This $300,000 Ferrari GTC4Lusso Prolly Should Have License Plates, But the Ferraristi of Frisco Generally Don’t Like Displaying Plates

Friday, December 29th, 2017

This is a 2017 model, so like I say, it prolly should have plates on by now. As seen on gritty Fulton:

But there are many benefits of running around without plates of course. I can name five* or six.

Of course people who have Hondas and Kias all seem to be able to display their license plates.

Go figure.

*Avoiding those pesky license plate scanners so that your future ex-wife’s attorney can’t track your wheareabouts years later.
Free bridge passage.
Your nabes might think you have the new and “improved” 2018 model (which mostly looks the same except it doesn’t have all wheel drive and it doesn’t have this model’s V-12 (prolly for all-important emissions and MPG reasons), so is that really better? IDK).
A clean look for your ride.
Showing the world that you’re just like Steve Jobs, who also went plateless as a lifestyle.
(Don’t say use tax avoision, don’t say use tax avoision.)
Etc.

Not Many Takers for Frisco Phone Book Delivery the Past Month – Is “YP” Just a Scam to Separate Advertisers from Their Money?

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

This is my current theory. If the cost of production and delivery is less than what you can get out of advertisers, then you have an operating business, it seems, even if every last one of these unwanted “books” gets recycled within a few days of them getting dumped off.

Just a theory.

Frisco’s Opt Out System for Useless Telephone Book Delivery Isn’t Working, and Here’s the Proof

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Here’s the official opt out webpage, but it don’t work.

What happens is that deliverers count the number of units in a building and then leave that exact number on your stoop regardless of anybody opting out. Really, this is a lot easier than consulting some Do Not Deliver list.

So, a 3-unit building:

And a 14-unit building:

7J7C2882 copy

And another 3-unit building:

7J7C2907 copy

See how that works?

So:

  1. Frisco’s vaunted opt out system doesn’t work.
  2. Nobody wants these useless, bulky ad books anyway, so that makes things obvious that Frisco’s vaunted opt out system doesn’t work.
  3. Phone books haven’t been relevant since they took out the Rainbow Grocery 20% off coupons.

Attention YP: Nobody in town wants your products.

END OF LINE.

A Question for UBER, Lyft and SFO: How Much Crap is Too Much Crap for Car Windshields? – Obstructed Views, By Design

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

The FasTrak transponder isn’t the issue, it’s everything else, occluding vision near the starboard A-pillar:

The other issue is with all this AUTHORIZED TNC VEHICLE regalia is that it seems to make drivers feel that they are special, entitled.

(And if you’re still reading SFO, why not lengthen your runways and put them farther apart, you know, make your setup conform to federal regulations instead of what ended up happening, which was making federal regulations conform to deficient SFO?)

That is all.

Tesla Drivers with License Plates Hiding in the Trunk for Years Think YOU are a Sucker for Paying Bridge Tolls

Friday, May 19th, 2017

Oh yes, officer. I’ve been meaning to put on the license plates DMV sent me all those years ago, but [INSERT EXCUSE HERE].

As seen on the 101:

Mysterious “PREDATOR SCENT STUDY” is “IN PROGRESS” in Frisco – As Always, “DO NOT DISTURB THE STRAW BELOW”

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

I’ll try to pay off on this headline. See?

7J7C8201 copy

And see?

So what’s a predator? IDK.

Nearby, say within a half-mile or so, we have/had (exotic, red) foxes:

Und coyotes, yah?

I’ve seen these kinds of COYOTE ALERT signs near the PREDATOR STUDY area. Here’s one coyote critter from farther away back in the day, near the Buffalo Paddock:

So those are my guesses. I suppose we could be talking about raccoons and skunks and whatnot as well.

Someday we’ll find out about this PREDATOR STUDY, I’m sure…
