If you liked the Cosco Busan, you’ll love the Cosco Indo – it’s lots bigger:
Hey, did you know that our U.S. Coast Guard is a branch of the U.S. military? Hey, you know who knew that at the time of the Cosco Busan Petroleum Spill? The crew of the Cosco Busan, hence the lack cooperation after one of our well-paid* bar pilots screwed up, big-time.
*Hey, who pays our bar pilots? You do. You do when you buy an iPhone, and other tings…
I’ll tell you, ONLY IN MARIN, ’cause only in Marin will you find the LifeFactory company, which makes those expensive, fashionable glass water bottles with silicone covers what are all the rage at the hot yoga the past few years. LF offers us “mobile glass solutions for modern life,” don’t you know.
That’s right, the Lifefactory ppl have US Patent 8579133 B2, Protective sleeves for containers. Check it:
You can see their press release below.
But come now the Ello and Zulu ppl to say, well, read what they have to say right here.
This story writes itself.

1. Dear LF, what’s wrong with people buying Ello bottles at Costco #144 in SoMA for $7.49? (Oh, you’ll get an earful on that one, about how Ello sucks, which, you know, the pop-tops do seem a bit cheesy, but then again, everybody I know with the LF bottles complains about leaking caps, so there you go,)
2. And if your lawsuit is going so great, why is it that ppl can still buy Ello stuff in ‘Merica?
3. And Ello uses squares instead of circles (and Zulu uses a diamond pattern, I think), so what’s so wrong with that?
Enquiring Minds Want To Know.
I’ll tell you, nobody’s covered this one. This is your story.
This is the most accessible, local patent law case you will find. I’m srsly.

I don’t know. Some consultant came up with 10 MPH a few years back, but that idea wasn’t good for business, or something like that.
Now here’s a sign that tells you how fast you’re going, anyway:
Sometimes, I just don’t know…
Brace yourselves, Liberty Hill, brace yourselves, Castro / Noe Valley. Here’s what could be in store for you:
“Applicant: Stephen Fowler – 38 Liberty Street (3608/044A); Project Review meeting to discuss the following: Property is part of the Liberty Hill Historic District. Applicant would like to raise building, add a garage, and add a vertical and horizontal additions as well as restore Victorian facade. Applicant is requesting a preservation and environmental planner.”
Hey, didn’t Stephen Fowler just wear out his welcome in Noe Valley just a few years ago, before decamping to the ‘burbs of Marin? I think so. Remember that whole deal, when the denizens of Noe went down to City Hall to argue with the San Francisco Wife Swapper et ux. It was a fiasco. Hey, remember when octogenarian Mr. Hanamura, who got “evicted” in World War II, as a Japanese American, had somebody drop a dime on him to SFGov to get him out of his illegal in-law unit? (Hey, who made that call, I wonder.)
And then up in Marin, there was the Tree Topping Issue, but I won’t get into that.
All right, I’ll show my “work.”

And look, does he still want to “restore” the front – a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down? IDK.
Who knows what’s in store…
