California vanishes!

Creating Thread By Reqeust: I have, all my life, had a fantasy that one day, the entire state of California would just slide into the ocean and disappear.

Inspired by the Fukushima radiation hitting California.

It's like the 70s Superman film. Lex Luthor's desert property in Nevada and Arizona is finally beachfront!

The California of my youth has already disappeared. It isn't going to end well.

If we lose Florida, won't the US be emasculated?

Actually if you run the simulations online that rise sea level as is expected in the next 40 years most of southern Florida is under water.

CA needs to call an exterminator.

by Anonymousreply 1209/26/2013

Oh please. You flyovers have been joking/jerking off over this idea for years. Sad to say that it won't happen in your rapidly-ending lifetime.

Of course, California represents every racist Republican white cunt's worst nightmare come true: the most diverse, progressive multicultural state in the nation filled with minorities and gays. Ooooh, how scary.

by Anonymousreply 1309/26/2013

Oh and R5, farewell! Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out. California only gets a little better when racist, old white cunts pack up and decide to leave for Montana and Wyoming!

by Anonymousreply 1409/26/2013

"Flyovers" don't dream of California's demise, asshole. East coasters are the combatants in this battle.

by Anonymousreply 1509/26/2013

Obviously you haven't had the pleasure of hearing Texans/Southerners talk about how unholy California will ultimately vanish into the sea.

Though I agree, northeasterners are just as smug and that stems from some sort of love/hate insecurity since there are so damn many East Coast transplants here.

California—the state—is an awesome place. It's the Californians that I wish would all fall into the ocean.

No problema. We already know how to swim.

I remember this one from my youth.

by Anonymousreply 2109/26/2013

I have lived in Texas all my life--Austin for over a decade--and can tell you I have only ever heard this in the media, never from another Texan. Indeed, they are self-centered and often self-righteous, but this belief that people in Texas are the all-evil cunts that you dream up is as much of an indication of your own need to belittle and degrade others as it is a reflection of their thoughts on you. I don't think people spend all that much time worrying about what other people are up to, quite honestly. I know I don't give a flying fuck about what you think or whether you fall into the ocean or not.

by Anonymousreply 2209/26/2013

The irony is that while cinema loves to make east and west coast cities get destroyed because all the iconic architecture makes for a good visual (see the video montage & Tool song linked above), statistically, flyover states are the hardest hit by natural disasters.

It's just boring to watch.

R22 reminds me of a conversation between two Columbia U students I overheard a while back:

Student 1: Stupid Texans.

Student 2: That's redundant!

by Anonymousreply 2409/26/2013

People live in a bubble in California. Comfortable and wealthy whites live and shop in the best areas and drive their Mercedes through the vast decaying sprawl. The population trapped in poverty is growing at a startling rate and soon there will not be enough wealth to maintain the communities. It has nothing to do with race, it has everything to do with poverty.

Um, R25, that's applicable anywhere, you snoot.

R25 apparently hasn't heard that the middle class collapsed worse and harder everywhere ELSE besides California.

Or the big quake could do some damage due to the San Andreas fault. I've got my life raft ready in case we break off .

I read that "Last Days of the Late GreatState" years ago. All I remember is a scene at the Oscars, and most of the nominees were missing because they'd been killed.

This was a time when people believed that California could actually break off and slide into the ocean, which has since been disproved.

I'm sure R25 understands that there is a growing income gap across the country but he's not wrong in what he writes. Major companies have been steadily leaving the state over the past few decades for tax friendly pastures leaving behind swaths of economically depressed regions and the recession and housing crash only worsened things. There are a few economically stable areas (the Bay Area, LA) but try purchasing property and thriving or growing as a middle class earner. You can't.

California should stay, as we enjoy even the bad TV it produces.

Now if that sinkhole in Louisiana would suck in every "Amurican" from Mississipi to Idaho, the whole world would cheer.

I'd prefer the sinkhole swallow Congress...while it's in session.

That's pretty funny.

California the state that gave us: Richard Nixon Ronald Reagan Arnold Schwarzenegger LAPD (Rodney King) Prop 8 Prop 21 Prop 209

Yeah, looks like CA is closer to a "racist Republican white cunt's" wet dream.

r39 - New York also gave us Giuliani, Pitaki, Koch and upstate and Long Island.

Do tell what gay paradise you're posting from.

by Anonymousreply 4009/27/2013

This is obviously another in the long tired line of NY vs. Cali. threads. Girls, you're both self-important.

by Anonymousreply 4109/27/2013

R40 - so you're point is CA must be a liberal paradise because there are other places that are just as bad?

Yeah, that makes sense.

Go ahead and point to ballot initiatives passed in NY that are as egregious as the ones CA passed.

For the record I'm posting from a place where while CA was banning gay marriage, gays were getting married.

California is a very conservative place outside of its metropolitan areas.

by Anonymousreply 4309/27/2013

I'd definitely trade Cali falling into the sea for New York City falling into the sea. Buh-bye NYC!

by Anonymousreply 4409/27/2013

LA is one of the most segregated cities I've ever visited. Apparently Wisconsin holds the actual title but the casual racism and lack of black people in white areas struck me as so weird. It was a relief to get back to the south where we mix it up a little better.

by Anonymousreply 4509/27/2013

R45, that's because you're forcing your southern "white people vs. black people only" mindset in LA. LA is not a very white or black city, period. If anything it's more of a mix of Latino, Asian, Middle Eastern and they are all definitely mixed in business and neighborhoods alike. I doubt that there are even any Asians, Latinos, Pacific Islanders in the south where you are.

California is the greatest state in the union, everyone else is just jealous.

by Anonymousreply 4809/27/2013

black people in Cali did feel put upon but in my experience they were wrong. Certainly racism is far worse in other places.
