Mississippi, Illinois, Massachusetts (for drivers), Alaska, Wyoming, & West Virginia aren't even positive things. Yikes! And WTF, they absolutely bashed the hell out of Nevada and then say "but they have more mountain ranges than anywhere else" to try to redeem what they said.

But all the other states were decent, even though they pointed out the obvious for like nearly all of them. But I did learn something new about Kentucky, Arizona, Idaho, & Rhode Island. Pretty cool.

I like this list... you actually learn something about an area but it can't be taken too seriously. Some fit stereotypes (WV) and some are pretty surprising (UT) A nice change from the typical "My State/City is better than your State/City" threads on here.

Especially since they're cornered to basically two areas of Chicago and then E. St. Louis.

It says around 0.8%-1.0% of the population is in a gang. What about the other 99.2% of the population/state!

Massachusetts ranks #1 for speeding tickets, I'm not surprised. They hand em out like candy up there, especially for out of staters, jerks.

I like Mississippi's best. I couldn't figure out what in the world that was when I saw the image on the map.
