Re: “You Get a Tim Ticket

Meh, at vs. in isn't a perfect and precise distinction, but if a family member asks me "where'd you leave the vacuum?" I'm going to say "in the bedroom" not "at the bedroom".

On the other hand, if I get asked "where'd you leave the folding chairs?" I'm going more likely say "at Jason's house" than "in Jason's house".

If I can take another tangent... ever notice how we say "in September" "on Tuesday" "at 3:15"? Why?? That's gotta be annoying for people learning English.

Re: “You Get a Tim Ticket

If the pedestrian is waiting on the sidewalk, the driver has the right of way (unless some traffic signal tells you otherwise). Vehicular traffic doesn't have to stop until the pedestrian steps off the sidewalk and into the crosswalk:

http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/811.028
(4) For the purposes of this section, a pedestrian is crossing the roadway in a crosswalk when any part or extension of the pedestrian, including but not limited to any part of the pedestrians body, wheelchair, cane, crutch or bicycle, MOVES ONTO THE ROADWAY in a crosswalk with the intent to proceed.

If I want to cross the street, I'll wait until there's a break in traffic I'm comfortable with, then go for it. There's no need for you to get angry or pouty because I won't cross in front of you while traffic is still whizzing by in the other lanes. You have the right of way - take it!

Re: “Is that Organic Sprite You're Drinking?

Raising fruits and vegetables, then abandoning them to rot on the vine is such a sin. My grandma would tan your hide.

Re: “Trojan War!

I've always heard that Trojan wasn't as good as the other brands too, but my experience of non-latex condoms (I'm allergic; latex = poison ivy) is one box of Durex: 2 out of 6 broke, and quite a few boxes of Trojans, none of which broke. Mr. Lucky was average-sized and our love-making was very vanilla, so I don't think the issue was user-specific.

For non-latex condoms, my unscientific study recommends Trojan. And the morning-after pill.

I always thought those were for box cutters?

Re: “Chivalry Isn't Dead - It's Obnoxious

Wow, have none of the other commenters ever witnessed what the IA was talking about, and how it's different from polite door holding? Holding the door open when the person is half a block away is not polite, and neither is standing in the doorway so that I'm forced to rub up against you in order to get in the building. I've worked in an office before where a few old men were regulars at this. They didn't do it to men, or to older women, but they did enjoy making the younger women rub against their bellies and then be forced by the rules of polite society to thank them for it.

Try a Google image search of passive-aggressive door holding to get an idea, in case you've never noticed it before.

Re: “I Am so Fucking Sick of the Homeless

Actually, PSU is a pretty good place to be when The Big One hits. The old buildings have been seismically reinforced, it's not a liquefaction zone, not a landslide zone, etc. per this map: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/pbem/article…

UP and OHSU, however... good luck to them!
