Jan 4 RVPMB commented on Washington State Has a Strategic Pot Reserve.
Some of the inventory figures are fairly suspect. Production weight may be taken as whole plants at harvest, after drying, or after reducing dried plants to usable flower. All those weights vary greatly and don't necessarily relate to the weight of product sold to retailers or bought in pot shops. On top of that, there's a case of apples and oranges here: production is measured in bud, but not all weed is sold in that form. A lot of pot these days is getting turned into shatter/wax/oil, tinctures, or edibles. These aren't weighed the same. A very large weight of weed can be reduced to a very small weight of high potency extract. Thus, it calls into question whether there is a huge amount of pot out there. Wholesale prices are definitely going down, but it's hard to say there is actually a massive reserve of pot.

Also, what kind of an egocentric asshole quotes himself to back up his own mean-spirited opinion? For shit's sake!

@1 FTW! There is nothing wrong or childish about enjoying quirkiness, but there is something quite asinine about denigrating the simple pleasures of others.

To be fair, SL is not a general advice column. It is rather specific in topic.
Sep 29, 2014 RVPMB commented on Things Got a Little Bit Crazy at the Seattle Housing Authority's Most Recent Community Hearing.
There was an article in the Seattle Times which discusses it a bit. It doesn't clarify the base rates but gives some examples. From the article you can infer that some people are paying less than $200/month in rent. Tenant income is currently a big factor in rates, but the proposed changes may take other factors like apartment size into account:

You should give The Bone Clocks another shot - the narrative shifts perspective between several different characters, to the thing that put you off is not a constant.
Aug 6, 2014 RVPMB commented on The Children of Mass Transit: Seattle Has Lots of Growing to Do.
To be fair the transit planners did a shit job in selecting these trains, which have no overhead storage, no luggage racks, and very little clearance between or under seats for anything, let alone luggage. And these are trains intended to serve the airport. Ridiculous. It's not this woman's fault there is nowhere else to put luggage on the way to or from the airport.
