I’ve seen this hobby in Hawaii and Fun Diego, but never in the 415 / 628 / 650, never in Frisco
SMILES EVERYONE! The United States Olympic Committee is Coming to SF Nov 24th or 25th – A Secret “Private” MeetingNovember 21st, 2014
Smiles everyone, smiles. Why? Because we all need to look our best when the United States Olympic Committee road show beauty contest comes to town on either Monday, November 24th or Tuesday, November 25th, 2014. If we “win,” there’s a good chance that we’ll end up with the 2024 Olympiad.
“The USOC has already vetted LA, and was due in DC Wednesday. San Francisco will be visited early next week.”
And who will meet with Scott Blackmun and the USOC, that get-fresh crew from Colorado Springs? IDK, it’s a secret! And certainly you yourself, Gentle Reader, ARE NOT invited, ’cause it’ll be a “private” meeting. Of course, you’ll be “invited” to pay for any “overages” (typically, they run into the eleven-figure territory) but that will come down the road a bit.
And where will they meet? IDK, it’s a secret! Oh well.
These IOC people could be anywhere around town and/or the bay area, so make sure to smile at any and all tourists you see.
Now here’s the thing about smiles and here’s why democracies just aren’t into the Olympics all that much anymore, here’s an actual demand from the corrupt International Olympic Committee:
This is the kind of greeting the Olympics road show beauty contest people want:
Of course, the USOC isn’t corrupt the way the IOC is, but the question is why we’re even considering hosting the 2024 Olympics in the first place.
Shouldn’t San Franciscans have a vote on this matter? Mmmm…
Shouldn’t smart, skeptical people be invited to this meeting instead of just having the naive boosters who are happy to be on Another Committee? Mmmm…
OMG, Cirque du Soleil’s “Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities” is Awesome – Show Plays Near AT&T Park Until Jan. 18th, 2015November 21st, 2014
Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities is here and everybody loves it, so far:
I mean, find me a negative review, Gentle Reader. I tried to find one. I failed.
You know, I’ve never actually paid to see a Cirque du Soleil show. (They’re all excellent, actually. They’re spectacles, certainly.) Would seeing this show be worth $53 and up to you? IDK. And you might feel like a second-class citizen in some of the cheap seats. Anyway, I have nothing to add to the reviews except to say it’s awesome, if you’re into this kind of thing.

Good News: The SFPD is Hiring Police Cadets! – But, Bad News: The Pay is Just 6.6% More Than the Coming $15 Minimum Wage?!November 21st, 2014
I guess this is the SFPD’s version of a Community Service Officer program?
But the pay starts off at $15.99 per hour?
The thing is that the In-&-Out Burger pays more. And didn’t we just vote in a higher minimum wage?
Can you imagine living in the Bay Area with a part-time job what pays $1300-something per month before taxes? Well, if you’re a rich kid living at home, I could see how you could swing that. Or if you had financial aid as a college student. Otherwise, IDK.
