California is probably a pretty nice place to live if you are a billionaire.

When I was in electronics school, we had a lady in the course who had moved to California in 1947. She said that from 1947 to 1967 it was a pretty wonderful place to live and you didn't need to be rich to live there either. She said they eventually had to move back to the Midwest because of the cost of living.

As late as the 80s or 90s you didn't need to be that rich to live here. Now it's ridiculous.

Looks like Bill Gate's Summer house.  His one up in Renton is huge.

Part of the problem is some parts of California the weather is perfect temperatures and sunny pretty much every day of the year and not too far from ocean or you can drive not too farand see the desert or the mountains. And you have far too many people who want to live in a perfect climate...

The hilarious thing is that it's full of socialists that don't want there to be any billionaires. Who's protests and activist actions are funded by billionaires. 

 

This state is so bass-ackwards it's not even funny. 

 

Edit: I just watched the video.

 

Holy crap does the house come with AirWolf? #Worth

There’s a new development in Dana Point CA with 60-100 new homes all sitting on the palisade overlooking the ocean.  Every house is $8m to $32m.  Every. One.

Does anyone know of the estimated value of US's Royal Palace?

Two things:

Firstly, what is that boat for? Can I sail it in the pool?

Secondly, do the seats in the cinema recline far enough to be used as a continuous slide? Cuz if they don't I won't even consider buying!

That was actually my question. I think it's the same helicopter?

I was stationed In California for desert training in the Army and also spend another few months as a researcher and tourist there.  I really like the landforms and biomes that California has. However, my experience with the people was hit and miss.

I've been through all of the 48 contiguous states and much of lower Canada. The friendliest people I found were in the Pacific Northwest (especially Oregon and British Columbia), the Western Midwest, and Georgia. Generally, people are friendlier where there are fewer of them. Although enclaves of isolated people of certain mindsets can be unfriendly, for the most part I've never had issues in rural areas. When I was doing field research I had ranchers put me up in their house and feed me. When I was stationed in Germany I found the people there pretty friendly too. Of course, that was a long time ago so things may have changed.

I love it here because of the geography, coasts, and climate.  I've lived in many places, and in those regards California has been one of my favorite place to live.

I hate it here because of the politics and the "agree with/give it to me or I'll call you a [insert phobia or other insult here]" mentality of so many.  I've never been so anti-social in my life as I've become since living in California.

I'm fortunate to be able to absorb the escalating cost of living, but it has made things unduly difficult for a lot of other people.

How right you are +1

 

After watching the video:

  • Wow that's a very ugly looking house
  • Who needs or even wants half of this stuff?
  • Why put so many cars in your living room?
  • Who puts 2 TV sets right next to each other ?!?!?!
  • The walls look like they're made of glass so you got no privacy
  • Yeah, that's more candy than anyone will eat in a lifetime
  • Seems to be a lot of pictures of random people
  • The dinning, the pool area, the theater, all of them seem to have so many chairs as if they're expecting a party every day
  • That looks like a fire hazard in the bedroom

Overall, I would have little interest in living in a place like that.

Been there many many times.  Most of that state is cool. North should secede from S Cal. But hell I don't live there so I guess I should not judge. OK?

 

However I will stick with my statement...massive urbanization is not cool. Smaller is better.

I like rural areas much better myself. Currently, I live in a town of 400 in a county of 3000 and still consider it a bit too overpopulated for my taste. I've lived in cities though. It all depends what you are doing and if you can get out of them easily. I taught in Portland, Oregon but I was right next to a greenspace corridor trail and didn't have to drive 5 miles to the college. I routinely saw deer, coyotes, and even a cougar right next to my apartment. I also worked for a year as a paramedic in Kansas City; I wouldn't like to live their permanently but it sure was an interesting experience.

I kinda went over the top by calling large urban cities "crap". That was overkill and not a nice thing to say. I have had some great times in the big cities I have visited...and I have been to most of the big big ones. However I am rather Jeffersonian in my feelings about this. He felt big cities were more prone to breeding crime and poverty and other societal ills. I agree and statistics back that up. Problems are magnified when things get overly big. It's just the nature of the beast. You are like Daniel Boone. When things got so crowded that he could see the smoke from his neighbors cabin he felt crowded and it was time to move on. :Smile_teethhappy:
