I'll take arson I suppose, better off than:
Bestiality, Rape, Ugliest Residents, Gonorrhea, obesity, stroke, ID theft, corruption, most mobile homes, or aids to name a few. One thing that surprised me is that Tennessee and not Illinois had corruption. Chicago politics are infamous for being corrupt

My home state has highest rates of bestiality, odd...
Oregon's homeless problem isn't a shock however.

It's probably advisable that Utah embrace its dysfunction along with the rest of us.

This chart is clearly meant for a chuckle and nothing else. Minnesota hardly has any tornadoes, and "ugly" is completely relative so it's impossible to measure which state is ugliest.

Yes. This is, in part, a fun thing.
I would not be discouraged from moving to Seattle because of the folks practicing bestiality there.

Katzpur, don't be so serious. It's a fun site and nobody cares about receiving porn in the mail anymore(unless kids or animals are involved). It's perfectly natural and even Mormons are considered healthy red blooded Americans.

Ohio's is the only one I saw that's actually good.

I was gonna say Idaho's is pretty positive, if you're of a libertarian bent (as in the govt has the least influence over the people). But then I saw that they referring to have the lowest congressional clout... which sucks for them.
