A pity they waited so late in the game to run this. I voted for Prop 1 primarily because I feel almost obligated to vote for ALL taxes, simply because I know there are so many jackholes who reflexively vote against all taxes, regardless of their merits. But I'm also pretty much on board, point by point, with Fnarf's "community hate" for the zoo management, and I might have listened to the Suburban Times for the first time ever, if I hadn't already mailed my ballot.

A fine for other members of your party posting stuff? Is that even remotely enforceable? Can you really make a contract that makes you responsible for what adults you have no control over, no real relationship with, do in the future?

Fucking hell. Twenty-seven more months of this horse-race bullshit? HWAAARF!

@10 Because their parents owned zero, or maybe one car, not two SUVs with fucking DVD players in them.

And I'll bet half those kids got to the lake by clogging the streets with their filthy bicycles. OMG, TEH WAR ON CARS GOES ON FOR SEVENTY YEARS!!!1! OH, THE HUMANITY!

Also, Doritos hadn't been invented yet.

@3 That story has all the buzz.

This is what we used to describe as a "calling all livers" situation when I had a bunch of friends who were homebrewing: time for an immediate party to try to kill two cases of beer before they went bad. It's a pretty common problem with homebrew and, to a lesser extent, microbrew beer. In my experience, exploding bottles are quite rare, but the taste certainly suffers.

A while back (6 months, a year?) I bought a couple of packs of Dick's IPA that started surging when opened after being ignored for several months.

If the coffee's really grown in Africa, definitely OK. So I'm proudly voting #3.

Voting with the losers. This is like the '80s and the '00s all over!

Just to pick nits: the WAC won't let you put 4 people in a canoe. You can have 4 in their rowboats, with a choice of either a pair of oars, so only one person is working at a time, or canoe paddles for everyone.

Also, if you put 3 in a canoe, the center person sits on the bottom. They do give you a little cushion (technically, a Type IV Personal Flotation Device) but the seats of a rowboat are probably more comfortable and cleaner.

And please wear your PFDs ("lifejackets"), which means actually buckling them, not just draping them over your shoulders. You never know when some drunk in a Bayliner will ram your rowboat as they come through the Montlake Cut. You'd look pretty stupid drowning on such a trivial junket.

@155 The Eat the State website hasn't been updated since Nov. 1, 2013, so I wouldn't hold your breath.
