at a bonfire and someone threw a plastic cup in the fire. everyone immediately stopped what they were doing to yell collectively at him about what he was doing to the environment, then went back to drinking
only in oregon

I have done this exact same thing in Oregon as well.
And no, it's not bad for the environment (except for the littering), but it is bad for people. Burning plastic creates dioxins, which are very harmful. Dioxins are the chemicals in agent orange that gave so many people cancer. So if you like cancer, go ahead!
PS: All you douche bags who hate "liberals," "environmentalists," and "pussies" can suck my dick. If you don't care about your own environment, get the fuck out.
Oregon's amazing. So glad I was born here and not somewhere where people actually think people who recycle are lame or use "liberal" as an insult.
It's not stupid to care about the earth, we're all living here.
but yeah Oregon for life! The liberals AND the conservatives.
I love being an Oregonian. It's hilarious how the recycling centers at the UO dorms get so full of beer cans on the weekends.
Also, not everyone who recycles is stupid. Actually, in Oregon everyone recycles. Even conservatives :)
Dude I freaking love Oregon!
why should you hate them? they care about the state of the world they live in. what's wrong with that?
only an oregonian would understand just how hilarious this is.
how i miss that place. :]
seriously. it doesn't even matter if you're for or against "saving the earth." If you're from Oregon, it's hilarious--because we all know people like this.
Why should you hate them? They care about lighting large fires in open fields with dried grass and consuming copious amounts of alcohol in the process. What's wrong with that? Nothing. Absolutely nothing, I tell you.
Oregon actually blackmails people into recycling.
Bottle deposits are lovely!
<3 oregon. wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
1:32 are you fucking retarded, they crush all the cans into bails to ship them before they are melted and reused. did you think they just washed them and refilled them. fucking idiot haha
i thought this was funny and slightly endearing.... apparently i'm alone in this :(
I did that and I live in jersey
I also love how that is the first response of any conservative. is that really the most intelligent thought that ran through your head when you read 1:07?
2: Laughing at the fool who think's cans are 'refilled' and sealed back up with new drinks. And just as many laughs at the moron who thinks people are some magical creation that were made to look after this world and make it last for ever.. every culture of bacteria only lasts so long, and that's all we are.
8:06 Go back to whatever shithole you came from, I bet you get free healthcare here don't you??
Only in Ann Arbor, too! Gotta love hippies! :D
1:07 Shut up and go hug a tree!
Central Oregon: where you can find people listening to rap music while driving MUDDIN TRUCKS with confederate flag stickers on the back.
It's SO true!!! Oh Oregon!!!
i was in oregon at a party and that totally happened. well, that always happens...
also, we recycle our shit cause they give us money for it! being poor sucks and getting money for doing virtually nothing that also helps the earth, why the fuck not?
Not only an Oregon thing...they do it all over California too. Drink around large fires and yell at the people with use wood with paint on it, throw plastic into the fire or cook meat.
This is why Portland, OR is on the official list of "Stuff White People Like."
Ah! This totally sounds like Oregon, 100%. Gotta love it :)
Home sweet Home.
All you Oregon haters a just jealous. We know how to have a pretty state, just like the other states that recycle like us.
The tfln was funny but that doesnt mean everyone needs to get all butt hurt. Chill out.
7:48am-yes yes we do, its a college rite of passage, actually.
How I love the Pacific Northwest. :)
lovelovelove this post.
Wow, I hate my state
wow...i just read all of these and noticed that the conservatives in the debate can only say stuff like "your an idiot" or "go fuck yourself" to anything anybody says while the liberals prove valid points in their side of the argument
1:07 AM did you know 74% of all statistics are made up?
oh also....Corvallis all the way xD
ausust 20 352, I'm from oregon, i've lived here my whole life, and i use "liberal" as an insult as much as i can.
There may be some dirty hippies in Oregon, but it's one of the most beautiful places on earth.
That person didn't mean that they refilled the bottles and sealed them back up. In Oregon we return our cans is through machines which read the bar codes, smashed cans don't work. Of course you can recycle them normally but then you won't get $$$ for them. I get pissed at people who smash cans too.
yes because all environmentalists drink in open fields and light large fires...way to generalize.
