    I work downtown in Spokane and live up North...know where some of these hotels are.

    Stupid rapist for telling her in advance, and stupid girl for giving out her address over XBox Live.

    Sigh.

    This wouldn't have happened if they'd all been playing COD 4. No one talks in that game...

    I used to live in Spokane and this doesn't surprise me. The place is just barely better than Boise.

    I saw my first ever crack-head in Spokane.

    True story.

    That stuff smells horrible. Why would anyone even get near someone smoking it - let alone smoke it. ???

    Actually Spokane's big drug is meth. All over the place. A lot of kids grow up around there without any parental supervision so having kids getting stalked online isn't all that difficult to believe.

    A little OT but why isn't meth big in the UK? I see pills everywhere and LSD (at least in Manchester) but nothing like meth. At first I thought it was meth as in the cleaning alcohol.

    Methanol isn't just a cleaning product. It is used for lots of things (don't drink it).

    Methamphetamine is a drug that you can read up on at wikipedia or some other place, I guess.

    Anyway, this happened in the Logan neighborhood, right?

    Spokane has a severe hobo problem. They're everywhere downtown. Caught one with some white powder in a bathroom once. The extremities of Spokane are actually pretty nice (like I said, I live in the more northern part) but the further downtown you get the more hobos and juvenile delinquents you find.

    Though our biggest problem is meth.

    My father was actually head of DEA down here for a while before retiring; they transferred him down from California.

    I'm surprised by the amount of people here who've been to/know of Spokane, however :)

    I lived in Kent for a year – I'm pretty familiar with Spokane myself. :)

    Anyhow, that's just... sick. And disgusting. And it makes me want to throw up.

    Was it one of them noose traps that gets them by the leg, or was the powder under a box which you then dropped on the hobo? :D

    Well I was in Coeur D' Alene, ID at the time, but Spokane was a rocks-throw away. (so I went there quite a bit)

    In spite of some of the "classy" people there - the area was beautiful. At least, I thought it was.

    First things first, a girl playing Halo? Since the day Halo 2 came out till now, I have played with 2 girls.

    Second, Spokane is a poor mans Seattle. Spokane to me has no personality, besides the meth heads. I find the more and more I go up there, the more I realize there is little to do. Clinkerdaggers though is great.

    I pity girls who play online games with voice chat. Every time I see girls online, some jerk comes around and starts obsessing over them. There's such a ridiculous amount of sexism online. Most of them are either 12 years old or 40, either one living with their mother ;)

    I even see it with people who play female characters with female names on games without voice chat- for all they know, it could be a man playing on the other end, too!

    Pssh.

    Boise is SO much better than Spokane. I was up in Spokane back in November for training. Stayed at the Lusso downtown. One of the nights I decided I would take a late November stroll around downtown and was overwhelmed with stench and hobos. I stayed in and ordered take-out the other five days.

    Boise doesn't have nearly the meth or homeless problem Spokane does. Although the meth problem is growing, but that seems to be a Pacific Northwest thing from what I've read. Pretty heavy use in Seattle and Portland as well. :(

    But back on topic. That is absolutely ridiculous that this guy would come all the way from New York to stalk these girls. Scary stuff. Imagine if the parents were gone at the time or something. Yikes.

    He almost did one of my life plans too! Drive across the US, damn.

    A little off topic but my Caroline is a bit annoyed that there are no female characters in TF2.

    That's funny. :D
