They (accidentally) used germicidal UVC lights for display (they should normally be hidden from view or up in the ceiling area).

I'm watching the nascar Daytona 500. I watched the Netflix show and it kind of intrigued me.

But.

I'm not sure I quite get nascar yet. Are all the races on these oval banked tracks or do they have like F1 type circuits too?

I guess there's some kind of tactic to win this, but there was a massive crash so feels like there's a chunk of luck that you don't get wiped out in any crash too.

Mostly ovals but they do a few road race tracks. And not all tracks are high banked. The thing about ovals is it keeps the races close unlike road courses.

with zero interest in the RF normally, this is getting super stupid funny; can be easily rectified in like 2 min with a quick video, but they are doing this instead.

New Kate video released (she wasn't Gone Girl'd), which makes a lot of the previous PR decisions quite baffling.

Anyone else find the crying and bellyaching over the Ontario Science Centre to be over the top? 

It was a piece of crap when I was a kid, and it's a decrepit piece of crap 30+ years later located in such an awkward location.

Yes and no. My wife and I both love the Science Center, and my toddler loved the kids area when we went a few months ago. Is it the most amazing place is the world? No, but, with a membership, it's a great place to take kids when the weather is bad.

That being said, the issues with the building go far beyond the concerns about the roof that led to this closure. The bridge from the entrance into the main building has been closed for some time because it's unsafe and there are many other maintenance issues with the building. It hasn't received adequate funding to keep it in a state of good repair for at least 25 years, probably longer. The full cost to get it in shape is likely in the hundreds of millions - and the work will almost certainly require it to be closed to a decent stretch of time any way. Relocation - temporary or permanent - was inevitable. Quite frankly, if this happened without the Ford government's plan to relocate it to Ontario Place, there probably wouldn't be this much fuss, either. People just see this a convenient excuse to move forward with that plan - which, in terms of optics, it certainly is and there may be some truth in that feeling, as well - but, that's more due to poor communication about the true state of the building across multiple governments more than anything else.

One of the bigger reasons for it being in that location still was it was more accessible for school field trips in a way that a downtown Toronto location will be time prohibitive for a lot of day trip opportunities.  Using Ontario place for something isn't a bad idea.  For general tourism it's not a bad to have another Toronto attraction but it's not great for school trips which are an important part of its function.  I'd have to strongly disagree with the dismissal of it just being a piece of crap though.

The other big issue is that Doug's developer buddy just bought up a massive amount of land just across the road and I think it's pretty obvious that Ford wants to give a sweetheart deal to his buddies in the same way that he pulled crap with the Greenbelt

The building itself is nothing to bemoan losing.  It has been several governments who passed the bill down the road instead of making repairs when they would have been more cost effective.
