It's a heart-warming whale tale!

The orca was identified as T69E, a member of Transient Pod T69. Four other pod members remained in Squally Channel during the rescue.

Anyone else feel the room drop out from underneath them looking at these?

In today's #EastVan  Garbage Watch, I attempt to crunch some numbers and find exactly how bad #Vancouver 's abandoned garbage situation is.

Spoiler alert: I have no idea.

#garbage   #EVGW  
Sixty percent of illegal dumping calls come from East Vancouver—is anyone all that shocked?

Not a joke: Christy Clark actually tweeted this, then defended it. The political arrogance—not to mention racist undertones—disgusts me.

Friday's edition of East Van Garbage Watch catalogues your average filthy Vancouver bus stop.

Today's entry is much more emblematic of Vancouver's garbage problem: namely, random shit strewn on the sidewalks.

If the aliens are out there, these scientists are gonna find 'em! (Maybe. This is not a guarantee.)

It is the largest scientific search for intelligent extraterrestrial life in history.

Just say no to opportunistic photo opportunities.

I am neutral on the yoga of it all.

Even though I wrote this years ago, it's getting a lot of attention right now. So watch! Watch the anti-Harper ad CBC refuses to air!

Because intelligent discourse and free thought should not be muffled by our federal government.

Introduction
This is not the Miranda you're looking for. Unless you're looking for a misanthropic panda enthusiast who likes slandering kittens and leaving parties when your back is turned.

Things that have been said about me and my writing: 

"This might be the dumbest thing I've read...today."

"Miranda, it's sad that people like you are given a voice in any type of publication, let alone a magazine so vested with the cultural interests of an entire city."

"The Georgia Straight at the best of times is a provincial rag, not exactly “The Economist”….. :)…. and taken no more seriously than the silly statistics pulled out of her undoubtedly pink purse by Miss Nelson who took Statistics in her Home Economics class at grade school. Pseudo feminist claptrap at its worst lol!"

"I’m glad this is filed as a ‘blog’, because this would be some of the worst ‘journalism’ I’ve ever seen otherwise."

"Her epitaph will read, "Shoulda stayed in school"... or at least taken a 100-level economics course."

"What an incredibly whiney, self serving, joke of an article."

"miranda fuck off"

"This article is a joke. Miranda, you are the a-typical passive aggressive Vancouverite, who would rather PRINT A NEWS ARTICLE about something that irritates you, instead of politely engaging a person and expressing your point of view. SMDH"

"wow, good thing we have Miranda to tackle such a pressing social issue. here i was worried about global warming. Thanks for pointing out what is really important. Also, to any students having trouble falling asleep, i suggest you read Ms Nelson's writing. Definitely put me to sleep"

"Sounds like the writer hates life...deal with it and quit being a baby. There are plenty worse things going on out there, and here you are being a baby. Seriously, you're being a baby. Baby."

"You should be ashamed of yourself, whoever you are. You're probably some 50 year old single woman who's bitter toward young people."

"This women is such a spoiled little brat"

"You are a nasty old fartbag."

"Miranda needs to control her obsessive PMSing and maybe seek therapy"

"Miranda Nelson is a fucking bitch"

"You deserve to be homeless. You hold a have a bachelors of bitch degree. Everyone who wasted their time reading this hopes you will rot and die. You will be homeless again. You will lose everything. Because society rejects people like you. Its my birthday today. I am having a blast."

"Miranda Nelson, pull that stick out of your ass. That The (Georgia) Straight would put their name on this drivel of a post shows how far (down) the outlet has become. A once proud source of alternative culture is now just regular, boring mass-media."

"Who let the right winger write this blog in this paper? Also whom is this person sleeping with to sneak their way in here."

"Clearly the OP had a major in psychology and her parents paid for her during university study."

"You are selfish and unsympathetic."

"you amuse me on how ignorant you really are."

"God pixels are cheap if this kind of whining rant is deemed column-worthy. Grow up and brush off your first world problem, Miranda."

"She should probably be fired for this so she can work at starbucks"

"Get mental health help."

"Miranda is cranky because working as a crack blogger for the GS doesn't actually pay enough for her to drive a BMW."

"Miranda, you are so damn out of touch with reality it's hilarious."

"You heartless b*tch!"

"someone forgot to take their medication"

"'fuck off with your first world problems idiot.'"

"one sentence in i realized you are rediculously full of shit. have a fun life ignorant women."

"I have a feeling that you are either A: overly entitled, B: on dissability or welfare and dont understand the daily grind. or C: just a women who was in a bad mood"

"She displays virtually no journalistic integrity whatsoever and responds to being called out with snark - a tool a 5 year old might use as effectively, "

"Must be a lesbian, man-hating feminist. Quite a ray of sunhine, aren't you?"

"shut up already, we get it YOU'RE A FEMINIST. Sorry someone called you beautiful and LOOKED AT YOU, your life must be real difficult. If only you had some soapbox to complain while standing upon...oh wait you do. If you want to die old and alone, this is how you die old and alone."

"You are so lame. Your fellow feminists should be ashamed."

"the sooner Miranda Nelson is gone, the better"

"you're a lonely old slag"

"I'm quite surprised that someone like Miranda Nelson would post this and ask such a dumb question, considering most of her columns demand that we respect women regardless of who they are. I see a complete lack of respect in this column and hopefully Miranda Nelson will mature to a point where she can let people have their moments without feeling the need to judge and humiliate them. Miranda Nelson is a classic jerk!"

"shut up cunty."

"Has to be the lamest and stupidest piece of class warrior reading I have ever come across."

Things that have all been said by one obsessed guy who constantly comments on anything I write:

"you are an idiot and every time you comment, I cringe!"

"Can you stop posting? Everytime i read your crap posts, i lose eff'n brain cells!!!"

"Praying GS cuts back jobs there so we don't have to read her crap anymore. Omfg I can't believe she works there, must not be hard to get into the GS then..."

"If i had one wish it would be for you to stop posting and your position cutback due to the economy..." 

"God everytime i read Miranda Nelson posts...
I lose brain cells. When is the GS doing cutbacks so they can lay off people like her?."

"Oh wow, a Miranda Nelson post??. More brain cells to be lost!! was this just to boost your already inflated ego or something? Sigh @ the GS... More people would read your site if you didn't hire such shitty workers."

"Sigh @ you and your posts as we all lose brain cells when we read them...obviously you're too stupid to realize that...And you suck MN. End of story."

"She still works at the GS? I feel sorry for her co-workers..."

Things that have been said specifically about my breasts:

"Miranda Nelson, please stop being angry because you do not have hot enough tits to display in public."

Things that have been said specifically about my vagina:

"...could you please try to fuck some empathy or compassion into yourself? You know, rather than just flogging that dead, lifeless hole."

Possibly the worst thing anyone's ever said to me: 

"I am going to rape you and your mother infront of you. I will kill your family, I am going to bomb your house"
