David Shaff, Portland's water bureau administrator, reserves a special disgust specifically for human urine. In 2011, when Shaff drained the reservoir following a urination, he reasoned to the Portland Mercury, "Do you want to be drinking someone's pee?… There's probably no regulation that says I have to be doing it but, again, who wants to be drinking pee?"

In 2011, Shaff told the Mercury that the reservoir is not shut down for nature's transgressions. "If we did that, we'd be shutting it off all the time. We fish out animals or things that have blown in all the time," Shaff said.
Portland throws out 38 million gallons of water after someone peed in it.

Mobile is now around half of all time spent online in developed markets and will be the dominant global consumer computing platform of the next decade or two. And the sheer scale of the smartphone businesses is driving a reshaping of all the dynamics of the technology industry, while its supply chain is enabling all sorts of new segments that would never have been possible before - drones, wearables, VR, micro-satellites, internet-of-things devices and lots of other things besides.

That one was awesome. The kids cracking up was fun, and then the Dad forgetting he was in reverse. Classic ;)

If his ship was sinking slowly then yes he should stay with the ship to manage his crew and make sure passengers and crew get off safely, however the ferry rolled over little he can do at the point.

+Abraham Williams Maybe the new Nexus 7 or Nexus 10. Seeing that N10 is old and needs a long awaited refresh I suppose they can announce and giveaway it to attendees at this I/O. Just a supposition.

Show up early at this hole in the wall place else you'll get stuck in the line around the block. Even when busy though the time between ordering and plating is short so be ready to take on some deliciously spiced food. I had the bibimbap with Mongolian chicken and it was so massive, it would easily have fed two with a small side or dessert.

Had lunch on a lazy Friday with a couple coworkers. The staff was friendly and the chef came out to chat about the special of the day. Croque Mademoiselle was my dish of choice and man was it good, maybe a little too good. The only thing about the place I would change is for it to be open for dinner.

Tasty spot on the corner of the Ferry Building with seats outside to enjoy the fresh sea air in. I had the BBQ Chicken on a torpedo roll which was a good combination of smokey BBQ, slaw, and toppings. They had a delicious sounding pumpkin milkshake that I really wanted to try but just didn't have the space for. Next time.

The wild Maine blueberry jam is the best you will ever have. It's like eating a blueberry pie on bread.

Had a cheesy chicken sandwich with cheese and some extra cheese. Hmmmm delicious. Their fries are a solid example of how standard potatoes should be fried. Don't forget the ketchup!
