    Why Your State Sucks: The Great American Map of Fail



    Why Your State Sucks: The Great American Map of Fail - TIME NewsFeed

    TIME developed a map of what each state is the worst in the nation at. Some of them are light-hearted and subjective, others are big problems for the state in question. As a DC resident, my home is not listed on here...but I can think of many things that DC is probably the worst in the country at.

    Why does YOUR state suck? Do you know of any other things that your state (or any state) manages to screw up worse than every other state?

    That one's easy. SPORTS. DC just plain sucks at sports. I have been an ailing wizards fan for many years. I'm sure redskins and nationals fans are just as pissed off. Also Maryland is worst at abortions? Does that mean they perform the least or the most? I'd like to think it's the least.

    EDIT: NEVERMIND, Delaware is worst at abortions, I misread. Maryland is worst at AIDS. WTF? Is that a good or bad thing? *facepalm*

    EDIT: I'm sorry kandahar, seems the creator of the Image decided to leave DC out because it was the worst at so many things:

    That's true. DC's sports teams aren't very good. I'm not a big sports fan, although I do enjoy DC United. I'm sure we also lead the nation in much more serious matters, like the overall crime rate, the poverty rate, and wealth disparity.

    It's Delaware actually...and I would assume it means they perform the most. Maryland's dubious claim to fame is the highest AIDS rate in the country.

    Yours sucks by not being big enough to put some words on it telling us of its suckage.

    Gotta go water my homeless, though..........

    Aside from sports, first and foremost DC is probably the worst at getting representation in Congress...

    We don't suck at driving. We just have low patience which causes a lot of accidents.

    I guess it's not really fair to compare DC to other states, comparing it to other urban areas and cities would perhaps be a more fair comparison. But none of this takes away from the fact that DC is effffed up. At least it's better than when crack was going on in the 80s.

    The one that most surprises me is Washington and beastiality. I mean I know grunge music people are a little on the woof side, but that just goes too far ...

    Is it any shock Time, a liberal rag would make a map ****ting on States, and a Liberal would post it as if it's a good thing to post?

    Where is the map of "Why your state rocks"?

    Oh wait, America sucks, can't have such a thing.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I think it's funny that Utah is first in porn usage...although perhaps that shouldn't be surprising.
