These $80 Brooks Running Shoes from Costco Cost More to Operate Than Your Car? Yep

Word on the Street: “100% Human Hair, Tangle-Free”

Proof That SFGov Has a Sense of Humor: A Parking Ticket for Just $23?

TweetThis ticket was issued in July 2014. The officer wrote $26 but the actual fine was just $23. It was for “parking on grass” except there wasn’t any actual grass parked upon, oh well. Anyway, it’s obvious that Rec and Park hasn’t caught up with the SFMTA in the ticket price inflation competition: Why isn’t […]

The Fast-Moving Cars of Sunday Streets 2014 – Boy, There Were a Lot of People Driving Around This Go-Around

TweetJust saying. Dude here was driving up Fillmore like it was just another Sunday, going at about 15 MPH. This was on the McDonalds block, which was empty of anything to do with Sunday Streets, so it might have been hard for the driver to know anything special was going on. Is Sunday Streets dying?

Getting the Feeling that the People Fixing Our Firebombed Chinese Consulate Doorway DON’T Know What They’re Doing

Tweet(I don’t know how else to say it (without using even more gerunds…)) I’ve never seen anything like this – every weekend they’re out there on Laguna staring up at the damage caused by a Chinese citizen like nine months ago. Does this ladder arrangement look safe to you, Gentle Reader? Mmmm… Speaking of ladders […]

How Not To Drive, Fell and Masonic Edition: Should You Stop for a Red in a Crosswalk? NO

TweetNorthbound Masonic at Fell: There are a lot of places to stop here. Where you’re supposed to stop is the stop line before the crosswalk, but this driver chose the far end of the crosswalk. Bad form. Here’s the thing – once you’ve crossed over your stop line, you’ve committed yourself to the intersection and […]

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Jennifer Siebel Newsom Take a Strong Stand Against Jim Harbaugh over 49er Ray McDonald

TweetWell here it is, for Roman Catholic Jim “Due Process” Harbaugh, who’s just six or so years off of probation himself, on the subject of Ray McDonald: “‘…zero tolerance’ are empty words…” Yesterday’s press release: News release Lt.

Octavia Boulevard Update: Anybody Who Claims This Short Road Has “High-Speed Motor Traffic” is Lying

TweetSimply. Now if you want real “high-speed motor traffic,” well then look to the 280 freeway. But if you want a poorly-designed glorified freeway offramp with lots of slow-moving bumper-to-bumper gridlock, well then Octavia is your bingo. See? This is typical. Traffic has been jammed up here starting about a week after this road opened. […]

A Billboard I Didn’t Understand: “M&A HACK”

TweetAt first I though this billboard had something to do with the recent ill-starred Salesforce.com Hackathon. Then I thought it was a beef from a laid-off salesperson. But now I see it’s just another promotion for a business idea / patent. Boy, I love patents, don’t you? Here’s my favorite: “Method of exercising a cat […]

TweetThese days, the best you can hope for is a new car merely something like a G6, like a G6. But in my day, the car brand Pontiac was still alive and it made actual G6 cars. See? Perhaps they were rushing to meet up with the Mint Police?  And postal inspectors (they call themselves police? […]
