I missed this when SondraK posted it last month, but it was so perfect I just had to dredge it up. I hope my Californian wife will forgive me.
Do you know what happened this week back in 1850?

California became a state on September 9, 1850.

The State had no electricity. The State had no money. Almost everyone spoke Spanish. There were gunfights in the streets.  Basically, it was just like California today, except the women had real [breasts] and the men didn’t hold hands.

Happy birthday to the state that makes America the weirdly wonderful place it is!
