They also sell real down.

Anyway, I’m surprised to see that this outfit is still open these days.

All right, let’s hear from the haters

SFMTA Ad for “EMPOWERWORK.org” – If You Work in the White House, This Would be a Good Place to Contact – Otherwise, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

So what do we have here, a phone number and a website? Well, that aint much, I’ve got that.

But what I don’t have is my very own SFMTA bus stop* ad in the 94117.

I’m stumped, but here’s a clue.

In closing, 🤔.

*This one’s on Hayes. I’d say that it’s a necessary one, cause it’s close to Masonic. What’s not necessary is the next stop, which is just nine freaking seconds away at the other end of this short block. It’s just one more giant barnacle on the hull of SS MUNI.

Spooky: Our Samuels Clock on Market Might be Working Again

I mean, I looked up and thought, “That might be the correct time.”

See?

There have been efforts in the past to get this thing running of course.

I’ll check again sometime…

Frisco’s “SMART WATER” – Our SFPUC has a Lot of Gumption with This New Ad Campaign – “Hella?”

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

Here’s the latest:

1. So how “amazing” is the water we take from Hetch Hetchy / Yosemite area? Well I think it’s fine, but check this oot, eh?

water-copy

So what are we, like #11 in population but #33 in water quality? Hmmm. Is that really so amazing?

2. The groundwater the SFPUC is hella* excited to add to your water (maybe – it depends on where you live in Frisco) is of lower quality than what we steal from the baby Yosemite Valley we flooded in order to steal from.

3. So to conclude, you can look forward to higher water prices (raising at a rate much higher than inflation) along with lower water quality in the coming years.

IOW, you’d prefer to get your water “smart” as opposed to “hella smart.”

In closing, hella hella hella…

“Retired” Chronicle Writer CW Nevius is Now a Part Time Sports Writer in Santa Rosa – Plus He’s Playing the Marsh

Monday, March 13th, 2017

You can take the boy out of the suburbs but you can’t take the suburbs out of the boy, one assumes.

Anyway, that’s the new news – he’ll be a once-a-week writer a way up there.

And here’s the old news – his one man show at the Marsh

“ARE YOU GOING TO BE FOR US OR AGAINST US?” by Chuck Nevius
In 1980, I arrived at the San Francisco Chronicle to cover the Oakland Raiders. I had only been to California once in my life (when I was 12 years old), didn’t know a soul in San Francisco, and was scared to death that I wouldn’t be up to covering the “Hell’s Angels of the NFL.” My previous experience was writing for the SECOND-largest paper in Colorado Springs, and four years before that I was a high school English teacher. What followed was a tempestuous, and eventually miraculous, season that seemed like it would change everything. And then life happened.”

Of course, since he moved to Cali, he’s lived mostly in the ‘burbs, way out east. NTTAWWT, but he sort of omits that part of his bio. Anyway, here’s the venue:

How Wrong is Oakland Warriors Co-Owner Peter Guber About the “Certainty” of “E-Sports” Video Gaming Becoming “an Olympic Sport in 2020?” – VERY

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Here you go:

Gaming revolution: Millennials make e-sports billion-dollar business By Susan Slusser, San Francisco Chronicle February 1, 2017

And here’s the problem:

“Let me say something very provocative — I think there is a high certainty e-sports will be an Olympic sport in 2020.”

Well first of all, when did video games become a “sport?” Which of course is:

an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.

Oh so you think video games can fit in there? What about chess then? Let me say something very provocative, Gentle Reader – I think there is a high certainty chess will be an Olympic sport in 2020. That’s the ticket.

And second of all, look for any mention of any video games at all here:

Following the 2012 Games, the IOC assessed the 26 sports held in London, with the remit of selecting 25 ‘core’ sports to join new entrants golf and rugby sevens at the 2020 Games. In effect, this would involve the dropping of one sport from the 2016 Games program. This would leave a single vacancy in the 2020 Games program, which the IOC would seek to fill from a shortlist containing seven unrepresented sports and the removed sport. On 12 February 2013, IOC leaders voted to drop wrestling from the Olympic program, a surprise decision that removed one of the oldest Olympic sports from the 2020 Games. Wrestling, which combines freestyle and Greco-Roman events, goes back to the inaugural modern Olympics in Athens in 1896,[26] and even further to the Ancient Olympic Games. The decision to drop wrestling was opposed in many countries and by their NOCs.[27][28][29][30] Wrestling therefore joined other sports in a short list applying for inclusion in the 2020 Games. On 29 May 2013, it was announced that three sports made the final shortlist; squash, baseball/softball, and wrestling.[31] Five other sports (karate, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding, and wushu) were excluded from consideration at this point.[32] On 8 September 2013, at the 125th IOC Session, the IOC selected wrestling to be included in the Olympic program for 2020 and 2024. Wrestling secured 49 votes, while baseball/softball secured 24 votes and squash got 22 votes.[33]

So what’s up with that?

And note that the Guber didn’t say by 2020, he said “in 2020.” So I don’t see how it’s even remotely possible that there’s a “certainty” that “E-Sports” video gaming will somehow become “an Olympic sport in 2020.”
