Portlanders love their food. How could we not? Portland attracts some of the most talented and creative chefs in the entire country cooking up some of the tastiest and most gorgeous dishes in the world.
However, are you one of those Portlanders who goes to the animal shelter and coos over the goofy-looking dog? Did you like the Pontiac Aztek, one of the most hideous examples of committee-designed automobiles ever (best known from Breaking Bad)?

I’m a 37-year-old guy who’s worked out at least six days a week ever since I was 28 years old. I take vitamins supplements every day, go to my doctor for physicals, I don’t smoke – I thought I was healthy.

Bicyclists are legally required to come to a complete stop at stop signs. Skateboarders are not permitted outside of skate parks within Portland’s city limits. Oregon drivers are not allowed to use their cellphones while driving. Laws that aren’t enforced aren’t laws, they’re just suggestions.
