No, I'm pretty sure its the indiscriminate bombing of children overseas that'll do it.

Not even gonna show mine. I justs did not get it until the revealer. That one seemed really obtuse for some reason.

Canadian here. No, you fucking dont. We basically have 2 major players (Loblaws and Sobeys), and they were caught red-handed fixing the price of bread a few years ago, and faced next to no punishment for it.

Its actually insane how hard the US clings to the death penalty.

Could it be that the mounting evidence is demonstrating that the commodification of housing and its increasing use as an investment vehicle is driving the housing crisis?

Nah, must be those damn immigants and red tape thats not letting us build on protected environments!

I guess you're right. Might as well give up now, put zero effort into making anything better, and simply wallow in my own smug pessimism.

Wild that a country that has such a rich history of same-sex relationships would take this long to legalize it.

People need to be more media litterate and more skeptical of news stories instead of taking them at face value, regardless of Deepfakery. So many articles that pass as "news" are filled with opinion and adjectives designed to ellicit an emotional response.

People need to learn to look at a piece of information and ask questions.

  • Who wants me to be reading this?
  • What emotions (if any) is this trying to ellicit?
  • What objective information can be taken from this story?
  • What are the sources for that objective information? Are they reliable?

Etc. Etc. Etc.

Even a Fox News article can have some insight into the goings on if you can parse the information from the spin. Deepfakes are just going to be another level of spin, but if people are informed enough, they'll be able to logically differentiate between a real news story and a damning fake video.

However, that doesnt solve the age old problem of willfully ignorant people and the confirmation bias...

We had a really promising, progressive city councillor run for Mayor who basically tanked their campaign by making investment in cycling infrastructure one of their main platforms.

So, instead, we got a business-as-usual developper friendly mayor who will continue to do nothing to address public transit issues, or improvr cycling infrastructure besides painting a few lines on busy roads.

This thing punches waaaaay above its weight class in terms of price to playability. It is actually stupid how much better it is than my LP. Neck heel is beautiful, completely open access to the upper frets. A nice, chunky, matte neck, too.

It also has a coil-tap-but-not-coil-tap on the tone knob push pull that gives a little more bite and chime single coil character but with minimal output loss.

Another thing I really appreciate is that Yamaha took the time to wire the pots correctly so when I turn them "forward" (counterclockwise), the volume goes up. Some other, bigger companies do not always take the time to do this.

All in all, a solid guitar for a great price. Highly recommend giving it a look if you are in the market for a versatile HH guitar.

Finally found a Danelectro Chicken Salad for a resonable price (ie pre-JHS hype prices). Definitely a good Vibe circuit, but the casing is fragile. Do not fall for the hype and buy one over $100. At that price, you could get a BBE Soulvibe, which is just as good IMO, and has a sturdier case.

The Yamaha CH100 Stereo chorus was a neat find. Very much a thick, lush, 80s style stereo chorus. The manual and width knobs are pretty interactive making for some very cool sounds. Absolutelty S P A C I O U S in S T E R E O.

I attended this last year and it was a blast! Anyone in the area should check it out. Lots of big names like Walrus, EarthQuaker, Pigtronix, and Empress will be there, but also small local builders that deserve attention too.

I bought this bike six years ago as my first bike, and it only had ~22,000kms on it, not bad for a 35 year old (at the time) bike.

Its been my bike that I have learned on, not just rising, but hard lessons in general. Some of these include:

  • Do not tarp your bike as soon as you are done riding, the tarp will melt on the exhaust pipes.
  • Check your clutch cable regularly to see if its wearing out so it doesn't snap on you in the middle of traffic (and also the day before your road test).
  • It is very hard to find a clutch cable on short notice on a Saturday evening.
  • Oil changes require a crush washer, or you will leak oil. A lot of oil.
  • On that note, it is recommended that oil changes take place a little more frequently than once every five years.
  • You should bring your bike in for a tire change while the tires can still hold air for longer than 2 hours.
  • Bring your battery inside in the winter so water inside doesn't freeze, and you wont have to boost your battery every 2 weeks.
  • Also read the battery instructions carefully and don't overfill it, causing the battery juice to leak out onto your pipes and rusting them up.

Despite all my lack of awareness in maintenance and general care, this this is still going strong. So far all I've had to replace is the clutch cable (mentioned above), a headlamp, and a fuse. It is a testament to how well these old UJM bikes were built that its still running despite my less than regular maintenance schedule.
