Re: “Confusion reigned supreme during the CofC bomb scare

So students get a message that a bomb has been found on campus and Jojojo's advice is to flood out into the streets and gawk? Brilliant plan. We can LOL all we want because this turned out to be a hoax, but not all emergencies (gas leaks, HAZMAT spills, campus shooters) are fun and games.

My perspective on this incident is different from Vijar's: my wife is on CofC staff and my two young children go to pre-school at ECDC there. Cougar Alert is designed to notify staff, students and anyone else that has signed up with notices and instructions in the event of an emergency JUST LIKE THIS, so as to avoid confusion and inappropriate flocking and gawking. I got my notice first from my wife after the Cougar Alert prompted her office to evacuate at least for lunch, and then I checked for updates on twitter which seemed pretty useful.

A particularly un-fun additional layer to the situation was that for whatever reason emails from CofC.edu domains went through 12+ hour delays prior to delivery to several major web-based email providers (it is apparent to me that the delays were on the receiving, not cofc.edu side). So some people were getting emails in real time, others got them the next day.

There is a major fact-finding process ongoing regarding the several significant failures associated with what thankfully turned out to be a hoax. Cougar Alerts will obviously need better vetting, a system of ensuring professors in-class receive notice quickly needs work, and the email delays will need addressing.

Re: “Discovering the past and future of one of COAST's earliest high-gravity brews

Technically, Jack Daniels is a bourbon, but the company chooses to market it as a "Tennessee Whiskey".

Regardless, it's horrible.

Re: “Blu Gorilla Tattoo Studio

Went here with my brother and wife to set up an appointment with Robin, wife places her down payment of $40 for next week, my brother and I email our tattoo ideas. Robin doesn't show up to his appointment, luckily they were able to transfer it over to a brother shop. 3 weeks and 4+ phone calls go by and they haven't responded to our email. No apologies. Taking our business elsewhere. Art work seems great, costumer service not great.

Re: “Bushido

I went a few times when they first opened. The service was terribly slow. The food was hit and miss.

As has been stated by others, these guys do not know how to make sushi rice, for some reason. It is wet and soggy. The flavor is not correct for sushi rice.

The last straw was when I went to get some takeout. I bought quite a bit because I like to snack on it all night. When I got home and took it out, the tuna had thick white stripes. This is not fat, it is connective tissue or gristle from a part of the steak that you should never use to make nigiri sushi with. I tried one piece, and had to spit it out. It was like eating a rubber band. I could not force myself to swallow it.

I drove straight back there, and told them I wanted my money back (which they did without argument). When I got back in the car to go home, I noticed it smelled like someone had farted in there. That's how bad the fish was.

I will never go back.

Hate to be a stickler, but Jack Daniels isn't bourbon.

Re: “Shedding light on Charleston's homeless problem

it sickens me to read all the incompetent victim blaming above, the solution to homelessness IS A LIVING WAGE GREEN JOB ... the jobs ARE NOT AVAILABLE BECAUSE of gangster polluter oil and weapons profiteers controlling our government, bribing most incumbents and challengers to high office.....prEyer always fails the homeless, jobs are the only intelligent answer to prayers, as for alleged addiction, choosing between bitter coffee and a buzz from a dollar can of beer, taking away the pain from sleeping on the hard ground is a human right you bigots above who are too stupid to vote for honest candidates who will shift USA trillions from terrorizing the planet to ending pollution and unemployment www.jill2016.com

Re: “Battle lines drawn over Sgt. Jasper redevelopment

Kimberly....Beach Company likes to say its promoting a bikeable community when in reality it could give a rats ass about Bicyclists or the community. They only say that so they do not have to provide adequate parking for any of their projects - the old ya know "People will Bike Everywhere - they won't have cars" smoke screen. Thats what they told the fools in Mt. P. on the Boulevard Project and the gullible fools on city council there nodded their heads and accepted the Bike Rider theory. Nobody there rides bikes, nobody. They need 2 cars per couple to work 2 jobs to pay the rent there. BTW Beach sold that project as quick as you can blink once completed and made millions. The old build it, sell it, deny deny deny and skip merrily along to the bank yelling K Thanks, Buh Bye over their shoulders.

Re: “Battle lines drawn over Sgt. Jasper redevelopment

Charleston is like a pubescent teen entering adulthood. It's not sure how to react to becoming a grown up real city, and is trying it's damnedest to angrily rebel against it while all along subconsciously knowing it's unavoidable because forces greater than it are in control.
