QuoteA 19-year-old man told investigators he caused a three-car crash when he fainted while holding his breath as he drove through a tunnel northwest of Portland, Oregon State Police said.

State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings said Monday he's not sure why Calhon was holding his breath, but some people hold their breaths in tunnels as part of a game or superstition.

The tunnel, called the Dennis L. Edwards Tunnel, was completed in 1940 and carries the highway through the Northern Oregon Coast Range mountains. It's 772 feet long, meaning that a car traveling at the posted speed limit of 55 mph would get through it in about 10 seconds.

Hastings told The Oregonian newspaper investigators do not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.

"It is odd," he said.

:horrormirth:

I am particularly fond of that tunnel, as it's the one we always went through on the way to Oswald West for summer camping.

A bear running around an inner city neighborhood isn't that surprising...What is surprising is that it's in a neighborhood a good three miles from The Eagle:

I keep telling my kids. They don't believe me, but now I have proof.

I have it on good authority that there is a bar named "The Eagle" is almost every major city.

I also have it on good authority that you shouldn't go in unless you're willing to have a Saturday Night-level experience.

It's true. It's a thing. The Portland Eagle is a surprisingly sedate iteration, though. Well,  this is partly because the owner of the original Eagle, downtown in Vaseline Alley, let his business name registration expire and this guy in Nopo ninja-registered it out from under him, creating bad blood that will last decades.

Incidentally, Roger: Next time you're in town, we're going to The Eagle.  It's kind of awesome.

Yeah, that was the information I was given, too. I was in there once. It was...ummm...rough.

Was the word "literally" really necessary in that headline? Like Humpty would have a figurative fall instead?

A fall from grace, a fall from glory? A falling out with his already emotionally distant father, or perhaps a childhood best friend who has gotten really into their newfound religion? A fall into a decadent and debased lifestyle, brought on by a perceived lack of responsibility and purpose in his life?
