shakespeare 2/26/2014 2:33:13 AM Report

This afternoon in the little bay in front of our condo, I swam with the most huge turtle that I've ever seen. I was snorkelling and next to me appeared this extremely large, beautiful creature, bigger and heavier and almost certainly older than I. I was a little startled. He turned and looked at me with the most benign eyes. And we swam together. It was a great moment. His brain is probably not much bigger than Steely's or Wisen's but the wisdom in those eyes was remarkable.
I came back to celebrate by pan frying macadamia encrusted Ono fish served with boiled purple Hawaiian potatoes in garlic butter. I know, it's not Walmart chicken, but we do what we have to.
Nihil habeo cum porcis.

Good morning everyone and sorry to hear you are still suffering along Shakespeare. Harper was chastising Justin in Parliament yesterday for leaving his Convention without giving a press conference. He said he would certainly not do that to huge applause from his goon squad. The sad part about all this is he has also done this and is now conveniently forgetful or he is a bare faced liar. You swamp dwellers take your pick as he is either addled or a flat out liar. I expect the next time you google Harper lies it will be there along with plenty of other of his better ones. I also thought how very thoughtful of P.M, Harper to send Baird over to the Ukraine to give more Canadian taxpayer's money away instead of giving it to those pesky vets and seniors. Have a great day all.

David O response yesterday didn't go over well with a lot of people, can't blame them as I've seen the road blocks and huge ditches dug out by the MNR to keep us off the lands.
Go to the MNR and see all the MNR trucks that sit there day after day ,your tax dollars paying for them to be idle.Gas is still 133.9 yippee ,(sarcastic).

Stupid Quote of the Day:

After Arizona passed a law allowing businesses to refuse service to gays....


Carol Foyler, a Tea Party Republican who supported the anti-gay law, said that the startling bombshell that gays play a role in the state’s economy put her and her fellow lawmakers “in a tight spot.”

“Quite frankly, we were blindsided by this,” she said. “We had no idea that gays had money and bought things just like regular people do.”

Is there a reason that the MNR shuts off these roads to public access ??

(I mean a real reason other than the knee-jerk "To give the rich Americans access " answer.)

Snobank, you spent few hours proof reading a post about spelling and grammar and you arrived to a conclusion of your own, now I'd like to ask you a question; do you think Stephen Hawking spent time spelling?

Second, would you illuminate us all with an explanation about Einstein lack of spelling and grammar?

I'll give you two hypothetical situations:
I drive my car on the road and a deer cross the road, I can't avoid and kill the animal.
I drive my car, I see a deer on the side of the road, I go out of my way in pursue of the deer, drive over the shoulder and finally on a side road I kill the deer.

Which one is a mistake and which is intentional.

commenting on the Olympics ....I didn't realise until the medal ceremony that medals were given to people that were there only as spares. Some hockey players never set foot on the ice. I also didn't know that team Jacobs had a fifth man. Whom also never shot a rock on camera. Personally I would feel odd to accept a medal for just being there. Is that a bad thing?

Good morning everyone
What a beautiful but chilly day! I was thinking about all the comments directed at David O yesterday(including my own). W5 was mentioned. Boy, would those people have their work cut out for them here in the Sault! I`m surprise no one thought to contact them long ago!
I woke up thinking how grateful I am for sootoday. No, I`m not kidding. The blue room along with the comment section following news stories allows anyone to voice their opinion! That is priceless to those of us who have not been taken seriously by certain elected officials. I`m referring to those who continuously ignore letters etc in an attempt to shut someone up! Rather difficult to shut someone up when it`s plastered all over the internet!
This is good. Things will be dealt with then, everyone will be able to move forward. SOOTODAY>>>THANKS! You allow our voices to be heard!

jojoe; A team sport is just that, a team sport. If your team wins you get a share in the glory whether you play or not.

A spare is a necessary part of every team, right down to dart leagues...:)

Although Sootoday does give people a voice, not many read the comments and even fewer take those comments seriously.

This is an anonymous forum and people can say whatever they want and pretend to be whoever they want. They insult each other and sometimes post the absurd just to get attention. Posters here complain and whine and are generally just negative about everything.

dust2 2/26/2014 9:27:32 AM Report

O.P.P wants to name-and-shame before convictions -

pretty sad if you ask me. innocent until proven guilty, it helps no one to release the names of people charged before any verdict is decided.

