"His speech is measured and Spartan. His disciplined form matches his disciplined attitude."
Yea no. If you look at the layoff email it's waffles around synergy and lots of corporate non-speak. It's not measured or spartan in any way at all.
commented on After Lengthy Battle, Seattle Regulates Its Rideshares
Can we please stop calling them rideshares? When Uber is advertising to cab drivers and offering them low interest car loans and telling them this could be their entire income stream they're not sharing rides with someone on the way to work they're a cab company. Nothing more.

@13 For me UK chocolate, which I grew up with, is less chalky and richer than herseys. The UK has a higher cocoa solid requirement (20%). In the UK a cadbury's milk chocolate bar contains 22% as opposed to the woeful 11% of a US hershey bar. (Although Europeans would scoff at either meagre amount). The UK also uses West African cocoa, as opposed to South American beans. The powdered milk is different, and worse of all the US loads even more sugar in (Hell you people have sugar in bread, I can't get a decent loaf here) and adds PGPR a lovely chemical cocktail which acts in place of cocoa butter.
Now the uptown Met Market has a small british section which includes mars bars and milky ways. So I urge you to splurge on a bar just to see what the cheap UK choccy tastes like. Except it's not so cheap any more.
