I'm a PDXer, and super proud of the bridge, but our bridge is only crossing a river. Wouldn't a bridge like this from West Seattle to downtown just be way bigger of an engineering challenge? Or has this sort of thing already been studied?

Folks, we don't know for sure that she is a crazy anti-vaxxer. Sometimes people are unlucky and their vaccination fails. For example, check out this Slate article about a NYC outbreak: http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and…

Could be she was just unlucky and was around some anti-vax douche. Or she's immunocompromised, as mentioned above.

Of course, if she did deliberately forego vaccination and went around possibly knowing she was contagious, fuck her? Sure.

So annoyed that someone beat me to posting that horrible, horrible chef ad.

My partner switched and I love them:

a) He's not inhaling ash and other nasty combustion products, so it's quite likely much better for his lungs;

b) He can take as much of a "hit" of nicotine as he wants and just put it away, so he doesn't have to smoke an entire cigarette just because he lit it and doesn't want to "waste" it;

c) He's gradually reduced the amount of nicotine in the gel shit that he buys for it, so there's less of that, too;

c) He no longer smells like shit when he comes to bed at night after having a smoke.

Yes, yes, all of this would be true if he didn't smoke at all, but this was unlikely to happen soon and going to be a much harder problem to solve. As it is now, he has a largely unoffensive habit that is (I sincerely hope) much healthier than his old habit.

I'm a huge fan of the things.

Anyone but Phi-Phi. She's that awful combination of thin-skinned, mean, and egotistical but without the intelligence to at least be a good Mean Girl. I'd be happier seeing them bring back Madame LaQueer before I see Phi-Phi win.

FWIW, I've had excellent experiences with Oregon Humane Society and Cat Adoption Team in PDX. Both seemed careful, but entirely reasonable, when checking me and my partner out.

It may not be Homo for the Holidays, but we did a pretty great GaGa for the Holidays set at the Portland Gay Men's Chorus show two weeks ago.

Nov 8, 2011 boyasunder commented on SL Letter of the Day: Hot Asian Topping.
The real racism here is that Dan had a chance to demand (and possibly share?) a pic of a "smokin' hot" guy and dropped the opportunity. Why do you hate Asian dudes, Dan?
