3 California is all about Hollywood and surfing

This stereotype is mainly directed at SoCal, and even there, you won't see many people walking the red carpet or hanging 10 on the surfboard on a daily basis. - ethanmeinster

California has huge snow skiing resort spread across its numerous high mountain areas like Mammoth Mountain and Lake Tahoe.
Most people who do work for the movie studios are electricians, carpenters, computer techs, etc, not actors.
Far more people in California go bass fishing than go surfing.
The main stereotype that applies to California is CROWDS, there 40 million people in the state, everything is massively overcrowded.

And don't forget about Disney World. - ethanmeinster

6 Mississippi is racist

We did have a lot of slavery long ago, but there isn't even close to as much racism now. - Garythesnail

However, if you're interested in telephone poles and barren badlands, then this place is for you. - ethanmeinster
