And quick thinking, as well. I knew a guy who was 23 when he had his first stroke. He'd been lifting weights at a gym, sat down, and - boom. We tend to think of strokes as something that happens to out-of-shape old farts, but it's not the case.

I've a feeling they're working toward that.

I've not heard of businesses shutting down at SeaTac, but then, it's mostly hotels, parking garages, and the airport. They can raise prices as much as they want.

Life in prison ought to be brief, from the look of things. She got tripped up when she used one of the handymens' food stamp cards.
They'll all be government workers; well-compensated ones.

They were probably determined by professionals to be obese....

You've never had Jovial Synovial? Those were the days....

Well, yeah, but that was before SETI got more systems involved. And they still pick up terrestrial signals. The whole point of microwave ovens is to generate radio waves that move water molecules - that's what heats stuff up. It's also why I choose not to stand near an operating microwave oven. They supposedly have shielding - but they still screw up radio antennas. Hum. It's interesting that you missed the newer addition to the lexicon; it's been around for a while.

Nope, that's Seattle. Nobody has a headquarters in Portland.
49 weeks? Not likely - even they don't go that far.
Isn't that why Obama and Mooch are where they are?
You've never dealt with this particular illegal alien, I presume.
Probably just to open and close the door; I don't touch those handles without protection.

Yep, they'd have to hire an army of public employees to check public restrooms for compliance. I'd not considered the ADA suits, but I'm sure you're right: too high, too low, too loud - so many lawsuits, so little time!

I read that story on the $70k minimum. Kind of interesting, though it didn't seem well thought-out. An insecure and crappy boss is always going to be insecure and crappy. So even if you're making $70k, you're going to be held down - which means that you won't be happy. Best to bail.
They seem to figure that they're entitled. We used to have a pretty good rock band here, back in the 70s. They called themselves the Dead Kennedys.

Houses, yes - but I don't think they ever went higher than about two stories in wood construction until now. That B.C. building looks pretty cool, though.

I thought much the same; it looks a lot like our hospital directional signs. Of course, being that she's geriatric.... At this point, I'm not sure that the "winners" matter much; you elect "Republicans" to office, and they immediately start behaving like little Democratics.

I don't know about society, ZZ - but it certainly seems to be what taxpayers are for.
Yeah, it's kind of an image, isn't it? Hundreds of autonomous drones shot into the air from "tube launchers".We're getting closer to Snow Crash every day.

Hey, it's a free widget! It always identifies me as coming from San Francisco now - because Typepad gave me a few months of free access to resolve a dispute, then forgot to change the IP address back. Heh. Probably exactly why Roberts wasn't selected.

Weird, isn't it? Parents are no longer allowed to evaluate their children and decide whether or not the kids are ready for that next step - it's now a state issue.
I'd second your second sentence. Heck, I'd shoot video!
