Just to complicate this, I've driven on plenty of highways with a single yellow line that allows passing in one, or both directions at certain places. It would make sense to have a double yellow where one side turns into dashed, but the second line just sort of appears when a dashed line is needed.

Woman Furiously Shits On Floor Of Tim Hortons, Throws It At Employees

Samer Kalaf


liveleak

A woman in Canada was so incensed about something Tim Hortons employees did or didn’t do that she dropped her pants, took a dump on the floor, threw it, grabbed some napkins to wipe her ass, threw those too, and left.

There is no pixelation in this sped-up LiveLeak video. You are going to see everything that this woman, full of rage and previously turds, does to forever sully the floor of this Tim Hortons located in Langley, British Columbia:

So, if any of you are drag fans...

Alyssa Edwards is performing in St. John's tonight. Straight from Drag Con in Los Angeles.

Video Link


Ben Delacreme is coming soon, so is Shangela. We've already had Manila Luzon, Bianca del Rio (a couple of days before she won Ru Paul's Drag Race), Detox, Tatianna, and more. Our promoters are doing a fantastic job. The queens almost always end up adding second and third shows while here because sales are so good - and we've gotten a reputation as a place that tips exceptionally well. I'm so thrilled. I still can't believe I don't have to go to NYC or TO to see these people.

In Ontario, that sentence is true, just replace the word "can't" with the word "shouldn't". It's more like we've simply decriminalized the behaviour.

Dashed lines to the right of a solid line means passing is safe and allowed, and dashed lines to the left of a solid line mean passing is unsafe but it's not illegal to do so, because traffic coming toward you is more likely to pass in this area. Our highways usually alternate the two, and use double lines only on corners or hills.

Then "can't" should be replaced my other words, like "may not", since of course you "can" break the law if you want, but you really "shouldn't". However, it really sounds like the law is nuanced differently then.

It's just not a punishable offense is all. Unless there is oncoming traffic, thick fog or it's on a curve, in which case you're engaging in a violation called "reckless driving", not "passing a double yellow line".

So, potentially criminal behavior is somewhat subjective.

pizza question. I've always had pizza like this with some colour on top, like a nice golden brown i guess.

like this


Do people form the maritimes prefer to have the pizza be white?

more like this


I Work with 2 people from the maritimes and they always cook the pizza so it comes out white, whereas I always cook it to go brown and they think its not right lol

Just a weird observation perhaps.

Maritimer here, and I prefer the browned cheese. I don't think I've ever really seen properly prepared pizza that white. (Lasagna has to be done the same way; not done till the cheese is brown)

Highway traffic rule violations are generally not "criminal" in nature.

ok, I don't know why these 2 people like it so white. But the one guy would say the first pizza pic was overdone
