I have never been so glad to utterly miss a meme as much as I am now.
Feb 23, 2015 Chris B commented on Is Secretary Just as Bad as Fifty Shades? Erika Moen On the Other Mr. Grey.
@1 There's also the fact that we're quick to jump on flaws in movies/literature we can't stand even as we can overlook glaring plot holes in movies we love.

That hypothetical movie I hated? How DARE they use a 1956 Cadillac in a scene OBVIOUSLY set in 1953! Stupid, lazy film-makers. But Indiana Jones apparently holding his breath while he clings to a Nazi U-Boat for days/weeks at a time? Oh come on, it's just a movie!
Feb 19, 2015 Chris B commented on That Steam Rising from the Pioneer Square Rescue Pit? That's Bertha Crowning..
Wait, we can't get a monorail, an NBA team OR a hellmouth? For fuck's sake, Seattle, get your shit together already!

Seriously, that is very very cool, Fnarf.
Feb 19, 2015 Chris B commented on Bertha Is Crowning. Next Stop, Rescue Pit..
Don't think of it as losing a tunnel, think of it as gaining a Hellmouth!

"We'd heard that Seattle Tunnel Partners put on a great show, but it was so boring!" Thumbs down.
Feb 6, 2015 Chris B commented on Police Union President Tells Seattle Officers to "Be Mindful" on Social Media.
Poor guys, learning the hard way that there's no such thing as an "indoor voice" when it comes to the Internet. And it's not so much that their rights are curtailed as it's that other people are calling them on their bullshit.
Feb 2, 2015 Chris B commented on Chris Christie, Who Quarantined a Woman over Ebola Fears, Says Parents Should Have a "Measure of Choice” When It Comes to Vaccinating Their Kids.
If nothing else, I want to know that this guy will still be speaking out strongly in favor of choice when parents choose to not let their kids see anti-vax doctors or go to schools with other kids who haven't been vaccinated. Anything to nip these people in the bud if and when they go off on a tangent decrying discrimination.

"Hey, you chose to avoid this step, so we'll choose to avoid you."
Jan 31, 2015 Chris B commented on Is Anyone Else Excited NOT to Watch the Super Bowl Tomorrow?.
My local indy coffee shop will actually be closed tomorrow so I don't even have that option for non-Super Bowl activities. I'll probably read, maybe go see a movie...

I'm happy for the fans and the folks who are super into the sport but... meh.
Jan 30, 2015 Chris B commented on Metro Bus Driver Says She Was Also Bullied by Officer Cynthia Whitlatch, Warned SPD Years Ago.
"She did the right thing by filing the complaint." Beyond that, he had no comment.


Reminds me of when I was bullied in junior high. The only recourse was to tell the teachers/principal... and... then....? God I hope this is all part of a cultural shift against the abuses of power by the powerful.

Oh man... I wonder if I can convince my girlfriend to go with this. We're both huge fans.
