@5, luckily in Canada most civil trials are by judge only - no jury. If one of the parties wants a jury, they have to pay for it.

@3, former british colonies didn't outlaw lesbianism for the same reason England didn't. Colonies adopted the British laws, and since Queen Victoria didn't believe women would do that she refused to sign a law that outlawed homosexuality. Instead, the law was changed to outlaw buggery.

The things you learn in law school (in Canada, currently still a British colony)

My husband says this rule is "no low blows". The wife can help, but only by punching above the waist.

@1, it perpetuates societal fears about a dangerous black man, which reinforced negative stereotypes some people have.

You know what's better than a sympathize button on a post that someone's grandma has died? Leaving a fucking comment telling the person you sympathize.

stupid store = Real Canadian SuperStore. It's a giant grocery store with housewares, small electronics, and toy departments.

No idea why some people call it that, but they do.

@3, it is indeed possible! Apparently a lot of people who would benefit from this don't do it because of hte "ick factor", ergo a "a robotic gut called RePOOPulate". http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/2013…
