Don’t You Wish You Had Your Own State-Approved Smoking Tent, Like Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger Used To Have?

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

I bet you’d love to have your very own smoking tent. One that’s large enough to be seen from outer space, right?

Well then you should envy California Governor Arnold Schwazenegger ’cause this beige smoking tent used to be all his.

As seen from the second floor of Sacramento’s Capitol Building:

Best of all, it was excluded from California’s new anti-smoking laws because, well, just because.

And if there was the occasional flooding in our historic capitol due to all the fake plastic grass that was put down, well, that was all right as well.

This was the bird’s eye view:

Austin, Texas or Austin Alley? You Make The Call

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Is this a scene from Austin Texas or Austin Alley in San Francisco?

Of course the parking spaces out in front of this banal building have the requisite brace of yuppy imports (Subaru, BMW, Mercedes, Acura), but there’s also a couple of pick-em-ups in there too, and Texans love their pickups. Let’s look for more clues.

Mmmm, there’s a Victorian in the background next door, and all the license plates say “California” and there’s that San Francisco-looking AUSTIN sign too – that all adds up to the 415.

But whoever thought it was a good idea to build suburban-style housing/parking like this in San Francisco has clearly made a  huge mistake.

Oh well.
