A Tale of Two Gas Stations, One Charging 27% per Gallon More Than the Other at the Same Location, Market and Castro – “RC” v. ChevronMonday, October 3rd, 2016
You’ve tried the soda, now try some gasoline:
Much cheaper than the Chevron across the street, unless you’re using a credit card, in which case you’re paying the same.
America – what a country!
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…
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…
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
You have many legal choices here, heading west at Baker – you can go on the bike path or you can go on the left side of the left lane of Fell, or you can go on the right side of the right lane of Fell, or (assuming you’re feeling especially vigorous and can keep up with Frisco’s version of a freeway even though it’s going uphill in this area) you can TAKE THE LANE:
I’ve seen people doing all of these things, but 99% of the time, ppl take the bike path, as they should. And this especially applies to rental bike tourists, who generally don’t seem to be aware of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Bicycle Path. Hence the wayfinding sign TO PANHANDLE PATH (even though it’s actually pointing exactly AT the path, oh well.
But these signs are kind of small, so I’ll still expect to see tourists on Fell Street oh well. And then on the return trip to their Union Square or Twitterloin hotels, I’ll still expect others to come east on the bike path and then go the wrong way on Fell for a couple blocks until they give up swimming upstream at Divisadero – that’s where the helmetless blond Euros with the 12 weeks of annual vacay generally seem to lose their religion to go the wrong way on, as stated, Frisco’s version of a freeway, oh well…
So what’s happening here?
Are we not going to have SFMTA taxicabs in 2024?
Oh, we will, but they won’t ever injure anybody ever, because…?
VZ2024 is impossible, if only because SFMTA-regulated taxicab accidents will continue to occur in the future. So even something like Vision Zero SFMTA Vehicles 2024 is impossible.
To suggest that there’s even a remote chance of this fantasy coming true is to seriously seriously underestimate the problem..
