Back in the day when a new phone was completely different than an outgoing model both in design and function, I could see the argument going out to get a new phone - but nowadays, all phones really just look the same and the performance differences are just minimal bumps.Jump to post

What kind of gun did this shooter use?
Did the shooter come from out of state? David Chou brought his assault rifles into California from out of State last year and shot up a church with them. IIRC, you brought up the same argument in that thread. Using a State's gun control laws as an argument when anyone can bring in guns from states ...Jump to post

I was wondering, do you plan to buy the Samsung Galaxy S23 series? Nope - I don't do Android. If I were to go non- iOS, I'd buy a Google Pixel.

No, you'll need at least 1.13hrs.
Joking aside, no idea - never been to DFW but just over an hour for an International connection is usually on the tight end, at least for my personal preference.
So I'm wondering if CUN is served from Asia. CUN is the most visited destination from overseas. If they were flights to CUN from Asia, probably JL, KE, and NH would serve those routes. Same reason why all those overseas flights to CUN are operated by leisure airlines and not mainline airlines, CUN ...Jump to post

Don't know what you mean. at least for Top Gun one and two many shots were filmed in the air. The actors actually flew in the backseat of those Hornets and Tomcats.

You can always make a screenshot of a boarding card and send it over to another phone. Yup, always did that when travelling with my ex.

In my experience, self scanning using your phone or paper boarding pass was quite common long before Covid, even in the US. Having flown in/out of the US every couple of weeks for years prior to the pandemic, I honestly can't remember the last time a gate agent or security screener scanned for me. ...Jump to post

It's interesting to me that I've see things flip where people view the quality of life of that 4 bedroom house with a nice backyard lower than the 2 bedroom apartment in the city. It ties in to my "white flight" comment above. Back in the 50s-90s or so inner cities were viewed as crowded,...Jump to post
Just a quick request, if you are saying "in my city" etc, name the city, gives old folks like me an idea of where you are talking about. Sorry, Vancouver BC for me.

With an average or below average salary I can ask my city for public housing.

Strata/HOA fees can run quite high in US suburbs, depending on location of course. Even in Florida the average is north of $300/month. Fortunately, HOA's in Canada aren't close to what they are in the US, but strata fees for a 1 bedroom apartment in the city will easily run you $300/month minimum, ...Jump to post
Actually, we seem to be in agreement and the housing economy seems to be in agreement. If housing is more expensive in walkable neighborhoods then there is more demand and thus people are prepared to pay more for less floor space. The demand is there, but the people who would benefit the most of su...Jump to post

The US once had walk-able neighborhoods, but you pulled them all down to build highways and stripmallls with vast parking lots. The US is now full of hundreds of empty shopping malls, and carparks which nobody uses. Strip malls are brilliant if designed and placed properly - one stop shopping/enter...Jump to post
Actually no, there is quite a bit known about the migration to Canada and Australia after WWII. I wasn't referring to post WW2, but more so today. It's a conscious choice about how to build your cities and what kind of transport needs there are. The Dutch made a very conscious choice in the 70-ish ...Jump to post
For the most part, bikini style briefs - keeps the meat and veg nice and snug. On date nights though, boxers - most women I've dated appreciated the easy access, especially in the car or in other places of questionable locations.
For reference, older than most of you and in Canada.
Ask your fellow countrymen why they moved to Canada or the US, its because they want exactly what we all want, a nice 4 bedroom rancher with a 2 car garage on an acre or two of green grass and a shiny new Cadillac in the driveway. - so, because of that, we built out and not up and with that building...Jump to post
Like him or hate him Michael Moore made this arguments 20 years ago. Violent movies and video games do not increase gun violence and other violence for that matter.

That is really sad and scary. We need to take action and have governments pass strict laws limiting and banning the use of fossil fuels.

Sure its possible, both ANA and JAL used modified 747s with high density seating on short hauls for years, its just a matter of coming up with a reasonable business case for it.
