i read that they did re shoot it... the photography company sent a photographer back to retake the photo, so they had the kid sitting on the bench with one of his care workers supporting him up from the side.

Better question, why do they call the pizza place near DT roundtable, yet the only table in the place is rectangular ..... conspiracy

This just came to me today.

In Robert Greene's The 48 Laws of Power, he talks about Edison and Tesla. For those of you who have read the book, it's Law 7.

Even though Tesla was the innovator, he did not protect his inventions. Edison was shrewd enough to take credit for the work. Fast forward to 2013 and the story has turned into "corporations stifle innovation".

It's not enough to be intelligent. You have to be a good businessman as well. Tesla was a crappy businessman. He thought he would change the world on the virtue of science alone. The real world gave him a hearty LOL instead.

When I read here on RS about how it's hard to make money in Vancouver, I think about why they say that. And I came to a conclusion in related to my field that I think partially answers the question.

-If you can code, there are hundreds of thousands of Indians who can do your job offshore for half the pay you're asking. Or unpaid interns can pick up the slack.
-If you can be given an abstract problem, formulate a solution and code it efficiently, you can make good money.
-If you can do the above, but are also a good businessman and can lead a team, then there is no limit to your earning power.

My two cents.

I love the latest Playland radio ad where kid is like, "I want to get off, I want to get off....please, I wanna get off!"

**Not related to another thread here on RS, LOL, but it did cross my mind.

Anyway, the kid cannot "get off", but at the end of the ride, he says something in a deep, manly voice. Playland, making men out of little boys for over a hundred years, LOLOLOL.

I did the wooden coaster for Physics 12, and in the mid-ride photograph I was seen gripping the chair for dear life and my teeth clenched. That was the first and last time I rode the coaster. I did not turn into a man.

But I would like RS's opinion of my thoughts because it might be totally wrong and misguided. I hope I'm not shouting to an empty room.

We are fortunate to have one of the very few remaining wooden roller coasters in the world right here in our backyard, so to speak. You can tell your grandchildren about your experience.

Like losing your virginity, you'll learn to like it and like it a lot........... you'll start to miss that feeling of wanting to get off.

I don't think coasters are as bad as some other rides like StylinRed mentioned. Cause for coasters after the first drop it's pretty relaxing to just feel the breeze as you fly threw the course doing loops and whatnot. But for the other rides, pirate ship being one of them and crazy beach party the other you gotta endure like a whole 1-3 minutes of butterflies. A friend of mine went on crazy beach party and threw up near the end of the ride... Yeah it got pretty messy.

Wooden Coaster is awesome cause you can actually fly out at any given time (or at least feel like you're going to)

I shouldn't have made that thread. Unfortunately, on RS, if you own up to your mistakes you still get pounced on. I have already said in multiple threads that I am going to take out loans and work through school.

'Sesame Street' creates first Muppet to have a parent in jail - NBC News.com

Quote:
Those friendly, fuzzy Muppets from “Sesame Street” have helped kids open up about all sorts of serious subjects, from hunger and divorce to military deployment.

But they’re now tackling a much more unexpected issue: incarceration.

Meet Alex, the first Muppet to have a dad in jail. According to a Pew Charitable Trusts report, one in 28 children in the United States now has a parent behind bars -- more than the number of kids with a parent who is deployed -- so it’s a real issue, but it’s talked about far less because of the stigma.

That’s why the Sesame Workshop says it created the “Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration” initiative, an online tool kit intended to help kids with a parent in prison find support and comfort, and provide families with strategies and tips to talk to their children about incarceration.

Alex is blue-haired and green-nosed and he wears a hoodie – you might think he’s just another carefree inhabitant of Sesame Street. But there’s sorrow in Alex’s voice when he talks about his father.

“I just miss him so much,” he tells a friend. “I usually don’t want people to know about my Dad.”

It’s easier for kids to hear such things from a Muppet than an adult, creators of the initiative noted.

“Coming from a Muppet, it’s almost another child telling their story to the children,” said Jeanette Betancourt, vice president of outreach and educational practices at the Sesame Workshop.

Alex will not be part of the regular cast on “Sesame Street,” but he’s playing a central role in the online tool kit.

Children of parents behind bars often feel sadness, shame and guilt about the situation, so they need to know they are loved and that the incarceration is not their fault, said Carol Burton, executive director of Centerforce, a non-profit dedicated to supporting families impacted by incarceration.

“There are several million children impacted by incarceration in this country,” Burton said. “No one is paying attention to them.”

The project and its unusual subject matter have garnered a lot of attention, with some observers calling it a sign of the times.

"Congratulations, America, on making it almost normal to have a parent in prison or jail," wrote a columnist on Reason.com.

Although I definitely don't think the person should have hit the pedestrian, it's annoying as hell when assholes pull this shit.

Pedestrian injured in parking spot row - British Columbia - CBC News

West Vancouver police are hunting for witnesses to an argument over a parking spot at Park Royal shopping mall, after a person was hit by a car while holding the spot for a friend.

Police say they've identified the driver who bumped the pedestrian on May 30, but are now trying to determine if charges are warranted.

Const. Jeff Palmer said standing in a spot to hold it might be irritating, but it's not illegal.

"We certainly don't recommend people take on vehicles personally. But on the other hand, if somebody's standing there lawfully, a driver has a responsibility not to strike a pedestrian with their vehicle," he said.

"There are certainly much better ways to resolve a dispute over a parking space "

The incident happened in an area north of Whole Foods and the Cactus Club Restaurant.

Police say the pedestrian suffered minor injuries.
