However, it's unfortunate that famed actors, musicians, and artists have fallen prey to the enticement of greed before losing their humanity. I don't see this happen all that often, and it is surely hard for me to understand those who wobble between philanthropy and personal addiction. We could say that this "Californication" is the embodiment of extreme drama, the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Human nature at its finest. Boy, can it be beautiful (?)
    In other words, a state full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

    When I went to the midwest for college, I grew to appreciate home (Orange County) a lot more. People are less religious, more open-minded, liberal.. It's more diversified as far as ethnic groups and cultures go. Worldy.

    I missed how people drive better, I missed the weather, how you could be outside every day, the feeling of warm concrete..

    In california it's fast. People think fast, they talk fast, they move fast.

    We get a large portion of Californian refugees here. Unfortunately, a lot of them spend most of their time trying to make this place like the one they left, consciously or unconsciously...

    Is California painfully ignorant?

    What is Soma?


    Soma is a muscle relaxer that works by blocking pain sensations between the nerves and the brain.

    Soma is used together with rest and physical therapy to treat injuries and other painful musculoskeletal conditions.

    Soma may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

    Important information about Soma

    This medication may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Soma should never be given to another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it. You may have withdrawal symptoms when you stop using Soma after using it over a long period of time. Do not stop using Soma suddenly without first talking to your doctor. You may need to use less and less before you stop the medication completely. Soma can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Avoid drinking alcohol. It can increase drowsiness and dizziness caused by Soma.

    California sucks! If you're thinking about coming here please think twice. It's very competitive and there are tons of Mexicans. The housing is expensive and there's lots of traffic. Did I mention the smog, fires and earthquakes? We are very rude, you're better off staying where you live. Thanks.

    Good weather my ass, Southern California is very humid and the sky is always brown. As for Northern California well it's been raining for two months straight and it's cold.

    That's impressive.

    Maybe an hydroponic Californian ganja?
    See! It's not just me. Lark is... surprisingly unusual over the past 2 days. Not to say i'm not digging it, but is there some planetary alignment insanity going on? (or the drugs)
