4/04/11 - April Pools

Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

4/04/11 - April Pools

Post by ampersand » Mon Apr 04, 2011 7:41 am

You know you're in Southern California or Florida suburban community when:
  • Every house has a pool.
  • Every house is adjacent to a golf course.
In fact, I happen to know that one of the communities near Greg's house built the golf course around the houses.

This is better than here in the Midwest where every community over 500 people feels like it has to have a country club, even if the club can only handle nine holes.

That's nothing. While these probably aren't in California, I could imagine loving this one:

We're in Northern California.

Well we always get classified as northern. They consider Bakersfield and Fresno to be central.

I'm a Silicon Valley person, and I always thought of the North/South California divide being somewhere between Silicon Valley and Monterey.

As a former San Diegan, I claim that there is no Central California and that northern Cali starts at Bakersfield. Those snooty bastards.

Ok, I guess it's just us uncivilized country folk that consider cali three states. Heck, most of us consider most of california as "southern" and a few of us will consider the "central".

California consists of 3 regions : San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Everything else is desert wasteland, sandy beaches, or ski resorts.

As a former Vandenberg AFB resident, I declare that I lived on the Central Coast area, and it is NOT northern Cali. Sacramento and Lompoc (and Santa Maria/SLO area as well) are like two different worlds. And now I want some good ol' Santa Maria Tri-tip BBQ....

Absolutely not! I've never lived in Nevada! Most of Lake Tahoe is Californian.

Anyway, San Francisco, Sacramento and Lake Tahoe are in almost a straight line going across the elbow of California. So whatever we decide on Sacramento is what SF and Tahoe will be. =D

I'd say secede and become Nevadans for the lower taxes and gas prices, but we don't want San Fran.
