The San Francisco Bay Area… like no other place in the world.  Thank goodness I have a camera phone… here are all the vehicles i have seen in the last few months with odd things in or attached to them…


Having a pickup comes in handy for transporting large globes.


Yes, that IS the same truck that was carrying the big globe the day before…


Dino-mobile?  Wha-the-WHAT????

Happy National Doughnut Day

It is a very special holiday… a HOLE-liday!

This blog exists, largely, because of donuts.  The two founding members of this blog were also the founding members of Team Kreme, camping out to hail in the first Krispy Kreme in Utah Valley.   Tonight JL and Sara Francis are both in my heart.

Please, in the comments share your favorite donut establishments around this fine globe…

I’ll start out.

Krispy Kreme – the original glaze (a classic)

Dunkin Donuts – Boston Kreme (the worst thing about California is the lack of Dunkins when you really need them)

Only In San Francisco #1

Shoes shined by the homeless on a mobile chair stand?  Could happen anywhere…

Get your ipod fixed while having your shoes shined by the homeless?


Ipods and shiny shoes

We’ve all wanted to…

The other morning, I was walking down Spear Street in San Francisco, and saw this on the ground outside of an office building:

Printer out the window

You got it.  A printer thrown out of the window of an office building in an obvious fit of rage.  There’s still paper in it!

Am I the only one reminded of the movie Office Space with the scene where they steal the printer and beat it senseless in a field?  Here’s the clip (but if you’re sensitive to foul language I suggest you turn down the background music).

Obama Administration declares war on Cheerios

Guest Post from Marcus:

I’m willing to tolerate quite a bit of stupidity from Presidential administrations. Let’s face it–for much of the last decade we’ve had no choice. But the Obama Administration’s declaring war on Cheerios is crossing the line. We’re big Cheerios fans in our home and we had no idea that, according to the FDA, we were taking drugs. I’m all for enforcing the FDCA, and even for cracking down (pardon the pun–we’ll get to the President’s recreational use in a moment) on corporations that do evil things (like lower cholesterol) if they’re making exaggerated claims about their products’ health properties. But notice that the FDA doesn’t dispute General Mills’ cholesterol-lowering claims–they just say that those claims “essentially makes [sic] Cheerios ‘a drug’ by their definition.” Now, I took D.A.R.E. classes in elementary school and I remember them teaching us that a drug is defined as “any NON-FOOD substance that affects the way your mind or body works.” Perhaps if the President had paid attention in D.A.R.E. (which he didn’t, as you can see here and here and here and here) this whole silly story could have been avoided and the Obama Administration could have focused on solving some of our non-Cheerios-related crises, such as the genocide in Darfur, or the social security ponzi scheme that my generation is funding, or homelessness, or hunger, or, you know, our entire financial structure generally crumbling around us. But I’m glad that we’re winning the war on drugs–and cereal.
