Covfefe! I remember when Trump mumbled and spoke nonsensically

Yeah, that' didn't happen.

Right. Trump never spoke nonsense. Got it

Killing a ten old baby old baby is obviously murder. Good thing we don’t also refuse to give mothers and newborns the supports they need so that there aren’t unnecessarily high infant mortality rates! Oh wait, spongy old white dudes only care about the sanctity of every human life until it is ejected from a vagina, at which point each little bundle of joy is on its own.

Enjoy the upcoming state-to-state medical tourism, I guess 🤷🏼‍♂️

Everyone misses Peter. It’s the eyes.

Thankfully, he’s hanging out with Markus Naslund now, which is something we can all be happy about

Bruins are going to win

Ew. Fuck Boston. But at least I could be happy for Bergeron, their only redeeming player.

nhl people: somebody give me the state of the league going into the playoffs. i only ever watch avs games and see league standings, so i have no idea who's actually good and who isn't. for example, the florida panthers are good now? what? when did that happen?

Florida is crazy good. Historic offense good, plus D corps and Goalie(s) playing well enough to beat anybody. 13 wins in a row and they’re cruising into the playoffs.

Avs are the next scary good team. If you watch them you know why. Not as complete as Florida, but they’re a beast and they have a chip on their shoulder after recent playoff failures.

Calgary is the second best team in the west, with their goaltending, defense corps and top line carrying them hard in 2022. Gaudreau has been a machine lately.

The rest of the west is a tough one to make sense of. St Louis and Minnesota have been good all year, Edmonton is surging, but relies on a 40 year old in net behind McDaddy and Drai. Kings stars and preds aren’t threats on paper, but who knows, Vegas can still sneak in but I hope they choke.

The east beneath Florida is a shit show. All the playoff teams are good. The caps are the easiest out on paper, Especially if Ovi’s injury tonight puts him out for any of the first round. Tampa is Tampa, Boston is Boston, the Canes have been taking care of business all year, but for whatever reason I don’t know if I trust them as real cup contenders. Leafs are good on paper but have some major playoff demons to try to exorcise, rangers can beat anyone if sheshterkin gets hot again, penguins are nearing the end of their winning window with their core which could be a good or bad thing for them…

It’s the most interesting lead up to playoffs there has been in years. The league’s good teams are in great shape. If only the bad teams weren’t such an absolute fucking mess.

The kraken expansion has been sad from day one, and Gary Bergman’s insistence on hockey in Arizona is getting embarrassing, with the team planning on sharing UA’s rink for the next three (or more) years, with a seating capacity somewhere around 4,000. And they just announced per game prices for potential season ticket holders and it’s a ludicrous considering they can’t even get people in to watch the games this year when they give thousands of tickets away for every game.

I’m a Leafs fan though so I’m bracing for disappointment, be it Tampa or Boston. I will now be taking whisk(e)y, bourbon, and summery beer recommendations. Just got the wall mount installed at the back of the house so I can watch games in the nice weather this year

Imagine equating that paragraph with saying “I have a husband” or “my wife’s name is Liz”.

There was only one teacher I had growing up who never mentioned anything about her family. We all thought she was a crazy cat lady, and she got treated with a lot more shenanigans than most other teachers did.

Teachers shouldn’t be putting their personal drama on display and transferring their stress to their students, but being disallowed from sharing anything about the existence of their family as you seem to suggest is the proper course of action here is asinine.

Ah yes, the ol’ I don’t believe in the globe because a few things line up with this map which I also don’t believe in argument.

The best defense of the bi-polar model is…the monopole map?

As usual, thank god I’m not a jets fan. But I’m pissed they crushed us in that Jamal Adams trade

no significant changes to routes commonly used for hundreds of years have occurred.

In a discussion about air travel, you’re talking about routes used for hundreds of years?

By that logic, the Finns are all Nazis, let’s bomb their hospitals.

As a parent, I want kids to have access to ask difficult questions, or things they don’t feel comfortable about with their parents, to other qualified people they trust.

I hope my kids feel comfortable enough to ask me anything once they get to an age when questions start to come up. But if they don’t, I want there to be someone trustworthy, and accessible to them.

You could replace FE with RE in your post and it would hold the same value…

Goodbye Russ.
Hello draft picks that we desperately needed. Let’s not screw this up, Schneids. As soon as a decent coach becomes available, let’s let Pete ride into the sunset too plz.

Here’s to being garbage for a few years.

If you read what I said, I’m not completely in favour of just handing out clean needles and pretending you’re solving things. That should be a minor part of tackling the broader issue.

A quick google shows the WHO reported 1.3M deaths annually from dirty needles, costing $535M/yr. That report is from 1999, so I would expect that both deaths and costs are actually higher today.

To me, a higher priority for today is probably fentanyl detection. Regardless, I would prefer to see a more fulsome approach - and better funding and education - to addictions, homelessness, and mental health issues.
