I have NEVER seen light up nativity figures at a garage/yard/sidewalk sale. And I grew up in rural Pennsylvania, which is ground zero for nativity displays, mind you. I think people burn the damaged ones, sort of like the Amerikkkan flag. However, 'round xmas, the Wal-Marts are bursting with just this type of tacky decoration. I wonder what the Chinese making these things think they are for?
Anyway: What fucking 'liveable city' do you live in? I'll bet it's some hellish suburb. Just because it is expensive here doesn't mean it isn't liveable. SF is a blast, I've never lived anywhere so fantastic.
PS. People here put their used exercise equipment out on the street with a 'free' sign taped to it. There is a nordictrack on my street right now.
Let's see if you come through with the camel.
