      Who? Where and when? I call bullshit on anyone who claims they were arrested for this… Unless there was something else to the story.  But - technically it is dishonest so maybe. What we don’t know is whether or not the police in these pictures get free drinks from the restaurant - I used to work security when I was in university, and we got free drinks at most places in town - including McDonalds…so accusing these officers of a crime without having all the facts is irresponsible at best and libelous at worst. You can’t just go and claim these officers are breaking the law if you don’t have all the facts. Haven’t you heard? Even police officers are innocent until proven guilty.

      I don’t like pork - not roast pork, pork chops, pulled pork, sausages… I can even say no to bacon - although I will eat it sometimes. Try telling people you don’t eat pork and it’s NOT for religious reasons. Blank stares every time. They can’t seem to grasp that I don’t like the taste of pork, and almost always say ‘that’s ‘cause you haven’t tried MY (insert pork related dish here)” … *sigh*

      We need to do more than just teach how to evaluate scientific facts (#9) … We need to teach kids (and adults!) to consider the source of all their information - everything from advertisers’ claims of the value of a product (4 out of 5 dentists recommend …) email and other types of fraud (the Nigerian prince or the home reno contractor…), internet hoaxes (fake Facebook “posts”), political claims (Trump) to “fake news”. People need to challenge the validity of all the information they receive so they can make informed choices.

      Her deal couldn’t be amended by then - so she served only 12 years and was never convicted of a sex crime. Paul Bernardo is in jail as a “dangerous offender” - which means he can be held indefinitely - as long as the courts consider him a danger to the public.  Then she chooses to stay in jail even though she could have gotten out after 2/3 of her sentence - because getting out after 2/3 time served means conditions and monitoring. She didn’t want that, so she stayed in jail for the full 12 years and walked out as free as you and I. No restrictions on who she can associate with, no limits on alcohol use, and she is not considered a sex offender. She has since gotten married, had sons and even volunteered at her son’s school!!!

      Karla Holmolka is an evil genius. First, she finds a man as equally fucked up as she is - remember, Paul Bernardo was a rapist before he met Karla, but he never killed his victims - even if they could identify him to the cops. With Karla, he began murdering his victims. She has a whole sickening relationship where she plays a very active role - picking victims, stealing drugs from her vet job, joining in on the rapes and torture, filming the crimes, and even helping dismembering Leslie Mahaffy and Kristin French.  Then when they get caught, she instigates a fight with Paul, who, true to scumbag form, beats the hell out of her. Visibly beaten, she goes to the cops to turn herself in. She plays the​ beaten wife role perfectly - the cops believed she was also a victim. She made a deal to testifty against Paul Bernardo in return for a light sentence. She agrees to 12 years for her role in the most henious crimes in recent history Once the deal is set in stone, the police come across the video tapes she made of the crimes. They show that she was definitely not a victim of Paul Bernardo - she was a full and equal partner in the crimes.

      It wasn’t an accident. They deliberately drugged her and as a result of the deliberate criminal offence of administering an illegal substance to a sleeping victim, the victim choked on her own vomit. That is not an accidental death, and they could have been charged with her murder. But neither Karla nor Paul were charged in relation to this death. They should have been, but the deal with the devil Holmoka took the option off the table. That doesn’t make this “accidental”, regardless of “intention”.

    • Smitin

      Worst part of the whole Karla Holmolka story? She only got 12 years, and served them all - rather than serve the standard 2/3 of the sentence with the last 1/3 out on parole. Being out on parole comes with mandatory restrictions - no booze, no drugs, regular meetings with probation officers, no communication with other convicted criminals…. To avoid being monitored upon release, she shrewdly served her full 12 years and got out with no restriction at all. She got out, changed her name, got married, and had sons of her own. She even tried volunteering at her kids school!!!  Oh - and she was never convicted of a sex crime. She is not a sex offender!!!  Sickening.

      What about weight gain? It’s not on the list and it is a huge problem for me. When I was prescribed a monster dose of amitriptyline (300 mg vs normal dose 30 mg) I gained 100 lbs over 18 months or so. When I stopped, much of that fell off with little effort.  And it drives me batty when I see characters in movies or on TV who pop a Prozac and it works right away. That’s not how antidepressants work. They’re not like Tylenol - they don’t have an immediate effect.  Also, there are some meds that actually cause depression - or at least, worsen it. Zopiclone (Imovane) does it for me. It absolutely totally works on my insomnia but makes me so depressed I have gone to the ER for emergency psychiatric care. More than once. But, since it also causes severe amnesia, I can’t remember why.  Meds mess with your mind. If you can, avoid them. But if you need them - just be aware of what you’re getting into.

