Amuro what's the traffic like in Adelaide? Is the transit good there?

I hear Adelaide is the most conservative of all state capitals, it's full of churches. And apparently your state's AG is the reason there is no M-rating for video games in Australia.

Not sure how big a bonus you got but Air Transat has roundtrip flights to Amsterdam early June for $779 for like 10 days. Go backpack on your own!

just call the police non emergency phone number and leave your report. and ask to be remained anonymous.

Contact the VPD | Vancouver Police Department

Quote:
Examples of Emergency & Non-Emergency Calls

Emergency Examples

Examples of calls to 911 for police:
  • an event that involves an immediate threat to person or property (e.g. screams or shots fired)
  • a substantive in-progress crime (e.g. fight, break and enter or impaired driving; this includes drug dealing if the suspect is on scene)
  • a serious crime that has just occurred (e.g. sexual assault or robbery)
  • a suspicious circumstance that may indicate an immediate criminal act (e.g. prowler, door-to-door salesperson who doesn't have proper identification, vehicle "casing" the neighbourhood)
911 calls within the Greater Vancouver Regional District go directly to the ECOMM central call taking centre.
The use of (604) 717-3321 for all non-emergency reporting helps to keep the 911 lines available for people reporting an emergency situation.
If you are unsure how serious an incident is, call 911 and they will advise whether or not to call the non-emergency number (604) 717-3321.

When asked for your legal name, are you required to give out your middle name too?

Generally, no.

There are apparently some situations where you do though. My cousin works at a bank and his business card includes like 4 names because it's a legal obligation if you're counselling someone to disclose your full name.

you guys have any recomendations for places to buy power tools, specifically drill/impact driver combo sets in the states?

Lowes seems like it has awsome prices in comparison to home depot, KMS, etc. up here

As long as you are happy with the hassle of warranty and you are not doing the 24hour return thing.. US will beat Canada prices on anything that is not sales priced (sometimes when there are brand tents at places like KMS you might get a better deal).
