At this rate we’ll have our Green Bay season tickets in 89 years.
American born opera singer Valerian Ruminski has been sacked by Ottawa’s Opera Lyra company after he took a photo of a gay man on public transport and then mocked him on Facebook
This is a big story in the classical music world, and it should be. Good on Ottawa’s Opera Lyra. The older generation is usually quick to make fun of change, creativity, or anything that colors outside their lines.
Add in the fact that Opera singers get incredibly well-paid and this guy is likely so far out of touch with reality, struggles, and creativity.
He thinks his shit don’t stink, and I wonder if he took a limo to the show.
because everyone needs a dancing groot on their dash
Is the C an American thing? Cause we don’t have that here. Even when we fly from the US
I dunno, when I’ve looked it up, it always said YHZ. I’ve never seen the C before.
It’s an official, international, FAA thing. Likewise, all the US ones technically start with K: KDEN, KMSY, etc.
There are 2 systems. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) founded by the airlines in 1945 uses the standard 3 letter codes. The UN founded the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in 1947 and created a standard 4 letter system that has many more possible codes.
Under the IATA system a code was derived from the name of the airport or the city it serves.
The ICAO system works by the first letter being a region of the world (i.e. L for Southern Europe) and the second letter being the country (i.e. F for France) and the last two being for the airport (PG for Paris Charles de Gaulle). The notable exceptions to those rules are: the U. S. and China have too many airports for a 2 letter code and use their IATA codes with a K or Z appended to the beginning respectively. C is assigned as northern North America which currently is only Canada. Canada has also been given both Y and Z as country code letters. They also often just use the last 3 of the ICAO code for their IATA code which is why they often seem to make less sense than U. S. ones (YYZ YEG etc.)
And now you know way more than you ever wanted to about how airports get their letter based identifier codes.

I would like to add that I came up with this SAME NAME for the jaeger independently when she proposed this to me.
Just a helpful tip to all my followers. If you want to interact with me be sure I never call you friend since if you do you will soon sever all contact with me. Even if we discuss this phenomenon and you say you won’t ever do that, you will.
Hmmm, I need to find a way to weaponize this ability methinks.
