Like I said, what else is new?

According to this, people in LA are known for being the rudest and the most stupid out of a list of 25 major cities.
Does the word Duh mean anything to you?
There has been a definite downturn in the quality of people I meet than even just a few years ago. I am surprised and saddened with the ease of information in the modern technical age and how very few people seem all that interested in tapping in to it. Even now, I think I would still rather do without the internet or television than my books and that almost makes me strange nowadays.
It is only going to get worse, I wish I could be more optimistic, but than is very little evidence to the contrary. A simple question such as " Do you like to read?" is almost exclusively answered, " Well, I read magazines." Ugh, if I get that response one more time... I should rephrase that and say, " Do you read anything that is not almost exclusively pictures?" Vogue, Elle, or Glamour, while full of lovely, highly expensive things, do not count as reading material. National Geographic and other associated magazines do count because at least there is educational content, well, that doesn't have to do with what colors are in this season and hair don'ts.
I honestly hate to rant but there are so many things that irritate me to some degree that I have to give vent to them occasionally. Alright than, I feel better now.
On a totally unrelated note, is anyone going to see Laibach on the 26th of Sept, I hope to get my ticket this week. ^_^

Was the midwest on that survey? I moved to Iowa for the hopes of peace and quiet. And to explore new areas. What I found was equivelent of jumping back to the 30's and 40's. Clannish(not kkk)folk who sniff and whine about new things. And by far the worst, via discrimination to anyone slightly different from their overall wearing arses! Even as an American I feel like a second class citizen!

"According to this, people in LA are known for being the rudest and the most stupid out of a list of 25 major cities." from having living many other places in this country and los angeles i would just like to say that that is ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT. d-:

maybe l.a. is "known" for that but thats cause people living in most other less world centric parts of the country are judgemental fundamentalist small-minded fucking morons with a head full of ideas pertaining to different cultures including los angeles that they are simply misunderstanding and misjudging d-:
los angeles just has too many different types of people to fit into any stereotype. period. maybe beverly hills fits that quote, but honestly that's the only area i can think of that i could apply that to.

also, the most unfriendly, cliquey and rudest populace i have ever witnessed thus far in my life is here in seattle. and i can't wait to move back to l.a. next month d-:

anyway, most people are equally stupid everywhere - i think it just depends on what kind of 'stupid' you're willing to put up with. and i find in huge places like los angeles since there are more people, it's much easier to find ones that are a bit less stupid than in smaller places and the rest of america for that matter.

Yeah... I'm convinced that the only reason Seattlites still exist is because it's illegal to kill them.

I met a highschool history teacher at a bar a while back. She said that she hated reading. And this is the sort of person teaching children today.
