As someone who grew up in a snowy climate, I think it is so cute how Doug just don't know.

This just in too: City of Seattle loses right to own 20 acres of prime real estate and a 20,000 seat Arena only for financing a portion of the build. Now that land will stay in the ownership group indefinitely. I'm fine with that, no public financing millionaires and all, but the city had some skin in the game before, now this will be Hansen's arena and the city isn't going to have much say over it

should have named this a list of the "50 places you've scored coke at during the early 2000's"

@27 I agree with your entire statement.
May 3, 2016 wisepunk commented on It's Official: You'll Vote this August on Doubling the Housing Levy.
In 2012 I bought a townhome, and my property tax was about 2400 a year. This year it will be 5,000. If all of the levies pass, and values increase again (and a value increase only matters when you sell) I could be looking at $7,000 next year. almost $600 a month just in prop tax for a townhome in Columbia City. The tax is already near 50% of my P&I and at this rate in 5 years I will be paying more in taxes than actual P&I.

Voting no. I have to stop worrying about housing IN SEATTLE for refugees, the addicted, the uneducated, the bad luck crowd, and the whatever-sob-story-they-have leftovers so I can concentrate on not joining them.

The Smartest Man in the World, for comedy and politics like the stranger had 10 years ago.

My mom did HIV counselling in the 80's when I was in high school. In Kennewick. Mom said don't bother with listening to anyone trying to teach sex ed in high school, gave me a bag with 300 condoms, and told me to give them out to all my friends.

Spike, bunkerball is never pretty, but it is an effective way to protect a tie when a team goes to 10 players.

As for developing new players, you can always check out an S2 match, like the one I went to last night. 18 bucks for a seat, 6 dollar Big Al's at all four corners of Starfire, and all the young raw soccer talent you desire. Darwin Jones with a hat trick made the night, where we drubbed the Whitecaps2 and sent them back to Canada with their tails between their legs.
