"'North of 49' almost always refers to the 49th parallel in Canada, which makes up the border with the US from Minnesota to the Pacific Ocean. "

Actually not true VA. An interesting bit of geographical history here. The 49th parallel only holds as far West as the strait of Georgia. Then it jogs through the islands (the San Juan Islands South of the line the Canadian Gulf Islands to the north) thence South Westerly between the San Juans and Vancouver Island to the middle of the Strait of Juan De Fuca, thence North Westerly to the Pacific. Interestingly before deviating it crosses Boundary Bay, lopping off Point Roberts (Robert's Bank to our Canadian friends) from the lower mainland. Point Roberts is part of Washington but accessible by land only through Canada. The line through the islands was mediated by Kaiser Wilhelm I after the abortive "Pig War" where an ever ballsy George Pickett (last in his class at West Point and then a Captain) garrisoned the South end of San Juan Island after an altercation over said pig between an American farmer and British soldiers. Washington probably owes the San Juan Islands to Pickett's defiance and apparent willingness to let his men be pulverized by the British Navy. He survived to become a Confederate General and later lead the disastrous assault on Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg.

Well, except he's not north of many states and is in fact south of places like Portland, Oregon. "North of 49" almost always refers to the 49th parallel in Canada, which makes up the border with the US from Minnesota to the Pacific Ocean.

This is a silly thing to say since although much of the land is "North of 49" around half of the population lives south of that. Hence many Canadians state they are "North of 49" but, in fact, are not. Some by quite a bit, such as Mr. Sinbach.

Students at Oberlin College are demanding to meet with the school’s president after complaining that the cafeteria’s take on Asian dishes is inauthentic and “disrespectful.”

Their grievances range from a “cheap imitation” of the traditional Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwich to the replacement of fried chicken with steamed chicken in a Chinese “General Tso’s” dish.

Now, these students are demanding change – and recognition that the menu is a form of what they call “cultural appropriation.”

Oberlin College is known to be a fairly liberal campus, as well as actress Lena Dunham's alma mater.

An oldie but goodie...

“Blue waffle disease” deserves the city's attention, Trenton, New Jersey Councilwoman Kathy McBride said at a City Council meeting last night.

During the councilmember comment period of the meeting, McBride said she received a concerned call from a city man asking what Trenton was doing to combat “blue waffle disease,” and said she hoped health and human services director James Brownlee could provide her with more information on the mysterious disease she had never heard of.

"It's already claimed 85 lives and there's a case here in Trenton," McBride said. "It is a virus that is 10 times greater at this point than the AIDS virus."

In fact, it appears that McBride fell victim to an internet hoax and April Fool's Day prank.

“Blue waffle disease” is considered an internet urban legend, a fake sexually transmitted disease said to tint women's genitals blue. A graphic image of a woman supposedly infected with the disease has circulated on several websites.
