Minnesota vs California -- it's time that we settled this feud once and for all

Post  pinhedz on Tue Dec 16, 2014 7:04 am

I know everyone here has picked up on it--the indirect insults, the unspoken rivalry between the two domains. We try to pretend that we don't see it, but that just makes it the unacknowledged elephant in the room.

I feel this conflict has come to a head, and it's time we had it out once and for all--let the BEST STATE WIN.

Vote now--vote often. bounce

I don't know if it will sway my vote, but that video is utterly beautiful. It makes me realize that no matter what is going on in your life, you are important and dont let anyone tell you otherwise. i love you and there will always be people that will love you. Life, and every being who's part of it, should be treated with love, compassion and respect, with no exceptions. Those of us here shouldn't be arguing. How ridiculous it is to squabble over subjective things like music instead of appreciating the grand picture.

Beaches? Shocked

Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes (closer to 14,000, by my count). Do you know how much total shoreline that adds up to?

And it's fresh water, not that briney kind Cali has. bounce

One of Minnesota's biggest worries is that people from other states might take a notion to move there. affraid

That's why they try to keep some of this stuff under wraps. Suspect

So let's keep this just between us--OK?

Ok, some valid points there--a total of two:

beautiful brown people wearing very little clothes.
Definitely struck a nerve with that one--but Minnesota is gradually increasing the brownishness--have you seen pinhedz step-mom? [Somebody said pinhedz dad was "Down for the swirl." What the Dickens does that mean? scratch ]   


We have Napa (wine) and San Diego (craft beer)
Yes, the pinhed has been imbibing much of that (who needs France? -- bunch of effete loafers, I'll take Freedom Freis and Paso Robles any day.bounce )

Still, I'm undecided. scratch

Consider the full range of musical contributions, there is a good deal more than just his Bobness. I won't try to reproduce the entire "Magnificance" thread here, but some hi-lites include the Andrews Sisters with their enormous contribution to the war effort against Hitler, and that seminal Folk Duo the DeZurik Sisters:

Woo is right about the deep ocean access (even though its a bit outside of California Razz ), but just how much line are those fishermen letting out? More than the depth of Lake Superior? Shocked

And beaches, I still say there are Minnesota counties that have more beach than the whole state of Cali:

Shoot--Lake Minnetonka by itself has more beach than the entire West Coast.

I half expected Cali to win--but with 100% of the popular vote? Shocked
Who knew it would be that lop-sided.

Ahah! Now the pendulum has swung back the other way. What a Face

The two super powers are now in a dead heat.

I expect the low voter turnout is due to the fact that this is the mid-term year. Voter interest could be higher in 2016--unless, of course, there's another regime change. affraid

Oh, this is another one of those things where people say "California" and they're really just talking about Southern Coastal California, I think.

This just in (I'm reading the local press here) "MINNETONKA APPROVES MID-RISE BUILDING."

It's the start of that slippery downward slide. Suspect

Silicon Valley is a nickname for the southern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California in the United States. It is home to many of the world's largest technology corporations, as well as thousands of tech startup companies. The region occupies roughly the same area as the Santa Clara Valley where it is centered, including San Jose and surrounding towns. The term originally referred to the region's large number of silicon chip innovators and manufacturers, but eventually came to refer to all high-tech businesses in the area, and is now generally used as a metonym for the American high-technology economic sector.

Silicon Valley is a leading hub for high-tech innovation and development, accounting for one-third of all of the venture capital investment in the United States. Geographically, Silicon Valley is generally thought to encompass all of the Santa Clara Valley, the southern San Francisco Peninsula, and southern portions of the East Bay region.

The term Silicon Valley is attributed to Ralph Vaerst, a successful local entrepreneur. Its first published use is credited to Don Hoefler, a friend of Vaerst's, who used the phrase as the title of a series of articles in the weekly trade newspaper Electronic News. The series, entitled "Silicon Valley in the USA", began in the paper's January 11, 1971 issue. The term gained widespread use in the early 1980s, at the time of the introduction of the IBM PC and numerous related hardware and software products to the consumer market. The Silicon part of the name refers to the high concentration of companies involved in the making of semiconductors (silicon is used to create most semiconductors commercially) and computer industries that were concentrated in the area. These firms slowly replaced the orchards and related agriculture and food production companies which gave the area its initial nickname — the "Valley of Heart's Delight."
