Seattle has it's ups and downs.

Washington is a beautiful place and Seattle can be wonderful. There is so much to do there. It's home of the Pike Place Market, the Seattle Mariners, and Starbucks. Seattle is near so much. You have the mountains for snowboarding/skiing/hiking. You have the water for boating/swimming. You have everything you need in Seattle/Washington.

The only problems are that Seattle has horrible traffic and it rains a lot. (Although, personally, I don't think the weather is THAT bad year-round.. and I live there.)
Seattle, Washington. In the US.

About as far away as you can go and still stay in the Lower 48. There is an obsession with kings there, with the now destroyed Kingdome, the fact Seattle is in King County, and KING-TV. Of course, the king of the world, Bill Gates, who partly contributed to this and every other entry on this page, lives near Seattle, in Medina.

The most amazing people live here; they're crazy, they're accepting, they're weird, they're stoners, they're straightedge, they're preppy, they're scene, they're emo, they're musicians, they're Christians, they're Athesists, they're soulfull, they're assholes, they're artists, they've never touched a paint brush in their life, they're African, they're European, they're Asian, they're Pacific Islander, they're gay, they're straight, they're tansvesites, they're designers, they're photographers, they're lazy, they're coffee addicts, they're insomniacs, they sleep in until 5 PM, they're bitches, they're smart, they're stupid, they're great dancers, they have no rhythm, they're politicians, they're hippies, they're punks, they're hardcore, they're sweethearts, they're drunks, they're drug addicts, they're soccer mums, they're teachers, they're role models, heroes, they're inspiring, they're disgusting, they laugh like no other, they're partiers, they stay at home, they're old, they're young, they're dying, they're living, they're smokers, they're college kids, they're drop outs, they're drag queens, and they all fit together perfectly.
