Of course, the six-year-old orphan that she came to love “as her own” was left behind as soon as the shit hit the fan. Read more

Absolutely. Usually in theses kinds of contexts (I mean places where there is actually conflict and armed groups are active, not Zambia) the local population is at far greater risk for violence, sexual and otherwise, than any white voluntourist/humanitarian. I’ve done work where the presence of at least one “white Read more

Thanks, that was super informative! Beekeeping is really interesting. I still regret not taking the apiculture course offered at my university.

Ha, and here I would have guessed that any ethical concerns surrounding cabbage gas would be related to its production AFTER consumption.

While I'm certainly willing to examine the ethics of my food choices, I draw the line at feeling sorry for scallops.

Oh man, I used to answer phones for a charity that does aid work overseas, and three times over like eight months I had men call in to check and see if some woman they had met online really worked for us. The story would usually be that the potential love interest had been working in Africa somewhere, and something Read more

I’m in a riding that was liberal for almost 20 years, before going conservative in the last election. I was so so sure that we would be getting rid of Harper this time around, and now I don’t know. I can only hope that these latest poll results act as a call to action for every left-leaning person who wasn’t going to Read more

My sister was born quite premature - a few weeks farther along than your niece I think, somewhere in the 6th month of pregnancy. She is 100% fine more than 30 years later. It was a very scary time for my parents, but medicine has come a loooooooong way in terms of dealing with pre-term babies. The odds of a 24-week Read more

It’s legitimately depressing. Like, I don’t know what I’ll do if Harper wins again. I can’t stand the thought of it, and I can’t get my head around the idea that so many Canadians are willing to vote for him again. He’s an abomination. A sociopathic monster. How did this happen to my country??

Hooooooooly shit. That’s amazing. I saw that movie at far too young an age (I wanna say 11 or 12) and it has stayed with me ever since. The Zelda stuff made me feel physically ill. I watched it at a friend’s house, and they had this dank, musty old bathroom in the basement, with a full wall of cupboards, and I Read more

Heh, I was selling a piece of furniture on craigslist once, and was emailing with someone who was interested. We haggled a bit and agreed on a price, then made arrangements for her husband to come and pick it up. Right before the scheduled time, when he must have been already on his way, she emailed to ask if I would Read more

Eww, really? I don’t spend a lot of time downtown, so I am thankfully largely unaware of any PUA scene. I was kind of hoping that it was just two or three really dedicated dudes putting up the MRA literature.

What the hell is with Toronto and MRAs? I’ve seen MRA propaganda posted on Starbucks public message boards downtown on more than one occasion, and I took this picture on the train a couple of Christmases ago - if I remember correctly, it was a Salvation Army ad, asking people to donate to give a child food and warmth
