It's funny because I feel like I'm more of the typical Californian, being the kid of an immigrant and all, coming from a lower middle-class neighborhood but now a working professional after dropping out of high school, yet taking advantage of the California Community College System to transfer to Berkeley and now at USC for graduate school.

Please, online fellows! Tell me more about where I live!

And transplants like yourself fail to realize that indigenous demographic exists entirely in your imagination. Now, don't forget the vanilla in my latte.

I do not consider either of these cities even remotely comparible, this is about as apples and oranges as it gets. In fact one can compare census numbers, and these two cities could not be more different. DC is the countries government and nonprofit center, a national hub of knowledge workers. LA is a city with an entertainment focus, but with several actual manufacturing industries as well.

I would not consider one "better" than the other. DC is great if you have a graduate degree in economics, or are interested in pursuing a career at an international NGO. LA is wonderful if you want to go into sound design, or become a 3D animator. Different types of people are attracted to either of these cities for different reasons. Seriously, quit comparing them.

I agree. That's what I said in my previous post. LA for the creative type, and DC for the uniform, structured type. These cities are like comparing apples and oranges.

Can you believe the sh*t California lets women get away with... it starts with allowing them access to grocery stores.. what's next? Their own bank accounts so they can shop at them??? Where does it end???

EDIT: Also what is "where it's at"? In what way is that phrase being used? I'm sure I've heard whatever you are referring to, but not familiar enough with California's motto to get the reference. Or maybe I'm too familiar with it and didn't know it was weird.

And when did California adopt that back to back sports periods into the curriculum?

But anyways, yeah, bunch of dum dums in California! Plus I hate how Californians say 'for God's sake' more intelligently (aka correctly), who are they kidding? Not us!

I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not, but I will explain the "where it's at" to you. People in California love the preposition "at". They say it for everything. So when speaking of the grocery store's location, they'll say "Where's that at" instead of "What is that located" or simply "Where is it".

"Where's that at"
"Where's that at"
"Where's that at"

LAX have more A380 flights of any US airport and more international flights than Dulles.

Natural beauty, mountains, beaches obviously LA, Scenic 101

Not really fair or reasonable to measure DMV versus LA. They are in totally different leagues.

Yes the people may be fake but don't get it twisted and try to compare the two in other parameters.

Spirituality - William Seymour, Aimee McPherson, Kathryn Kuhlman, Fred Price, Jack Hayford from LA. I don't know of any Spiritual leaders whether you agree or disagree with had a impact worldwide.
well back in the 80s id i lived in Los Angels should i have trusted anchors Jess Marlowe and Colleen Williams or Jack Hayford? well i would have trusted Jack because he believes in the bible and those news people do not

So the OP has already decided that the DC area is better and everyone who thinks differently is wrong?
