Pack Mule Not Included: Used 1200mm Canon Camera Lens for $180K – “A Prodigious Measure of Ego Satisfaction”

TweetConsarnit, I remember back in aught-nine when a person could buy 47-inch focal length EOS camera lens for a mere $120,000, but these days?

Twitterloin Update: At the NeMA “New Market” Building Across the Street from Twitter HQ – A Dream Realized

TweetWhat have we here, in the historically troubled Mid Market Twitterloin area? We have luxury cars (Mercedes Benz, BMW, BMW), inane slogans, and $4000 a month studio apartments, not that I care.

Color Photograph: Sunset or Moonrise? Telegraph Hill, Sailboat, Norovirus Cruise Ship, Alcatraz, and Angel Island

TweetThe answer will amaze you, or not: This is the sun, as seen from a span of our troubled San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. It looked like the moon though. Believe that’s the troubled Star Princess, which should be norovirus-free these days. Let’s hope so.

Our Inefficient, Money-Hungry SFMTA Wants to Start Issuing Speeding Tickets, But Somehow “They Would Not Be Moving Violations?!”

TweetOh, this one’s easy  – we’re going to go from zero to Orwellian in ten seconds. Gentlemen, Start Your Engines: SFMTA Pushing For Speed Cameras In San Francisco To Improve Pedestrian Safety by Cate Cauguiran And here’s your nut graf: “SFMTA plans to present their proposal to the San Francisco County Transportation Authority later this week.

Frisco Housing, the Way You Like It, With All Sorts of Tiny Details – You Know, Just for Decoration

Artisanal Gas: “The Tires In This Vehicle Have Been Filled With Nitrogen” – An Institute for Nitrogen?

TweetOMG: Here’s the spiel from the “Get Nitrogen Institute,” complete with a promotional video from Jay Leno. And here’s Click and Clack on this subject. And here’s a dude what says the whole idea is a scam. Now do I think the world needs a Nitrogen Institute? No, I do not. And do I think […]

Drivers Still Haven’t Gotten Used to the Unique Left-Turn Setup at Fell and Masonic

TweetAnd I don’t think they ever will. In this case, the driver of the blue Toyota SUV was trying to turn left to southbound Masonic from Fell. The problem was that this lane is straight-only, so the driver of the larger white SUV laid on the horn for more than ten seconds: Then the green […]

TweetAfter years of work and study… BROADWAY TUNNEL BICYCLE PROJECT: Staff has sent a work order to the Signal Shop to have the bicycle symbol flash when turned on.

Parking On The Lawn, Frisco-Style, Special Western Addition Gentrifier Edition, Complete with a Volvo Wagon

TweetI think a Smart Car could actually fit in this “parking space” in the Western Addition and I also think that this Volvo overhangs the public sidewalk on a daily basis for the past few years: Verdict: Yellow Card. This is a clever solution to saving money, but executed 100% proper.

Oh, So This is Why San Francisco Has a Gigantic, Wasteful, Expensive, Underfunded, Profitable Street-Sweeping Program

TweetHere’s a block on Laguna: Of course most blocks in San Francisco get swept waaaaaay too often, even after the recent relaxation in scheduling that some areas enjoy. So my conclusion is that street-sweeping isn’t 100% a scam for SFGov to make money, it’s just mostly a scam. And who’s going to pay for health […]

Japantown Diner Evolution at 1700 Post: Denny’s –> Danny’s –> New Danny’s –> Minny’s –> New Minny’s –> ???

TweetDo I have that right? The record on Yelp ends in 2009: This is all the same place: Perhaps this location is now Ssisso and Dennys/Dannys/Minnys is gone? IDK, but I think the New Minny’s sign is still there I can’t see how New Minny’s is still in operation, so I’ll assume that the mall people […]