541 for the win!
oregon is the shit!
The thing that I hate most about where I live is that EVERYONE is the same. You have your cookie cutter white folks, drug and alcohol abusing teenagers, skating duchebags, mexicans kind of, and that's it. NO diversity whatsoever. Oh, and you also have the goat fucking inbred here.
no one has ever been to Oregon and not left thinking it was the most beautiful place ever. perhaps that's why Oregonians care so much... they don't want their state to begin looking as shitty as most of the others...
OMG OMG OMG. I totally know these people. SO oregon. Damn.
Cows farting pollutes more than we do, and we're the ones killing cows.
fucking liberal pussies...they get all pissy about nothing
ok so 541 is all the way from southern Oregon to about Corvallis and pretty much from there up it's 503 so don't be dissin Portland in this. Also don't be saying shit about Oregon if you don't live here! Sooo we recycle that doesn't mean we are liberal freaks who run around trying to claim we can change the world . Wejust like to recycle. Geez! Aalso only a true Oregonian would understand how funy thins is
Haha i live in oregon full of fuckin hippies and dumbass liberals
hey dipshits! you can take crushed cans to a metal salvage yard to get paid for them.
haha.. my kind of people.
and to whoever said this: "We aren't doing anything TO the environment, why should we do something FOR it?"
whaaaaat the FUCK?! haha.. are you.. are you alive? do you occasionally look around you or watch the news? you're dumb. read a book sometime.
agreed - NOT only in Oregon, or any other place that people think they are unique. get over yourselves fuckwads
12.38 "We aren't doing anything TO the environment, why should we do something FOR it?"
- you are a fucking dumbass.
you really think we aren't doing anything to the environment? you imbecile.
Refreshment is the only thing
Yep, that makes sense. Because the vast majority of scientists are retarded. Yep...
Yeah go Oregon smoke pot
ahhh oregon, so many wonderful adventures had in that state!
O and to the person who said "if individuals do it once in a while, no big deal." really? So I can ignore the idiots who say things like "fuckin hippy nazis" (btw it is hippie not hippy) and bash liberals in generalized statements... but shit this statement is just pure unadulterated ignorance.
8:06 Likes when little boys fondle his ding dong.
Sorry, if you have a problem with human beings who can enjoy life without worrying about where we'll be 1,000 years from now, maybe you need to take that stick out of your ass and use it to get around, because cars are just too damn dangerous! Praise the lord Barack Obama, for he must save us from our horrible selves and drown us in generational debt.
this is way better than the posts about shit, etc..
Washington is right up there with you!!!
Why does this TFLN even warrant a political debate? It's Oregon for gods sake! They're barely even a state.
Good point. Oreganadian children would suck.
12:26 am don't hate oregon! so we have a lot of IGNORANT liberals but oregon is the best place ever! and i laughed at this because it's true, oregon is like that.
also, 2:45 am "da Eug" is Eugene
Oregon is where you find the really farmville lol.
Canby Oregon to be specific.
11:06 you are right. To the liberals on here, you are so fuckin stupid we dont even need valid points to prove how stupid you are. Everyone knows you are full of shit and want to suck obamas balls so just get over it.
(we do get paid to recycle here in oregon)
anyways, everyone here recycles because our state is so much more shockingly beautiful than everywhere else. Even the craziest right-wingers are environmentalists here. Everyone is.
Fuck me! I never want to live in Oregon...and I thought Seattle was full of pussies!
representing eugene right here! south hills baby
august 20 12:43 SO TRUE!!!
Hey now, Oregon is the shit. And sooo what if the main majority of the people here are Liberal, Your just jealous were a state of GREEN :)
Wait, do people outside of Oregon NOT recycle all their cans and bottles?
I wonder why we've had three ice ages before humans even existed? Hmmm, maybe because the climate shifts on it's own! If we are causing global warming, I guess we'll keep nice and toasty during the next ice age.
of course you're the only ones who make points, what were the rest of us thinking
11:55, and you're fucking ignorant, just like every conservative.
