SF SCOOTER CONFLICT: City attorney orders scooter companies to stop doing business by sixtyninenicely in bayarea

[–]razorsheldon 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The irony is, this is exactly what Uber and AirBnB did. They ignored these exact threats and fines from the city and became tremendously successful as a result.

The difference is, this isn’t the “sharing economy” and you can very easily impound a scooter or toss it into a fountain/lake.

But why won’t these elected officials spend this kind of attention and effort on the out of control heroin epidemic with needles and feces everywhere like they did with these silly scooters??

Suspect in bizarre BART triple-stabbing ID’d as SF man by txiao007 in bayarea

This guy did something very similar in Iowa 5 years ago, so it seems a bit premature to call him a local SF man:

Thirteen-year old's public rock museum was robbed, so people continent-wide offer donations and samples from their collections by Kal217 in UpliftingNews

His reaction below shows you how special this young teen is:

"If I could get the ones that were stolen back, that would be great. If I honestly can't, then I'll just have to get some new ones," he said.

"We're just going to put it back together and make it great again."

Here is the GoFundMe page to help him replace/rebuild his collection:

You got the wrong mods lined up with your scope here, but I know exactly the type you are referring to and couldn't agree more, isn't that right /u/randoh12?

Technically the site is pretty much blogspam as well. inquisitr.com just re-posts other stories with some lazy editorializing on top.

They knew Terry Crews is all the rage on reddit at the moment, so they led with him even though the post was about Brendan Fraser and it wasn't really very uplifting at all, hence why the reports were probably made that caused it to be automatically removed.

/u/mportz explains what rent control is and why virtually all economist agree that it's a bad, counter-productive policy by CyclingIsLove in DepthHub

[–]razorsheldon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Properties have appreciated dramatically in SF over the years but property taxes have been 'controlled' via Prop 13 in the same manner as rent control. Which is all fine and dandy until there is a sale of the property and the assessed value resets to current market prices.

If you reference San Francisco, you had better also reference Prop 13 and the significant impact this variable has in the equation.

At what point do people notice the more money is thrown at this issue, he worse it gets. Jennifer Fiedenbach does nothing productive to address the real issues at hand and only resists any attempt at improving a situation growing worse each year.

Anonymous NFL player donates bone marrow to local man by razorsheldon in nfl

Pretty incredible given how invasive the bone marrow donation is and the impact it might have on an elite athlete's training etc.

How the hell does this not have more upvotes or comments!? What an awesome outcome on a number of levels!

Here it is. I looked and looked and got a tip that Inside the NFL had it. Sean Payton's reaction to his season ending. by IamUltimatelyWin in minnesotavikings

[–]razorsheldon 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Nobody here is smug in the slightest, and everybody respects and is anxious about going into Philly. This post and the comments here are purely karma, retribution, redemption etc... all stemming from the NFC Championship game in 2009 that has been etched in the memory of every Vikings fan that witnessed it.

Sean Payton was banned for a year and Gregg Williams was banned for life until he appealed. That speaks for itself. Now go bait some other team’s sub, as that little troll tactic doesn’t work so well here.

BART police officer fatally shoots someone outside West Oakland Station by OMGROTFLMAO in bayarea

[–]razorsheldon 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Here's what I pieced together from the two witness statements gathered by the media:

(From Witness 1 inside the Mexican restaurant) Younger guy and older guy are arguing and walk into the restaurant. Younger guy is filming older guy with his cell phone and yelling at him about what he did to some kids. Older guy is shielding his face while trying to walk away. They both go outside and she hears one gunshot... a pause and then multiple gunshots.

(From Witness 2 outside the Mexican restaurant) Younger guys shoots older guy in the leg, BART cop comes running over from the parking lot and shoots the younger guy dead on the scene.

Based on the non law enforcement gun recovered at the scene and the witness statements, it seems a personal dispute led to a non fatal shooting right next to a BART police officer who engaged and killed the shooter.

South Carolina lottery error could lead to $19.6 million in winnings by msiekkinen in offbeat

[–]razorsheldon 16 points17 points  (0 children)

If this happened at a casino, they'd nullify every winning ticket and claim there was a malfunction. And nobody would bat an eye, because that's a private entity. But if the same thing happened at a public entity, suddenly paying out $20 million is a realistic option because who is going to complain about such a payout?

[–]razorsheldon 13 points14 points  (0 children)

This is an egregious amount for nothing more than a slight shove and a personal dispute that comes down to pride, yet Oakland taxpayers and the neediest citizens living there will pay the price yet again for these shenanigans. How can there ever be progress when you only see ridiculous outcomes like this?

Since gas stations are the primary targets for card skimming machines, I would err on the side of this being sketch.
