Hilarious. My buddy used to sell Jason steroids until he became scared of him.
We have these things called weather and topography that make that 2030 goal laughable.
That bike counter actually demonstrates it pretty well. A little bit of cold, and the number for yesterday dropped dramatically (unless there's some malfunction because that does seem like a steep drop off).
Same with the wetter weather (I think this September was wetter than normal and had 30,000 less monthly trips than last September).
And before someone chimes in a says "but Copenhagen," yeah, there's similar weather but 1) density; 2) topography; and 3) commute distances are vastly different.
Plus, fuck Copenhagen, I prefer Skoal.
I would also suggest some sort of weather altering device so that it isn't rainy, cold and dark here 8 months of the year. That would probably help with the cycling.
Or maybe we could admit that only a very small and vocal subset of our population "really wants to change behavior" to force more cycling and we could stop catering to them. Because a vast majority of people don't want their "behavior changed" by government planners.
Biggity biggity BIKES, y'all!!!!1! 1!
It's a jump scare but not too bad.
Maybe you should rub out another one while you think your options over.
I don't know about all you homebodies but I'm gonna follow the Oregon Trail all the way on out to Detroit.
I hear the fed'ral guvmint been given folks 160 acres, two cows, and a 100 pound ration of wheat flour just to come settle down and make something nice of that desolate wilderness. It's a land of opportunity out there.
CC- As Blabby correctly points out we can't afford to build ourselves out of this mess. The beds the $48M bought us- Bud Clark Commons, in case you wondered- cost $215,000 each which means that we'd have to spend between $500,000,000 and $1,000,000,000 to build enough beds to house all the homeless. So, when someone like Ibrahim forms a new camp which he has done twice now- Dignity Village was the first one- the City will buy him off to shut him up for a year or two.
Ibrahim's idea of bottom up management and structures that are safe but not up to code- such as shipping containers or the rustic structures in Dignity Village- is the only way we can actually scale solutions in a way we can afford. But, there is a lot of money in keeping people poor and homeless so status quo will prevail.
I feel so lucky to have seen Wild Flag live - twice. For a one-off, it was a real kick in the ass. Thanks to four awesome women who brought me a lot of musical joy. And I'm pretty sure I wasn't alone.
A cop who beats his wife. Gee, ya don't say.
Hilarious, I'm sure. I don'l watch the show.
Anyway, Steve, I'm writing a one-man play for you, "Burl Ives Snowman: Refrigerated Boxcar Bum."
If your friend already knows, he'll think you're a busy body who needs to get a life and shut the hell up about his relationship. If your friend doesn't know, he'll shoot the messenger and think you're a busy body...
What exactly are you trying to accomplish? You didn't say what sorts of acts, if any were depicted. If it's protecting him from STD's, it's probably too late for that. If it's saving him from a deceptive person, it's too late for that as well. If she's a manipulative liar, she's probably already got a good backstory that'll make anything you may have to say look stupid.
As I see it, you have absolutely nothing to gain and you won't do anything to help your friend.
landocal, yea you sure it wasn't her, I mean you said it wasn't and she said it wasn't...but I still think it was.
@George, Really, really easily since I'm capable holding two different thoughts in my head.
For example, 2+2 = 4.
HOWEVER: 2(1+ 49) - 300 + 200 + 4 ALSO = 4.
I think it's fair to ask "why not just do 2+2," without in any way disparaging the number 4.
I would recommend using as blackmail material. Maybe you could get a threesome out of the deal.

JEEZ SPOILER ALERT
"Dual citizenship" = if push comes to shove Denis might side with the leaf people and suddenly we'll all be eating cold poutine for breakfast.
I'm enjoying this "Benedict Cumberbatch reads things" trend. Pls continue.
"Let's put aside for a second the humanitarian part of this..."
How do you do that?
And we just built a shelter, is what I can't get over. It has 90 shelter beds and 130 permanent units, plus a drop-in day center which I'm assuming can accommodate a hundred+. It cost $40 million. Are we expected to build one of these each year? Are we heartless enemies of the needy if we don't shell out $40 million a year? Are we not trying our best?
"What do the city's risk managers say"
This is assuming that:
A) The city has risk managers to speak of
B) They don't just tell the Council what it wants to hear on any given issue
C) They aren't just the same people who green lit Randy and Sam's shenanagins
