Maps of How Americans Feel about the States

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 

I came across this article on Facebook earlier, and thought it was amusing enough to share. Business Insider had SurveyMoney conduct a survey of about 1600 Americans asking them their opinions on the states based on several questions. Enjoy.

 

 

Bahston.

 

 

Apparently the food sucks in the Midwest.

 

 

Apparently these people aren't fans of baby seal tartar.

 

 

Props to Cali. 

 

 

Dubya won't be pleased. 

 

 

Arnold won't be pleased.

 

 

Shocker,

 

 

Truth.

 

 

Damn yankees.

 

 

Bless their hearts.

 

 

Jerks.

 

 

Mountains or beaches?

 

 

"I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this. I was thinking the same thing. That John Denver's full of shit, man."

 

 

No votes for North Dakota. Sorry ladies.

 

 

Apparently these voters value teeth.

 

 

 

 

Wicked smaaht.

 

 

Apparently dumbness is contagious. Thanks Mississippi.

 

 

Red Sox heads are exploding.

 

 

Red Sox heads are laughing. 

 

 

Secede!!! 

 

 

So much for the Cali love.

 

 

Probably because people forget Oregon is even there.

 

Hope you guys enjoyed. I thought these were pretty funny.

Id say thats pretty accurate on Wisconsin's part.  High scores for drunkenness, niceness and best sports fans.

Ever been there?  On those surveys is about the only way that it looks good.

I think Cali still corners the market on crazy.

I cracks me up how those surveys lay out.  California wins or is near the top of 9 of the positive categories (yes, in case you are wondering, I'm including "crazy" as one of the positives ;)) yet also wins most overrated.  I guess that means we qualify as "polarizing."

 

Also, I've never been to Georgia so I have no dispute that they are the nicest ... however, the friendliest place I've ever been to was Nashville, so my vote would be for Tennessee. :)

 

LOL at the fact that New York somehow has the best and the worst sports fans.  (Maybe Jets and Giants fans voting against each other? ;))

 

And, speaking of New York, I think they get an unfair rap on the "rudest" category.  People from out of state consider them rude because they, heaven forbid, interact with each other, whereas the rest of us stay quiet and play passive-aggressive games.

 

Oh, and I agree with the "Beautiful Scenery" category, although I would have liked to have seen Wyoming get a few more votes.  Love me some Yellowstone!

I lived in CO for about a year in Fort Collins (went to other places for climbing and skiing). It's really really nice in the winter time (Not Fort Collins).

 

CA has all the crazy people from OTHER parts of the country (like me b2_tongue.gif).

For my money, Jackson Hole and Yellowstone have better scenery than anywhere in Colorado.

Funny now New Yorkers are the best AND worst sports fans.

 

And I agree with the survey, Texas should be kicked out of the US. LOL. Texans seem to think everything in Texas is so great, that they should form their own country.

I think it's funny that the SEC states were pretty much left out of both of those categories. We definitely have some of the best and worst fans in the country.

I've been all over the state. It would be a close second in my book, but the Tetons would still be on top. However, I probably would vote for Colorado over Wyoming, because apart from the Northwest corner, Wyoming is pretty boring.

New York has the best and worst sports fans. 

Why is Maine food so good?

NY, CA, FL, TX are prevalent in all because of population.

What makes Colorado so smart? (Not rhetorical)

Pretty much the whole country is underrated.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that we should have topped the list of best scenery.  Not necessarily due to the depth, but moreso to the breadth.  Wyoming has the Tetons, we have Yosemite.  Colorado has whatever this pretty picture shows, but we have Tahoe, Mammoth Mountain, Mono ... the whole Eastern Sierra basically.  Hawaii has the best beaches and active volcanoes, but our beaches aren't far behind and we have Mt. Shasta.  We got deserts, we got valleys, we got it all!

 

Oh, and shouldn't the "hottest people" also count towards the "beautiful scenery?"  Hmmmm?? ;)

If Californians are drunk and crazy, how can there vote count for hottest residents?

 

And yes, we are "wicked smaht"!
