California the Travel Game

Confucius said,
"To know that we know what we know, and that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge."



I have invented a new Travel Game, it is called "California," after my fellow countrymen.

Game Directions
1. When you are listening to other travelers explain travel destinations and you suspect they have never been to the place you say.
"California."

2. Then you ask, "Have you been there?"
If they say no, then you have scored points,

3. Maybe if you want you can say,
"I be Confucius."



Why?
I am not positive why, and I am sure a few readers can explain better than me why, but there is this propensity for people who live in California, (Probably not born there.) to believe they know, then sadly people from other States copy this behavior.

This is similar to Wank Word Bingo
Wank Word Bingo
Or
"I like Pizza."
I like Pizza

Andy,

What this reminds me of is declarations made in John Naisbitt's book Megatrends (1982) where he points to 5 bellwether states (USA) that dominate in social invention.
California is the key indicator state, then Florida second, followed by Washington, Colorado and Connecticut.
I remember reading it way back then, no idea if this still applies today.

Besides bellwether, I guess another term is trendsetter or early adopter.
