Note human, for scale:

One assumes it might have something to do with this, Contract 2419J?

Boy, Sunday Streets Aint What It Used To Be

Monday, September 14th, 2015

Oh, I have apologized properly yet?

All right, I’ll say “sorry” again.

I couldn’t really tell where it started and where it ended yesterday – all number of blocks were blocked off for one reason or another. Hey, what if Sunday Streets changed the map and just used up a single street? There’s an idea.

Hey now, Airbnb was there, trying to head off Prop F with all its billions:

(I think the logo looks better upside down.)

Here’s what’s going to happen – Prop F is going to pass, and then life will go on, and you’ll still be able to Airbnb, either as a tourist or as a room letter.

And then you’ll look back and say to yourself, you’ll say, “Boy, Airbnbing aint what it used to be…”

The Anatomy of the Great SFPD SENIOR CITIZEN FACILITY Speed Trap on Fulton

Friday, September 11th, 2015

Here it is, looking west at around 37th Avenue:

And here’s what you should be looking at – the aging SFPD SUV with radar on the left, the 30 MPH speed limit sign in the middle, and the SPEED LIMIT 25 MPH / SENIOR CITIZEN FACILITY signs on the right:

Read all about it here, courtesy of a disgruntled Prius driver what got a ticket last year, when the speed limit zones on this stretch of Fulton went 35-25-35. As you can see, these days it goes 30-25-30, but the concept’s the same.

One would think SFGov would want to put in a few more traffic signals in this area, but one would be wrong.

Anyway, here’s the perspective from inside a police car via Stanley Roberts of People Behaving Badly fame: Fulton 500 Speedway.

But it shouldn’t be, IMO:

Oh, what’s that, MUNI – you’re didn’t offer a truck diet to go along with your “road diet?”

How surprising?

Barely Legal: Turning Left Across Double Yellow Lines on Busy Masonic to Park Your Car – DUDE, IS THIS A GOOD IDEA?

Friday, August 14th, 2015

Oh Lord:

Not only did this maneuver block the fast lane of northbound Masonic for a while, it also resulted in squealing brakes / tires from inattentive drivers headed south.

IF you timed this right, during certain parts of the day or night, then this might be OK.

But the correct way to park in the garage of one the Great Estates of this part of Masonic is to GO AROUND THE FUCKING LUCKY to end up heading south on Masonic from the terminus of this part of McAllister.


I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

All these items espied near Fulton tell quite a story.

A sad story.

The junkie who breaks into your car at night doesn’t really want most of your stuff. The junkie can’t use most of it, so it gets tossed. Value = 0. So why does the junkie take it? This sitch isn’t good for you and it’s not good for the junkie.

Oh well.

Old People, They’re Just Like Us! – Taking the 21 Hayes to a Safeway in the Inner Richmond Near Golden Gate Park – In 1938

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Here it is, a crop from your Western Neighborhoods Project, the OutsideLands.Org

Of course, the Safeway is now a Lifestyle Store, and it’s moved a few blocks out, and the 21 Hayes is a bus line now, and the 21H doesn’t make it all the way out to 6th Avenue no mo, but even so, this is pretty close, IMO.
