The report does not give any indication of the levels of these things that were present. Equipment is pretty sensitive these days and preventing any contamination is almost impossible.

If you really want to avoid ingesting human DNA you better stop breathing, as a good chunk of the dust in the air is human skin, shit, saliva, or other bits.

@4 The corollary to that is that theatres should let actors out of their commitments if a truly amazing opportunity comes up.

No way I am spending $200 for a wristband I have to wear for three days straight. Fuck that.

Who the fuck else were we supposed to vote for in that race? Gregoire is as useless and milktoast as her mom so he's out.

That left two crazies and of the two he had the better name.

It was either that or write someone in.

Time to pay more attention to who we elect as prosecuting attorney.

@8 Agreed. People are much more willing to open up if they think the interviewer is on their side. Like getting them to say that the information becoming public is the real problem.

No way they would have said that if she came in too confrontational.

Cut the money from prosecutors in King County who have milions to waste trying, and failing, to kill people.

@14 I have seen them for fuel.

If you spent 200 on a dinner this would cost you 4 extra dollars. I much prefer that over a service fee, which is generally 15-20% and pocketed by the restaurant.

I have zero problem with this and am more than happy to pay it. Upping labor costs certainly impacts a restraunts bottom line and there is nothing wrong with passing that cost on.

We certainly develop talent, but that talent rarely hangs around long. Europe and elsewhere offer much better play and a whole lot more money for top talent than the US.

That is slowly changing, and you're seeing more midlevel talent stay in MLS where they can get more play time then they would competing in other leagues, but it'll be a while before you see the really good players spending their whole career in MLS.

@6 I'm not sure the league is making enough money to do that yet.
