Re: “Please Explain Why One Would Waste A Week of Their Life For This Sneaker

It looks like a unicorn turd. Would anyone wait in line for a week to buy a unicorn turd?

Yes they would.

Re: “Mayor Sam Adams' Occupy Twitter Rampage

I hope #OPDX keeps up the protests, but I don't think an actual tent city is needed at this point. It just gives the police an excuse to try to shut down the protests altogether.

Most of the critics of the occupations in general were able to try to discredit the movement over the problems that cropped up in the overnight camps. (Drugs, sanitation and so on.)

If those issues are not present, then they will have to attack the ideas. This is far more difficult for the critics and puts them in a position they don't want to be in.

Re: “SL Letter of the Day: Fear Ol' Dad

@Dave J.

I wouldn't be so quick to call BS here.

I've helped out with my great grandparents, my grandmother, my step-father in law's mom, and my own father. In my great grandparent's house and also at my grandmother's house there was old mail and newspapers shoved practically everywhere. Their houses looked like they belonged to hoarders. I was able to talk them into letting me clean up once a season. This was usually a week long undertaking. I had to get behind & underneath everything to get at stacks of belongings. I went through their cupboards to remove outdated food.

I wasn't trying to snoop. I just wanted to help out. And yes, I found things that were personal, but I just placed them back after dusting the bookcase they were sitting on.

When my dad went blind in the year before he died I ended up having to go digging in the garage to find a hammer or something. My dad's garage had cupboards, drawers, lockers & tool chests everywhere. The guy had nearly every tool known to man. Looking for that tool uncovered every flavor of porn stashed in just about every corner I looked. The garage was filled. I wasn't trying to snoop. God knows I don't want to know what my dad was into, but there it was. Didn't say anything about it and just tossed it out when my mom wasn't looking after he died.

I know my mom has some things of her own that I'm probably going to have to throw out when she dies before her sisters or somebody starts packing things up for charity.

I'm sure everybody has *something* embarrassing stashed away. Under the couch is probably not the best place for it though.

Re: “Two Dick Moves from Amazon

I have a bar code scanner app that I use quite a bit during the holiday shopping season when prices are dramatically different everywhere online *and* in various brick & mortar stores.

Let's say I'm at Toys R Us and I scan a lego set that retails for $89. My app brings up that it's going for $50 at Target across the parking lot and $60+ shipping online from Amazon.

What is the problem if I save $39 by walking across the parking lot for the item? There are other items I want at Toys R Us that are great prices and I buy those items there. If I'm already buying from a Big Box Store, does it matter which one?

Re: “BREAKING: Anti-Gay Megachurch Moving to SE Portland

Yuck.
I *was* looking to buy a house in that area. No way in hell I'd want to live there now.

Re: “Porn: Pro & Con

Designer vagina demand would go down if our teens/young adults were told not to expect porn to equal reality.

IRL, the penis isn't typically a mile long. IRL, boobs range from fun-size to more-than-a-handful. IRL, plumbers, cable guys, & pizza men don't get fucked at every house they arrive at. IRL, condoms are important. IRL, lube is more useful than spit. IRL, most anuses aren't bleached.

Porn doesn't equal reality anymore than action flicks, horror movies, or musicals do.

Re: “Off-Duty PDX Police Captain Wields Pistol in Idaho Road Rage Incident

I'm starting to think we need to require our police officers to participate in x hours of mediation and yoga per week. If that doesn't calm them the fuck down, interpretative dance. Yes, in a leotard. Viewable by the public on YouTube. Rather my tax dollars pay for *that* rather than the legal & PR nightmare we have to foot the bill for now.
