^ LOL at those tier 3 cities ... and half of the tier 2's.

I'm not sure if that list is supposed to be a joke, but Montgomery, Birmingham, Raleigh and Louisville get mentioned while Washington, D.C., Miami, Seattle, San Francisco, Dallas, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Detroit, Tampa and others don't?

LOL I didn't want to spend two hour typing all those cities. They are just sample cities. Of course I could have listed more in all three tiers. I think I was petty accurate with all the tiers though. The cities are classified more on importance, transportation, attractions, infrastructure and urban qualities more so than population.

Philadelphia is much worse than Kansas City, though most Americans don't agree.

New Orleans is a notable exception.

And Sacramento, San Jose, Oakland, and Fresno are all ****holes and/or boring. You must be from the Bay to think that Fresno matters to anyone
