A 73-year-old man was pulled over for a routine traffic offense in Seattle the other day: driving without his lights on. Things went considerably worse than they should have when the man reportedly tried to snort a little cocaine right in front of the officer.

As a craft beer enthusiast and aviation geek, I can think of no better place to enjoy delicious beer than while standing among the glory of historic aircraft. Seattle's Museum of Flight is hosting their 13th annual "Hops & Props" in February, and tickets just went on sale today.
A truck burned down on Seattle's I-5 this morning and exacerbated the misery of many morning commutes, but the odd thing about this car-b-que is the burning trail of fuel pouring off the truck. Diesel needs pretty extreme levels of heat to ignite... making this a rare sight indeed.

I know it's a bold claim, to say you've found the best Craigslist car ad ever. When a site exists where you could likely see an ad offering a 1985 Isuzu Stylus in exchange for a wood-burning set and 20 minutes of fellatio, the bar is pretty high.

We already know two inches of snow is a lot for Seattle. Now, thanks to a Jalopnik reader, watch a pair of less-than-smart supercar drivers try taking an Audi R8 and a Nissan GT-R out for a drive in the Seattle "snowpocalypse." Because apparently, in Seattle, size doesn't matter.
What makes owners of cars with zero winter prep want to commute in the snow, on a hill, is beyond me. Seattle drivers apparently can't be bothered to... umm... is that someone putting chains on the REAR TIRES of a FWD Toyota Corolla?
