Quadrilla is the Best Game Ever, If You’re Three Years Old – And Up – Expensive But Worth It? Maybe

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

This is the marble run: Hape Quadrilla Cyclone.

And here’s how much it costs. Which is to say Amazon will sell this set to you for something between $90-something and $190-something.

Here’s one way to set it up:

The Wall Street Journal approves, anyway.

Here’s the Cyclone set in action:

And here’s a mish-mash of two other sets:

Oh, made in China, natch.

IDK, read the comments section in Amazon for a few minutes and then You Make The Call.

I myself paid on the low end of Amazon’s absurdly wide pricing range, so I’m not complaining…

I don’t know where the closest human playground is from here.

At first I thought it looked a little bleak for a playground, but then I saw that it was dogs only…

(And I say brand-new ’cause it still seems that way to me, even after a few years.)

A Cry for Help: Young Man Runs a Red Light in His Grandma Car near Civic Center – Colorado? Duke?

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Maintaining this aging beast must be a bear:

In any event, maybe people drive different in Colorado, but even the SFPD will catch up to him soon if he continues to run red lights, and maybe they’ll suggest he get a California plate from the DMV if he decides to stay here…

Irate Pedestrian Hectors Bike Riders Individually and Indiscriminately in a Crosswalk at 4th and Market

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

She hectored only the riders who stopped for her at the crosswalk.

She was angered by the riders who went through the red, but they were too far away for her to hector. Her unfocused rage came out against those who were already doing as she wished.

Then after she passed by, riders began to run the red, cause the signal timing of 4th and Market these days is crazy. (Like, who’s doing what now? Like why isn’t anybody using the intersection now?)

The SFPD vs. the Drug Dealers of the Alvord Lake Bridge – A Game of Cat and Mouse – Running Across Kezar Drive

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Does the SFPD drive its big Ford Crown Victorias ‘neath the first reinforced concrete bridge built in America just to chat with area drug dealers? Yes, yes it does. Officers simply drive past the world’s smallest lake (sadly just two-star rated) and then under Kezar Drive.

And then they hang a left to do a little 2WD off-roading.

Oh, what’s this, lazy drug dealers who don’t know enough to run away? In this case yes. But in other cases, more motivated dealers hoof it up the hill and across three lanes of traffic on Kezar Drive.

On it Goes…

Cycling Hipsters Busted by SFPD on Market Near Fifth, San Francisco’s Hotspot for Bicycle Violation Crackdowns

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

This is the new normal, with the SFPD routinely handing out tickets to bicycling hipsters on Market at or near the Powell Street turnaround crosswalk.

Like this, yesterday, when MACAFRAMA and fedora LEGO bag here got cold busted for, one presumes,  running a red light and/or listening to tunes using both the left and right earbuds:

Gascon’s Boner: Kokkari-Boozing Drunk Driver Kills a Tourist Then Runs – But Only a Year in Jail for Joshua Calder?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

Wow, this case ended up with a plea bargain for just twelve months in jail?

The case of Nils Linke used to be a BFD.

See? 

Click to expand

But late last month it evaporated into nothingness, into a simple jail term.

So, you can booze it up at world-famous Kokkari restaurant, run over a German tourist despite your gf yelling at you to look out, get out of the car to move the German tourist’s bike off of the road (no, not him himself, just the bike, you leave the dude himself to die), get back into the car after switching seats with the gf, and then drive away, and your punishment, years later, will be, what six months, eight months, in county jail because that’s what District Attorney George Gascon is willing to sign off on. No trial, no nothing, just a plea deal.

So what would Joshua Calder have gotten without the hitting and the running and the seat switching? Three months? Community service?

Mmmm….
