@11 Amazon delivers.

I welcome our free-time-creating robotic overlords.

@5 Oops. Time of this story was 9:33am. So not that.

@4 just a guess, but it might have something to do with the last comment on the original story:

"28 Stranger, quit click baiting inside your own damn articles. Some of us can't listen to the audio of a video (work, trapped under a sleeping baby, on a bus, whatever), so please include a transcript or at the very least, answer the question posed by the headline in the text. Don't be a story-tease.

Mar 20 Matt the Engineer commented on Why Is the Girl With the Blue Green Hair Walking Around Our Block 100 Times Today?.
@20 gender based or hair and creative exercise based? But yeah, I would have gone for "are you a scientist?".

For Seattle cyclists we have a better solution: finditfixit (there's even an app). Generally fixes potholes within a day or two. No ski mask required.
Mar 13 Matt the Engineer commented on In Awning News, This One at Day's Inn Saved a Toddler's Life Today.
Terrifying. But yeah, that awning is directly adjacent to the 2nd floor window (unless you're counting European floors, where the 1st floor is the floor above the ground floor). So it probably didn't slow down the decent much at all.
Mar 10 Matt the Engineer commented on Do What The Urbanist Says.
Construction increases affordability immediately - each additional unit allows a household to live here (or not get displaced). Yes, it takes time to design and build buildings, but there's no way faster way to put a roof over someone's head than building that roof.
Mar 9 Matt the Engineer commented on Adventures in Microdosing.
For more adventures in microdosing, there was a good episode of the excellent podcast Reply All on it. This was a similar adventure, also ultimately unsuccessful. From this we learned: figure out the right microdose before heading to work (facepalm).

@12 She started out with 4 tabs, and described diluting one into a water bottle and taking only 5 ml. Then later on only having 1 tab left. So I think it's likely she only described the interesting parts. But who knows.
