+Ryan Groten There aren't any real stats on plastic. Government hype and industry bullshit.
Most industry "experts' if cornered will concede it's maybe a wash.
I'm a fair "expert' of about 50 years and I think it's worse than that. All things considered, I think it's a losing game.
Take a hard look at the process and tell me your unbridled opinion leaving out all the crap you've been told. I mean really, take a hard fucking look at it.

+Jim Carver Yeah; I'm trying to figure out if there's stuff I can put in the sidebar that ought to follow you around. If not, I'll srow ze svitch (think German accent) and make the sidebar fixed.
There's other bits I'm looking at tweaking too, just as soon as I finish grading exams.

Wow! A concept I've also been using for a while, and didn't know it had a name...
For a long time, my CPB was just a text file on my most used computer (too much stuff to keep (and sort, and search) on a paper medium, and now it's a collection of notes on Google keep, so almost always accessible from almost anywhere.

+Roger Parkinson I started rolling mine and putting mint leaves and herbs in there.
I couldn't inhale when I was sick so I think the nicotine is nothing. I just like smoking. The natural pipe tobacco and mint is really pleasant smelling. I think all the stink comes from the processes they do. We had some contracts with RJR and I know they use an ammonia process to make the nicotine more addictive.

New theme on my blog. Thoughts?

The last one was dated 2014, and was, quite frankly, rather clumsy. This new one, called MagOne (http://themeforest.net/item/magone-magazine-blogger-template/12016203) is actually quite impressive, especially in terms of the support tools it takes advantage of for maintenance. It also loads a lot faster and generally works as advertised better.

Basically, it's night and day from the old theme. And I don't think it's because the old theme was just crap. I think it's because the whole web design/programming world has improved.

What a difference a couple of years make!

Introduction
I'm a design methodologist and Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada. I've been called long-winded, a meritocrat, a secular humanist, and a post-positivist, as if these were bad things. Go figure.

I'm verified 100% Humanist by the BHA Humanist Quiz.

Crappy part of town; incompetent staff. Got there 10 minutes early for a scheduled appointment. Only 2 people ahead of me. It took 45 minutes just to get called in. I have nothing against immigrants; indeed, I'm fully in favour of immigration. But when a receptionist at a _medical labpratory_ lacks the language skills to say "disrobe from the waist up," then there's serious problems. Then the technician - a gaunt and pale man who appeared to be suffering from some wasting disease - tore the receptionist a new one in full view of 3 patients (including me) for not telling us to fully disrobe. Then I was told it would be at least 20-30 minutes before my test. To hell with the lot of 'em.

Heaven for pen "enthusiasts." The staff have outstanding knowledge about all kinds of pens. They're very careful to ensure that you try every pen before buying it, even letting you choose the ink into which they'll dip the fountain pens. They also gave me a 'free' Pelikan ballpoint (with their logo) and a book about the most interesting historical shops of Milan (they're mentioned in it). They let me take a picture of their "pen vault" - literally a vault for pens.

Very modestly priced Pho. We started with a serving of chicken spring rolls, which were quite good; just the right amount of flavour. I had the chicken Pad Thai, which was a bit bland and greasy. Good portion size. My wife had a beef Pho. Too much gristle & tendon for our Italian sensibilities, but lots of fresh veggies and a nice broth. The service was fast and attentive without being sycophantic. The place itself was clean and well-lit. We were lucky to get a booth because they had these rather odd chairs that I'm not sure would be that comfortable.

Great food. But the service is so atrocious you'll barely be able to keep the food down. Example: We had a reservation for 13 at 4pm. It was my father-in-law's birthday. We were on time. We brought our own cake. They didn't take our order till 4:30 - not even the drinks! We then waited 40 minutes for the food, even though the place was only 1/2 full. It took them 10 minutes to just bring the food to the table. We were ravenous by then and were all finished in 10 minutes. We had to wait another 30 minutes for them to bring the cake and coffee. They didn't bring plates or cutlery for the cake, and we had to tell them that they had to cut and serve the cake. Another 15 minutes pass. And they look at you like it's your fault! The people who work at Desserts Plus are useless bags of skin. They are navel lint. They are pustules on the buttocks of the universe. I can imagine a masochist might enjoy Desserts Plus, but no one else will.

Teeny weeny restaurant; maybe a dozen tables. Often full up; make sure you make a reservation. The food is very good, but the menu was, I thought, limited and invariant. The service is a bit too posh for my liking, but all the staff (including the owner) is discreet, attentive, and professional.

Simple, inexpensive setting rather like a family restaurant but with a touch of creative chic. Like Queen St W used to be in the 80s. Great food; again simple at heart but everything has a special subtle twist. Very reasonable prices. Genuine, helpful, attentive staff. Perhaps a bit too attentive, but better too much than too little. Will definitely go back there.
