And no, outside of the elderly, most people do NOT spend 99% of their time indoors. That is less than 15 minutes a day. Close if you are a "gamer" who watches a lot of fantasy epics, perhaps, but not for the rest of us.
You're the dork loser!

I generally agree with this. Just in case Beasley gave you the wrong impression, the overwhelming majority of Baltimore area residents work in the Baltimore area (which contains 2.7 million people.) I would agree that the Baltimore job market is "nothing great." Still, Baltimore is doing a fairly good job of attracting and retaining young people. If you want to live in affordable major northeast city that has a acceptable job market, Baltimore and Philadelphia are about your only options.

Indy is slightly more affordable than Columbus and has a much better Downtown along with being closer to Chicago, and St Louis.
Columbus is a good choice if you love college sports and Ohio State
I agree Columbus downtown isn't as visitor friendly but the city has way stronger urban neighborhoods Around downtown. There is nothing like the short north or German village in all of Indiana let alone Indy. Columbus' urban core is on a whole more dense and feels more like a big city.

For most people who work in a factory/warehouse or desk job, most of the day is spent indoors. People who are actually employed might go do something recreational outdoors every other weekend.

Due to proximity to the DC area, Baltimore likely has a faster growing economy at the moment, but Philadelphia is gaining traction. It has been one of the slower recovering cities post-recession--largely due to massive cuts in local government--but 2015 is poised to be a much better year all around.

According to Manpower, both Baltimore and Philadelphia have similar net hiring employment outlooks for Q1-2015 (12% and 11%, respectively): http://manpowergroup.us/meos/2015/Q1...rt_Q1_2015.pdf