541 isn't just central Oregon, I'm from Eugene (Da Eug!) and I have a 541 area code.
If you live in oregon you would find this funny!
not everyone in oregon is a liberal!!!!!!!! If you say you hate oregon and that nobody likes us then fuck you!!!!!!!!
I hate the people that say "only in..." idiots
9:17am- and one I'm rather proud to have undertaken, I might add
hahahaha funniest tfln ive seen
i am amused that people would be worried about one cup and not all the trees that were cut down for the bonfire...
I still have a headache! :(
you all need serious lives. have fun changing the world, you're all just full of yourselves.
Yeah, you're right 1:31. Some of us DO worry about the world we're leaving our children, our grand-children, and so on. If that makes me a liberal, then I'm a liberal.
It's one of the most beautiful places on earth... If you don't count like 50 or 60 other places.
I love this state :) I hope they were from eugene or ashland though.
lol...stupid tree huggers
We aren't doing anything TO the environment, why should we do something FOR it?
moving out of oregon today. this made me cry. i will miss this shit!
Pshhhh this is just like WWU, every recycling bin I saw was filled with half gallons by monday, and of course after a good WW <3
A climatologist doesn't exist, smartass! Scientists may be smart, but scientologists are not.
Oregon only has 2 or 3 area codes, people..
So True, only in oregon.
i can relate.
i love this.
I am amused that Americans can have a debate over public policy on a website about the stupid shit people do...
awww... i miss oregon a lot. :(
8:06 Are you kidding?? You realize they are taking about a political party affliliation not the definition out of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, right?? Oh and by the way generally Liberals are for big government therefore null and voiding your first definition. If you have been paying any attention to this adminstration you would understand.
Dude I live in bend too and it fucking sucks here. Can anyone say DIVERSITY? we sure can't.
1:12 get drunk and your head will feel wonderful
i would say more than shut the fuck up, but one word spelled incorrectly and my whole point is moot. because instead of everything i just pointed out they'll point out something stupid like how i used your instead of you're. now you want a talking debate....i dig you a hole and bury you with facts and statistics.
this is cute and so true
and regardless of how you feel about the environment, its still hilarious
happens in mass too
Really, 1:02? Are you a climatologist?
Annoy a Liberal, Help yourself!!
We have an impact on the world that is only skin deep. We don't do anything that has severe negative effects on the world.
some of you people take this shit way to serious
Yes. Everyone here is a stupid environmentalist liberal, but, isn't that all liberals?
2% of the atmosphere is greenhouse gases 3% of greenhouse gases are CO2 4% of Co2 is caused by humans. WE DO NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
that wasnt even funny
No there really isn't anything wrong with burning dead foliage. I'm all for protecting the environment from real idiots, but I also cannot stand when people get all up in arms over petty shit like a plastic cup in a fire. If everyone on earth did it, it would be bad, if individuals do it once in a while, no big deal.
i grew up in southern oregon, full of redneck hick conservative idiots. . . even they recycle. though they do also vote republican and make tire fires.
Not only in Oregon....I've done it. In Minnesota.
You Yanks are crazy! Lighten up...its almost Christmas!
1:02...I want to move to Portland. Seattle, sadly, can't hold a candle to it
1:21 this is because we have a brain and can see past all the bullshit they try and sell us
I'm not the one with the headache, but sometimes caffeine is bad for migraines.
As for the environment debate, every little bit helps. Do your part...it'll pay off one day.
Just chill, people...enjoy the earth we have. Peace and love. Wooo.
8:06 ur going to try and make us feel stupid when u have no idea what the hell we are talking about....u think were talking about bn giving? fucktard......we talking about ppl that want right for prisoners (cuz god forbid a child rapist doesn't get his 3 meals a day) We should all drive lil hybrid cars (thanks but i still to my chevy silverado) i'm not paying for the gases my truck puts off (stupidest idea ever, how is that gonna fix things?) global warming (mass hysteria for nothing)
I love Oregon so much. I'm going to go a hug a tree now.
