I just moved to Portland, Oregon a week ago and it became quickly apparent that this was going to be my kind of town. Between the amazing food and the charming people, it's already feeling like home. And then I hear about something like this and my attachment goes to a whole new level.
It seems that someone has taken it upon themselves to place Mario Kart power-ups in the bike lanes along one of the streets east of the river. Speed boosts, banana peels and Starman all lay in the path of unwitting cyclists. As noted in the report above, we don't know where they came from and, frankly, I don't give a damn. This is awesome.
