syv_frenchie - I'm with you on this. I lived in SB from 1999-2003. What a nightmare. 60s houses that have never been upgraded, cramped apartments with orange shag (ewww), and landlords that never want to fix anything ever.
I think the illegal structures and setups that no one ever does anything about, and that people are actually willing to live in, certainly contributes to the crazy prices. I looked at a house with a garage, but I couldn't use the garage because someone was living in it. Then there was the "2 bdrm" house that the 2nd bedroom was actually a small closet they were calling a bedroom.
I have lived in 5 states. I really resented having to lower my standard of living so drastically just to live in SB.

So, someone calls the police on you, says you are crazy and you own a gun. Then what? Crazy according to whom? If you have, until then, done nothing wrong, how are the police going to investigate you or search your home or computer?

So, expansion ... but we can't talk about housing or parking, 'cause they're already "on it".

Does that translate to 10,000 acres to build enough solar to power a city the size of San Diego, with over 469,000 homes?

When we begin to drug our young boys into submission as early as 5 or 6, not teach them proper discipline or social skills or that life is not fair or warm and fuzzy, what do we think they will be like by the time they are 18 or 20?

I use plastic grocery bags for all kinds of things. Dog poop, icky stuff in the trash, wet clothes/swimming stuff, crafts, donations, leaky meat packaging in the fridge, etc.
I guess I will just buy boxes of plastic bags that size to use in the future.

As long as every person of every color is treated the way he has been treated every time they say anything racist - then sure.

I use plastic bags for numerous things, but one is to pick up dog doo. But it's OK for me to buy the little bags at the pet store to use to pick up dog doo?

Counting on having the right-of-way isn't the best reason for walking out into traffic. Doesn't anybody teach their kids to look both ways before crossing anymore, because all those people are now adults walking into traffic and expecting us all to slam on our brakes.

Ice skating is for girls? Better let NHL know about that. :D And being required to wear pads and/or helmets by law is completely ridiculous. How did anyone over 40 ever live this long? What, with no helmets or pads..... or seat belts? Please, enough with the nanny state!
