Thursday, August 28th, 2014

The first sign I saw from this campaign was aimed at cyclists. This one’s aimed at drivers:

What’ll be next? Maybe an ad aimed at SF’s horrible pedestrians…

The Problem with Gary Bauer of Bauer Limousine Using the Term “Intelligent Transportation” for His Buses: He’s Not All That Smart

Monday, August 4th, 2014

To wit:, here’s a fine capture from drunkonthebeach:

So Gary Bauer, if you want to have a reputation of being intelligent, you should attempt to become a Lecturer at UC Berkeley.

OTOH, if you want to continue being a wealthy, politically-connected rent-seeker, well, keep up the good work…

So Who Owns the Koshland Mansion at 3800 Washington Anyway? Taylor Swift or CNET’s Halsey Minor or “Miss Xia Xu?”

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Well, this was the big rumor of May 2014:

Taylor Swift Rumored To Buy Historical Presidio Heights Mansion for $18M

But the Taylor Swift people said no way, Jose.

But hey, look what’s on the front door now, a weathered posting:

Here’s my stab at it:

MR HU XU AND I MISS XIA XU

OWN OUR PERMANENT RESIDENCE

3800 AND 3810 WASHINGTON STREET

IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

THIS PROPERTY IS NOT FOR SALE

MISS XIA XU

But here’s the For Sale sign that’s still there. (Note the smallish 3810 Washington next door on the left.)

And here’s the web site still offering the place for sale. Check it out – the floor plans make this place look amazing, with levels up and down into the earth

And here’s the current listing.

This certainly is a mystery…

Subterranean by design
I wonder what I would find
If I met you, let my eyes caress you
Until I meet the thought of Miss Princess Xu?

Interpreting MUNI Hieroglyphics: 43 + 54 + 69 = You’re Going To Be Late, Again, Again, Again

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Let’s see here:

43 Masonic;

54 minutes ’til the next bus; and

69* minutes ’til the bus after that

What’s that, MUNI, you want more money?

But every other transit system in the world does more with less…

* Heh. Your algorithm should prolly round 69 minutes either down to 68 or up to 70, MUNI.**  I mean, you don’t see CA license plates saying 4SEX397 or anything, do you? There’s a reason for that.

**Yes, all caps even tho it’s not an acronym. It’s easy for readers to understand and it matches your iconic snake logo, MUNI, that’s why.
