Aug 11 King Rat commented on Why State Senator Reuven Carlyle—a Democrat Representing Ballard—Won't Endorse Sound Transit 3.
Reuven Carlyle set it up so we have to choose between education and transit, and then decides he just can't support us making the choice for transit. How about having a spine and funding transit or education without making it a choice, dipshit?

Ohhh, a sales tax is sooooo regressive?? Yes it is dipshit. So get on it and pass an income tax.

This is the sort of thing you are elected for, JFC.
Apr 25 King Rat commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Boyfriend Slow-Walking His Divorce.
"Whenever I ask him for an update on the process, we end up arguing and not speaking for an entire day."


"Given the amount of time this is taking, and given your boyfriend's angry response when you bring the subject up, it's possible ..."

If she's putting him on blast for being methodical, he might be angry because of how she's coming at him, not the questions in particular. Dude has all sorts of reasons to be methodical and do this in such a way so that his ex isn't angry at him. They have kids, so he's gonna be interacting with the ex at a minimum until they are all 18.

Homewrecker views the ex poorly ("she tries to play tricks on him, keep the kids from him,") but treating her that way is a recipe for years of strife. Why go through that unless the ex is already making it so shitty...

Oct 12, 2015 King Rat commented on When Five Restaurateurs Own 40 Restaurants, What Does That Mean for Seattle's Dining Scene?.
So I went to King County to look up how many restaurants are in Seattle, because these 40 restaurants are probably a near monopoly:

*THEY* don't want you to know.

The 1970 Seattle Times is online, through an SPL database. The P-I, however, is not.

"Where to Get Vegan and Gluten-Free Ice Cream Substitute Sandwiches"

There, I fixed it for you.
Jul 1, 2015 King Rat commented on Oh, Look. The City's Finally Giving Out Those Minimum Wage Education Grants It Promised Months Ago.
Oh boo hoo, it took a bureaucracy 7-8 months to evaluate who to give $1,000,000. It's good that the city is actually following a process.
