Dude, CBS News had this story TWO YEARS ago...

Can' they just buy a completely new TBM (with a decent warranty this time) and start tunneling from the other end of the route, then disassemble both TBMs when they meet up? Isn't this how the Chunnel was done?
Apr 28 SuperSteve commented on What Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Can Do About the Metro Funding Mess.
"By loudly connecting the dots for Seattleites..."

You mean the same Seattilites, including the entire staff of The Stranger, who spent all of last year debating which liberal Democrat should be mayor instead of helping defend a vulnerable Senate seat (which was subsequently lost to the Republicans, solidifying their hold of the Senate)?

Good luck with that.
Apr 16 SuperSteve commented on Uber Drivers Say They Need a Union.
"In addition, the company says there's an appeal process for deactivation that includes a face-to-face meeting, through which they've brought many drivers back on board."

So they'll "deactivate" (fire) someone electronically, but that person then needs to come groveling in person to appeal the decision?

Where's the 'innovation' in that?

Someone needs to sponsor a sign at New Orleans International airport each Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest season inviting tourists to break the law while they're in town.

Do "Stand Your Ground" laws apply to chickens?

Yes, it took 73 years to find the Titanic. But the Titanic wasn't pinging, and for most of that time no one was even looking for it.
Apr 1 SuperSteve commented on Remove Your Studded Tires, People.
Why is it so easy to imagine that many of the people who use studded tires would stop if the name were changed to something that didn't include "stud" in it?

Maybe we need a Legally Binding Slog Poll: What should be the new name for "Studded Tires?"

Re: Class warfare in the Bay Area - there's nothing new with Ellis Act evictions and it has nothing to do with anyone's politics, age, or what sector of the economy they work in. My then-wife and I were "Ellis'd out" of our Santa Monica apartment in 1999 when we were a middle-aged, middle-income couple; our neighbors were all evicted as well, and ran the political/income/sexual-orientation spectrum. The ebb and flow of these evictions pretty closely matches changes in the real-estate market and has absolutely nothing to do with any "antipathy towards the reliably liberal and young folks working in the tech industry who probably voted for Obama."

@39 - what part of my comment "ALL new development should have on-site-parking" don't you understand? There are already far too many cars parked on streets - especially on arterials where they hinder the efficient flow of traffic, particularly buses, and put cyclists at risk of getting 'doored.' It's not realistic to require most existing structures to retrofit on-site parking, but going forward we should acknowledge the need by requiring new homes, condos, apartments, and aPodments to provide on-site parking so that on-street parking is available (except on arterials) for guests, visitors, deliveries, etc.
