    Since being here I've seen hundreds of tacos. About every 5th vehicle is a Toyota truck of some sort, many are lifted...why so popular here?

    When I told a guy that I work with that I got a Tacoma, the first thing he said was that the Hawaiians sure love them! He's been there a few times and said they're all over the place. You can tell that's true by how many members from Hawaii you see post here too.

    Easy for you to say. I was born and raised on Maui. Everytime we dove, it was almost guaranteed to catch an Uhu or Tako or something. When I first moved here, I couldn't catch shit. Not even a decent sized Kala...

    It's called pidgin. But anyways you wouldn't know anything about Hawaiian history. Yes we may look uneducated. But then again you're 16. I forgot. Teenagers know everything at their age.
