Over on MSN Health and Fitness, there is a study entitled "How Angry Is Your City?" which lists the top 100 angriest cities in America. Omaha, the world headquarters of JoeSchmidt.com, ranks a measly 89th on the list (note to self: work on being more angry).
Factors they measured to compile the angriest cities in the US were percentage of High blood pressure in men, FBI rates for aggravated assaults (is there such a thing as an un-aggravated assault?), workplace deaths from assaults and other violence, traffic congestion data, and speeding citations per state.
What's the angriest city in the US you ask? Well it's Orlando, FL of course. Which isn't so surprising. I mean come on, imagine living in a perpetual tourist trap compounded by seniors making their 4:30 mad dash for the closest waffle house and you've got a time bomb waiting to go off.
New Orleans is surprisingly not anywhere to be found in the top 100. If I had to place money on it, I would've sworn New Orleans hands down would have been the angriest city in America. But maybe that's just me, I dunno.
