[quote=TheBreeze]San Diego is an over-rated, gawd-awful, hellhole. Everyone says the weather is great here, but most parts of San Diego are like living in a sauna. People here tend to be uneducated and culturally inept. Unless you like hanging out in tourist traps with pasty white tourists, or eating at generic restaurants like Applebees, there really isn’t much to do here.
San Francisco on the other hand is a like cultural beacon of light. People there tend to be highly educated and in tune with the latest happenings in the world of fine arts and culture, in addition to being on the bleeding edge of technology. There are so many cool restaurants, art exhibits, and shows there that one will never run out of things to do.
It seems like most people I’ve met in San Diego just weren’t able to make it in San Francisco or the Bay Area and had to settle for a life here. It’s gotten to the point where I assume that every new person I meet in San Diego is generally a loser. I’ve encouraged every San Diegan I know to move to the Bay Area lest they become trapped in a life of mediocrity.
TuVu, I encourage you to move to San Francisco. I think you’ve come to the realization that you are way too dynamic for a redneck town like San Diego. Actually, I think all Piggs have the chops to make it in San Francisco and should give it a shot. I’d move up there myself, but I know my head would explode from all the cultural learnings. Nope, my place is in San Diego with the rest of the short bus riders. Don’t end up like me Piggs, move to San Francisco before it’s too late for you. [/quote]
And I’m just so shocked you’re a liberal, The Breeze . . .
Yes, the Bay Area is fantastic if you’re single (lived in SF for 5 years), but if you have kids, it can be tough.
San Francisco, as most of us know, is becoming a childless city. If it continues, they’ll have to start shutting down a lot of the schools.
Of course, you’ll have a higher concentration of educated people in SF than most other cities. The city’s punitive tax structure, lack of space, and high costs make it so that only highly compensated attorneys, bankers, trust fund kids, DINKS, and tech professionals can live there. Once these professionals have children, they then move to the Peninsula or, God forbid, the East Bay (sarcasm on).
The working and middle classes have been almost entirely pushed out of the city, save for the Tenderloin, the Mission, and Hunter’s point and for how long?
Also, the Breeze, if you’re really as caustic in real life as you come off on this site, I feel sorry for anyone you know or who must work with you.
Finally, another note concerning “education,” I don’t think it is valuable to stereotype people in So. Cal as being rednecks just because they didn’t spend $100,000 to get a joint doctorate in art history & queer studies from Stanford.