      No. You can’t. That’s true. But tell me something… would you bring a loaded weapon into your house and hope for the best?  You can’t blame every gun for the actions other guns, right?  No - there are no bad guns - just bad gun owners.  You can love guns, respect guns, carefully maintain guns, learn how to use guns safely, and teach others about guns, but if you leave a loaded gun in your house and it kills your 3-week old, or your 6 month old, 8 month old, 6 year old… will any of that matter?  What if you do absolutely everything right - but your gun goes off and kills your 32 year old wife? Or you lose your 60 year old mother to an unanticipated discharge of your gun? Or your 65 year old, 76 year old, 82 year old or 90 year old grandparents?  “Every” gun didn’t kill them - YOURS did.  It may have been the result of neglect, or inexperience, or improper handling, or carelessness, or maybe there was no provocation - that gun you love so much just went off and you have no idea why… would you still want that gun in your house?  Or would you want to share your story about your gun and how it took the life of someone you love, so no one else has to go through the same horror? Or would you call for stricter gun control and/or more education about gun safety?  Ten lives have been taken so far this year. That’s more than one a month.  Most of those lives were from the most vulnerable sectors of society - children and the elderly. They didn’t choose to bring a loaded weapon into their lives, but they paid for it. One life lost to something like this is too many.  Ten lives were taken. Ten families mourn. (I’m assuming) Ten good, family dogs were put down for the crime of being the kind of dog they were bred to be. We can’t blame the dogs for being dogs.  There are no bad dogs, remember, only bad owners.  And while those owners are out there, showing the world just how wrong their opinions are, the facts remain the same. Those ten lives are still gone.  No. You can’t blame every dog for the actions of a few.  But why would you risk it??

      Nice play on words BuzzFeed. I don’t think there’s anyone out there - dog lover or not - who wouldn’t think pit bull PUPPIES aren’t very dangerous or threatening ….  But go ask the families of these people if they think that those cute little gremlins should be allowed to exist….  1.

      Wait… what? People in other countries leave their shoes on in the house?  And as for the people who think Quebec isn’t Canada - grow the f* up. You’re either very uneducated, totally clueless or you’re trolling for a fight. Or, maybe all three.  Go back to school. The people of Quebec have said that they want to be part of Canada twice already. How many more times will they have to say it? Separatism does exist - I can’t deny that - but it has lost it’s momentum. The last referendum was in 1995!!  Poutine is Canadian. And yummy.

      Can you believe that Karla Holmolka got the deal of a lifetime when she agreed to 12 years in jail in return for testifying against Paul Bernardo?  She claimed to be a battered wife… until they found the videos that showed she was VERY much involved in the rapes and murders of Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French.  And she served her full 12 years - no time off for anything, because getting out of jail before the end of her sentence meant that she still had to be monitored.  Instead, she served 12 years and got out without conditions, and no way to monitor her behaviour.  And was never convicted of a sex crime!!  Now, she’s married again and has children!!!  This woman is the face of evil.

      And they say “rape culture” is a myth! Every one of these guys are jerks - and some are dangerous. Go back and read this again, and imagine how you’d feel if they said this stuff to your mother. Not cool, right? They should be ashamed of themselves - but so should their mother, their family, their friends… anyone who hears this crap and doesn’t do anything about it.  We try to teach our kids tolerance and respect, but it’s clear that the message isn’t getting through. We tell our daughters to be vigilant. We tell them to watch their drinks at a bar because someone might put drugs in it. We tell them that no matter how much work they put into having a fit, toned body, they have to cover it up. We tell that they’re to blame if they get assaulted - they drank too much, they showed too much skin, they danced too provocatively, they went out alone, they talked to strangers…  Don’t you think it’s time we flip this around and start teaching our sons to respect all women - fat ones, skinny ones, old ones, tall ones…. not just their moms and sisters. Why not teach them that sex is not a team sport (unless consensual), and it isn’t a spectator sport either. Whenever I hear about another group of drunk guys violating a drunk girl

