Well Travis, facts are facts. Stinky people just flat out stink. The tattoos and piercings are not the problem. It is the incessant mooching to which these stinky people feel compelled to expose positive working citizens. Want to look weird, at least be able to do it on your own dime. Too bad, because Portland does have it's charm.

Not the kind of town to raise kids. The level of transients that the city nurtures is unbelievable. The preference is to make it difficult, if not impossible, for businesses to thrive and do everything possible to ensure that the transient population blooms. Maybe that is what all the gray and rain is for. Growing bums. Many people are just dirty, while others are totally lacking in manners. I have never lived in an area where so many women and men spit...not off to the side, but right in the middle of where everyone walks. Educational funding is not handled sufficiently and the police force is non-responsive at best. The short summers, if they appear, can be nice, but not worth the 9+ months of rain. But,if you want to live in a non-safe, business deprived, bum infested mud hole, then Eugene could be the place for you.
