Nothing motivates you better to go back to the grind of corporate work than 7 years of shitty diapers. I love my kids, but 7 years of diapers was enough. Much happier with a regular paycheck and a nanny.
Maybe your problem was leaving your kids in diapers until they were 7?
That's a little dramatic, don't you think?
Sweden is not alone in having an official body to oversee their lexicon - lots of countries do it. English is somewhat of an anomaly in that way, since, unlike most other languages, it's just kind of a big melting pot for everything else.
The only objective to ban plastic bags was to minimize the costs to supermarkets. It was a disgusting lobby with an "eco friendly" excuse. There is no chance in hell they will distribute paper bags or any non re-utilizable bag.
As with any generalization, you're bound to be wrong. The dominant supermarket chain around here (Victoria, BC) uses paper bags.
I remember when "everyone" was on MySpace, "Everyone" was there and nobody used "Facebook". Until one day
But "everyone" was not on MySpace. Facebook has 10x more users than MySpace had at the height of its popularity. It won't be as easy for Facebook just to disappear.
In Canada, does their Supreme Court make laws? Or did the court just interpret an existing law which will be quickly altered to void this inconvenient decision?
It depends on how you define "make laws". Technically, the legislature in Canada is supreme - they make the laws. Just like in the US. But all laws are subject to the Constitution and more specifically the Charter, which means that they can be struck down by the judiciary; i.e. Canada has de facto judicial supremacy. And of course, the common law is judge-made law, just as it is in every common law country.
But in this case, yeah, the legislature can just go ahead and introduce a new law that it thinks will pass the judicial test. That's how the system is supposed to work anyway.
