Bullseye! This is (one of the reasons) why I've never tried to pickup women at the gym.

It's interesting how stark the contrast between comments here and comments on the site that hosts the article.
Jul 18, 2012 Gobo commented on Kathlyn Ehl Resigns from McKenna Campaign.
I'm Asian, and while her comment was offensive, she did apologize and recognize it for the offensive thing that it was. If we can't accept a genuine apology for a mistake made, and move on, then at what point do people stop apologizing for their mistakes? Are we getting to the point where every mistake MUST be punished?

I have a couple nalgene's that I only use for water, that I wash on rare occasion. Mostly, if the water has been in there a while (more than a week), I might throw it out and fill it with all fresh, but I find that it stays pretty fresh even after a few days. It's not coffee or tea, but along the same vein.
May 4, 2012 Gobo commented on Foie Gras Face-Off: Anthony Bourdain vs. Kate Winslett.
I LOVE foie gras... I couldn't eat it every day (far too rich) but it is in my top 10 favorite foods for sure. You can buy whole lobes of it from Seattle Caviar in Eastlake. It's a regular item on Rover's dinner menu. It's also available at Mistral Kitchen (last time I ate there a few months ago).

Foie gras with some seared scallops, beets and a balsamic reduction... Great, now I may have to go find some.
Mar 28, 2012 Gobo commented on They Said New Parking Rates Are Killing Downtown Restaurants!!.
I'm not sure I believe that chart is all that conclusive. As it shows, in past years, the gross receipts show a small increase year over year. That with the paid parking time ending at 6PM. The increase from 2010 to 2011 looks to be on par with previous years increases. However, given that the number of hours that parking is charged has increased by two (during prime mealtime hours), I would expect a much larger increase in the amount collected if the number of people coming to park stayed the same given the expanded hours in which they now have to pay. Given that it hasn't increased relative to the expansion of hours, you could theorize that restaurant attendance is actually down due to (or at least related to) the increased hours in which parking is charged.
Jan 10, 2012 Gobo commented on 71 Percent of Washington Voters Oppose Amending Smoking Ban to Allow Cigars.
This was many years ago, but in Boston, they had a provision that allowed cigar smoking in establishments where some (relatively high, I don't recall the exact figure) percentage of the income for the place come from cigar sales. The one cigar bar I went to, you either had to buy from them, or pay a "cutting" fee. There were other rules such as the whole separate ventilation thing, but that's how they got around just any bar/restaurant saying their whole place qualified.

There are other ways to get internet access that don't rely on wires depending on where you are exactly. You could pay for a 3G hotspot type account. There are companies like Clear(wire) who operate on a 4G network.
