This really sucks. I live about a mile away from Mt. Tabor. When I first saw this I thought it was a link to an event that happened about 3 years ago, where SOME PEOPLE PISSED INTO THE MT. TABOR RESERVOIR.

This is just more fuel for the fire kindling the campaign to cover up the reservoir more quickly (it's scheduled to be disconnected completely by 2016 I think.) I go on hikes up there all the time, and the view is really breathtaking (also you're on a volcano.) It really won't be the same without the open reservoirs... :(

I really don't give a fuck if you piss in public. I was a lifeguard so I've seen plenty of it. And yesterday (today?) I might have been drinking one of these assholes' piss, but birds and other wildlife piss or shit in it all the time and nobody's complained for as long as it's been there.

It doesn't get filtered or anything before it reaches your mouth??

infinite zest - 2014-04-17
but this was a human, not an animal. A human who should know better, and probably remembered what happened before, where the city lost its collective shit

It gets filtered-the-shit-out-of, literally.

I heard abut this last week and it made me think of all the times I've seen people pee in reservoirs and all the people I know who've peed in reservoirs when I wasn't there.

This is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard of.
infinite zest - 2014-04-17
It's beyond stupid. I've been as drunk as I've ever been, on a skateboard, and I've pissed in a bush or something. It's not something I'm proud of, but it's either piss somewhere or wind up with pissed jeans. Instinctually you still go towards the bush or whatever's the nearest place to just get it done. Due to filtration someone could throw zyklon b in there and nobody would get sick, but throwing poison into a reservoir is like pissing in one. You know what you're doing.

"Drunk as I've ever been in that park" is what I meant to say. Sorry I'm drunk.

Old_Zircon - 2014-04-18
I meant dumping the water was stupid, I could care less if some more kids peed in it than usual, because you know it happens pretty regularly pretty much everywhere. On top of all of the ducks that shit in it.

Old_Zircon - 2014-04-18
I think you were suggesting that peeing in the reservoir was stupid, anyway (I mean, it is but it's not that stupid really) but I can't tell for sure because you're drunk.

infinite zest - 2014-04-18
I'm not drunk right now. I'm straight-the-fuck-fucked-up son! But yeah, it's dumb to piss in a reservoir like it's dumb to piss in someone's bathtub instead of the toilet. Goes down the same drain, but you usually only do that in your own house. These teen reservoir pissers had many places to piss. Officially, you can't climb the mountain after 10 or so at night, but people (including myself) love going up there at weird hours. Now there's going to be more security presence, which ruins it for the rest of us who like to backpack beers and walk up there after work. It all boils down to one quotable phrase, "don't piss where you drink"

EvilHomer - 2014-04-18
I have never peed in a reservoir. I have also never peed in the sink. I tried peeing in the shower once, but I didn't like it, and have not done so again.

I would, however, enjoy peeing in the Portland water administrator's mouth. Maybe he would then flush himself?

Old_Zircon - 2014-04-18
I've never peed in a reservoir either and I agree it's dumb, but it's the kind of benign, "kids being kids" dumb that shouldn't really bother anyone very much.

infinite zest - 2014-04-18
I'd like to make the analogy like.. "what if I was caught on video pissing in a skatepark, how would skaters feel.." the dumping isn't justified but there was something some years ago.. I think it was during the H1N1 scare where some bird fell into the reservoir and died and it was pretty much like "don't drink the water" which freaks people out even more.

People did get sick, because it was a strain that was relatively new.. I'm not exactly sure how all of it works (while I was a lifeguard, I just had to test for PH levels at the end of the night, but am pretty sure I could drink a pint of pee water from the kiddie pool and be fine) but if the person did have some sort of STD that is contracted by other humans (try if you want to, but you won't get AIDS from raw dogging it with a cat with Feline AIDS)

It's also the human element: if someone's walking a dog and it takes a shit, nobody thinks twice if the owner picks it up (ostensibly with one of those plastic bags (also banned in Portland now)) about how much extra dog shit is probably on their hands, but if you see a human taking a shit, you're probably not going to pick it up unless it's your own.

Because dead birds, fish, rotting plant matter, pollution, etc. is a-okay, but if someone PEED in it...

I guess they believe in homeopathic sewage or something.

Arg. I just found out that the new bridge that's being built is called "Tilikum." No joke. I've asked before but are there any Portlanders in the house? And by house I mean hizzouse.

I am currently in the hizzy.

infinite zest - 2014-04-18
Cool. I grew up in the Woodstock neighborhood and live currently in the Clinton/Division neighborhood. Maybe that's obvious from the 73q video I posted about Division St. It's a fucking mess here.

Uh-oh, please don't expel me.

Side note, I guess Poison Idea's playing tonight (4/18) at the Twilight Cafe on 14th and Powell and it's only . Maybe see ya there.

pyslexic dharmacist - 2014-04-22
Of course there's a 73q video about Division. And it probably illustrates why I'm intentionally vague when asked where I live.

The urine, is it local?

Well it's free range..

But this is teenage urine; it's almost guaranteed to be hormone-fed.
