Actually no.

I just hate it when U.S. companies have to barge into Canada and throw perfectly good brands in the Recycle Bin like that. Our country is too Americanized. But I too am shocked that they allowed this redundancy to last so long, plus how abrupt it was.

Thank you for perpetuating the old joke that the Canadian national identity is based on Maple Syrup, Hockey, and 'not being America.'

A couple of days ago, a Christian musician family in Phoneix (I think) went obviously nuts and engaged in a massive firefight with police in a big box parking lot they were camping in. Their entire repetoir was about Jesus coming and the End Times - and I'm guessing, since they were all armed, they were the US Government-Obama-is-Satan cultists that are extremely pervasive in the Confederacy (the West is just the suburbs of the Confederacy, has been since the end of the civil war). We have a gigantic armed cult of doomsdayer Dominionists dispersed throughout the country, and the FBI taskforce that monitored it was taken down at the insistence of Congressional confederate Republicans. Our loonies wear ties and Glocks and praise Jesus and fear the negro President. Not even a little bit hyperbolic.

'5, Interesting' is a high score for bullshit.
I know you leftists hope and pray that every new mass murder is a right-wing terrorist attack. You must be constantly disappointed that nut jobs with leftist sympathies and Islamists are doing the actual killing.

And, much like Comdex of old, another convention that has been a part of CS for years, has to fold due to low attendance.

The RSA convention downfall seems to be 100% attributable to last years rules forbidding Booth Babes. That combined with 2016's proposed "no more free trinkets and TShirts" rules sealed the deal on the once mighty security convention.

With Jeb Bush about to become the nominated leader of the party? Good luck with that.

I don't honestly see Jeb as having that much a chance, at least not if it were done today.

That Bush name is a serious impediment....and there are some other candidates that many like better than him.

I also think there are a lot of folks in the US that just do not want another dynasty name in there, no more Clintons or Bushes.

Your previous method - chop a pile of onions - throw them in the pot - go to the next ingredient. New method - chop a pile of onions - weigh them - throw them in the pot - go to the next ingredient.

Is it really that much more difficult?

Do you have a suggestion for a scale that is handy to use and read, and can handle large amounts, or large items, etc?

He keeps differentiating, flying off on a tangent.
