Maxc7001: I was under the impression that there were no laws in San Francisco, at least in the Mission District, in regards to public behavior. I came to this conclusion during a three day business trip when I saw a different person shiat on the sidewalk each day that I was there.
While visiting, I also experienced the absolutely worst smell I've ever encountered which, surprisingly, wasn't any of the shiatters. It was an odious stench on the wind that had the effect of taking a nasty, greasy city pigeon and fastening it directly below one's nose with duct tape that had been marinated in beef tallow. Again, this was in the Mission District. I'm sure that the rest of SF is much nicer.

That's because the Mission is built directly over what used to be a creek. In times of drought (now-ish), the whole place smells like a mummified sewer. I think it's kind of marvelous that it's the hip neighborhood lately, what with the permeating reek. I guess the smell of patchouli immunizes the wearer, I dunno.

Why does everyone need their own personal water?

I just realized I sound like Lewis Black.

Or George Carlin, for that matter.

Failing that... just sell some dehydrated dihydrogen monoxide.

I read that as "ban bullying of bottled water" which I did not know was a problem.

dangelder: Bla bla fascism, but I'm in favor of this experiment. The costs of bottled water are subsidized by us all and maybe forcing everyone to use the municipal water will keep it from turning into something used only by the poor and chronically underfunded.

Really, really confused by any bellyaching like this.  They are making a rule on land that they own.  The same group of biatchers would scream for days if "you gubmit tell me how to rum my buzzzzness", just like they do when we try to make bullshiat gay bans illegal.