      Katie let me dumb it down for you. I AM healthy and I AM obese. It’s not just about what my blood work says. My joints and internal organs are just fine, thank you. In fact, I’d put my health stats up against yours ANY DAY, so you can see what real HEALTHY women look like.  You may have a better BMI than I have - but that’s just a number, honey. A healthy individual has a healthy spirit, outlook, attitude and mind too. Healthy people have healthy relationships, and a healthy sense of self-confidence and self-worth.  It is very clear that you have some significant issues with your spirit, outlook, attitude and mind. You probably have unhealthy relationships, and you definitely have significant problems with your sense of self-confidence and self-worth, since you seem to feel it is your responsibility to champion healthy body weight in a forum about healthy body acceptance.  What you fail to realize is that in your tiny little body exists a tiny little brain that doesn’t even have the ability to grasp the concept of what TRUE health looks like, and a tiny little heart that will NEVER know or give UNCONDITIONAL love.  I feel so very sorry for you Katie. Beauty is what beauty does. You, my height/weight appropriate little friend, will never see the true beauty that is in this world - and that is so sad.  Go live your “healthy” life, Katie, and let the rest of the world live theirs. You have no idea just how much you don’t know about life, love, and beauty - so it’s time for you to stop pretending you know anything at all.  You’re ignorant and don’t even know it. How stupid is that???

      Check with MY doctor. He will tell you that this plus size woman has excellent blood pressure, normal cholesterol levels, not even a hint of diabetes or “pre-diabetes”. I don’t have back pain, cancer, heart disease or asthma. My body weight has not cost you one penny more in medical costs than yours has cost me. I am
      significantly healthier than a smoker, drinker, or drug abuser. MY doctor will tell you that. I am HEALTHY.  What isn’t healthy is how you insist on making assumptions and judgements about people that you know nothing about. I think maybe you should talk to YOUR doctor about that. You just can’t lead a healthy life when you’re this ignorant. Any doctor will tell you that it isn’t healthy to walk around with an air of superiority, thinking that you know how to live life and be healthier than the next guy.  My world has room for the sanctimonious ignoramuses, now make room in yours for the healthy fat people and you’d be surprised at what we can accomplish together… when we start looking for similarities in each other - not differences.

      Everything you’re saying about endo is correct BUT women should also know that endo can be painless as well, and even relentless and debilitating cramps aren’t necessarily a sign of endo.  Endo is a complex disease and we still aren’t even 100% sure what causes is. One theory is “retrograde mensuration” - meaning that the uterine lining that we are supposed to shed monthly doesn’t always leave the body. Some of it backs up and finds something to attach onto - and then, the next month, it responds to the changes in hormone levels exactly like it would if it was actually still in the uterus - which means it thickens and bleeds.  When this happens in some locations, it can be painful, and it can cause webbing and scar tissue to form, which can also cause pain. BUT NOT ALWAYS. It is literally different for every woman. For some women, their first clue is infertility. Other women can have it and never know they do - no pain and no infertility. It just depends on where the patches develop.  Also, it is important to know that extreme pain doesn’t mean severe endo. Stage 1 endo can be more painful than stage 4. Again - it is different for every woman. Severity of pain is not indicative of the severity of the disease.  So, PLEASE, see your doctor if you are concerned that you might have endo. DON’T wait. Endo is unpredictable - make a list of your symptoms and take them to a doctor - preferably a gynaecologist. Things like pain on the days just before you start your period, constipation, diarrhea, low back pain and painful sex are all symptoms of endo. Your doctor can ONLY definitely diagnose endo with a laparoscopy - an operation where they cut tiny holes near your belly button so they can put a camera inside and see what is going on. It is day surgery - you go home the same day, with only a bandaid on your incisions. It is the ONLY way to be 100% sure.  I had 7 laparoscopies for endo - then a BSO (bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy: the removal of the ovaries and Fallopian tubes only - leaving the uterus). I guess that would make me an expert.

      Pouding chômeur DOESN’T HAVE MAPLE SYRUP in it!!! It is “poor man’s pudding” and made with a caramelized sugar syrup poured over a white cake batter BEFORE it is cooked - meaning the cake rises through the syrup, which settles on the bottom.  Maple versions do exist, but real pouding chômeur doesn’t have, or need, maple syrup anywhere near it.

      Ignorance is bliss, isn’t it?

      No one is talking about slaughtering any dog. Existing pitbull owners can keep their animal. No dogs will be put down arbitrarily IF this ban is upheld. Like the ban in other places - the province of Ontario, for example - existing pitbulls are “grandfathered”, which means they are legal. You just can’t breed nor import more pitbulls into the province.  If you took a second to get the facts, you wouldn’t look so stupid.
