Two Different Truck Stories

Image
  Lazy Ass told me a short story of a truck driver, a Caucasian fella, whom he encountered when they were stopped at a traffic light a few weeks ago. He said that while they were waiting for green, he grabbed his phone to check, as this is today's addiction of the majority of the people! The truck driver yelled at him to put the phone down! He said that he could have gotten into a heated argument or possibly even a fist fight but let it go! A day after that I went to a London Drugs location to pick up a big item that had been ordered earlier. A tiny Asian guy from the store helped to put it in the back of the car as he believed it would fit! While we were struggling, I heard someone asked if we needed help. I turned and there was this Caucasian fella with both arms tattooed to the shoulder! He looked scary but I asked he much how would charge. He said: Nothing! And added that he just wanted to get something from inside and we would be heading to my place! I thanked him and with

It is too Freaking Late!

If this question ever comes to your mind: Who are the stupidest people in the world?  What would your answer be? I would candidate Canadian s as a possible correct answer! Why? Because they destroyed and keep destroying one of the most beautiful countries in the world by their stupidity and greed. In the so-called Lower Mainland British Columbia , the fool Canadian s destroyed half of the region by cutting trees and built houses and condominiums and selling them to Asians in a way that the population of Asian s is more than combined the Aboriginal s and Canadian s! If you could find any place in the entire world that people are as stupid as this, name it to me.  Apart from a little farming and a number of small technology companies, the only jobs available in Brit "SHIT " Columbia is logging, fishing, which is mostly fish farming and public services. The rest have to work like horses to make ends meat. Many work under-the-table jobs or some call it cash. Those shitheads ha

Bugaboo Provincial Park

Image
It's 5.5 months into 2021 and since the entire 2020 was wasted due to the stupid job I have and the pandemic, I decided to have another hike this past week. Although it's a bit early but my Mexican buddy agreed and we headed toward west on a cloudy morning on his pick up truck. That's what I like about this fella: He is not a silly cheap as*hole like a few that I have been to hike with. Our destination was Bugaboo Provincial Park in western British Columbia . So you get to Highway # 95  , southbound from Highway # 1 and get yourself to Radium Hot Springs . From that town you go north until you get to the small community of Brisco .  It is in that village that you need to get on a gravel road into the woods and drive up for almost 1 hour. If it had not been because his pick up truck, we would never have been able to get ourselves into the woods but the road got so bad that we eventually had to leave the vehicle truck and walk.  After nearly 50 minutes of driving in a n

The Immunization and its Troubles

Image
Just two days after everything went back to normal for me, after I got my first shot of AstraZeneca , I started to feel a sever pain in my right knee and the attached tendon. This was not new to me. I had that problem when I came back from our hike to Telescope Peak , more than 2 years ago. I hoped it goes away but the pain was so bad that I did not sleep for two days. I fact I slept for as little as 2 hours, two night in a row. Here I made a mistake. Instead of going to a clinic I went to an Urgent Care Center and ended up wasting nearly 4 hours there until being seen by a so-called Health Care Professional who happened to be a Nursing Trainee ! They didn't even bother sending a doctor to me and I wonder if that is a violation of my rights and if I should contact AHS . I explained the story and my history to her and she suggested to have Blood Work (Blood Test) to see if that is the sign of Blood Clot which is the main side effect of AstraZeneca and has caused people injury an

Bear Spary/Pepper Spray Experience!

Image
I bought a Bear Spray , I guess it was nearly 7 years ago from MEC . Never had to deploy during any hike. Just a couple of days ago I was packing for the second hike of this year and I said to myself: Why don't I see how the spray is and take it with me. So I grabbed it from my hiking item box in the garage and considering the fact that they say it expires (loses the pressure) after 3 years or so, I slightly pulled the trigger!  Bad mistake! The content was sprayed out with a slight touch and luckily I was not in the middle of the living room or in a bedroom and the dark orange material got on the wall and railing! That was not my only mistake! The second one was even worse! I know as a fact, from my training at the  CBSA College that when the pepper spray is discharged, the officer should not make any attempt to reach the subject because after the deployment there would be a poisonous cloud between the subject and officer, in my case, the wall and me(!) which is very irritating.

