Too bad it's Oregon...
2002-02-16 05:56:34 PM  
Portland sucks because it's in Oregon, although it sucks less than the rest of Oregon (especially Medford)
2002-02-16 05:57:01 PM  
I wonder why.......

Nice Banner, Queer Window. GO BACK! AHHHH.

In 2001, 75 percent of unmarried women had had sex. In 1963, 75 percent of unmarried women were virgins.

Clearly the times are changing. Is that such a bad thing?
2002-02-16 05:58:30 PM  

...she sits AROUND the house."

Oh, different kind of large...

2002-02-16 05:58:56 PM  
Stumptown? All I can think of is a town full of amputees. And tattooed midgets.

Yep, her mouth looks just big enough.

why don't they just marry each other?

2002-02-16 05:59:25 PM  
Hmmm. One should ask if a greater concentration of singles might be due to a greater concentration of neurotic self-obsessed losers.
2002-02-16 06:00:26 PM  
It didn't take long to learn that if you stick your butt out a little and grind into a guy's thigh--subtly, of course--as he passes by, he's going to stop. We made the night of a group of boys, who looked like they were Lake Oswego High School seniors, as they danced in a circle. We promptly freaked our way inside and sandwiched one precious peach. After we left, we could hear the screams of the excited young ones across the dance floor, as the peach turned into a beet.

Mommy, I'm scared. Hold me!

So, if you're looking to dance dirty or have a one-night stand, get your ass in line on Northwest 2nd Avenue. It definitely felt good to fulfill the Banana Ho that I know is in all of us.

Speak for yourself, biatch.

Come one I was First, its not the 17th here in the good 'ol USA
2002-02-16 06:07:11 PM  
Portland kicks ass, but goddamn are people here ugly. Not as bad as some places, I guess, but still -- there's a reason people are single. Oh, and the nightlife sucks.
2002-02-16 06:11:39 PM  
I have a random fish.
2002-02-16 06:20:33 PM  

Ripped off...Single men are paid as much as 40 percent less than married men

Shiat, that ain't news.

The rest of the article is pathetic ramblings of self-important club trash. Color me umimpressed.
2002-02-16 06:21:20 PM  
Welcome to Portland, where even the ugly women have attitudes!
2002-02-16 06:26:03 PM  
Couldn't have anything to do with the concentration of brew-pubs, now could it?

(Oh, and Zzeuss, they got their causality backwards: men who are paid 40% less than everyone else aren't marriage material.)
2002-02-16 06:27:59 PM  
You all should come to the midwest.
Hot farm girls everywhere.
2002-02-16 06:28:54 PM  
I love people in Oregon, but the dating scene there was nil. Lots of tatoos, lots of smoking, lots of people with that I'm-an-atheist-but-look-at-my-power-crystal philosophy there. The nightlife was pretty happening (compared to Houston and Austin) but still not much to write home about. And a good percentage of these people who are "singles" are probably singles in the same sense that a lot of San Franciscans are "singles." Yep, their gay.
2002-02-16 06:30:17 PM  
woo hoo! my Boobiesed link. it figures this comes out 5 years after i moved from portland to a little town on the oregon coast. i hope my fellow farkers/farkettes have a good laugh like i did. is there any contact info for this portland fark party yet? the seattle fark yahoo group is a great idea. there has to be a way we can exploit the yahoo groups to help drew and his bandwidth load/cost.
2002-02-16 06:31:53 PM  
my Boobiesed link.
2002-02-16 06:32:55 PM  
what is up with the filter?



2002-02-16 06:33:39 PM  
i give up
2002-02-16 06:34:12 PM  
Oh, come on. We are not ALL ugly fat hippie losers. At least most of us aren't sun-dried,empty-headed fashion victims like that state below us, where the term "self-obsessed" probably originated. Speaking of which, more Californians move to Oregon than any other state.
Look at it this way, it's a polyamorist's paradise.
The night life only sucks if you don't know where to go.
2002-02-16 06:40:36 PM  
Yep, Portland has some uglies (both sexes), but if you want to find the ugliest womens, you need to head to San Jose.

No kidding.

