Yeah, San Jose is definitely not a "stage of life" place. I'd rather people got out their teen angst elsewhere, I suppose. Berkeley is great for that.

sounds to me like a bunch of cranky old men live in san jose. do people who leave their garbage cans out an extra day **** you off?

Where I lived in downtown San Jose definitely felt like a transitional type of place, except the people weren't overly interesting... probably because there wasn't much else to do besides code all night.

Well the boring coders seem to be moving to the east bay so things should really pick up.

Bored is as bored does. If one is so astonishingly bored in SJ, one needs an environment more suitable for the ADHD personality.

Just remember: there are no boring place, only boring people.

I don't think anyone said he is bored. We are just saying SJ is a dull place in general.

But, ya, I agree. A boring person will be bored no matter where he is. San Jose or Manhattan.

I never found SJ to be a place for me to live. Not much going on down there, pretty much.

San Jose, boring? You need to attend more City Council meeting. (guffaws)
Actually I am enjoying the flamewars on the Mercury News comments page over Chuck Reed's numbers for how much the pensions are going to cost. Just about everyone is accusing columnist Scott Herhold of being on Reed's payroll for dissing the NBC investigative report as "thin gruel."

I am a City employee but I agree with everything Herhold said. Even though the current projection is lower, the retirement systems are unsustainable in its current form (and I do hate to admit that ).

Our unions like to cry foul when politicians lie, but they've done their share of lying, exaggerating and misrepresenting the truth over the years, which is why we're in the financial mess we're in. It's a textbook case of the pot calling the kettle black.