Chillax people. And stop getting all butt hurt over nothing. :)
wow... so is everyone on this website stupid environmental liberals?
or Marin County.
Uhm actually!!! Not every Oregonian recycles!!! I'm conservative AND go to UO an definitely never recycle! It all goes in a black garbage bag at my place! Then the dumpster!
9:35 thank you for having the intelligence enviro-idiots don't.
10:10 no problem anytime!
no, i'm not a retard.
Dude i always get shit for throwing the plastic in the fire but i mean no trash bag where else should it gooo?
TFLN is definitely the perfect public forum to create a dialogue about global warming. Noone's gonna make generalizations or be bipartisan here AT ALL. And you people wonder why the other side isn't listening to you...
haha I love Liberal VS. conservative debates on a texting website. there is nothing intellectual or enlightening in any of the arguments, EVER.
I also love love loveeee the people who said we are not doing anything to the environment, so why help it? hmmm, God be with you I guess.
Home sweet home, nothing says "party" like environmentaly friendly drunks. I miss the coast.
Oregonians love the earth! Lots call it "gods country" which is pretty cool if you ask me. Everyone should recycle, liberal or not, it's silly to be wasteful at all.. It saves money too!
wow what a liberal thing to say
All of the liberals in here should read Ted, white and blue by ted nugent. I did and i'm a new found republican. EVERYTHING HE SAYS MAKES SENSE.
he's a hard core republican but also an environmentalist.
I swear I have this huge migraine and I can't think straight and I'm still smarter than you liberals.
I have a horrible headache. Any remedies?
that was stupid, not funny.
I wan to know were this party was, cause I live in the 541 area. I'm guessing in bend. And that's it..
and massachusetts haha
Hahaha oh my god that's so true. Washington as well, but my Oregon friends are waaaayyyy more into it...and I love it. PORTLAND RULES!
Don't know where you're getting those numbers 107, but CO2 levels in the atmosphere have risen 36% since the industrial revolution. As for the other numbers, scientists aren't even sure what percentage of the greenhouse effect is attributable it CO2, so it could be much higher than your dubious claim of 3%. They do know it is at least 9%.
<3 oregon. i don't see what the issue is. this is soooo freaking funny. who cares if they told ANOTHER PERSON to not throw their plastic in the fire, it doesn't effect you. SHUT UP! by the way, i'd fucking love to go to canada, they are a ten times better country then here. less dumbasses.
haha not only in oregon... this has definitely happened in ontario lol
im and enviromentalist liberal who lives in oregon. and im pretty sure i've been to parties where things like this happened. Everyone hates when someone crushes a can after its empty. you cant recycle it then.
i like your style, 9:33
Climate change isn't real
1: Wtf are you burning a cup for, you could've had a drink from that!
But do americans seriously have filthy keg parties and all get 'drunk' on piss weak beer in plastic cups?
This happened when we went camping... Yes I'm from Oregon gotta love it!
Confuse a Liberal use facts and logic!!
You ask me how to cure your headache, use a gun.
yes! im glad 9:50 agrees! hell yeah lol
wrong, happens in wisconsin too
Once again liberals trying to "fix" a problem that isn't there...
Were we at the same bon fire? This same sinario happened to me too. we had marshmallows and poker sticks to roast them on too it was sick!
meh.... we do this in ma too. sorry oregon, you're not special, just liberal.
This had to have been the bonfire in Ashland the other night. As an Oregonian, I can honestly say this isn't the strangest thing I've seen
I LOVE IT! I'm from Colorado. The exact same thing would happen here.
Nothing but a bunch of inbred goat fuckers in central oregon. HEEEEEE DAWGY LETS GO HAVE A TRACTOR RACE. That's actually a thing here. MAD we have the pregnant man. Awesome.
guy with migraine -- take caffeine. If it's not a migraine, just a headache, take some ibuprofin & get some sleep!
Oregon should go up and mate with Canada- WE DON'T WANT YOU HERE.
i hate environmentalists
if Oregon and Canada just mated and didn't have kids.. that would be beyond words. good idea :)
Where I'm from we toss gas and used motor oil on the fire. Stupid tree huggers.
