The other morning, the San Francisco Chronicle ran an instructive article giving readers tips on how to stop wasting so much food. According to the report, some 40 percent of the food in the United States goes to waste as Americans throw away an average of 20 pounds of food per month. But not the Bay Area person who decided to post his/her leftover BBQ Chicken pizza from Papa John's on Craigslist for any hungry takers. A reader sent us the ad, perhaps assuming reporters are always in the market for free food. Here is how the ad, which has since been removed, read: "BBQ chicken pizza from Papa John's is the worst pizza I've ever had. There are 3 slices of a large left, maybe you want them?" If anyone does pick up the pizza, let the Chronicle writers know — they can add "put food on Craigslist" as another tip for preserving provisions. And of course, send us a photo of you chowing down on cold slices of Papa John's, because that's newsworthy.
Not So Teeny Tiny Rent Price
It appears whoever was living in the teeny tiny tree house in Golden Gate Park has packed up and split — probably for cheaper digs in Oakland. So if you're in the market for something different and more removed from urban life, the teeny tiny tree house is officially up for rent. According to a recent Craigslist ad, the 1-square-foot studio apartment is a true rarity: For only $2,350 a month, you can enjoy the quiet nature of San Francisco. Even better, you'll be able to walk out your front door and see unique wildlife and chill with the local drunks and hippies. Outdoor communal bathroom included, PG&E and water not included. Seems like a pretty sweet deal if you are some kind of start-up squirrel. Of course, there's no telling what sort of shape that place is in after the teeny tiny hoarder lived there. It might need a good clean up and paint job.
