Is it true that if you move to NorCal your fruityfactor goes up? This guy from Norcal yesterday commented on me listening to Sublime, saying I've turned "hella yuppy" - it was so homoerotic it put Colin Farrell in Alexander to shame - I really just wanted to beat him to death with a club.

Sorry, off topic.

Wow, did this thread really turn into a Nor-Cal vs So-Cal tournament? I honestly enjoy both parts, just choose to live in Nor-Cal, born and raised, but have many friends in the So-Cal areas.

There are always different strokes for different fokes when it comes to both areas.

I will say "Go Kings, Athletics, and Raiders"............

You're all hella dumb.
