Social media can be quite telling sometimes. Take the local elections, for example. Viewers were asked to fill in the blank on the following statement: "Tonight's elections were _____". The answers – dozens of them – were quite telling.

Katy answered first, saying simply "not what they should have been".

Others were more upbeat, like Bettie, who said "deserving". Answers in the positive included "Fantastic!", "good this far", and "I enjoy the trends! Liberty and Freedom come one mind at a time".

But not everyone was happy to see the results turn out the way they did. There were quite a few viewers who were disappointed in the way Washington I-1183 turned out – the proposal to get the state government out of the business of selling liquor.

"I can't believe spokane [sic] is being run by drunks who in their right mind would ever think this was a good idea in the first place," said Kindra.

Shelly said "alcohol will be so much easier to get now. It wasn't a good idea, plus now there will be so many people out of work."

Clearly those who were upset about the results on Tuesday night were those who didn't like the outcome of the vote on I-1183.

    KHQ.COM - Most mothers can only hope by the time their children grow up and move out of the house, they've learned all the necessary things to be a successful adult, including the basic knowledge that a turkey must be cooked in an oven, or perhaps in a smoker... NOT in a microwave. For this reason a new prank-challenge going around on Facebook is resulting in some hilarious text conversations between mothers and their grown children.
