    Looking for attractive people? Don't go to Philly

    Looking for attractive people? Don't go to Philly

    Reuters




    Philadelphia is home to the least attractive people in the United States, a survey of visitors and residents showed on Friday.
    The city of more than 1.5 million people was also found to be among the least stylish, least active, least friendly and least worldly, according to the "America's Favorite Cities" survey by Travel & Leisure magazine and CNN Headline News.


    About 60,000 people responded to the online survey -- at www.travelandleisure.com -- which ranked 25 cities in categories including shopping, food, culture, and cityscape, said Amy Farley, senior editor at the magazine.


    For unattractiveness, Philadelphia just beat out Washington DC and Dallas/Fort Worth for the bottom spot. Miami and San Diego are home to the most attractive people, the poll found.
    But Farley pointed out the results don't mean people in Philadelphia are ugly or the city is a bad place to visit.
    "We were asking people to vote on attractiveness, not unattractiveness. Travel & Leisure editors believe there are a lot of attractive people in Philadelphia," she said.
    "The relative attractiveness of its residents is only a minuscule factor in evaluating a city's merit."


    Philadelphians' self-esteem has been undermined by national surveys showing they are among the fattest people in the United States. The American Obesity Association ranked the city in the top 10 for overweight people every year between 2000 and 2005.
    And sporting pride in a city known for the fierce loyalty of its fans has been hurt by not having had a national champion in any of its four main sports since the 76ers won the National Basketball Association title in 1983.

    That's right, ugly. But then we could never hang out, as I wouldn't be allowed in uglyville to visit you

    I was in San Diego last April and I didn't see any women that were that much better looking that anything I've seen in Minneapolis or Chicago.

    i grew up in philly and take offense to this horse shit...E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!
    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.


    the posts and opinions stated by me do not in any way reflect the values, beliefs, or views of my department. they are simply opinions and/or observations which have been developed through my personal experiences. hell, most of the stories probably arent even true...wink wink

    Toledo could give Philly a serious run for their money...when I lived there, you couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting a douchebag with a permed mullet and an 8-ball leather jacket...and that was 2004.

    Also, this survey is all f-ed up if they rank Dallas near the bottom. I challenge you to go to a Mavericks game without wanting to whack it right there to the sweet tail that adorns the courtside seats. Chicks in Dallas are hot, and there are plenty of "beautiful men" wearing their stripped shirts, tight pants and Drakkar in Addison.
