Under the dome

I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in: The Tacoma Dome this weekend is hosting CannaCon, a retail convention of marijuana-related products, seeking to take advantage of cannabis’ now legal status in Washington state. Organizers stress that the convention is strictly business. No space is being set aside for smoking or otherwise consuming marijuana.

All the same, tickets for the nosebleed seats for next weekend’s Eagles’ concert at the dome are now going for premium prices.

Anybody want to buy a case of tiny packages of pretzels? The FAA is quickly putting the kibosh on extending sharing services — like Uber for cars and Airbnb for vacation housing — to air service. The FAA has shut down a service called Airpooler that sought to connect pilots with passengers willing to split fuel costs and other expenses.

Well, so much for AirBuzz. Might as well cancel our Amazon.com order for a drone and a lawn chair.

Cancel that order and send us dog collars and cellphones: A Spokane man with a security business has attached cellphones to the collars of his two German shepherds. The dogs hear and follow his commands even when he’s not in their line of sight.

And rather than scratching the dogs behind the ears, all he has to do is set the phones on vibrate.
