    This Toronto diner has been going for a long time...

    Since 1955, apparently.

    Our neighbour across the street had been running his father's diner in downtown Waterloo until he retired a few years ago.

    It opened in 1930. It is still running with the same name and similar style under new ownership.

    I originally posted this in the Art Appreciation forum, but I donít think anybody goes there, so Iíll just repost it here:

    Looking for a good telescope or powerful camera that I can use to zoom in on the moon and planets. I know the Nikon P900 is a popular one. Anyone know of any good cameras/telescopes around $1,000.

    Why $1,000? Well, that is how much weíre looking to spend on my birthday in a few weeks.

    My son got a (real) job this year and said he wanted to buy me a pair of Yeezys. Of course Iíd pay for half. The only ones I liked were around $1,000. Then I realized that paying that much money for shoes is kind of a waste and generally stupid. I thought why not put that money toward a drone or a telescope (or really powerful camera)?

    He reluctantly agreed. His scheme was to get a pair of Yeezys so he could wear them too, considering our shoe size is now the same.

    Drone is out of the question. Too many regulations exist now around those. Itís gotten to the point where you almost have to get a pilotís license to operate one. So fuck that. That leaves a telescope/camera, something Iíve always wanted. Of course I live so close to the city that itís next to impossible to get a clear and proper view of the night sky. But we do go up to Blue Mountains every now and then which is awesome. I want to see, with my own eyes, the planets and galaxy in all their glory.

    So any recommendations?

    Look at Trump supporters for a prime example of that.

    I don't read Sports Illustrated, and never really pay attention to it, other than the Swimsuit Issue....however this is part of a larger problem in modern capitalism.

    Sports Illustrated lays off half of its staff, to replace them with contract workers instead.

    And an eloquent tweet to go with it:

    @Patrick_Wyman

    Trying to imagine living in a world that wasn’t just the richest, dumbest assholes stripping down profitable, viable businesses for parts like scavengers in a post-apocalyptic wasteland going after a Chevy Nova
