Americans Say These US Cities Have The Weirdest People

http://mobile.businessinsider.com/strangest-us-cities-2013-9?op=1


Portland came in as #2. Nashville just squeaked in as # 10.

The illustration accompanying Nashville was of I Dream of Weenie. I had dinner Monday night at the home of Leslie Allen, owner of I Dream of Weenie, a hot-dog type restaurant contained in a VW bus. (She is part of our recycling group.) I don't think it is weird--it is cute and clever. There is a boom in restaurants inside food trucks in Nashville. I think the trend started in San Francisco. And the food is good--not the crap you'd get from a food truck 30 years ago.

I'm glad Seattle is on that list. Otherwise I'd have people accusing me of being normal. :notvegan:


Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I haven't visited any of the places on the list (apparently the places I've lived in and visited aren't weird enough haha), but I'd certainly like to visit all of them (especially San Francisco and New York). Most of the cities on the list are large cities, so naturally that explains some of the diversity. Metropolitan areas are more likely to attract different sorts of people, perspectives, and customs, in addition to giving rise to new ideas.

So glad to see a place so close to home got number 1. I grew up an hour from there and was there almost daily (my mom worked there) I cannot wait to move back. ...oddly enough they called me weird there too... I'm proud of it, though! tongue3.gif

If you live in a weird town, and they call you weird, does that mean you're normal??!!:eek::worried:

Haha I think it means I wasn't hanging out with the people they mention in that artical. Compared to voodoo, vamperism and drag queens I'm not so out there but if you ask my family from there or the people I grew up with they would lol at the idea of me being "normal". It's a great city. You can be as "weird" as you want to be and still fit in somewhere. Just not when I was a kid. Not many kids wandering Bourbon street or the French Quarter without their gaurdians around. Makes it kind of a wonderland as a child. I suppose like going to Vegas, New York or Tokyo for the first time.(before you settle in, that first glance not perticipating just taking it in) So much going on it is a high to the senses.

What's the difference between yogurt and San Francisco?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

yogurt has live, active, thriving cultures.

 

 

 

 

my ancestral home is number one, but i think it is not a weird place, but a place that refuses to ignore the extremely thin veil between humanity and the bestial. new orleans lets man be an animal. sex, drugs, speaking in tongues. hard living, but it's genuine.

Sounds like my kind of place.  :shifty: (...and I like NOLA cuisine)
