commented on About That Hate Crime I Committed at University of Chicago
Context is always important and Dan is a smart guy. How could a smart guy not realize that calling someone "it" would be offensive to anyone overhearing the conversation? If I was talking to that person, sure, I'll use "it" if that's what "it" prefers. But no one else knows that at the Starbucks.
And everyone needs to get a grip and quit being such a crybaby. "The mean man said something mean!" Give me a break.

commented on Why We Need Cycletracks: Truck Blocks Entire Bike Lane On Capitol Hill
Some trucking companies have a policy of terminating their drivers if they hit anything. Given the choice between blocking the bike lane or bumping into anything, I'm sure all of you would rather keep your job.
Additionally; you have no idea what the parking environment was like when the trucker arrived only what it looks like in the picture.

As long as you don't mind an almost non existent summer (it's June 26 and we've had 2 days of sun) and no real alternative transportation other than your car, you'll be fine. Oh yeah, expect to sit in traffic for 2 hours to and from work. It doesn't matter where you work, it'll take you 2 hours to get there. 2 hours to get home.

commented on Who the Fuck Puts Blinders on a Building?
It's because architects are self involved morons whose purpose is to spend way too much money on something ugly while they then criticize the workers who fuck up their "vision".

In German, the letter combination"oeh" is consistent with the long "a" sound. Thus," Baynor" for our Speaker and the correct pronunciation of my last name.
I've always assumed that Amy Poehler's family just got tired of correcting people and adapted a mispronunciation

What kind of a virgin, pledged to be married, decides to sleep with a stranger when she knows death is the potential result?
I would have to guess it would be the kind of vitgin who just got raped.

commented on SL Letter of the Day: Listen To His Words
I was the one who stayed at home while my partner was abroad for 8 months. Let me tell you, LW, there is nothing more attractive to a woman than to find out that the guy in the bar is in a committed relationship, but alone.
I've never been hit on so much in my life than I was at that time. I think women A. feel sorry for the lonely guy and B. consider it a challenge to see if he'll cheat.
