Miami is One of the Angriest Cities in America

Categories: Survey Says
You wouldn't like us when we're angry.
Nothing pisses us off more than these statisically-flawed, silly little city rankings lists. Just in the past few weeks we've learned that Miami is one of America's most rude, vain, and miserable cities. Fittingly, Men's Health now tells us that when it comes to anger issues we're in the top ten. 

The fitness and health rag based their ratings on "aggravated assaults per capita (FBI), the number of people with high blood pressure (CDC), the amount of time spent in traffic during rush hour (Texas Transportation Institute), and the number of anger-management specialists per capita (American Psychological Association)." The inclusion of traffic was a pretty good tip-off we weren't going to come off on the serene end of the list. 

In fact, we're number ten (or as the mag for some reason lists it, the 91st least-non-angry). Here's the top ten: 
100 Detroit, MI
99 Baltimore, MD
98 St. Petersburg, FL
97 Las Vegas, NV
96 Newark, NJ
95 Charleston, WV
94 Dallas, TX
93 Houston, TX
92 Philadelphia, PA
91 Miami, FL

Burlington, VT is apparently America's least angry city. They've got gay marriage and lots of coat factories up there, which is apparently enough to make anyone happy.

As for most of these lists we have no idea if they mean the actual City of Miami, all of Miami-Dade or the greater South Florida region.

It is true , detroit is bad and include about 30 miles around it. But in the suburbs the anger is more subtle such as people not responding to each other, no eye contact, hostile reactions to conversation, complaining etc. It is a miserable place to live, no social life etc. Yeh i would move but have committments here. I was at a health club and the only two women who talk to me was from Toledo, which is a small nice place to visit. and another from North Carolina, they were both complaining how unfriendly the people were in the Detroit area. I told them to get used to it , its alway been this way. About 12 yrs ago, USA today said that the detroit area was the most polarized are in the USA , still is.


its true detroit is bad, mean, dangerous, and include about a 30 miles from detroit also but the anger is in inattention, no eye contact and other subtle behaviors


Umm, the Burlington coat factory is in Burlington, NEW JERSEY.But we do have a gorgeous lake for the summer and plenty of skiing in the winter.and we don't take ourselves too seriously.vtchick


I lived in Miami and Vegas, and I can tell you that Vegas residents are FAR angrier than Miamians, please pay no attention to these lists, they are so ridiculous. The formulas that they claim to use are so "stupid". Buy these dodo heads a bus ticket and have them travel every city and then do some real journalism.


Maybe St. Pete is so pissed off because of all the Tea Party rallies


we're less angry that St. Pete ... ?

Now i'm pissed ...


This article really pisses me off!


You can blame whoever is in charge of the construction on and around Brickell.
