Who the hell are they?

Seriously, I do have to admit that I recognized Hollywood Montrose when I googled him - I didn't know his name. But let's be honest...they are extremely minor celebs. Its rare that people like this get recognized, let alone stalked.

A high percentage of the homeless there specifically migrated to California, as it has a much more merciful climate, and they aren't rounded up and jailed for being homeless like they would be in other states.

This thread is stupid. It's based on a poll from US News that wouldn't have been covered on Faux had it not trashed CA. Plus the notion that somehow Iowa has the best quality of life is laughable.

Homeless people often do choose climate over location. Shocker huh? If you are going to be homeless then some place with good weather is the place to be.

As someone who enjoys living in the SF bay area quite bit; its just terrible here. Don't even think about coming here you will be just miserable. Please spread the word to anyone thinking about moving to SF Bay area.

The devil is in the details -- if you look at the state by state details the whole ranking system is crazy. There's not much sense to most of these rankings but this one is really odd. Simply click bait with little substance targeted at people who like to vent about California.


Anyone who seriously thinks North Dakota has the best quality of life in the entire US should move there. Try the Standing Rock Reservation for starters.

Yes, please stay away from California. Its horrible here, the ocean is too big, the sun shines too much and there's too much to do.

Both Iowa and Minnesota ranked very high on economy and fiscal stability. Quality of life is another matter. Both states ranked in the bottom 10.

North Dakota had an overall ranking at #4, yet the Quality of Life rank was the lowest in the US

California was ranked #32, despite the highest Quality of Life ranking.
