You can tell when someone's from the Bay Area because they're so self-important that they describe local locations to the world with no context to explain for people not from the area.

Some poor bastard in Arkansas is telling himself, "At least I don't live in that shithole, San Francisco." There literally isn't a single thing on the California coast that's not beautiful. You can start at San Diego and drive straight up to the Oregon border and not see anything besides inspiring beauty. There are also better-looking women here than anywhere else in the United States. Just one after another. And legal weed. And surfing. What kind of damage must they have suffered to hate beautiful women, legal weed, and surfing? It boggles the mind.
