Oh, Toronto, how I love thee.

Wow, great photos! One of the best Toronto threads I can remember seeing on here. You captured the eccentricities & vibrancy of the city amazingly well. I can't believe it's been over 5.5 years since I was last in the city.

Wow ! Talk about your first post !

Ridiculous thread -- maybe one of the better ones this year. Thanks for the real glimpse into Toronto...sadly, I feel like its my first real look into it, because all of the other Toronto threads on here show crappy suburbs (!!); not any real urbanity or people.

Magical stuff, man -- feel free to post more !

Ya!!! Finally some awesome stuff out of Toronto on here. It's about time. Please keep it coming! You captured the city's off-the-charts ethnic diversity quite well. That's not so easy to do. Great job!

In Chinese the sign literally says "Glass is fragile, if you break it you pay for it" (no need for an exclamation point in the English--Chinese people use them a lot more freely and arbitrarily). But as a Chinese-to-English translator with a heart, I've gotta say that "Destroys Oneself Compensates" is postmodern poetry of the highest order.
