Needs of the Many

Needs of the Many
Thursday — October 27th, 2011

Here in Toronto, members of the “Ford nation” fight the “war against cars” by hating streetcars as much as possible. Myself, I like streetcars. They block off lanes of traffic at stops, but downtown traffic is stop-go anyways. Irregardless, a streetcar has dozens of people in it, while a car is likely to have only one.

Anyways, the big news happening in Toronto is our mayor calling 911 when ambushed by comedians in the morning. Hilarity ensues.



Sponsored Post: NET10 50 bucks for unlimited.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Net10 True unlimited for 50 bucks a month.  I’m glad to see companies now are finally getting the message. Make stuff more affordable and you will get more customers.

We don’t have net10 in Canada but it seems like a good deal, compared to some of the other plans I’ve seen in the states.

What I like is that there are no contracts.  I really hate that companies lock you into a 2-3 year commitment.  Especially if they have a phone offer that will be obsolete by the time the contract is half way through.

I’ve opted to buy an iphone 4s, so unfortunately I have to stick with the big 3 in Canada, or it will be a fancy paper weight.

Net10 has a bunch of great phone from 15 bucks. And if you want to use internet there are phones that do that for 40 bucks.

Thanks net10 for trying to make affordable for all.

    DOWN WITH STREETCARS!!! They are built on the wrong lane of the road as they block all traffic. The stop should be either an island on the middle of the street or the streetcars should be on the right lane! I actually read an article that they were considering using the ski lift things for public transportation. Supposedly it’s working very well in some South American developing nation.

    oh don’t forget to mention that according to Ford, streetcars CAUSE polution.

    Well, I agree with the problem of having them in the left lane, but how would they turn left without awkwardly crossing other lanes of traffic?

    I like the ski lift idea, but it will be hard to keep tension on long lines.

    @Mayhem
    He’s the f*ing Mayor of Toronto, he can make it rain upwards.

    @taki314
    Good point, didn’t think about the turning radius. That’s why we need to remove them completely :P

Write something, I dare you...
