Artemis Racing Lawyers Up: Check Out This Official Statement Coming From a Sailor

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

This is from yesterday, May 13, 2013:

Statement from Nathan OutteridgeThe description of the accident in the Newcastle Herald while quoting my father is not correct and does not reflect the facts…”

And which description was that?

“Nathan told me [the turn] didn’t seem any different to any other occasion. The bow dug in a little bit but he said that’s not unusual. The next thing he heard a cracking noise and the boat went on its side. Before it capsized it snapped in half, Nathan described it as folding like a taco shell.”

So last week  he tells his dad something and then this week, after Artemis Racing lawyers up, he says…

OK fine.

Hey, what’s this? From back in 2012:

In preparation for sailing the Artemis Racing AC72, the team was conducting valuable structural tests afloat earlier yesterday when damage was incurred to the front beam of the catamaran. The AC72 has been hauled out of the water and the design team, led by Principal Designer Juan Kouyoumidjian, is on site to evaluate the damage. “

There’s Way More Poo in Justin Herman Plaza Now Than During the Height of OccupySF – Why Is That?

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Horses, that’s why. Police horses, that is.

JHP poo, tourists, the Embarcadero, and Ferry Building. Welcome to San Francisco!

Perhaps the super-whiny whiners in the the area, such as Boston Properties* and whoever, will start writing sneaky letters to SFGov about how they’re going to sue, sue, sue over horse poo now?

Perhaps.

So, now that OccupySF is over, area property owners are happy? Really? Mmmm.

And who was it, was it Hawaiian Airlines or Disney what was demanding the end of OccupySF? Maybe I’ll look into that and see how they feel about Occupy. [Cough, boycott, cough.]

On It Goes…

*Owner of Embarcadero Center or someplace. (Now isn’t that a great name for a San Francisco company?) 

It Takes a Village (or the SFPD) to Bust a Man Who Parks His Love Seat-Equipped Minivan on Fell

Friday, August 19th, 2011

An entire hippie drum circle was riveted on this scene in the Golden Gate park Panhandle a while back.

Note love seat on the roof of the minivan – it was there for about a week.

Note bowling ball imprint on windshield.

Note how many cops it took to get this man and his friend on their way:

Appeared to be a lot of drama going on.

Anyway, there’s a lot of material here, so just make up your own story…

The Best Photos and Videos from the Great 2010 Valentines Day Pillow Fight

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Can you make sense of this scene at San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza near the Embarcadero Ferry Building? (Perhaps a black-and-white, slo-mo Raging Bull-style video or this official 1080p will help.)

It was the Yelp-rated Great Valentine’s Day Pillow Fight of February 14th, 2010! This joint went down yesterday despite a threatened crackdown from San Francisco’s Park Rangers and an ominous warning from San Francisco Director of Public Health Mitchell Katz - he fretted about the risk of corneal abrasions, penetrating injuries, and even orbital fractures.” Captain Bringdown, M.D. documented 17 injuries from last year that were serious enough to require medical attention at emergency rooms. Hope 2010 was safer.
