commented on Council to Vote Today on Taxi and "Ride Share" Regulations; Will Lyft and Uber Lobbying Pay Off?
Hey taxi companies! Use the money you're spending on lobbying to create an app! I'd use taxis if they had an app so I could hail them, pay them by card, and rely on them to actually show up when I hail them. As it stands now, you have to call, and if they find another fare before they get to you, you're fucked, without even a phone call to tell you they abandoned you... and don't get me started on the stink they raise if you try to pay by card. I actually had one drive out of my way 3 blocks and stop to make me use an ATM! Seeing as that it was the middle of the night and there was not another taxi in sight, I complied... but the next day I downloaded the Lyft app. Never again.)

I don't know why the Cuff is all that surprising... Because it's a gay bar? They always play football on the big screen on Sundays.
commented on CVS to Stop Selling Tobacco at Its 7,600 US Stores
Wonkblog caught something else important:
But by jettisoning tobacco products, CVS can further evolve their pharmacies into full-fledged health care providers and strike more profitable deals with hospitals and health insurers. Its stores already are home to over 750 MinuteClinics, the country's largest chain of pharmacy-based health clinics, where ordinary Americans can get flu shots or check out earaches and sore throats.
So in essence, CVS saw the writing on the wall regarding the decline in cigarette sales, and has instead chosen to hitch their wagon to the very profitable healthcare industry instead... and as a result, they need the positive image boost to back it up. Not exactly 100% altruistic.
commented on Solving the Mystery of the Tainted Cocaine
So how the fuck did cocaine producers in middle-of-nowhere Colombia figure this out exactly...? I find it really hard to believe that so many different manufacturers all came to the same discovery and all decided to start using Levamisole in their product simultaneously without being connected somehow.
commented on Bragging Is the Best Part of Sports
I've given up on trying to defend the Seahawks to haters... for anyone keeping score, somehow Seahawks fans are both fair weather and obnoxiously overzealous, the entire fanbase is responsible because one little butthole (possibly) throwing popcorn at NaVarro Bowman, and clearly the entire team is comprised of assholes because Richard Sherman is cocky as all hell.
(In this entire villainous narrative however, nowhere do the haters ever mention Russell Wilson- who is practically a goddamn saint with a squeaky clean reputation who visits Seattle Children's Hospital on his off-hours. Funny how that slips through the cracks.)

@24 He's stating the obvious: In public, young men are more apt to not give a fuck about showing proper hygiene.
(However, having lived in close proximity to girls, I can tell you that in private, they are gross as hell.)
