This morning, around 8a.m. I got on the 36 line heading downtown. On the way, passing DocuSign Tower, I saw a tall, large man dressed in something reminiscent of Jack the Pumpkin King's outfit, while also sporting a Jason Vorhees hockey mask as he pushed an overstuffed shopping cart around.

I reached the end of the line at Pike street and on exiting I immediately saw a likely homeless man passed out with needles around him.

I went on to enter Target - and I say this with no exaggeration - I had to immediately dodge a man with an armful of merchandise being chased by loss prevention as I crossed the threshold into the store.

Then I went to Pike Place Market, and in a stairwell ran into a woman publicly urinating upright, wearing a prosthetic that allowed her to aim her flow like a penis. I remember it in detail despite immediately averting my eyes because it was so shocking and unusual.

While riding the 36 back home, at the 5th and South Jackson stop, I saw a young man freebase black tar heroin at the bus stop.

Seattle Bingo in less than two hours.

Edit: My first sticky! Woooooooooooo!

No wonder leftists living in these cities have been content quarantining, now called self-isolating, for the last 20 months. Doesnt explain it though where i live in a town if 5,000 and virtually no crime. Our junkies tend to live with their parents.

I was on heroin for roughly 10 years, moved from Jersey to Washington in with my cousin trying to get clean, which eventually worked. I would never move back now that I'm in Arkansas, but Washington did have great recovery for those seeking it.

You might be surprised at how dense some of these people can be. I remember a story on the old t_d by some woman who said that when she was younger, she suppressed her instincts so well that she parked her car in a spot surrounded by a bunch of black dudes, and then was beaten and I think raped too. Afterwards, she blamed herself for it, because she was part of the society that kept the black man down.

She said it took her 20 years to undo the brainwashing. That's as good as forever in most cases.

Even when I lived there in 2009 it was absolute shithole. Funny how fine the line is from "quirky, weird and charismatic" to "degenerate, piss-smelling 3rd world country"

My normal experiences:

  • Seeing junkies nodding off everywhere or screaming at passerby or nothing in particular.

  • Ripped up porno mags everywhere. I mean everywhere. Strewn across the sidewalk.

  • Seeing syringes everywhere, but especially in playgrounds

  • Fucking weirdo degenerate faggots who ran out on their wives and kids to pursue an "alternative lifestyle"

  • Homeless shitting whenever, wherever

I lived there in the 80s and early 90s and it used to be a spotless, beautiful city that I measured all others against. Fond memories of the Saturday Market running during the summer and the amusement park rides along the waterfront... Powell’s Books was a regular haunt for $0.50 paperbacks and then sitting in Pioneer Square drinking a Coffee People brew waiting for friends. I’ve seen a few videos in the last couple of years and can’t even recognize it anymore.

It’s really a shame since my kids ask about where I grew up and I’m not even willing to bring them. The city I grew up in no longer exists.

I used to live in Portland, can’t remember a specific day, but I do remember on 2 occasions seeing people taking a shit in the middle of the road with cars honking at them. I got yelled at daily by crazy people who smelled like pee and poo and who often had pee and poo visible.

And of the 4 days of my work week I had to take the bus (could only afford parking on Saturday) I managed to step in pee multiple times and even sat in pee once.

And the one day a week I could avoid the pee mobile and afford parking at work, would often result in a protest where all the roads were shutdown, conveniently surrounding my work, AFTER I arrived for my 6-2 shift, so I would be held prisoner at work until 4 or 5 as I heard people chant about whatever bullshit.

This. I toured loss prevention at Target when I worked there in college. (circa 2010) They are told to monitor, stalk, but never apprehend the thief. When I worked at The Fresh Market we noticed a customer who always stole, and the managers would not let the staff near her and would let her walk out with hundreds of dollars of product stuffed in her ugly cardigan. We wanted to call her out and stop her but they wouldn't let us.

QMAB 4 points ago +4 / -0

I was in a smaller military base city. I'm convinced it was to avoid lawsuits. We didn't have armed security, but they were supposed to be the people checking at the door in my store.

