FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: tcook052
This new annual thread has been carved out of the previous thread in an effort to reduce the number of megathreads on the AC forum. For those interested previous versions are the original 2004 - 2014 thread , 2015 edition, 2016 edition , 2017 edition and 2018 edition.

The original thread started by accident but quickly became a popular place to come and discuss off topic things such as hockey, new movies, or almost anything that wouldn't fit into existing AC forum threads. Air Canada or Aeroplan topics such as flight feedback, in-flight services issues, status or mileage earning/redemption are all topics that should go into existing AC forum threads so others can benefit from this information. Topics about hotels or airlines and/or their loyalty programs, destinations, in-flight travel tech. or anything best discussed elsewhere on FT may be relocated to that forum as this thread isn't meant to import travel topics to this forum that are better discussed on other forums. FT is an amazingly diverse and large community so members are encouraged to seek out all of its resources.

While the conversation is more relaxed as it would be in a lounge that doesn't mean however that the FT rules don't apply here as they definitely do so please refrain from controversial topics such as politics or religion, avoid profanities and treat other lounge patrons with the same respect you expect.

Go figure.

Buds can't beat mediocre teams on home ice but then beat the most dominant team in the league at their hostile turf.
But I guess this was during the backup goalie stretch of games.

I always imagine the worst thing about being a Leafs fan is being a Leafs fan.

The worst part about being a Leafs fan is seeing your team lose to the Roughriders!

I remember when the Roughriders and Rough Riders co-existed in the league. What a joke.

More on the way, congrats! You might consider getting fixed snipped though if it isn't against your personal beliefs. You'll already have enough field a baseball team if you include the parents.

I knew a woman who taught sex-ed in a junior high school. She would apparently explain various methods of contraception, and tell her students which form had failed resulting in each of her 7 children.

I personally know people who wanted and choose to have more than 7 kids

I know people who use NPF and have planed out 8 evenly spaced children. Quite a feat.

What's NPF in this context? Google is giving me nothing obviously related.

You might consider that my wife and I love having a whole gaggle of kids.

You might also consider that Iím trying for a hockey team with enough subs to play a full 60.

Point taken, didn't mean to offend. May your descendants be as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore, if that is what you and your wife desire. Maybe you can move to my little town and help keep the enrolment up in the local school.
