Jack stands: 2 Tons each
2 ton floor trolley jack will be enough.
(maximum weight of 1814kg)

And your not jacking the whole car up anyways on that one jack it only jacks either front or back.

Shooting in Richmond.

I live a few buildings down.
24 Hours Vancouver

Police have barricaded streets around a quiet Richmond apartment complex after witnesses reported hearing gunshots around 1 p.m. Wednesday.

A neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous, said he was at home when he heard the sound of three “pops” in rapid succession near Westminster Highway and Katsura Street.

“They’ve basically barricaded the intersection near the sidewalk on Katsura,” he said. The area is flanked by a church and a newer apartment complex, he described, and police and ambulance officials have converged around a possible victim outside the apartment.

No vegetarian eats seafood, pescetarians eat seafood.

Just curious, but why do you look at it as a negative quality?

I don't really look at it as a bad thing right now. I need to eat healthier and I'm taking that as a way to learn how to cook and use veggies as a healthy aspect.

But fuck I g/f I can't take for sushi


She better like meat if you know what I mean

I guarantee you already eat healthier than she does.

It is a negative thing because she is ignorantly destroying her body Mindbomber. I have nothing against someone who wants to do this to themselves - it's your body right? whatever. But I wouldn't be able to date someone like that. Same thing with smokers... People who willfully destroy their bodies, I don't see that being compatible

I've been a vegetarian for eight years and I still go for sushi with my friends. There's a few options of what to have in a roll aside from fish, it's not quite the same without it, but it's still good.

Tattoos, piercings, and a vegetarian, I bet she'll be a freak in the sheets.

It's your opinion that maintaining a vegetarian diet equates to destroying your body, but I strongly disagree. Both of us could bring up peer reviewed papers to support our positions, but there's almost no chance either of us will sway each other opinions on the issue so I'll leave my post at that.

You wouldn't date a vegetarian, I wouldn't date someone who isn't a vegetarian

As a pescetarian, you are at least eating fish, so you should be fine. The ones who literally don't eat the way their species is built to eat are the ones who are really fucking themselves up.

BTW it's not a matter of opinion that humans are omnivores. If you don't eat what your body needs, you are slowly destroying it.

I know you probably will ignore me, but IMO every vegan and almost ever vegetarian should read Lierre Keith's book "The Vegetarian Myth". She is a life long vegan feminist who has some VERY interesting things to say about it.

You're a smart dude though, so I think you might actually be open enough to hear her out

My two best female friends are vegetarian and I don't mind what so ever. She seems to eat a lot of pastas which I've always been a fan of since I grew up playing sports. See where it goes, she has emerald green eyes which are kinda hard not to look at lol

Elderly woman slashed in East Vancouver crime spree - News1130

Elderly woman slashed in East Vancouver crime spree
Suspect from Maple Ridge is well known to police


VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - A violent crime spree ended with an arrest in East Vancouver tonight.

At 5:45 p.m., police were first alerted to a stolen truck that a man was driving southbound on Cambell Street near East Hastings. While officers were responding to that area, more reports came in that the same truck had crashed with a car on Clark Drive at East 7th Avenue.

The suspect then continued to drive the damaged truck to the intersection of Woodland and East 5th Avenue, where he ditched the wreck.

He next ran up to an 80-year-old woman sitting in her car on East 5th Avenue near Victoria Drive. The man allegedly cut the woman's neck with a knife. She was able to run to safety as the suspect took off in her car.

Moments later, police in the area of East 11th Avenue and Commercial Drive saw the man running. They were able to catch up to him at Clark Drive and took him into custody at gunpoint.

The elderly woman suffered a superficial cut and was treated on scene. The driver of the car in the initial crash on Clark Drive was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Police say the 40-year-old Maple Ridge man is well known to them. He is facing multiple property and violent crime-related charges.

It's certainly not a matter of opinion that humans are omnivores, our teeth are evidence of that and I would not argue that we are not. I would also say however, that humans like all primates are capable of adapting to differing environmental conditions (diet included) very well. Certain primates are vegetarian, while others eat meat rarely, and others pursue meat as an active part of their diet, all with very nearly identical biological structure.I don't think being vegetarian is by nature destroying ones body, some consider it healthier, some consider it unhealthy, I think it's fairly neutral.

Even if I believed my diet was detrimental to my health, lets say being vegetarian took a few years off my life, I still would be. The little fish I eat, I catch, I kill and it is not the emotionless factory farmed, saran wrapped on a piece of styrofoam experience that many people depend on maintaining to avoid acknowledging the life of the animal the flesh came from. I can't separate life from flesh, I need to acknowledge and pay respects to that life personally. If I know the animal suffered in it's life to feed me, like a chicken in a broiler barn does, I can't avoid a sense of guilt for contributing to that suffering. That's a bit strange perhaps, but I've been that way since I was very young. I probably sound the same way a Christian babbling about creation does right now... :P

I'll try to check out that book during the summer.

I have a movie that might interest you. It's called "Animals". A Canadian Indy film maker moves to a farm in Nova Scotia and buys a few animals, against the advise of his farmer neighbors, he treats them as living creatures and not simple faceless commodities. The film maker raises and bonds with them emotionally, at maturity he slaughters and butchers the animals, then eats them. It brings up topics that people are very afraid to face and offers some interesting insights.

You're a smart dude too Skinny, thanks for the compliment.

I looked around and didn't see a second vehicle... and then I noticed skid and drag marks going away from the scene. I actually followed it for five blocks around several corners before I found the stolen old Chevy truck ditched in the driveway of a residential building. I was about to call the police to report the location of the ditched vehicle, but others that were in the area had already called it in.

Did you guys know that 33 local schools have sound disorienting devices in place on school grounds to keep children away after hours?! this is like the same thing they use to torture people except these one target the youth specifically -_-

Mosquito noise devices turned off in Vancouver schools
At least 33 sound machines have been temporarily shut down over potential health concerns
Amelia John Apr 19, 2012 19:43:38 PM

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - They're loud, annoying, and can cause extreme discomfort, but only if you're under 25-years-old. At least 33 mosquito noise devices set up at schools in Vancouver are temporarily being turned off.

The powerful frequencies are meant to keep young people off school property after hours to limit vandalism and graffiti.

David Eby with the BC Civil Liberties Association is worried babies or toddlers who live in neighbourhoods around the schools might have their hearing damaged.

"If you're wheeling a toddler or an infant around in the area, you can't hear the noise, but your infant certainly can. There's a real lack of data about the impact of these devices on the auditory health of very young children, although they meet standards for adults," he says.

Eby is also concerned the devices treat children differently. He supports an outright ban, saying "given those considerations and the fact that they treat young people like a nuisance, we think the school board should seriously reconsider the use of the device. They do something teachers can't do, which is inflict pain and discomfort on people whose actions they disagree with."

The European Union has put forward a motion to ban them, calling the boxes a violation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Vancouver School Board Chair Patti Bacchus had no idea there were so many of the mosquito devices located in the district. "I was very surprised at the number of them. I wasn't aware they were in place; I've been on the board for four years. From what I understand, the first one was put into use before that, so I guess in 2008," she says.

Because of the concerns, she says a public discussion is needed. "There is a public committee, it will be on the agenda of our facilities and planning committee meeting on May 1st at 5:30," she adds.

Bacchus would also like to hear from public health workers and people who live in the surrounding neighbourhoods.

,
I know for us before it was because there were people getting into fights and vandalism, but the most they did was to have a teacher come out and tell people to leave. Though this would explain why when I drive by my old school there would be little to no students outside.
