    Civil litigation, pretty much exclusively internet-and-tech-related. And then I do tech policy stuff in my spare time.

    I actually like the British model for a few things. Split profession is interesting; I'd prefer to be a barrister if I had the option.

    That's cool, i wanted to be a barrister originally but it's always been a crapshoot. I have a nerdy interest in arbitral stuff and contribute articles but that's sadly as close as i get to contentious stuff now.

    See I love the adversarial nature of litigation; it's like a really complex game. Unfortunately you almost never go to trial; the only way to get consistent courtroom experience is to do criminal defense or prosecution. Even civil "trial lawyer" firms settle 99% of their cases; they just use threat of a competent trial performance to drive settlements.

    I can respect that viewpoint, it has merit.

    And I can always fight with real Canadian right wingers about animal rights and how fur is disgusting.
    Fur IS disgusting in the modern era.

    I'm curious, how is your access/availabillity to vegetarian "fake meat" products in Canada? Things like this:



    Is Canada Veg/Vegan friendly for restaurants or no would you say? Thx.
    France has just banned that sort of soycuck labelling. No more vegetarian sausages/mince/burgers/steaks etc.

    i.e. this piece of news today:

    Democrats file suit alleging Russia, Trump campaign, WikiLeaks conspired to interfere in 2016 campaign

    (CNN)The Democratic National Committee is suing the Trump campaign, Russia, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and several associates of President Donald Trump alleging a grand racketeering, hacking and fraudulent conspiracy that harmed Democrats through WikiLeaks' publication of internal party emails during the 2016 presidential campaign.

    Etc.

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/20/polit...sia/index.html
    Presume this means Dems no longer have faith that Mueller will find the smoking gun of Russian Collusion they were hoping for?
    They did the same after Watergate broke, and IIRC received a pretty hefty settlement.

    That happens here mostly too. One day I might give the bar another shot as i do miss it - used to do voluntary stuff for claimants at tribunal level.

    As a center-left Lutheran, I was properly triggered by this article, and it certainly misrepresents some aspects of Protestantism, but it does have some good points.

    I wonder where those idiots draw the line. It lists milk alternatives, too. So no more almond milk? Ok call it almond based beverage and sound like the lawyers are doing stupid shit again, that's nothing new. But what about coconut milk?
