    Re: What state is the coolest?

    Well since Cool is in Texas Im going with the Lone Star State.

    Cool Texas, Parker County, Population 162.

    We also have Austin which is the coolest and weirdest city in these United States. Its the Live Music Capital of the World. 1069 lives in Austin need I say more. Ok, I will say more. Austin has one of the coolest music scenes on the planet. Stubs BBQ, Antone's is the place where Stevie Ray Vaughn was discovered, not to mention all the other great acts that have performed there and call Texas home.

    Yeah; some people seem to doubt this, for some reason. I've mentioned it before.
    It really does, though.
    Or did, back in the 80s and 90s. It's become pretty commercial, what with SxSW.

    Austin Texas, Why Is Austin Weird?
    keep austin weird
    We've tried to stay true to the "Keep Austin Weird" motto, but I think we've failed, to some extent.
    When I was born, in the 70s, Austin was still basically a large college town.
    In the past 30-odd years, the metro area's population has swollen to over a million and a half people.
    The original, funky, offbeat, liberal "spirit of Austin" (in my opinion) is still alive and intact, but it's now confined to a few square miles of South Central Austin, while all around us, surrounding us on every side, a bland, flavorless, generic metroplex has grown like walls of thorns.
    "Keep Austin Weird" now basically serves two functions; on the one hand, it's a sort of battlecry/ secret code for "Keep the original spirit of our community intact/ to hell with the newcomers/ stay liberal, think green, shop local, support local live music, etc" and, in an ironic twist of fate, it's also become a tourist slogan (even as it's used as an anti-tourist/ anti-commercialism/ don't-sell-out rallying cry).
    If you see a guy wearing a "Keep Austin Weird" teeshirt, a "Keep Austin Weird" button on his backpack, a "Keep Austin Weird" hat and a "Keep Austin Weird" bumper sticker on his SUV, chances are he just moved here last month.
    Meanwhile the native Austinites are riding bikes and wearing teeshirts that say "Nutty Gringo" or "78704" (the 'hip' urban zip code; there's a grungy cachet attached to living in it).

    The reason people love California is because it's good weather all the time. Not a lot of rain, not a lot of snow, but depending on where you are, you can get to any climate you want in an hour or two.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    California has cooler versions of all those. And a better climate. And better food.

    North Carolina is best.


    Florida is WORST.

    Re: What state is the coolest?

    I'm actually kinda surprised that no one has picked Florida (although I'm not sure why I should be). It's certainly not anywhere near the top of MY list, but I figured that someone would pick it since everyone seems to vacation there.

    Florida seems like a classic "It's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there" type of state. And I agree with whoever said the same thing about Hawaii.

    California is a classic "It's a nice place to live, but I can't afford it" type of state. I realize that there are relatively cheap places to live in California...but living in Bakersfield would be a fate worse than death.

    I can't. This is important.
