Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

It’s a different world out there, east of the east bay:

Here’s your cowtown reference.

Here’s your procurement backgrounder, which shows how the better aerial tanker lost.

And here’s the latest at the Bay Area’s giant Air Force Base, which  our area pols sometimes use when they can’t use SFO / OAK…

Never Seen This: UC Police Rousting Homeless at Six-Something AM on Golden Gate Near Hastings Law School

Like I said, I’ve never seen this kind of wake-up call…

Just Throw Your Expended DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID Container Anywhere You Want on the Streets of San Francisco

Monday, March 27th, 2017

IDK, I guess the owner of a diesel vehicle wanted to be able to keep on trucking without visiting a dealership (and without paying potentially hundreds and hundreds(!) for a DEF fill up), but this is a quite minimal effort at disposal here.

As seen just outside O’Reilly’s on Geary:

It’s possible the garbage crew might call the hazmat team on this one, not that this article is so dangerous, but separating the box, breaking it down, and rinsing out the container with water, and then disposing of it all at home, well that was called for here…

(I mean it’s mostly harmless, right? Actually, IDK how you’re supposed to properly dispose of diluted urea dregs. I’d prolly try to get every last drop into my ride.)

Or maybe O’Reilly c/would be required to take back the garbage it sells to you, that’d be another way of avoiding this kind of sitch…

This is What the Fleet of UBER Self-Driving Cars in The Richmond Looks Like

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

So I see one UBER self driver way out there in the Avenues, so no biggee, but here comes another right behind.

Say, maybe if these self driving cars drive all over town, they can memorize the place, the Google’s rides have done down in Mountain View and the way the dinosaurs tested the electrified fences in Jurassic Park.

Maybe…

Hit and Run Driver (People Assume) vs. a Parked BMW in the Richmond

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Pasersby in the Richmond, where the car is king, seemed real pissed off at this one.

The debris trail tells the story – this ride must have been clouted at a pretty good clip and, of course, on the wrong side of the street:

Virginia might be “FOR LOVERS,” But Frisco is for CAR BREAKER INNERS, as This Mission Newcomer Will Soon Discover

Monday, March 13th, 2017

The owner of this ride drove all the way across ‘Muricah, with love, only to arrive en la Mision to go broken into:

Things are different here.

Oh well.

The Most Common Sighting in Nighttime Frisco is a Toyota Prius Going About Without Its Lights Own – WHY WHY WHY?

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Now you see them….

7J7C7592 copy

…and now you don’t:

7J7C7591 copy

IDK, man. The brake lights on Priuses work without any effort on behalf of today’s overtaxed drivers, so why don’t the headlights and taillights work like automatically? I mean the phone(s) inside this ride certainly know when it’s nighttime, so why not the much more expensive car as well?

What’s that, you don’t want Toyota to miss out on “upselling” the “luxury” of automatic headlights?

OK fine. But Prius drivers already need extra help, right? And what with the Lyft and the UBER these days, all those drivers from Modesto and whatnot, they need help too.

Right?
