Don’t miss me too much! 🙂


Portland Reservoir Drained After Urination Situation

June 16, 2011

It seems that Oregon’s Portland Water Bureau is draining an 8 million-gallon reservoir after surveillance cameras caught a man urinating into it this week.

I guess I read it wrong when I heard that there was a “leak” in the reservoir…

From CNN:

The move will cost the water bureau $35,000 $28,000 in lost revenue and $7,500 in disposal costs, CNN affiliate KATU-TV reports.

Is that worth it when the urine involved is really a drop in the bucket?

Scientifically, no, said Dave Stone, an assistant professor of toxicology at Oregon State University, who spoke to The Oregonian newspaper about the, er, leak.

“How many animals are doing that or birds?” Stone asked. “I don’t want to second-guess the city, but I can’t think of anything chemically that would have me be concerned.”

Intruder Fears Homeowner, Calls 911

March 9, 2011

You’ve got to love this one!

A man who broke into a house in Portland, Oregon, called police. The reason: he was afraid the homeowner may have a gun.

From CNN:

The suspect, Timothy James Chapek, was in the bathroom taking a shower when the homeowner returned to the house Monday night, Portland police said in a statement.

Accompanied by two German shepherds, the homeowner asked Chapek what he was doing in the house.

Chapek locked himself in the bathroom and made an emergency call, police said. He said he had broken into the house, the owner had come home, and that he was concerned the owner might have a gun.
