Every one of these complaints are so invalid and ill-informed, it's fucking laughable! You guys seriously believe that it just rains here all the time? Clearly none of you have ever been to central or eastern Washington. That area consists of high desert, the east slopes of the cascades that are more similar to the Rockies of Montana than anything else, and summer temperatures up to the 100's, winter lows to below zero. That's what makes Washington State one of the best places to live, WE HAVE IT ALL! Rainforest, coastline, high desert, low desert, and some of the most gorgeous mountains in the world. With these come every outdoor activity you can find in any other state, LITERALLY every one. Fucking morons. Oh, and dude that said California is the best, why? NorCal rules, yes, but if you're talking about SoCal you must be just as jaded as the rest of those boring drones. Only thing SoCal has going for them is the nice weather.
Yes. Simply add the terrible Duck Dynasty style, and the insane, misinformed culture-- you've got yourself a big bowl of Washington state!!
Say-- I bet you were born in Washington. That's fine. And you are right-- the area is beautiful. The summers are gorgeous. But a place is only as good as the people you know it in. And-- hopefully, no offense intended-- the population in general is filled with.. well. Crazies.

If Washington wanted to break off from America and become their own country, well, they could. I have lived here for years. The people I have met are so painfully socially inept, it's agonizing.
If you love trees, mushrooms, dirt, and dark grey clouds, Washington is the place for you.

Freedom in California? Give me a break.. Laws don't cover you for protecting yourself from violence, vehicle "smog" standards are an enormous farce just to bleed money from you, nearly any type of modification to your vehicle is illegal without CA approved smogged equipment. The police use any excuse to pull you over and hassle you, be it stickers that are took big, or "JDM" looking bumpers. Firearms laws in this state are a joke.. the court system never seems rule in favor of someone defending themselves against violence.. you're told to flee, even if you can't. The people here are ghetto, and believe they have some sense of entitlement because they collect welfare and unemployment. Most everyone is lazy and prefers to collect free checks rather than make a living and better themselves. Guess you can't blame them, they are only taking advantage of the "opportunities" given to them by the working class's money, distributed by "liberal" politicians. If you prefer a life of ease at other's expense, and don't mind your civil liberties being stripped from you daily, then yes California is the place to go for "real freedom."

When I lived in Seattle, I loved it. I could actually smoke weed without having some a$$hole preach to me.

People here were too nice to me. Literally, I could run across the street almost getting hit by a car, and it they literally ran out of shits to give that day.

I worked at IKEA for a bit, people were dumb beyond reason, but i think that's exclusive to IKEA customers in my opinion.

Weather there was awesome, it rain almost every other day, including in the winter.
I'm sure i'm missing a few thing, but you guys get the gist.

I'm down on the entire US. ;)
I really would love to live in Scotland, just can't afford that right now. But then pretty much anywhere in the UK would be better.
I do admit that we are a better state than most in the US, we do have failings though, mostly in finances.
Go visit there first! I thought the same thing until I went to Northern England... They are so far in the past it is shameful! Women's rights? Most of them don't even drive - because, get this...It is too expensive! Yes, petrol is at about 3 pounds per liter - not gallon - LITER! Scotland is beautiful - but an extremely poor country still under the Queen Mother's thumb. Shameful - I do hope they gain their Independence in 2016 - maybe I would move there then!
Washington seems to be such a progressive state. I currently live in South Carolina - yeah, seriously, don't ask. The South East is so ass-backwards its not even funny. They want the towns to be like "Mayberry" and fight change at every turn...Not to mention being in the Bible Belt. Please tell me it is better than the Eastern half of the country....and I will be on my way. Perhaps I can meet with the people from AR - I feel for you - Walmart Capital of the country. Run, far and Fast!

I have lived in Washington for 32 continuous years.
In that time, it has been Kalifornicated to the point of social extinction.
Now, we have the worst possible blend of liberal arrogance and social ineptitude.

Seattle, at this point, is a self punching machine.
The average age of people living in Seattle has not changed in 30 years.

What does that mean? It means that young people move-in and older people grow up and move out! Everything is far too expensive, especially housing, taxes are out-of-control and the school system is beyond comprehension. Once you grow up enough to buy a house and have a kid, you look around and realize that hippies thinking of patchouly oil aren't really good neighbors.

It's sad and pathetic and I'm leaving the state in two years when I retire.

Seattle born and raised. Dating in Washington sucks. I have lived and dated men in Nevada and California. Hands down when dating men in Washington I have found them to be completely emotionally unstable and unable to have a healthy stable relationship. The men I've experienced have been very different from each other in age, race, and careers but all very moody, all ready to snap at any small misunderstanding or hiccup. Never had this problem in the sunny states. It's too bad

yeah? who will be left to work at Microsoft, Amazon, Boeing, and the UW? There is a reason this state attracts people from other countries and states- there isn't any talent locally.

My family and I are wanting to move far, far, FAR away from Arkansas and after looking at and researching MANY different places, we have decided on Washington because it is such a beautiful state with many opportunities for our children and is diverse. I can't wait to make the move!! Don't be so down on where you live, you could always be stuck in Hicktown, USA and trust me, that is MUCH MUCH worse than rain!!
So, did you move? My family and I are also looking to move out of AR and wondered where the best location might be. We still like small towns, but obviously large enough to sustain a job market.

im from Portland so its not to much of a difference i stay in tacoma at the moment but ive stayed in seattle too, and hands down no comparison washington state has the worst drivers in the entire country. Common sence driving does not exist here in washington u dont know wut the hell any body is going to do out there its a death trap. i have a prayer before i start my truck and i kiss the ground when my destination has been reached.. if you are new to washington especialy western washington make sure both hands are on the wheel and all your mirrors work.. its like being the only sober driver on a road of drunken maniacs... smh nothin stresses me out more then bad driving

I've lived in all Pacific states, WA, OR, CA and HI,
(And elsewhere in the U.S.)
I just think they're all great states to live,
obviously weather differences but in many ways
being all in America they all got that great feeling!
I think that no one really knows how any place is compared
something else unless they've lived in 'em both or
better yet in all, incl. other countries!
I at least have had really great years in America
even though I'm originally from Europe.

Weather differences and cultural ones are what make each State unique. How boring would it be if they were all the same. And who could agree on which State would be the best one to pick? The population of each State can always give reasons why theirs suck. Just as there are always reasons why we continue to live where we do and things we like.
I lived for a time in Louisiana so I hear what you're saying. Despite the blatant differences they have the Country in common.

Lived in SoCal 40+ years and thought I had enough of that. I didn't know how good it really was in California until I moved here (Washington State) 7 years ago. I've never met so many mean/hateful/miserable people in one place. I get more respect from a gangbanger in Compton than is possible here. Why am I here? My stupid dying tech job thought it would be good for me to work here (before being outsourced to India).

If one asks "how many people live in Washington State?". I say zero. Everybody merely exists.

Would rather be homeless in California than live in a McMansion in this
hellish place and yes I'm getting the fuck-out!
