Grad school + networking, luck, working for a public agency.
That is a great picture! I noticed today on my daily commute past this fountain that a brand new sign was installed by Portland Parks and Rec in front...mentioning that there is to be "no wading" etc. Wonder if there's a connection? Anyway, looks like it was a fun ride, I would have waded if I were them!
1) Captain Eyeliner, using that from now on :-)
2) Agreed that the "surprise" ending of Whidmore on the sub was lame-tacular. I mean, pretty much anyone who has been watching this show for a while would have guessed that was coming, right? I've been expecting his return for a while. Now--whose side will he be on, Smocke's or Jacob's? It seems like he would be the person Jacob was expecting...?
3) Speaking of sides, what do people think about it being faith (Jacob) vs. free will (Smocke) instead of just good vs evil? To me, good vs. evil is too simple for this show, which always makes us see the good and bad in everyone, and tends to blur the lines between good and evil.
4) Seems like Miles mentioned the diamonds in one scene, and then decided to go all grave robber and dig them up right after. Kinda weird, but I guess who cares.
5) ROM, I like your theory about "Jacob told Richard that he had a plan, man, and that someday he'd tell Richard what it was. Well, that's like a metaphor for the entire show!" Very apt. But that would be really annoying if it turned out to be their version of an ending.
Wow, the fact that a person's butt could look like that blows me away. It's like an animated, video game butt.
I am not a vegan, but still get perturbed when people automatically assume that if a dish is vegan it is somehow less tasty. This is just not true! I suppose I just have vegan sympathies, and dislike people ignoring the truth. But I still can't quite give up on cheese...
I think the hostility can come from carnivores feeling threatened, that someone's vegan-ness is somehow a judgment on their carnivorous-ness. Which is sometimes the case, but certainly not always. This preconceived notion breeds hostility. But perhaps there would be less hostility if we all learned a little more about the other side. Carnivores should sample the scrumptious vegan cuisine that is out there and see just how delicious it can be. Just a thought.
Yes, my boyfriend a similar sign at our local liquor store, 11th and Hawthorne.
I agree with Amy in terms of prioritizing freight crossing without encouraging more car commuting and sprawl. What needs to happen here is some real thinking OUTSIDE THE BOX. It seems the task force is stuck in one mindset with one equation: traffic bottleneck equals widening the crossing, when there are so many other ways to tackle this problem. We really need to walk the walk here in "green" Portland--and if we're aimed at significantly reducing GG emissions, building more roads for more cars to drive on is NOT the answer.
