I'm Moving to Seattle

Look like the nanny state is leaning my way for once, as Seattle considers banning city employees from making microwave popcorn.

It's just a first step, but it's a good one-- they've established that there is a 'public cost' to microwave popcorn, what with all the overcooking and smoke evacuations. From here there's nowhere to go but up.

To me, the smell is every bit as offensive as the cheapest Cambodian cigarette. And if only microwave popcorn can be banned for everyone instead of me just avoiding it, well, that's the wave of the future. I'm sure we can get a study on the carcinogenic effects of the superheated plastics and corn smoke, and if it's inaccurate, so much the better-- it'll make the case almost identical to that of tobacco.

Coming up next-- coffee. No more coffee in public buildings, buildings accessible to the public, or private attached buildings.

Then pets. Because I just can't keep to myself, everything that annoys me and a slight majority must be banned to everyone. You know, for the collective good.
