Shots From The 100: The Biggest Windmill I’ve Ever Seen – For the Giant Anheuser-Busch Beer Brewery in Fairfield, CA

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Back in the day, we only had little wind turbines.

Anheuser-Busch and Foundation Windpower assembled a white wind turbine with a tower some 320 feet tall at the Budweiser brewery along Interstate 80. Hundreds of such mammoth turbines are in place 10 miles to the east in rural Montezuma Hills pastureland, but this one is in Fairfield city limits. Brewing beer at Budweiser should soon be a breeze. Plant General Manager Kevin Finger estimated the turbine could provide 20 percent of the electricity for the brewery.”

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District Drives to the Meeting About Eliminating Parking Spaces on Polk Street – Ironic?

Monday, April 29th, 2013

I’m not finished yet.

Look at this official Bay Area Air Quality Management District staff car. What powers it? Gasoline. Evil, evil gasoline.

Now let’s leave aside the half-assed parking job directly in front of the latest Polk Great Streets Complete Streets “Improvement” Meeting. Oh wait, let’s not. Parallel parking involves being parallel, right? Work on that, BAAQMD. And should you have left your ass hanging over the official SFMTA red zone? Have you no respect for The Law, BAAQMD?

Hey BAAQMD, where’d you come from to get to the corner of Bush and Polk? Tell me and I’ll then tell you which crappy SFMTA bus line you all could have used to get to the meeting. I myself came up Sutter from the office ’cause it’s relatively flat. See? I’m loaded with info!

Conveniently using one of the many parking spaces it wants to eliminate in the Polk Corridor. Let’s call this shot The High Cost of Free Parking:

Hey BAAQMD! Do you pay the meters when you park you gasoline-powered cars about town on the weekends? I think we had a big deal about this issue just last year, right? Oh no, you just leave the meter flashing EXPIRED EXPIRED while you tend to your bidness for hours? OK fine.

Oh well.

The BAAQMD isn’t an Air Quality Management program, it’s a jobs program.

It’s a jobs program for the people who work for … the BAAQMD.

Just saying.

Owning a Toyota Prius Hybrid Means Never Having to Say Sorry for Parking on the Sidewalk

This Guy Must Be San Francisco’s Best Parker – Just Look at All His Residential Parking Permits – Dr. Woof Abides

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Look at this guy – see all the stickers he has from San Francisco’s ridiculous residential parking permit program?

He’s probably paid, all by himself, for two or three day’s worth of retirement benefits for a Parking Control Officer.

Hurray!

And look, he bought a bunch of parking permits the right way, you know, one after the other.

Unlike some other people:

If You Drive a Toyota Prius Hybrid, the Laws of California Don’t Apply to You, Apparently

Most of the People Who Drive in San Francisco at Night Without Headlights Own Toyota Prius Hybrids

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

It’s uncanny.

Prius drivers are pretty bad to start with, so Toyota should have taken steps to make sure that they’d be aware that their headlights are not on.

Toyota didn’t.

Pork-Barrel Republican Roy LaHood is a Bad Secretary of Transportation – Here’s Why – Toyota Cars vs. Boeing Planes

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Transportation Secretary Roy LaHood ‘s message to Toyota owners back in 2010:

“LaHood says his advice to owners is to ‘stop driving it. Take it to a Toyota dealer because they believe they have a fix for it.’”

Now here’s message regarding Boeing’s new 787 wide-body:

I believe this plane is safe and I would have absolutely no reservations of boarding one of these planes and taking a flight,” Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said at the press conference.”

Perhaps these statements are the right thing to say politically, but they’re not the right thing to say IRL. The chances of people dying in a 787 accident over the next month or so are low, but those chances are orders of magnitude higher than that of passengers on a tried-and true Boeing 777, for example.

So the fact that we’re not even going to consider grounding the fleet in America because some pol “thinks” the 787 is “safe” seems stupid to me.

And the latest is that an airline in Japan has grounded its entire fleet of 787 Dreamliners.

Oh well.

Bad Toyota Prius Hybrid Driver Stops for Peds in the Middle of the Wrong Crosswalk – Violating the Law, Slowly

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

The problem with the Prius drivers is that they feel entitled to do what they want when they want PLUS they generally do their outrageous acts slowly.

As here, on Kearny. The actions of a pushy Ferrari confused this Prius driver, who entered the intersection about a second after his/her light went red. The driver then proceeded across the street s-l-o-w-l-y only to chirp the brakes in a panic stop in the middle of the crosswalk on the far side of the intersection:

Later on, the driver just sat there with the brake lights off, which I don’t get either.

Prius drivers, you aren’t a part of the solution, you’re a part of the problem.

Take the HOV stickers off the corners of your ride and try to pay attention to the road.

Perhaps you could crack your windows to be more in touch with your environment?

Perhaps you could carpool, you know, with other people, if you want to drive in the carpool lane?

Perhaps you could save radio listening and phone talking for the freeway?

Just asking.

In closing, Prius drivers are terrible.
