    I spent some time out that way, about a  year.  San Francisco is all right for the most part, but fucking Oakland?  Forget about it.

    I'm just glad I made it out of there without being stabbed or something.

    You couldn't pay me enough to go back there. Well, you could but it would have to be a fuck of a lot.

    Yeah San Francisco is out-of-control expensive.  It's the one of the most expensive cities in on the planet.  A tiny studio apartment will run you upwards of a million dollars.  Rent for the same will cost thousands.

    I liked the South Park episode that depicted the San Franciscans farting into wine glasses and then inhaling them back out.  Sums the place up pretty nicely.  Maybe Oakland has changed for the better.  I was there circa 1992-93 so I'm sure a lot has changed since then.

    Even Berkeley area was a shithole.  Drug-dealers, gang-bangers, and assorted lunatics all over the place.  Where I lived was north of there in Marin country, over the Golden Gate bridge, which is pretty nice but every bit as expensive.  I'd never seen so much wealth in my life.  Even there tho, there were a lot of psychos.  You can't so much as spit in Northern California without hitting a clinically insane person.
