commented on What I Learned from Walking Around Lake Washington in Two Days
I walked from Seward Park up to Matthew's Beach once and it was a lovely way to spend the day. I hadn't realized the Broadmoor golf course extends all the way to the water and you have to walk all the way up Madison to get around it. That part sucked. A kayak would have been handy.
If I ever become emperor of Seattle I'm putting a path in on the waterside of the Broadmoor so pedestrians and cyclists can access the Aboretum from the south without climbing a big ass hill.

@17- That's ass-backwards, like much in our society.
@19- "I think we are at the beginning a tectonic shift in the relationship between law enforcement and the communities they police. Let the cops close ranks and mourn these two dead officers."
The tectonic shift I'm seeing is just a speeding up of the process of the cops closing ranks against the rest of the public. Massive protests call for accountability and get met with derision and violence, and then when a mentally ill man shots his girlfriend, two cops, then himself the cops close ranks even more.

I realize now that having you take computer forensics in fifth grade was a bad idea, because clearly incognito mode wasn't as effective as I thought.
I also guess all the frank of open chats about sexuality we had went right the fuck over your head, since you are acting like I'm some kind of monster for noticing that women are often attractive. I guess maybe I should have used a megaphone or something.
At least I didn't give you a bunch of hypocritical lectures on dressing modestly. Interestingly you never seemed interested in dressing "slutty" and always made comfort and functionality the first two issues when picking clothes. I like to think banning Disney Princess (except Mulan) bullshit and replacing it with Studio Ghibli had something to do with it.
In summary: People have sex drives. Deal with it.
