    They need more important questions like...Do you hate Mexicans? Do the blacks scare you if you see more than two in a group? Do southern people talk like retards? Would you live in a state that's gonna fall in the ocean at some point? Would you sleep with your sister if she was cute? Have you ever actually been to Louisville? Are you one that is comfortable with your state being a hotspot for anti-government militia groups? Have you ever been friends with someone named Muffy? Or Claire? Or Anderson? or Chaz?

    See with just a gew racial/class steriotyping, they could get this much more acurate.

    Apparently, the New Haven chamber of commerce is fellating someone at this website, because I think every person has gotten that in their results.

    The list is worthless, because I like the suburbs. So I put big city rather than medium or small.

    I got

    Carlisle, PA - no thanks
    Long Island - meh, prefer Westchester or even Jersey, besides someone should let them know there are a lot of different places on Long Island
    Seattle
    NYC
    Cincinnati
    Philadelphia
    Manhattan
    Knoxville, TN
    Salt Lake City
    Denver
    Norfolk, VA
    Pittsburgh
    Louisville, KY
    Richmond, VA
    Oklahoma City
    Charlotte, NC
    Nashville, TN
    Albany, NY
    St Louis
    harrisburg, PA
    Indianapolis
    Toledo, OH
    Minneapolis - St. Paul, MN
    Chesapeake - Virginia Beach, VA

    It's also one of those cities that qualifies as just a little bit of everything, which gets it lots of hits on quizzes like this. It's a city itself, but most people who can, would live in the suburbs around it; it's got a "shoreline" (I never get that excited about swimming in L.I. Sound, but there it is), at the same time you're only about half an hour from something that could be generously described as a "mountain" (we stretch the definition in CT) and only about two hours drive from Vermont; it's no more than an hour and forty five from either Boston or New York City, so if you want really big cities, you're close; for those who want kulcher and edukayshun, well, there are bunch of museums and Yale, with all the attendent stuff that goes with it. Me, I'd consider it for sure, but Danbury might be a little bit higher on the list, personally.

    I just meant the incredible disparity between the places in your top 5.

    The more I see of people's lists, the more alike they're starting to look so I'm starting to doubt the usefullness of this little tool.

    Well, I showed this to someone else, and he got lots of very small towns (pretty much every town listed had under 10,000 people), so maybe most of us have similar interests.

    It depends on whether or not you limit the size of the town, eliminate regions, etc.

    anyway, my spots:

    Little Rock, AR
    Sacramento, CA
    Honolulu, HI
    Las Vegas, NV
    Portland, OR
    Baltimore, MD
    Charleston, SC

    I don't think you "eliminate" regions. I'm pretty sure that it just gives precedence to towns in the regions you like.
