Awww, I thought it was the 30,000 Somali refugees located in the same neighborhood where there have been numerous attempts at terrorist recruiting and funding.

But, yeah, tornadoes are pretty shameful too...

I was going to have so much fun seeing if Washington was also number one in furry conventions - then I saw that the yearly data from their source was not showing a consistent trend.

How disappointing.

I miss Minnesota. Now I live in the state with the worst high school graduation rates, yet is is run by conservative, religious, gun toting Republicans.

The Democrats in the urban centers don't have a clue. Odds are they have their hands in the till while selling snake oil big gov fixes. The Republicans just don't quite have that last bit of courage of conviction to shoot the poor non-graduating loosers, so they just take their food stamps away instead with hopes to starve them to death.

I'll be honest... The worst problem with Missouri (for those living on the right side) is being extremely proud of St. Louis, only to find out most people don't even know what St. Louis is anymore =.=

Hahaha, suckers! I live in California, I have more problems than anyone on this forum!

Go to another state, and nobody likes you. Why? Because you're a Californian, and that makes you an idiot, because California is the most idiotic state in the US. People immediately know I'm a Californian because of my long hair and tight jeans. And I get a lot of death stares. Sadly, I am one of the few non-idiots in this state, and would gladly live with the people who hate me because I am a Californian.

I am proud to be a Californian!

Haha I was wondering the same thing.

Michigan reportedly has a 9% unemployment rate, not the highest in the nation (http://www.milmi.org...).

I can't find work though and jobs are scarce here.

Wait, what?

Well, I hate California for several reasons. One of them includes the fact that when I go to a different state, people just know that I am a Californian. And they don't like me because of that. I'm not kidding, I was just in Utah, and I got many stares. The people there think poorly of Californians. So do Arizonans, Idahoans, and Nevadans.
All this may sound random and stupid, but all I am saying is this: California sucks.

Alcohol-related motorcycle deaths.

What I find more fvcked up is that there is an old anti-sodomy law on the books here in Virginia that forbids a man and a woman living together unless they are married. Although the enforcement of state anti-sodomy laws is a federal crime, local law enforcement likes to pull that law card just to mess up someone's day.

I was born in the state with the highest rate of gonorrhea, spent most of my life in the state with the highest number of alcohol-related motorcycle deaths, and just moved to the state with the highest stroke rate.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

huh...the lowest teacher salary
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

The one that surprises me the least is that Massachusetts has the worst drivers. If you have mastered the 47th level of Grand Theft Auto, you might be ready to try driving in Boston. To be fair, the locals view it as sport rather than transportation, and it's kind of fun in brutal sort of way.

I live in California. It has the nation's best climate and best scenery, and the worst government. The government is run for the benefit of the rich, the poor, and government employees. Everyone else is screwed. Truman Capote, an author who had a distinctive high-pitched nasal voice, said, "It's a scientific fact that you lose two points off your IQ for every year you live in California." I go to Arizona regularly to recover.

Have you never been on the Mass Pike? Tried to negotiate your way through traffic on the Tobin bridge to get into Boston from the North Shore? Been on I-95 at any point through MA? We're called Massholes for a reason...

If you have mastered the 47th level of Grand Theft Auto, you might be ready to try driving in Boston.

But that might be hyperbolic...

Not really.

lol

and best scenery,

Ok, I'll give you that.

and the worst government.

Truly.

Taking those sources as consistent evidence:

You get premature ejaculation.
You get ejaculation too early.
You get ejaculation too late.
You don't ejaculate.
You can't get it up at all.

This is literally everything. Short of "normal" (which kinda doesn't exist when "normal" is an average that most won't stick to), every ability is done by those who watch porn.

We know three things:

1) There is a weak correlation between extreme sexual desires and extreme porn (which causes which is unfounded and not justified)
2) There is a strong causation between what we watch others doing, causing what we do, as children.
3) The general information on pornography use is terrible.

http://www.bbc.co.uk...

As found, of a search of 40,000 articles on pornography, once one rules out those which are founded on an incredible bias (and therefore has interpretation problems), or just bad science (and therefore has methodology problems), 276 of them are accurate. That is 0.69% of articles published on this topic are accurate. In other words, seven in a thousand. You'd be lucky to find one in a hundred articles on pornography even being true. The study in the area is ludicrously poor, and drawing conclusions from it is even worse.
