There was a hydro explosion apparently. Brought one subway line down, killed both transfer stations, flooded the GO with people. And everything went to shuttlebus/streetcar.

Except they were full, and uber and taxis were insane so they were crawling all the way!!


Red rocket is the toronto transit euphamism (screw spelling today). It may not be a vibrator, but today I do feel f'ed over!!

The great white north, eh?
Oh wow, that is brutal! I hope the trip home is better. (of course, if this snow storm is supposed to be starting here shortly, I imagine it has probably been hitting TO for a while, so ... yah. Winter in Canada, yay!)

Or else, uh, let us know how comfy the carpet under your desk at work is? :blink:

I was lucky. My route was relatively unaffected, though the vehicles were more crowded than usual.

Yes - the commute home was fine. Now i am checking my email to see if I can work from home tomorrow.

I don't understand why some employers get all weird about it. You can track every keystroke I do, and I produce some tangible results on those days. So whats the problem? When I work from home I log in when i would have left for work...and when i would have gotten home. Meaning they get about. 1.5 to 2 hrs extra from me

Ice storm last night. My car was coated in well over an 1/8 of an inch of ice. Had to hammer the door handle and pull like crazy to get the door open. Scraping was a joke on the windshield, I had to smash the ice then try and scrape. Ugh.

God do I ever wish I wasn't born an FFA. Maybe then people would listen to my science and my advice and not just right it all off as me being biased. First proper 10/10 crying session in the new house, lovely.

In fairness, proving that fat guys reduce the effects of climate change was always going to be an uphill battle...

Really though, people who are hostile to new ideas will grasp on to anything to avoid considering them. If they didn't focus on you liking fat guys then they probably would've found some other bogus reason to dismiss you.
I hope it doesn't really make you wish you were different since it sounds like there was something wrong with THEIR thinking.

But the methane emissions...:confused:
Fatter guys = more body heat = less need to burn fuels for heat. Therefore, fat guys = good for the environment. What do you think, is that a convincing enough argument for it? :p

You're right, I was upset and frustrated and in the light of day, I don't actually wish I was different. Aside from wishing I had more cake in my house. I am always wishing that.
