Not Texas though.

I am glad to not see it on this list, and Illinois is absent too. Even more awesome. And of course California isn't on here. This is a win for me.

What do you think of this list?
Many of them are states less urbanized, it's not the "big city" life, with stress..But you can see NY on the list, so for it I'd say "welfare state"
For Florida I'm not surprised
And Texas/California aren't there !

you see, this right here is the type of nonsense that gets these thread wars going. never again do i want to a hear a californian (or a new yorker) try to claim that they never start these arguments. because this is proof right here . absolutely ridiculous

No more stupid than claiming New York is "too big" to have a beltway or loop around it, is it?
