Reputations of States - Some fun maps

As a market researcher, I'll preface this by saying that it's a panel from one of the worst businesses in our industry and so it's not really generalizable, but nonetheless it's kind of fun.

I suspect that there's a bit of a problem in that people may vote for their own states, which probably should be taken out of the data. As such, I figure that bigger states are amplified. I suspect that it wouldn't change the conclusions, though.

Probably. We used to travel cross country over summer vacation when I was a kid. Kansas is definitely one of the worst. Even the deserts of Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico are way more intriguing and have much better scenery then Kansas. Flat, no mountains, no nothing Kansas was always one of the worst drives on those trips. Wed take different routes every year but every 3rd year or so you were repeating a previous route and the drive across Kansas always sucked.

New York state in general or Manhattan?

If you think Manhattan women are ugly, you're doing it wrong.

Yeah, it sucks pretty hard. There are a handful of nice areas (particularly the area around Galena in the northwestern part of the state) but they are few and far between. Around here, the Fox River valley is about as good as it gets. Some people get off on Lake Michigan, but I don't really give a crap. I guess seeing it out the window at work for 20 years will do that for you.

I've made that ****ing drive down I-55 between Chicago and St. Louis a thousand times. It sucks, sucks, sucks.

Have you driven the salt flats?

I made the drive from St. Louis to L.A. once. Kansas and eastern Colorado were horrific, but after that, it was great. Although much of that was just seeing it for the first time. I think the desert areas in Utah, Nevada and California would get old really damn quick if you had to see them every day.

I sure did. I even witnessed water running in the Arickaree River on two different occasions. (It was dry 99% of the time)

IIRC, I made the population 36 when I moved there.

Yeah, but if you keep your eyes peeled you might see the tree.

On the trip that I mentioned, we drove down through Utah. The north part of that trip (through SLC) sucked hard. It's basically three hours of billboards and terrible drivers.

Once you are out of that metro area, the scenery is amazing but the drivers still suck.
