We's in California

Holy macaroni.

So, ever though about buying a house in LA instead of paying rent? This is what 399,999 American dollars gets you. No joke, I checked others like it and its same idea.
And to think in Winnipeg that gets you a place on Wellington Crescent. Then again you need to take into account other factors, like quality of life. Wait a minute, 3 minutes of cold until your car warms up versus 3 minutes to pull out of your driveway...then another 120 to get to work. Hmmmm?

  • ...and, to top it all off, it's in a REALLY CRIME-RIDDEN part of town! Those speaking Spanish CDs would stand you in good stead if you moved into that refrigerator box. Welcome to L.A.!

  • Van Nuys isn't any more crime-ridden than, say, Mar Vista or Westwood, it just LOOKS like it should be crime-ridden.

    Not like North Hollywood, the GTA Capital of the US. Van Nuys is merely the Abandoned Shopping Cart Centre of California.
