Forget About “Car Share” – What You Need to Do is Rent a Ferrari from Club Sportiva – An “Experience Beyond Ownership”

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Here’s a Club Sportiva delivery back in the day, on Market Street:

An “experience beyond ownership,” whatever that meant.

Now here’s another on 19th Avenue, just recently:

So what, your wife spends $1000-something bucks to have two bros deliver a Lambo to your office on a Friday afternoon and then you’ll be a big macher for the weekend?

I’ll tell you, this business makes no sense in Frisco.

A StreetsBlog Felony, an “Urbanist’s” Nightmare: SF Rec and Park Jungle Gym Teaches Kids to Love SUV’s

Monday, December 1st, 2014

It took me a while to figure this one out. OK, here’s the Children’s Quarter, aka the Koret something-or-other, in Golden Gate Park:

See? It’s a Jeep SUV, complete with a steering wheel, horn button, headlights, trademark grill and a three-on-the-tree gear shift. You could actually use this thing to begin to teach somebody how to drive.

Oh, how I weep! You see, instead, this should be a bicycle simulator, complete with handlebars and Shimano Alivio shifters, right man?

I hope nobody from Park Slope ever sees this, man…

The Owner of This Car Used to Feed Feral Cats in Golden Gate Park – Huge Bags of Food on JFK Drive

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

I don’t know if she’s still doing this.

Another woman had a car with a bumper sticker showing two hunters aiming at / shooting each other – that was her solution to hunting.

Anyway, they’d stop and then walk up to the nearest cover to dispense cat food.

The bird lovers did not / do not approve…

The SFMTA’s Crazy Traffic Signals at Fell and Shrader in the Western Addition, Just North of the Panhandle

Friday, November 14th, 2014

The SFMTA makes all kinds of mistakes all the time, but it’s afraid to admit that it ever might have made a mistake ever, oh well.

Check out the newish light signals at Fell and Shrader:

7J7C7790 copy

(Filmed in Nike-Vision, except this woman is a real person who lives in the area and just happened to be passing through – quite unacceptable to those who reside in Niketown.)

So I understand the red bike and the upraised hand signal – so far so good.

And I understand the next phase, the I-do-what-I-want phase:

And then there’s this:

7J7C7795 copy

And this:

7J7C7796 copy

And then this:

7J7C7797 copy

And then back to all-red.

So now I understand what the SFMTA means, but I needed to study the lights.

IMO, the SFMTA should be focused on safety instead of ideology. IMO, the SFMTA should strive to keep things simple. IMO, the SFMTA should factor human nature into into its signal schemes. For example, this woman here entered into the intersection way late and had to rely upon the driver seeing her. Is the SFMTA at all curious as to why people might be confused by this unique-in-the-world intersection with its current signal setup? Not at all.

Oh well.
