Oh please.

Go to India. Go to Brazil. Go to ANY African country that's not South Africa and I garuantee you will BEG to live in the so-called "bland and soul-less" Sunbelt.

Oh and let me guess, you're a very open minded person, right?

Brazil cities aren't bland and soul-less.
India cities aren't bland and soul-less.
In fact they are full of street life... can we say the same about Dallas, Phoenix, Houston?
They are just sprawl sprawl sprawl

He did say he prefers Baghdad to Dallas so I think no use arguing further with him.

First off, I can expect someone to say that without knowing the history of how those cities have grown from the 1940's to today.

And second, neither one of those cities are nearly as dead and "soul-less" as you make it sound. Especially Houston.

It's not really humid, it's border line humid and dry air but it is flat, I'm from the valley and being in dallas is like being in another world, especially climate wise, cuz it's so flat it can be any climate it wants, one month it feels like the desert, next it rains non stop then it snows one day then a bright 75 degree day the next with snow on the ground, WTF? And there's nothing to look at except for miles and mikes of trees in dying grass.

Never been to San Diego but I've been to L.A and I'd take L.A weather over anywhere in the U.S except for San Diego.

I choose San Diego. I like Dallas, but you can't beat the weather and scenery in San Diego.

Been to Johannesburg lately? Illegal immigration is destroying it's urban core. I wouldn't exempt South Africa.
