Wait! Isn't Toronto an entire country on it's own? Like the Vatican?

toronto may as well be it's own province, then they wouldn't have to share with those poorer municipalities.

1:49 you assclown, Toronto only has balanced budgets because the province steps in and gives it a cheque every year. Where would its money come from if it became a province and had to assume health care costs and the like?

Ahh, but then they'd be getting provincial taxes, as well...

B.C. - rich in terms of ganja, hippies and natural beauty

Alberta - rich in terms of oil, rednecks and money

Toronto - rich in terms of smog days, a non-playoff making hockey team and smug self-righteousnesses.

Toronto is rich in culture, the arts, and many, MANY other things...London is a culture wasteland, I hate this conservative town, I'd love to live in Toronto or Montreal, big cities, where there's actually something to do.

hey 9:51... london isn't a wasteland.. fyi.. its known as the millionaire city because all the retired millionaires use to live here.. and if you hate it so much.. then why are you even here and giving London a bad name? you're probably one of those rez kids who doesn't go anywhere besides maisonville and the bars... and you wonder why there's nothing to do??

Toronto does have MANY benefits, but also a whole bunch of drawbacks as well. Getting from one end of the city to the other can be rather hellish in itself (it takes forever)and usually people attending post-secondary insitutions are commuting from outside the city or from different parts within the city, which can make meeting up with one another a pain as well. Not to mention DRIVING (the cost and the stress). It is a fun city with lots to do, but it's also expensive to live in.

9:51: you're right. London sucks. There are no malls, no cinemas, no theatres, no concert halls, no arenas, no art exhibits, no cultural festivals, no interesting people, no old buildings to look at, NOTHING!

get off your ass, be creative and find something to do. I'm sorry your entertainment doesn't fall into your lap...oh wait...I'm fairly certain yours does.

let's all hate each other!

there isn't enough negativity in the world, i think. we should all definitely fight as much as we can about trivial things, especially when we can do it annonymously on message boards.

so fuck toronto, fuck london, fuck guelph, fuck every university other than your own, fuck cities as a whole, and even provinces! fuck everything! everything sucks and you're all better than someone!

fuck, fuck, hate. isn't it awesome???

Anonymous Anonymous said...

6:04 --> I think you may be confused by all this hating. It's not negative at all, it's actually just evidencing one of the defining features of Canadians - harbouring a deep and passionate loathing of Toronto.

It's universal. Whether you live in Victoria, Saskatoon, Thunder Bay or Moncton... we are all united in our mockery of the "The Centre of the Universe."

Alternatively, as Dexter Holland used to say,
"I hate a lot of things,
I hate a lot of people that are lame.
I like to hate stuff
'cause then I don't have to try and make a change."

Also, "I'm always thinking bad
I never have nothing good to say.
I'd rather tear things down
Than build them up
It's easier that way."

What would America be without NYC to absorb a nation's hatred and mirror back to it gloating arrogance? Nothing at all - the same nothing a Canada robbed of T.O. to kick around would surely become.

Is that what you want, 6:04??? Because as I'm sure you're aware, if we all stop hating on Toronto, the terrorists will have already won...

Seriously? You're seriously calling me a whore because I (as MANY other people) don't see the culture or entertainment in this city? Honestly, The Grand doesn't exactly qualify as high-class theatre, Orchestra London isn't a leader in music internationally at ALL, The Embassy? Call the Office? London's underground scene is pathetic, Shopping is Masonville, White Oaks and Westmount...which all have the same stores, the club scene is what, Jack's? 29th is about as classy as London gets. Art? The Children's Art Museum? Seriously? No, I bet Van Gogh's work hasn't stepped foot in London.

DO NOT call me a rez kid, I know this city inside and out, and I'll tell you right now I know it better than you do. Don't give me this millionaire bullshit either, London's highly conservative, and very...white. If no one's noticed. That's why they enjoy it so much here, I wouldn't exactly call that a good thing.

Seriously though, a whore? Please get some intelligence. Somehow.

1) don't be so damn sensitive. who cares what some anonymous hack says about you online? (esp. when you're anonymous too)

2) of course London can't compare to Toronto culturally...it's 1/10th the size! What do you expect?

3) If you loathe the city so much (as you seem to do) why do you go to school there?

