  1. are we even going to talk about how every kid in that pic is wearing crocs?
  2. burgers. seriously. have them shipped directly to you in BD.
  3. my ballot arrived yesterday. haven't really dug into the alternatives yet, though i might vote Yes on recall if there was one non-loon who would kill HSR.
  4. Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
  5. Biggest mistake in this whole FUBAR situation
  6. well.....SF did have a Poop Patrol on the payroll (at least as of 2018): "As members of the city's 'Poop Patrol,' workers are entitled to $71,760 a year, plus an additional $112,918 in benefits, such as healthcare and retirement savings, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. In August, the city announced that five staffers from the San Francisco Department of Public Works would soon roam the Tenderloin neighborhood — where nearly half of the city's homeless population is — in search of waste. The staffers will begin their efforts each afternoon equipped with a steam cleaner for sanitizing the streets. The full budget for the initiative, $830,977, signifies a concerted effort to address the city's mounting feces problem, which has resulted in more than 14,500 calls to 311, the city's non-emergency-services line, since the beginning of the year, the Chronicle previously reported."

  7. Good knife. Goodbye, Mr. Burton.
  8. i guess it’s kinda crappy to dump on someone for their personal decisions, but Hope did marry Jerramy Stevens. ::shrug::
  9. I don’t think Jill is running the show behind the scenes. Could be wrong tho.
  10. I think there’s a decent chance - 30%?* - Biden abdicates after the midterms if Ds hold the House and gain control of the Senate. * = number pull straight out of nowhere
  11. notable: the directive did not come from the Governor's office, it was from local health department officials. six weeks until folks in CA decide Newsom's fate.
  12. welp, that didn't take long: SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Health officers from Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Sonoma and the city of Berkeley announced a mask mandate Monday afternoon, requiring every resident to wear a mask indoors in public settings, regardless of vaccination status. The health order goes into effect Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. link
  13. i don't think Gavin has the political will, or capital, to go through with another lockdown in CA. a mask-mandate is on the table for sure, but i don't think it will come from the Governor's office: Newsom will put this to the County/Municipal levels and let them make decisions so he can remain above the fray. (it would not surprise me if there have already been back-channel comms between Newsom's office and County Health Directors, city Mayors, etc.). bold prediction: Bay Area Counties (Marin, Sonoma, SF, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Contra Costa) will issue an indoor mask mandate for restaurants, grocery stores, retail businesses, offices, etc. by August 16, regardless of vaccination status.
  14. back to the San Jose law, i'm curious: - which insurance company/companies would be inclined to offer such coverage? - since payments for claims would be made [presumably] to the City, do they get to appoint/approve the various polices that would be offered? - is there a provision for "under-insured/non-insured" individuals? - would claims on self-inflicted shootings be paid (as this is a large percentage of shootings)? - would policies be different for all guns, or separate for each type of firearm?
  15. “A striking new report from CapRadio and NPR's California Newsroom alleges that Gov. Gavin Newsom made false and misleading statements related to wildfire prevention efforts in the state of California.“ Link The article notes CalFire chief Tom Porter took responsibility for Newsom’s misstatements.
  16. To be fair, NOT scoring on a 7-on-5 would have been tragic.
  17. Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden
  18. again, as it pertains to CA specifically: there is a labor shortage in both construction and agriculture. and contrary to popular belief, folks who work in the vineyards and fields can earn far more than a $15 min wage.
