First there was the Renault Twizy:

And now there’s the highly similar Nissan Quad:
Race them if you want to:
All the deets:
A Scoot Quad is a mini electric car that can carry two people. Say hello to the Quads and get ready to explore the city in a whole new way.
• Top speed of 25 MPH
• Range of 40 city miles
• $1 of electricity to fill ‘er up from a normal wall outlet
• Gets the equivalent of 250 MPG (after doing the math to convert the electrical energy to dirty gas equivalent)
• Produces 6% of the CO2 per mile of a car (including the emissions from the power plants that make the electricity)
• US drivers license and Scoot membership required
• Carries two people — that’s what the backseat is for!
• No freeways, bridges, or roads with speed limits over 35 MPH
• Quads are $6 up to 30 min, 20¢ per minute afterwards.
Is Our Unleased Hibernia Bank Building a “Symbol of Rebirth for the Tenderloin” or Precisely the Opposite?Friday, November 4th, 2016
Here’s your Twitterloin status report:
Hey look, it’s COMING SOON FOR LEASE, which it has been for a couple years now.
Which is not to say it’s never used – the Hillary campaign used it for a few hours a few months back and the occasional conventioneer comes through, thusly:
But here’s what the promise was:
What I’m suggesting is this – if nobody wants this building, after, what, $20 million was sunk into it, then maybe it’s not a symbol of rebirth for the Tender / Twitter Loin? Perhaps it’s a symbol of all the empty promises and projections what come year after year, decade after decade?
Anyway, look for this building to continue to be COMING SOON FOR LEASE in 2017 as well…

Who says The Richmond is boring?
This is, and has been, a thing – see?
Hey, should these two blocks be on the Strava? Well, since there’re stop signs at the bottom of the dip, the answer is NO. Unless the “King of the Mountain” can actually stop, wait for any cross traffic to clear and then climb up to the next intersection in just 13 seconds…
If only Strava had more lawyer-advisors, you know, instead of the lawyer-investors, then Strava might look at this issue differently…