I don't say this to be offensive, but only to ask....

(please note, I am NOT 10:33)

i AM 10:33. and i wasn't implying you were a whore. I was making reference to your frequent masturbation as your only source of entertainment. :)
also, there are other bars than the ones you listed. Don't be so lazy. London has some WONDERFUL hidden treasures in terms of bars and shops, and at this point in time I'm fairly happy that you are unaware of them.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

5:54, what's your point in being so menacing? Masturbation? Maturity, please. Hidden treasures, alright, if you say so. From the type of person you seem to be, I'll bet they're not something I'd like to experience.
and to 5:41, I go to school here because it's where I grew up, and financially made the most sense. Unfortunately I'm not blessed with loads of money as a lot of Western students are. I wanted to go to U of T (and got in)...and yes, I realize it's that much smaller, but this city seems to have a small-town mentality (no offense to to small towns at ALL), while the population is bursting at the seams. We're too conservative to be really culturally diverse or interesting...it has more to do with being conservative than size.

take a chill-pill and quit your bitching... if you think 29 Park is classy, then you are obviously a chronic dildo inserter. Dressing up to go out and ACT sophisticated and "with it," ya, that's really cool.

Its obvious that you are taking this whole thing too seriously... like you are some real intellectual giant because you got into UofT... whooppee... why don't you go there still? were you too busy experiencing all the cultural delights that TO has to offer to do your homework?

Get off your high-horse and quit trying to sound cool... the reason you don't know about the ultra-hip "underground scene" here in London is because they won't tell you where all the really awesome people hangout... they don't need some high-strung, wannabe hipster stinking up the scene with her shrill complaints and narcissistic claims of being too sophisitcated to have a good time...

Here's a tip: if you don't like it, leave. no one wants to hear how much you know this city, what financial problems you have, or what trends you find obnoxious. also, no one is stopping you from leaving.

4:55, before freaking out on 7:57 maybe you should learn some reading comprehension skills... he never said you WENT to U of T, he said whoopee you "got into UofT".

Generally when people "couldn't care less" about another's opinion, they don't say things like "go hang yourself". :)

This seems to imply that 7:57 DID, in fact, think that 4:55 went to U of T.....

Is there such a thing as double-irony?

4:55... you're still here? I thought you would be out doing "underground" cool things, rather than responding to my subtle criticisms of your character... the thing is, meatball, that you think you are cool because you got into UofT, since you decided to mention it in your earlier post in parenthesis. And I was responding to your overwhelming "too cool for school" attitude, and blatant narcissism, rather than the insignificant fact of whether you actually went to UofT or not. As I said before, no one cares, so why mention it.

Obviously, you missed the point, because isn't that what social dwarves and want-wits do? Miss the point? I'm sorry my rapid typing skills confused you, as I was trying to respond to so many of your idiotic comments and character flaws at one time, I may have gotten ahead of myself. But when you see something so stupid, you get

2:04 Chill-pill was actually used in 1996 in the movie Jackie Brown by the Bridget Fonda character, and is a great use of so-old-its-cool-again lexicon.

12:04: From the original meatball's post, I assumed that the moron in question started a semester at UofT, then dropped out or failed out before Christmas, and then decided to come to Western. It may have been a little hasty on my part to assume that the intellectually juggernaut that started this whole thing got into OofT, but I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that it was his/her/its poor grammar that started the initial confusion. But I think that we can both agree, that the original poster is an infantile poseur and thinks that they are really cool, when in fact, they are not!

Go hang yourself? who says that anyway? A pussy that doesn't know how to swear like a real man, or a pirate.... arrrgh, go hang your blasted self from the midden mast.

I can understand that Toronto has a lot of things to offer. Fair enough. But there's still are things to do in smaller towns. London does have a lot in it, if you know where to look. And there are a ton of good bands that play Call the Office (ie Hot Hot Heat), and since "the scene sucks" the crowds are smaller, making it a better show.
The conservatism bugs me sometimes too, but not everyone's a conservative. Not by a long shot. You just need to find the right people (if right for you is not conservative).
And really, what difference does it make where you're drinking as long as the music's good, and the people you're with are a good time?
No one ever ruled out taking weekend trips to see art exhibits, etc. We do it regularly. It's called making the best of your situation, instead of spending four years whining.
