Seattle - a town that wants to be a mix of Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles so bad it's willing to piss all over it's legacy and uniqueness to cater to the screwballs who move here while raising rent, tearing down your apartment and all your favorite nightclubs and bars and culture and making room for the yuppies who are convinced that paying half a million dollars for a 300ft condo is a "deal" compared to where they were from.
A town that stops dead by 8pm Sunday - Thursday Night - One of America's most tech savvy regions but addicted to 9-5 culture with everyone in the city up at the same time and on the same roads driving their SUVs to Microsoft every morning, clogging up the roads with nobody working remote and we're still trying to figure out why we have the worst traffic in America.
Homeless people fiending for crack and innocent people who will take a screwdriver through the throat if they don't hand over their change. A state with one of the highest unemployment rates in the country and home of the richest man in the world.
Don't come to Seattle talking about unique culture and diversity. We gave that up a long time ago when we handed over our best neighborhoods to the douchebags and the crackheads. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, grunge, "jet city", the Sonics, clean air, underground culture....that's been drifting away for 15 years.
But when you're tired hip hop, shooting crack, high gas prices, douchebags, depression, unemployment and trying to fit in with the hipsters on Capitol Hill by being a poser and gelling down your hair for the coked out look and when you just cant take it anymore you can go 40 minutes east and you're in the mountains or 2 hours west and you've got your feet in the sand on the Pacific Coast with the nasty sand dunes, seaweed and everything else.
Don't listen to those idiots writing about Seattle here....I'm the one telling the truth...
If you want to experience the northwest as described the way Seattle is here, you need to get down to Portland. A town that KNOWS what they are doing. A place that cares about uniqueness and could give a crap less about the rest of the west coast. The way Seattle used to be.
But when you hear people talking shit saying stuff like "this is the greatest city in the world" remember, they're lying. Don't listen to them, listen to me. I've lived here my whole life and I'm telling the truth, not them. I love this city!

It also happens to be a haven to people with -all- interests and styles of life, as shown by another definition to Seattle.
And ohh yeah, we're smart, too.
Home of the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Safeco Field/Seahawk Stadium, Boeing Field, and some great views out into the mountains, especially Mt. Rainier.
See also Seatown, Emerald City, and Rainy City.
What can I say? I live in California, and I hate it. Seattle is my place, and even though it does has it flaws, I still, and always love the Emerald City.