The theft wasn't so bad, so if you sent a plainclothes to follow them and watch them, they usually put shit back on their own. I think they did this because it reduced harassment lawsuits in the parking lot and deterred weak-willed thieves. It also allowed them to determine if front end staff or overnight stockers stole items in volume, which I think was their main focus when I worked there. They have "Loss" AKA lost profit from petty theft already factored into their pricing structure.

Regular staff were not allowed to pursue, only security and LP agents. I never saw either chase someone out of the store.

That's exactly what shocked me. Not that someone was shoplifting, but that they were actually being chased, because I'd never seen LP at that Target before. Only seen it at Ross up till now. I guess corporate finally decided to throw the store a bone, but it's obviously not having an impact.

3
FireannDireach 3 points ago +3 / -0

I haven't seen anyone chased in SF past the front door, but smaller stores still yell at the bums, and chase them out, so they can steal less. The bigger chains just don't bother, or close down.

The number of times loss prevention has tackled a shoplifter in my home city causing both fire department and police to show up is hilarious and sad at the same time. Police get called to arrest the person/charge them- but suddenly they have respiratory distress. So police call out fire rescue, which then offers the rescue ride but it’s roughly an 800$ bill - and police still get to process them after hospital. Suddenly they can breath fine- and police take them away.

This is a Walmart I’m talking about of all places.

Known to the retail world as LP. They're usually behind the undercover secret shoppers looking for thieves. Target still uses them, GameStop has an LP division, as do most of the big box or specialty retailers.

I thought Seattle was just allowing people to come and go with whatever as they please though, so it still surprises me that LP would be doing anything right now.

Still, I believe this story. I live close to Seattle and I've seen LP running after people on more than a few occasions.

FireannDireach 4 points ago +4 / -0

Costco still has/had undercover, too. From what I recall, they got paid more, too, because of the shit they have to deal with. I haven't been in a Costco in a while, because there's no real deals there anymore (I sat down over the summer and compared prices, and Safeway was hands down cheaper), so I don't know if they still have people running out the front door, like they used to.

3
indigo5d 3 points ago +3 / -0

Costco has fallen into the category of "Get Woke, Go Broke". I stopped shopping there as well, the prices aren't what they used to be, and here in WA state they run the stores like tyrants.

Even when for a brief time the mask ordinates loosened up, Costco was a "no mask, no entry" store.

These stores have to realize at some point that they're not losing money because of the pandemic, it's because the people have had enough.

It's because the Chinese people want to have property in another country so they can get an exit visa when things go south in China. Canada and US are prime targets to stash a house and a second source of income (Usually hotels).

micaarzur 10 points ago +10 / -0

Yeah it 100% kills them, they become numb to their body’s natural warning and self preservation instincts due to being completely zonked out on whatever drugs.

As far as the “joggers”, us white people are better suited to cold climates as that’s the type of climate we evolved in, one of these adaptations being our low melanin to better absorb UV light, though I’m sure there’s many more unknown advantageous adaptations to better handle cold weather.

I just find this kind of stuff interesting. It’s not racist to talk about it IMO, it’s just acknowledging facts of reality. Not saying it makes us “better”, just different. Black people have advantages over us for living in hot climates. No need to pretend biology doesn’t exist.

krzyzowiec 4 points ago +4 / -0

The US army did a study and found that blacks are far more vulnerable to frostbite than whites. I recall a story about some Haitian “refugees” fleeing to Canada that literally lost their fingers to the cold.

Blacks also suffer from chronic Vitamin D deficiency because they obviously can’t absorb as much sunlight due to the melanin content of their skin as they would closer to the equator. They simply do not belong in this climate.

