commented on Greg Smith Proposes Seattle's Tallest Skyscraper
fwiw, the met grill is on second ave whereas columbia tower is on fourth ave (where floor "one" is). given that each block of hill is roughly 3 stories, this would likely mean that columbia tower's top would be at least a few stories taller than the top of this proposed building.

i used to do some work at cedarbrook lodge as an outside contractor-type. they regularly host alaskan airlines and other companies for their various corporate seminars and meetings, employee training, etc. also have a fancy restaurant, not to mention that it's a nice upscale hotel to start with. so yeah, somehow i don't buy his story.
commented on Protesters Disrupting Alaska Airlines Shareholder Meeting Right Now
i work for a plant company and was supposed to water the plants inside this building today but was blocked due to the protests. i thought the cops were just overreacting to some mild street chanting but it makes more sense that there was this shareholder meeting happening...
commented on WA AG Bob Ferguson Orders T-Mobile to End Deceptive "No Contract" Advertising
I was in T-Mobile yesterday to get my phone fixed and talked and ended up changing my plan to one of the new ones. The thing that I like about the new system, and something Goldy didn't really say, is that the plans and phones have been decoupled. Yeah you don't get a new phone at a discount price, but you don't have to buy a new phone!
My old 2-year contract would've been up in July and my idea was that I would get a new phone with a new contract. Now that I was able to secure a new contract on its own I can buy a new phone whenever I feel like it. I can change my plan whenever I feel like it!
I feel like the discounted phones served as a lure to lock you into bullshit contracts. Kinda like getting a Mach III razor in the mail because the blades are where the money's at.
