I recommend reading this piece to understand how the land in Seattle has fundamentally changed over the years: CHANGING SPACES
Nature, Property, and Power in Seattle, 1880-1945 by Matthew Klingle. It's pretty staggering.

Oh and while I hate Monsanto and think they should get what's coming to 'em, Boeing is majorly to blame in this situation. They've had Seattle/King County at their beck and call since the 1920s, and try to get out of any sort of blame for pollution.

I think he means the ecological footprint of owning a dog vs owning an SUV.

Obviously it's not that simple and the takeaway should not be that owning an SUV is better for the environment than owning a dog, but rather that most of the things we own in America have huge ecological costs that are unnecessarily high. Certainly when you consider the large scale implications of owning an SUV vs owning a dog, the SUV has a worse ecological impact - and one that is more difficult to trim.

Damn, Mudede did a number on y'all this time! Cheers Charles.

I was entertained by the video, which is what new singles are primarily judged on these days--right? I'd give it a 6/10: a level of quality that allowed me to watch it through to the end without cringing.
Jul 31, 2015 Bigsfrottin commented on The Death of the Obedient Pedestrian and the Rise of Sidewalk Rage in Seattle.
Unless I'm in a hurry, I don't mind people on smartphones that much. They're pretty amusing to watch at times. The pedestrians that annoy me are groups of friends that walk three or more abreast, take up the whole sidewalk, and either have no awareness of the fact that they're in your way or are just assholes. I think we should just put sidewalk extensions wherever possible since apparently the smartphone trend is pushing out the driving trend.

Worth it to hear him say Snoop Dogg
Nov 20, 2014 Bigsfrottin commented on The Coronation of King Barack Hussein Obama the First Begins Tonight! (Live-Slogging President Obama's Address to the Nation).
I haven't watched one of these in a while. Is there always that crystal chandelier hanging visually right over Obama's head like a, ahem, crown? Just sayin', kind of a poor choice given the annoying monarch shit.
Nov 18, 2014 Bigsfrottin commented on Why Am I So Intolerant of the Duggars?.
Straight couples, however, are trying to ban Duggar marriages. In fact, the country should be banning their family from living here. Just imagine what the Duggar family's carbon footprint must be!
Nov 12, 2014 Bigsfrottin commented on If You Didn't Vote, Why?.
Because I'm registered in Pierce County but temporarily living in Whatcom County, and even though I made sure well ahead of time that the election people had my correct mailing address, I didn't get a ballot! And since I was not able to swing down to Pierce County before the election and it was too late to have them send another, I was fucked, yet again. This also happened to my boyfriend who is registered in King County and a friend who I believe recently registered in Whatcom County - so he was able to vote on election day at an office. I wonder how many others simply didn't get a ballot and couldn't get another sent in time.
