    People have tried to split Cali up over 100 times since its been a state.

    I just want to know which investors this venture capitalist is embezzling money from to fund this pet project

    There's actually some pretty solid reasoning on why splitting up California makes a lot of sense. I was listening to a podcast recently that discussed the idea.

    The biggest point, to me, boiled down to the fact that each state only gets two Senators. So Californians (Approx. 39 million people from a quick Google search; most populated state in the country) are extremely underrepresented in the Senate compared to, say, Wyomingtonians (Approx. 600,000 people; least populated state in the country).

    You can go a lot deeper with that reasoning, but then you start wading into political discussion, which is prohibido.

    That's pretty freaking radical.

    The secession thing is passe at this point. I'm always hearing about states wanting to form their own country. Or at least groups petitioning for their state to secede.

    So do us residents of NYC.

    Where is more income tax collected: downstate or upstate NY?

    82% of the state's income taxes come from people working or living in NYC, Long Island, or Westchester, and we're only 62% of the population.

    Plus, Cuomo wouldn't be in charge of the MTA anymore.

    Wins all around, as far as I'm concerned.

    NYC is the only place it would work in the whole country.

    The three need each other to ensure that the state has a diversified economy or else you're Oklahoma: Corn and Oil

    I must have one of these!

    Before New Jersey learns about it and predictably bans it.

    Sweet! Do you surf? I’m doing two weeks on Oahu for honeymoon in September/October. Been there once before and loved it. Hopefully I get a chance to surf tomorrow. I was in Rio De Janeiro on business last week and surfed there for a couple hours. It was pretty fun!

    Negative, tried a bunch of times but could never quite figure it out. The most frustrating thing in my life.

    My GF's friend somewhat recently bought a house on the north shore, so if we ever go and visit I might give it another go. Of coarse I'd hike over to the south shore where the waves are small and go on for ever.

    Very Batman-ish. my only issue is that all of the test subjects are standing perfectly still with their legs together. An actual person in need of restraint would not be so cooperative.

    1970's north shore.

    The first tune I never heard of, and while the lyrics early are a little iffy, it's a really good jam overall. Kahvas Jute?
