A place with few venues for local bands, Christmas in the Park, and crazy Santa Clara cops in the next town over (which is all connected so you can't really tell).
Bad traffic and a bad nightlife.
"Hey! San Jose is 45 minutes away from SF!"
A 2-year fraternity/sorority/honors society that accepts anyone with a 3.5 GPA or higher, about 12-18 units, and some money to waste. Only reason to join is for one's application to a 4-year institute. Their "leadership conferences" are a joke.
Oh! I received an acceptance letter from Cornell purely on the basis that I'm in Phi Theta Kappa?
An evil bastion of California conservatism. Condoleezza Rice used to teach Political Science there.
Their art museum is quite nice though.
"It took me FOREVER to find parking at Stanford University!"
A place for those who were rejected from UCB/UCLA.
I was rejected from Cal and UCLA, but I was accepted into UCSD. Oh well.
One of those annoying douches who apologizes before saying something horribly offensive, ignorant, or demeaning to you. The apology is supposed to make it nicer somehow--or they're attempting to be PC (which is annoying as well).
These type of people also lose credibility on their beliefs since it conveys less confidence about their beliefs.
I'm sorry, but I think you're going to Hell for not being baptized.
I'd like to apologize in advance but I think you're a huge, worthless douchebag.
Quit being an apologist.
An ancient African kingdom which some argue influenced Egypt and the Western world as we know it.
Traditionalists and current evidence support that Sumer was the first civilization however.
"That Kushite sure made cute, little pyramids!"
A great sport requiring much spirit, discipline, and all of that jazz. Unfortunately, a lot of samurai/ninja-wannabes tend to participate in this sport. Also, fencing is better than kendo. One would not be shocked to see one who participates in kendo as one who participates in band, and one who participates in LARPing.
Kendo makes your feet smell too.
Oh and kendo stemmed from kenjitsu in response to Ieyasu Tokugawa pwning Japan.
Kendo seems cool. What a great example right?
