Orlando tops Angriest City List!

http://www.menshealth.com/cda/articl...0013281eac____

A study conducted by Men's Health magazine has found that Orlando, Fla., ranks No. 1 on a list of the angriest cities in the nation.

Top 100: Angriest Cities

"Orlando has never been a strategic military target, and yet the folks there are furious," the magazine said.

The magazine looked at the percentage of men with high blood pressure, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and FBI rates for aggravated assaults, as well as workplace deaths from assaults and other violence.

Those numbers were compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Traffic congestion data were also a factor.

Orlando was joined in the top 10 by three other Florida cities -- St. Petersburg, Miami and Jacksonville.

Well, ever since I moved to Ormond Beach, FL, I've generally been extremely angry. I do a good deal of work over in Sanford, so some of those bad vibes must be getting to me.

Yup to many tourists, and lots of them are foreign and NONE of them can drive a motherfucking car!

Why is NY so far down on the list? it should be in the top 10 for sure!

I used to live i n Ormond, and all those old people driving around can be pretty frustrating. You've also got the whole NASCAR and BikeWeek/Biketober decable as well.

As far as Orlando being the angriest city, I don't know.. I live here and am pretty laid back. The traffic doesn't even bother me that much, as I always leave way early to wherever I need to be. The only thing that pisses me off is the amount of spanish-speaking people we have here that refuse to learn how to speak English.

NY has something called public transportation. You don't have to sit in traffic like you do in Florida. Fear not though, Hillsborough County just ok-ed a 4 billion dollar beltway around the bay area. More highways will decrease the traffic!

Interesting, but I have lived in Orlando and NYC and not sure where the criteria comes from...I know I am lot angrier now than I ever was. Yes old drivers are the suck, but I dont think anything compares to how much the MTA gets my blood boiling.

I always knew Baltimore was angry. They have a huge inferiority complex with DC.