It's the same thing here with names being released on the police beat report. When no name is released, the comment section goes crazy "WHERE'S THE NAME, THIS IS USELESS WITHOUT THE NAME". What reasonable person would need this information so bad? How are you protecting your kids more when you see those names in the news articles? Even if it was someone you knew, the names are usually released before their verdict, so even before you're innocent you're guilty in the public eye.

This kind of redirect and behavior only fuels negative habits, the people complaining about lack of names strike me as bored fat housewives, with nothing better to do than dig up the dirt on other people because they're uninteresting and not unique in any way. Why try to have respectable dialogue with someone when you can talk smack about some "little punk" who stole from macs (who you probably would never know or meet)

it's just wrong to tell the public "JOHN DOE IS CHARGED WITH THIS CRIME, BUT WE DON'T KNOW IF HE'S GUILTY OR NOT, BUT NOW YOU KNOW". It offers nothing, no extra help, no extra safety or security, nothing. it just fuels toxic negative behavior.

Way to go Grump; sticking up for the Shiney Pony like that. The reason he did not give a press conference after the Liberal Yawnfest was because his handlers got the ballgag in his yap in time to stop him from saying something even stupider than usual.As for Canada giving money to the Ukraine: if Harper didn't send them some cash the Dippers and the Libs would be squealing like stuck pigs.

The West boycotted the Moscow Olympics in1980---why ?
During the summer Olympics a few years back--Russia invaded Georgia---guess they thought no one was looking.
In the 60's Russia invaded Czechoslovakia, Hungary, East Germany and Poland to put down popular uprisings.The possibility of a Russian invasion of Ukraine is very real.
Although what Justin said appeared to many as a flippant remark,in fact it was directed at the Russians as a way of saying--We Know what you're up to.Something the other party leaders would not dare to mention because they would appear to be meddling in another country's internal affairs.

I have a question and should I be on the slippery side, let me know. There is someone with knowledge in the Indians traditions that can illustrate me regarding the values of certain symbolism. I believe calling it Indian traditions is respectful, as most Indians where converted to Christianity, but they still keep or remember for word of mouth the old traditions and what I'd like to know is the following:

I know that bear paws, hawk feathers, nails, the snake, the tumble bug or similar, all have an special value and signification for Indians, and I'd like to know what value is given to the turtle. I know the value of the animal itself within the food chain, but what significance if has for the Indians. I mean, like in my traditions God, Jesus, Mary, Joseph, the Holly Spirit, and the Apostles all have different value. How it's within the traditions?

Please, if in any way the question is imprudent, let me know so. I hope is not.

And I know, I can google it, but I'd like to read it straight from someone involved in it as it will have a total different value for my memory.

So.. Dusty...You have something to hide?? I'm sure the police don't just arrest anybody willy-nilly.. They are charged with something and the name is published... Like it or not, it is probably a deterrent to a lot of others that might try something incognito. When you haul some airhead, drunk as a skunk, out of a vehicle then yes you publish the name as charged.. The only thing I think that should be changed is if they are found innocent that should be published also.. The sad fact is, most of them are guilty as hell..
dust2 2/26/2014 2:48:41 PM Report

it's not a deterrent though, people are going to commit the crime regardless of whether their name is published. if you have the foresight to think about the repercussions from your name being posted online due to a criminal charge, you're part of the 1% of criminals that have foresight. the rest don't think, they just do.

the point is that being charged doesn't mean you're guilty. you fail to understand that, or don't care. I care. I care about false rape claims and cops who make mistakes, I care about people who are in the public eye and are working professionals.

No one here EVER thinks if someone is guilty or not, they just assume their guilty. It's a witch-hunt mob mentality, and it can ruin careers. Do you know how far bored fat house wives will go to ruin someones reputation or make sure others know about their bad actions? it's depressing how much people work to tarnish someones name.

Rights are rights, and while that drunk-as-a-skunk douche is caught, he still is entailed to a trial and a fair judgement before a verdict is reached. if someone did something wrong, let's do some work and determine if he's wrong FIRST, then release the name.

No this is not a "I do bad things so I want to be protected" incident, I don't break the law so I don't have anything to worry about. That's exactly the problem though, if someone falsely accuses me of something my name is posted and my reputation is instantly at risk. For what? Public safety? There has been no proper system to determine if I'm guilty or not, so why should my name be released when I've done nothing wrong?

