I See This Flight Every Day – Hawaiian 11 SFO-HNL – Everybody’s Going to Hawaii But Me

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Look for this Airbus 330 just after 9:00 AM, over the Financh, heading west with a little south thrown in – that’s what you can see lately:


Now back in the day, people told me, “Don’t fly Hawaiian.” But geez, zero passenger deaths over the years and decades. Hawaiian is a winner airline and this jet, an Airbus 330-200 widebody, is a winner aircraft – better all around than any stretched-out Boeing 757 narrowbody that, say United, might choose to get you to the 808 State…

They’re Here! – Meet “Boron,” Your New UBER Robot Car Being Tested in Frisco’s Financh

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

No no, no silly names for UBER Technologies, like, IDK, PLATYPUS from the GM Cruise people. Just straight up science, like something out of Breaking Bad:


Now let’s rack out to see the more of this new robot car, seen being driven at California and Sansome yesterday:

The legal way to get back to Union Square would be to cut through an alley and then use Sansome, but oh well…

Our SFMTA is Taking Over More Streets for Its Use – Here’s How Sansome is Going – Wrong-Way SFPD

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

Here’s how the formally one-way Sansome is looking at Broadway these days

And here’s the result – heading north out of the Financh:

The SFPD doesn’t mess with this mess as it can just go north in the southbound lane.

This is another kind of meh SFMTA initiative. It’s not a game-changer and it doesn’t appear that it will ever become any part of any game changer, even when added with other things…

Twenty grand:

And look, another trike on the same block, more or less, just moments later. It’s much cheaper. (And born in Frisco, just like those people who are quite proud to tell you they’re “born and raised” here and whatnot.)

7J7C8374 copy

This Bieberesque couple looked like they were both 14 – I don’t know what any age cutoff might be.

And best of all, the two-stroke GOcar engines are all gone bye bye.

All right, choose your tricycle.

OHHHMMMMMMMM – Area Tech Bro Reaches Zen Level of Electric Unicycle Mastery – OHHHMMMMMMMM

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

I think I was on-campus, you know, down in The Valley, back in aught thirteen when I saw my first post-collegiate tech bro* getting about on an electric unicycle.

Of course now it’s ought sixteen and these things have spread to Frisco’s Financh. But this tech bro is a true master. He’s got his hands in the pockets of his cargo shorts!

A quick jog around a load of boxes and then we’re off, to The Future:

Of course we might be heading the in the wrong direction, on the wrong side of the street, like literally, but nevertheless, we’re off to The Future.

*One time I called a late 30’s tech bro a tech bro and he got all pissed off, saying how he has kids in the SFUSD and so ergo, he couldn’t be a tech bro. But he works at Box! So I’m still thinking he’s a tech bro. I don’t think there’s an age cut-off…
