Great security there Dodgers
So a man beaten into a coma and now this. Great security there Dodgers
Giants fans are mostly great but their obsession with LA is not their finest quality, to say the least.
warning: a video report acompanying the story autoplays…
I lived multiple years in both cities. This makes no sense at all.
I've lived all my life in the Bay Area, always with relatives in Southern California. I assure you this has been my experience.
Northern Californians do this generally, but San Franciscans do it in particular: they insist that everything about LA and Southern California is inferior. The smog, and the traffic, of course, but more generally the culture. LA people are superficial, shallow, tasteless, not nearly as deep-thinking and sophisticated as we.
Southern Californians present no corresponding disdain for SF.
It isn't just the Dodgers. San Franciscans have a fierce inferiority complex regarding all things Los Angeles.
Los Angelans, meanwhile, if they bother to think about San Francisco at all, think, "That's a nice town."
San Francisco regards itself as New York's equal, and that South Park joke where two San Franciscans say they're more like a European city like Paris or Milan would have been funnier had I not heard that exact sentence a few weeks earlier.
#32, that sounds about right, although LA folks spend an awful lot of time manicuring their "don't give a sh1t" poses, so it's obvious it's, like, all an act, man.
Throughout the second half of the 19th century, San Francisco was unquestionably the greatest city on the West coast, a rare pearl among dusty and crude boomtowns. All the while Los Angeles was a sleepy backwater, a provincial agricultural nowhere.
No, once again if I remember my Freud correctly, the very act of bragging betrays a fear of inferiority. One who is confident in the authenticity of one's superiority has no compulsion to brag.
And SF appears to attract insecure hipster types out of the fog like a giant apple store-shaped bug light.
Indeed. Who could tell you what bands they like, but you've probably never heard of them.
Basically a person is an "insecure hipster type" if they have the temerity to talk about a band that, you, Steve Treder, has never heard of. And I would say in response that there is definitely a band you, Steve Treder, like and talk about that I've never heard of, which by you're logic....makes you an insecure hipster type.
Guess what? Some people are more into music than you, so stop being so damn insecure.
