I would not recommend the vicious-looking gang of youts that hangs out in south park blocks and deals weed, crack, and meth. their specific clientele is teenagers from Gresham. Ever wonder why all the Gresham teens hang out in Po DT on weekends? yup, for the pleasure of it. Anyway, these guys are usually between Salmon and Madison and will probly rob u and scram to the dark corners of PSU, leaving u to cry for mommy like the dumbass u are. There's even a few negroes among them. I bet these are the douchebags that Webehigh mentioned. I realize that site is long-outdated but history repeats itself every semester.

Re: “Oh, the Regrets

Ditto, Graham. And I'll have no trepidation marking his name on my 2012 Portland mayoral ballot.

Re: “I Had No Friends

I, too, went to college in California and made not one single friend. Luckily, I got the hell out of there after a year and transferred to Seattle U. Now I have lots of friends. And I love it here.

Re: “Why "Stripping" Trumps "Education"

What about the vast majority of women who are dealt hands in the genetic lottery that don't endow them with the physical attractiveness necessary to make a living doing sex work? Can they skip college too, and become professional servants for us pretty people? I'd rather pay $20 to have my carpet vacuumed than get a lap dance.

Re: “I Had No Friends

That first paragraph kills me. I lived in LA for 3 years and they don't change much after they graduate... Just mix in a healthy dose of those who skipped college for acting classes that only teach them to look convincing when they tell each other they're going to "make it" and there's LA for you.

Re: “I Regret Not Regretting Not Going to College

College seems to be a status symbol to so many.It is also a huge waste of money to so many others.No college does not mean your more better or more qualified than someone straight out of highschool and into the workforce.Even long before our economic disaster college was no guarantee for even the best of students.But hell if you got a trust fund or are fortunate to have someone else pay for it , then I guess you will probably not even care about any of this.I ain't no fortunate son.

Re: “I Had No Friends

I actually chose my college roommate. The same one, twice. No dorms. We had taken Home Ec in high school together. I figured we were compatible because of this class. We at least had the same conception of how to negotiate living on ones own; rent, bills, balancing a check book, sewing a pillow, etc. I knew something was up the first time we went grocery shopping he loaded up on microwave tv dinners. What about the stuff we cooked in Home Ec? We got skills, man!
The clincher was the second year when the novelty of him watching sports all day, sitting on the couch, filling up an empty gallon cider jug with his chew spit wore out. "How come we never hang out anymore?" he asked, as I was on my way out with my friends I was drinking coffee, smoking pot and watching movies with.
I guess mass quantities of tobacco isn't for for me either, Lindy.

Re: “I Regret Not Regretting Not Going to College

@Warped Genius That's the problem with (especially liberal arts) college graduates. They say things like "you even get to" when referring to people that opted-out of college. As though having a piece of paper means they're automatically more qualified for a job than us. While you can learn a hell of a lot in college, you can also learn a hell of a lot more by an extra 4 years in the workforce.

So don't be condescending just because someone mentions they didn't get a degree. It's just school- one way to spend 4 years of your life. Not an automatic job qualification.

Don't fucking grow dreadlocks.--especially if you're white. And since you're reading the PM, you probably are.

Re: “How to Do Drugs (A Back-to-School Primer)

I was about to call bullshit on your "Don't get high until after class" rule (I can't remember not being stoned at any time while earning my degree) until I noticed disclaimer number 3. Indisputable fact indeed.

hey Mo cant see past reading an artical that is just a humor posting. your a bit full of hate...and anger. If you dont like living with a bunch of lefties that make up the majority of Portlanders.....perhaps you should move to Texas. lol If you think that Portland will ever reflect.... the more and more less relevent conservitive would be the backwards one.

Re: “Your Portland Musical Nourishment Pyramid

Yeah, yeah, other music exists... but my iTunes is at least 1/4 Dandy Warhols. The more I listen, the more I like it.
