Long Island Has Suffered a Bud Light Truck Spill

Years ago a truck full of Budweiser spilled out during a snowstorm. In a ravine between the roadways.
Because of the snow, it was just left there for a couple of weeks.
Cars and trucks would stop and people would be digging out beer cans.
A cop would stop from time to time and everyone would scatter.
It was great fun!!!

My friends got to a train that had turned over. One of the cars was full of bottles of Cuervo 1800 and we were all just out of high school. My friend drove out there with his Toyota Corolla and filled the trunk and backseat and front seat and floors. Needless to say it was a bad 3 months. I don't drink tequila 20 years later still.

A simple house comes with a simple story: One day, a contractor noticed a tiny open lot tucked between two existing houses and decided to build on it.

These little houses (and there are a few around town in this size range) are surprisingly expensive. I wouldnt be surprised if it was worth $800k- $1 mil currently. Toronto real estate is crazy...

Where is the rest of the article? This had virtually no information. It doesn't even state the house's square footage, or have any pictures of the interior. Two paragraphs is not a story. If you are going to start posting non-content just to get more ad revenue, I'm going to miss you when I go.

I lived in similar apartment blocks in Bulgaria. They are kind of ugly, but at the same time have a beauty that is their own. I can see why they are being torn down, I do hope they save some, just for the sake of history.

Reminds me of a Russian film I saw years ago, it was about a drunk who was in a strange city, but in his drunken stupor, he went into one of these housing projects since it looked exactly like his. The door lock was the same, everything was the same even though he was in a different city. It was a very depressing film.

As stated in your article, OK stands for all correct. I have heard that it was trendy, at that time, to spell things incorrectly. "All correct" became "oll korrect" which was shortened to "OK".

As is mentioned, there are different opinions on the actual origin of this expression. Also, O.K. is used both orally and in print in many other countries.

Being a Canadian, everyone I know and myself included takes off their shoes at the door. I would feel extraordinarily uncomfortable wearing my shoes in someone's house
yesterday at 17:00
I always take my shoes off in my place. Some of my friends think it's a bit odd when I visit their places but considering all the stuff we step on daily in an urban environment, even in small tiny amounts ...spit, dog feces, vomit, urine, gum, discarded rotting food, etc., it's best to keep those thing out of our homes by checking shoes at the door.

You want me to take my shoes off when I enter your home? Then you better have something else for me to wear on my feet. Expecting me to wear my socks out and get them dirty by walking around with no shoes on is rude and insulting.
