What Does It Mean When a Ferrari Driver Goes 50 MPH on the Freeway? It Means He’s Holding a Cell Phone Up To His FaceTuesday, August 26th, 2014
This driver wasn’t looking down at his cell phone (or iPod Touch or small tablet or phablet – I couldn’t really tell) while driving 15-20 MPH slower than surrounding traffic, oh no. Brocephus here was holding his mobile up high above the steering wheel.
I’ve never seen this before. Anyway, it’s your classic distracted driving and the proof of that is how slowly he was going.
(And a license plate? Oh no, no thanks, not for me, not for my Ferrari. License plates are for the little people driving around in their Honda Civics…)
Attention Ferraristi: You all think that you’re “good drivers” but in fact, as a group, you’re not. You’re all now on secret double probation – straighten up and fly right.
There are at Least Two Things Wrong with This “Member CHP 11-99 Foundation” License Plate and HolderTuesday, March 4th, 2014
1. A while back there was a perception, at the very least, of the California Highway Patrol involving itself with corruption when luxury car owners boasted of getting out of speeding tickets owing them being members of the 11-99 Foundation. So reforms were promised, but there still are a lot of those official 11-99 foundation license plate holders out there, oh well. Anyway, it was “wrong” for the CHP to allow this foundation any color of authoritah for any length of time
2. The owner of this car doesn’t even have an official license plate holder, oh no. All we have here is a home-made LP holder along with a personalized license plate. Anybody could do this without paying thousands of dollars to any foundation. So this looks a bit wrong as well.

Or maybe the original license plate holder was stolen for quick resale on eBay, IDK.
Regardless, this whole enchilada was/is wrong
The only thing better would be “Oregon” in there instead of “Washington”

Now I’m no narc. But if you are:
Did you know that the State of California loses millions of dollars a year in revenue from California residents who unlawfully register their vehicles in other states or countries?
Did you know that vehicle registration fees are due immediately upon accepting employment or establishing residency in the State of California?
Did you know that California law permits only 20 days to complete the process of registering your vehicle without paying a penalty?
The three most common reasons for not completing the registration process are:
- People are unaware of California registration laws.
- People are evading payments of registration fees and taxes.
- People are unable to comply with air pollution control laws.
Include the following information:
- State or province in which vehicle is registered. Mexican plates cannot be investigated without a physical address where the vehicle’s owner resides.
- Vehicle license number
- Date and time the vehicle was observed
- Make, model and color of the vehicle
- Location where the vehicle was observed (street(s) and city)
- Any additional comments and descriptive information
Word on the Street: “I HEART OSAKA” – A Little Love for San Francisco’s Sister City in Japan – Kansai in the Hiz-ouseTuesday, January 28th, 2014
Find out more about Japan’s third largest city over at the San Francisco-Osaka Sister City Association.
Actually, the Mayor of Osaka wanted to visit town last year, but San Francisco leaders like Rose Pak and Ed Lee didn’t cotton to that idea. It’s like, yeah, we can’t stop you from coming, but we’ll ignore you, we’ll pretend you don’t exist.*

Anywho, San Francisco’s Japantown is officially Little Osaka, believe it or not.
Leave us hope for happier times down the road…
*Let’s see here, who has never-say-that-name, Voldemort status in official SF these days? Former District Five Supervisor Christina Olague certainly. As well Former District Five Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi. Oh, and the San Francisco Bay Guardian newspaper – Rose Pak hasn’t even heard of that rag. And add to that Mayor Toru Hashimoto, which is fair enough. But Rose Pak and Ed Lee, try to think of people who do and say bad things in, I don’t know, the People’s Republic of China. And try to think of people who do and say bad things in, I don’t know, your very own local political faction, you know, the Willie Brown Gavin Newsom crowd. If you want.
