Southbridge, VA. It's so small, I can barely breathe. It has all the crime of DC(and TRAFFIC!), without the happiness. In summer, it's hot as hell. It never snows in winter. There are big, scary storms in Spring. Fall is the only season here that doesn't suck. All my friends moved away years ago. WHY CAN'T I COME WITH?!

Man, oh man....

I'll just copy and paste something I said about it before:

Apparently, Stockton is the "Most Miserable" city in the U.S.

" No. 1 Stockton, Calif.

Only 15% of Stockton adults have a college degree, which is one of the lowest rates in the U.S. Unemployment is expected to hit 15% in 2010, while housing prices should keep falling back to their mid-1990s level when the median home price was $130,000.


Stockton ranks in the bottom seven in four of the nine categories we looked at: commute times, income tax rates, unemployment and violent crime. Only New York City has a higher income tax rate than what Stockton, and all California residents, are forced to pay.

Stockton was ground zero for the housing boom and now the subsequent bust. Home prices more than tripled between 1998 and 2005 and then came crashing down last year. Stockton had the country's highest foreclosure rate last year at 9.5%, according to RealtyTrac, an online marketer of foreclosed property. Things are not looking much brighter in 2009 as housing prices are expected to fall another 36% on the heels of a 39% drop in 2008. Also, unemployment is expected to jump to 13.3% from 10.4%, according to economic research firm Moody's Economy.com.

"We are engaging the entire community and encouraging everyone to get involved and help us find solutions that meet the needs of our community," says Stockton Mayor Ann Johnston. "Volunteerism is encouraged, looking out for your neighbor, and taking personal responsibility where individuals can make a difference. We are partnering with all community organizations--schools, churches, non-profits-- to provide support services and help individuals and families get through these difficult times."

So you guys caused the entire economic crisis, man that's a crime that doesn't bare thinking about :P

For dovercourt, my actual home-town, crime rates are as follows;
4.3 burglaries per 1000 people
0.3 robberies per 1000 people
1.3 vehicle crimes per 1000 people
4.7 violent crimes per 1000 people
25 antisocial behaviours per 1000 people
Overall the avarage number of crimes is 25.3, a 40% increase over last years 19.3 crimes per 1000 people

In my 'spiritual home' of frinton where i go to skewl and such, the crime rates are as follows;
0.7 burglaries per 1000 people
0.0 robberies per 1000 people
1.7 vehicle crimes per 1000 people
1.7 violent crimes per 1000 people
7 antisocial behaviours per 1000 people
Overall the avarage number of crimes is 8, a 4% decrease over last years 8.3 crimes per 1000 people

The village i used to grow up in which i thought was a much rougher area than this place has a crime rate of 3.7 per 1000 shows how wrong i was (2 burglary, 0 robbery, 1 vehicle crime, 1 violent crime, 1antisocial behavior).

Unlike most of you, I am not from the States. I am from France but I currently live in the Andalusia, in the South of Spain. That's a very beautiful city :)
