Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Just like last year.

One of the playful kits:

And here’s the stir:

Annual membership MWNP / MWNM is just $40 (which gets four in at any time for a whole year), but I shan’t renew as the feds are fed up with all the people here, so a privately-operated for-profit parking system is a-coming. (I wasn’t aware that it was so bad to park next to the creek.) Anywho, there are a lot of ways to get in an around Muir Woods without getting in a traffic jam, waiting for parking, or, far that matter, paying any fees at all.

Basically, the toll gate at the main entrance is only for inbound travelers and there are a lot of other entrances.

Anyway, they want fewer people/tourists milling about the main entrance / gift shop, and that’s what they’ll get. I’ll see you all as I exit through the gift shop.

UBER Self-Driving Car on the Streets of San Francisco – Three Views – Black Ford Fusion Hybrid Titanium with a Grey KFC Bucket Atop

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

[UPDATE: Oh, this is a self driving car, they tell me, not a mapping car, my bad. Or maybe it is a map car, IDK. It’s not a Volvo XC90 the likes of which have just been announced as sel-driving cars.]

UBER, a company what loses lots of money, tries to play catch-up with Google, a company what makes lots of money:

The KFC bucket rotates of course:

Here’s your background

I guess those are six-bladed propellers:

Know Your Google Bus from the Front, Side and Back

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

These are the new robin’s egg blue decals from the SFMTA – the “pilot” bus program is over, so the old light green decals have expired now.

If you have any beefs with these buses, you’re supposed to call 311, that’s what the new phone icon means. And then you tell them, “Bus 09-5016 just run me over,” or something. That’s the system, baby.

The prefix “09” means LUX LEASING LLC. What’s that? Who the Hell knows, Gentle Reader. It’s some company, somewhere.

And now we’re at the back. Here’s something new to me – a HOW’S MY DRIVING sticker:

‘Cause the “Luxury” Leasing ppl want you complaining to them afore you call up SFGov with your bus beef.

This is how things stand with corporate buses in Frisco in the second half of 2016…

The Quiet Scene After a Hit and Run on Clement?

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

One assumes. The Mercedes driver seemed combobulated enough, but she was satisfied to sit there for minutes and minutes. (This would not have been my reaction.)

One attempts to offer assistance, but then one just moves on with one’s day as the snap crackle and pop, pop, pop of traffic driving over Mercedes plastic fades away…

I think in Miami your car could be worth $3000 less for not having a goofy color, but here in Frisco it’s the opposite.

All right, get out there and conform, Fellow Citizens.

And he’s peeling off those dollar bills
Slapping them down
One hundred, two hundred
And I can see those fighter planes
And I can see those fighter planes