I work in Seattle, I'm a delivery driver in the city. This guy isn't lying. Im a recovering heroine addict, almost five years clean and it breaks my heart. Liberals here think they are being tolerant and showing the homeless love, they are not. They are allowing these people to wallow in their mental health & addictions. The homeless aren't perfect and the majority of them I have lost sympathy for because theyre young to middle aged adults who CHOOSE that lifestyle over a "normal" one. Others are just lost. I saw this guy, early twenties, in the middle of first Ave with shoelace around his arm, dancing in a circle, while at the same time trying to find a vein. I literally could see the brown liquid in the syringe & that was the first time I came face to face with the drug since getting clean. It wrecked me because I remember being that much of a junkie & to think that if I was in a place like Seattle at the height of my addiction, I'd be dead today. They incentive criminal/drug behavior, they do nothing to sway it. It hits home. I moved here thinking I was liberal to find out im a bleeding heart conservative. I have nothing in common with these people anymore.

You really can't buy your way away from this problem in any meaningful sense because the laws are just not enforced.

I'm old enough to have experienced NYC in the 70's. How people behave is worse - mostly - but we don't have the burnt down blocks of buildings and stripped cars and trash everywhere.

Yet.

Crime in LA/SF has been slowly boiling hotter for years, before this current insanity started - muggings in SF were getting regular, especially to tourists, right before covid hit, joggers were snatching phones and cameras daily.

It can still get a lot worse. It's bad, don't get me wrong, but it can sink even lower, and the further it goes down, the faster it will get worse.

I walked out of my house this morning and saw the two does that live in my yard along with the youngin's they gave birth to last spring

as I drove down the gravel road, I saw more of the local wildlife and one of my neighbors cutting up some firewood

i went to the local store. it is a little convenience store run by a couple and their two sons. they bust their asses making that place work and it is really an amazing little store. they have an awesome beer selection.

the owners are totally based. they love their country, support Trump and even put their own "I did that" sticker on their cash register. the mom goes to school board meetings and is a major fighter against CRT

we always take time to chat about what a fuck Biden is, how we wish Trump would hurry and get back and other things that are going on. if there are other customers, they join in as well

it is everything that MAGAs in a nutshell

then it is back up the mountain to my COVID free, mandate free, BLM free, peaceful neighborhood filled with salt of the earth people and their beautiful families

the only homeless I ever see is the occasional squirrel who's nest got blown down in a windstorm.

I used to take the bus from 3rd and Pine to the University District, about 30 years ago. 3rd and Pine was one of the sketchiest parts of downtown back then. I'd often catch the bus after the latest ferry of the night had dropped me off (coming from Bremerton), so probably 1030 - 11pm when you would expect most of the shitbags to be out and about. Aside from a few homeless people, it wasn't much different than any other city street and I never felt like I was in any kind of danger. Occasionally someone would try to bum some money off me but not in any kind of menacing fashion. There were actually more panhandlers at the time hanging outside the Safeway in the University District.

Now, I wouldn't ever be in that part of downtown at that hour, and probably avoid it during the day. It's a terrible shame what has happened to the city of Seattle. Although it was always a liberal city, it seemed more libertarian liberal when I was growing up and certainly not this marxist version of liberal that we have today.

I've recently started to think that the turning point may have been when the music scene exploded in the early 90s. Suddenly everyone wanted to live in Seattle because it was so cool and alternative (which was pretty overblown), so all the trendy hipsters started to want to live there and started moving in.

I haven't lived up there for quite a number of years but I visit fairly often. I don't think I'd be too worried to be down there but my nieces were living downtown and, while not so bad that they immediately moved away, they both had a fair number of unpleasant interactions with the street shitters. That was unheard of when I lived there.

I drove my daughter around UW about a year ago and was showing her where I lived. The route I used to walk to school was loaded with encampments and filth. It's sad to see and could easily be cleaned up if anyone on the city council cared about the city.

I suspect the residents will eventually get fed up with it and demand some action.

I have an opportunity to come back to a job that's opening up at Whidbey Island within the next couple years and am considering it, but will probably wait until my older daughter is in college. Hopefully she will get into UW so we can follow her up there.

Despite its flaws, Seattle is a great place. If conservatives abandon it, it will only get worse.

Then I went to Pike Place Market, and in a stairwell ran into a woman publicly urinating upright, wearing a prosthetic that allowed her to aim her flow like a penis. I remember it in detail despite immediately averting my eyes because it was so shocking and unusual.

