Good Morning Mission!

It’s 7:30 a.m., 50°, and things are warming up here today — we’re headed to 66°. Details for the next 10 days are here.

In case you missed it, we had a disturbing incident over the weekend: a man was robbed and died Sunday on Julian Avenue between 16th and 17 streets. He screamed for help, but apparently no one called 911. If you have any information, contact SFPD’s tip line at 415-575-4444.

A small 2.2 earthquake struck in the ocean near San Francisco early this morning, at approximately 12:46 a.m.

Hipsters beware: skinny jeans are bad for you. They can cause health issues — no, really, that’s what the Wall Street Journal is reporting this morning:

Squeezing into matchstick jeans with cheese-stick legs cannot only cause nerve compression, it can also interfere with digestion, as the Archives of Internal Medicine noted in 1993. Internist Octavio Bessa of Stamford, Conn., wrote that he was seeing 20 to 25 patients a year, usually middle-aged or older men, suffering from abdominal discomfort, distention, heartburn and belching a few hours after eating. “The diagnosis can be made easily in the office by comparing the size of the trousers with the abdominal girth. There is usually a discrepancy of 7.5 centimeters or more,” Dr. Bessa wrote, coining the term “tight pants syndrome.”

And lastly, get your pie today. Mission Pie is closing for a week to refinish their floors and install solar panels. They’ll reopen next Wednesday!
