The rapture never materialized last weekend, at least not as predicted by Harold Camping. But 1/6.7 billion (as seen above) ain’t too shabby.

Brian sends the following dispatch:
Just a quick note about a new (or new to me?) type of crime on Muni.
. then he came out later with a few items.. possibly the stack of transfers and something else? He was definitely NOT a MUNI employee. Afterwards he just sort of walked away, nonchalant like nothing happened. I think most of the other people on the platform were confused like me.. thinking, “Wait, did that guy just break into a active train?”
We’re checking with SFMTA and SFPD about whether this has been reported. Stay tuned.
Have you seen anything like this?

“San Francisco is full of characters.” Yes, exactly. For better and for worse.

Rider Fannie saw a scary incident this morning at Church station:
Around 8:45 a.m. I got on a train that was quite full, after waiting for three full trains to pass by at peak rush hour. Then, this chick got her arm stuck in the door. Like in the sliding track…her left arm and elbow. I watched her scream with hysteria. Originally, she’d been very busy trying to cram on to the very full train, and getting angry. I would have helped her, but there were more than three people already trying to do so.
Somehow, they got her arm out. She had a pretty big bruise on the bone of her elbow…She was distraught (and I would be too).
They made us get off. (As in, empty out the entire two car train)
And some of us filled out information cards (as witnesses).
And then waited for two more trains before getting on.
Lesson learned: Muni vehicles are not worth (almost) losing a limb over.
Yikes. I’ll remember this the next time I try to jam onto a train…
Found this photo in our Flickr account the other day. It touches off all sorts of geek nerves in me — from the suggestion of speed and motion to the wide-angle aspect and blurring of imagery. Great photo by Rick.
Well, nothing much going on this weekend. Ah, we kid. Hell, the weekend seemed to start early for most of you (not us!), so you’re probably reading this Sunday or Monday. Hope you enjoyed it.
Weather in the city should be mild by July standards. Go forth … on the fourth. [the sound of fellow Muni Diaries editors beating Jeff]
This video came by the way of @kerouaconacid via Twitter of a lady belting out some serious tunes at the Church Muni station yesterday.
Wow. I suspect I sound just like that in the shower. Nice job capturing this candid performance, @kerouaconacid.
