Every state has it positives and negatives. Like for example: Delaware’s positive is that it has no sales tax and housing is affordable, but the negative is it’s Delaware.
But let’s forget the positives. The folks at PolicyMic decided to be a bunch of Negative Nancys and come up with the statistically worse thing about each state. Here’s what they came up with:
Some of these are pretty bad, or weird. Like that Louisiana has the highest rate of gonorrhea or that Alaska has the most suicides (although most of those were probably people ashamed to be represented by Sarah Palin).
Here in New York the worse thing is average daily commute. I can live with that, especially since my commute is less than 10 minutes, while the state average is 30.
Also, the worse they could come up with for Ohio is nerdiest? They based that on that it has the highest percentage of people who visits libraries. How is that a bad thing? Is this the stupid states making fun of the smart state because they’re really so ashamed of how dumb they are? I guess high school really does prepare you for the real world.
Anyone else think Nebraska (highest rate of females murdered) needs to recruit some of those female criminals from Oklahoma to help even the score?
