Plus, it's only a matter of time before it completely cracks off into the ocean. California is FUCKED, everyone knows this.


Let's hope the big one comes sooner than later. If the West Coast falls off it would create jobs because we'd have to make a bunch of new maps and stuff.

The last time I was in Cali my nose started bleeding - for all 3 days I was there. I don't think I've ever had a nosebleed ever, before or after that.

Enjoy your *cough*paradise*cough* and the Golden Horde once the water's gone.

I love it when people tout the rarity of earthquakes. My first trip out to California, I flew into Sacramento to visit a girl I was dating. This was during the third week of October, 1989. Care to guess how my story turns out?

Well, my first trip to San Fran was about two weeks prior to that. I think I'm glad the quake waited until I left, I woulda been in the pit.

I would say the same shit about Oklahomo and do, but worse. I have never felt the need to attack anyone about California until you started chiming in what a great place it was. People that lived in California can usually adapt to a slower-paced environment LIKE Oklahomo with little difficulty. The same is usually never the same vice-versa. Cali is a completely different environment. I grew up in Orange County. The traffic factor alone is enough to make the most outgoing Native Oklahomo cringe in fear. Like everything I say, I speak from experience. You may think I am picking on you, I am BTW, it's called hazing. Doesn't change the fact, Cali is NOT a good place to work right now.

AS far as earthquakes... do you actually live in California? Maybe San Fagcisco and the north is different. I went through hundreds of them. Some were horrifying, others not. The riots I am referring to are not Sports orientated. I'm talking about Racial riots, Rodney King, Watts and OJ. I had fucking bricks thrown at my car driving to work. Cops watched people looting stores and practically helped them. This was 20 years ago. I can't imagine what that place has become.

The food is better, I'll give you that.

BTW, I got hazed too. Far worse than I could ever deal out to you, so suck it up. You'll live.

None of the above. Actually, we had a lovely time, entirely uneventful. We even went for a swim in her pool, once the water stopped sloshing because of the VIOLENT EARTHQUAKE IN SAN FRANCISCO. You may have heard about it ... I believe there was some sort of sporting contest going on at the time.

Edit:

Well, and that, too.  :embarrassed:

No, I think it was the Hippie 500 ... 500 hippies trying to shuffle from one end of Lombard St. to the other without getting lost.

There were some tobacco-chewin' tools at Candlestick whacking some balls with some sticks ... cricket, maybe?

Bullying and name calling isn't what I signed up for.


That's exactly what I signed up for. That's why this place is so much more fun and interesting than The Dark Side.

Orange County and San Francisco is what you see in the movies. A lot of the rest of the state is high-tech ranching, irrigated farm land and desert. Sacramento proper is about 100 miles from San Francisco proper. The '89 earthquake was barely felt in Sacramento from what the natives tell me. I was in Fresno. We also barely felt it, but knew immediately since the tv was on the World Series, and it lost feed. I have lived in California for close to 40 years, and have never been at the epicenter of a big quake. The largest quake I have felt was probably the 6+ in Coalinga in the mid-'80s which leveled that town, or a series of 4s and 5s in Mamoth Lakes, but we barely felt those. It wasn't even enough to displace anything off a shelf. And most of California is like that.

For the 6-7 million from Santa Cruz to San Francisco and the 15 million from San Diego to Santa Barbara that's their problem (fault) for living in any area with great jobs, great climate and ocean views. For the other 20 million Californians, we give up the ocean views, but keep the climate... and sure we pay for it, but we get compensated too. To me, the LA and SF people are all slaves to materialism. They all try to put on good appearances. The rest of us just want to enjoy life.

If I want to non-Indian casino gamble, ski, buy illegal fireworks, etc. I drive an hour and a half to Tahoe or Reno. If I want one to the best meals in the world at a world famous restaurant with a great view, I drive and hour and a half to SF. I have a snow-capped mountain view of the Sierras from my yard, and I BBQ nearly year round. I own one jacket, because I don't need another. I do not own any long sleeved shirts except for a few dress shirts I wear to weddings or funerals. I don't own gloves or a stocking cap (tuque?).

I have a secure job for the moment, as does my wife. I can afford my home and lifestyle. This is what I consider pleasant.
