CC Random thread

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

People need to get it straight, especially in the challenging times, punches to the face for sneezing Chinese and diphtheria blankets for the aboriginals.
Yes, it was good of Rumina Daya to remind the viewing audience of that

... and also point out that if you sneeze in public, you may be mistaken for being Chinese. :|
Apparently the puncher did tell the punchee "go back to asia" which would be historically accurate.

Taiwan could become an Asian Liberia with the Yellow Star Liner sailing from Steveston.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I think they’re actually closer to the Ainu in northern Japan.
The Ainu people are assumed to be the descendants of pre-agricultural native populations of northern Japan, while the majority of population of present-day Japan (Hondo-Japanese) is considered to have descended mainly from post-neolithic migrants. Sequence-level polymorphisms of the HLA-class I (HLA-A and HLA-B) genes were investigated in DNA samples of 50 Ainu living in Hidaka district, Hokkaido. HLA-A*2402, A*0201, A*0206, A*2601, A*3101, B*1501, B*5101, B*3901, and B*3501 were observed at frequencies of more than 10% and most of these have previously been found in populations of not only Asians but also North and South American Indians. A*68012, which has not so far been detected in Hondo-Japanese, was found in the Ainu (3%). On the other hand, several alleles common in Hondo-Japanese, including HLA-A*3303, A*1101, B*4403, B*5201, B*5401, B*4601, and B*0702 were infrequent in Ainu (0–1%). Correspondence and neighbor-joining analyses of various populations based on HLA-A, -B and -DRB1 gene frequencies enabled distinction between Asian, Native South American, European, and African populations. The Ainu, as well as Tlingit (Na-Dene), were placed midway between other East Asians, including Hondo Japanese, and Native South Americans (Amerindians) in the correspondence analysis. Furthermore, several HLA-A-B and HLA-B-DR-DQ haplotypes common in the Ainu, are shared with some Native American populations. These observations strongly suggest a unique place for the Ainu as descendants of some Upper Paleolithic populations of East Asia, from whom some Native Americans may have descended.

The United Nations has put out a tweet asserting that people shouldn’t use politically incorrect terms like “boyfriend,” “girlfriend,” “husband” and “wife” in order to “help create a more equal world.”

Yeah... maiden name and family name aren’t even the same thing.

I also think partner implies a more settled relation than boyfriend/girlfriend.

In my usage, typically boyfriend/girlfriend is someone you’re dating, but you typically live with your partner.
Shrug. Guess usage may differ in different societies though, I guess.

Really stupid tweet. The UN is not in the language business, and should not meddle in this.

Drillers always referred to each other as "partner" and the standard joke has always been that a drillers partner is the guy that goes to town and gets two blow jobs so he can come back to the drill and give his partner one.

Wow - Doc - triggered so easily? Maybe if you read (posted? - since you likely read) the full quote, you might calm down a little. Watch your blood pressure, bud. ;)

Good blood pressure is one of the few things I have going for me health-wise. ;) That and a resting heart rate that is almost too low.

I never really thought about that. :(

I was just reminiscing about an old CC joke most won't remember.
