Re: “Don't Try This at Home

WOW
WOW
WOW
I am laughing SO hard. As a recent newcomer to dabbing, a couple weeks ago I took like 2 back to back and was asleep in 2 hrs and slept for what felt like an eternity.

Re: “The Great Vape-Off

Hey Justus! I couldn't agree more, and I actually did a review on it in this issue - http://www.portlandmercury.com/portland/most-bestest-shit/Content?oid=15388760

One correction - Firefly is actually based in the Bay Area. Thanks for reading!

Re: “Fresh Air

Just make solvent-less rosin if you're worried about contaminants.

Re: “Bang a Bong

Beautiful glass, but after only a few uses cleaning becomes necessary, and all the salt & rubbing alcohol in the world won't dissolve residue from some of the bendy twists and turns. I'd rather spend all that cash on cannabis.

Re: “The High Life

Wait, isn't every issue of the Mercury the cannabis issue?

Re: “Pizza Overload!

Hot Lips pepperoni with chipotle sauce. Get it by the slice for that extra heat in the oven to crisp up the crust a bit. 3 pepperoncini on the side. This is my pizza perfection.

Re: “Pie Town

"Pieology is like the Italian bastard of Chipotle and Subway." So true. Also spot on about the truffle oil (won't someone please make this stop) and the Everything Bagel Pizza (bagel pizza is not a thing to aspire to, folks).

Re: “Pizza Overload!

As a New Yorker, I can confidently say that I am So. Fscking. Tired. of NYers acting like we have some inborn authority about what constitutes good pizza. No. Most of the pizza in NY is crap. Greasy, underbaked, sloppy crap. OK, maybe we don't have a Pizza Hut on every block, but Papa John's thrives in NY. That one fact all by itself is enough to discredit NY's taste in pizza.

Also, Blackbird is OK (and very inconsistent), but if you want to try and approximate the NY slice, Lonesome's is far closer. They even sell it to you through a hole in the door, complete with all the faux NY attitude you can stand.

Re: “Pie Town

Pizza crust and bread just don't come out well on the west coast. When it comes to Portland, you can get better pizza in Korea.

Re: “Pizza Overload!

Re: “Pizza Overload!

As a New Yorker, I can can confidently say that Blackbird on 20th and Hawthorne is by far the best pizza in Portland.

I'm talking about regular pizza by the slice, not fancy Pizza like Apizza Scholls, etc, which is basically a different food entirely.

Also, there's only one criteria by which a "regular" pizza place should be judged: The Plain Cheese Slice.

Toppings are great, don't get me wrong, but they aren't what makes great pizza. Great pizza is made by dough, sauce, and cheese.

Re: “Pizza Overload!

Yeah, remember living in NE about ten years ago when you couldn't get delivery ANYTHING because too many drivers had gotten robbed in the 80s / 90s?

*crickets*

Guess that was before your time...

Re: “Raccoons: Nature's Monsters

No, there were no raccoons, or squirrels in Portland until after 1972, when coincidentally, we first experienced freezing rain and silver thaw. There were, however, squirrels on the grounds of the State Capital in Salem, prior to then. Coyotes are even more recent, not to mention the cougars and even the occasional bear, nowadays.


Revelation 6:8 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/revelation/6-8.html/

8 And I looked , and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Re: “Raccoons: Nature's Monsters

Those animals all existed on that lush green LAND before it became your city! Your ignorance and hatred is outstanding! God forbid your city slicker butt coexist with nature! I grew up in the country on a farm. Then people like you moved in. First the bears and coyotes were "removed" (killed). Then the raccoons, deer, and turkeys. Lastly the hawks and falcons were shot by ignorant asses protecting their precious inbred little yappers. The best part was people like you made a city in the country, and the smell of farm animals was offensive and our horses, chickens, livestock and rabbits had to go. Thanks. Humans are the monsters. Ignorant humans like you!

Re: “Raccoons: Nature's Monsters

Cage match: full grown intact 40 pound male raccoon vs. Pitbull. Who wins?

I think the fast twitch wild animal craziness of the coon would inflict beau coo damage but the pit would keep coming and eventually get the coon by the throat. Game over.
