Edmonton's possibly getting an 11km lane for people to skate across their downtown core.

It would be pretty sweet to get that in Toronto, but there probably isn't any space to accommodate that downtown. It would also mean having to deal with winter in general.

The solution is obvious, combination bike/skate lanes.

Toronto has too many elevation changes. Skating doesnt work uphill. But it would be downright dangerous, crazy, and fun downhill.

If anyone knows where to get them at a physical store, preferably around Scarborough, that would be ideal, but I'm willing to buy online if there's no alternative.

Does Shoppers not have them?

I would bet Active Surplus on Queen West sells them.. though whether or not you'd want to put them into your mouth is another question. ;)

Slightly off topic, but that reminded me of someone; Do you guys remember GAFer JayDubya? He would show up in animal abuse threads and piss on everyone with his 'animals are property, you can do with them as you wish. There's no such thing as animal abuse.' schtick.

We had a cat living in our wood shed for a couple of years. We'd leave food out for him, but he was very skittish of people, so it took a long time for him to warm up to us. Eventually he became a (mostly) house cat named Snowball. But for years and years we would just call refer to him as 'White Cat'.

But I agree with Stet that the way Tory comes off seems a little shitty. It's probably just his failed attempt a humour.

I'll have to give this place a try since you endorsed it.

As for the Jays, believe you heathens!! real talk tho I doubt the additions they made can get us over the hump. We still got a hole in second base and our bullpen is decent at best.

Also fuck monster hunter. All I want is a Seregios Dissenter and it won't drop. Fuck this game. I just want to upgrade my weapon before I start hitting up the guild hall quests.

@Khao San
Been there over the years, it hasn't changed and I never liked it. After having good Thai food in Cali, KSR with the prices and presentation (plus that seating area eugh) is just a poor experience in comparison.

below is my fave thai place in SF, everything tasty and still more beautiful and less expensive than KSR per dish

For my money, Pai Northern Kitchen is the best Thai food in Toronto, and it's not stupidly priced

@Kuro, you say Thai Bistro in North York is good? I live so close to it but have never tried because the outside looks supremely sketchy. Might have to give it a go sometime

For the full experience, ask for a reservation - but don't say I didn't warn you...!

Hmm...ok will look it over.

Not sure if there is a better Thai place here and no, Salad King doesn't count...!

I've never been to KSR, only heard. Thai Bistro I have though and love it. Why keep going to KSR if you never liked it?

Thankfully winterlicious is over so things should be normal in restaurants like Auberge.

Certain non-azns I know keep thinking KSR and dragged me there, no matter how much I hate on their (bad) choices for mundane things like dumplings (why even). Nowadays I really make sure we go good places or if trying new it aint on my dime.

The good thing about Khao San Road is they are willing to make the food really fucking spicy if you ask for it. They have the option for white person spicy or Thai spicy. I've seen white people send back dishes they ordered mild there.



(not me though, I love spicy food)


anyways I refuse to eat there because it feels like a school cafeteria in there.. but I like getting take out.
