On Wednesday a 19 year old was filmed peeing into Portland’s reservoir, while accompanied by two other men who were ‘carrying skateboards’ (side note: of course they were skaters). As a safety precaution, the Portland Water Bureau decided that it was in everyone’s best interest to flush all 140 million litres of water, and refill the reservoir with fresh supplies. Which seems, you know, insane – especially when coastal cohabitators California are experiencing one of the worst droughts on record.
Yo Portland, I thought you were the home of grunge. When did you get so uptight?
