If they can keep the trip from White Center to Downtown under 45 minutes I don't care what road it goes down.

I'm pretty sure the Super duper Christian men that voted against it just wanted more Trans women in the men's bathroom looking at them.
Jul 7, 2015 JakeS commented on Ballard Business Owners: Get Seattle’s Homeless Away from Us!.
I live in Ballard and have no problem with this. All the NIMBYs and yuppies can go back to Bellevue if they don't want to live in a city.

We already have dozens of homeless people sleeping in vans and old RVs on almost every street. Giving people a place to throw away their trash or grab a shower or access Social Services is not going to put the Sloop out of business. Frankly, I'd rather see them go out of business than block basic human services to people that need it.

People need to realize they don't live in a bubble.
Jun 26, 2015 JakeS commented on How to Keep Your Insufferably Hot House Cool.
It's all about the cross breeze. Pull or push air from the cooler side of your abode (the north side, or whichever side hasn't had sun lately) to the hotter side with a couple fans at each end, one facing in and one facing out.

A dehumidifier will only heat up your space. It's not humid enough here to make a noticeable difference relative to the amount of heat the thing will put off.

Close your blinds when the sun is shining on your windows.

Why are the faces of those little shits blurred out? Didn't they post it themselves? It's not like they are victims or something.

I really thought that nacho hat was actually full of barf.

Looks like 3 assholes to me.

A simple loogie on the windshield ought to be enough.

Most of the Fugazi catalog has aged just fine. Minor Threat is still just as good as it ever was. I'm old and hate you all.
