Damn, was so excited that the Canadian dollar was at par or slightly higher. I'm planning on going down to the States for a week. Went to the exchange places in Crystal Mall today and they are all out of American. Couldn't make it to VBCE in time.

Oh well, hopefully the exchange rate stays or even go up a bit. LOL.

You should be fine, it's not like it makes 1-1.5 cent daily moves

Anyone know what happened earlier this morning at this apartment on Renfrew/Nootka st. near Renfrew Community Center?

Drove by this morning to work and saw the whole area wrapped around with police tape and parked with cop cars all around. Came home from work tonight and still saw the tape up with lots of cop cars and the forensic investigation unit vehicle parked too.

Homicide?

White SUV crashed front first into the lawn/bushes of the church next to Vantech, the rear end of the white SUV was smashed up pretty bad, half a block West in front of Vantech a VPD Yukon had some front end damage with an officer taking pictures of the damage, almost appears if the VPD Yukon hit the White SUV during a chase.

Seemed late 20's early 30's... i don't know, i kind of wanted to inquire as to why he would do that but decided that it's not my place.

It doesn't even matter if it is a lease or not to me, why would you not want to get the most out of the car?

An airline in Vietnam has been fined for an in-flight bikini dance show that featured beauty queens strutting their stuff in the aircraft's aisle.

VietJet Air, a low-cost carrier of Vietnam, says it staged the event to help celebrate its Aug. 3 inaugural flight between Ho Chi Minh City and the tourist center of Nha Trang, according to Australia's News.com.au.

Question regarding MSP and BC's Healthcare system for low-income residents:

My mother's friend has two young children (2 and 6 years of age) who are in need of dental care (i.e. cavities). She's a single working low-income mother. She's wondering if MSP covers the fillings. I tried looking it up but had no luck. All I found was that MSP does not cover dental services.

Anyone with more info.?

At first I wasn't going to watch that video, but I'm so glad I did. Heart. Warmed.

"Dude, like how much should I pay you for this?"
"I accept love, I don't want no money from you, bro.... help out your brothers and sisters, unconditional love for every living thing!"

I always stop if to help if it looks like someone is having car trouble, always. Whether the person be male or female, young or old. Sometimes even if it's just a twenty-something guy who looks like they've got it down pat, they might need a helping hand. Once I stopped for a young guy, turns out hr couldn't find his lug nut key and I happened to have the one he needed. Feels as good to help, as it does to receive the help.

Sooo was at TBC earlier and on my last race, was behind some guy and made a few attempts to pass him. Contact was made a few times and I guess he got upset before I finally passed him at a corner. Got good distance from him and when the yellow light came on, he caught up to me and hit me on purpose. He was driving pretty aggressively and a few corners later he gets tangled up with another guy and I pass him again. Towards the end of the race, I noticed he was trying to catch up to hit me again. Race is over, we go check our times and the kid keeps looking at me, waiting for me I guess. We finally head out, him and his posse are standing by their cars (A Tiburon and a Civic) so me and my buddies wait a few mins to see if they'll leave. The kid clearly wanted a piece of me cause he would just keep looking at us - we finally decide to leave and he yells out "fuck you bitch, GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE CAR!" I decide to ignore it but my friend snapped, he comes running down the hill as I'm going around the parking lot and attempts to throw something at my car. We pulled after we turned onto Burrows road and we see him and his pack of douchebags going after us. My buddies snapped and got out of our cars and were waiting for them.. they see us hop out and run back to their cars...

Stupid fuck, if you can't take a few contacts during a go kart race and getting passed, stay the fuck home or go elsewhere if you wanna act like a hurt ass faggot.
