Ya dig? ‘Cause dude’s been trolling that horribly-managed bridge project (just keep scrolling down – down, down, down) for a while now:

(Hey, did you know that that troublesome cable-stayed tower is merely decorative? Pretty much. I’ll tell you, the original, lower-cost “freeway-on-stilts” proposal is looking better and better as the years roll by…)
At first I though this billboard had something to do with the recent ill-starred Salesforce.com Hackathon.
Then I thought it was a beef from a laid-off salesperson.

“Method of exercising a cat
US 5443036 A
A method for inducing cats to exercise consists of directing a beam of invisible light produced by a hand-held laser apparatus onto the floor or wall or other opaque surface in the vicinity of the cat, then moving the laser so as to cause the bright pattern of light to move in an irregular way fascinating to cats, and to any other animal with a chase instinct.”
Isn’t it adorable?
As seen in SF:
Generic soda at Lucky costs about $2 a gallon. Prop E would raise that to about $4.50 a gallon, more than gasoline is these days, not that I care.
First they came for the cigarettes, and I did not speak out—
Because I am not a smoker.
Then they came for the gasoline, and I did not speak out—
Because I don’t spend much on gasoline, usually less than $1000 per year .
Then they came for the sugary soda, and I did not speak out—
Because I don’t drink sugary soda – too sweet.
But if they come for refreshing Diet Cherry Coke, there will be no one left to speak for me. Oh well.

Or rather, it’s Down There, all the way down in Santa Clara, two full counties away from us.
Anyway, this is Intel’s reward for spending millions and millions on the NFL / regulatory agencies / politicians:
Bland, bland, bland…
