But oh, the Con-men do cry out that we need to penny-pinch by deleting the CBC.

And don't pipe up about letting private media in this country take the reins. Most of what they show is American, and if it weren't for Canadian content rules they have to follow (which your kind also want to get rid of) they would gladly produce nothing Canadian at all. Not that the comment sections on their websites aren't also full of cranks and propaganda bots.

A nice little paradox - cuckservatives go around braying about screening people for "Canadian" values, but if you try to actually put anything actually Canadian in front of them, they hiss at it like a vampire struck by sunlight.

I am not "anti-Canadian", I just abhor tax dollars handed to people just because they are Canadian. Especially in this day and age with internet content streaming, etc. It's also a reason why radio stations in Canada seem to be awesome for their first year then completely change formats and turn to shit (hint - it has something to do with being forced to increase their "Can-con" ratio if they keep the same format).

I also think it's a crime that wealthy Canadian "artists" like Nickelback and Celine Dion still receive Canadian artist grants. How the hell is that a constructive use of our tax money while we're running deficits?

And in my opinion, most of Canada's best content has nothing to do with CBC. In fact, there are tons of examples of Canadian shows and artists who broke it big in the Canada (sometimes the USA first) without CBC involvement (Rush and Trailer Park Boys come immediately to mind).

If "art" is good, it thrives. Government gifts simply breed laziness. And having a national broadcaster collect tax money to do what they do is not valuable in my opinion.

Eh, I don't buy it. I'm prepared to be wrong - you're far more educated than me, Jebus - but I foresee a world in which automation has eliminated most jobs, and government handouts will be necessary for people to not starve to death. We labor under this delusion that if we work real hard we can all be managers. But that will never happen. The way things are, most people HAVE to lose.


Like you could say that the unions will never let automation destroy that many jobs, but history has proven that over time the unions will always lose. I think socialistic policies will be increasingly necessary for that reason.


Don't get it twisted though, I don't hate you because you're a conservative, Jebus. Nor am I so haughty that I think it's impossible for me to be dead wrong about this, but my views aren't born of laziness, or a desire for free money. It just seems like we're going to have to rely on each other more and more as time goes on.

Canada doesn't have food stamps.

Canada does, however, use tax dollars to provide funds for struggling Canadian artists like Neil Young, Celine Dion, Nickelback, and Michael Buble.

I don't think you're wrong, actually. But we're not talking about the same thing.

I am not referring to welfare or social assistance. What I protest is that the Canadian government literally uses tax money to give to people who produce "art", then legislated that all broadcasters need to play at least 40% of their content from Canadian artists. They do this because they have an inferiority complex of American artists or something.

I believe art thrives on restriction, and I strongly believe that most Canadian "artists" who take this money just fuck around with it. Good art is made because the artists believe it's good - not because they know they can get a sweet government grant if they create something (which is the current case). Hell, I know some professional musicians who do that, then get their music (which they recorded the night before) played on Canadian radio just so the station can fulfill it's 40% Canadian content legal obligation.

This isn't even a political position - this system is retarded.

Well, I can't shit on that. Honestly I think it's kind of stupid too, but I never say anything about it because America has a cultural monopoly on basically the entire world. I'm ready for something else.

So update on the record collection accident, I've resleeved every single one and after more cleaning and drying there are really only 5 LPs *all gatefolds* you can tell have had some water damage. It's much less worse then originally thought but fuck.

Trust me, you do not. Aside from the Alpha-gal (red meat) allergy, you can also get Ehrlichiosis and/or Southern Tick Associated Rash Illness (STARI).

I'm just glad my pooch has her flea and tick medication for the year. I live in an area where ticks could certainly thrive, so the little lady needs to have her protection.

Excellent. Ticks are nasty little bastards, no matter the species. The Lone Star ones have already been found around the GTA, and of course we have the Black-Legged Deer ticks already. Those are the ones that carry Lyme disease. They can also cause Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis, and anemia (from all the blood sucking).

That was the only time that a vet cost surprised me. I nearly hit the floor when they handed me the bill for the tick & flea meds :lol:

Yeah, vet bills can be pretty costly. Believe me though when I say almost all of it is justified. The vet clinic has to cover a shit ton of costs. Ordering all of the meds and supplies gets pretty expensive. They have to make profit where they can. Just imagine how much it would cost if we had to pay for our own healthcare. :o
