What follows is a comment I made about a YouTube video.
New Orleans is easily one of the most diverse cities in the world by far. I’m not sure if you realize this. I’m not exaggerating. New Orleans isn’t even part of the south, even if it’s in the south. There are so many races there. Of course I wouldn’t live anywhere but California. Oregon and Miami are nice, but only to visit.
California holds one out of every four Nobel laureates in the U.S.A., the highest waterfall in the contiguous U.S.A., the hottest desert of all time which has the lowest point in North America which is also 85 miles from the tallest mountain in the contiguous U.S.A., produces more than 90% of the wine in the U.S.A., making it the world’s fourth largest wine producer if it were a country, consumes 20% of the wine in the U.S.A., would be the 9th largest economy in the world if it were a country, owns the most successful castle in Europe which is also Europe’s largest tourist attraction by far responsible for 15% of France’s GDP, known as Disneyland Paris, which means California would be almost equal to France’s GDP if it wasn’t for Disneyland Paris, is the world’s fifth largest supplier of food and agricultural commodities, has the largest populations of any race with the exceptions of the countries of origin, has a dairy industry that is at least twice that of any other state, has the oldest, tallest, largest trees in the world.
The list goes on and on. Of course you probably know that California dominates the film industry. I think the county I lived in was the largest agricultural producer by far in the U.S.A. There were fields everywhere. Grapes, potatoes, oranges, etc. You name it. Of course Los Angeles county is the largest county in the U.S.A. more populous than 40 other states. Now has the world’s top university: Caltech. Standford is usually the world’s second top university.
Then there are Baja California and Baja California Sur which has the world’s most diverse species. The Bajas hold some records too.
California is the most geographically diverse state of all, which makes it extremely beautiful. It’s far from crowded. It’s spread out and laid-back, unlike eastern cities. Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America, second deepest in the U.S.A., and 27th largest lake by volume in the world.
California is far from just Hollywood, surfers, hippies, and porn. But California even dominates all that too, so I wouldn’t say “just.”
But New Orleans is probably my favorite place next to California, simply because of it’s history. And the food isn’t southern. But I don’t like many other states. Oregon is awesome. But if you tour California, and I mean really tour it, you probably won’t much like any other place as much as you do now. Some of the world’s top chefs. The list goes on. The place is magical.
