    I can't say I hate California. I make some herpy derpy jokes about it occasionally but not much else.

    With heatstroke season fast approaching I know I'm gonna miss these 50-75 days very much.

    Believe it or not but it's true. The govt is screwed but I see plenty of people with expensive cars/home/etc. There's always $ coming in from Asia too.

    I can deal with frigid and snowy winters just fine, but summer's worst days make me question why I live here. It's all about the spring and fall, though. All about the spring and fall.

    The only other state I'd consider living in is CA. People hate it because they're jelly that their states are culturally inferior.

    You just want to live there because it is the only state that legally allows you too have azzless chaps.

    California has no hurricanes.

    Ya, I realize that but it's still a misnomer. "Florida is tropical" is like saying "America is tropical".

    Anyway I'm done bickering (for now), the thread is supposed to be about Cali hating.

    I'm from SoCal but I love the Mid-State Area around Paso Robles.
    Asian girl with a white last name? UC system stopped using race as a factor in choosing students. ONce that started, number of asians at the flagship campuses (UC Berkeley, UCLA) went up while blacks/latinos went down.

    I'll never forget the wildfires of 03' in San Diego. The sky was a smoky red/pink and ashes were falling from the sky. Then I saw children lined up to get their picture taken with Sponge Bob in a park filled with homeless people. Then I knew everything was going to be OK.
