Same with Arizona's alcoholism rate.

Not to say Nebraska's problem isn't bad (and surprisingly a lot of Women do get murdered here. Remember the movie "Boys Don't Cry" that took place in Nebraska and was based off of the Tina Brandon Murder).

Anyway, i'd say the biggest problem is that we have high taxes, at least in my opinion. Compared to states like Iowa and South Dakota we have high taxes, which I don't get since were probably the most Republican state in the Midwest.

OMG , that is a good movie , Hillary was awesome playing the transgender.

That sit stating North Carolina has horrible pay its true and this past year they passed legislation that those who acheive their Masters will not get a raise.

Things I find horrible is our General Assembly, yeah the stuff your hearing on the news and late night hosts make fun of and cant wait for the day when A1 is repealed, then Ill dance on the grave of the rep who sponsored it.

Anyways, I hate the humidity, ticks, palmetto bugs and the obesity.

South Carolina; just down right backwards and slow to keep up with the times.
Rock bottom in the 50 states.

It doesn't skew the data. Skew means the data is manipulated and the results are misleading. The people who live on the reservations are just as much South Dakotans as anyone else living in the state.

Anyway, whenever I think of negative in SD I think of a documentary they made us watch one year in health class about the alarmingly high teen suicide rate in Pierre.

Everything outside the bastions of civilization that are its 3 major cities: Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati. I'll leave out the Eastern counties bordering PA because of their natural beauty. Oh, also the gerrymandering makes me mad.

New York has much bigger problems than "Long Commute". There's suburban sprawl east of NYC, as well as the pretentiousness of lower Westchester. Dique "Long Commute" is the problem

Someone just looking at this list might think SD is a dangerous place. That is misleading. As for Pierre, I can't say that's too surprising. It's a dump.

The link's not working for me but if it's that one that says Ohio's full of nerds because of its libraries, then it's bogus.
