I think in Miami your car could be worth $3000 less for not having a goofy color, but here in Frisco it’s the opposite.

All right, get out there and conform, Fellow Citizens.

Ugly New Statue Appears South of Market – Like the Goddess of Democracy But Without Arms – “Venus de Rent Control”

Monday, June 13th, 2016

Man, this thing is surprisingly ugly. Here’s prolly the best way to show it, with the perpetually-clogged 8th Street (considered “excess road space” by our corrupt SFMTA, somehow).

A little closer and now it looks out of focus, non? The buildings in front and behind look to be in focus, but not the thing itself.

And here it is. (I swear this is in focus.)

Anyway, just like the real Goddess of Democracy, this thing was made in China, for better or worse.

IDK, man. Who signed off on this? Wouldn’t it have been better to have taxed the Father of Rent Control $5,000,000 and then have put the money in our General Fund?

An SFPD motor patrol officer said the bike rider had a broken back and a possible broken pelvis. He said that words might have been exchanged between the bike rider and somebody in the red Hyundai before the collision.

Last I heard, the bike rider was responsive and stable.

San Francisco Bay Area Aerial Radiation Assessment Survey

Press Release
Jan 27, 2016

(SAN JOSE and SAN FRANCISCO, California) – A helicopter may be seen flying at low altitudes over portions of the San Francisco Bay Area from January 29 through February 6, 2016. The purpose of the flyovers is to measure naturally occurring background radiation.

Officials from the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) announced that the radiation assessment will cover a collection of areas spanning approximately 22 square miles. A twin-engine Bell 412 helicopter, operated by the Remote Sensing Laboratory Aerial Measuring System from Nellis Air Force Base, will be equipped with radiation sensing technology. The helicopter will fly in a grid pattern over the areas at 150 feet (or higher) above the ground surface at a speed of approximately 80 miles per hour. Flyovers will occur only during daylight hours and are estimated to take about three hours to complete per area.

The measurement of naturally occurring radiation to establish baseline levels is a normal part of security and emergency preparedness. NNSA is making the public aware of the upcoming flights so that citizens who see the low-flying aircraft are not alarmed.

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

I can’t recall a bigger mass killing in San Francisco since the Ingleside Howth Street Home Invasion of 2012 and, before then, the 101 California Street Shooting of 1993.

Here’s 20 minutes of audio from @ScannerSays.

(“10-30” means that the car is suspected stolen.)
