Perhaps feeling slighted by lowly human passengers moving its brethren “automobiles” out of the way of public transit vehicles, a tech shuttle bus done got itself stuck, like stuck-stuck, on some Muni tracks this morning.
Only a Muni Hulk or like every single person riding Muni at any given moment might be able to clear the way for the J-Church here. Sad.

My good friend Nick tipped me off to this. He texted me last week and was all, “Hey, did you know that J-Church had a song about getting hit by Muni?” And I was all, “No, no way! Rad!” Then I set about finding the song.
It’s called “As I Lie,” from the Nostalgic for Nothing LP. Click the link below to hear the dearly departed Lance and the boys lament from under the wheels of a Muni bus.
“As I Lie”
A sample of the lyrics:
“As I lie here crushed beneath the wheels of a Muni bus,
The commuters all around me crane their necks to see,
By the looks on their faces I must be a disgrace,
I can see my bike down the block”
Support musicians, especially those who sing about Muni. Buy their music. Check out “As I Lie” on iTunes.
This came into our inbox with subject: “I can beat nail clipping on Muni.” You be the judge.
Our submitter, who wishes to remain anonymous, emailed this with, “How about crack smoking on the J-Church at rush hour?”
HEY, LOOK, if real-life SNL skit Rob Ford can smoke crack “maybe once,” maybe this person can smoke crack “maybe once,” too.
As witnessed by Brady, this here LRV is a-fallin-apart. Or, you could say, “extending its possibilities.” Indeed.
Not quite as bad as the damn door falling off, but still.
Conundrum: cracking one open on the J-Church when it’s packed and you could really use one (though preferably something stronger) vs. cracking one open in relative, however visible peace.
I think it’s safe to say that the answer to this age-old question is: “Yes.”
From Samantha on the trusty Muni Diaries Facebook page (are you following us there? Because follow us there):
Thought you guys would find this entertaining. Dude was pre-partying before hitting up Dolores Park on the J. Legit.
We do find it entertaining, and so do you.

Rider Cat witnessed some truly terrible behavior on the J last week. Things got so violent that calling it “douchebaggery” is putting it mildly.
I was on the 8:15 a.m. J last Friday. There were a group of teenagers, lounging as they usually do, trying to take up multiple seats. Whatever, they do that all the time.
At some point, one of the teenagers started yelling and screaming about how some older man had “moved his leg.” The teen was sitting in the first row of seats that face the driver cabin. The leg in question was sprawled in front of him so that he could block people from sitting in the elderly/handicap seats. (more…)
