commented on Let's Build a People's Crossing to West Seattle
I'm a PDXer, and super proud of the bridge, but our bridge is only crossing a river. Wouldn't a bridge like this from West Seattle to downtown just be way bigger of an engineering challenge? Or has this sort of thing already been studied?

commented on What Do You Think About E-Cigarettes?
My partner switched and I love them:
a) He's not inhaling ash and other nasty combustion products, so it's quite likely much better for his lungs;
b) He can take as much of a "hit" of nicotine as he wants and just put it away, so he doesn't have to smoke an entire cigarette just because he lit it and doesn't want to "waste" it;
c) He's gradually reduced the amount of nicotine in the gel shit that he buys for it, so there's less of that, too;
c) He no longer smells like shit when he comes to bed at night after having a smoke.
Yes, yes, all of this would be true if he didn't smoke at all, but this was unlikely to happen soon and going to be a much harder problem to solve. As it is now, he has a largely unoffensive habit that is (I sincerely hope) much healthier than his old habit.
I'm a huge fan of the things.

Anyone but Phi-Phi. She's that awful combination of thin-skinned, mean, and egotistical but without the intelligence to at least be a good Mean Girl. I'd be happier seeing them bring back Madame LaQueer before I see Phi-Phi win.

commented on SL Letter of the Day: Hot Asian Topping
The real racism here is that Dan had a chance to demand (and possibly share?) a pic of a "smokin' hot" guy and dropped the opportunity. Why do you hate Asian dudes, Dan?
