    [–] What ‘kind’ gesture actually annoys you? humanclock 1 points ago in AskReddit

    It is horrible here in Portland. People are so damn bleeding heart that they want to give up their right of way to the less fortunate. Portlandia even made a skit about it, taking place not far from my old home.

    [–] 12lb BW = how many times over 35lbs in reality? humanclock 1 points ago in PacificCrestTrail

    I think I did it in 2L. Did an epic amount of screwing around at the border and left around 2pm. Dropped in and climbed back out of Hauser Canyon at night. Stealth camped on ridge and dropped into Lake Morena in the morning.

    [–] DEAR PORTLAND: February 18, 2019 WEEKLY RANT THREAD humanclock 12 points ago in Portland

    THERE IS ANOTHER STORE? I HAVE BEEN STUCK IN LINE AT SAFEWAY HERE ON POWELL SINCE MARCH 24TH, 2017. MY WIFE KEEPS CALLING ME WONDERING WHEN I AM COMING HOME WITH THE KALE.

    [–] DEAR PORTLAND: February 18, 2019 WEEKLY RANT THREAD humanclock 8 points ago in Portland

    I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS TEMPING 20 YEARS AGO ALL OVER PORTLAND, DOING DATA ENTRY. IT WAS REALLY EYE OPENING ON HOW PLEASANT OR TOXIC SOME PROMINENT PORTLAND BUSINESSES WERE. ONE PLACE THE STAFF WERE ALL JOKEY AND SEEMED LIKE THEY WOULD EVEN HANG OUT TOGETHER OUTSIDE OF WORK. AT ANOTHER ONE, AS SOON AS ONE PERSON WOULD LEAVE THE ROOM, THE OTHER WOULD DRAW THEIR KNIVES AND GET ALL STABBY IN THE BACK TOWARDS THAT PERSON WHO JUST LEFT.

    [–] Where to buy mechanical keyboards locally? humanclock 2 points ago in Portland

    Related, where exactly can you buy computer things in Portland that is not Best Buy, Fry's (ugh), or "we can have it here in a couple days". My goto shop down the street on Powell went out of business.

    I DON'T ANSWER CALLS FROM NUMBERS I DON'T RECOGNIZE. THE WORST PART, I HAD AN ISSUE WITH MY CREDIT CARD AND WHEN I CALLED THEM ABOUT IT, THEY SAID "WE TRIED CONTACTING YOU BY PHONE TWICE, BUT WERE UNABLE TO REACH YOU"

    BILLION DOLLAR IDEA: IF ONLY TECHNOLOGY EXISTED FOR A WAY THAT WHEN SOMEONE LIKE CHASE CUSTOMER SERVICE CALLS AND YOU DO NOT ANSWER, THERE WAS SOME WAY TO PROMPT THEM TO RECORD AN AUDIO FILE AND STORE IT SOMEWHERE ON THE PHONE PROVIDER'S NETWORK. THEN, THE PERSON WHO WAS TRYING TO BE REACHED (ME), COULD PLAY BACK THIS AUDIO FILE OVER THE PHONE, AND THEN CONTACT THE ORIGINAL CALLER. KIND OF LIKE A "POST IT NOTE", BUT WORKS OVER THE PHONE. ANGEL INVESTORS, WHERE ARE YOU? GET IN ON THE GROUND FLOOR OF MY IDEA!

    [–] Snowshoes in the Sierras humanclock 2 points ago in PacificCrestTrail

    Wait and see what things look like in May, if there is still a lot of snow then have them mailed to you. Spending 90 minutes to waist deep slog the half mile up Mather Pass at 10am is no fun! I would do the slog again though sans snowshoes if the non-pass sections of the trail were free of snow. If the trail was still pretty covered though like in 1995/2011/2017, I would take them.

    Worst case, you are carrying snowshoes you don't need. I'm totally playing the old man card here, but I find it kind of funny about people obsessing over ULA and stressed about increasing their base weight up to a whopping 20 pounds.

    [–] This person sold their VHS player on eBay and got a surprise letter in the mailbox. humanclock 1 points ago in pics

    I miss mine too. I didn't really know my maternal grandpa because he died about two months after I was born. Years later though...Willie Nelson's mom got buried right near him a couple plots away.

    [–] This clothing store is undergoing construction, so they dressed their mannequins Appropriately. humanclock 23 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    ah, just like the regional manager who wants to get the scale out and weigh french fry portions behind the line when ticket times are running 30 min and the plumbing system is backing up again.

    [–] PCT packing list (mid-March 2019) humanclock 6 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in PacificCrestTrail

    Take hand sanitizer with you and store with your toilet paper...but be careful taking soap into the woods.

    Even if it says it is "biodegradeable", it is only as such that you have to bury your soapy water. I really wish places like REI and such wouldn't sell "biodegradeable soap" because people think you can just lather up and jump into the creek for a bath. I grew to hate soap after my PCT hike because more than once I went to drink water from a creek and have it be undrinkable due to soap. Sure enough, I'd walk upstream to a pool that was nothing but suds. I'd have to throw it out and hike another dry five miles until the next water source. LNT even has a whole page about it.

    [–] The Uber/Lyft drivers stopping in traffic lanes for pickup. Come On! humanclock 2 points ago in Portland

    I can't find it but years ago I read an interesting article about two guys that worked for MapQuest whose job was basically to just drive around and "field check" their driving directions for things like this.

    Or turning off CChavez onto Clinton (against the no right turn sign) to pick someone up.

    I enjoy these NZ photos, but all I can think about is viewing this amazing scenery while getting the shit bitten out of me by sandflies.

    [–] Payless ShoeSource to close all locations, including 14 in the Portland area humanclock 18 points ago in Portland

    Eh, when I worked in the kitchen at a Red Robin...cheap shoes with good insoles were the way to go. They got incredibly nasty after a week on the line. It has been 25 years but I can still smell that stench.

    [–] The grocery store is not a place for your pets humanclock 13 points ago in Portland

    I asked a Home Depot employee about dogs in the store...he said he would take dogs in the store over kids any day. He said the biggest difference between kids and dogs is that dogs pee in plain sight and it is easy to clean up. Kids...they crawl back into the overstock and piss all over the merchandise.

    [–] Flooding at Deep Creek Hot Springs humanclock 5 points ago in PacificCrestTrail

    Ok, I was a bit apprehensive about posting anecdotal evidence concerning human shit from the time I went through there six years ago...like maybe it was a fluke, sadly it doesn't seem to be.

    [–] What are you doing with your car before hitting the trail? humanclock 2 points ago in PacificCrestTrail

    Yeah, leaving a car for extended amounts of time is bad for the rear main oil seal. A car I had in the 90s had the seal go out because the previous owner was a flight attendant and she left it parked for up to a month at a time, plus my grandparents traveled for six months that the seal eventually went out on their car too because it hadn't been driven.

    [–] Flooding at Deep Creek Hot Springs humanclock 4 points ago in PacificCrestTrail

    Well, that is one way to keep the drunken non-hiker people from riding bikes and pooping on the trail.
