Couldn't let PA have all the fun /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

Some of this is dated now, but it was funny once, I swear!

You know you are from the Bay Area when...

You make $100,000 a year, but can't find a place to live.
You see nothing but expensive cars because of <above.
Your commute time is 45 minutes and you live 8 miles from work.
You stop asking how much things cost and start asking "How long will ittake?"
Two-thirds of the people you know are from Boston or New York, but you are living in PST.
You know the difference between Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Cantonese, and Korean food.
Your home computer contains mostly hardware/software that isn't on the consumer market yet.
You go to "The City" on weekends but don't live there because you like your car.
You think that "I'm going to Fry's" is an acceptable excuse to leave the office for a while.
Your boss does too.
You /lost/never had/don't know how to set/ the alarm clock. You'll just get to work when you get there.
You go to an industrial-heavy-metal bar and see two guys get into a fight over what flavor of unix is better.
You own more than 10 articles of clothing that have hardware and/or software companies printed on them. (Bonus for embroidered stuff.)
You know where Woz Way, Resistor Ave, and Floppy Dr are located.
You know where Woz is.
You know 280 North runs west, and 680N runs East.
Even though Microsoft employs quite a few programmers in the Bay Area, they only work on Powerpoint, and the company is still the embodiment of Satan. (Even if their stock IS worth more than yours.)
You see a billboard that says "FGPA2ASIC" and aren't fazed.
When you need the updated Diamond Monster 3D drivers, you just walk across the street.
Your favorite computer reseller speaks only Cantonese.
Your workplace vending machines dispense "100% natural twig-bars" right next to Jolt cola and Instant Espresso mix.
You don't understand how the carpool lanes work because you normally don't commute during those hours.
You meet a friend for lunch and the first topic is where they are working now.
You go to the movies and EVERYBODY claps along with the Syufy theme music.
You have completely forgotten how to write longhand.

I've lived in worse places. In fact, I curse California on a regular basis, and I still wouldn't move almost anywhere else.

California is a great place...to leave.

Housing costs almost anywhere else is reasonable compared to the bay area.

In general, schools in CA s*ck. In Salinas, graduation rate from high school... 56%. Pretty pathetic.

Believe me, Chris, I'm not going to defend California.

However, I have lived in Wisconsin...
