Well the bureaucrats who are likely regulating this are probably overworked and understaffed. So it's unlikely they can effectively regulate it.

If they don't have enough people to help, maybe they should consider some H1B's to augment the staff?

No, I'm in agreement with you here. As much as I don't buy from ThinkGeek anymore (unless they have a really, really wantable T-shirt on sale*...because I'm cheap as hell), having something akin to an Amazon Locker is a boon and a win for them.

It's a heck of a smart business strategy and it's going to be interesting (to me at least) to see how successful it is.

*I have a "Fhloston Paradise" t-shirt, and alas, no one ever recognizes the reference. That causes me to be bummed in almost unreasonable amounts.

Supergreen.

If you weren't too fucking lazy to read the article, you might know that it's a combination of $37 million and $20/share. You don't deserve your low ID.

While you were busy 'reading articles', he was busy getting a low ID. BTW, UID 1 never read an article.

It's Seattle. "a new neighborhood" means "30 more minutes from work, minimum".

To be honest though, I don't see why someone would be upset about the design of the homes... the buildings look fine, and don't even look particularly out of place for Seattle architecture. They're not old, that's about it.

'Old'? I bet our European friends will be laughing their asses off at this descriptor.

At least the political stuff, the spying stuff, etc. is 'stuff that matters'. This? Just bandwagon jumping clickbait. Is there no way this story could have been spun to include testing standards, analysis of effect on the game, or something even vaguely, remotely applicable to the audience of this site?
