DON’T MISS THIS! – Short “Oak Street Bicycle Red Light” Video – People Behaving Badly, Stanley RobertsFriday, May 9th, 2014
I’m a little too close to this one, so I wasn’t sure if this kind of thing would be People Behaving Badly-worthy.
Well, obvs, it is now:
I don’t know how intentional the Great Oak Street Airlock is, you know, how the lights are poorly timed for traffic on Oak but also poorly-timed for cyclists using the Panhandle bike path to get on to Oak and beyond. I suspect that “teaching drivers a lesson” about how they shouldn’t be driving might be involved, but it also could be incompetence/neglect.
Speaking of which, just try to find a street sign what says “Baker” at Oak and Baker these days. Shouldn’t like SFGov like care enough about tourists ‘n stuff to like put up just one fucking street sign at an intersection? Yes, but it’s been this way for months. (If I were Ron Conway AND if I cared enough I could make a one-minute phone call to get the wheels rolling on the let’s-give-Baker-street-signs-what-say-Baker-street project, but I’m not so oh well.)
Here’s the Wiki entry, for reference:
1. Mssrs. Matier & Ross of the San Francisco Chronicle appear to have pushed source greasing a bridge too far here.
Well yeah, but this kind of suppression motion would have been made and won by anybody, so I don’t know if the result in this case is proof of anything. But throwing out excellent evidence such as a video showing a domestic violence defendant hitting and kicking like that, well, that’s a rare thing. Why did that happen?
2. It happened because people at the SFPD screwed up. You see a bunch of somewhat pervy cameras all around so then you should go to a judge for permission to see if there are recordings too, right? That’s the system, baby. Of course there are reasons, sometimes good ones, for not going to a judge first. Who judged the SFPD in this case?
3. Gurbaksh “G” Chahal lucked out in the judge lottery. Governor Jerry Brown might consider these two recent appointments as “balanced” because they came at the same time, but only one judge is going to decide whether your video gets thrown out. Take a look here and pick which judge you want hearing your motion:
“SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced the appointment of Brendan P. Conroy and Braden C. Woods to judgeships in the San Francisco County Superior Court…”
4. Hiring public relations “Master of Disaster” Sam Singer during your legal troubles seems tantamount to a guilty plea. Just saying.
5. Gurbaksh “G” Chahal seems to really really care about his Wikipedia entry. Take a look at the photo with Barack Obama he bought – who posted that? Mmmm… Hey, do you know something? Do you know that a person (or persons) from Gurbaksh “G” Chahal’s companies have been caught editing his Wiki page? Perhaps Gurbaksh “G” Chahal himself edited his Wiki entry and perhaps he’s still doing it – that would explain a lot. Anyway, just because it looks as if some PR firm is altering Wiki doesn’t mean that some PR firm is actually altering Wiki.
That’s it for now.
Flying Over San Francisco on Hershey Bar Wings in Cotton Candy Skies: Youtube Video Shows Flight Above the Fog LayerTuesday, April 15th, 2014

Donald Trump Really Really Wants You to See His New (Actually It’s Quite Old) Boeing 757 – Funny VideoThursday, April 10th, 2014
Well, somebody’s got to work for Donald Trump, I s’pose. Here’s lovely Amanda Miller showing off Donald Trump’s latest wing bling.
For some reason, this not-so-fresh video clip shows up on YouTube when searching for the term San Francisco - I don’t know why.
Anywho, for DJT to call this nearly quarter century old ride “quiet” is a laugh riot. Yes Donald, it’s quiet compared with your former half-century-plus-old Boeing 727, but that’s about the best thing you can say about the matter.
Trumpy didn’t think his old airplane was heavy enough, so he had plenty of gold added inside. Is that a good thing?
And why such a small “home theatre” screen?
And Amanda, how much extra do you get paid over what you’d get working for an actual human being? Something to think about.
And Donald, what about Trump Ocean Resort Baja Mexico?
The peanut gallery:
what song is that?
That chick looks so stiff and uncomfortable…. Fail
OMG I want to bang that girl so bad it hurts!!!! owie!!!
mafia guy airplane
dang i hate gold but I REALLY wanna go on there if i wanna go to England!
San Francisco Viral Video: An Uptown Tenderloin Thief Patiently Waits to Steal a MacBook Air – Blonde vs. BrunetteMonday, April 7th, 2014
This one’s gone viral, this coffee shop video.
Watch the last part first and then watch the whole thing over again:
Note the thief’s ridiculous get-up. Is she really a blonde? Is that a wig under the beanie hat?
Note her dime store purse – see how she asks her original mark to watch it for her, you know, to establish a trusting environment?
And of what use is a MacBook without its expensive power cord?
But I’ll tell you, millions of people will end up seeing this video of the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, up there at Post and Taylor.
The victim feels that SF is “an amazing city otherwise.”
“UPDATE: If you have any more information about the girl in black and white, please reach out to the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 315-2400.
Case Number: 140281005
I am a freelance iOS developer. I live and work in San Francisco. A total tragedy happened to me yesterday. My virtual limbs (aka MacBook Air and iPhone) were stolen at a local coffee shop on Post st. and Taylor st. in SF Downtown area. Months worth of creative work I stored on my device will be lost forever, if I can’t catch this girl and get my computer back. Click here for new New Updates
PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AND HELP GET MY COMPUTER BACK!
Video found at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbrzOLh8Eb4
Location: Post & Taylor
Time of Crime: April 4, 4:35pm (The time in surveillance camera is 12 hours off)
At 3:20pm, This blonde thief comes into the coffee shop and eyes my computer.”
And now a word for the trolls:
“Thank u thank u. All my friends and good Samaritans out there who are helping me in my effort to get my computer back. Had a few people on YouTube and Reddit who claimed they know her. Yay!
The thief still remains at large. Any tips will be appreciated.
On the side note, too many trolls are flooding the posts with hateful comments and are distracting people from finding this thief. Most of those people are putting blame on me. Calling me stupid and deserving to have these expensive electronics stolen from me. I know I shouldn’t have left my computer unattended but I had false sense of security because I go to the same coffee shop every day and I know every single employee and regulars who were there when the crime happened. But how can a decent person defend an apparent thief who came in with one motive in mind, which was to steal someone’s computer. The thief sat there for an hour looking around to find her target and did not hesitate to take advantage of the opportune moment. This could happen to anyone the moment you drop your guard a little at a public place. I’m determined to find this thief for the principle of the matter and hope that no other coders/designers/any other techies around the Bay Area who love their computer more than anything fall victim to this bottom feeding scumbag bitch.
One more note, I got all my codes backed up unlike some trolls bashed me about. What I lost is some of my illustrations and most recent personal files.”

I Don’t Know Why We Spent Money on This Horrible “Never The Same” Video from the San Francisco Travel AssociationMonday, March 31st, 2014
It’s as if tax and fee payers are just giving money to SF Travel so they can enjoy blowing it doing ineffectual things.
Where’s the oversight here?
Why don’t we stop giving it money?
And hey, how much did this video cost per viewer?
