From here on out I'm just going to replace Driscoll in my mind's eye with season 1 Boyd Crowder, for comfort's sake.
Too much Driscoll on the mind leaves me feeling slimy.

In the South black eyed peas are comparatively a health food, so perhaps you are more likely to have good 'luck' if you have them at least one day a year.
Also, performing local rituals helps confirm you as part of the tribe. Being an 'other' is never good.

So vampire porn is fine (Anne Rice et al), but sasquatch porn is a nono?
Where do they stand on blackulas and wendigos?

commented on Six Californias? We Can Barely Stand the California We've Got!
If people in California (or WA) want to live in different political climates, then they should move. Besides the fact that it's politically nigh-impossible, splitting up states or redrawing borders, just to meet the ephemeral whims of the political opposition, is a terrible idea. Any 'fix' would be outdated within a decade. We have open borders between states for a reason.
Nobody born since 1900 should be all that surprised by the current nature of CA politics. Not all that much has changed: subsidized extraction vs. environmental NIMBYism, industry riding big government contracts vs. labor wanting their cut, 'nativist' vs. immigrant, and everyone concerned about the water.
