You forgot drunken.
 
2007-09-12 05:51:29 PM
Don;t you have to flyover California to get to Hawaii?
 
2007-09-12 05:51:31 PM
I live in California and im getting a kick out of these replies...

/actually its really expensive. :(
 
2007-09-12 05:51:41 PM
did they poll people that actually lived in these states?
 
2007-09-12 05:51:49 PM
But what about the CHUDS?
 
2007-09-12 05:52:12 PM
Yay California! WOoooOO!!!


/I'm done
//I live there.

Live in California too.

I am the proud owner of a $600,000 tract home in the desert.

/wants out of here so bad.

I'd love to live in California. Wait, I do, just in Fresno.

I live in California and I'm kicking Florida and Hawaii with this reply! Suck it!

Florida: Hurricanes, old people, really humid, gators and crocs
California: Smug, Earthquakes, High cost of living
Hawaii: ...

...

Okay, I'm not sure how to bash that one.

Dear god why?
 
2007-09-12 05:53:36 PM
That's what happens when you ask people from California, Florida, and Hawaii only....

suck it elitists...

//I'd rather be in "flyover country" anyday.
 
2007-09-12 05:54:11 PM
Those states suck. The Pacific Northwest is where it's at. Nice temperate climate. To many filthy hippies, but I guess you could say that about California. And Hawaiians - don't get me started on their precious attitudes.
 
2007-09-12 05:54:30 PM
Cali and Hawaii have some beautiful areas, but the cost of living? No farking thanks. Florida? Nice weather but too many crazies and old folks for me.

/old person

I live in f*ucking Alabama. Of course I'd rather live there; hell, anywhere.
 
2007-09-12 05:54:57 PM
Okay... so the three tropical parts of the country get tagged and all of a sudden this is news?
 
2007-09-12 05:55:20 PM
"Most desirable" based on what? Highest tax rates and cost of living? Highest crime rates? Worst public school systems? Proximity to Dog the bounty hunter?
 
2007-09-12 05:55:24 PM
Florida? This must be from the department of polls pulled out of someones ass.
 
2007-09-12 05:55:33 PM
They asked people what state they would live in <b>other</b> than the one they live in. So, if you asked a Californian, that person would have to name another state.

As for the results, I am not surprised. Land values may be high, but you don't have to shovel snow.

It's a farking poll, a moron's vote is the same as a non-moron.

Minnesota FTW.

2007-09-12 05:58:05 PM
I moved from Cali to Seattle about 5 years ago. Best move ever. Cali sucks. We bought a nice house here 2 years ago for a lot less money than a crappy house in a crappy hood in Fresno Ca. Blegh...
 
2007-09-12 05:58:38 PM
I've seen so many flyover license plates lately.

Hawaii: giant fricking volcanoes.

You might try west virginia, it's a relatively poor state (low cost of living) with pretty mild weather and no frequent natural disasters.
 
2007-09-12 05:59:11 PM
Wisconsin!

They have a liberal attitude toward beer.

Florida and Southern California suck. Fraking strip mall communities.

There, I said it.

rjShadow: did they poll people that actually lived in these states?

FTFY

Never been to Hawaii but I was unimpressed with California. I live in Montana, where we have an excess of ex-Californians. Some of them must agree with me.
 
2007-09-12 05:59:35 PM
That's because people like me who hated California left. So we aren't in those polls. I *hated* California, and I was born there. But then again, I was in the high desert So Cal area, hell HOLE.
 
2007-09-12 06:00:15 PM
Yeah sure. That's why Czar always has that big farking grin on his face....
 
2007-09-12 06:00:48 PM
Texas #1! Wait, that's if they polled anyone in Mexico.

/polled a couple of chicks in Mexico before
 
2007-09-12 06:00:58 PM
/agree with rjShadow

Moved to California 4 years ago.. NOT great enough for how expensive it is almost EVERYwhere. Can't wait to leave.

Just finished a 3 month contract in Honolulu.. a horrible, horrible city to live in. The other islands didn't seem so bad.

Never been to Florida, but humidity, mosquitos, and hurricanes have never been my thing.

/Pacific Northwest ftw
 
2007-09-12 06:01:35 PM
That's why I own homes in two of the three.
 
2007-09-12 06:02:23 PM
Poll results say California, Florida, and Hawaii most desirable American states to live in. Suck it, flyovers.

My Californian poll (pole) happens to agree. Of all the ass I've been fortunate to tap, Californian ass is #1 (at least in the United States - don't get me started on the women of Argentina).
 
2007-09-12 06:02:37 PM
Yeah, but does Cali have these?

www.midwayvillage.com

Yeah, that's not too far from my house...

/oh, fark. now everyone knows where I live.
//oh, well.
 
2007-09-12 06:02:42 PM
Isn't Hawaii expensive as fark? I mean, everytime I see a TV ad that has a price in it, there's always an asterisk that leads to a footnote saying "prices higher in Alaska and Hawaii." But Hawaii doesn't have that awesome oil dividend check thing to make up for the higher COL. -1

/also -1 for all the ubiquitous Navy personnel
//-4 for the fact that it's 5 hours behind the East coast.
///+brazillion for the weather, beaches, and hot native girls.
 
2007-09-12 06:02:50 PM
I'm guessing that senior citizens votes were the main reason why Florida appears on that list...

(scrolls down)

I was right!

halfof33: They have a liberal attitude toward beer.

That's the best you got?
 
2007-09-12 06:03:56 PM
California - czarangelus types
Florida - retired Jews
Hawaii - meth-head surfers
 
2007-09-12 06:05:03 PM
These people obviously overlooked the countless "undesirable" places in California and Florida.

As for Hawaii... Too many... um... active volcanoes?
 
2007-09-12 06:05:36 PM
Hell, it almost feels like a trick designed to get me to move back to Cali. No way, butt-pipes, I escaped fair and square and am not going back.

/Wisconsin FTW
 
2007-09-12 06:06:17 PM
fark Cali, real men live in Colorado.

California is full of crackheads and butt bandits.
 
2007-09-12 06:06:46 PM
Which would explain the outrageous cost of housing, insurance, etc. Meh. I'll split my time between NYC and Minneapolis, and visit Hawaii.

OK, kind of a threadjack. I am being asked to transfer with my company from Seattle to Orange, California. Are you saying I would be better off nailing my nuts to a stepladder???

-kind of threadjack over-
 
2007-09-12 06:07:02 PM
If you plan to send your kids to public school, Florida quite quickly drops out of the running.
