Attention Tour Bus Operators: After a Fender-Bender, Get Your Rigs Out of the Middle Lane of Oak Street – Don’t Be Calling Your Insurance Agent

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

So, yes, you had a little fender-bender with your big bus, and yes, it was related to the endless tinkering ┬ádone by the SFMTA MUNI DPT DPW bowl of alphabet soup. So what! It’s not that big of a deal. CSI San Francisco isn’t going to send it’s Go Team and the NTSB isn’t coming neither.

Therefore, get your bus out of the roadway, pull it over. Sure, take a couple iPhone shots first, sure. But then get outta the way. THIS IS SFPD POLICY. Don’t you know this? You had at least two employees on the scene, why not have one, I don’t know, let’s call him the Driver, drive the bus to one side of the road or the other. Did you call the SFPD? IDK, but if you did, don’t you want them to show up? Now, how are they going to do that if you block the road, which, as stated, is a noteworthy bottleneck already, due to ongoing construction efforts, for umpty-ump minutes?

How I Can Tell How Alluring a Bay Area TV Weather Woman’s Breasts are, on Any Given Day

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Ooh boy, I can tell I’m in hot water already, so I’ll have to pay off on this headline tout de suite

So there I was, years ago, riding up Market coming home from work, as I am want to do, and I noticed an ad, 17 foot tall, for a local network affiliate’s new weather woman and I thought, wow, that’s not very Bay Arean, it’s more old-school, 50′s-style, come-look-at-our-beautiful (that was the actual word on the ad) new weathergirl.

So I took a shot of the ad and posted it.

So now, years later, I have a rough gauge of how many people are Googling her name at 5:00 or 6:00 or 7:00 AM on any particular day. On a day she’s wearing something particularly revealing, this site will get hundreds of visitors looking at the old post, which means thousands(!) of people must be Googling her name that morning – isn’t that a lot?

As stated, this has been going on for years. And this isn’t a small effect, this outfit-based popularity, it’s a huge effect. So, a frumpy outfit might generate ten times less “interest” than, how shall we say, a non-frumpy, more revealing outfit.

Here’s what it looks like when that old post is bringing in 17% of the audience to this small WordPress blog:

Now I don’t look at the TV news myself, as I don’t have cable and I live in a high multipath area, what with the hills* and all, but this is my peek into what’s going on in the news biz, TV-wise.

END OF LINE

*We call them** “mountains,” our hills a few miles from the ocean what are less than a fifth of a mile high…

If You’re Worried About Your Bike Getting Stolen While Shopping at Lucky, Just Bring It In With You No Big Deal

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

I’ll tell you, I’ve parked my ride in front of this Lucky, the so-called “Ghetto Lucky” of the NoPA Western Addition without locking it up about 20 times now. With no trouble.

It would never occur to me to just bring a bike into a gro sto…

Here She Is: Le Grand Doyenne de San Francisco – Cruising the Financh with Driving Gloves in a Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Saw this woman a couple years ago on Battery in the Financial – very striking, like something out of a movie.

Anyway, I just saw this ride parked on the street in a location that would make you say, “Well of course that’s where this lady lives.”

Photo: A Game of Frogger But In Real Life on Masonic in Front of Trader Joe’s #100 – Who Will Be The Next To Die?

Monday, June 9th, 2014

These people parked across the street from our popular Trader Joes on Masonic, as many people do, ’cause the TJ’s parking lot is too small, ’cause that’s what nearby residents wanted.

Our Planning Department created this disaster and then moved on to more important work, such as the failed 8 Washington project, oh well.

Fixes have been tried, but still we’ve got this parade of customers jaywalking back and forth across this stretch of 30 MPH Masonic, thusly, from a few days back:

Cars were coming in the fast lanes both northbound and southbound, so their only choice was to wait for the black car to pass and then sprint behind it.

This game has been going on for years, with many shoppers playing, and some getting hit by vehicles.
