  •  San Francisco Pancake (0+ / 0-)

    When I was living there in the 80s, I heard rumors of some deaths called the "San Fran Pancake". Basically, what happens is motorists go up one of the big hills really fast to get airborne like in the action movies. The "pancake" comes in when an unfortunate jaywalking pedestrian is in the middle of the street at the exactly same time and place when the vehicle comes flying down. Hence the phrase "pancake".
