9. You guys complain about traffic too often.

Uhhh… yeah. No. “Rush hour” is not a game. It lasts 4 hours. And happens twice a day.

10. You guys have perfect weather.

Have you ever heard of “June Gloom”? It’s real. And “summer weather” lasts for about 6 months. We have to have “Heat Days” due to extreme heat.

Other than that, it’s great.

11. All Californians are bad drivers.

Mmm… might be true of some. But a lot of “our” bad drivers are people from out of state. Check their license plates.

Goes along with the assumption we’re all in The Biz. No.

Eh. That’s a very broad generalization.

14. Californians are all hippies and all have extreme political views.

Nope. Not everyone is an atheist either.

15. Everyone does drugs (namely, pot.)

Stereotype. And media exaggeration. It’s a choice.

16. Nothing important, except entertainment, comes from California.

We contribute a lot to the agriculture industry.
