With a population of nearly a half million, it is the third largest inland city in California. God knows why, it's a pretty horrible place, with summer (late May-late October) temperatures averaging in the high 90s and air quality that can practically disable you. Winter is short and usually doesn't get colder than 50 degrees in the daytime.

Meth is as easily found as soda machines and getting drunk at parties in the middle of fields is a common Friday night activity.

Housing used to be dirt-cheap, but as of recently it's increased drastically. Statistics show that every single day 10 people from LA move into Bakersfield.

Ridiculously, there is only one real shopping mall (Valley Plaza) so at any given time it is too crowded to take a breath.

Much of the population are Mexicans that hop the border and invade town then clog the streets protesting their "deserved rights" when they are not even citizens.

Areas of town are sort of defined by the high schools: South High (southside), East High (eastside) {don't walk the streets at night because you WILL get stabbed by a mexican gang}, North High (north) {A.K.A. Oildale- which isn't a city in itself, just a name for the trailer park/white trash part of town], West High (west) {if you want to get shot, eat at a taco bell}, Ridgeview High {out in the middle of fucking nowhere}. Then there are the snobby, rich schools around the Northwest/Southwest part of the city such as Centennial High, Liberty High, and Stockdale High. Liberty is home to the hottest, most shallow kids in the whole city. If you're not good-looking, you're invisible.

Friday night high school football games rule many kids' lives. If you're not a jock, then you're going to be pretty fucking bored and will resort to devoting your life to the "hXc!" music scene. (Scene kids in Bakersfield are known to be pretentious jerks.) You will spend your every waking moment in the sweaty, roach-infested basement of Jerry's Pizza watching shitty local bands lose their voices.
Summer's started.. Looks like we won't be stepping foot outside for the next five months. Bring me a Bud Light and a pack of Camels!

kid 1 "I just moved to Bakersfield. Do you know where I can score some ice?"
kid 2 "Dude, just stand at a corner and someone will come up to you and ask you to buy."

kid 1 "You're going to the mall in Bakersfield?? Don't you know there was a shooting there a month ago?"
kid 2 "Yeah, there's not really any other choice. I'm bored as hell and there is no other decent fucking mall in the entire city."

one who lives within the boundaries of the 93308 zip code which is also referred to as oildale. the kids attend north high, which is synonymous with white trash. those outside of the 08 zip code use this term as an insult. some 08ers take it offensively, while most take pride in it for who knows what reason.
rich kid from liberty high: ew, take a bath, you fucking 08er.

08er: i'm an 08er in 08!!!!!!!!!!11 (graduating in 93308 in 2008)

the stage between thinking you are gay and admitting it to yourself.

happens often with gay guys, they will have sex with a lot of girls to try to turn themselves straight.

it usually doesn't work. after this, they realize they can't change it and begin to accept it.
person 1: "jason had sex with so many girls.. i didn't know he was gay."
person 2: "yeah, he tried to fuck himself straight. didn't work, though."

The land Bakersfield occupies used to be a barren, desert-like field. It is known for its agriculture, the Crystal Palace (gross country music hall), Buck Owens (gross country singer), home of the shitty rock band KORN, and oil pumps that litter various areas of town.