The truth is the name nonsense helps no one except bored housewives. It's all gossip bull, nothing more.

in terms of reputation, they like to see people lose their jobs. ever read the situations about a radio host saying something controversial on the air? the phone calls start flooding in, and not just to the radio station, but also to the sponsors of the station. people call in threatening to never buy their products again because they sponsor a radio station that promotes whatever behavior/belief they disagree with. a radio station can deal with a complain, but if a sponsor decides to back out because of that incident, that's money lost. the housewives know this and work the system to their advantage.

that's one example. they can threaten a business to never return, they can create websites and groups that promote the false accusation, plenty of things that catches the attention of the eyes who employ the 'guilty' party.

what's worse is the violence that comes with it.

people DIE because of false accusations, regardless of crime. how many posts here do you see that mention some form of "street justice" for criminals? you don't think it's below people to go harm someone else because of information they saw online?

Their name shouldn't be released until a verdict is made. What if someone says I assaulted them? What if the accuser was female? Ever heard the term "white knights"? They're out there, and they wouldn't think twice about beating up someone for assaulting a girl.

What is to be gained from hearsay? NOTHING, that's what. What's to be lost from hearsay? Plenty, including lives

Bobby Nerves 2/26/2014 8:49:03 PM Report

Snobank, you are capable of elaborating a theory, however you can't answer a question, or two.

The point is as follows:

Pursuing perfect spelling and grammar does not reflect intelligence neither motivation, nor a high IQ will reflect intelligence; by the contrary it is only a mania and a symptom of a personality disorder.
Those with such disorder are preoccupied with order, perfection and mental control, but they are not attentive to flexibility, openness and efficiency.

They need rules and pre established procedures to dictate the exact answer because are not capable of decision making process.
Those people have a difficulty setting priorities.
The lack of control over their personal or interpersonal environment will upset them, but there is not a direct expression of such anger.
They are prone to become upset or angry in situations in which they are not able to maintain control of their physical or interpersonal environment, although the anger is typically not expressed directly.
For you to understand, I'll exemplify it, a person is upset because can't influence and control interpersonal environment and instead of expressing it directly, the individual will start and argument about the poor spelling and grammar of the whole site.
As you see, the importance of the content will be secondary, while the triviality of misspelling will take the first place. In other situations, the individual will manifest anger expressing indignation over a minor matter. In the case I'm proposing, the individual indignation is directed to the lack of righteous religion of others.

Now, pay attention to the following paragraph and you'll grasp what my point is:
People with this disorder may be especially attentive to their relative status in dominance-submission relationships and may display excessive deference to an authority they respect and excessive resistance to authority that they do not respect.

Individuals with this disorder usually express affection in a highly controlled or stilted fashion and may be very uncomfortable in the presence of others who are emotionally expressive. Their everyday relationships have a formal and serious quality, and they may be stiff in situations in which others would smile and be happy (e.g., greeting a lover at the airport). They carefully hold themselves back until they are sure that whatever they say will be perfect. They may be preoccupied with logic and intellect.
Are you capable to understand my point.

Further, spelling and grammar obsession is typical of feminine gender.

Geesh Bobby, I used to excuse your off the wall comments because I understood this is not your first language. I guess you overt hostility takes away that excuse and exposes you for the person you are.

I find it interesting that the main part of your essay seems to be written in excellent form with good clear sentences and fine spelling. Your more personal comments degenerate in to the usual poorly chosen sentence structure and weird vocabulary you usually use. It makes me suspect you copied the good sentences from another source and did not have the intellectual honesty to quote your sources. The only other thing I can think of is that your broken language, vague similes and arcane words are done deliberately to cloud your lack of originality.

I used to think you were one of the good guys. Since you have decided to personally attack me instead of my opinions I am revising my estimate of your character.

A year or two back your were corresponding with me and did not understand a joke I had made. You immediately replied on this public forum that I was useless and was not worth talking too. May I request that you stick to that opinion and stop communicating with me.As far as I am concerned our correspondence is concluded.

Bobby, or it just pisses people off who have the intelligence and ability to compose a decent thought whilst remaining grammatically accurate.

In other words, if you're smart and can't compose your ideas on paper then perfect that as we'll.
