    Clipper: “So I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful manner by saying no.” My philosophy and ethics professor just started spinning in her grave.

      According to my horoscope, I don't believe in horoscopes. …I'm not sure how to get out of this one.

        @victorp To tell you the truth, I don't know much about Toronto's tech scene. Lots of industry here, though—plenty of enterprise opportunities, especially in the finance/insurance/services sector.

          I'm having one of those days in which everything I touch blows up. On a related note, time to turn on the BBQ.

            Apparently, all of Toronto has decided that today would be a great day to sharpen their ice scares.

              According to the Mayan calendar, 2013 will definitely be the year I finally reach Inbox Zero.

                @isaiah @dalton the two aren’t incompatible. My son enjoys the models because they present an attainable goal, then smashes everything down and makes his own creations. It’s less frustrating when they show you what can be achieved first.

                  @fcy Oh, as a hobby, definitely. I've owned a semiprofessional espresso machine for many years—the last one broke after making around 10,000 coffees in two years :-)

                    @fcy No, but my mom was for many years—she owned a bar in Italy. She taught me a lot about trying and trying until you get things right.

                        It seems that people who post reviews on Yelp can be divided in two categories: Those who are grateful they’re not eating at McDonald’s again, and those who are disappointed the maitre’d couldn’t surgically remove the stick from their colon.

                          I don't know if it's just wishful thinking, but the average quality of ADN conversation is still well below the “unsupportable” threshold. I wonder how long that's going to last.

                            I've had it with these stupid 200MB-per-issue iPad periodical development tools. I'm going to make my own. With blackjack! And hookers!

                              I certainly don't mean to say that the Beatles weren't an important milestone in the history of music, but at what point do we finally admit that they're just being milked for money at this point?
