Funny article!

I have lived in the Northeast my entire life and fit 10 out of 19 things on this list. So, I guess that means I'm a superior a'hole from the Northeast.

Can anyone else relate?

My favorite one is that we basically have a license to not have to be friendly. I also like the one about how CT people complain about CT, when in fact, it's a perfectly fine state.

Pretty much. I thought the CT part was about everyone else. Ragging on CT is a way of life, especially the Jets fans

That list is more accurate about the West Coast people who on CD think they are way more superior to East Coast all the ones except they claim to be a bit more laid back and relaxed.

Yeah I don't understand that. One of my lifelong best friends who is a New England native, recently lived in San Diego for two years and didn't like it. She said that most SoCal natives (and transplants even) act like SoCal and California in general is paradise. She found it laughable, and even came to realize that many, if not most of them, rarely, or don't even care to travel outside of California. She said that California is not paradise at all.

Last month, she and her husband moved out of San Diego to Orlando, FL and so far they are much happier. They find it refreshing to live in a lush, green, warm environment with affordable housing. She also complained that SoCal was quite superficial, as well as dry and not quite green enough. With the pending 100-year drought just beginning, and the water restrictions that come along with it, it is seriously something to consider if deciding whether to move to the Southwestern U.S. in general. But ultimately it was the extreme cost of living, culture and somewhat dry scenery that made them crave to come back east. She also complained that SoCal doesn't get warm enough, and the Pacific water was so cold.

My friend from Orange County CA recently told me she is so lucky she lives in "paradise." I was like... uh huh.

Personally I equate paradise with the tropics but that's just me. Southern Florida, Hawaii, the Caribbean, Pacific islands.

Yeah. I have been to SoCal and spent about 5 days there. After that, the novelty wore off. In fact, it's not even an option for me, because of the extreme cost of living and my goal of purchasing a home soon. The drought situation sucks, too.

I cannot imagine SoCal being more expensive than Fairfield County for purchasing a house. I'm maybe wrong, but I don't think you're fully aware of the properties out there. If you try to purchase an ocean facing property sure, but somewhere in Riverside is basically dirt cheap.

Of course, I'd never want to live in Riverside, that's another story.
