commented on How Washington State Screwed Up Its Legal Pot System
I get the distinct feeling that the WSLCB deliberately set the whole thing up to fail so they could throw their arms up and say, "whelp, we tried! Guess legal pot doesn't work!" But now of course we have Colorado as a huge counterargument, showing just how incredibly incompetent the WSLCB is... so where is the referendum to get the whole board disbanded?

Cab companies- you need to do the following in order to stay relevent:
-release an app that allows for quick reservations and accurate wait times
-allow riders to pay through the app (or hell, with a credit card, period)
-a feedback feature for drivers on said app, with real repercussions for drivers who don't pick up the right person, refuse to take credit card, don't follow directions, etc.
^^THIS IS WHY UBER & LYFT ARE BEATING YOU. Stop wasting your energy and money trying to beat them into submission with legislation, and instead spend that money on creating a top notch user experience that makes people WANT to choose a cab... If you did that, then the fact that cab drivers are scrutinized more than unregulated drivers and insurance requirements are higher would be selling points! You should be striving to rise to your competitors level, not trying to drag them down to yours.
commented on Does The Biggest Loser Lie About Important Weight Loss Information?
Another aspect of rapid weight loss that the show (and this article, unfortunately) overlook is the fact that skin doesn't shrink right along with the weight loss, usually resulting in loose unsightly extra skin around the midsection, arms, neck, etc. You never see this addressed in most weight loss articles or shows, for obvious reasons- It's a lot harder to hate on a fat person if the hurdle to being 'attractive' isn't just exercise and diet, but also costly plastic surgery.
