These are mostly just vague ideas of changes I would make if I were in charge of things. My preferred type of national government would be one that is decentralized and put in to the hands of local governments as much as possible, especially for a nation as large as Canada (that's thing #1), so some of these would be more relevant if I were in charge of provincial or municipal government, and not on a national level.

I was looking at various services that send you the ingredients and recipes for meals, so one doesn't have to think, and I realized what kind of service I really want.

My dream service would basically be a meal-planning service.

I've been using Let's Encrypt since it was early in beta to get an certificate, but the process was a bit painful (not for me, but painful enough to not recommend to "average people") as one had to install and run a bunch of command line stuff to do it.

I made a shortlist of my favourite movies.

It was difficult to quantify what makes a movie my favourite. At first, I started out with movies that I wouldn't mind watching again at a moment's notice, but some of these require the right mood, and some I haven't seen for a long time, and don't want to ruin what I enjoyed then.

Here they are, in alphabetical order:
