everyone right of capable-of-empathy is pissed off about the NDP calling an election in a pandemic and the Liberals are using it to try to privatize ICBC. their latest attack ad claims that young people can't afford to drive because it costs five thousand dollars a year in insurance (which it probably does if you have a learner's permit and live in downtown Vancouver and are insuring a brand new car). it definitely doesn't if you live outside of the cores


it 100% is and I have several friends whose quality of life would dramatically improve if we took it back and promoted the Yukon-Alaska Territory to provincehood

welcome, proud new canadian sarah palin.

I've posted this before, but Trump's broad base of support are lifelong losers and this movement gave them something to be a part of for once in their lives and feel like they were winners.

Not sure how long it's going to last post-election but it'll be interesting to see.

i think they'll spin him as a martyr instead of a loser tho

tbh i think a lot of his support is because a number of people have been left behind by policies of all administrations and since they don't actually believe they'll get help, they go with the dude that makes them feel good. i think if trump actually launches a media channel, how popular it becomes will be one indication of where his group goes

Kerrygold is v overrated and the idea that you need to ship butter internationally is one of the most ridiculous parts of the modern food supply chain

if you want good eating (as opposed to cooking/baking) butter, get some local cream, add a dollop of dairy with active cultures, let it sit on the counter for a bit, then make butter.

I don't remember where I read it [watchmen???] but the phrase "nostalgia is appealing specifically because it's false" has become a hell of a lot more relevant to me in the era of making things great again

I mean, do not flush paper towels, but if you're a responsible citizen who has a small (lidded) sanitary waste bin next to your toilet where you can throw away the things you can't flush (like those wet-wipes that cause fatbergs), you have a place to safely deposit the paper towel after use that won't destroy your plumbing.

I moved into my new apartment in September, and there was a very specific clause in my lease prohibiting the installation of any bidets. So I'm wondering what kind of havoc they caused here during the first lockdown/toilet paper shortage.

i wonder if that's even legal. it's certainly not enforceable.
