    Even if you live in some chithole like Fresno or Stockton you're still paying CA state tax, CA gas tax, CA sales tax, except you get paid poverty wages and get nothing back for the costs

    CA is a great place to live if you're a member of the welfare class tho, the weather is nice and your chit is all covered

    Tried to get in during college. Never got interviews lol they say they like to hire minorities but I never got a single interview even with 3 prior internships and crazy high GPA.

    Now, I have family I care about. Peers I know legit work all day, sleepz then go back to work. The only time they socialize is happy hour. That life sounds like **** and they are renting a condo for who knows how much. I live in the barrio, so I'm saving a lot more than they are per month.

    I just talked to my friend and she said they're planning on raising property taxes even higher next year, along with raising taxes on fuel and pretty much anything else they can, while cutting police funding following the city's most violent year ever.

    Dude it's insane, at least, like you said, in California you have decent weather and the ocean. There's no redeeming factors to living in Chicago. The weather sucks most of the year, and now after all of the rioting, there's a sense of lawlessness that wasn't there before in a place that was already among the most dangerous in the country. I watched the looting this summer with the police nowhere to be seen. It was unreal.

    People constantly complain that the beaches are overcrowded and too cold.

    You can't even go into certain parts of the beaches (further congesting it) because parts of it are closed off to only surfing. Parking is a nightmare or impossible if you get there in the middle of the day.

    Inland CA 40 minutes away from San Diego is typically over 90 degrees daily.sometimes reaching 100 in the summer.

    Probably in college campuses (but even that's debatable since there are dudes dress as women around every corner)

    A lot of women here are only for hooking up, but many do not want relationships. Pro or con depending on what you want.

    Many women here are also mexican and gross looking (obese)

    Not enough housing but chittons of people who make lots of money = fiercely competitive housing market

    Groceries, cars, etc all cost about the same as anywhere else.

    I've heard due to zoning laws and the building permit system it's extremely expensive to build here too.

    That could be true some places but I'm born and raised in San Francisco and the only immigrants who have fukked up housing here are tech people immigrating from Connecticut and similar places with very high incomes making living there extremely expensive.

    I've heard due to zoning laws and the building permit system it's extremely expensive to build here too.
    And all the broke people who keep coming here and forever renting.

    Zoning doesn't allow apartments to be higher than 2 stories. And rent control keeps bumping up rent by 5% every year and entices construction companies to only build luxury apartments. I think it's stupid because I live in the barrio and people consider this a "bad neighborhood", but 2 blocks down the street, there are luxury apartments that people consider to be good neighborhoods but at 3K per month for a box.

    It isn't supply and demand or getting what you pay for, I live right next to these places, but am not paying anywhere near 3000 per month. The only difference is that luxury have even less room to walk around outside and they have tiny af interiors.

    I think he meant illegals. San Diego and slightly north have a huge illegal alien problem.

    San Francisco is "friendly" to illegals in the sense that they pander to them, but illegals won't/can't live there as it's too expensive.

    In San Diego, there are houses with 10 cars parked in there, you can guess who lives there as the yards and house are in terrible condition. Also low income apartments house illegals too because as long as 1 person is legal (typically the anchor baby) then the family gets benefits.

    Seems like people still underestimate how much we earn in the bay area.

    I have individual contributors on my team, all in their mid 20s, earning 200k+ when you factor in their stock units. And TBH they're nothing special and not in engineering either.

    Highest taxes across the board in the country. This state isn't called Commiefornia for no reason. It is damn near a Communist state. The government is part of your life in nearly every way.

    They are trying to pass a law that if like 51% of a public company does business or is in California, then California government can force the company to put diversity on their boards/CEs etc.

    Highest real estate prices because of those taxes on companies and businesses that then get passed onto consumers.


    Example, I know numbers aren't accurate.

    A 100k house to build in Wyoming will cost 200k

    That same house will cost the same company 300k to build and sell for 500k because taxes on literally everything in existence.


    It is rather miserable. My life is here, but I wish it wasn't.

    I mean, it's literally supply and demand

    High demand to live there because of weather / lifestyle / jobs

    Low or constant supply of housing

    Prices go up

    Yes, more taxes and regulations and all that mean that you keep less of what you earn but supply and demand is the reason why it's so expensive

    Thank silicon valley tech companies and hollywood. People are getting priced out
    The character "Big Deeps" is an online persona. Any comments made by the internet persona "Big Deeps" should be taken with a grain of salt and shall not reflect on the integrity and morals of the actor portraying "Big Deeps." Please respect kayfabe and respect the heel persona.

    Well yes, they are literally attempting to kill all suburbs and fill it with section 8. All of them.

    No on literally everything except 20 and 22.
