Everyone thinks their home town is the craziest. “Oh man. Crazy times back then. You think this place is crazy?! Dude. Nothing like my town.” Wouldn’t it be fun if someone ruined all those arguments by making up random data points and then ranking the cities accordingly?
The Daily Beast did just that. We didn’t win.
St. Louis came in at #21 with 20 psychiatrists per capita, a stress score* of 23, a 34 on eccentricity*, a drinking rating* of 22 and the following comment:
Despite Missouri’s generally lenient open-container laws (read: there aren’t many), it is illegal on the curb of any city street to drink beer from a bucket.
Our cross-town retarded brother we don’t talk about but won’t leave us alone, Kansas City came in just after us at #23 overall.
A selection of other cities and their scores:
#5 Las Vegas
#57 Salt Lake City
