  1. "I intend to show you that at the time of the events, he was not criminally responsible," Magnotta's defence lawyer Luc Leclair told a Montreal courtroom on Monday. Under Section 16 (1) of Canada's Criminal Code, a person cannot be found criminally responsible "for an act committed or an omission made while suffering from a mental disorder that rendered the person incapable of appreciating the nature and quality of the act or omission or of knowing it was wrong."

    Nice! Happy Birthday!
  3. Expressing relief from across the pond. Not just because I think it is right, but also because things might have become insufferable over here in fairly short order (#QuebecIndependence).
  4. I did a search and couldn't find a reference to this anywhere else; I'm admittedly not too good with the search feature, however. Cool 1923 (ish) motorcycle:
  5. Making headlines here with one of our two national papers. There is some validity in comparing the Scotland situation to the separtist movement in Quebec here in Canada. If its any consolation, the polls showed a possible "yes" (separation) victory for them in 1995; the result was "no", though it was close. I have noticed a trend in recent years of polls being notoriusly unreliable. I wonder if sometimes these polls really motivate the side who is predicted to "lose".

    The Canadian Lancaster (VRA) is known as the "Mynarski Memorial Lancaster". The story behind its namesake is truly remarkable: (The following is stolen from Wikipedia, but accurate as far as I remember the story; Brophy and Mynarski had been both the most unlikely, yet best,of friends) "In the aftermath of D-Day attacks on 12 June 1944, Mynarski (upper mid gunner) was aboard KB726,[4] taking part in the crew's 13th operation, a raid on northern France. They reached their target at midnight, Tuesday 13 June. After encountering flak over the coastline and briefly being "coned" by searchl
  9. I've had a couple of these approaching Toronto. All one really sees is a bright green light, and of course the temptation is to look at it; as long as you resist that temptation and direct your eyes below the glareshield then it's a non-event. One then has to try and determine the source location so that ATC can be advised and they can alert the authorities. Apparently people have been caught.
  10. Just like a German to find beauty in ugliness, just because it's practical ! And That's a King Air 200, G-Man, not a 1900C. IMO, the 1900C is almost as ugly as the D: I do agree, though, that Mad Max plane is UGH -LI- ER, but I should still get points for the 1900D. Right, John? John? ...
  11. Currently circulating on Facebook:
  12. The D is all the more ugly considering the handsomeness of its progenitor.
  13. The Beech 1900D is pretty ugly:
  14. Brutal. A mistake, or negligence? On the other hand, this is one of those instances where one can take pause and decide how much fun can be had with the dealership. For example, you could drive the car to the dealership, talk to the service advisor under some nonsensical pretext, and then casually ask if any of the mechanics might, perchance, be missing any brake pipe clamps? And by the way, could they please check an odd clunking sound coming from the rear of the car? I am certain others could come up with even better, more devious fun...
