@103 - We actually agree, you just misinterpreted what my point was. All Im saying is that by the standard set by those calling the kayakers hypocrites, they'd have to be loin cloth guy in order not to be hypocrites. Its hyperbole. Basically, living petroleum by-product free is an absurd standard for being allowed to be against arctic drilling. In other words loin cloth man is not representative of the only alternative to our current trajectory of consumption. Rather, he is a caricature of the standard set by the people calling the kayakers hypocrites. Did that make sense?

@95 - Probably the fastest way for us to end up in loin cloths is to keep heating up the planet.

I just reserve the right to have an opinion without passing a purity test that is proctored by people who don't even agree with my opinion.

Once I was in the Port Townsend Co-Op and an unshaven-ed guy and his kid cam in wearing basically loin cloths and sandals fashioned by hand from straw and shit. They bought vegetables and put them in a burlap sack and left, on foot of course. I just assumed they were heading back to their tree house in the woods. They smelled like what I imagine a sasquatch's choad smells like. Basically these two are the only humans I have ever encountered in person that have a right to protest Shell by the logic of these fucking morons.

@5 - Good call, we should stick to our values of embracing "diversity" by welcoming the candidacy of this rich white guy who is a toady of big business. Thank you for setting us straight. Now shouldn't you be at the gun range shooting Obama targets to get ready for the wave of mexican terrorists that are about to storm our borders ion order to convert us to sharia law?

Did Seattleblues really compare having his "British sports car" to someone choosing to be a teacher?

Folks, we have been clowned. SB is clearly a satire on the mind-set of the privileged. You had us all going for so long. Bravo, sir.

At this point I gotta think the cashier at the Walgreens on Broadway, or the night security guard Harborview, or the custodian who cleans the Strangers offices, all have to be jumping up and down saying, "hey assholes, what about us?"

As for captain "pulled up by his own (jack)bootstraps" @5 I love how you subtly (and accidentally) laid out a pretty good argument for collective bargaining by these workers.

Im so glad the Stranger is here to keep reminding us that this is a law exclusively about the wait staff and bar tenders in their favorite hipster haunts. Keep up the amazing work.

@22 - yep I lived in London in the 90's and in my experience tipping was not a thing there.
