Re: The AirBnB and house hacking bubbles

@Bankai

Re: COVID-19

+1 COVID19 is a threat multiplier. It increases mortality-rates for everything. It even makes non-lethal problems worse. Now is not a good time to get a tooth ache, for example. What we're trying to avoid is going back to having a 1860s-style health care system for a while. One of the reasons is th...

Re: COVID-19

"All Covid-19 patients sick enough for hospitalization should be given a cheap, quick, and readily available serum ferritin blood test. Indeed, elevated serum ferritin values have recently been reported in Chinese hospitalized patients with Covid-19. This is a good first screening tool for the poss...

Re: Dumpster Diving

A community fridge is almost always placed in an public building/space so people are free to give or take food from the fridge, ideally 24/7. To put it in your front yard would not be the best option as you probably don't want a bunch of strangers coming to your place. Also, if you live with wild an...

Re: Dumpster Diving

Wow, that's a big baby (talking about the bear). When dumpster diving, it is good to have a personal code of conduct. To each their own but for my part I don't actually go inside the dumpster, instead I bring some tools so I can harvest what I want while keeping my two feet on the ground. Never comp...

I quite a very stable and well paid govie job after about 10 years there. Now when I meet my ex-colleagues at the grocery store they tell me how there...

Re: Dumpster Diving

Looks like the big box stores keep their bins locked or secured behind fences. Try the smaller shops or maybe even convenience store/dépanneur ? They seem to be more liberal about their garbage. I don't know if this is common everywhere but I found that chinese restaurants have a lot of food waste i...

Re: Dumpster Diving

I have been thinking about dumpster diving for a few years now but really got the courage to actually try it just about 6 months ago. I got even more interested after watching this fall the documentary "Just it eat, a food waste story" by Grant Baldwin and Jen Rustemeyer. There is a small grocery st...

Re: What are you eating today? Cooking inspiration!

I cooked chicken hearts last week. I usually don't really buy meat but I was intrigued and bought a small pack from the grocery store. It is also very cheap. You will usually find them along chicken liver. Cut all the hearts in two and remove the fat before cooking. I cooked them with a lot of chopp...

Re: Montreal Meetup - September 15

Well, I am back in the North. No frozen pipes in the house and a fresh dump of snow for skiing . Glad to have spent time in Montreal and also to have met like minded people. I also recommend trying to meet other people from the forum IRL, worst case it will be boring and you can just pretend your ca...

Re: Montreal Meetup - September 15

Sounds good. Tuesday at 6pm.
I will wear a purple jacket and the book. I think I look a little bit out of place here...
Looking forward to this !
Maybe try to think about subjects you are interested to discuss but really no pressure here.

Great !
Where and when ? I will leave it to you too for suggestions of places since I don't know the city very well anymore. Something close to a metro station would be appreciated. I will bring the book.

Re: Montreal Meetup - September 15

Alright. I just like to travel at this time of the year because the plane ticket is much cheaper and also to get a bit more daylight. Been living in the darkness since late November. It is a great mental break. Almost didn't make it, we are in the middle of a cold snap. I was careless yesterday and ...

Re: What is a "good" work ethic, and how do you sustain one?

@Colibri Yes, absolutely, you are correct. Actually, I searched on translation websites (linguee, etc.) to see how the term is translated, and I was surprised to see "éthique professionnelle" since I never, ever heard that expression in a conversation, nor have I seen it in print (I’m a french-spea...

Re: Personality Typing

Okay Daylen, you seems to be quite knowledgeable about personnality types.

Question: I am dancing between IFNJ and ISFP on MB's test. What does that mean ? In terms of not being fixed on one type and also with those two particular types ?

Re: What is a "good" work ethic, and how do you sustain one?

Funny enough, "work ethic" does not exist in french. We could translate it by something like "hard worker", but there is really no expression in use that conveys the whole meaning. I guess that tells something about work in America/the anglosphere (or about work in the francosphere?). Éthique profe...
