What should they name it?


"Cave In". If and when it gets stuck under 3rd & University, that's what they're going to have to do to rescue it, by digging straight down through downtown. Let's see how many lawsuits WSDOT and the state get buried under when they want to risk a half-billion dollar downtown property or three to rescue their drill.

Boneshaker sounds right. Unless that's a thing already?

@1 not true. I think you're confusing the below sea level Billionaires Big Dig Tunnel (SR-99) with the light rail tunnel.

But @5 ftw.

@9 what are you talking about? my named location? If the stupid SR99 tunnel drill get stuck, like Brightwater, the only rescue is to dig straight down to un-stuck it. That's digging straight down through downtown streets, or buildings. No lawsuit will let that go forward. If that drill gets stuck, mark my words, remnants will be found still stuck under our earth by future civilizations, unless the geological plate we sit upon subducts it under another plate.

Short: if it gets stuck, it's staying there and will never move forward again.

I expect there to be a binding Slog Poll.

Obviously this should have been a poll with "Barack Obama" and "Mitt Romney" as the only options.

I think #7 has it, and don't let my suggestion of the Transvaginal Puget Sound suggest only someone that wasn't funny thinks so.

The Gravy Train? The Public Troughinator? The Patronage Express? But if no one else likes those, I'll go with @26's "Nickels/Gregoire Giant Seattle Fucking Machine." Too damn expensive for too little payoff. Admittedly, I'm not taking account of lower capacity needs in the future, when we'll all be commuting on e-bikes and hoverbuses.

@8- Boneshaker has a nice local steampunk flavor, but DAMN IT a "boneshaker" is a bicycle.
