I don't know for a total fact but I photographed extensively WTO and Mayday events in the past and they are agents. They were no one that I knew from any close neighborhood.

I don't know how feasible this would be but wouldn't Sounder trains, Ballard to Downtown work? Put a station in Ballard and perhaps even a station at Interbay. All you'd have to do is build the stations. The rail already exists, right?

Yes. Absolutely there is CenturyLink/Qwest/USWest service in the area and it is not a "dead zone". I just looked it up and there are many neighboring businesses who get access out of the STTLWA06 wire center or central office. I didn't look at their bandwidth but there is plenty of equipment installed and in use. That is just the old exchange and what it still goes by. But it is not a "dead zone" at all.

Oh and just to add, I got free clearwire service for about two years in the sense of "OK, I'll just keep using it". No bills no nuthin. Didn't pay a dime.

Yes. As a centurylink employee, it is definitely wired up. You have to realize that the exchanges exist and have for decades and it's just a matter of sprint doing whatever they're doing. If you have landline service, yes you have the ability to get DSL service. And no I am not writing this on behalf of centurylink. Just that the wire center is there.

It would be fun to watch him morph into looking more and more like his mom though.

Bro, I didn't say Metro bus drivers, did I? There are other forms of buses outside of Seattle. And you don't have to "spread the wealth" in order to recognize a job well done. What goes around comes around. People not accustomed to being tipped really appreciate it. And hahaha, I said I tip Taco Bell people thus that is what I said, though I rarely go there, yes, yes I do.

Also, bro, I tip 7-11 cashiers, Taco Bell people, bus drivers etc. If I have the money I pass it around to people I like, which if you're doing your job in a bar/restaurant means people come back and reciprocate. In almost twenty years I never charged for soda, coffee, tea to those who were kind, talkative etc also I gave those people, including the homeless free soup. You realize that's where the margins are right? Then you get a modest tip and a return customer.

Nope. You're wrong. It doesn't work that way. But seriously do what YOU want. I doubt you're a regular anywhere. Servers and bartenders can refuse to serve for any reason. I don't do that line of work anymore, but everybody on staff would know who you are and would begin talking about you. Two bucks on a 10 dollar tab is nothing.
