Maybe an even better clue would be what team started in Cleveland moved to Los Angeles left and eventually returned to Los Angeles. They are the only team to relocate as the current NFL champion.

He's making a joke about plastic surgery. Anyway the valley you are referring to that is up North is called Silicon (without the 'e') Valley.

With all the plastic surgeons I'm guessing there is a lot of silicone there, but not in valleys.

Valley Girls did not have plastic surgery. It was not a big deal yet. We hung out in the malls when they were new, all talk about clothing, makeup, and boys. Talked like most teenage girls do nowadays. "Like, for sure. Totally." "Gag me with a spoon." Moon Zappa recorded a song on this...early or mid 70s? My sister spoke exactly like that--eerie. I moved away and suddenly people noticed my speech. I dropped most of it bc you got no respect turning every statement into a question mark.

grew up in LA and Orange county. This was super easy except the hollywood sign one. I had no idea. I think most people who got it must have googled it. I mean other questions were a lot easier if you lived there and more people got some of those wrong.

The sign was in a movie a few years ago, maybe several. And documentaries and books about old Hollywood and old movie stars. There are stories about the sign, like someone bought the "O" in honor of Groucho Marx when they redid the sign. It originally marked a housing division built under it called "Hollywoodland."

"I think most people who got it must have googled it." Wow. The ego-centrism is palpable. "I didn't know it THEREFORE no one else must have known it." Just, wow. Keep your eyes open, you'll start seeing signs with "Hollywoodland" all over the place. Now you'll know why.

Believe me, it's the best place in the world! I moved away after living there 45 yrs and learned how awful it is elsewhere. People from all over the world have contributed to a thriving diverse community with 100 things to do. People are smarter in California--all the colleges from the JCs to private schools for arts, fashion, technology, then the world-rated 30th best university. All the entertainment. The beaches. People think it's all entertainment industry, but there is a world class city there, independent of that, that rarely crosses its path. It just needs the representation in Congress it deserves by population, not 1/4, and it needs a transportation system!

Do people actually use the term "Angeleno?" I've never heard it in my life, but I've also never been closer than San Francisco so it's quite possible I've just never encountered it.

Yes, I heard the term all my life--local news mostly. But I'm old, can't speak for current usage. It was used in sports a lot...maybe because they were their constituency/fans?

I still use it. I'm pretty sure it's the standard local demonym -- if you google it you will pull up a lot of local news articles from the current year.
