Two of the top 5 hottest summers on record happened in the 5 years since I moved here: I’m very sorry, Portland.

It was damn hot while I was there this summer. But I grew up in portland and I remember it getting quite hot. - Todd Hoff
My experience is limited, but this summer was something else: lots of week-long stretches of low-to-mid 90 degree days. It reminded me of the stuff we'd get when I was living in New York: Portland even had a number of thunderstorms this year. In the other years that I've been here, there'd be 2 or 3 100+ days, but heat waves would only be 2-3 days long and there'd only be 3 or 4 in the season. - Mark Trapp

Rule 35: if it exists, people will be pretentious and pedantic about it and ultimately ruin your enjoyment of it.
"fandom" - Pete : Team Marina
This is about tractor square dancing, isn't it? ;) - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
Ya know, I used enjoy rule 35. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

Don't read the comments... don't read the comments... don't read the comments...
good practice - MoTO: Team Marina
There are exceptions (Whatever, for example), but the rule works 99% of the time. - Walt Crawford
It's so hard to not - Eric - Poppa Large
Comments are like the dust that collects under the fridge. Sometimes you know how bad it's going to be anyhow, but you look and feel worse about it. Just remember, if you do look, nothings actually changed. - Heather

A mustache, 50s horn-rims, a plaid shirt, AND an octopus tattoo? Really, Portland Timbers fan?

Heh - Bren from iPhone
Ugh. That is what always discourages me from moving back to PDX. I'd be rolling my eyes so much I'm afraid they'd end up permanently lodged in my eyebrows. - vicster: full-bodied
I hear that. You know the Fox Sports director was DESPERATELY taking crowd shots to get someone like that, too. - Zamms
Probably couldn't swing a dad cat without hitting... Wait, is that now not PC in Portland? - Joe
I'm afraid "my Portland" died along with Satyricon. :-( - vicster: full-bodied
True fact: I had a friend take an apartment in Portland just because it was across the street from where they shot the exteriors for Drugstore Cowboy. - Zamms
There are folks here in Sacramento who aspire to have our city be just like Portland. Um, no. - Corinne L
Everyone knows Boise is the new Portland. - Zamms
Swear to god, my sister went on an OKCupid date with this guy. - Meg VMeg
Ooo, does he own any goggles? - Zamms

There was a fake French faux-metal band busking outside my work as I left. Then, on the subway, the woman across from me proceeded to shuck 5 ears of corn. I don't think I can live anywhere else.

Love the Geico commercial where Kenny Rogers sings The Gambler.
I always want to sing it to people at extremely relevant (yet always inappropriate) times. - Meg VMeg
there are too many opportunities to sing that in academia. it's almost criminal. - jambina
Saw this for the first time recently. LOLed. :) - LB: Unable to Can from Android
You just know that Kenny has done that in real life... several times. - Julian
I couldn't recognize him except for the voice - Victor Ganata from iPhone
A friend of mine won a Kenny Rogers lookalike contest several years ago. He looked more like Kenny than Kenny did! - LB: Unable to Can from Android

The Awful Reign of the Red Delicious - The Atlantic -
The Awful Reign of the Red Delicious - The Atlantic
"For at least 70 years, the Red Delicious has dominated apple production in the United States. But since the turn of the 21st century, as the market has filled with competitors—the Gala, the Fuji, the Honeycrisp—its lead has been narrowing. Annual output has plunged. And even still, a gap is growing between supply and demand from American consumers. Earlier this month, Todd Fryhover, the president of the Washington Apple Commission—whose growers produce the majority of apples in the United States—recommended that this harvest, up to two-thirds of the state’s Red Delicious yield be exported." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
I'm not surprised - I only ever see them in the big supermarkets, and they're nowhere near as prevalent there as other varieties. - Jennifer Dittrich
I feel like I'm the only one who likes them for baking. Other reds seem to get too mushy or don't hold as much sweetness. - Anika
A number of years ago, I had the sweetest, most delicious apple I've ever had, and it was a Red Delicious. I've tried them time and again, and none of them reach that level of quality. - Glen Campbell
Glen, I've had a few like that, it just seems so hit or miss - where with some other varieties, like Pink Lady, I tend to have more consistent luck. - Jennifer Dittrich
I think I've only had one Red Delicious that I've liked. The rest have been bland or mealy. - John (bird whisperer)
I'm with Glen -- sometimes the very best apple available is red delicious, because when they're good, they're exceptionally good. Sadly, most of them are bland or mealy as John says. Lately I have been hooked on the mutsu variety one of the farmer market's vendors sells. - Stephen Mack
Red Delicious is mis-named - it's NOT delicious! Now Honeycrisp, THOSE are delicious! But crazy expensive too. - Ken Gidley
Advice: eat the toast first.
now who's posting likebait? :D - holly #ravingfangirl

OH: hold on, let me text you a taco.

Grandpa was a Texaco man.

I'm going to increasingly and unceasingly split infinitives until they are all conquered.
I just ask for separate infinitives. - Mark Trapp

Chris Berman announcing a game is like watching with my dad. He's usually a few minutes behind, misses half the play, and asks why they are doing "x" every thirty seconds. I am waiting for the rant against the officials and Berman to fall asleep half way through the third quarter.
