High Weirdness / Re: The Dyatlov Pass Incident
« on: February 16, 2015, 08:41:11 am »
This has been my favorite "unexplained weird shit" thing for years now.

I love it when I 100% know who one of these is in response to.

This time, I might even know 2. :lulz:

I don't care what anyone says.

I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual.

And then I realized that I read your post COMPLETELY backwards. :lol:

Reading comprehension is my friend, I swear.

It's almost impossible to get Chinese food with MSG in Portland.

It's also almost impossible to get good Chinese food in Portland.


Yes, actually. MSG is found in all sorts of foods naturally. Using it as an additive is just another way of intensifying the flavor of a dish. And AFAIK absolutely zero evidence has been found to support the claims that people make about MSG being bad for you. In fact, every study I've ever heard of on the matter has shown that MSG-related symptoms are completely unreproduceable in a controlled experiment. Basically, the idea that MSG causes side effects is almost certainly hogwash and the idea that adding MSG means the food is crap is, itself, crap.

Is it?

Or is that just what you want us to believe?

I don't think the Johnson Creek Strangler was ever caught.

Just sayin'.

Notice how she never actually specifies which river.

I wish my sedentary male friends had such a positive attitude about that.

23 Kevin

Pfft. I'm a 33 Kevin.

No, seriously, I'm 33 and my real name is Kevin.

You might want to be careful about giving RWHN your real name, he might report you to the authorities for being a menace to the children.

Also, fuck you guys' revisionist history.

RWHN was never that cool. I met him back when he hadn't been on the board that long and he was a weirdly breathy and pallid little shitburger even back then.

You could do the "PORTLAND TO PORTLAND" tour, Oregon to Maine (with a few side trips).

I don't ever want to go to Portland, Maine.  I picture it as the inverse Portland, where there isn't even any proper doom, just endless amounts of crappy beer and crappy people and nothing ever goes right and I don't LIKE anyone and there's RWHN all over my shoes, screaming about "protecting our assets and it's like the Reagan years NEVER ENDED.

Actually, Portland Maine is at least twice as awesome as Portland Oregon. Unfortunately, it's completely surrounded by Maine.

This thread contains some difficult but essential truths, not just about dead people but about Nigel and the potential side-effects of Nigel.

And it can be worse than being dead, you know. At least the dead know the score.

I've drank with Nigel on several occasions and lived to tell the tale, and here I am now, just waiting my WHOLE ENTIRE REST OF MY LIFE for the other shoe to drop.

I don't know why, but this piece made me remember that there is a terrible Facebook group called "Dead Memories Portland", in which, as far as I can tell, dead people fawn over their recollections of the way things were when they were alive. They speak with cloying adoration about The Good Old Days, back when Portland Was Great.

Those days never happened. With the exception of 2006-2006, Portland has never been as good as it is now; it's never had more housing, more jobs, less violence, better food, less pollution, or more fun things to do and see. You can even swim in the river now, and most of the Superfund sites are at least appropriately fenced off with barbed wire. Yet they describe with aching longing the absolute shitholes they remember from wayback when they could still taste, places that were never good and would be shut down by the health department if  they were open now, like Poor Richards (2 godawful greasy sandwiches for the price of 1) and Quality Pie (the name is a lie. A dirty, dirty lie). They reminisce about the rat-infested drug fronts and the porn theaters, god what a terrible shame that earthquake hazard was torn down, remember getting molested out back of the gas station across the street one or two or six times, back in the Seventies? Back in the Good Old Days.

I like how you slipped that in there all casual-like, but goddamn that's a dirty trick to play on people. :lulz:

Or that little strip down by the river where the addresses start with 0.

Good luck getting your GPS to recognize THAT as a legitimate address.
