commented on Spotted in Ballard
There is a vicious little rumor being put forward by the "No" crowd that this initiative will "hurt low income families" because "they can't afford the background check, and what if they needed the weapon for protection" (Totally disregarding of course the cost of purchasing, learning to use, and properly maintaining said firearm)....

I stopped riding 2nd (which is faster than all my other alternatives) entirely due to that intersection at University, it's a nightmare. The protected lane can't come fast enough.
commented on What Do You Think of the Home Dry-Cleaning Device?
Fnarf, while I normally agree with you, in this case I'm going to absolutely own my disagree. I can get the same press with my steam iron that I can get from the dry cleaner. Yeah, it takes a little more time (though not 30 min), but its time I don't mind spending. That being said, I own a professional quality iron (I do a lot of sewing) not a 30-50 dollar Target model, and I will absolutely buy the argument of someone not wanting to spend the time (your time after all is worth something)
