10-31-08 - The 520 is my nemesis

One accident per hour. Good job people. I believe people should be charged for the cost to their peers when they block a bridge. You cost 10,000 people 30 minutes at $50/hour, you get a bill for $250,000. That money should go into a fund for building new bridges.

In general I'm a big believer that people should pay a fair price for the consequences of their actions. You want to live in a high fire risk zone? Okay, you pay for the firemen to do all the firebreak cutting, you pay for them when they have to come out, and you pay the families $10 million if a fireman dies.

The governmemnt should not be in the business of subsidizing retards who make poor life choices, and we the rest of the populace shouldn't have to foot their bills.

I also believe that when somebody does something retarded like runs out of gas on the 520, you should be allowed to pull over and kick them in the nuts.

My other idea is that we should put all our fancy military hard ware to an actual productive use. If you break down on the 520, you better jump in the lake really fast, because a predator is about to disintegrate your car. Blammo! And the rest of us can drive through the debris. None of this fucking around with sending cops and tow trucks out to the scene.

Ah yes, the price one must pay for CapHill. If I had to live/work in Seattle metro, it would be really damn hard to make that decision again.
