Because there's nothing quite like a good old-fashioned fight, it's Rivalry Week. Keep tabs on simmering feuds across the country right here.
Every year, around this time, my editor calls me from San Francisco and says "Hey, it's rivalry week and we need you to write another piece about why LA is better than SF, even though it's obviously not." And every year I'm like, "Sure, just let me finish enjoying this margarita on the beach while you endure even more fog in a bleak, overpriced cityscape." This year though (once I finished my beachside margarita, of course), I decided to put this tired debate to rest using SCIENCE. So here are 10 facts (FACTS!) that prove LA is, without a doubt, better than San Francisco.
I mean, duh, but it's also a fact: LA comes in first place for cities in the whole country when "the mean temperature was between (55° F and 75° F), the minimum temperature was above 45° F, the maximum temperature was below 85° F, and there was no significant precipitation or snow depth." SF? A dreary No. 5.
