Where can I dropped off old used rotors? I installed new rotors but I have no idea what to do with the old ones. Is there a place that recycles them or something? Perhaps a scrap yard?

Thanks

Any auto or muffler shop shouldn't care if you add to their scrap steel bin. Call and ask first though.

Got busted a few weeks ago.. Cars were going unreasonably slow so I pull into the right lane and hit the gas just to pass them and got pulled over.

First thing I thought was "ah. No wonder they were going slow."

but there were so many people being pulled over.

Mine was at Broadway and lillooet.

Anyone got any suggestions on good headphones that you don't have to stick inside your ears. Looking for something similar to like iPhone/iTouch earphones but obviously

Maybe looking into the $100-200 budget zone?

Harold Ramis, 69 died from complications of a rare disease





Quote:
Harold Ramis dead at 69, starred in Ghostbusters, SCTV
Actor, writer worked with Second City colleagues such as John Belushi, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd

Actor, writer and filmmaker Harold Ramis, the Ghostbusters star whose comedy credits include Groundhog Day and the National Lampoon films, has died at age 69.

Ramis died early Monday morning at his Chicago-area home, surrounded by family and friends, according to a statement from his Los Angeles representatives, United Talent Agency.

Ramis died of complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a condition that affects blood vessels he had battled for the past four years.

Chicago-born Ramis started his comedy career in 1969 in his hometown's influential Second City improv comedy theatre, where he would encounter his friends and regular collaborators such as John Belushi, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd.

"[I'm] deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my brilliant, gifted, funny friend," Aykroyd said in a statement on Monday.

"May he now get the answers he was always seeking."

When the troupe launched its landmark television series SCTV in the late 1970s, Ramis was its first head writer, as well as one of the cast members.

Nearly a decade later, the former Playboy magazine jokes editor broke through in Hollywood with the blockbuster comedy National Lampoon's Animal House, starring Belushi, and became known for some of the most popular comedy films of the 1980s.

Throughout his career, he would mix screenwriting, directing, producing and acting roles. His best-loved titles include his role in the Ghostbusters films — in which he portrayed the straight-laced Dr. Egon Spengler and co-wrote with Aykroyd — and directing the comedy classic Groundhog Day, starring Murray.

He often teamed with his former Second City colleagues for wild and silly films, including Stripes, Caddyshack, Meatballs and National Lampoon's Vacation.

"He was a very generous, smart guy. He was always the quietest person and the loudest person in the room. His volume didn't come from his voice. It came from his intelligence," Canadian filmmaker Ivan Reitman, who directed Ghostbusters and Meatballs, told CBC's As It Happens.

"You had to pay attention because he was always going to say something really clever that made whatever we were working on better.

"I loved the guy. I always felt he was the one I could speak to, that I could be the closest with, and there must have been hundreds of others who felt the same way. It's why I felt like he was the brother I never had. He was like the more funny version of me. I learned a lot from him."

In recent years, Ramis's work included directing episodes of The Office, the film Year One and cameo roles in movies by filmmakers he'd influenced (including Judd Apatow's Knocked Up). He was also touted as a caring mentor in the industry and a key inspiration to a younger generation of comedy filmmakers, including Adam Sandler, Jay Roach, Jake Kasdan and Peter and Bobby Farrelly.

Second City founder Bernie Sahlins once said that, from the start, he knew Ramis “would be an important factor in American comedy.

"He has all the skills and abilities to be funny and to write funny, but he also is a leader, a very nice guy. He was always looked up to, in Second City to being head writer at SCTV. He was never separate from anybody. He was always one of the boys, but he was the best boy," Sahlins told the Chicago Tribune in a 1999 interview. Sahlins, who had worked with Ramis since 1969, died in 2013.

Ramis is survived by his wife, Erica Mann Ramis, his children Julian, Daniel and Violet and two grandchildren.

Downtown Vancouver's Giant Rooftop Sundial (PHOTOS)



There’s a good reason you might not have known about it as it’s completely out of sight and out of mind from Vancouverites, unless you’re Superman or live in one of the condo towers near International Village – where the giant sundial, measuring to approximately 40-metres in diameter, can be found on the city-block sized mall’s rooftop.

nternational Village was completed in 1998 and consists of unique architectural details that are overlooked and forgotten given the mall’s lifeless reputation and the troubled neighbourhood that borders it to the north. Aside from the rooftop sundial, the mall features a central galleria along its southwest to northeast axis (running parallel to the sundial as shown in the photos) to maintain the Canadian Pacific Railway’s right-of-way.

Prior to the construction of the Dunsmuir Tunnel, which is now used by the SkyTrain Expo Line, a ground level rail line traveled through the mall’s galleria, Gastown and the Downtown Eastside to link the CPR’s False Creek rail yards with its Coal Harbour rail yards.
