Re: OT Humor--You Know You're in California When....



This is the part that's scary. I could learn to live with the rest of it.

But why would you want to?
Don't worry about the 300K and not being able to afford a house. Pretty soon, none of us will be able to afford a house...or an apartment.

What the heck we live in the poorest state (coastal mississippi) in the USA and the average entry level house here will soon hit the 200k mark thanks to our wonderful casion industry and to top it off the average salary here for non professionals is hovering around 8.50/hr again thanks to the casinos who have begun to bring in foreign labor to bring down labor cost even lower oh yes not to mention the mexicans who are here to grab up the construction jobs. Moral of the story is this whole country is going down the tubes my friend. Go figure.

The only upside is leaving an expensive area after you've lived there most of your life. A few years back, some of my wife's relatives retired extremely early and sold a paid for $450,000 home in LA to move to Hot Springs, AR. They were able to buy a beautiful home on a lake, and a restaurant, leaving plenty of cash left.

Only *six* cars?? Must have been a slow day.
Many years ago, I saw a guy driving an AmphiCar bail out of a traffic jam, onto a one-lane access road into the park. With a solid stream of "me too" traffic following him. Right up to the point where he drove down the boat ramp, and started across the Bay itself. There's like _half-a-mile_ of cars, with _no_place_to_go_, and *no*way* to turn around. And only the folks in first few cars have any idea 'what the problem is'. The expression on the face of the driver of the first car behind the AmphiCar was absolutely priceless.
No, I _wasn't_ in the AmphiCar, ... nor in any of the other cars, either. Just in innocent pedestrian in the park, at the 'right time'. <grin>

You know, there are some very nice places here in the midwest such that you could sell, move here, buy a bigger place and live off the interest on the rest of that half mil.

That works well as long as you don't have to live in the MidWest from Labor Day till Memorial Day.

Huh? Unless you're in the UP, most of it isn't bad. Snow is snow. I actually used to like the stuff (not enough to slide on boards, though) when I lived in NY. Go to Glens Falls to watch motorcycle ice races. Always a blast, check around Albany for motorcyclists who might be helping hold such events. Flat racing on ice is a real thrill.

My sports car club held ice trials on frozen lakes and of course tested the ice with auger holes to be sure that we had at least 6 inches. One year another club forgot to test and a Lincoln disappeared. I bought a new BMW one year ('74) on Friday and raced it on Sunday. Took a second, as I recall. The sexiest cars were the prepped ice racers with cold boxes over the carbs and studded tires. They put up a cool rooster tail of shavings.

Studs are de rigeur with motorcycles. Otherwise it's ass racing instead of ice racing.
Actually, there were 2 naked tire classes, and a couple classes for the European pattern stuff with spikes and guards. Guards or no, I wouldn't have gotten in front of one of those suckers!

Have been "snowed in" in some of the damnest places within 1,000 miles of Cleveland during the years I traveled.
These days, when I want to see snow, I open up the front door, look out at the mountain top less than 50 miles away, and see snow on top of the mountain, all the while enjoying the sunshine and 70 degree temps where I'm standing.
