Have you ever seen "Ocean's 12"? The movie seemed like it could do no wrong: great cast (George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, etc.), interesting story line, awesome director in Steven Soderbergh, etc. Yet, it somehow it sucked. It was like watching paint dry while getting oral sex from a shark.
Vancouver is kinda like that movie. It's a city that seems to have everything going for it: mild weather all-year round, the ocean, mountains, rolling forests, laid back people, etc. Yet, it's so fucking boring. It's been dubbed "The City That Fun Forgot" and that is putting it lightly.
Aside from daylight activities like climbing mountains, hiking and skiing, there's fuck all to do in Vancouver once the sun goes down. It's damn lucky that it's a port city, because drugs are easy to come by and you may as well get a heroin addiction to pass the time.
You'd think that Vancouverites would compensate for the city's shitty fun factor, but no. Vancouver is full of hipster douchebags, meat heads and tree huggers. Remember the Stanley Cup Riots in 2010 when the Canucks lost in Game 7 to the Bruins in the final? (jog your memory here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VzOUKODdZ4).
Only complete idiots would smash up their own city and think it was an appropriate response. Yes, you can argue that Montreal did the same thing back when they lost in the Stanley Cup final a few years back. But that's a different kind of stupidity. They're Quebecois!
