North Dakota gets ugliest state. Fitting.

Not surprised Montana has the most drunk driving arrests. Nothing to do in the winter but drink.

Jeebus, Mississippi! Get your shiat together!

Also, it's still funny how Rick Perry begs businesses from around the country to relocate to the Drop-Out State.

Vermont.
Billboards are illegal.
Skinnydipping is legal.
We're next to Montreal, so we can go out for good food.

Maine is dumbest? Florida and Texas might have something to say about that. There's so much more that goes into being dumb than SAT scores.

On a very personal level, Washington state bestiality is a problem for me. Despite the fact that I've never banged an animal nor been to the state since I was 6.

vudukungfu: Vermont.

You don't need laws to keep you from skinnydipping when it's 20 degrees out.

I still am amazed at this shot of LA with clear air:

Compared to this:


Aside from that, though, yep. North California is Best California.

8. Delaware: highest abortion rate (27 per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44)
15. Iowa: highest percentage of people age 85 and older (1.8 percent) (tied with three other states)
23. Minnesota: highest number of reported tornadoes (123 in 2010)
29. New Hampshire: highest rate of corporate taxes
30. New Jersey: highest rate of citizen taxation (11.8%)
35. Ohio: nerdiest state claim based on highest number of library visits per capita (6.9)
44. Utah: highest rate of of online porn subscriptions
45. Vermont: infertility claim based on lowest birth rate of any state (10.6 births per 1,000) (tied with Maine)


These don't seem at all sources of "shame".

31. New Mexico: antisocial claim based on lowest ranking in social heath policies
34. North Dakota: ranked last in ugliest residents report as chosen by The Daily Beast
36. Oklahoma: highest rate of female incarceration


These just seem stupid.

Massachusetts has the worst drivers? No way. Road design, I'll give them, but the DC area demands a recount on the bad-driver thing.
 
2013-09-24 01:26:01 PM
Oh.....this map again. This was already greenlit months ago.

Four of our last seven governors are--or have been--in prison.

And that was not the first time, either

Drunk Driving makes sense. Just had a guy on his 12th DUI get a 5-year suspended sentence. If you get caught driving on a revoked license, it is $100 fine and that's it. Our drunk driving laws are pretty strict on paper, but the judges never enforce those "harsh" sentences because it ruins lives. Pretty sad really.

I didn't click the link, but it's long been known that in Urbana, Illinois (in my home state, and also where I lived for several years in college), Monsters are not allowed in the city limits.

No data. Everyone sent to investigate the drivers in DC was run over.

Hey now. If it wasn't the bestiality it would have been the serial killers or the MS.

Highest number of abortions is pretty shameful.

We live in a dumb world when visiting libraries the most appears alongside bestiality on the list of shame.

Yep.  Ohio's is the least "shameful" of the entire list.  We go to the library more than anyone else, but shhhhh don't tell the neighbors.

Homelessness?  Really?  That's our claim to shame?  We've got nothing more embarrassing than our homeless population?

Riiiiiiiiight.

RminusQ: On a very personal level, Washington state bestiality is a problem for me. Despite the fact that I've never banged an animal nor been to the state since I was 6.


And you never shot a horse in your pajamas since you were 6, either.
(How DID that horse got in a 6-year-old's pajamas?)

Just google "Enumclaw horse case".
("Visiting Enumclaw" is a new local euphemism, along with "visiting Tukwila".)

Wait... TN got "Most Corrupt"?.... oh, they're not counting DC. Carry on, then.

The Central Valley is really bad, too. Agriculture is actually generally pretty horrible when it comes to air quality. Air coming in from the bay pushes the Bay's smog into the CV, where it just sits with no place to go.

You're supposed to be ashamed of binge drinking?

Who knew?
 
2013-09-24 01:34:49 PM
They're right about Wisconsin.  They're the worst at binge drinking.  People of Wisconsin, how can you ever get good at binge drinking when you're always drinking.  You need to take off drinking for at least 8 hours a day.  That way, you can truly binge in the evening rather than just maintain your buzz.

They should have just put Gary on it.

Yay, California smog! I live near the coast in a rural area, so my skies are crystal clear.

Mississippi's 10.3% infant mortality rate gave me a sad.

Pennsylvania... arson, really?

Not idiotic alcohol laws??!?!

/because buying a case a case of beer and a six pack of beer in the same place makes baby jesus sad
