I recently moved here from Florida and I see a lot of Porsches on the road. Is it a Dallas thing where everyone goes for a Porsche as soon as they have “made it”. 😀 I love Porsches, by the way. I see a bunch of them in uptown or Highland park mostly.
Is it just me or are there a lot of Porsches in Dallas?

Less than 40% of people aged 18-24 voted in the 2022 midterm election in Washington. Why?
In Washington State, youth turnout was higher than the national average (39%), but compared to people aged 65 and over it was significantly lower (80%). Part of this low turnout is likely that presidential elections feel more momentous to young people, but it can't be the only reason.Read full story
Seattle PSA: If you were impacted by recent layoffs, apply for unemployment immediately.

If you aren’t receiving full benefits such as accumulating vacation and sick time, you should be eligible.Read full story
When it rains, this is the most deadly part of Chicago
I worked at Oak Street as a lifeguard and on rainy days we would have to have a lifeguard stand there to get CFD on scene and tell people to get out of their cars. Fortunately as a firefighter people usually spin out while attempting to slow down so unfortunately it is worse for accidents. But the most dangerous/deadly area of lakeshore drive is between McCormick place and 57th. . . It’s not a race track and for the love of god neither is the Dan Ryan!Read full story
Remember this gem of a McDonalds?
I can't believe we are in our third iteration of the Rock N Roll McDonalds. Honestly the first one was the best. Just a normal McDonalds packed with Elvis memorabilia. It was packed to the gills with Rock n Roll and pop culture memorabilia from the 1950’s and 1960’s. It was replaced with a badly needed larger McDonald’s with a decent design, but gutted all of the kitsch awesomeness on the inside.Read full story
Someone's had a rough week. This is classic Chicago
I walked out once to find my catalytic convertor stolen. It was annoying, but not a major inconvenience because I could afford to eat the loss and because my catalytic convertor replacement was relatively cheap (~$350). I feel for anyone who has this happen to them and it just creates a financial burden they can't handle.Read full story
King County Metro bus nearly hit me at bus stop while not picking me up
Today I was waiting for the last Route 301 bus of the day near the Dale Turner YMCA towards downtown Seattle and saw the the bus about 300 feet away and I got to the roadside with at least 15 seconds for the driver to notice me. I did not expect the bus to not decelerate at all and I had to withdraw my hand and step back and maybe not get a concussion from the side mirror.Read full story
Washington State voted to end time changes in 2019. Why are we still doing this?
I would rather we stay on standard time myself. People complain about the "depressive" nature of sun setting too early, but I'm not particularly bothered by that. What I hate is waking up and getting dressed and leaving the house when it's still completely dark out.Read full story

My roof just got fixed last week. Does anyone know if this will just be a tropical storm?
I'm seeing lots of different models, but I don't really know how to read them. We've still got some localized flooding left over from Ian, and would really love to avoid packing our dogs and cats through flooded water and pushing our car.Read full story
Anyone else think these rentable scooters and bikes are an eyesore? They litter the sidewalks everywhere.
I get that they're convenient, and don't get me wrong, I love the service and usage they're providing. But they can get ugly littered around everywhere. They should have specific docking stations like Citi Bikes in New York City. That'd make it a lot prettier, and they could charge people who don't return them.Read full story
How do Dallas locals handle these severe storms?
I’ve lived here for 2 years. and I really struggle with these tornado threats. I have massive amounts of tornado anxiety. Before i moved everyone I talked to would say “I’ve never experienced a tornado” “there don’t actually happen that much” “you don’t have to worry”Read full story
When is the weather going to get better (colder)? It's November and the weather is still 77 degrees...
I've been in Dallas for two years already, but this year was so hot. I love Texas and won't even think of moving, but I'm surprised it's still this hot in November. I've heard real fall starts the week of Thanksgiving...Read full story
What are your go-to activities now that it’s dark by 5pm?
It’s that time of year again. Looking for suggestions on what to do after work during the week, non-skiing, and not all alcohol focused. Trying to avoid hibernating by myself at home/combat seasonal blues.Read full story
FOOD ALERT: Inside the Seattle 7/11 Regional Warehouse
If you eat any refrigerated food at 7/11 then you're pretty brave, its thrown in bins like basketballs in the chill room with items constantly falling on the dirty floor [your salads too] and picked back up and put back in. People will purposely step on the lunchables in attempt to damage it enough to get them put into the break room as damaged, a lot of the times they just go back in the bin. I've never seen anyone wash their hands either, only thing the bathroom really gets used for it nasty temps peeing on the walls and for the alcoholics to drink in the stall and hide their beers in the trash can. Yeah the bathroom smells like hobo pee and beer. Don't get me started on leadership, one was let go for stalking a temp after being denied. We had a slower temp one day and the fool opened a nesquick and started drinking it as he put food away, we asked him what he's doing the only boss who actually cared would be in soon, so he just closed it and put it back in the bin, we all just looked at each other laughed and kept working.Read full story
Car battery died at the Denver Airport - PSA for anyone this happens to
I had to fly out of state to visit family over the weekend, and like the genius I am, I left one of the lights in my car on and my battery was completely dead when I got back. Exactly the kind of thing you want to return to after a day of traveling.Read full story
Lakewood voters: is there anyone I should actually write in here? Or just leave it blank?
Obviously RTD is in a big mess and the ones in charge are to blame. Do your research on who your current local RTD board member is and don't just put that name in!. However, do viable write-ins need to be registered in any way? ie If we all write in John Smith and he's an actual person in the district, will he actually get elected?Read full story
Denver, let's have a winter driving refresher
Off to a bad start already. 50 car pileup to kick off the season. I don't care if you're a native or a transplant, it looks like we could use a quick refresher on winter driving in Denver.Read full story
Lone Tree Golf Course watering ~3" of snow last night 🤦
This was one of maybe 5 huge sprinklers running last night at 11:15 pm. Some people just really need the moisture I guess. FYI I did fully stop to take this, and also there were no other cars around.Read full story
Confession: I don't understand what "Rip City" is supposed to mean?
I sat down for some happy hour at The Box Social (previous owners) and I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup. My soup came out with RIP City written in crème fraiche and so I asked aloud, “why does my soup say R.I.P. City?”. The bar was in stitches.Read full story
