We've got some room in California sir, nice & hot in many places.

But isnt there poop everywhere?  Chuckle

Well here in Sacramento ecoli and other stank has reached a point in the river areas through town it is not recommended to go into the water any more....dog shit too, but I think the Bay Area is masters of poop. Minor rivalry going on between both factions out this way.
When in doubt, roll the bones.

From my understanding you guys have a whole lot less guns per capita. I'm curious how this influences types of crime. I watched a Drugs Inc episode awhile back from National Geographic. Was in Oakland.

There was a swat group that was going to raid a place. The leader of the team said they were concerned about the resistance, and if he felt his team was in too much danger they'd say fk it and not raid.

I mean think about that.

They did raid, armored vehicle through the fence, got the job done. But I guess in some places the fellas in the drug trade are so heavily armed police may debate whether to even try to bring them down.

This isn't a guns are bad m'kay post, it's how dangerous the drug trade is in some places here.

Here's that episode

No guns, basically.

You need a really good reason to have one, like being a member of a shooting club. You can’t just have one for self defence. I don’t know anyone that owns a gun. I have never seen one up close. It’s just a different culture.

I'm sure glad that New York City wasnt on your list because if it were, I wouldn't have ever believed it.

NYC is awesomely diversified and full of character!

That "wet cold" really gets right into your bones.

Why did people even settle in areas where it gets cold?  Were they morons?  There is plenty of room down south still.  I say move everything south.

I would say it is a form of insanity. I live where it can get quite cold in winter. I hate the cold, the snow and I really hate ice. However a part of me also loved the struggle against the cold. There is something very primal and satisfying about fighting the cold with a wood stove. Then there is the feeling you get from making a hot stew or soup on a bitter cold day. As much as I hate snow and ice I can't deny they make for a very pretty landscape. It's not a bad way to live when you are young. Being old in a cold climate is not fun to say the least.

According to a report by Business Insider, the title of the most miserable city in the United States goes to…

…Gary, Indiana.

BI says that the 50 “most miserable cities” are made so mostly by poverty and a lack of opportunities to pull oneself out of poverty.

   We’ve identified the 50 most miserable cities in the US, using census data from 1,000 cities, taking into consideration population change (because if people are leaving it’s usually for a good reason), the percentage of people working, median household incomes, the percentage of people without healthcare, median commute times, and the number of people living in poverty. (source)

Business Insider also took into account the havoc wrought by natural disasters, blight (abandoned houses), crime, and addiction rates. This spreadsheet shows how they arrived at their conclusions using data from the US Census Bureau.
Why is Gary, Indiana so miserable?

Gary used to be a hub of manufacturing, but those jobs have long-since gone elsewhere. When the jobs went away, so did many of the residents. Of the ones who remain, barely 50% are employed and 36% live under the poverty line.

The only positive effect of the struggling population is that when people left, certain crimes left, also.

   A drug-enforcement agent who grew up in the area told The Guardian in 2017: “We used to be the murder capital of the US, but there is hardly anybody left to kill. We used to be the drug capital of the US, but for that you need money, and there aren’t jobs or things to steal here.” (source)

But Gary isn’t the only place that people can’t get ahead.
Three states have several miserable cities.

If you’ve been paying attention to the homelessness crisis and the fecal matter in the streets, you will probably be unsurprised to hear that California has more miserable cities than any other state, with 10 falling into the 50 most miserable list.

California is followed by New Jersey, with nine miserable cities, and Florida, with six.

The other miserable cities on the list are scattered across the country. Things are so bad in many of these cities that it’s safe to say, the SHTF has quietly arrived and set up camp, while the rest of the country remains relatively oblivious to their plights.
Why makes these cities so “miserable?”

Many of the “most miserable cities” have stories of violence, natural disasters, drug addiction, and crumbling infrastructures. Quite a few have factories that have moved elsewhere, leaving a large swath of the population unemployed and living in poverty. It’s easy to tell people they need to get jobs. But people in these places know that for many, there are no jobs to get. Housing is unaffordable on the local average wages for those who do have jobs.
