Leave us Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity, and it's a deal. :thumb:

Regrettably that would be difficult, as our capitol is likely to be Eureka.

However I'm sure we can work out an agricultural export treaty. :naughty:

Funny thing how invasions turn into 5 day Reggae fests up here. Once the invading army mixes with the indigenous population and finds the groove no one can remember what they were thinking yesterday.

On day 6 you'll wake up in your own beds wondering if all that really just happened.

I think California would be better off if they just blew San Fransisco off the map and let them be their own island state. I wonder how long they'd last without the rest of California.:hmm:

Geologically speaking, it would be much more likely for SF to just get ground up and eventually get pulled underground by plate tectonics.

Either way though...

no quake lines in my area, but we do have
an active volcano 40 miles from here, that has
erupted a few times back in the early 1900s

They would have some real problems. They destroyed a valley just like Yosemite for drinking water (Hetch Hetchy). We would drain that first and see how many people can live in SF.

One of the things I love most about this state is the broad diversity we enjoy, and I wouldn't want to lose any of it. I like folks from all the places mentioned upthread, and it's a good balance of rural/urban, conservative/liberal, religious/secular...we've got it all here, guys, and it's a good thing overall.

We just need to get rid of that moneysucking U.S. government...:laugh2:

There's a big building with a rotunda about 10 miles from where I sit that could use a little bit of that diversity.

True story: Halloween, 1988 or 89, driving around downtown, decided to get a closer look at the capitol building. There's this turnabout at the edge of Capitol park, between the library and post office, so I just jumped the curb with my jeep, drove right up the plaza and up the steps, then made a u-turn around one of the pillars and drove right back to the street. :laugh2:

I can only imagine that if I tried to pull something like that now, I'd be on the receiving end of an RPG before I got halfway to the steps. :shock:
