You forgot to list "pen (verb)"
Dec 22, 2015 waffle commented on Congress Lifted the Crude Oil Export Ban, Which Could Mean More Oil Trains in Washington.
The mayor should just bar oil trains from the city tracks. That's within his authority -- Daley fucked up meigs field because of "terrorism" risk that was bullshit, and this is real risk.

Feds can do what they want but there's no obligation for WA to accept shipments by death train.
Nov 27, 2015 waffle commented on BREAKING: There's an "Active Shooter" at the Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs Right Now.
How is it they could apprehend this guy alive after he shot 5 cops but they couldn't help shooting Laquan McDonald 14 times for holding a knife?
Nov 24, 2015 waffle commented on What It's Like to Be a Woman in the Writing Industry.
I haven't read her books and now I know I don't need to. How can so much of someone's brain be taken up with the attendant trivia of "being a writer?" Your MFA program, the other MFA students and teachers you know, the other Granta suck-ups you know, your writers' block ... that shit is deeply not interesting. At all.

dtmfa. not even close. he interpreted "making out" to mean "fucking," then he interpreted "no" to mean "yes," then he blamed you for being upset over it? sounds like a boundary-pushing douche.
Jul 17, 2015 waffle commented on Feds: No Need For ENDA—Workplace Discrimination Against LGBT People Illegal Already.
@1 most states are employment-at-will, meaning that employers can hire/fire for any reason as long as it's not specifically protected (discrimination against a protected class, medical status, retaliation, etc).

Not having clear lines makes it hard for employers to fire bad employees for fear of lawsuits and hard for victims of discrimination to get representation because every case is a potential loser.

@6 at the medical store they sell both 4% THC stuff (which I believe uncle ike's sells under the name AC/DC) and 0.4% THC "no THC" stuff. Do they have the latter at ganja goddess?
Apr 20, 2015 waffle commented on Conservative Groups: If We Let Gay People Get Married Then Straight People Will Abort All Their Babies.
This is amazing. If gays can marry, what will happen to all the hags and beards of the world? They will all get abortions, that's what.

Did Anna Minard also quit or why didn't you proofread this shit? That usage of "grieving" is not ok.
Mar 13, 2015 waffle commented on Police Reports Illustrated: Skateboarding Is Not a Crime.
If only there were an army of this guy to teach drivers how threatening it is to have a car honk at you when you are on foot.

Horns are built to be audible from inside another car. They are uncomfortably loud otherwise. Honking at pedestrians, bikes or skateboarders = risk of causing an accident. Pepper spray in your face.
