Twitterloin? TWITTERLOIN! – This Mural Proves It

Monday, October 24th, 2016

So this is Twitter mural in the ‘Loin, so that gives us The Twitterloin, a phrase endorsed by our East Coast Media Elites:


Ironically, a good portion of the Tworkforce at the Twitter would have prefered being HQ’ed down in nearby Brisbane, CA.

Ironically, Twitter would’ve have moved into that building at 10th and Market anyway, without any enterprise zone tax incentives.

A Tale of Two Gas Stations, One Charging 27% per Gallon More Than the Other at the Same Location, Market and Castro – “RC” v. Chevron

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

You’ve tried the soda, now try some gasoline:

America – what a country!

Frisco Resorts to “Evaporative Coolers” During Brief Heat Wave

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Do these things work well in the 415? IDK.


My dad called these things swamp coolers.

Anyway, once you’ve set it up with a gallon or so of water, throw the box out your window onto the sidewalks of Fell Street – I’m sure somebody will come by to pick it up…

The Signage Where Lobos Creek Drains onto Baker Beach Says What Now? – Something About Water Quality?

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

FIrst of all, I think our Feds could do a better job with signage here, at Baker Beach:


And second of all, I think the sign should say that this water is generally OK for kids to play in/around, except for times after it’s been raining. I think.

And there’s this:

San Francisco and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which has jurisdiction over Baker Beach, are working with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on monitoring studies in an attempt to locate the source of the coliform, fecal coliform and enterococci detected where Lobos Creek meets the ocean. “It’s a spring-fed creek. We don’t know what’s causing it,” said Michael Kellogg, the supervising biologist for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. “Runoff is not an issue at Lobos Creek, which is percolating ground water.”

Anyway, this is the sign I can remember seeing, but it’s gone now…

SFMTA “Beautification” Effort Fails at Great Highway and Kirkham – Why Not Paint What Should be Red Curbs Red?

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

The street triangles of the Outside Lands become an issue for the SFPD:


You see, the problem here is that there isn’t any church around to persuade the SFMTA about how it’s OK to park next to a median, oh well…

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Now, there are bigger classical domes in the Old World, sure. And there are bigger domes in the New World, but they isn’t classical, they’re like football stadia ‘n stuff.

So does that mean it’s taller than the U.S. Capitol Building? Yes it does. On purpose.

If you want to see something gothicker and bigger, you’ll have to head to Europe.

That’s your San Francisco City Hall
