Diesel too:

You know, I can’t say WHY we have a private golf course, with its own gas station, in our Presidio. I guess it’s an Accident of History.

Oh well.

Parks & Wrecked: Arson Fire Burns Large Playground Structure at Koret in GGP – Photos

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

[UPDATE: Oh, per Andy Bosselman of Hoodline, the arson occurred early this morning.]

Here’s the news, via Peter Chu:

Who burns a playground?

Vandals strike playground in SF’s Golden Gate Park By Evan Sernoffsky

So now the largest play structure at five-star Yelp-rated Koret Children’s Quarter(s) in Golden Gate Park is shut down. And the part that is burned, with the slides and roofs, is connected to the climbing pole / pyramid you can see here on the right, and they’re connected to a few other things as well. All roped off:

So that’s it for the bigger kids play area at Koret now, and for a long time it looks like.

Look at the black burned out area underneath. Guzzoline? IDK. There used to be an enclosed slide on the left here – it’s all gone now.

I’m thinking this is a teardown. I’m thinking this will take months to fix.

Anyway, here are a few shots, showing the melted meltiness, some porno for pyros:

“FORN OIL – let ’em keep it”

Friday, December 16th, 2016

An aspirational message from somebody who still uses at least a bit of that foreign oil:

I guess this is a pro-fracking sentiment…

What Makes This Taxi an Eco-Taxi?

IDK.

Seen at an ARCO gas station:

A gasoline-powered minivan is “eco?”

Like I said, IDK.

A Tale of Two Gas Stations, One Charging 27% per Gallon More Than the Other at the Same Location, Market and Castro – “RC” v. Chevron

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

You’ve tried the soda, now try some gasoline:

Much cheaper than the Chevron across the street, unless you’re using a credit card, in which case you’re paying the same.

Two-stroke engines are disfavored these days, of course.

A “HALT CO2” License Plate Mounted One Foot Away from a Hidden Tailpipe What Emits … Carbon Dioxide

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Try not to breathe while reading this Gentle Reader, you know, since we’re “halt”-ing CO2:

7J7C8468 copy

I’ll tell you, you can’t not burn the guzzolene if you operate a Chevy Volt. I know people who live in Frisco and are able to minimize gasoline use by charging at home and only taking short trips. Even then, they’re still using gasoline, as a helper to get up hills or merely to keep the gasoline from getting too skunky / to maintain the gas engine part of the machine by simply using it, whether you want it to or not.

But oh, you’re “a part of the solution?” OK, maybe. What I’m saying, though, is your “HALT CO2” License Plate is Mounted One Foot Away from a Hidden Tailpipe What Emits … Carbon Dioxide. Just so long as you know…

Unless I’m Mistaken, What This “GREEN DIESEL ONLY!” Sticker on This School Bus Means is Really “DIESEL ONLY”

Friday, January 15th, 2016

The basic point of having a DIESEL ONLY sticker next to the fuel filler is to tell people to not to try to put gasoline into a diesel bus. So tacking on the word “green” in front seems to be more of a marketing effort:

What if one put some of the other seemingly infinite types of diesel into this rider – what would happen?

7J7C2251 copy

Nothing, I’ll bet.

Reminds me of the phrase “clean coal.”

Here’s What Your Bicycle Needs: A Gasoline Engine, So You Can Sound Like a Motorcycle – But Where’s the Helmet?

Friday, July 24th, 2015

Bro just goes around the block around the block lately, with no particular destination in mind – or so it appears.

Anywho, in CA, you need an approved helmet to legally operate this kind of motorized bicycle:

It makes such a big noise considering how small a ride it is…
