    159 years ago this Fall

    Do you know what happened 159 years ago this Fall... back in 1850?



    California became a state.
    The people had no electricity.
    The state had no money.
    Almost everyone spoke Spanish.
    There were gunfights in the streets.
    So basically, nothing has changed except the women had real boobs and the men didn't hold hands.

    haha what a great post. My city is stuck in the 1850's. You can still be hung for robbing a bank here. I'm in old El Paso, TX.

    Okay, now that that is out of the way, I have to say, there is an almost disturbing amount of truth in this!!! And, I am actually in California right now.
