Jul 15 orino commented on Microsoft Layoffs Happening Soon?.
When I was a permatemp there it seemed they had an awful lot of Assistant User Experience Managers and others whose jobs consisted entirely of attending meetings. They're the ones who should worry most...
Jul 14 orino commented on Is This the Crappiest Street Sign in Seattle?.
This one is so old, it was painted. By someone with a brush.
Jul 8 orino commented on J.K. Rowling Published a New Harry Potter Story Today: What Do You Think?.
You also missed this option: "I really don't understand why anyone over age 12 cares about this."
Jun 9 orino commented on Amazon's Shitheadedness Spreads: You Can't Pre-Order The Lego Movie on Amazon Right Now.
There isn't a thing for sale on Amazon that you can't buy somewhere else. Consider doing that...
Apr 3 orino commented on Jägermeister Becomes Symbol of Gentrification and Gay-Bashing on "Cap Hill".
I'm always amused by ads that say some business is ON Federal Way. It's not like they couldn't have, you know, checked...
Mar 28 orino commented on Seattlepi.com "Article" Actually Just Taco Bell Advertisement.
Hearst has dumbed down all of their news sites. And they share lots more content than they used to. I'm told Hearst expects Pulitzer-quality reporting but provides almost no resources, financial or otherwise. Oh, well. The U.S. media are controlled by the right, which wants, no, needs an ignorant populace to survive...
Feb 27 orino commented on Traffic Through Downtown Has Been Declining for Years Now.
Declining vehicle traffic could simply mean some people who don't live there have decided driving to or in Seattle is simply more trouble than it's worth, and don't bother anymore. There's really not a whole lot in Seattle one can't find in the 'burbs... and downtown is just a mall, except unlike the mall you get hassled by homeless people...
Feb 7 orino commented on Which Sketch Turned You into a Monty Python Fan for Life?.
Sorry to be a buzzkill, but I never found Monty Python all that funny when it was new, and quite frankly am sick to death of it 40 years later. Ditto for pretty much all the British comedy shows KCTS repeats incessantly...
Jan 3 orino commented on Here's the Veronica Mars Trailer.
This movie has nothing whatsoever to do with the series, which, while it was set in a P.I./teen soap opera thing, was actually about the relationship between Veronica and her father, a relationship more realistic, human and engaging than most any other depicted on TV or in movies. I like Kristen Bell as an actress, but I'm pretty sure I won't see this movie unless I'm really bored, and I can get it out of a vending machine for $1.30.

According to more than one source, had the series not been canceled when the UPN and WB TV networks merged, Veronica would have become a cadet at the FBI Academy, but still solving mysteries in her spare time. That would've been interesting.

Seriously, I only have half of a right foot... if someone wanted to donate their size 11, I would happily take it.
