5 Most Miserable States

The well-being of Americans hasn't improved in the past six years, and it even declined slightly in 2013, according to a recent Gallup study. But while national figures remained flat overall, the ranks of the states with the highest well-being scores changed considerably. Hawaii, 2012's top state, fell to number eight in 2013, and the new top-ranked state didn't crack the Top 10 a year ago.

5 most miserable states:
No. 5: Ohio
No. 4: Alabama
No. 3. Mississippi
No. 2: Kentucky
No. 1: West Virginia

Lovely, I live in Ohio, But what I noticed, with the exception of Ohio, the rest are all southern states.

5 happiest states:
No. 5: Montana
No. 4: Minnesota eh
3: Nebraska
No. 2: South Dakota
1: North Dakota

All rural states, no big city pressures.

2. And I was thinking that maybe there was something to not dealing with traffic.

But I am sure you are right about the boom. They think they struck gold, black gold.

3. And when the consequences wash down on them, they'll be moving into our neighborhoods


having made their own uninhabitable. It's like Texass, if they would just stay there in the mess they made, who would care how awful they are? But they insist on coming out into the closer-to-sane world and telling everybody how wonderful it is in the place they don't live anymore and how we should all shit in our own beds like they have in theirs.
