I was riding through San Rafael, and had a slight detour around – hey, that’s something I don’t see every day! – railroad track construction for the final southern bit of the SMART train to Larkspur. Although where they were actually doing the work was at least 100 yards away, the sounds were transmitted down the rail – space zaps of the welding, buzz of grinding. When they finished the joint, the big yellow machine near where I was stopped picked up the end and pulled it out along the rollers to the next spot they’d be putting another section on. Very cool. I’m not sure what they do to get in the ground where it crosses streets, but it was neat to see part of the process. I have not ridden the train yet, but have heard good things about it, mostly from people who have gone on weekend excursions, but also from a co-worker who is taking it on a regular basis.
Will any of our current board games survive to be puzzles for someone in the future?
Some serious next-level knitting!
Pretty mind-boggling that these were actual ads, but the role reversal really highlights the stereotyped sexism.
