Soon enough, the SFPD will warn smartcar owners to park these toys in a garage or backyard at night, you know, for security.
When Smart Cars started showing up in the 415, what I thought we’d see was:
1. Smart Car tipping (Naughty naughty!); and
It Has Come To Pass.
So most of these three-engine jets are now freighters.
Three-engined jetliners sort-of-made-sense back in the day, back when turbofan engines were less reliable and less powerful. But these days, in the era of the Big Twin, the only use for trijets is as a freighter.
As here, near the tall, tall Rincon 1 building in SoMa, a UPS Airlines freighter coming in to SFO from an unusual direction on account of the crazy wind we’ve been having:

Fundamentally, the MD-11 is an evolution of the ill-starred McDonnell-Douglas DC-10, which became a very unappealing aircraft back in the 1970′s. It was like girl you got a fat ass, girl you need a makeover. So she was made over. And the resulting MD-11 is indeed sexier, more appealing to operators, and that’s why you can still see them above.
But, as they say, mistakes were made. The tailplane was decreased in size for improved fuel economy however the MD11 became trickier to handle as a result.
And twinjets will always beat any fuel efficiency race with trijets.
You know, I’m pretty, I’m popular, so I thought I’d be a cinch to join this new outfit and take over the joint. But then I read the fine print and It’s all, “up and coming,” and “professional,” and “young,” and I’m like WTF?

Oh man, RPD General Manager Phil Ginsburg is NOT going to like seeing this. ‘Cause the daredevil seen below didn’t take a time-out to thank lawyer Phil Ginsburg for being appointed as RPD general manager.
Now, there’s a safety line, but this video is scary nevertheless.
As seen near Land’s End, near the Golden Gate Bridge:
1935: Germany strong:
2012: People’s Republic* of China strong:
And you can’t see, but there are five stars on the PRC flag:
“The five stars and their relationship represents the unity of Chinese people under the leadership of the Communist Party of China. The orientation of the stars shows that the unity should go around a center. The larger star symbolizes the Communist Party of China, and the four smaller stars that surround the big star symbolize the four social classes (the working class, the peasantry, the urban petite bourgeoisie and the national bourgeoisie) of Chinese people mentioned in Mao’s “On the People’s Democratic Dictatorship“
In the center of the photo, you’ll find “heiress and socialite” Charlotte Smith Mailliard Swig Shultz, wife of Famous Republican George P. Shultz – check out her bio.** Now, which star is for her? I’m thinking it’s the star representing the national bourgeoisie, but IDK for sure.
*The current communist or socialist states that include the words People’s Republic in their full names:
Historical examples include:
** CSMSS (born ca. 1934) is an American heiress and socialite. She is the Chief of Protocol for the state of California, and the Chief of Protocol for the City and County of San Francisco. She is the wife of former United States Secretary of State George P. Shultz. In 2007, she was named Honorary Commander of The Royal Victorian Order by Queen Elizabeth II.
You had the option of going under or over the wire.
Here’s UNDER. See how that works? Easy peasy.
Click to expand – well there’s the problem: No bottom tension wire on the chain link fence plus the line posts were placed too far apart.
And here’s OVER. This here is called the bum rush:
You could get away with this kind of thing a couple years ago.
Now. things have changed – you won’t be able find these weaknesses in 2013.
Oh, your friend Badger’s working on the inside this year and he’s going to let you and your buds in? Well, that might work.
But the days of a single chain link fence between you and your tunes are over at the Outside Lands
