December 1st, 2015: Chained Bats
Thanksgiving morning, in San Francisco, either the police found or somebody reported, a baseball bat with nails, chained to a parking meter.
Then they found another one, and another, and another, and at 4:45 PM they found the 27th bat... on Nov 26th.
27 wood baseball bats, nails, and 27 lengths of chain ain't exactly pocket change, even at scrap prices, although the second picture looks like it's pieced together with plastic wire ties. So somebody spent a couple bucks or went to the trouble to steal all that stuff... must have been on a mission.
Maybe it was 27 places they planned to shop on black Friday, the 27th, and planned to smash the meters with the bats to save parking fees? Well I haven't heard a better reason.

There are some real Freaks in this world.

Dude, it's in San Francisco. My money's on art installation, making a lame "statement" about Black Friday.

Usually the artist wants recognition for there work. Nobody has come forward to claim credit for the installation. Now that the cops are involved we may never know who did it.

I like it. It's art.

Even though this seems to be the kind of vacuous story local TV news shows love, for some reason I saw NO mention of it on any of the 4 outlets in the SF Bay Area.

It was Thanksgiving, Jim, you were sleeping off that turkey.

Sorry Bruce, that link was a video which, being on dial-up, I ignore like texts in native languages from the Congo.

Bruce, I feel your pain. We didn't even get DSL until 2007, and subsequently made no changes to our internet service until last month. Amazing how a company's reputation varies by region...we went with Charter and now consider CenturyLink to be worse than an insurance company (predatory customer retention tactics do not sit well with me or my nearest & dearest). Where my parents live, the reputations are reversed.

I'm glad this isn't what I thought it was.
