* Also, the people on Portland busses are scary as all get out. Eugene bus riders are usually earth-concious hippies who park and ride, or young mothers who are so broke that they can't afford a car AND two kids AND she's under 23. In Portland, the bus riders are scary strung out low-income (or high income with most of their income going to drugs?!) and college kids. Because the earth-concious hippies drive their Subaru Outbacks and don't actually care about car-pooling/keeping their cars at home...as long as they look cool and follow the trend, that's all that matters. We refer to them as hip hip hippies. Or hipster hippies. Or whatever.
