A strange phenomenon which occurs to a portion of people from the west coast, in which they develop a massive superiority complex, and a shitty attitude towards the rest of the country. This often results in them believing the entire Midwest is full of rednecks, small towns and farmland (despite the fact that the Midwest is the largest and most populous region in the US).
Angeleno (person from LA): Yo breh LA has tha best weather and Kansas is full of rednecks and farmland fuk Kansas City dued. And cali is sooo full of culture and we got oceans and mountains dued it's the center of the universe!!!! And liek 6 ppl live in the Midwest dued

Kansas Citian: Tell me more about how shitty and polluted your ocean and air is. And while you're at it, Google some pictures of the Midwest and acknowledge the fact that that the Midwest is home to the great lakes, which are basically seas, and have some great beaches, and that Colorado has mountains. And you'll be happy to know that it is home to cities like Chicago, Kansas City, Denver, St. Louis, Detroit, and Minneapolis (most of which beat the shit out of most Californians cities). And before I beat your ass, I might as well let you know that it's only cold and "shitty" for about 1/4 of the year, which is because of this great new thing called winter. That's W-I-N-T-E-R. We also have summer, spring, and fall. They're called seasons. That's S-E-A-S-O-N-S. But I wouldn't expect someone who only experiences ONE season to know that. After all, you live in a fucking desert. Looks like you have a bad case of the West Coast Effect.
