Doesn't work on Facebook, doesn't work on Flickr, but the animated GIF works here!  30 frames I shrunk down from 24 mp images I was shooting by hand on continuous while out hunting the Link for the mayor.

Illegal in most places to have any flashing lights on your vehicle aside from turn signals.

+Steven McMiert Ah, the old Wikipedia isn't a source bit..  Guess what, it's a good starting point.  If you looked at what I wrote, I said it varies by jurisdiction.  Also police will misapply a law until they are given a lot of grief about it from above.  A district court judge making a ruling may set precedent, or his ruling may apply in only that case or district.  His finding doesn't stop other cops from using the same excuse to pull people over and give them grief.  Have you seen how many cops still don't get that they can't stop you from videotaping them... but threaten you anyway?  In this case the officers achieved their purpose of pulling him over using it as the excuse, and let him sit and stew for a while... mission accomplished.  They didn't even have to write him a ticket to mess with him.  It's all about power and giving them an excuse to screw with you.

The mast was broken?  That antenna mast LISTS at $41.39, the actual antenna part it screws into is only $17.15 LIST.  They are screwing you over.
Already talked about my concerns over possible ramifications of turning in my LEAF without its pre inspection and sure enough, it came back to bite me. But it bit me in a spot I was not prepared for. I got a statement chargin...

ya, I checked into getting it fixed and the main cost was labor. they have to pull the entire headliner to replace it because the base was cracked (whatever happened to flexible antennas?)  when the antenna was broke off. the antenna part that sticks up isn't actually broke. its the black base part that is messed up

Charges against the brothers were dropped... even though the police internal investigation found no wrong doing on the part of the officers (imagine that...) A police officer pushing you back into a wall and then punching two people neither accused or charged with anything in the jaws... that is just appropriate control force... but the people being punched were looking at felony assault on a police officer for swishing his hand away when attacked.

My guess would be that she doesn't actually ski and had her knees locked for to long waiting for the shot to start and bam, down she went.  Used to see it on a regular basis in the Army when standing in formations out on a parade field while the brass droned on and on.

Yes sir, that's exactly what it looked like.  Every parade day a few troops would go down just like that.  Fortunately they all recovered quickly.

I've never leased anything... 
One of the key things coming from a supervisor's meeting earlier this week was that from December 27th to January 20th. There was no days off and that could be extended to mid February.  My 2011 lease ending on January 18th m...

this my 2nd lease ever with the first being my 2011 LEAF but its a great way to get in cheap. a buy would be several thousand down plus $500 a month (or higher) payments. I wont buy this one unless they come up with a way to retrofit a 150 mile battery pack. I will buy my next LEAF because by then they will have the bigger packs.

Raw image processing in Snapseed from last night. This is from my phone, handheld at midnight. Not bad...

Interesting tidbit... as a CWP holder you are not required to tell an officer if you are carrying concealed.  BUT, if asked to show a CWP, you are required to show that.  So, you don't have to ID yourself... but if you are a CWP holder you sorta are... they don't need a reason to ask, just says if an officer asks to see it, you must present it.  Reason I bring that up is that it isn't carrying concealed that triggers that requirement, it is having the permit.  So if they want to ID you without your consent... they can ask to see your permit and if you have one, by law you must present it.  Maybe I shouldn't be posting this because I don't know if any police that want to play games have realized that yet.
This only applies to WA State.

+Scott McElhiney That's all good..lots of text in these laws. It is easy to get confused. As to why I was at the Port: I absolutely love the Port. There is SO much hidden beauty there. All the old buildings make for a fun photo safari. I am working to have more of a calm demeanor, when confronted, but sometimes, the Irish in me just....well...kinda spills out. LoL. It is cool you don't get harassed. Maybe I just look like an asshole. LoL. I think Seattle PD is making great strides to improve their image and not be so aggressive towards law-abiding citizens. I fully support GOOD law enforcement. MUCH of the reason this is happening is because of videos that kept popping up. Bad law enforcement officers are no longer able to hide behind their veil of secrecy. They will be exposed. In this, good officers will also be exposed and hopefully promoted.

So an aftermarket tuned AMG that gets 16mpg can outrun the Tesla Model S in the 1/4 by a second... cool.  The Tesla gets about 100mpge and has about a 300 mile range. The AMG has a 21 gallon gas tank (and uses super?) which will get it about 40 miles further than the Tesla... assuming it isn't caught in traffic jams in which case, the Tesla will probably go further on a 'tank'.  Fuel per tank... Tesla "Free" on the highway if it fills up at a Tesla Supercharger station, otherwise about $6 where I live (6.5 cents a KW).  AMG Mercedes... 21 x $3.79 (price I just filled my Regal GS up at, was $4.29 a couple of months ago)... so about $80.  If you are a high buck suit driving up and down the freeways, you might get 485 miles to a tank... good range on a freeway.  Of course no one needs that amount of power, but yes, it spanks the Tesla in the 1/4 mile with it's extra 200+ horsepower on tap when called upon.  I've driven over 200mph on the Autobahn in Germany between Ramstein and Saarbruchen in an old Ruf Porsche... not a car I'd want to drive everyday.  I think I'd want to drive the Tesla everyday and take the long winding way home.
