Bay Area Bike Share (BABS) is a Smorgasboard of Illegal Parking, and Driving – And Let’s Check in That Yelp Rating

Friday, October 7th, 2016

Market Street, yesterday:


Is this official, like from Ford? IDK.

And then they have their big Nissan vans – they double park, park on the sidewalks and make illegal turns off of Market all the time. Is that kosher?

And what’s up with these Ford pickups all illegally parked next to each other basically every day at the BABS station on Market near 5th? They’re still showing up. Does the reflective triangle make everything OK? IDK


Any connection here? IDK.

And the Yelp ratings are in the cellar, still. Seems like people are paying a lot of money for these bikes, considering what they get, and some people at some companies are millionaires now, and speaking of millions, taxpayers will end up paying tens of millions afore this program gets defunded or whathaveyou.

All is not well in BABS-land these days.

And I can’t wait to see all the Ford ads, which, one assumes, will be plastered all over, soon…

Friday, August 19th, 2016

What’s this stuff made of? It’s been there at McAllister and Divisadero in the north NoPA, DivCo, western Western Addition for months now:

This would be agin the rules even if it were temporary chalk, oh well…

A government what like planting trees, but doesn’t like taking care of trees, so why don’t you do it, property owner?

Bad Dog? – “No, Bad Human” – Graffiti Artist Shames the Errant Dog Owners of the Western Addition’s “Alamo Square Historic District”

Friday, June 10th, 2016

I think leaving dog poo on the sidewalk is just as impermissible as tagging, but sometimes two wrongs make a right?

Anyway, somebody’s fed up with some of the dog owners of the Between Alamo Square And The Projects part of town…

OHHHMMMMMMMM – Area Tech Bro Reaches Zen Level of Electric Unicycle Mastery – OHHHMMMMMMMM

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

I think I was on-campus, you know, down in The Valley, back in aught thirteen when I saw my first post-collegiate tech bro* getting about on an electric unicycle.

Of course now it’s ought sixteen and these things have spread to Frisco’s Financh. But this tech bro is a true master. He’s got his hands in the pockets of his cargo shorts!

A quick jog around a¬†load of boxes and then we’re off, to The Future:

Of course we might be heading the in the wrong direction, on the wrong side of the street, like literally, but nevertheless, we’re off to The Future.

*One time I called a late 30’s tech bro a tech bro and he got all pissed off, saying how he has kids in the SFUSD and so ergo, he couldn’t be a tech bro. But he works at Box! So I’m still thinking he’s a tech bro. I don’t think there’s an age cut-off…

Edleeite: Official Google Results for Frisco Costco Displays Broken Auto Glass – Street Crime at Warehouse #144 in SoMA

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

I’ve never seen as much broken glass upon the Streets of San Francisco as I’ve seen in this year, 2016, so far. The current level is redolent of the late 80’s / early 90’s, IMO.

So try it, Gentle Reader. Google yourself for “Costco 144.” You get this:

And that leads to this:

Oh well.

It’s SANDWICH MANIA at 5017 Geary near Park Presidio – Long Lines at Lou’s Cafe – 4.5 Yelp Stars Don’t Lie – The Richmond’s Best Lunch

Sandwich Fever – Catch It:

You know, for every small business person who’s mad at Yelp, there’s another who complains not a whit. Little wonder owners of not-so-hot bidnesses want to suspend the First Amendment and ban Yelp…

Hot Times in the Richmond District: This Crowd on Geary is Waiting for GOOD CHEAP FOOD or a GAMBLING BUS

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

As seen on Geary:

7J7C0654 copy

I’m thinking it’s a gambling bus pick up point and these people are just waiting around. Or it could be like San Tung, which is about to get its 5000th Yelp review.

(Actually, lots of times when joints get national attention, they raised prices, oh well.)

Anyway, Richmond District NIMBYs won’t appreciate a bus stop like this, I’ll bet. People are already complaining about this kind of thing in the less-trafficked parts of the Sunset…

You know, for illegal parking, this isn’t bad:
