TweetIt looks like this, with about 20 people queuing up about 20 minutes before the event begins: Would SFGov / Rec and Park consider these fliers “illegal?” Yep, they would. Anyway, that’s what it looked like.
TweetGet your 2015 coyote update from Hoodline. Coyotes are small, brownish, wild dogs, basically. They run with their non-bushy tails held down. Thusly, as seen on JFK Drive near the Bison Paddock, shortly before Fish and Game plumb blew this critter away, with a rifle: Lots of people don’t notice them, cause they hide most […]

TweetHere’s the sitch. But you can’t actually see the bus driver run the red in this video: Is there an all-red phase in the signal timing of this intersection? I assume so, but I don’t know. The yellow line shown is about 200 feet long. It’s possible that a MUNI bus could enter the intersection […]

TweetCan you even see Golden Gate Park’s “world-class” Alvord Lake on a map? I suppose, but it’s smaller than most ponds IRL.

TweetIn my thoughts I have seen, Rings of smoke through the trees, but IRL I seen RPD making mad smoke by burning stuff in a wooded area east of the Conservatory of Flowers: From this chimney: See? So, RPD burns stuff in Golden Gate Park? Didn’t know that.
TweetOur four-star Yelp-rated Prayer Book Cross doesn’t really belong on public land. Here’s a repost from 2009. I haven’t kept up on things, but I don’t think much has changed. It’ll take somebody to sue SFGov to have a chance to change this situation, the way things happened with the big cross atop Mt. Davidson. Just look […]

TweetPer this bit on SocketSite, SFGov thinks it has 50 “failing” playgrounds. Does that means that all of them get an “F” grade, that they’re all basically worthless? For instance, let’s take a look at the Panhandle Playground. It has 4.5 Yelp stars. Isn’t that a pretty high rating for a “failing” anything? If you polled […]
TweetWhen President Barack Obama was a more popular, he made the grade in Golden Gate Park: It was a thing. But now, he’s been replaced. As seen in December 2014: Oh well.

Tweet1. The Apology. Normally I’d just do a retweet but I’ve been blocked from doing just that, so here’s a back-and-forth on the recent “This isn’t Oakland” bit: Now actually, in defense of The Nevius, I think he was merely channeling what the SFPD brass had to say, as Nevius is wont to do, about […]
