Re: “You mean, passing lanes have a purpose?

The drive from Truro to Halifax has become increasing frustrating over the years. Everyone in the left lane drives 100 and all the people in the passing lane do 130+ and ride your ass if you're doing any less. I actually hate the latter more so...

Re: “Trends A La Carte

It's called a trend for a reason. Remember when everyone use to plaid shirts, torn jeans, and doc martens? Or perhaps tight jeans, big hair, and shoulder pads while they played their Pacman video games at the local arcade? Substitute these with Blundstones, overpriced burgers, and big beards and you have your answer.

Re: “Dry Skin

Are you sure it's not psoriasis? It can be aggravated by dry conditions, but won't be treated with simple moisturizing lotion. The only reason I mention it is because it is prone to develop near your joints as you've mentioned and is often mistaken for dry skin.

I hear oatmeal baths work well, but if it is psoriasis you may want to see a dermatologist or, at the very least, get some prescription cream from you doc at the walk-in clinic.

Re: “Cut the crap about “young professionals,” and start getting real about opportunity

"Most of us are deeply in debt, an odious obligation incurred when we purchased the university credentials we thought would lead us to middle-class jobs."

I think this is one of the major problem for young professionals. They go to university/college with their focus solely set on getting a degree and not on the opportunities that the degree will give them. The job market may well be a hard fought ever-changing 'war zone', but that means you need to show up to battle with the weapons that give you the best chance to survive. $40K can give you an arsenal of weapons or a pre-cooked grenade depending on the choices you make regarding your degree. All too often people don't realize this until it blows up in their face.

Re: “Speeding Ticket

I understand the law is absolute, but the cops basically set up in these exact positions to catch people going 10 km/h for quick tickets (cash grab). How many times have you seen a cop sit at the bottom of Joe Howe Dr. by the rotary catching car after car going 60 km/h? It's a 4 lane road going downhill with little to no cross traffic, so it's very easy to sneak to 60 km/h yet I've seen next to no accidents there.

From what OP is explaining this guy was probably sitting just past the 80 km/h sign waiting for someone to do just as he did.

Anyway, I'm personally just tired of the 'well you broke the law, dumbass, so you deserve it' mentality. I'd be pissed if I got a ticket for going 10 km/h over (unless it was a school zone or military base) and it wouldn't prevent anything since it's so easily done. He could have sat there all day and ticket person after person... is he really helping anybody?

Re: “Speeding Ticket

Yeah, fuck that noise. The worst is you'll have to pay a premium on your insurance now too for a moving violation. Fucking cash grab from all sides.

Re: “Snow days

Haha, a bitch one week about someone who is forced to go into work/school who doesn't feel safe driving and a bitch the next week telling the same people to stay home because they shouldn't be driving.
