The trains have become self aware and will begin eating humans at any moment.
Jul 18 watchout5 commented on I'm Voting for Jess Spear, No Matter How Bad Her Signs Are.
*shrug*

I just like voting for socialists until that stops working out for us.
Jul 17 watchout5 commented on Hobby Lobby Is Expanding to Washington in a Big Way.
Creating more work for the employees just demonstrates the need to have more employees there. I get it though, it's tacky and there are better avenues. Like putting up signs all over town about how the selective Christians who picked the correct religion in the eyes of our corrupt government gets an unfair market advantage simply because they're religious. Which means we should find a way to tax them more. Can we tax Chinese imports more? That seems like it would really hurt their bottom line. And fuck those "religious" assholes. They're only religious for the profits and everything about their business proves that.
Jul 17 watchout5 commented on Referendum on the $15 Minimum Wage Will Not Go to the Ballot This Year.
@53 because people rarely vote against anything, they usually vote for something. You have this idea that eastern Washington is salivating at the idea of "sticking it" to Seattle because SOCIALISMS but I don't buy it. People are going to look at it and ask, "why the fuck am I voting to stop any possible wage increase for me and the only reason I'm voting against this is because I'm supposed to hate Seattle" and they're going to reconsider. You might be the kind of person who's obsessed with the rest of the state showing Seattle who's boss but you don't represent a very large group of people. You're just vocal and opinionated. You'll grow up one day.
Jul 17 watchout5 commented on Chicago Company Limits Employee Bathroom Breaks to Six Minutes a Day.
See this is what happens. First they come for the birth control methods that are paid for under the insurance you work for AND NOW THEY'RE COMING FOR YOUR BATHROOM TIME. Just claim that your religion has mandatory 10 minute bathroom purges, problem solved.
Jul 11 watchout5 commented on San Francisco Scares Off App That Lets You Bid on Public Parking Spaces.
I want to see a lawsuit filed assuming something like this ever happens. Imagine if you will you sell your spot to someone, see someone waiting to take the spot that isn't the person who paid. What do you do? Tell them to leave? What if they don't care. Do you just sit there until someone blinks? Like some kind of game of parking chicken? If the spot is sold, money is given for the spot, and someone else takes the spot, how does it go to court? This is hilarious.
Jul 10 watchout5 commented on The Death of Aaron Swartz and Why Blacks Must Be More Sympathetic.
@14 the dude was prepared to take on a fallout but wasn't prepared for the Armageddon of YOU WILL BE BEHIND BARS FOR LIFE FOREVER AND YOU WILL NEVER TOUCH A KEYBOARD AGAIN THE CAGE WILL BE WHERE YOU DIE. The school didn't even want to press charges and the prosecutor here went bat shit crazy on him to make an example of him. His blood is on their hands and I'm sure they sleep just fine at night, they don't care, never have and never will, I don't expect them to care because of an internet blog post.
Jul 3 watchout5 commented on Union Activists Call Bullshit On Forward Seattle's Anti-$15 Minimum Wage Signatures.
While I don't really care if it's on the ballot signature collecting people shouldn't be allowed to lie. This is big business for them and the only reason they're being this pushy is money. Money is really the root problem here. If these were people who were so passionate about this issue they took time out of their day to lie to people on the street without being paid for it I'd probably feel less icky. This business is fucked up though, and if this could be the line we draw I'd really like this to be it. Money isn't what we should be voting on. What the people want is what we should be voting for.
Jul 3 watchout5 commented on "A Burger Has Never Made Me Cry Before".
I had to stop at "it really does taste different" - I can't take this kind of bullshit in my marketing damnit.
