YOU LOOK GOOD: MUNI Police Thought Bubble

October 21st, 2016

This is how our SFMTA does things:


For better or worse…

I See This Flight Every Day – Hawaiian 11 SFO-HNL – Everybody’s Going to Hawaii But Me

October 21st, 2016

Look for this Airbus 330 just after 9:00 AM, over the Financh, heading west with a little south thrown in – that’s what you can see lately:


Now back in the day, people told me, “Don’t fly Hawaiian.” But geez, zero passenger deaths over the years and decades. Hawaiian is a winner airline and this jet, an Airbus 330-200 widebody, is a winner aircraft – better all around than any stretched out Boeing 757 narrowbody that, say United, might choose to get you to the 808 State…

SFMTA Update: “MUNI Glossier” – Beauty Advice from Our Substandard Transit Agency

October 21st, 2016

So much to unpack here:


So I guess MUNI (ALL CAPS all the time – it’s your brand, MUNI. Own it.) has wanted to make more money by using a “wrap” around the whole bus for advertising. But then you, the Gentle Rider (and me too, sometimes), can’t even tell it’s a MUNI bus. So now we have the MUNI logo ON the wrap? So we get, MUNI Glossier. (Man, who wouldn’t want a glossier MUNI, all shiny ‘n stuff!)


-Hybrid Electric actually means Hybrid Diesel, sry.

-“SKIN FIRST. MAKEUP SECOND?” Oh, so that’s what I’ve been doing wrong all these years! Thanks, MUNI!

-QUERY: “Excuse please, large American man. I am new to your country. What mean, ‘Boy Brow grooming?'” ANSWER: “Sorry, I can’t help you there.”

And of course, this bus was delayed due to all the passengers what didn’t pay for their rides, ala CW Nevius. I’ve never seen the MUNI Police not catch ppl – every time they look for cheats, they find them, it seems.

Poor MUNI!

Oh, How the Locals Will Gape at Your Ferrari as You Parade It Through Union Square – Giant Windows, Mirror Finish

October 21st, 2016

Here’s the back of the flatbed truck hauling your new/newish Ferrari on Geary to your crib, which I’m guessing is in Pac Heights.

Now, I get why the tow truck is enclosed, but I don’t get the mirror finish and the giant picture windows:


So this is a little cheesy, non?




Bye bye, Ferrari…

Absurdly-Written Flyer from Our SFPUC that Converts You to CleanPowerSF – “Competitive” Rates?

October 20th, 2016

Well, here’s the news:


 has the deets on this option.

“Competitive” means more expensive, right? Maybe not now, but next year, right?

Not that PG&E is so great…


…but I don’t think our PUC should be so proud of the low opt-out rate for its new program.

Anyway, just by doing nothing, you, the SFPUC customer, are “combating” global climate change. OTOH, if you opt out for the PG&E you’ve had for decades, well, you’re a horrible monster.

That’s the update.

Yay, trikes!

Pale Male, West Coast? This Hawk Sure Seems to Like Hanging About the Transamerica Pyramid

Flying about and perching up there, way up high, like Pale Male of New Yawk City:

The Unauthorized “Soft-Hit” Posts that Our SFMTA Decided to Leave Up, Which is Fair Enough – On JFK Drive

October 19th, 2016

All the deets are here, on Hoodline.

So instead of cheating a bit on the turn and putting their right wheels on or over the buffer zone, drivers will need to stay in the lane and make a lower radius turn:


One assumes the SFFD / SFPD Bomb Squad knows enough to just run them over if need be.

Seems mostly harmless…
