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

SFGov is the Daddy, But Now You’re Paying the Child Support – “NOTICE TO TRANSFER TREE MAINTENANCE RESPONSIBILITY”Thursday, July 7th, 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…
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 LunchMonday, April 4th, 2016
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 BUSWednesday, February 24th, 2016
As seen on Geary:
(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:
Sorry if that’s too nuanced for you, or Scott Wiener or Ed Lee or whomever…
What the Tourist Areas of Twin Peaks Need is a Little More Security, But What They’re Getting is This Giant NFL Ad Sculpture, “5 of 10”Friday, January 22nd, 2016
Well, here’s what it looks like, you know, before the Vandals get to it:
(And this is what I was referring to: French tourists mugged on S.F.’s Twin Peaks – this kind of thing.)
And here’s the report on Super Bowl 50 already, even before the Big Game (what, the New England Patriots vs. the Carolina Panthers – should I care who wins, like, at all?) kicks off. Wow.
You know, I don’t think the NFL will be coming back to Frisco in 2023 or whatever, or really, anytime soon. This party isn’t good for us, and it’s not good for the NFL, right? Shouldn’t the Super Bowl be held on Eastern Standard Time in Florida in or someplace like that? Or someplace that can use it, like in Detroit? I think so.
So enjoy this corporate party while you can…
Speaking of which, here’s 3 of 10, I think:
Hey, what’s going to happen next, NFL? I’ll bet it isn’t in your playbook, you know, the one with the cheesy black and gold color scheme. Hey NFL, you’re the invading army and the people of Frisco are the Na’vi, with smooth, striped cyan-colored skin, large amber eyes, and long, sweeping tails, so you’re going to have to expect a few of your bulldozers to get burned down over the next few weeks.
And then? Then come these guys with the red paint (and the white pants, you know, for contrast) on Game Day. Enjoy.
