Hey me too, we should connect, are you in the Bay Area?

San Francisco as well

PRO

  • What nature offers here is unrivaled. Mountains/skiing, beaches (though having grown up on the Caribbean I don't really like the beaches here... it still amazes me that you go to the beach and besides some surfers on wet suits there is no one in the beach and a bunch of people are just covering up with sweaters on the sand), wine country, Yosemite.
  • Weather: to me SF has the best weather in the world.  Not too hot not too cold.  I even like the fog
  • Work/Economy: Lots of great jobs with some cool companies.  Also, compared to NYC I do feel the city has a much more relaxed attitude about work. 
  • Tech: I really enjoying seeing all the new things that are coming up when they first start.
  • Food is ok overall, not NYC, but everything you could want.  It is a bit overpriced.  I have a hard time finding the cheap whole in the wall establishments that I often found in NYC. 

CON

  • Cost of living: it is just stupid, making good quality of life very difficult, in particular real estate. 
  • As mentioned earlier, schools suck.  Almost everyone with kids leaves the city to the Peninsula, East Bay or North Bay which makes commuting not fun.
  • Taxes
  • Hard to travel elsewhere.  It is just far from any other major destination (except LA, Vegas)
  • Everyone is tech... tech developer, tech lawyer, tech real estate, tech marketing... little industry diversity.
  • I personally do not like the attitude of people here.  Its like they are always looking down their noses or judging.  If you are not hipster or into yoga people definitely judge. 
  • Bad drivers... and traffic has been getting horrible.  Since I am on the subject, it drives me insane that traffic lights are not programmed to allow easy flow of traffic.  
  • Homeless.  It is sad, but it is every where.  And I have seen more petty crime here (breaking into cars, stealing phones, stealing bikes) than anywhere else.

I feel you... I am 40 and we just had out first baby 3 weeks ago. Tons of work but loving the experience. Can't wait for the baby to start interacting with us. So far my favorite is the face she makes when she is trying to poop.

The way I usually view it is - if a country is making positive strides then I want to support it (which may no longer be the case with China right now... or most of the world for that matter... sigh). As Venezuelan, I even stopped going back there 12 years ago.

01/31/2017 - 8:59pm This really sucks

This really sucks.  Although I appreciate the efforts of the other app especially since they were the first, the HD app was far superior to use and navigate, even when compared to the site.  I am disappointed that the Mgo team was not able to come to an agreement with the owner especially since they were not even trying to monetize it.  UX/UI is a huge favtor for users and even if the website has ignored it a bit (and I care less online) the fact that viewing the site on mobile will now be such a less pleasant experience is a sad decision for this entire community. 

01/31/2017 - 11:15am That is true when a class has

That is true when a class has like 7 kids, but 20 is a full class. OSU and Bama have insane classes let's just accept that and be happy with what we have which is great as well.

There are, look at their basketball class last year.  And I know people connected with their program that have told me it happens (and they say it happens to some extent at every school).

Are there anti-points? Is WD a black-point with such a high concentration of points that it automatiically creates new posts just to attract all points? Is the Super Guide the event pointrizon?

On the other hand, I've seen some great posts from people with low points. Don't forget that many people are unable or un-interested in participating in posbang posts or playing the useless reply game just to gain points. We might alienate some great posters/content since it might take a very long time to get to 500.
