The Illegal Fire Pits of Ocean Beach

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

These can be found right next to the legal fire pits of Ocean Beach. I guess people feel there aren’t enough.

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

It used to be like this:

But now it’s like this:

FBOW, most of the lawns are gone, paved over long ago to make room for more car parking…

One searches and one finds a bit on Hoodline to explain the mystery.

This is What the Fleet of UBER Self-Driving Cars in The Richmond Looks Like

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

So I see one UBER self driver way out there in the Avenues, so no biggee, but here comes another right behind.

Say, maybe if these self driving cars drive all over town, they can memorize the place, the Google’s rides have done down in Mountain View and the way the dinosaurs tested the electrified fences in Jurassic Park.

Frisco’s PUC Shows how a Reliable Tap Water Supply is Better than a Super Reliable Tap Water Supply

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

This ad here has been my white whale – I’ve caught glimpses of it all over town the past few weeks, but here’s my first view head on.

Everywhere.

C-town, Western A, SoMA, the Richmond, Bush Pine corridor for starters.

The biggest issue is where do all these out of towners park their full-sized Ford, Chevy, GMC or Dodge Ram pickups. They struggle to park legally is what I’m saying.

Anyway, I’ve never seen it like this, in all my years…

Hit and Run Driver (People Assume) vs. a Parked BMW in the Richmond

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Pasersby in the Richmond, where the car is king, seemed real pissed off at this one.

The debris trail tells the story – this ride must have been clouted at a pretty good clip and, of course, on the wrong side of the street:
