If you find yourself hitching south on the 101 in CA out of The Bay, you may want to avoid the southernmost onramp in Gilroy, right off of Monterey Road, next to the Hilton. Or at the very least hitch at the very bottom of the onramp. It goes up a hill, two lanes with a very wide pullover shoulder. It looked perfect so I went up near the top to give people time to see me. A shady looking dude is walking up the opposite side and once he gets closer near I am, asks what I’m doing. I tell him I’m trying to hitch to LA. He gets pissed and starts screaming about how “we live here” (referring to the patch of trees and tall grass behind him and how I need to go to the bottom and stop “bringing sweat on them.” Luckily a lady pulled up right as I was heading down and gave me a ride. So yeah, territorial homebums on that ramp, at least as of now.

THANKYOU for illustrating current political leanings in Cali on ramps!
Geez
Are you serious
That’s like saying
“ the air in this room is mine to breathe”
Ridiculous

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I've made some layout adjustments to featured content threads. They should look much prettier on mobile devices, although I'm still working on how the main featured page displays on those devices...
Due to a software bug, I've had to disable the ability for users to delete their accounts until a fix is released (hopefully no more than a few days).
You ever look back and kind of wonder even if you wanted to try to fix things... How you even begin to apologise for Fucking up someone's life??