Oh for fuck's sake, the rabbit hole you went down today, is related to the rabbit hole I went down today.

Here's the rabbit hole I went down.

So I'm at this trade show and there's this booth with a bunch of prints from some artist that paints Star Wars, Marvel, and other movies characters... sitting on the toilet. The girl working the booth was really sketchy and I overheard her saying, "we can't tell you who the artists are, they are anonymous... I can't even tell you if I painted any of these." So I get home and start searching, and pretty quickly found their website. Of course it turns out they're a collection of batshit crazy leftist women named "Bucket" and "Gadget".

" I am Bucket and I arrived on our planet thousands of years ago, from a race of other dimensional beings made of light, magic, nerdy science fiction, and gluten. Since protruding into your dimension, I have educated the greatest artists of the world about capturing the beauty of humanity in art. From the ancient Greeks to Michelangelo, the Impressionists and even all that Jackson Pollock nonsense, I have had a direct influence on your exploration of art. I since decided to focus on highlighting humanity's stupidity and hilarity, because, well after all this time, I find humanity to be stupid and hilarious. Not being human, I have no gender, but prefer to be identified with females as the only ones on your planet who seem to know what the hell they're doing. In my own dimension, my entire body is a beautiful form of starlight and cosmic magnificence, but in your dimension I manifest as a small pink lump of some rubbery stuff with eyeballs. My given name in my own world is unpronounceable in any human tongue, but roughly translates as "cylindrical vessel of light and knowledge, also a convenient way to carry stuff with a terribly uncomfortable handle". I enjoy long walks on the beach, the Beatles, and have a strange affinity for nerdy science fiction movies and glutenous pastry products."

Gadget feels the fun whimsy of her work is important in these strange times of political tension, climate change, indigestion, and terrible Netflix sitcoms.

...and of course, due to the nature of their... "art"... right there in the image search was a bunch of ads and pictures of women pissing out of a funnel. The "portable urinal for women".

FUCK YOU, CLOWN WORLD.

Last time I was in Seattle ~2018 or so, we were walking into a gourmet restaurant and a homeless girl pulled down her sweatpants and sprayed piss all over the sidewalk in dramatic fashion. People around me were like meh, see it all the time.

Went to Seattle yesterday and could not sit in a Burger Joint because I wasn't vaxxed. No tip Drove down 4th st through Downtown. Urban Campers everywhere. Shops closed and boarded up. I used to work in downtown IT. I am so glad I retired. The only reason I went was to get stuff at Archie McPhee's for the grandkids.

If you showed this world to Americans in the 1950's they would think we are living in some post-apocalyptic nightmare.

My husband saw a man taking a poop next to the Court House in Minneapolis.

That's got to be on the BINGO card.

Hey fren, this my be hippy dippy, but I’ve been hearing these people on Dori Monson’s show, it’s at least a small key chain light in a giant shitstorm. Big fucking red pill too, Seattle keeps trying to shut them down since they actually are making a huge difference (can’t have that!)

Maybe see how you can help if your interested.

I've heard of that charity. They recently helped resolve an issue with an individual affectionately known as "Lawnmower man"(bike chopping noises) into housing.

Before that, I'd only seen them referenced in my lefty neighborhood FB group; they were labeled as a hate group and posters referring to them would be banned. I left the group not long after that.

Wow, yeah that’s beyond what I thought, I knew they’d come down hard on anyone interfering with their plans, but calling a hate group is really crazy. The little I know about them is they started by just getting together and picking up garbage, the lady in charge seems super cool, they moved into getting homeless people in shelter and most effectively recruiting them into helping other homeless people into shelters, a strategy like that can really be effective. I’ll kick em a few bucks myself just after hearing a few interviews. Sorry to shill, but the message made me happy, figured worth a share.

Sounds like the only thing you missed was getting hit upside the head by a flying Alaskan salmon wrapped in freezer paper.

It wouldn't be so bad if the leftists were forced to stay in the hell holes they create, but they are moving to red states like where I live to bring the chaos and carnage here as well.
