Of Craiglist's many valuable services, perhaps the most important is the Missed Connections. Some can be as simple as a quick description of a person and a setting, and an explanation of how the poster would like to meet up again. Some can be more convoluted, with directions, pictures, maps, and even a secret code or two. And some are painful yawps aimed at the entire universe, decrying the sad events that befall the emotionally over-available. Below are some of our favorite Missed Connections, culled from San Francisco's Craigslist:

In search of a person to get weird with...

We've never heard of this kind of Pinocchio obsession, but apparently this young broadcaster really needs a fix.

The Dyke March provides endless, or at least three, opportunities for potential hookups...

Sounds like the pincher may have been looking for a pinch hitter.

Ahh, straight love at the pride parade...

The Pride parade and related festivities seem to bring out the lover in everyone who attends them, and this odd couple is no different. How about a nun and a calendar boy?

Is part of standard hang-gliding training how to spot dogs from the sky?

The BART strike isn't just making it hard for people to get to work...

Apparently it's also making it difficult to watch people and wonder who has done what on those sometimes oh-so-nasty train cars.

Let us know which one of this week's top five you liked the best. More to come every week.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
