Just checking. Nutty California is not bigotry--but that's how they do it in the south is? According to a nutty Central Californian who makes shit up all the time.

I shouldn't expect you to grow up anytime soon.


NW keeps thinking he has a gotcha, and keeps failing. For proper use of the English language, what Techno and I were engaged in--when you butted in--was regional chauvinism. You can look it up yourself.

Oh sorry, I didn't know this was a closed conversation.
Get over yourself, as you try to hide behind a dictionary.
BTW, I'm a California native, and this is one of the two nuttiest states in the union, the other being New York, both state governments do the best they can to "monkey up" everything.

Hmm, the point of using language with some precision is to actually communicate. That point is clealrly lost on NW. Liberal hating? Not “bigotry.” A negative comment by a “liberal?” Always bigotry. Not.

I wonder when the liberals in DC will demonstrate to take down the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, etc., etc.?

Half the country has gone nutty.

Take special note of the first category, > Adults lacking basic prose literacy skills. Released today by MSN news.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On September 8, 2018, countries around the world will celebrate International Literacy Day. The event shines a spotlight on global literacy needs and focuses on the strategies and resources needed to spread literacy around the world.
While the event will primarily highlight literacy needs in developing countries, there is still much room for improvement in many parts of the United States. Reading proficiency and activity varies significantly from state to state and is affected by socioeconomic factors such as income, educational attainment, and the quality of public schools.
To identify the most and least literate states, 24/7 Wall St. compiled an index of several measures related to reading proficiency, access to reading materials, and library usage. These states are listed from the most literate to the least.

44. California
> Adults lacking basic prose literacy skills: 23.1% (the highest)
> Adults with bachelor's degree or higher: 32.9% (14th highest)
> Public libraries: 2.9 per 100,000 (2nd lowest)
> Registered library users: 57.4% of pop. (15th highest)

35. New York
> Adults lacking basic prose literacy skills: 22.1% (2nd highest)
> Adults with bachelor's degree or higher: 35.7% (9th highest)
> Public libraries: 5.4 per 100,000 (20th lowest)
> Registered library users: 54.2% of pop. (21st highest)

Because my primary oncologist is in LA, my local oncologist suggested I move there. After I quit laughing, he asked what was so funny. That's when I realized that
HE WASN'T JOKING!

I told him about the sammich, and my opinion of cities and of CA in general as represented in this forum.
