Wayne 985: CheekyMonkey: Best part of the article is the Weeners. Amandameezer is the epitome of hipster asshole, whining about how cool Portland USED to be, before all the posers moved in, and how much it sucks now.I caught that and laughed. The dude's comment in the article about the number of mustaches is true though.My own problem with Portland is the level of harassment you get from homeless people. Oregon has the highest rate of homelessness in the nation, I believe, and Portland is awful. I feel genuinely bad for these people, but a lot of them browbeat you and tell all kinds of outrageous stories. I've had several encounters of a person asking me to take them to an ATM when I don't have cash on me, and one weirdo who wanted me to walk with him to the supermarket to buy him groceries.Couple that with every other street corner in downtown being populated with some college kid wanting you to sign a petition, and it's turned me into a cynical asshole when I'm up there.
RumsfeldsReplacement: Lollipop165: My guess was New Orleans.But about NYC being #12, we have wackos, but at least in Manhattan its mostly Midwestern yuppies, not artsy types any more. From the article though, NYC ranked last place for cleanliness? Considering the amount of people, I consider Manhattan very clean. Queens is motherfing disgusting though. And a city with some of the worst drivers? I consider NYC drivers to be among the best... particularly compared to places like Boston and LA.Manhattan is constantly FILLED with 8 foot high piles of garbage bags. Right there on the sidewalk. That is clean to you? no other city i've ever been to, even outside the US, has that going on.
