Boston.com should really just leave satire to the professionals.

Yes, southern CA sucks, but that isn't the subject of the article.

Let me guess, you're one of those otherwise moderately intelligent and educated people who actually believes that "California will fall into the ocean"?

I so want to photoshop the picture with a more accurate representation of sizes (both physical and otherwise) of the Zakim and Golden Gate bridges, but I can't justify the time it would waste.

That sounds more like what people who have _never_ lived there but have an Opinion (with a capital "O") usually say.
Posted 03/26/2015 11:38:33 EDT
You pretty much always get a moderately hot sunny afternoon during the summer. And it's never gross and sticky like it is here.
Posted 03/26/2015 11:37:30 EDT
They won't care. The thing that a lot of people don't realize is that Earthquakes are actually pretty rare (unlike mega-blizzards, which we seem to be having about every 3 years here now... each one m more »

You've clearly never been there, since it's actually sunny every single afternoon (more overall sun than boston actually). But enjoy the view from your triple dekkkah! more »

Southern CA and Northern CA are very different. I find it odd how New England people have all of these strong opinions about a place that they clearly know nothing about. more »

Boston's getting the first 3 things too. AND you get the crappy weather to go along with it! more »

Any place that has gentrification is "systematically removing a minority group from its city.". San Francisco is not unique in that respect. more »

So you avoid these "liberals" that you hate so much by living in Boston!!!??? more »
Posted 03/25/2015 08:15:03 EDT
Maybe not, but the areas about 20 miles south of SF are as close to "perfect" as you're going to find on this planet. more »
Posted 03/25/2015 08:12:32 EDT
...and Boston stands out for having white people so explicitly and emphatically saying that they didn't want their children to go to school with the black kids. What's your point again? more »

Boston should take notice of this as housing prices here (though significantly lower as you mention) are closing in. If they ever reach parity, Boston truly _will_ become "SF with bad weather". more »
Posted 03/25/2015 06:13:07 EDT
That's really it. I wouldn't worry about the "big one" so much because they're more prepared for it than any place else in the world, but the cost of living is unbelievable (even compared to Boston). more »

A European or Chinese person must think it's hilarious seeing someone actually make such a strong distinction about San Francisco's 200 years of history vs. Boston's 400. We're both "spring chickens" more »
Posted 03/25/2015 06:05:44 EDT
uh... if you really want to take an honest look, I think Boston and SF both have an unfortunate history of excluding black people. more »
Posted 03/25/2015 06:04:14 EDT
For anyone who's actually honest about it (excluding those who actually like long cold winters and sticky summers), I think SF is preferable for most reasons it mostly comes down to the cost of housin more »
