    [–] I can name a few games with this shit. Xenomech 6 points ago in funny

    An individual can destroy many, many more lives with fraud and treachery than he can with violence.

    [–] TIL Renowned concert pianist Krystian Zimerman's personal Steinway grand piano was confiscated when he landed in New York City to give a recital at Carnegie Hall. US customs destroyed his piano, claiming the glue smelled like explosives. Xenomech 232 points ago in todayilearned

    And the "explosives residue" was the soap from their bathroom

    Pro-tip: apparently the glycerin in most hand lotions will set off their detectors because Neutrogena hand cream = nitroglycerin = bomb.

    So, some airports are stocking their washrooms with soap that triggers the airport's own bomb residue sensors?

    [–] Incoming New Brunswick premier Blaine Higgs says he will treat taxpayers like customers Xenomech 6 points ago in onguardforthee

    Running the province like a business, eh? I guess that means there's a 40 to 50% chance the province will go under by the time his term is up.

    [–] The classic video game systems Xenomech 23 points ago in funny

    What the Atari 2600 lacked that the NES and SMS had was video memory.

    On the NES and SMS, a program could draw an image once into video memory, then have that image in memory easily displayed onscreen repeatedly for every frame of video.

    On the Atari 2600, a program had to create images onscreen by controlling the electron gun in the TV's picture tube while the electron gun was drawing the image on the screen...and it would have to do this line by line for every single frame of video.

    [–] Doctors' orders: Keep Manitoba's air ambulance service public Xenomech 4 points ago in Winnipeg

    My guess is that they want the federal government to take over these flights.

    Ah, yes. The ol' "privatize the profits and socialize the losses" trick.

    Lie #56,451,135 since 2016.

    That's 8:16 PM in "military time", right?

    [–] What is something you will never be able to tolerate? Xenomech 1 points ago in AskReddit

    No, it's more like Maybelline: you can pick it up once you get older.

    Chemtrails are just a false conspiracy theory they made up in order to take people's attention away from the fluoride in the water.

    Hey, if my kid wants to win when he plays ping pong against me, he's gotta practice.

    And when he finally wins a game, then he can hit me with the paddle for losing.

    [–] What is something you will never be able to tolerate? Xenomech 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Can I be sad and angry at the same time?

    Yes. It's called being 'upset'.

    But it's just so hard! They hide that little stick that you have to push to turn the blinkers on behind the steering wheel. I don't have x-ray vision!

    And you have to push it 'up' when you mean 'right', and 'down' when you mean 'left'... it's so confusing!

    And then people expect you to turn the blinkers on before you're going to turn? I mean, come on! I'm not psychic!

    [–] What is the best anti-joke you've heard? Xenomech 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Q: What's worse than noticing a worm inside an apple you've been eating?

    A: Being raped.

    Wow! That's real? The new Chevy Blazer looks fantastic!

    [–] Campfires and cannabis: Parks Canada says it's OK to smoke pot at campsites Xenomech 3 points ago in Winnipeg

    I'm happy it is legal so we stop wasting money/wrecking lives by putting people in jail over it

    This sentiment cannot be overstated.
