Im starting to believe these are the tires that came on the car from factory.

How the fucking hell did Diggy do it?

Remember the time he filled up an entire page in the off topic forum?

I'm trying hard, but can't even string 5 threads together......... can't find a soul who can sew.

Today we have "Getting laid vs Being upstanding" Everytime I see that title, I have visions of doing Megan Fox in the standing up position. And, 2014 FIFA World Cup thread....... I'm about as excited about that one as Master Roshi is, lurking around a gay bar. Unless it involves carpet lickers, LOL.

Oh wells........ I challenge any of you to do the "Diggy" and without getting banned. Hee hee.

Yes, ritalin pills went missing again. ADD person trying to keep track of taking pills - good one!

Stanley Park Named Top Park in the World

Vancouver’s crown jewel Stanley Park has been named the top urban park in the world by Trip Advisor.

Here’s what they have to say about Canada’s most celebrated park:

A mini-forest, beautiful gardens, totem poles and scenic walkways make this such a peaceful location. I made a huge pile of autumn leaves and dove into them like a little kid.

The only other Canadian park to have cracked the top 25 was Montreal’s Mont Royal. Meanwhile, New York City had three impressive parks make the top 25.

Within the top 10 best Canadian urban parks list, four B.C. parks were named in the list, including Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Park and Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park.

With a little tender love and care, Queen Elizabeth Park has the potential to be a great city park, one worthy of such a list. As it stands right now, the park lacks uniformity, maintenance and the amenities of Stanley Park; it is a stark contrast to Queen Elizabeth Park’s pristine condition just 20 years earlier.


Top 25 Parks in the World
Stanley Park, Vancouver, B.C.
Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, Colorado
Central Park, New York City, New York
Millennium Park, Chicago, Illinois
High Line, New York City, New York
Kings Park & Botanic Garden, Perth, Australia
Guell Park, Barcelona, Spain
Ibirapuera Park, Sao Paulo, Brazi
Retiro Park (Parque del Retiro), Madrid, Spain
Luxembourg Gardens, Paris, France
Singapore Botanic Gardens, Singapore, Singapore
English Garden, Munich, Germany
Boston Public Garden, Boston, Massachusetts
Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, California
Balboa Park, San Diego, California
Parc de Montjuic, Barcelona, Spain
Bryant Park, New York City, New York
Vigeland Park, Oslo, Norway
St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin, Ireland
Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia
Vondelpark, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
South Bank Parklands,Brisbane, Australia
Mont (Mount) Royal, Montreal, Quebec
St. James’s Park, London, United Kingdom
Castle Hill, Nice, France


Top 10 Parks in Canada
1. Stanley Park, Vancouver, B.C.
2. Mont Royal, Montreal, Quebec
3. Beacon Hill, Victoria, B.C.
4. High Park, Toronto, Ontario
5. Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver, B.C.
6. Plains of Abraham, Quebec City, Quebec
7. Gatineau Park, Gatineau, Quebec
8. Queen Victoria Park, Niagara Falls, Ontario

Citigroup's old neighborhood.

Quote:
Citigroup is shelling out HK$5.42 billion (about $700 million) to build headquarters in Hong Kong. The purchase of the 512,000 square feet (47,566 square meters) twenty-one-story building, to be completed next year, is the largest single-office transaction the city has seen.
+

But Citigroup and the 4,500 employees that will be working from its new HQ may not be getting that much bang for their buck—another example of the city’s extreme property rates. Hong Kong is the second most expensive city in the world to rent office space—after London, which unseated the Chinese city only last year. (Costs in Hong Kong are almost $2,000 per square meter a year, compared to $1,344 per square meter in New York.)
+

This is what Citigroup’s new building, along with another purchased by Manulife, should look like, according to renderings from the developer, Wheelock Properties. Staff should get a nice view of Hong Kong’s Victoria harbor as well as a planned 100-hectare park, a rare glimpse of green in the dense city, and the “auspicious Lei Yue Mun,” the small channel that separates Hong Kong island and Kowloon, Wheelock said.


Quote:
Citigroup’s building will be far from the traditional financial center of Hong Kong, or its newer reaches in Kowloon—right in the “heart of CBD2,” as the developer explains. CBD2, also known as East Kowloon, is a former manufacturing center that officials and developers have been trying to transform into Hong Kong’s next business district since about 2011, so far with limited success. A government website for CBD2 nails one of the challenges to development: “As old industrial districts, the area is not particularly pleasing visually in terms of greening, open space and pedestrian environment.”
+

The building is about 40 minutes via public transportation from the main business district in Hong Kong, known as Central, where Citibank Plaza, and many of the bank’s executives are now located. One Citigroup employee told Quartz the location will be convenient for staff who live in Kowloon, but it is unlikely the bank’s entire staff would be relocated to East Kowloon anyway.
+

Another downside to the area—Citibank Plaza is within walking distance of dozens of expensive, top shelf, banker-friendly restaurants, including the members-only China Club. In Kowloon East, on the other hand, there’s a slew of local Chinese shops and a Pizza Express

Here’s how parts of the heart of CBD2 look at least for now, before new buildings like Citigroup’s come up:












Here?s what you get for $700 million in Hong Kong ? Quartz

Woman are too busy being homemakers than to be Judges - Harper Govt.

Peter Mackay to be exact

MacKay defends suggestion women too busy to be judges | News1130

Quote:
OTTAWA (NEWS1130) – Federal Justice Minister Peter MacKay is defending comments he made last week about why so few women are appointed as judges in Canada.

MacKay was responding to a Toronto Star report Wednesday about an Ontario Bar Association meeting at which he was asked about the lack of women and visible minorities on federally appointed court benches.

MacKay answered the question by saying that women don’t apply to be judges because they fear the job will take them away from their children — and that children need their mothers more than their fathers, the Star report said.

Rather than back away from the comments Thursday, MacKay reinforced them.

“At early childhood, there’s no question I think that women have a greater bond with their children,” he said.

He went on to say that Canada needs more women to apply for judicial appointments, but then walked away from reporters who asked him about the discrepancy.

As of June 1, 24 of the 81 federally appointed judges in Canada were women — just shy of 30 per cent.

Some of MacKay’s Conservative colleagues appeared uncomfortable with his remarks.

Calgary MP Michelle Rempel said parliamentarians should celebrate women, no matter their career choices — including staying at home.

Ontario MP Mike Wallace, who chairs the justice committee, refused to comment on the matter, saying it’s up to MacKay to defend his own statements.

And Quebec MP Maxime Bernier laughed off MacKay’s comments, but was quick to point out that he has a “special bond” with his daughters.

Several men and women who were on hand for the meeting with MacKay described the minister’s remarks to the Star as “disappointing,” “frustrating” and “offensive.”

B.C. officially opened the door to happy hours and implemented minimum drink pricing today, offering flexibility for businesses and their customers while preserving health and public safety.

The minimum price an establishment can charge is $3 for a drink - which, for example, would buy a single ounce cocktail, a five ounce glass of wine or 12 ounce sleeve of beer or cider.
Happy hours and minimum pricing take effect in B.C. | BC Newsroom

The minimum pricing for beers & ciders is bullshit, pretty much the same price as it is currently for their daily beer specials.

Shame on Suzanne Anton and John Yap for getting our hopes up that there would be real change when so far the changes have been deeply underwhelming. Was this liquor review just a political manoeuvre to appear to be listening to the public? Do they even understand what “Happy Hour” means ? #unhappyhour

True; The minimum price for a pint of beer would be $5 and $15 for a 60-ounce pitcher of beer.

Funny how people react initially to the news with like woahhhhh that's cheap then go .....wait a minute...
