Your Questions About Pass To Seattle Conditions

Mary asks…

How are the newer Honda Civic’s in winter weather?

So before next winter I’m thinking of getting a honda civic. I live in upstate NY and every other car I see on the road are honda civic’s. I’m just wondering how they are…the pros and cons? How are they in winter weather. How are they in snow and ice? And would you suggest snow tires?

admin answers:

I have had my Civic for over 17 years now and I have also gone through amazing snow storms here in the Seattle area. I wear a ‚Mud & Snow‘ tire that is good for all year round and when it comes to being in the snow. I have passed those idiots that do not know how to drive that are stuck in the trenches with all wheel-drive cars,, just because they have no clue as to HOW to drive in those conditions!

Some, not all, are most likely guilty of arrogance thinking that because they HAVE 4-wheel or All-Wheel-Drive, they can go anywhere. And that is not always the case. Having all-wheel-drive doesn’t paste a red cape with an ‚S‘ on your back,, it just gives you an added benefit to the skills (or lack thereof) you already have.

It is the skills that will make or break you, not whether or not you have all-wheel-drive or not. Chains are a nice add if the conditions are extreme, but when it all comes out in the end,, it is your driving abilities ranging from choices of whether or not to take certain paths, your speed and momentum, the spinning of (or lack of) your tires and knowing when to back off, grip and let the wheels PULL rather than bully your way through. In the snow,,, it IS ALL ABOUT finesse, timing and control, thinking your way thorough situations,, and ultimately your safety and those around you.

There is a good reason every other car on the road are Honda Civic’s,, that is because they are totally reliable and capable to do the job. People have known that for years. 😉

Keep a cool head,, and have fun!

Is it possible to know you’re meant to be something but at the same time pursue a career?

I am in the 9th grade (15 years old) and i know that i am meant to be a mother but i would also like to pursue a career in the business industry (i really like math, and enjoy a challenge).

I had everything planned: do my best and get through high school, go to college, find a nice guy, start dating, get my career going, get married, and have a family. i mean i know things never work out just like that but i figure it would be along those lines.

admin answers:

Yeah, well you are right. Things don’t always work out according to plans made while one is a teenager. I’m a guy (as you can see from my avatar), but I had virtually identical plans as yours. I felt that I would be a good father, so I wanted to marry and have a small family. I majored in Mathemtics at the University of Washington. But there wasn’t really any or too much money in that degree, so I turned to Accounting, which did bring in the money. (Actually, that was my side job – my real job was working in a major supermarket with union pay and benefits).

But the house of cards came crashing down in the year 2000, when I was diagnosed with a rare genetic neurological condition. I can barely walk now (I’m only 45). But the thing is, I’m GLAD that I didn’t have any children, because I would have passed this nasty genetic condition onto them. (It apparently doesn’t really appear until a person reaches about 30 years old). (The best doctors I have seen – and they are the best doctors here in Seattle – even they don’t have a true diagnosis – they are guessing. Best guess is that it’s a genetic mutation).

One never knows the obstacles that life will put in your path.
But you are still free to make your plans and I SINCERELY hope that they come true for you, I really do.

Best wishes from Seattle 🙂

Can bicycles pass on the right while riding next to the curb?

admin answers:

From the Seattle Municipal Code:

SMC 11.44.080

Overtaking and passing on right.

The operator of a bicycle may overtake and pass a vehicle or a bicycle upon the right only under conditions permitting such movement in safety.

Helen asks…

Why cant we just go to war with Exxon instead of Iraq?

I mean, if the government owned Exxon’s oil, gas prices would be much lower, and we wouldn’t have so much bloodshed.

admin answers:

There is a boycott started of Exxon/Mobil


This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from one of his engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton. If you are tired of the gas prices going up AND they will continue to rise this summer, take time to read this please.

Phillip Hollsworth offered this good idea.
This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the „don’t buy gas on a certain day“ campaign that was going around last April or May!
It’s worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!

I hear we are going to hit close to $4.00 a gallon by next summer and it might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come down?

We need to take some intelligent, united action.
The oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn’t continue to „hurt“ ourselves by refusing to buy gas .

It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them.
BUT, whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can Really work. Please read on and join with us!

By now you’re probably thinking gasoline priced at about $2.00 is super cheap. Me too! It is currently $3.49 for regular unleaded in my town, Seattle.

Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at $1.50 – $1.75, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace..not sellers.

With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action.

The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit
someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas! And, we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.

How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can’t just stop buying gas.

But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together to force a price war.

Here’s the idea: For the rest of this year, DON’T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL.

If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.

But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers. It’s really simple to do! Now, don’t wimp out on me at this point…keep reading and I’ll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!

I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) .. And those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)…and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth group of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers .
If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted!

If it goes one level further, you guessed it…..

Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That’s all!

(If you don’t understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do is send this to 10 people…. Well, let’s face it, you just aren’t a mathematician. But I am. So trust me on this one.

How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!!!

I’ll bet you didn’t think you and I had that much potential, did you!
Acting together we can make a difference.

If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. I suggest that we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.

Please keep this going…

Joseph asks…

Is a fish processing job in Alaska worth the money?

what is the work like, avg hours, pay ect. any other info on processing jobs from people with experience would be appreciated, would you recomend it, would you do it again? Also do alot of college kids work at processing plants during the summers or is it more the local crowd? Thanks

admin answers:

Slave labor with a ton of immigrant workers, not a racist remark! Just a heads up because the language barrier is huge. Long, hard, horrible hours and even worse pay. Google the Alaska Job Bank, Alexsys, it has some of job listings with the most info available. The guys that work at the fish plants look exhausted and walk everywhere they go, none drive to work. Plus, housing is next to impossible to find and horrendously expensive if you are lucky to find something decent.

Here is some of the info on a job that is open now in Kodiak, where I lived…

Work up to 16 hours shifts, 7 days a week
• Be able to work in cold, wet conditions in most areas
• You must be able to stand and work for long hours
