If that's a flow chart, this comment is a 12 dimensional pivot-table with embedded pie charts.

Interesting data-point. My neighborhood, in south Shoreline, is getting a light rail station in 2023.

More transit = good, right? That's how we deal with rapidly increasing density, right?

Yes, except that the subsequent re-zoning of my neighborhood from single-family to multi-family/mixed commercial is going to spike the fuck out of property values here as developers look to buy up existing real estate and re-develop it into more units.

A $300 pair or earbuds? Yeah, they'd better get me fucking high to justify that pricetag.

Get with the program America. The UK has had weird-sounding-and-delicious-tasting chips for years. Roast lamb and mint? Chicken and stuffing? Yes please.

"eliminate the free market"?

Those words, I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

This is the invisible hand in action, my friend, albeit with it's middle finger extended to you.

Reason #1 why assigned seating at gigs is bullshit.

The whole thing about comparing prison budgets to school budgets is bullshit of the highest order. When schools are providing 24/7 care to their students, not to mention providing their every meal AND healthcare AND the highest level of security, then you can compare them on the basis of budgets.

Until that point, you're comparing apples and lightbulbs and complaining that neither of them taste like oranges.

I'm a propulsion engineer.

But lo! The Bible is silent, SILENT I SAY, on the topic of aviation safety.

Ergo, I could say that God doesn't want me to ensure that every aircraft that rolls out of the factory is as safe as can be, and so I could go to work, but not do any work, and then sue the fuck out of Boeing when they rightly fire me for being a terrible employee. BECAUSE GOD SAID SO!

Enjoy your next flight, folks!
