I think I would have gone with LOST rather than STOLEN!
But that’s just me.
Head on up to our Randall Museum to see other outside of the box / 20-sided truncated icosahedron ideas on earthquake safety.
From the source, the “Barier” people:
“Is your present house OK? Is it strong enough to endure a great earthquake or flood to be caused by global warming? Barier offers a safe, living space, a multi-functional, elegant and playful space, emphasizing each individual personality.
Barier is a soccer ball-shaped house developed by us (international patent pending). A soccer ball with which you played in your childhood gets bigger like a dream ball and appears as a place to live in. It floats on the sea and can be a rescue ship. We believe it will be a gift to those who never give up a dream.”
“One issue that I am hopeful someone will take up is the claim by the Recreation and Parks Department’s Director Phil Ginsburg that “We want as much open space as possible, but we also need to have a way to care for it.” That was his quote in reference to why the City’s Recreation and Parks Department is unwilling to accept the donation of the park built in front of the new Rincon Green Apartments at 333 Harrison Street. Read the article here (hopefully, the shared full article will appear: http://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/Creating-new-park-no-picnic-for-broke-city-4490422.php?t=27ec6d327d3f99889e
“This is a lie from Phil Ginsburg and it should infuriate everyone who lives in the Rincon neighborhood or nearby. Why do I say it is a lie?”
Hey, speaking of Gavin Newsom lackey Phil Ginsburg, a few years back he had a total boner for this nearby project at Justin Herman and yet NOBODY HAS EVER USED IT EXCEPT FOR OCCUPY SF FOR A FEW MONTHS.
Gavin Newsom lackey Phil Ginsburg must be aware, I mean he’s not stupid, that this bocce thing was/is a big fat waste, but he’s afraid to acknowledge this because then he’d have to get a job in the real world.
This is it, the affair of the year.

But for some reason, former Mayor Gavin Newsom moved Heaven and Earth to get this useless monument to Eurocentrism installed before he left office.
And then nobody used it so Occupy took it over.
And then it got restored.
Like a year ago.
And nobody’s used it since.
Hula Hoop girl, fence keeping Occupiers out of OccupySF, giant ornamental bocce ball, and “THIS IS NOT A DEMOCRACY.”

And I think the military dude used to be in S.L.U.G.
It all ties together. (We’re through the looking-glass, people!)
You see, the Occupiers put their tents on the bocce court grass last year. So that killed the turf.
This was the scene yesterday as the new turf came in:

All that’s left to do is clean up the Bradley Manning stickers and then, once again, San Francisco’s at-risk Rich White People will have a place to keep busy and stay out of trouble.
You know, there was talk of putting in a playground here, you know, for kids, but RWP didn’t like that idea so much.