But Oregonians do have a self-esteem problem, as Shadowman demonstrates. Berkeley was Berkeley before anyone knew what Oregon was, granola biter!
2002-02-16 06:43:16 PM  
i lived in portland where i owned a restaurant named, .... Tio Loco's (imagine that!. I found the women to be good looking.
the weather is much better in my hometown (san diego) and the women, well, they're MORE good-looking.

they can keep the rain.
2002-02-16 06:43:35 PM  

Reasons I left Oregon for Louisiana:

Women care what they look like here.More than 3 months of sunlight per year.Less Liberals.More laid back (without smokin' rope)."I prefer the company of peasants -- they haven't been educated enough to reason incorrectly."
2002-02-16 06:45:20 PM  

the californians that move to Oregon move there cause, and i quote, "it's nice where not everyone is beautiful" that to me means "everyone is ugly" hehehehe
2002-02-16 06:54:20 PM  
Pjd1965 there were jackasses that would just type "my Boobies" all the time. Is that what you tried typing ??? (without the periods).... there for, its filtered

(kinda like that Finger dickwad, that seems to have himself a random fish now)

I wonder where Vegas is on that list. They'd have to do a single/not-a-coont poll though here.
2002-02-16 06:58:52 PM  
tioloco --

plus the northwest mexican food scene isn't exactly fantastic... the best mexican food in the world is in san diego.
2002-02-16 07:03:24 PM  
not a coont?

i did not know it was on the filter list, or i would not have mentioned it. i am just so happy not to have a o on my profile anymore :-)
2002-02-16 07:07:46 PM  
*Where lesbians unpack their U-Hauls...

That about sums it up, so don't get too excited guys.
2002-02-16 07:08:05 PM  
sry... coont is fitlered too, "single/not-a-c|_|nt"
2002-02-16 07:15:50 PM  
most of the mexican restaurants around here are run by Latin Americans and not some corporation like chi chi's. i will not argue there are more/better places down south (being closer to the border might have something to do with it). All of the family run places I frequent have american mexican food yes, but it is pretty damm yummy! Are you trying to say your own place was serving sub standard fare? Or did the locals not appreciate your authentic cuisine and needed something a little more gringo like?
2002-02-16 07:58:22 PM  
Single men are paid as much as 40 percent less than married men.

is this because it is easy to get married if you make 40% more?
2002-02-16 08:05:56 PM  
Eh, I don't care if you insult my town or continue to think Oregon sucks. The less people that move here or visit here, the better.
In the spirit of territory-trashing, some things you will never hear a southerner say:
"I'll take Shakespeare for 1000, Alex"
Duct tape won't fix that.
Come to think of it, I'll have a Heineken.
We don't keep firearms in this house.
Has anybody seen the sideburns trimmer?
You can't feed that to the dog.
I thought Graceland was tacky.
No kids in the back of the pick-up truck, it's not safe.
Wrasslin's fake.
Honey, did you mail that donation to Greenpeace?
Do you think my hair is too big?
I'll have grapefruit instead of biscuits and gravy.
Honey, do these bonsai trees need watering?
Give me the small bag of pork rinds.
Deer heads detract from the decor.
Spitting is such a nasty habit.
I just couldn't find a thing at Wal-Mart today.
Trim the fat off that steak.
The tires on that truck are too big.
I'll have the arugula and ridicchio salad.
Would you like your fish poached or broiled?
My fiancee, Paula Jo, is registered at Tiffany's.
Little Debbie snack cakes have too many fat grams.
She's too old to be wearing a bikini.
Hey, here's an episode of "Hee Haw" that we haven't seen.
I don't have a favorite college team.
Be sure to bring my salad dressing on the side.
I believe you cooked those green beans too long.
Those shorts ought to be a little longer, Darla.
But hey, at least you are not afraid when someone wants to "ax you something", and "Nawlins" is very cool.
We DO have some dumb laws in Oregon:
Dishes must drip dry.
The "Peer Review Statute" prohibits you from finding out details of any written or oral discussion about your medical treatment. Not even a court of law can. All you can access is what the doctor or nurse voluntarily records in your chart.
It is illegal to buy or sell marijuana, but it is legal to smoke it on your own property.
Ice cream may not be eaten on Sundays.
You may not pump your own gas in service stations.
One may not bathe without wearing "suitable clothing," i.e.,that which covers one's body from neck to knee.
Canned corn is not to be used as bait for fishing.
People may not whistle underwater.
You cannot wear roller skates in restrooms.
Farkers can be just plain mean-spirited, but I actually find that endearing.Gotta sulk off and nurse my wounded self-esteem.
2002-02-16 08:23:34 PM  
I love hearing all you motherfarkers complain about Portland.. then you'll never come here. STAY AWAY, MIDWESTERNERS AND CALIFORNICATORS. What do you expect from Willamette Week, anyway? It's a trashy pseudo-leftist rag. They could have picked much better bars. Surprised they didn't go to farking Twist and hit on 14-year olds. Please, you Farkers, keep hating Oregon.. forever..
2002-02-16 08:25:49 PM  
Other western states are just jealous.We don't have the smog,tackiness,and attitude of California,and we are not in a doldrums zone like Washington,one of the most depressing states I've ever seen.And Seattle is a town with a horrible traffic system.
2002-02-16 08:37:10 PM  
An abundance of single people suggests really ugly and/or dysfunction people. Sorry BCG.
2002-02-16 09:00:26 PM  
There ya go, Kthulhu. I agree about Seattle, of all the cities I've ever been to, it is the most depressing,and those one way streets are damn frustrating. I like Portland because it is peaceful and has a relatively low crime rate.
2002-02-16 10:05:37 PM  
Yeah, Seattle is depressing, but it's better than Medford, where I used to live.