My New Machine!

 I have already written about my troubles with so-called bread(!) here in Canada and one solution that I have found. Now I have more options after buying this bread maker. It has a number of options and different recipes and since I only eat Whole Wheat Bread , I tried to use that option, which is option # 5, not that it is important or anything. Result? Not so good?  Why? Because I altered the recipe and that is why that the user has been warned about! It was not so bad but I cut salt, sugar, milk and any other ingredients rather than water, flour and yeast and the outcome was like a not very proportional middle-sized rock!  The taste was not too bad but I know now that it could have been much better. The good thing about the machine is you can add all of the ingredients to its container at night and when you're going to work in the morning, turn it on. Fresh bread, which is cooled off, will be ready when you are home.  The second time I used the machine the result was not much

Ryan Gosling's New Movie

Image
Many people know Ryan Gosling , the actor from London, Ontario . Many didn't like his performance in Blade Runner: 2049 but I liked it . He had a good performance and that's the only movie of him that I've seen so far plus First Man which is a biography of Neil Armstrong . It's an okay movie and interesting to the ones who have not read Armstrong 's biography(!), including me. His performance is okay, just like the way it was in Blade Runner: 2049 . So that's probably why many people don't take him seriously! With that said, it's in the news these days that he is portraying a young Taliban fighter who rises to fame for being outspoken and eventually becomes a local commander and creates a new branch of Taliban which disagrees with many of the fundamentals of the original group and ... I'm not going to spoil that. It's been said that it will be in many theaters in the US since the pandemic laws are loosen there, soon but I have no idea about

4 Days Later

  It's been 4 days now that I got my first doze of AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine. I feel completely normal now but the first day after the shot was horrible: I felt very tired and in fact fatigued. It was like a group of people had punched and kicked me for hours. My eyes were red and I had headaches coming and going. Lucky me that I didn't have to go on the day after the shot but the surprising thing was that it has been the easiest vaccine probably ever! If you have gotten a shot, compare it with mine and tell me which one has been easier: I went to a local pharmacy, which is only 3 minutes drive from my place and talked to a young girl who by the way was very nice and helpful. Unfortunately much younger than me or I would've asked her out! She added me to a list and that was it. On the day I was in the pharmacy at exactly the appointment time and filled out a small form which was basically accepting every risk associated with the vaccine. Then a guy came and had a litt

Did I Get It?!

Alberta now has the most number of infected individuals for every 100,000 people in the entire country. I'm not going to write the detail as it's available on the web but what's interesting is the number of people who still refuse to accept the fact that it's a deadly virus and get together for " Rodeo " or a " freaking stupid church service! "  Where and when, in the world, any religion has helped anyone that now helps a bunch of stupid losers somewhere in northern Alberta, I think in Edmonton or nearby!? With that in mind a came home a few days ago, perhaps after my massage and I had all sorts of bad physical feelings! I don't know what percentage of it was from the massage and what percentage was only illusion. With the cases going up and up every day, I think I'm eligible(!) to be scared! I will have to wait to see if there're any symptoms. Then will probably, probably(!), act upon it (Photo: This actually was not the first time I su

The Talkative Lady

Image
I went for a massage a few days ago, a medical massage, just to be clear, and I faced a very chatty lady from Eastern Europe . People of former Eastern Block are the unfriendliest people that I have encountered during all these years of living in Canada . Bulgarian s are generally crazy as hell! People of the former Yugoslavia , mostly, even worse! Russian s and Ukrainian s, the same. Romanian s, based on my experience, a little bit better but fall under the same category! This lady, with green eyes and dirty blond hair, laid me down and then after starting the massage, started talking by telling me where she was from, which Io won't reveal here to protect her identity! I have never had an experience like that! Perhaps because my masseuses have always been either Canadian s or Chinese !  Then she started about how she came to Calgary and then how she felt and stuff like that. That didn't make the massage more pleasurable because I had to respond and it was not really comforta
