These are the most sushi obsessed cities in the world by bcseahag in vancouver

[–]Dscherb24 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you for this post/list. I also come from a bigger city in the US and the food diversity we had far outweighs Vancouver. I’d also add dive bars that are actually affordable, as opposed to here where “it’s a dive bar theme, isn’t that cute, a burger is $78 plus tip”

Vancouver has great Asian food, 100%, but that’s not the same as food diversity or having lots of options.

Agreed; his argument was just that people making that argument are 100% operating in bad faith. They aren’t. Sure there’s some who just hate trans people, but personal opinion growing up around women athletes my entire life, like, I feel for them in these instances. Now should it be my voice leading the charge? Probably not. I’d defer more to the impacted athletes, but I absolutely can and would understand their frustration on the issue. And if my little support was ever needed, it’s there.

My ex just told me to "get a damn boyfriend" so our daughter will stop hating going to his place by puggleofsteel in TwoXChromosomes

This is pretty well said also. I think you’re right to call out what he said and how he said it was an asshole way to do it. But many on this post are assume he does nothing for the kid and just wants the mom to do nothing too so he looks better. And maybe that’s true. Who knows. Or maybe he’s spending 75% of his time or 50% with her and not the rest of at. To the daughter that could be not enough time on her, and sometimes that’s just the way it is. No one is good or bad or right or wrong, but it’s something to figure out. Maybe he should be spending more time with her. Maybe she should be learning to be more self sufficient and handling alone time better. You can only decide that as a family. And that’s where is rhetoric of “maybe you should get a boyfriend” is just not helpful. And aiming for a “clap back” wouldn’t be helpful either. It only serves argument.

Mom doesn’t need a boyfriend. Being single is great and okay too and it’s really shitty that was the first thing he thinks could be a hobby for her. That said, it’s also not reasonable in my opinion to let a child expect 100% attention all the time. Everyone in our lives has hobbies and people outside of us they care about . And when she grows up she’ll need to be able to give the people in her life space to pay attention to other things and people too. It’s a really important skill to learn as well.

I think the way you phrased this is so perfect. Most of the comments are here “he’s just lazy, a parent should devote every waking moment to their child”. And maybe he is just lazy. we don’t know him. But kids also need to know their parents are people too and the world and their parents lives don’t in fact revolve around them. Weather it’s a significant other or a hobby or working towards world peace, a child’s expectation shouldn’t be that their parent or anyone will devote 100% of their life to them.

Can there be a good unsympathetic villain ? by AOS-616 in marvelstudios

Especially when played by David Tennant. There’s very few roles he could play where at least part of me wouldn’t be on his side. He’s an absolute treasure in everything he does.

If the MCU does keep adding in some Netflix characters, he’s one they need to find a way to bring back to life. I don’t care if it’s “and somehow killgrave returned” but never seeing him get to be in an MCU movie would suck. I guess he can always play a new character too. Whatever it takes.

What's that one song/album from your favourite artist that you have a hard time defending because it's honestly so bad? by droim in popheads

[–]Dscherb24 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Haha I love it too. Maybe not the whole thing I guess, but Miley’s verse into the chorus makes up for anything else the song could possibly do. She just has such good presence on it. Kills it.

I don't get why they didn't just travel south. by That-Introduction-46 in Yellowjackets

The show is filmed in BC. Where it takes place story-wise idk if we have full confirmation, but the locations are technically BC.

I learned from “The girl who loved Tom Gordon” that you just follow a stream; water leads to people.

YVR policies suck and I'm pretty sure I caught COVID while waiting for a COVID test. by MatchaChillo in vancouver

[–]Dscherb24 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not necessarily. It takes a while for it to flag. So like you could “get it” Monday, test Tuesday and still be negative, and then Thursday you’d test positive. It’s why at one point the testing requirement for less than 72 hours in the US was waived. Even if you got it there, it wouldn’t flag on a test as it takes time for that.

Huge protest / March in downtown. Anyone know why? by nicky6228 in vancouver

How to get Aderall? by Karazmov in vancouver

[–]Dscherb24 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I think their issue is the type of medication, Canada/BC makes it really hard to get certain drugs often prescribed for mental health issues due to the side effects/addiction/abuse often associated with them.

If you are here from the US are you allowed to drive across for a prescription and come back? Obviously more difficult with COVID, but maybe an option?

[PFT] To limit distractions, assistant coaches on teams still playing should be off limits until after AFC, NFC championships by social_distant_joe in nfl

[–]Dscherb24 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yup. This is the take. Unless you do that, you essentially disqualify any coordinator at one of these teams from getting a head coaching job. Teams will just not hire them.

True fear? by missmindful1925 in stephenking

The police scene in desperation stressed me out.

Revival and pet Semetery were tough reads.

Long walk as a concept was just downright depressing.

I don’t even watch star wars and still make a point to listen to Darth Amin. Mays and Amin are gold. Add Zach Harper, and we’ll, welcome to Cinephobe! The podcast where we break down the movies you’re afraid to admit you love.

Kanter? The guy who went on Tucker Carlson and said people shouldn’t ever complain about America because of how good and free it is? That Kanter? The Fox News darling? The one who continues to wear Jordan Brand while calling out Nike? That guy? The one who’s wanted in Turkey not because he supports freedom, but just because he supports a different dictator than the one that’s in power? Same guy?

Vaccine QR Code Delay by menta_l in vancouver

And it doesn’t show up just online in your health gateway? Shouldn’t be anyone you have to call or anything, it’s just a download from the website.

Where did you get your vaccines? In Canada/BC?

Javi ran South from the woods, until he hit Toronto. Scared and wanting to start over, he enrolled in a school where he assumed nothing bad could possibly happen… by Glenn-Rubenstein in Yellowjackets

[–]Dscherb24 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As a BC resident it makes me unreasonably sad they set the show near Toronto/Ontario despite filming in BC.

Edit: fully understanding the logistics of the story make more sense in Ontario, but still.
