I've been here 3 days and I've seen 0 automatic weapons, 4 cops, about a dozen hispanics, 0 of which were actually speaking anything other than English, only 1 meth'd out druggie on a bus stop, and no gas prices higher than $2.95/gallonAlpha Omicron wrote:@ wing and Solt: Once again I am floored by the fact that people in the US actually have automatics! You can't even hunt with those!
I'm not actually certain this is the same California that the media has been portraying as a coked-out North Mexico where everything costs 10x what it should.
I finally managed to procure a rental vehicle (only UHaul would even give me the time of day. So I'm driving a barebones F-150 (it has the V8, though) with a big yellow gouge down the side from someone dragging it past a school bus or something) and the rear license plate horribly deformed (I can't even FATHOM how they buckled the center of the bumper the way they did without damaging the bed of the truck). And all that damage accumulated in the first 10,000 miles. It's a *BRAND NEW* truck... So once girlie here is done her beauty nap, we're gonna go cruise... somewhere. In a rented pickup truck. With bigass UHaul decals on the sides.
