@33: University street leads you to the freeway park which will carry you to the rest of University street, which ends roughly 3 short blocks from the Seattle U campus. So, yeah, University street will get your ass to Seattle U from downtown. But, again, you missed the point of my comment so why bother trying to argue logic?

@28: I was referring to the name of the street, not the name of the station. I made it clear that I think the station name is dumb. The street name, however, is not.

@2: I believe if you keep walking east on University street you will eventually run into Seattle University, so the name isn't *totally* bonkers. That said, I've personally witnessed out-of-towners coming from the airport scrutinize the map and be confused about where they need to get off to get to UW.

As for the point of the post, I second basically every suggestion made. Stair signage is awesome (love the way they do it in the Loop in Chicago), numbered exits are great (they do that all over the world, I've seen it in Korea and Paris, to name two), sidewalk compasses also help. Basically, anything but the total lack of information the stations have now would be an improvement.

@10 has it. He doesn't want to actually show her affection, he just thinks he's supposed to hold her hand, and she doesn't want to play that bullshit. At best this gesture is inauthentic, at worst it's fucking insulting.

@Raindrop: The word you're looking for is tack.

Regardless, if someone left a note on my car or house or anything else that could be directly tied to me as a person suggesting I would soon be dead, I'd freak right the fuck out. Also: you'd better believe I wouldn't start my car up without having it checked for bombs.

@3: The Trump voters I know (all related to me by blood or marriage) did it because Jesus and abortion were more important to them than electing a qualified candidate. They're mostly spending their time with their fingers in their ears, insisting none of the current political situation is as bad as it seems. As long as the Republicans dangle an abortion ban on the horizon these people will follow them to the end of the Earth. And I mean that literally.

Oh, except for that one uncle who voted for Trump because he couldn't stomach voting for a woman. As far as I know he's still happy with his decision.

@8 - It was said in the earlier piece that she's a scientist. Also: go fuck yourself.
Feb 28 stirwise commented on I, Anonymous: Post Pot.
@2: pretty sure mailing a bunch of pot to New Orleans via the USPS is a felony. Since OP doesn't know where it originated (sender used OP's address as his/her own), there's not a lot they can do.

@2: What about the reality of the popular vote? When should we abandon the fact that Clinton won?
