Here’s What Happens to Your Mylar Helium Balloons: They Fly to Middle Farallon Island and Mess with the Sea LionsMonday, December 30th, 2013
Perhaps from a Raider’s game, or a black celebration:

Get all the deets on westernmost San Francisco from “Notes from Smellephant Island – The adventures of a wayward biologist living with seals on the Farallon Islands”
Here’s the scene in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle (which I argue is a part of Golden Gate Park for the same reason that the Idaho, Oklahoma, and Florida panhandles are a part of their respective states. But anywho…)
Can you see the Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) people having an exclusive party complete with vests and ornamental hats / helmets?

And I thought, wow, I can see some writing on the balloons, so one of them must have “logistics” written on it, and I was proven correct. It’s the yellow one, I think.
I don’t know, in my opinion NERT is too involved with local politics.
Oh yeah, and I don’t like the word “neighborhood” in there – sounds a bit NIMBY to me.
I’ll just say that this scene would look less comical if it didn’t have the yellow police tape in there to keep out, who, the nearby homeless people or the hippies?
Anyway, carry on, NERT.
