“Signs we have reached peak-app? Cabbie in SF running 5 dash mounted phones”
Yowzer, what a photo.
All right, your move, SFMTA.
All right, your move, Ed Reiskin.
Or I suppose they’re really called “suction” hydrants:
It looks like this:
Bro* was like a monkey, a tall, lanky monkey. He made it up to this garage door roof with a quickness. I wouldn’t have thought that this would be so easy:
I didn’t see where he went after that, but he was standing on the garage roof when I last caught sight of him. People with desks 20 feet above Geary might have been surprised to see him peering in, if they were working, which I don’t think they were, as this was Labor Day Weekend on the visa side of the compound, not the spycraft side of the compound
Speaking of which, here’s the scene last Saturday at the very same time on the Laguna side of the building – eight people were trying to figure out how best to fix the damage from that fire bomb attack perpetrated by a Chinese national earlier this year:

All right, but then more peds will die – is that what you want? OK fine.
Which Looks More Like a Jail – the New 8 Octavia Condo Building or the Actual San Francisco Jail in SoMA?Monday, September 1st, 2014
…or better B?
Only one of these buildings is a “stunning victory for architectural freedom over bureaucratic stupidity.”
But You Make The Call, Gentle Reader.
In other news, Octavia Boulevard continues to be a failure. What went wrong? What can we do to avoid future mistakes like Octavia Boulevard? IMO, there was waaaay to much input from self-interested millionaires who lived in Hayes Valley.
Believe it or not.
The old pink-tannish boat house at Lake Merced:
All right, stroke, stroke, stroke…
Sam: What regiment was that?
Spence: The 22nd Special Air Service.
Sam: What’s the color of the boathouse at Hereford? [repeats]
Spence: I don’t like your attitude.
Sam: What’s the color of the boathouse -…
Spence: Fuck off!
Sam: What’s – -you got the gun. I’m unarmed. Do something. Go ahead. Do something. DO SOMETHING.
