What We Were Reading While We Should Have Been Working

Your Monday lunch break link bait.

Hyperloop Designs To Be Unveiled Today: Well, sir, there's nothing on earth/ Like a genuine/ Bona fide/ Electrified/ Six-car Monorail! [H/t: SFGate]

San Francisco Before Rent Control: Apparently, it was horrible. Landlords made decisions based on economic reasons, and sometimes the tenants didn't have enough money. [H/t: Mission Local]

Good-Bye San Francisco: "San Francisco’s tech scene has its many flaws—hiking up rent prices, diluting the city’s culture, upping levels of general douchebaggery —but I can’t help but miss the buzz of a new gadget or the latest app. I even kind of miss Google Glass sightings. Just a tiny bit." [H/t: The Bold Italic]

Ironically, Starbucks Opens Inside Castro Safeway: What's worse, we have it from a very reliable source that you can actually buy Starbucks coffee beans on the shelves inside the Safeway. [H/t: Castro Biscuit]

Let's Gay Up The Russian Olympics: Our favorite proposed event protesting Russia's draconian anti-gay laws is the "transgender bobsled" where you "start at the top as Barbara, land at the bottom as Bob." [H/t: SF Bay Guardian]
