Funny Foto Friday: The Worst State

This morning was a tough one.  I could not drag my sorry butt out of bed.  Granted, I did get up and feed my son at 2:30 and then again at 4:30 (which was too close together - doh) but honestly that shouldn't be an excuse.  Looks like I'm going to run a few extra during my long run tomorrow - and I won't hit 40 miles this week.  BLEH!

---------------------------------------------

Statistics are fun, generalizations are dangerous.  What do you get when you mix fun and dangerous!?!? Arrested followed by child support...   You get hilarity!!! 

Happy Friday!

Yeah for alcoholism!! I'll take that over North Dakota--ouch.

40 miles a week is lots. Start thinking quality over quantity and don't be down on yourself your still doing great.

C2Iowa said...

wow. that is a lot to think about. I figured that Iowa would be tied to Meth -- yet, old and moldy works.

Julie said...

Oregon = Homelessness. That makes me really sad. But it's true.

Poor North Dakota. Now, how did they determine that?!?!

Chad said...

I grew up in Gonorrhea, but now I live in Alcoholism.

Shawn said...

Please notice that Canada is all white and virginal in the representation of North America.....yep, that sounds like us all right!

So are you going to do the ZOMBIE run? Hang in there...he will start to sleep through the night one day...you won't, but he will!!!

Have a great weekend.

Runners Fuel said...

I have the worst air pollution!!

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

Gonorrhea? That's it?! With all of our "worsts" all we get is gonorrhea?
P.S. No way is Maine the dumbest state. I've been there and I've been to Mississippi. No contest.

GeorgiaSnail said...

I can think of a few jokes in poor taste in regards to N. Dakota/S. Dakota...nah, I'll try and keep my karma at a decent level today....

Georgia = most sickly?!?!

Utah=porn usage...now there is an interesting link...

Oh Adam, I remember those days of semi-sleepless nights oh so well! It has just been recently (past 4 months) that we are getting really good sleep again. Having an infant is brutal...wonderful but HARD! Add nursing in the mix and there was no running/training for me. And then when People asked me to be on their HOod to Coast team I would just laugh! Ha, sleep was way to important to me to give it up even for that cool race. Hope you have a great Friday. And Yup, lots of homeless people here in Oregon. Homeless, with a guitar, braids and a bong.

Mississippi: highest rate of obesity (35.3 percent of total population)

BONUS facts: Mississippi ranks last in the most number of categories. These include highest rate of child poverty (31.9 percent), highest rate of infant mortality (10.3 percent) lowest median household income ($35,078), highest teen birth rate (71.9 per 1,000 women aged 15 to 19) and highest overall rate of STDs.

Yeah, I live in MS - but not from here.

funderson said...

Wow..I'm not very good at cocaine use so I quess I should move back to Utah... I excell at porn usage. : )

BrianFlash said...

Ironic that North Dakota is ugliest yet South Dakota leads in rapes.

Missouri is also proudly the state with the most puppy mills...

Rose said...

Ohio's "bad thing" doesn't seem so bad to me.

I lived there for four years. It should read "creepy people missing teeth sporting confederate flags even though Ohio put forth some pretty fucking rad leaders for the North."

Chanda M. DeFoor said...

Most sickly? Ugh... I believe it knowing how some of my FB friends complain on their posts.
I see a trend in the southern states.

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

Nebraska = violence on women (maybe during a poor football season?!)

Hilarious map! Utah, really?!!

Jim ... 50after40 said...

C'mon man, now I don't wanna run Sioux Falls, ND later this year!

Jim ... 50after40 said...

oops ... SD - sorry ND, you're just ugly.

ShutUpandRun said...

I live in cocaine right now, but wish I lived in beastiality. So much more fun.

Jen said...

I am so pissed right now. Jersey - taxes? That's it!!?? We've got Newark, The Soprano's, Atlantic City, and Snookie and we get stuck with lame and boring taxes. Where's the good story and conversation in that????

Fugget bout it… I'm fist pumping in protest… Ya know what I'm tawkin' about… taxes. yeesh.

Jamie said...

Alcoholism is not so bad compared to the other states!

jess said...

I was born in Michigan but live in Ohio. I love how I come from an unemployment state but live in a nerdy state! hahahahhahah

This map is awesome.

I thought you might like this. Since you are so fasinated with poo.

Zaneta said...

according to your map... i'm a nerd lol... hmm, there might be some truth to that map... maybe just a little...

Cynthia O'H said...

I have to agree with Shawn. The question now is: is it a good thing that I live in Canada?

Pam said...

Could mine be any more boring? Corruption? Really?

I personally think it should have been "sports teams" ...

Chris K said...

I didn't know that Kovas was from Maine.

Julie said...

Hmmm, tornadoes for Minnesota. I guess we have had several over the past few years.

Hey, have a great weekend!

The Laminator said...

We have the worst commute! Unfortunately, I kinda agree with the =P

Jill said...

Watch out, Chris K., Kovas may come and steal your abusive air pollutant SUV!

I wonder if the stork meant to drop me off in Ohio instead of Iowa...I'll go do a little cocaine with my kidss and ponder this.

kilax said...

I don't get the Iowa one. What does that mean?

Luke said...

worst int he us for teacher salary...guess what my wife does for a living?

Dash said...

ha, my husband wants a motor cycle so bad... VA is motor-cycle death state. I think that answers that question.

Sorry about your run, clearly your body needs the sleep!

Detroit Runner said...

Yes, the job market sucks in Michigan!

Kathy said...

Joining Canada in the pure whiteness of Mexico. Course I was born in Nerd, moved to Arson, then Gonorrhea, then up to either Heart Attack or Motorcycle Deaths (Virgina), then out to Air Pollution, down to Stroke and back to Smog state with a short stay in Cocaine for 2 weeks.

Around 3 months they tend to hit a growth spurt and will want to nurse All Night Long. Enjoy! The first year goes by entirely TOO fast!

Andrew Opala said...

That's interesting ... I don't follow any blogs from New Mexico! (probably because they don't follow me)

Andrew Opala said...

P.S. I didn't know you were lactating - good for you - now you can feed your son more often!

...Barbie... said...

By far, my favorite is Utah. Ahh, Utah.
