Canada 150:

June 6, 1944 – The Canadians storming of Juno Beach during the Normandy landings.

Juno Beach was about eight kilometres long, encompassing four seaside villages. The beach was divided into two sectors designated “Mike” and “Nan,” stormed by the 7th Canadian Brigade and the 8th Canadian Brigade respectively. The 9th Canadian Brigade came ashore two and a half hours later as backup.

The German defences at Juno consisted of Widerstandnester (resistance nests) at the seaside villages of Courseulles-sur-Mer, Bernières-sur-Mer and St. Aubin-sur-Mer. These were fortified with concrete and surrounded by barbed wire and landmines. There were also about 20 medium and large gun batteries nearby. Most of the German soldiers the Canadians encountered were either over age 35 or under 18. With just 400 such men, they were well outnumbered by the first wave of Canadians.

Veterans Affairs Canada estimates that 15,000 Canadians from all three branches (Army, Navy and Air Force) landed on D-Day. About one man in 19 who landed on Juno Beach became a casualty (killed, wounded or captured). Among the first assault waves that morning the ratio was closer to one in two. By day’s end 340 Canadians had been killed, 574 wounded and 47 captured. According to the Army’s official historian these numbers were about half what planners had feared.

In total, about 100,000 Canadians played a role in the D-Day invasion and subsequent Normandy campaign. About 10,000 were sailors.

My dad is sick to the point where he can’t even hear now. I wanted to go to the store to get him things so he could survive. I bellowed at him basic supplies, he told me to fuck off. I eventually got his grocery list but he has his TV in his room at 100 still.

Posted one of the craziest hockey brawls in recorded history; here is the NBA’s counter. Strangely enough, I was at a (former) work Thanksgiving party, and the TVs were airing this game. I don’t care about the NBA, it just happened to be on. My old man was still working for this company, and brought me along; I was a delivery driver for a couple of summers for it, and wanted to say hello to a few people.

Kinda figured it was that game. Man, were there hot taeks aplenty for a looooooong time following that one. It made me feel a bit old when I realized that was almost 15 years ago.

I need to finish watching Wonder Woman. I have to take my pup in to the vet in the morning. I have paused it a bunch already. It is so far the best non Batman DC movie, the bar really isn’t that high though.

Batman Begins is a good movie up through his attack on the dock. The Dark Knight looks pretty and Ledger is great, but on later watches is a shitshow. I still want my bandwidth money back for DK Rises.

The fact you have to hedge your bet on the best performance in the DC universe proves my point. I stand by Ledger being great, the script had it’s flaws. I still love the shit out of that movie though.

Addendum: Batman Begins might have been the better movie, I still love the Dark Knight more. If only for Ledger

It’s been a decade and no one has really done explored the space the Joker occupied as a villain whose skill set could only come from being Special Forces or CIA paramilitary, and that’s a damn shame.

So you are just gonna let the new Education Secretary refine your bookshelf? I think we should stick to the old way of just calling it nerd bullshit until we need you to fix something.

You joke. I never learned that language. I have the book in my collection from one of my professors giving me extra books and it is outdated but a good skill to have even now if you are looking for a job. I am stuck with like 10 insurance companies in my area and they all need work done on legacy software.

I dated a couple of them in my high school/college years. They know they will be married off against their will in their early twenties anyways so they do stupid stuff hot and 18, this in no way surprises me.

OK, it may surprise some people, but apparently, I heard this through the grapevine since I obviously don’t frequent or search for such thing is that these models *gasp* MAY pose for other sex sites.
I KNOW, shocking.

I feel like Dave Grohl is a next-generation, male, Madonna. Like, huge when younger but stuck around and never became irrelevant. Even those who don’t new stuff appreciate his accomplishments; he doesn’t just get forgotten as quick as he was discovered because the “real fans” bolt when he goes main stream.

But Madonna is a bitchy whiter, Dave comes off as a likeable/nice with musical talent.

I would do a lot of bad things behind a dumpster to see Dave Grohl tour with QOTSA
