1 I am going to say something different, albeit from a prejudiced perspective...the natives. Whether they have been there for years, or born/raised in LA itself, they act incredibly self-centered. LA really is a wasteland, like a few other folks said. The natives of this city are purely nuts. Maybe not all of them, but LA at one time was also known (in my own words) as the richest, whitest, WASP city in America. LA had a scary history once these people came from the east to settle. The city grew, but it was always "suburbs in search of a city." With the boom came doom. I really do not think LA ever had "glory/salad days." Then came the 70s, 80s, and 90s. There were race riots, more sprawl, more smog, and the superficial natives act as if their grass is greener than the rest of America. I will admit, when most of your days are "sunny and 70 something," I guess the natives have rhyme and reason to act like that. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 12, 2013, 9:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I wouldn't say I hate L.A., exactly. I'd say instead that it's a town best experienced in small doses - maybe once a decade or so. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 7:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I remember hearing about its clouds of smog and had always thought that to be an exaggeration- until I saw them for myself flying in when the plane refueled! I had had the amazing experience of having flown all the way across the USA without a single cloud in the sky from Chicago on and had gained an appreciation for pioneers in covered wagons having had to cross vast tracts of wastelands in which I could see no water sources and very few plants from my vantagepoint - but then I hit the LA city limits and BINGO ugly brown and black clouds of smog were hanging there despite being right next to the Pacific Ocean! Yeah, it looked as though some kindergartner had dipped cotton balls into mud and soot and hung them over a cityscape! And the famous Hollywood Sign? It seemed to be perched on a tiny mountain island in an ocean of city sprawl. Yep, all that was enough to convince me to never move there- although one day I may be tempted to visit it to take in its Spanish colonial, post-Gold Rush+ movie capital history. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 4, 2011, 3:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I think it's disgusting how people litter beaches, ESPECIALLY when their trash happens to be a used diaper. I also want to apologize to anyone who was eating as they read this. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 2, 2011, 7:57 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Robert, some of the beaches in L.A. are beautiful and some are dirty and gross. Totally depends on which one you go to. Unfortunately, all of them are relatively overcrowded during the summertime and weekends, so good luck finding parking. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 1, 2011, 9:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 With a name like Dolfan, I thought you'd still be in Florida. Let me guess...the heat got to you. Yes, it gets ridiculously hot down here. Thank God for the AC. As for California, they're known for their crazy and ridiculous laws. But, like everyone here, I also heard it has gorgeous beaches. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 1, 2011, 8:12 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Kingbk, you made the right choice, and confirmed what I'd figured all along about LA and California in general. South Florida has beaches and sunny weather too but trust me, you wouldn't want to actually live there either--and Florida has no tax on groceries. I got out of there in '97 and haven't been back since. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 1, 2011, 5:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 DolFan, not going to lie, the beaches and weather were what made me move out here in the first place. I enjoyed living out here for a while, but after you realize all your paychecks go straight to rent, that living in a shoebox for $1500 a month is considered "cheap," that most the people out here are fake, flaky, and never will be true friends, that it takes 20 minutes or more to go even five miles somewhere, that you're working your ass off most of the time, so you don't even get to enjoy all the things there are to do, then you realize it's time to move. Four years was plenty, now my wife and I are ready to settle down somewhere for a long haul. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 1, 2011, 11:22 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 What made you move to the land of fruits and nuts (and I'm not talking about food) in the first place? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 30, 2011, 5:23 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Been out here for four years and leaving next month. A sprawling wasteland of smog, traffic, plastic, flakes and everything is overpriced and expensive. Sunshine and beaches can only go so far sometimes. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 29, 2011, 7:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
