Yeah, it's a copy of that.

Jul 1 UNPAID COMMENTER commented on Ramiro's Place Apartments Offers Affordable Housing Option on Capitol Hill.
I'm honestly curious whether Domonic Holden was being paid by developers to shill the microapartment developer's agenda, or if he was just a clueless hack who slurped up their bullshit while they laughed at his naiveté behind his back.

Per Domonic's original article on Apodments:

The tenants would each have a private bathroom and kitchenette, with a sink and microwave, but they would share one full kitchen for every eight residents. The rent would be cheap—starting at $500 a month


Well that worked out exactly as planned. :/

As a ten year gay Capitol Hill resident who is about to be pushed out of my long time apartment by shitty micro-apartments with no parking, I can say I don't give a rat's ass that he's only been here 4.5 years. He's doing a hell of a lot more to give voice to the people & businesses being displaced than many of the lifers who have chosen to ignore the problem and bury their heads in the sand.

@28 Amongst young gays with daddy issues, there will always be a demand for 'daddy' type guys (even if they're closet cases).

Wait- did he seriously just call someone a "geezer that looks like the penguin from batman returns" in a paragraph deriding name calling..? Does he not grasp the irony??

No bitch, we don't hate you for being a twink- we hate you for being a self-important, tone-deaf drama queen. I for one can't wait for the day that you fully transition into 'Twank', then 'Twunk', and finally 'Troll'... at which point you'll no doubt long for the days when people actually found you attractive and gave a shit about you at the bar.
Jan 26 UNPAID COMMENTER commented on Should Starbucks Apologize to Capitol Hill?.
I can't fault Starbucks too much. As others have already said, gentrification of Capitol Hill started years ago and Starbucks is merely jumping on the bandwagon. It also doesn't hurt that I get a chuckle every morning when I drive by the Roastery and see the full-time security guard pacing out front, hired out of fear that disgruntled poors will harm their heinous 20 million dollar display of wealth.
Jan 20 UNPAID COMMENTER commented on Guest Editorial: Perhaps Seattle Should Find a Plan B for the Downtown Tunnel Project.
@39 I can't imagine why the WSDOT would try to avoid blaming the pipe... except for the glaring fact that they're responsible for placing the pipe there in the first place.

Funny that people think that once Bertha is finally repaired, it will move seamlessly through the other 88% of the dig. Remember how a metal pipe fucked the cutting head to the point of repair? From THIS POST a year ago:

And that pipe may be only the beginning: Crews have since sampled the soil ahead of the stalled machine and discovered more likely metal obstructions in tunnel digger's path, which all must be somehow removed before Betha can move again.

"We have probed 12 holes and encountered other obstructions in six of those holes," said Chris Dixon, the program manager for Seattle Tunneling Partners, which has a billion-dollar contract with the state to dig the tunnel (his company is not the same contractor the state worked with in 2002 that installed the pipe). Those obstructions are not believed to be boulders or timber, he said, leading him to believe they are "metal objects." (WSDOT's website claims that out of 17 soil samples, officials found four obstructions.) The tunneling machine, which is designed to churn though soils and break boulders, cannot chew through metal.


Yeah... there isn't a snowballs chance in hell this thing is ever getting finished in a timely manner or with acceptable cost overruns. It will most likely break down under a historical building, and that will be the end of this whole sad affair.
More...

8 & 11 are excellent examples of people falling for the sunk cost fallacy. If the money is already as good as spent, then they'll work on it until the original money runs outand then it's full stop, right..? Nope, because people who fall into this trap won't stop there... it's always, "well, we spent X dollars already, so we might as well keep going" indefinitely.
Nov 7, 2014 UNPAID COMMENTER commented on I, Anonymous.
A few months ago I came upon a hipster who had passed out across from the Viva apartments on Union, fallen forward into an alcove and smashed his head against a brick wall. he was laying face down with his head and neck wedged between the wall and his shoulder. He was completely unresponsive (to the point that I thought he might be dead) and I was afraid to roll him if he had a neck injury. I called 911 and stayed until the paramedics got there; Seeing the constant stream of indifferent & cruel drunks who made fun of him as they walked past was a fucking disgusting... I don't know what happened to him, but even if he was completely unharmed and just drunk as hell, I don't regret getting him help.