To everyone who likes Oregon, I dare you to spend a year in the Rogue Valley.
2002-02-16 10:54:45 PM  
Portland's fun, if you know how to find the right places... That requires a knowledge of driving, which seems to be wasted on people in the mid-west, excepting Californians (who drive somewhat safely, but with the apprehensiveness of panicked men running from apolcalypse). The less-known clubs and bars there actually surpass the popular ones, by being an actual "experience," rather than elbowing your way through a bunch of hippy freaks to get a beer. On the other hand, I can't help but agree that we seem to have a ridiculously large concentration of lesbian/gay people roaming the streets. Try "The Roxy" sometime. If you don't mind being hit on by people of your own gender, it's a cool place, replete with a life-size Crucifix on the wall, right next to a sequined portrait of Quentin Tarantino. AND you can still smoke there, despite the new bullshiat laws... Yeah!
2002-02-16 10:55:57 PM  
This article makes me more happy than I usually am to be married. And I'm usually pretty happy about it.
2002-02-16 11:01:31 PM  
I wonder if my aunt & uncle in Maupin make it to any of those places...
2002-02-16 11:04:10 PM  

Midwesterners know how to drive. It's Portland that's all in love with light rail and no-growth BS.
2002-02-16 11:08:26 PM  
Kukuman: I lived there for 4 years (yay high school) after moving from San Jose.. It doesn't have the nickname "Deadford" for nothing.
2002-02-16 11:46:25 PM  
I Have A Computer! I have a random fishia

that new "before second poast" filter rocks :)
2002-02-16 11:50:58 PM  
Kukuman: Do you sarcastically mean live in Rogue Valley *beer* to wile away the local excitement?

Hmmm ... clubs in Portland: How 'bout Starz or the Acropolis?
2002-02-17 12:25:49 AM  
And no-growth is BS...WHY??
2002-02-17 12:31:00 AM  
Ranulf: Yeah, that and "Methford".

Kanamit:There is a Rogue Valley beer? Heh, I didn't know that existed. But anyway, no, that's not what I meant, I meant the actual geographical area.
2002-02-17 01:02:22 AM  
Millay - There's a reason Portlanders use the light rail, and that's because it has a tendency to plow through the arseholes who stop their cars to take bonghits on the tracks. It's great fun! But seriously, most of the people in Oregon and Washington, at least, are farking TERRIBLE drivers. I've personally never been in an accident while I was driving, but I've been in and seen so many morons doing stupid things in their cars that it astounds me to think they found their licenses anywhere other than their posterior orifices. Plus nobody in Portland seems to be able to give directions. <=
