“All those ninnies have it wrong. The best thing about Seattle is the weather. The world over, people have ocean views. But across our ocean is Bainbridge Island, an evergreen curb, and over it the exploding, craggy, snow-scraped Olympics. I guess what I’m saying: I miss it, the mountains and the water.”
- Consistently cool weather. The PNW is blessed with incredibly mild and comfortable temperatures all year-round.
- There’s rain, all of the time, 100% guaranteed. How else do you think everything stays so perfectly lush and green?The richness of the rain made me feel safe and protected; I have always considered the rain to be healing — a blanket — the comfort of a friend. Without at least some rain in any given day, or at least a cloud or two on the horizon, I feel overwhelmed by the information of sunlight and yearn for the vital, muffling gift of falling water.” ― Douglas Coupland
- It’s home to four mountain ranges; the Cascade Range, the Olympic Range, the Coast Range and parts of the Rocky Mountains."Though broken by crags, bluffs, and some deep canyons, the long swell of the Cascades is generally seen as a green pedestal for majestic white volcanoes… Viewed from certain vantage points, these giants stand out in solitary splendour, but they stand only slightly apart from a breathless company of mountain giants, all looking romantically steep and unattainable and top-heavy with ice." ― Dorothy Krell
- There’s always a plethora of outdoor activities to explore. Whether you enjoy water sports, hiking, gardening, golf, or even skateboarding, The PNW offers a wide range of activities for outdoor enthusiasts. You don’t have to go very far to experience nature’s playground.
- Old-growth forests. The region’s wet and cold climate has led to the growth of extensive forests featuring some of the largest trees in the world. The region’s coastal forests are considered temperate rainforests.“I miss it if I’m not in it for any length of time; I don’t feel comfortable. I want trees and I want frequent rain.” ― Murray Morgan
- It’s home to Vancouver & Seattle. This part is self explanatory.
- Residents are actively committed to the environment. The PNW means business when it comes to cleaning up the planet. Link light rail systems, one of the strongest recycling programs in the country, and a real desire to lead by example inspire Pacific Northwesters to embrace every environmentally friendly, innovative idea out there, from alternative fuel sources to harnessing wind and solar energy, to returning to tap as the primary source for water.
"The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It’s not only their unbelievable stature, nor the colour which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time." ― John Steinbeck
- It’s home to a distinct group of animals. Critters in the PNW are so characteristic of the region.
- Coffee roasted in the PNW is better than coffee from anywhere else. The reason that coffee in this region (mainly Seattle) is so good is simple: The people are insane. They are seemingly normal humans who spend their lives figuring out the very best way to roast a bean. On top of that, meticulous, artisanal bean-roasting is not only seen as a legitimate career, it proves its worth by being a lucrative one as well. An overabundance of coffee connoisseurs make for a wildly competitive coffee market, which means that it’s totally normal for some random donut shack to have their own in-house bean roaster. It’s weird. And it’s awesome.
- And last, but not least, the PNW is home to the future nation of CASCADIA!
"The Northwest coast is a land of contrasts. At times it is wild and wave-battered, at other times quiet and restful. All along it’s length there is variety: long, sandy beaches, steep headlands, lush pasture, rocky covers, patches of deep forest. This is a place for photographers, hikers, picnickers, campers, and for those who want nothing more than a few relaxing moments in beautiful, unpeopled surroundings."
Morning-after pill available over the counter to all ages in US
USA TODAY: A federal judge in New York has ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make the “morning-after” pill available over the counter and without prescription to girls of all ages.
The ruling overturns a decision in 2011 by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius which barred over-the-counter sales of the controversial pill to girls under 17. Sebelius’ decision itself had overruled an FDA recommendation to widen availability.

HOLY SHIT BLESS THE PHARMACIES
do almost 20,000 tumblr users really think that granting 12-year-olds the ability to abort a child without even parental consent, from a CVS, is a good idea because I’m now terrified, because you guys claim to think they’re not even mature enough to have a tumblr or go on a date, but aborting a baby is a-ok
I love your “logic” on this site.
You don’t know how these work, do you? This is birth control that may prevent pregnancy up to 72 hours after unprotected sex. It’s not the same as an abortion, if anything they’re anti abortion pills in that the prevent you from needing one. Another thing, plan b does not hurt an unborn baby. If the egg has already implanted, the pill does absolutely nothing.
I think giving a 12-16 year olds the chance to correct a life ruining mistake is much better than forcing them to be a parent. If you think they aren’t ready to make a choice to get rid of a child, what makes you think they could take care of one? If anyone wants to bring up adoption/foster care, I’d like the bring up the fact that In the U.S. 400,540 children are living without permanent families.
The problem is people don’t seem to realize how fucking expensive, time consuming, stressful and generally difficult it is to be a parent. Most adults struggle with it, we don’t need more kids raising kids.
