Greetings from Jesus Land

The world according to San Francisco. (via GeekPress)


10440. True, but that’s your marketing pitch?

We’ve all seen those signs at the edge of town, “Population 6478”.  Sometimes you see something like “Population 4997 friendly people and 3 old grouches”.  Out in the western states you see “Elevation 6042 ft.” I’ve never seen one like this. (via the Agitator)
