Here it is:
I suppose it’s OK for the DPW to lecture me about bike/ ped safety. But hey, DPW, would you, in turn, want to listen to me about the safety of your operations, about a culture of safety for your employees? Oh, no, not really?
Getting the Feeling that the People Fixing Our Firebombed Chinese Consulate Doorway DON’T Know What They’re DoingWednesday, September 17th, 2014
(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?
Speaking of ladders above this doorway, one time the SFPD wanted to get above this doorway to rescue a woman who had fallen on a small balcony – she had a broken leg. The people at the consulate told the cops to get bent so they had to call the SFFD to use a ladder to get to the woman to take her to SFGH. That wasn’t very neighborly, Chinese Consulate.
At 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
US 5443036 A
A method for inducing cats to exercise consists of directing a beam of invisible light produced by a hand-held laser apparatus onto the floor or wall or other opaque surface in the vicinity of the cat, then moving the laser so as to cause the bright pattern of light to move in an irregular way fascinating to cats, and to any other animal with a chase instinct.”
Isn’t it adorable?
Just an update on this post.
Labor Day 2014:
You know, if Kink leaves us, then somebody else will use that building for something, so no biggee, right?
All right, play us out, Charlie Daniels:
From The Sound up in Long Island
Out to San Francisco Bay
And everything that’s in between them is our own
And we may have done a little bit
Of fightin’ amongst ourselves
But you outside people best leave us alone
‘Cause we’ll all stick together
And you can take that to the bank
That’s the cowboys and the hippies
And the rebels and the yanks
First, it was all like this, with the Stars and Stripes and the Bear Flag flying over the Kink.Com Armory, you know, along with a couple other flags, like San Francisco’s very own Screaming Chicken and a seasonal one, like a Rainbow Flag for Gay Pride Month and a French tricolour for Bastille Day, that kind of thing.
This has been the case for years and years:
But now, having to do with the spread of infectious disease, Kink.Com is extremely pissed off at certain governmental entities and is therefore threatening to move away.
The proof of that is this – those are black, K-for-Kink flags on the left there:
I was trying to say the same thing here but ppl didn’t believe me, so now you’ve got this new shot of the four current flags plus a Google Maps shot from a few months back..
My work is done here.
(And Kink, why not just move to Nevada if you want to move to Nevada?)
