    Is that patio located in 1973?

    You'd practically have to go out of your way in today's day and age to not keep up to date.

    Not just that, but back in '73 you could sit outside on a patio and not worry about getting burned alive by the sun.

    Investment advice (may be too soon for us, but perhaps for your kids): Buy beachfront property in Hudson's Bay in the next 10 years; in 20 years it will be the new Caribbean.

    Sure, if you believe in global warming ozone depletion.

    fyp. It's different. Nod

    It's all poppycock, either way. Vertigo

    Ha. The science of global warming has been questioned extensively. I've never heard anyone (up to this point) that disagrees with the science behind ozone depletion (a measurable phenomenon).

    Yep. Back in the '70s I spent quite a few summers working at a camp in the Laurentians. Back in those days people would apply tanning lotion to *tan more*. One summer I was lifeguard, and one week I had 8 hours on duty every day. No hat, no sunblock, no problem. Things have definitely changed and, you're right, w.r.t. getting burned it is all about the ozone layer and not global warming -- however the two go hand in hand as the ozone layer depletion is a contributing factor to global warming.

    True, but global warming has nothing to do with the ozone depletion. My point was that he was using disputed science (GW) to refute uncontested science (OD). They go hand-in-hand when you're considering GW, but, in a discussion about OD (especially as it relates to an increase in UV rays and burnt skin), there's no real need to bring up GW.

    Just got my first text from TSN. It seems Justin Schultz has signed with EDM. I guess there'll be a lag between info hitting the twitter scene and reaching my phone. Still, getting confirmed news is gonna be sweet.

    Next, I bet you'll tell me that there's some solid evidence behind evolution!


    I'm just kidding (I'm trapped at work) as a way to amuse myself. Although I am a fence sitter about GW, OD is undisputable as you say.

    Scary thing (for me) is that I didn't even notice it.

    I bet we go all out on Garrison and sign Latendresse for cheap.

    Top-4 D, Top-6 F at a Melnyk approved price. Not ideal but doable.

    Makes sense actually. We need Garrison or Carle or someone of that ilk though.
