I'm on BART's charter bus and it's got longitudinal wavy bench seats, blacked out windows, masques, and beads all over the place.

I took four that day and the others were normal tour buses (one was very nice, the other two were pretty old).  I guess there weren't enough to go around.

Here’s what a fastener manufacturer has to say about the problem affecting the Bay Bridge (the failed rods are ASTM A354 grade BD steel).  For decades, it was common knowledge that galvanizing high-strength steel rods was a bad idea.  Caltrans disagreed until about 10 years ago.  They’ve always been set in their ways, and they’ve always imposed their ways (more specifically, their specifications) on the design teams working for them.  They finally banned the use of galvanized A354 Gr. BD rods, but exempted the Bay Bridge from the change because it was supposedly too late in the design process. 
 
For us engineers who don’t do Caltrans work, A354 is basically A490 with fewer testing requirements.  Don’t ask for galvanized A490, either.

Oh don't worry, I won't be asking for it, no sir.

Worst chart design ever.  But it technically works, in a manner of speaking.

Why is there a BART train stopped just outside the Fremont station?

I Dreamed a Dream in Gollum's voice, sung by the son of one my managers (Mason).

“But the Baggins comes at night,
With its feet as soft as micessss!
And it steals the precious
and it turns our dreamses to shame!”
