The Drone Bros of Golden Gate Park: Whose Drone is Hovering Three Feet from Your Bathroom Window on Fell Street? This Dude’sTuesday, May 26th, 2015
Here’s the scene without any arrows pointing things out:
And here are the arrows:
And here are the bros:

The drone slowly increased altitude to rooftop level and I didn’t stick around to see where it went next.

Frisco Disses Texas – Flies State Flag Upside-Down at Civic Center in Front of Historic City Hall – Poor Tech-sas!Thursday, May 14th, 2015
Here’s the scene down in Civic Center, with 18 flags in front of the Highest* Classical Dome in the Western Hemisphere (and fifth-highest in the world, I believe):
You can see the state flag of Texas camera left, red side down, as it’s supposed to be.
But here’s how things look these days:
See? It’s flying butter-side-down:
IDK if this is being done on purpose, as a dig against Our Great Competitor, or if this is being done out of ignorance. It’s been this way for a while – this isn’t just a one-day thing. (Maybe we’re still mad about losing QANTAS to Dallas/Fort Worth.)

If You Want an Urban Fun Run, But Not Too Urban, IYKWIM, Then Enter the BtoB – Look, It’s 90%+ White People!Wednesday, May 6th, 2015
I can’t believe this is an official Bay to Breakers promotional image, but there you go:
The only thing whiter than this in the 415 is the collection of Western Addition millionaire homeowners who cry about the BtoB each and every year.
(Oh what’s that, you’re a “leader” of NOPNA, but you’re not a aging white millionaire home-owning fussbudget? Well then I’d like to meet you, ’cause you’re a rare bird indeed.)
Welcome, once again, to Frisco, BtoB!
White Over Raspberry – The Smartest-Looking GO-4 Intercepter Three-Wheeler in Town – But Is This Legal?Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015
Can you legally perpendicular park your Frisco Family Car in a parallel parking area?

This kind of thing is agin the rules if you used a four-wheeled SmartCar, but SF could have special rules for three wheelers…
