Forget About That Blue and Gold Dress: Do You See Two Cats or a Cat and a Pig?

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014


Now myself, I don’t care about the slow orbits this morning over the Castro, Western Addition, and the Haights.

But other people, they care about the white chopper with the blue tail.

OMG, from Ukraine with Love, It’s a Nuclear-Capable Soviet Tu-95 Bear Bomber on eBay! Just $3 Mil. – Or “Buy It Now” for $5 Mil.

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Here’s the news of the day:

Check out TU-95MS – Soviet Bomber, yours for $5,000,000 (plus shipping)  via @eBay Kyle Mizokami Matthew Doye ‏@MatthewDoye

Basically, the Tu-95 is the Soviet version of Boeing’s iconic B-52 bomber, except it has turboprops (instead of jet engines)and it’s a narrowbody, you know, for speed.

One wonders why our Ukrainian comrades don’t offer to just fly the thing to the highest bidder. Oh, what, it’s not in flying condition? Uh oh.

Anyway, have at it, buy it and see just how big of a drain this обтяжливе майно (l’oliphant blanc) will be on your finances.

I’ll tell you, San Francisco Chronicle writer CW Nevius has been fretting about these critters for a while now. And yet it’s always dogs that be biting and killing people, not no coyotes.
