MUNI Bus Ad Update: Interesting “What Are These Gays Behind?” vs. Uninteresting “What Are These Guys Behind?”Wednesday, March 11th, 2015
Anyway, I read this one as, “What Are These Gays Behind?”
But IRL it says “What Are These Guys Behind?”

Do you love gold?
Lots of criminals do.
And pretty soon, they’ll realize that the value of the gold in some new watches from Apple is very very high.
Let’s see what the SFPD has to say:
“As with any new technology, of course there is a concern that thieves will prey on victims with the new technology,” San Francisco Police Department public information officer, Albie Esparza said. “Criminals are opportunistic. If there is a demand, there will be supply. It’s simple business economics.”
So, I don’t care what security features your multi-thousand dollar gold iWatch has, there’s nothing stopping somebody from taking your shiny and then melting it down to sell the gold for $1000 an ounce.
Now here’s a guy at the Original Aple Store at 1 Stockton in Union Square trying and failing to shoplift some $350(!) Beats headphones:
Apple realizes that its new watches will need to be protected just as at any other Union Square jewelry / bling bling store.
But once its on your wrist, security will be YOUR problem.

In my thoughts I have seen, Rings of smoke through the trees, but IRL I seen RPD making mad smoke by burning stuff in a wooded area east of the Conservatory of Flowers:
From this chimney:
So, RPD burns stuff in Golden Gate Park? Didn’t know that.

So back about 35 years ago, you’d blow into Frisco and corporations would just hand you tokens for a free cable car ride.
Why not, it made you happy and it was free advertising for the sponsoring organizations, like United Airlines, the St. Francis Hotel, Ghirardelli Square, TWA (RIP) and CP Airlines (also RIP).
Fares are 2300% higher these days, oh well.

Here you go:
Bradshaw tells us he later saw the sign a bit worse for wear, having “taken a beating.” Weird. Who dislikes bison?”
And here’s the sign in question, I think. It’s on the east end of the paddock, on JFK in GGP. And it’s cast iron, I think. Pretty indestructible, IMO. It’s the color of iron oxide:
It’s a little bit lighter in color on the left side, but otherwise it looks A-OK to me, condition-wise.
Anyway, I don’t know what “taken a beating” means.

Bro was ON when he made this one
So many requirements!
Arrow pointing the direction from the sign to the district
White/grey text on a blue field with red accents (colors came from the spec if I remember)
Images of landmarks and/or features of the district on the left side of the sign
Name of the district written in US English with a native translation below
Signmakers marks in the lower right within the blue field
Relative dimensions (aspect ratio)
Location of mounting holes
Pattern and type of reflective material (which I imitated)
A border around the sign with a certain width (the grey border)
Man, This Looks Like a Lot of Effort to Carry Around Just Two Pedicabs – The Massive “Cabrio Mobile” Chevy SuburbanTuesday, December 31st, 2013
At first I figured a trailer would be easier, but this rig has a trailer as well – Cabrio Mobile.
Must be a bear to park this thing:
