    I'd rather live in fucking Olympia and have to make a 2 hour drive to work every day, than live in Seattle

    I'd do that if I had a smaller vehicle.

    An F150 trying to find parking in downtown Seattle near the Courthouse buildings? Good luck.

    this whole 'i hate you/but please look at me' thing you have with Trotsky, Jack, and Fawlty is getting more than a little pathetic.

    Yeah, sometimes a housekeeping unit is the way to go until you see how things pan out but it's a problem finding a place for all your stuff.

    Worst comes to worse... I could store it at my folks place like 2 hours away.

    Will suck once I find my own spot to get it down to me but still better than paying for some mini-storage that has the potential to get broken into.

    I agree that putting people on ignore is pathetic.

    A lot of threads are dumped to avoid getting posters in trouble or banned. We do not try to get posters banned.

    A Tacoma gets better mileage than an F-150, yeah. But it's not a full sized truck...

    They are certainly a threat to any species that would eat them, like goannas, quolls, king brown snakes and skinks, and they do habitat damage and compete for food. They train quolls not to eat them by throwing out cane toad meat sausages laced with a chemical which induces nausea. Cane toads aren't anywhere near as widespread (feral cats cover something like 99.8% of Australia) or lethal as feral cats despite being much more numerous (each feral cat makes 5-30 kills per day. Estimates of their numbers range broadly, 6 million seems a conservative estimate, with some estimates as high as 23 million). Cane toads might be worse than feral cats in the Northern Terroritory or Queensland, but not Australia as a whole.

    Honestly, I've got no clue. I would expect tacoma to be drastically cheaper as tacoma houses the actual hood part of Washington, but I've never thought or considered living there

    I've known some well off people from tacoma though

    Did that cop pull his pants down and taze his nuts? That seems... excessive.
