The Graff company is trying to get you to buy something you don’t need, OK fine:

Family Fun for the Holidays: Going Crabbing at Torpedo Wharf Under the Golden Gate Bridge for Free – No Permits Required

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Why, this bucolic scene almost looks like Mayberry, R.F.D., excepting for the famous bridge up high.

Check it:

You can legally fish or crab without a license at Torpedo Wharf at the west end of Crissy Field. Look for posted regulations.”

Them’s crabbers down there, that’s what they are, those West End girls and boys

This Little Scamp in SoMA is Just Part of the Reason Why It’s Hard to Do Bizness in the 415 – Skipping Stones Across 9th Street

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

This street imp was looking like all the others, just a slob like one of us, until he pulls a rock out of his hoodie and hurls a 70 mph fastball across 9th without really breaking stride. He reared back and hurled but then resumed walking with a quickness.

I was supposing he was throwing the rock at a person but his target was a business vehicle, a white van.

The thing is he threw it down and counted on a random bounce get it up to where it could do some damage.

Anyway, here he is, walking away, all casual, IndyBay personified. If you looked around after getting struck you wouldn’t necessarily suspect him. This kid’s a pro, a professional:

And here’s his rock, found right in the middle of the sidewalk across the street, seen next to a fat lawyer’s shoe for comparison:

How many more stones does this kid have in his hoodie’s marsupial pocket? Probably lots.

So this is why your window gets broken randomly, for no reason.

Now you’d think the hormones coursing through his veins would be telling him to get out there and try to impress girls, or boys, or whomever, you know, so he could have sex or something, right? But no, all that frustration and energy gets poured into another kind of release, the satisfaction of hearing breaking windows or causing grievous bodily injury to random pedestrians on the mean streets of San Francisco.

Oh well…

Animated Al Gore Sex-Crazed Poodle Video: Another Winner from Taiwan’s NMA

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

I don’t know, when you’re paying people $540 for massages, misunderstandings can happen. That’s about the most charitable way of looking at things vis-a-vis Al Gore in this whole massage incident.

Anyway, comes now NMA, the people who make animated videos to explain the news to people in Taiwan. This one is a doozy.

In this scene, Al G. explains the ground rules:

Uh oh, he’s getting p’oed:

Explaining the poodle reference:

Not sure what W and Pink are doing in there, but oh well:

Enjoy.

Former US vice president and climate change warrior Al Gore is in hot water after news emerged this week of a 2006 close encounter with a hotel masseuse in Oregon. In a statement made to Portland police reported in the press, the 54-year-old masseuse recounted how she repeatedly had to fight off groping Gore as he made several attempts to bed her after she attended his hotel suite to administer a massage. So far, no charges have been filed.

美國前副總統高爾(Al Gore)上月才驚傳與結縭40年妻子分道揚鑣,現在又驚爆性醜聞。美國媒體報導,一名奧勒岡州女按摩師在2006年曾指控高爾性攻擊,甚至聲稱當晚所穿內衣留有高爾的DNA,可資佐證。

根據《國家詢問報》等媒體報導,這名不願透露身分的54歲女按摩師指稱,2006年10月在飯店安排下,替以化名「史東先生」入住的高爾按摩。
抓手迫摸下體

當她按摩到腹部時,高爾要求她繼續往下,遭拒後大發雷霆,並抓住她的手碰觸自己鼠蹊部。按摩結束後,高爾愛撫她的胸臀、親她,還將她推上床,只差沒霸王硬上弓。
該女子在數周後才報案,表示當時「完全嚇呆,擔心失去工作」。據帳單顯示,按摩服務從當晚 11時開始,第一節為90分鐘,其後立即追加一節75分鐘。高爾共支付540美元(約1.7萬元台幣),另加給兩成小費。俄勒岡州檢方也證實,確實有女子報案稱遭高爾「不當肢體接觸」,但她後來不願接受警方訪談,也不願提告

License-Free Crabbing Under the Golden Gate Bridge at the Presidio’s Torpedo Wharf

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Here’s what you do – you get your stuff, head on over to the Presidio‘s Torpedo Wharf (fka the U.S. Navy Pier, fka the Fort Point Mine Depot) then go get yourself some Rock Crab (Cancer Aniennarius). License? You don’t need no stinking license.

Here’s your checklist. But make sure you don’t pick up any Dungeness Crab ”by mistake.” And be on the lookout for freighters off-loading people from other countries sans documentation. That happened a bit sometimes at the Torpedo, before 9-11.

Join in the fun – strangers welcomed with open arms. There’s enough crab and fish for all:

Can You Really Tow 500 Pounds on a Bike? This Guy in San Francisco Can.

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

This fellow on Fell Street says he can tow up to 500 pounds on his long long trailer.

I guess this rig looks like it could handle a passed-out sumo wrestler, if he were properly balanced to keep tongue weight down. So a 35 stone payload seems plausible.

Plaudits.
