The Outer Richmond District: Where Every Day is Christmas and Every Night is New Year’s Eve – Parking on the “Lawn”

Monday, July 7th, 2014

When SFGov hasn’t the will to enforce the laws and regs it enacts and you ask them about it, a  govt rep will start talking  about “complaint-driven” enforcement.

And that means no enforcement at all.

So feel free to pave over your front yard and then paint your brand-new parking spaces in alternating red and green, you know, to celebrate, Christmas-style:

(Actually, the most exciting time in the Outer Richmond is the evening of the Fourth of July and the morning of the Fifth of July, what with the illegal fireworks and all…)

Oh Outer Richmond:

You’ve got the biggest heart
Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me
Every day is Christmas, and every night is New Year’s Eve
Will you keep on loving me
Will you keep on, will you keep on
Bringing out the best in me?

What’s that, it’s chalk and it’ll just wash off?

I don’t think that’s how things work in this town.

In this town, the City Attorney’s Office just might go after you…

The Google Shopping Express Car, Complete with Antlers – Add It to the List of Google Vehicles

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

This is a Google Shopping Express car, complete with antlers, seen in the 94117 during Christmastime 2013

Now enjoy a trip down memory lane:

Well, here it is, the current generation Google Maps Car. (A Subaru, judging by the Pleiades icon on the nose – for some reason, Google stripped the badges from the rear of these cars.) Are there cameras and SICK laser range finders and WiFi detectors and whatnot on top of this Subie? Who knows…

And here’s what these rides looked like before they got wrapped:

And this was the first generation Map Car, seen getting busted by the Federal popo in the Presidio.

(I’ve heard from four people who suppor contradictory stories (so that’s four people promoting two completely different tales) on why this particular Googler got busted, or not busted as the case may be. Oh well. Did the Presidio Trust tell the Google to get a permit? And did Google ignore that request? Don’t know.)

And the Google Bikes:

And the Google office:

And the Google Kitchen – it’s just like a 7-11 except shoplifting is encouraged:

And here’s the concomitant G-Toilet – it costs $700, it has over 20 buttons for its full operation, it’s made in Japan:

So that’s Google’s world.
