A place for Canadians.

Jul 23 ryanmm commented on Americans Don't Love McDonald's as Much as They Used To.
They raised the price of the double cheeseburger too much, and all at once. Had been a dollar for around a decade then went up 30%. That big of an increase, even on something so cheap, will have an effect.
Jun 16 ryanmm commented on Department of Defense Spends Millions of Dollars Researching Activists and Other "Social Contagions".
Governments the world over have a long history of keeping tabs on communists, fascists, and any other group with revolutionary aims. Don't see anything new or interesting here.
May 28 ryanmm commented on In Rare Public Stoning, Pregnant Woman Killed in Pakistan.
Rape culture is a fantasy of far left ideologues.

MRA/PUA culture and misogyny in general are real problems on the far right.

Anyone who believes in either of these ideologies is an extremist.

May 5 ryanmm commented on Here's What Seattle's Alaska Airlines-Branded Shareable Bicycles Will Look Like.
$8/day is a hell of a lot better than the relatively few bike shops that rent bikes. They're usually at least $30.

Still think this will fail, due in part to the local helmet laws. Hopefully people will be scofflaws and we can get it repealed.
Apr 25 ryanmm commented on Jamie Kilstein Tomorrow at the Highline.
I listened to his podcast for awhile, then dropped it after he called people who eat meat murderers.
Apr 10 ryanmm commented on Restaurateurs Had a Minimum-Wage Lunch Chat at City Hall Yesterday, and the Crowd Raged.
" Scott France of Pagliacci Pizza said they'd potentially raise prices 10–15 percent, add delivery fees of a few dollars, and consider eliminating the tip line from their receipts so diners wouldn't feel obligated to pay extra on top of higher prices."

If they do this I'm never going there again. And I really like their pizza.
Apr 1 ryanmm commented on Forget The Last Nine Years: How the How I Met Your Mother Finale Pissed Off The World.
I gave up half way through the 2nd to last season.

Judging by the reaction today that was a wise choice.
Feb 18 ryanmm commented on Irrational Games, Makers of Bioshock, Shutting Down.
I really liked the first one, thought the second one was ok, and played the third one for maybe ten minutes. Very boring. That series needs to go away 5 or 10 years and then come back with something fresh.
Feb 10 ryanmm commented on The Morning News: Activists Target Microsoft Shuttle, Plus Other Stuff.
When you protest working to middle class people who take buses to work you have run out of useful things to do.
Dec 31, 2013 ryanmm commented on Elysium, Boers, and Western Democracies.
The far right saw socialism is this movie, the far left sees something about Boers, I saw Matt Damon in a standard sci fi flick.
