commented on Helen Fisher on Open Marriages: "They never end up working long-term."
"The reasons open marriages don’t work are biological, Dr. Fisher said: The parts of the brain involved in romantic love are next to areas that help orchestrate thirst and hunger, she said. "
That sentence is just straight up pseudo-science. I was unable to relocate any research involving any measurements of the brain at all related to open marriage.

This header is innacurate and inflamatory:
"Feds Invade Pot Farm in Search of Occupational Safety Data"
When the story describes OSHA performing a non-hostile inspection with the cooperation and support of the business. Extending normal worker protections and workplace safety regulations to the new businesses is a positive thing, both for the normalization of weed, and for the workers employed in it.

ugh. I live in Wallingford right off of their route, waking up to the inanity. Honestly, I don't think it should be legal to make so much repetivive noise over a large area for such a dumb reason.

The black market has thrived everywhere in the united states forever, and even the most heavy-handed law enforcement has never put any long term dent on it. But Seattle thinks they'll stop this super convenient and easy manifestation of it with an arrest-free bust or two and a press release?
The way to either get rid of those businesses or integrate them into the legal system is to make the legal system convenient and reasonably priced so as to outcompete them. That includes having delivery services, as we have for everything else.

Glad to see my pick for best humor won. "World's best handjob" had me bent over laughing.
