Not everyone here wants to act. And not everyone here wants to be a model or musician.

I wanted one my whole life.

Real estate is expensive here. And most houses weren’t zoned for 2 stories.

Uhhh… yeah. No. “Rush hour” is not a game. It lasts 4 hours. And happens twice a day.

10. You guys have perfect weather.

Have you ever heard of “June Gloom”? It’s real. And “summer weather” lasts for about 6 months. We have to have “Heat Days” due to extreme heat.

Other than that, it’s great.

11. All Californians are bad drivers.

Mmm… might be true of some. But a lot of “our” bad drivers are people from out of state. Check their license plates.

12. Californians are stuck up and only concerned with their appearances.

Nope. Not everyone is an atheist either.

15. Everyone does drugs (namely, pot.)

Stereotype. And media exaggeration. It’s a choice.

16. Nothing important, except entertainment, comes from California.
