Well, as many people have said, Iceland seems like a pretty nice place. That said, there are a few cities that I'd rather not live in:
Gary, Indiana (Though I don't think I've ever even seen a picture of it, is crime really that bad?)

East Side of L.A.: I've been there several times, and no thanks.

Atlanta doesn't sound so great, although given the entire city to chose from (as opposed to "LA's East Side), I'm sure I could find something nice.

Vegas doesn't interest me in the least.

I'm not sure I would think being "banished to Iceland" would be so horrific. It is suppose to have some great natural beauty, outdoor acitivites, and a rocking big city.

In fact, I'd probably rather live in Iceland than so many of the cities in the list, I don't know where to start. And what's up with the "East Side" in parentheses about LA? Or the "Castro District" in SF?

Would 120,000 really be considered a big city?

I stand corrected. I guess I figured Reykjavik was closer to half a million. Doesn't mean I won't visit on the way home from London sometime.
