    You Know You're From California If...

    Your co-worker has 8 body piercings and none are visible.

    You make over $300,000 a year and still can't afford a house.

    You take a bus and are shocked at two people carrying on a conversation in English.

    Your child's 3rd grade teacher has purple hair, a nose ring, and is named Flower.

    Gas costs $1.00 per gallon more than anywhere else in the U.S.

    You pass an elementary school playground and all the children are talking on their cell phones.

    Both you and your dog have therapists, psychics, personal trainers and cosmetic surgeons.

    If you drive illegally, they take away your driver's license. If you're here illegally, they want to give you one.

    You can't remember...Is pot illegal?

    The Terminator is your governor.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Back when i drove truck i had a simple test , no matter how tired i was ( this was back in the 20 hr drive 3 log book days ) when you quit seeing shooting times and started seeing high times ( in the 24hr store mag racks ) you are now in ca .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Yup, it's true.

    Wish it weren't true, but it is!
