Unlike The Unsatisfied Overachiever, literally no one in your hometown understands or supports you. "Why are you doing that dumb thing you do?" they ask rhetorically. But fear not, weirdo, because in L.A. someone will understand you. And then rent you rollerblades. And then an entire community called Venice will tacitly tolerate your public display of freakdom. So give that flag a twirl and see how you fare in the city that will put up with pretty much anything. Think of Los Angeles as a bizarro New York: In L.A., if you can't make it here, you can't make it anywhere.
