MISSION: A Double-Decker Bus Driver Stares Into the Sun – We Hates It, We Hates It Forever!

Monday, November 25th, 2013

The Sun that is.

The way some of our streets are lined up, sometimes you end up staring right into El Sol, particularly if you’re driving west in October during the Evening Drive on a rare cloudless day

The Sidewalk Owls of the Bay Area – This Tiny Western Screech Owl Lives Just Above Your Heads – A Great Photo

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Another great shot from San Francisco nature photographer David Cruz.

“A pair of little owls (Western Screech Owl) were in a hole in a live oak tree that hangs over a quiet street in the SF Bay Area. Very cool seeing them in a quiet urban situation, cars drove right under the hollow branch at a steady residential pace. Shortly after sunset, one owl stood near the edge for a moment before flying away,  allowing me to photograph it. “

The Origami Toyotas of the Western Addition – 1982 Celica Uses Camouflaged Eyes to Escape Larger Predators

Monday, December 6th, 2010

This 1982-or-later Toyota Celica has, not wholly unlike the foureye butterflyfish, camouflaged eyes to fool larger vehicles into attacking from the rear.

That’s the way this relatively small car has survived the mean streets of San Francisco for almost three decades:

Look forward to the next fish car from Japan.

How Can You Say No to Wikipedia Founder Jimmy Wales? Just Try It! Try Looking Into His Eyes and Then Saying No

Monday, November 15th, 2010

OMG, I can’t stand it. Every time I go to the Wiki, I see the outlaw Jimmy Wales and it freaks me out. The eyes, the eyes!

Ohhh, ohhhhhhhh!

All right, here take $50, Jimbo.

To speak is a sin/ you look first then stare:

Or, in other words, from TroyMcClureSF:

“Jimmy Wales’ eyes reach further and further into my soul every year.”

Indeed.

What’s that? Meet for drinks at your place later, Jimmy? Well, my boyfriend wouldn’t really…oh, oh really? Mmmm, oh O.K. 9:00 PM is fine Jimmy, whatever you say.

All right, here, take another $100, just make it stop.

Make it stop!

Las palabras del Wiki:

“I got a lot of funny looks ten years ago when I started talking to people about Wikipedia.

Let’s just say some people were skeptical of the notion that volunteers from all across the world could come together to create a remarkable pool of human knowledge – all for the simple purpose of sharing.

No ads. No agenda. No strings attached.

A decade after its founding, nearly 400 million people use Wikipedia and its sister sites every month – almost a third of the Internet-connected world.

It is the 5th most popular website in the world – but Wikipedia isn’t anything like a commercial website. It is a community creation, written by volunteers making one entry at a time. You are part of our community. And I’m writing today to ask you to protect and sustain Wikipedia.

Together, we can keep it free of charge and free of advertising. We can keep it open – you can use the information in Wikipedia any way you want. We can keep it growing – spreading knowledge everywhere, and inviting participation from everyone.

Each year at this time, we reach out to ask you and others all across the Wikimedia community to help sustain our joint enterprise with a modest donation of $20, $35, $50 or more.

If you value Wikipedia as a source of information – and a source of inspiration – I hope you’ll choose to act right now.

All the best,

Jimmy Wales

Founder, Wikipedia

P.S. Wikipedia is about the power of people like us to do extraordinary things. People like us write Wikipedia, one word at a time. People like us fund it, one donation at a time. It’s proof of our collective potential to change the world.”

Well actually, make that Halloween in July, ’cause that’s when these giant skull novelties went on sale at Costco Warehouse 144 in the SoMA.

Christmas comes to Costco, as Scott James points out today, in August. Like clockwork.
