BunkoSquad: OK, hang on, I'm as Northeastern Liberal as any Northeastern Liberal that ever Northeastern Liberaled, but the whole BBQ thing can't be ignored.

You mean, the cooking method invented by Taino indians in the Caribbean? That BBQ?

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: The south is truly a cultureless backwater. Please, never come here.



Yes, please stay right where you are, since we're so crappy and all you aren't missing anything.

Especially Connecticut.

And, just for the record, cute girls with a North Carolina accent give me wood just by saying "Hi".

Rubbish.  I've been through all of the top 10 except MT and ND, and I can honestly say that the drivers in the South know how to get shiat moving.  Nothing more irritating than a left-lane driver, and I see that shiat more often than not up here in WI and Midwest in general.

This study is biased towards automobile deaths, DUIs, and citations.  All this proves is that the southern states are better at ticketing their shiatty drivers.  That is all.

Funny how all of the North Eastern libs flee down to the south once they are old.

This list had no credibility. DC drivers are the worst.


South of Gainesville no-longer counts as the south, DC is bad, but most people live around DC. Ohio drivers are the worst

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Elegy: Black people. The south gave you a culturally disctinct population of black people in America.

If you don't like the south, you're probably racist.

Oh, please, there are black people in the northeast. They just keep them tucked away in small little pockets and separated from the decent blue blooded folks.


Come to New Haven CT, Yale is the only thing from keeping this place from being the "Chocolate City" of the north!

I can't believe Ohio didn't make the list of bad drivers. If there are drivers worse than Buckeyes.... I hope I never run into them... I don't want them running into me, either.

Referring to New Haven as a "chocolate city" kinda proves my point, considering it's what, 10% African American? I'd never refer to my city as a "chocolate city" even though it's 30% African American.

Kinda crazy that northerners think 10% black population is large enough to label it a chocolate city.

As someone who just finished eating some  beef roast dry rubbed in coarse pepper, salt, chili powder, granulated onion then smoked in mesquite with water, wine and lemon as a steaming liquid, may I say I am beginning to appreciate the wonders of slow, indirect smoking. I haven't been to the mountaintop but I'm getting there.

Pocket Ninja: Scrapple, cracklin', pecan pie, bbq, country ham, Savannah, Charleston, and annoyed women using the phrase "well, bless your heart" when they actually mean "go fark yourself, you piece of shiat."

Those are the main contributions.


You can scratch scrapple off that list of Dixie contributions to American cuisine.  Scrapple was manufactured as way to make use of piece of hog meat that isn't fit to eat.  It is beloved/cursed by every Pennsylvanian who was blessed with a mother with a morbid sense of humor (not to mention lost the senses of smell and taste).  My mother prepared one dish of scrapple and apple for breakfast when I was about six.  I ate about two forkfuls of this crap and refused to eat another bite.

Well for at least the last couple of decades, their derptastic "conservative" voting bloc has attempted to impose theocracy on the entire country and either repealed or held back almost all rational protection of individuals and workers, and prevented pretty much every other grown-up, logical change you can think of. Dragging us down, they are.

That's a pretty zoomed in map there. I'm not arguing the general point, but that pretty much shows that the Brooklyn/Queens area is pretty darned diverse. Yea, Manhattan is deep red.. big shocker there.

FTFA: Almost all of the states at the bottom of the ranking are large and rural, many with little public transit and long distances between major population centers, while many of the safest states are smaller in size (though not necessarily in population), where people don't have to drive a long way to get anywhere.

There are a lot of idiots on the roads in NC.  But you cannot prove by me that NC drivers are worse than Baltimorons.

The point was they're tucked into corners - the segregation as far as where people live is extreme.

As a displaced Southerner, I can verify that. CT drivers are just pains in the f*cking ass though when they hit the pike, or anything that remotely looks like a gottverdammt rotary. What kills me in Mass, is that EVERY damn time there's a snowstorm up here, it's like folks forget that they live in New England and forget how to drive in the damn stuff.

Just moved to North Carolina from Vermont.  Vermont drivers are overly cautious and polite, which makes coming to a 4 way stop an exercise in futility as to who will go first (I'm an asshole whose originally from California, so no problem for me).  North Carolina drivers on the other hand are so farking oblivious to what is going on around them, I have an apocalyptic it every morning on my hour long commute.  I've never seen so many people who jump out from a full stop into your lane or who drive in the passing lane while never passing a vehicle.

If you don't count Virginians, there was not much happening during the Revolutionary war.


Apparently your Northern textbooks omitted King's Mountain and the fact that the Carolinas turned the war around for the Colonies. There are more Revolutionary battlefields near the NC-SC battle than you can shake a stick at. (And zero Civil War ones.)
