Portland Teen Makes Water Artisanal

"Portland, Oregon is flushing 38 million gallons (143 million liters) of drinking water down the drain because a 19-year-old man urinated in an open reservoir early on Wednesday morning, city water officials said."
—There's a much-repeated maxim in the blogging business that, "[W]hen you get to the point where all the 'people in Portland urinating into reservoirs' stories start to blend together, it is time to retire," so while it has been a pleasure spending this time with you I must take my leave, because I have an appointment at the glue factory.

I see a Chinatown sequel in this somewhere, a Josh-Harnett-is-Jake-Gittes'-grandson-transplanted-Forest-Service-Detective-type thing, I'm thinking out loud now, maybe The Three Shakes. . .

@KarenUhOh Assuming he's not playing with it.

I was not previously aware that urine contains fluoride. Huh.

I think Portland does this on purpose, just to show California they can throw water away, no problem.
