commented on The Adverse Impacts of Genetically Engineered Foods—A Case for Labeling
As is stated in this letter the “science” that “proves” GMO’s aren’t safe are done by industry backed scientist. This is the same sort of science that proved that smoking cigarettes weren’t harmful. This is the same sort of science that has stated that global warming is not caused by human activity. Industry backed studies have a remarkable ability to back the funders preexisting opinion.
Just as you have every right to glom down all the GMO packed goodies you want, I have the right not to. Labeling is good for everyone.
It’s a shame that our Congress is so bought and paid for by Monsanto that this is even an issue at the state level.
commented on Serving Drinks/Food/Beef Jerky in Mason Jars: Allow or Disallow?
@#20 .. exactly thank you ... I’ve just stopped ordering anything to drink at Skillet .. I REFUSE to drink a cocktail or even worse a glass of wine from a jar .. seriously Skillet, get some vintage looking diner juice glasses anything but the jars ... I’ve never been to a real old school diner that used jars as drinking glasses, have you?

There was this show actually about something and everyone went to a show about a coffee shop being torn down instead.
commented on Seattle Has the Worst Drivers
When I moved here in 1993 I was shocked at how bad the drivers were .. now many, many years and many new residents from other places later, the drivers here still suck. Maybe it’s the water?
Washington drivers don’t like to stop for pedestrians, signal for a turn with soft turns apparently presenting some sort of dilemma, don’t know how to merge, seems to think that in-city speed limits don’t apply to them ... cell phones and SUVs have only made things worse.
I walk as much as I can, I’m not brave enough to ride my bike.
commented on To Tip Your Server or Not to Tip Your Server: That Is Not the Question
I’m a former restaurant owner and I hate tip culture. I don’t think it is good for business and I don’t feel that it improves service or team work.
I do think that tipping as the principal means of server-busser pay does allow restaurants to keep people hanging around in case it gets busy so I can’t imagine tipping as the principal means of paying floor staff will change anytime soon.
