These elephants are something I’ve never noticed at our California Academy of Sciences:
These elephants, the ones moving along.
They also have leopard vocalizations, which is something new, I think. Look up.
See you there!
Actually, Airbnb here is dramatizing the current regulations of San Francisco, regulations which Airbnb spent a lot of time and effort to enact:
So yes, a senile person can contact SFGov anonymously about an illegal Airbnb hotel operating where it shouldn’t, but this isn’t a possible post Prop F future, it’s what’s possible right now.
This is how you view San Franciscans, Airbnb?
Let’s take a look:
“‘Critical Mass has definitely brought attention to bicycle issues, and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without them,’ said Leah Shahun, executive director of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.”
And now, let’s fast forward to today to get this:
SF Bicycle Coalition
@sfbike @HansOngchua We heard and have no affiliation, of course. Terrible news, though we appreciate you looping us.
Now srsly, I don’t think people were accusing the SFBC of being “affiliated” with Critical Mass, I think they were looking for the SFBC to disavow the actions of the U-lock attacker.
So to have a blanket response like “no affiliation, of course” [you ignorant fool], well that doesn’t really cut the mustard now, do it.
‘Cause this is coming from a taxpayer-subsidized org, right? A government-funded organization that takes hundreds of thousands of dollars from us for the purpose of bicycle-related safety, and all they can come up with is:
Comes now Chris Carlsson to disavow, to fill the void.
What are we spending all our money on, if the SFBC washes its hands of the matter and says, NO COMMENT, like literally to this, to 165k Views and counting?
Well, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do:
The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not.
There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA.
Sing along: Barracuda.
I think this is it – this is the best license plate / car combo I’ve ever seen:
Know your Plymouth ‘Cudas.
Ooooh, street cred, sort of:
“In 2009, it was named the 34th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.”
“Ann Wilson revealed in interviews that the song was about Heart’s anger towards Mushroom Records’ attempted publicity stunt involving her and her sister Nancy Wilson in a made-up incestuous affair. The song particularly focuses on Ann’s rage towards a man who came up to her after a concert asking how her “lover” was. She initially thought he was talking about her boyfriend, band manager Michael Fisher. After he revealed he was talking about her sister Nancy, Ann became angry and went back to her hotel room to write the original lyrics of the song.”
And if the real thing don’t do the trick
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn to the wick
Look, a petulance parade:
“On Wednesday July 29th from 5:30-6:30 pm, please join us for our first Wiggle Stop-In event. We want to gather 50-100 cyclists to ride around the Wiggle/Lower Haight and stop at every stop sign in single file order. We want to make the point that, in fact, requiring cyclists to come to full stops at every stop sign is a really terrible idea for everyone on the road.
Grab your bike, ride to the Wiggle (the epicenter will be Waller and Steiner), and wait your turn for your chance to come to a full and complete stop at every intersection. Bonus points if you need to negotiate with other “vehicles” about who should be going first.
Let’s show Capt. John Sanford of Park Station that his choice to crack down on cyclists who aren’t following the letter of the law not only doesn’t make anyone safer but actually would create terrible conditions on our roads.”
Here’s your background:
And here’s your prior stab at a media stunt in this area, conducted by someone unfamiliar with, you know, our First Amendment:
I’ll tell you, back in the day I didn’t have the cable TV. So my bud would tape MTV’s Real World San Francisco and then people would come over to watch it on VHS cassette on the “big screen” TV, a 27″ Sony Trinitron.
I’ll tell you, RWSF was a BFD back in ’94. It was the talk of the town. These people were all over the place. (Poor MTV – they were shocked at how hard it was to get area bar owners and the like to agree to allow entry for taping the show.) Anyway, it looked like this:
So that was then, but this is now. It’s Rachel, all growed up with seven kids? Jeez. And she’s a member of the Congressional Wives Foundation? Wow. So that’s why…
…she was able to introduce Scott Walker at his kickoff. Check it. Via The Gist.
(Oh, I have some notes though. OK Rache, you’re giving us a 12. Why not dial that back to a 4?)
Man that’s sort of painful to listen to. Seems as if she spent less time preparing than delivering.
Is this what cable TV is like?
IDK, I still don’t have the cable…
And that comes on the heels of this, back in April:
The way our SFMTA has this intersection set up now is that joggers only have about 7 seconds to start crossing Masonic during a 75 second signal cycle. Assuming they don’t purposefully speed up or slow down to catch their green, that means they have less than a 10% chance of not encountering a red signal for crossing. Human nature being what it is, people jog across against the light and the resulting accident is the jogger’s fault. Check it:
Anyway, that’s why so many people are getting hit by cars at this intersection.
For whatever reason, the SFPD isn’t motivated to enforce the CA Vehicle Code upon peds, so this is the result.
If you believe in ped safety, you’d be in favor of a ped enforcement action here, to learn the joggers. OTOH, if you get paid to promote ped “rights,” then you’d disfavor a ped enforcement action here – you’d bend over backwards to displace blame. I mean, these peds aren’t “mistakenly” jaywalking, they’re doing it on purpose, right?
Choose or lose…
