Valencia shield commemorates Valencia swing

Now that all the drama has finally died down, this is where we stand…until it is reincarnated again!

  1. I don’t want to make any mistake about this, because you guys gave me so much unnecessary shit about it last time — so, are those nails (at least 6 of them) holding that abusive, piece-of-crap sign to a living tree? Not even push-pins, this time? NAILS?!

    OK, I do happen to have a claw hammer — no problem. Be seeing you…

      Yeah! Whoever put that up should have gone with some nice brass screws. Much nicer looking, and even slightly steampunk. FTW.

      So much drama about something so dumb

      • wizzer says:

        Exactly. the drama was unreal for something so utterly stupid.

        Blame it on the lazy ass hipsters who find value in anything childish and meaningless.

        and now of course some dumb ass has to NAIL this stupid sign to a living thing.

        the hipster insanity goes on.

          If you thought any “drama” surrounding the swing was anything more than tongue-in-cheek, you have no sense of humor.

    generally speaking, nails don’t do any significant harm to trees unless they are very young or severely damaged, which this one doesn’t appear to be. the nail goes one or two inches into the bark, the bark around it heals, and the tree continues to live a robust life. eventually the tree will ‘swallow’ the nail as it grows in diameter. the only complication occurs when someone is taking that tree down with a chainsaw and runs into that sucker . . .

    • In that case, why don’t we just nail everything to trees? Viral marketing campaigns, Apple ads, religious rants, plastic bags of water with goldfish, Jesus Fucking Christ, calves’ livers, piles of SF Weeklies, Bay Guardians and Examiners, old tennis shoes, discarded tires, plastic six-pack rings, dolls, broken ink-jet printers, fossilized hobo feces, your high school yearbook, 2X4 scraps, sofa cushions, Chinese restaurant menus, dead pigeons, guitar picks and sex-toy packaging.

      Since it doesn’t harm the trees, WHY DON’T WE NAIL IT ALL UP?! HUH?

    are we really arguing about nails in a tree

    I’ll nail the fuck out of that tree. with my dick.

    it only goes in about 2 inches and the bark around it heals

    who cares

    swing on my ding-a-ling

  6. Jose Arcadio Buendia says:

    If the MM crowd cared about human rights half as much as they care about a tree swing, there would be no genocide on earth.

  7. Bikes Boys Trees says:

    Nailing things to street trees is illegal in San Francisco because it is, actually, harmful to trees to shove a foreign object into them. The memorial has been removed as of just now.

    Hot new trend for Spring: nailing things to hipsters.

    I’ve noticed that people have started putting their flyers up higher on the pole in front of my house to defeat the crazy ripper lady
