    Well you got banned but I'm going to retort anyway: There are far more people living in SoCal than the water sources in the area can support. Someday the American SouthWest will face a major drought and places like LA, SD, Phoenix and Las Vegas are going to be hurting. That's not a sign of a good economy.

    Where does Japan get its water and why is that a sign of a good economy?

    Florida's got the exact same four climate classification colors as Hawaii on this map: http://koeppen-geiger.vu-wien.ac.at/...al_2006_A4.pdf (gotta zoom)

    You'll find parts of Florida have a tropical climate as per the Köppen Climate Classification (Aw specifically). The rest is classified as humid subtropical (Cfa).

    California is the main source of p*rn in the world.
    I hereby declare my love and gratitude for that wonderful State.
    Thank you, California.

    Also: it was under Argentine rule !

    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=4][FONT=Arial][SIZE=2][FONT=Arial]
    The War and Naval Ensign of Argentina 1818
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]In a little known incident, the privateer Hippolyte de Boucharda, commanding two warships of the Argentine Revolutionary Navy occupied Monterey from November 24 to November 29, 1818. Bouchard was French by birth, but an Argentine citizen. The purpose of the attack was to encourage the Alto Californians to rebel against the Spanish government in support of the Mexican War for Independence. Therefore, for a short time, a small portion of the future State of California was under the flag of Argentina (hoisted in support of Mexican independence), although the hoped for spontaneous "Californio" rebellion didn't result at the time. [/FONT]
    [/SIZE][FONT=Arial][SIZE=2] [FONT=Arial]Although the sun emblem had been added to the War and Naval Ensign of Argentina in February of 1818, it is unlikely that Bouchard knew about it. Most likely he didn't know of the modifications and flew the older bicolour *****ed flag without the sun on the center *****e. One of his ships, the "La Argentina," became the first Argentine ship to sail around the world flying the new national flag.[/FONT]
    [/SIZE][FONT=Arial][SIZE=2] [FONT=Arial]After his short stay in Monterey, de Bouchard's small fleet attacked Mission San Juan Capistrano in Southern California, then raided other Spanish ports in Central America[/FONT][/SIZE]

    How'd that work out for them?

    I do enjoy the trivia, though.
