Am I in the Matrix?
States I lived. 6 months or longer:
5. New York
I fully expected NJ to be ranked around the same as all of the Bible Belt states
This map further illustrates what so many of us already knew. North Carolina is the best Carolina.
I've never liked you.
I'm moving to Minnesota!
Virginia only 40 spots higher than West Virginia? Feels like we sshoul be farther apart.
Ha. Louisiana is a bunch of morons. Glad I live in Alabama.
Thanks a lot, Central/Western PA.
Minnesota #3...Texas #38
Yeah..I'm calling out some of the criteria. Frozen balls and a lack of voter wisdom are clearly on the list. Funny that people are moving in droves from several high ranked states to lower ranked states.
Nah man, that's all Philly.
Ohio would be top ten if we could get rid of these cities........
Another subjective ranking. *Yawn*
2. North Carolina
8. New York
Minnesota wouldn’t be bad except for the godawful weather. San Diego was nice - California was not. NYC was a hellhole - upstate looked much better in the limited chances I had to see it.
Not really, New Jersey’s high ranking is a direct reflection of having major population density cities to the North and the South of it.
I drive through Central and Western PA multiple times a year. Including this weekend. Depressed towns all over the place.
So, half of your state sucks? That's not a good ratio...
Columbus is the soul reason Ohio isn’t in the bottom 5
During El Chapos drug trial court documents revealed he used Franklinton as a major hub for his operation, Franklintons crime rate is 160% higher than the national average for a reason. As for the overall safety in Columbus its pretty bad as you know, check this....
The overall crime rate in Columbus is 62% higher than the national average. For every 100,000 people, there are 12.21 daily crimes that occur in Columbus. Columbus is safer than 15% of the cities in the United States. In Columbus you have a 1 in 23 chance of becoming a victim of any crime.
This is me the last time I spent the night in Columbus(last year)......
Didnt we do this thread last night?
Jersey is a pretty wealthy state, they tax the hell out of people but there is a ton of cabbage here (I work here but live in NYC now).
2017 crime index rating (the higher the number the higher the crime rate)
Cleveland crime rate: 786.2
Columbus crime rate: 419.1
National Average: 284.4
That does suck. We still have old textile mills standing that have long closed and the neighborhoods around them are pretty much run down and economically depressed. Shitty thing is most towns don't have the cash to raze them and clean the property up.
As ever, the Devil is in the details. California and Illinois, with their horrible record of fiscal stability, ahead of Texas? I would love to see how the raw data was tabulated. When one can manipulate the data in the direction they choose, the numbers here could be inverted...
Would you say a big reason they get away w high taxation is bc NYC is as bad or worse in that area? IOW no low tax competition around for people to have a 2nd option?
They used median income but not cost of living.
A huge factor. How do you leave off COL? Dumbasses. There's a reason a bazillion people are moving to TX, GA, FL etc. and it's not bc people are uneducated, poor...it's bc people are tired of throwing money down a crap hole via taxes, etc..
I did a project for a couple months outside of Hazleton about 10 years ago. Yeah, dying old coal mining towns all over. You can tell they never had much money and now they were even more dilapidated. There was hardly anybody around under 40 and most looked to be in their 50s at the youngest. They were just depressing.
Yes, that's a rather large oversight, don't ya think. Has to be a kid.
Yep as in top 5 category.
They also have some high margin industries like financial services that fled NYC and some pharmaceutical firms......but the high costs are choking off growth, strangling new firms from starting up and steadily chasing residents out. The Governor Phil Murphy is your standard elitist authoritarian d*ckwad now that he made a pile of cash in I-banking.
LOL! Then that would be a completely skewed picture of how states actually rank. They should be using median income at PPP. Of course if you do that, some “rich” states don’t look nearly as rich anymore....
Look at California. A single person in San Francisco making $125,000 per year is barely getting by and living fairly modestly. On that same salary in Tulsa or Kansas City or Pensacola, etc etc that same person is living pretty comfortably.
Dare to dream of living in a top 20 state...and be forced to work til you're 85...lol..
Are you freaking kidding me? No amount of 70 degree days and killer scenery is worth this..^^
How refreshing. A thread that already exists being duplicated.
I will admit their roads are paved....
Most of us would call that a dump. In most of the country, that property would struggle to draw $100,000....so long as it’s in a good neighborhood.
Here in greater Charlotte median house prices are in the neighborhood of $180,000. Those are on bigger lots and are probably more in the range of 1900 square feet instead of 1400.....so figure 3br/2bath instead of 2 and 1. Oh, and that’s for a relatively new brick structure instead of something made of wood and built in 1923. That’s a typical price range for most of the country.
That will do it
The PROPERTY is 1,450 sq ft. That place is a dump by every measure. The worst apartment I ever lived in was 680 sq ft.
Here are the numbers on that San Fran property..
2 beds,1 bath
1450 sqft lot size
Like some of those GOAT or "Worst EVER" lists on Facebook. Had to be done by someone with AOC-level stupidity...
