Or: "...drones are replacing combustibles and buoyant gases."

Helium is a gas that's markedly lighter than is an equivalent volume of most of the gases that comprise air (basically nitrogen and oxygen). So even when helium is under a similar pressure as air (like in a balloon), it accelerates (or exerts a force) upward. Like oil in water. Or like hot air in cold air.

Will someone swoop in and save it already, please?

So will the 430-acre (2/3rds square mile: HUGE!) Weyerhauser hq become a park or horrific suburban sprawl?

@18: These are the times when I would have used it just last weekend (which, admittedly, is likely more than my average weekend, but hopefully it helps answer your question): 1) It would have replaced Uber: I parked on CapHill for dinner in a spot I could leave my car overnight, and took an Uber to go to a drinks venue after. 2) I walked from Sbux on Olive to Cal Anderson ball fields. 3) I would have checked out something I saw was for sale at the north end of Broadway, except I had a parking spot near the old Bauhaus that I would lose, and it just wasn't worth waiting for two buses or paying for a car service. 4) I walked from a friend's house on 17th to Broadway/Pine. 5) I took an Uber from Amtrak station to meet friends for drinks on the hill.

@12: Why not both? Use your personal bike for roundtrips from your house. Use bikeshare when you find yourself downtown/UD/CapHill and want to get a dozen blocks away. In the past you would have cabbed, maybe found a bus going in a similar direction, walked for a long time, or fought for a new parking spot --> over a year, you'll save your additional $85 if you do those on occasion. (And once you have the pass, you can use it simply for a 15-minute joy ride on a sunny lunch break from work.)

a) When I signed up just a minute ago they were still offering the "early member" swag

b) Perfect gift idea! I signed up the BF and now bday is taken care of.

@1: like car2go -- god, I hadn't even thought about the fact that it'll be impossible to get one on the hill after the Amazon commute. And for the reverse problem: I just looked at the FAQs, and they'll give you a 15-min credit if a station is full when you attempt to return it (time to get to another station), but still...it means you park your bike where you don't want to be.
Aug 19 G g commented on The Most Misleading Seattle Times Editorial Ever?.
The nytimes blog has already regurgitated the Times' editorial without reference to its falsehood. Just a few paragraphs from the top: http://op-talk.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/08…
Aug 15 G g commented on LGB People Who Seek Counseling From Religious Sources Are More Likely to Attempt Suicide.
People who seek counseling are probably already among a group that has a higher odds for suicide. So I would say it is impressive that LGB that seek (non-religious) counseling do not have a higher suicide rate. Even if you disagree with that, there's no denying that this statement contains a logical fallacy: "IF a group that seeks counseling has the same odds of attempting suicide as the general population THEN counseling doesn't help". Still, the results of the study are evidence that obtaining religious counseling is unhelpful relative to regular counseling.
May 23 G g commented on What Are You Doing This Weekend? Stranger Critics Answer the Question.
In Vancouver on a rainy weekend? Dim-sum, of course. But it won't be rainy all weekend, so take the ferry directly to the North Vancouver market or hit up Granville Island.
