Not too bad Philly....but I wonder how most of your residents feel....esp when at one point it was voted the city with the most out of shape unattractive people aside from most depressing and miserable ...

Forbes.com has released its annual list of America’s Most Miserable Cities, and for the fourth year in a row, Philadelphia isn’t on it.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Detroit topped the list, with nearby Flint, Michigan coming in second.
Forbes says they arrived at the data by taking a localized approach, considering factors like violent crime, unemployment, foreclosure, home prices and even commute times and weather. But they also tweaked their methods for 2013, dropping data like political corruption and pro sports team success (which might have had an impact, considering Philly apparently has the most depressed NFL fans). lol this is hard to believe....

Oh, Joy. Forbes, that renowned bastion of scientific and meaningful ranking lists, much beloved by city-data,
has not included Philadelphia on their latest bit of clickbait.
/sarcasm

The last time Philadelphia ranked high on the Forbes misery index was back in 2010, when we came in 20th. Unfortunately, the news for nearby Camden and Atlantic City hasn’t been quite as good: Camden ranked 13th, while AC came in 15th this year.
New York City is the tenth most miserable. you're in NYC right? lol

I'm just the messenger......
