I hate Snohomish County. The only place I've ever gotten tickets...

Basically camp right in front of Seattle Outlets and if you're driving a bit fast... boom.

So question regarding bringing stuff back across the border

If me and my GF went down Friday after work and came back Sunday night we would be under the exemption of the $450 each or whatever amount

If neither of us bought anything and I bought a set of $800 tires would we be able to use both our total value towards the tires or should I get her to buy two of them and I buy two of them?

haha I don't know how I feel about people selling propane tanks that are half empty when you don't know whats inside of it.

Also, when I bought my propane tanks, I believe there was a deposit or a recycle thing.

You'll be fine, they usually ask for the total amount.

That's what happens when you leave a leaking canister of acetylene in your car overnight.

Witnessed some guy getting arrested earlier tonight. Got it on video too.

Quick summary of what happened:
-Transit Police responds to a disturbance
-Police smells alcohol in the guys breath
-Guy refused to present ID or give a name
-Police threatens to arrest him
-Guy yells "YOU AREN'T EVEN COPS!"
-The police start cuffing him up as we walk into our train

If you go down Friday afternoon and come back Sunday night...then wouldn't you be over 48 hours? That would entitle you to $800 exemption each

Speaking of Transit Police...they are RUTHLESS at fare checks. I always double check that I have my college ID on me because I'm not interested in fighting a ticket in court. They even check if you signed the back of the UPass.

I have no idea why they did this. The bus left and so did the officers and I was left to walk down the Barnett highway in the middle of the night. The officers said it wasn't their problem and I should have brought the right amount of change. I called the next day to speak to a liaison and was directed to BC Police Act Website. I submitted a complaint and never heard anything. Placing the importance of collecting an additional 50 cents well above protecting me from having to walk for several hours down a highway at night seems like a poor directive for policing our transit and the systems in place to have some feedback from the force for their actions were useless. I have little faith or support for the department after that night.
I've only had one experience with TP where they weren't such hardasses. I was caught without a fare at Royal Oak and they pulled me off at Metrotown, but since I didn't BS the officer he ripped up my ticket.

Since then I always pay my fare, I pay Addfare even if it's close to 6:30pm. Bus drivers are lenient (like on the #135) but I think I'd probably get a ticket at 6:29pm for not paying Addfare.

If you know u have to take transit it might be a good idea to have change on you. Think of all the crack heads and idiots they deal with on a daily basis but I do agree it seems like they are on a power trip sometimes.

i actually keep a transit ticket on me "just in case". my thinking is that you might spend teh change by accident. you only use the ticket for transit...

Anyone know what happened with the Kandoo Restaurant/Bakery/Market in Poco? it's beside the Treehouse Pub in that little apartment/market complex

Normally go there to buy some cow tongues, went today and they were closed down, was wondering if they moved or are renovating or went bust? there's no sign posted :/

Anyone know of any other places I can grab some cow tongues?
