    The worst place where you have lived?

    Houston, Texas is my response for quite a number of reasons.

    Re: The worst place where you have lived?

    I haven't lived many places and I don't hate any of them.

    I have, however, traveled extensively for work over the years. I hate, hate, hate Pittsuburgh and basically the entire state of PA. In Iowa, I dislike western Iowa a lot---sorry to all of you that live there!

    Ok, if we're going with places that we've traveled to, I'll throw in Newark, NJ and Winnipeg, MB.

    Re: The worst place where you have lived?

    1) 208 Stanton Avenue. Its no longer there, but the place was a dump and it smelled like an Oriental Kitchen...but hey it was cheap....
    2) Wilson Hall - the guy to girl ratio was horrendus.
    3) In the hood in Cedar Rapids in the 80's. Fighting was a way of life. Theft was common, plus the City Smelled bad except on Captain Crunch days, I love Captain Crunch.

    Best place- where I live - West Des Moines, safe, comfortable, good schools for the kids

    FYI -- A chemical engineer once told me that there was no such thing as Captain Crunch day in Cedar Rapids. The smell had some completely other cause.

    That's a disturbing thought.

    Re: The worst place where you have lived?

    I LOVE Houston! (but can understand it's not for everyone)

    I would say the worst I've ever lived in was Nacogdoches, TX

    Re: The worst place where you have lived?

    I'd say Iowa City, Iowa.

    Ok haven't lived there but I've been through there... looks like a pretty ****** town...



    No but seriously over by the mall where my brothers live is terrible, especially in the winter. Narrow streets on hills that get covered in snow and ice... terrible. Population on a whole are a bunch of *** holes and idiots too...

    that person is probably working on EPA issues for Qauker Oates on that Captain Crunch Like Smell...Hey - I don't claim to know what all 5 smells were, but there was definitely cereal smells on certain days and they smelled better than Penford type smells.

    Ames...horrible weather, bad restaurants, no shopping, no night life for people out of college, etc... Ames is good for people with kids and has great schools.

    CR is awful too.

    Little Rock, AR is awful. God took a big **** on the city/state.
