But yeah. U-M is probably the only redeeming thing in that state.

You are in the Holy Land and speak of the barbarians that way? Off with your head!

Yes! If you don't, I will.

I guess the weather is great for about nine months, but three months are pretty brutal, not to mention the constant flooding whenever it rains and the whole possibility of another catastrophic storm.

I love the town and could spend much more time singing its praises, but it's pretty miserable.

Piling on New Orleans has become politically incorrect. If we ignore its problems, they will undoubtedly go away.

I haven't been to most of the cities on that list. Of the big cities I have been to, I feel Jacksonville, Orlando, Kansas Shitty, and Houston are pretty miserable. I actually love Miami. Seriously. It's like the capital of the Third World, the closest you can come to leaving the country without actually doing so. Great culture, amazing restaurants, just really great.

Philly I can see - but I love Albuquerque...hey, what's wrong with Albuquerque?

live in the suburbs of St. Louis and I agree that the city absolutely sucks. But drive 15-20 minutes west and everything is beautiful. The city of Clayton, located 20-25 mins from the arch is the area with the most expensive land in the whole state. Meh, I always feel obligated to stand up for my city/state. I don't know why that is.

It's violent, polluted, ugly and there's basically no reason to ever be there. A lot of gangs and a lot of anger and a lot of corruption. It's a mean city.

Stockton and Modesto are truly miserable towns. I'd bump Modesto up to #2.

Yup. Both shitholes. Buffalo is worse though.

But the skiing near buffalo is the best option for anyone in living around toronto unless you want to pay a fortune (30-40k+5k/yr) for private clubs. We used to rent a condo in Ellicotville (sp?) every winter when i was younger.

Well, I am not a big skier, so for me, it's just hell.

Um, Chicago should not be on the same list as Stockton.
