Once again, Philly comes up short. But this time it's a good thing. Milwaukee is No. 1 for drunks, according to Forbes.com. Philadelphia's only tied for ninth.
Makes you wonder: Where else do we rank? Here's what other sites say.
Sports: We're No. 9! (Chicago is No. 1. We were 2 last year.)
Best cities for singles: We're No. 12! (Denver-Boulder is No. 1.)
Anger: We're No. 27! (Orlando, Fla., is No. 1. "Get out of my way, Duck!")
Risk of identity theft: We're No. 30! (San Francisco is No. 1.)
Fewest births to teens: We're No. 42! (Seattle is No. 1.)
Brainpower: We're No. 50! (Seattle is No. 1.)
Least amount of impotence: We're No. 65! (San Fran is No. 1.)
As for where we don't rank, according to Men's Health Magazine, we're not Top 5 for single women (Washington, D.C., is No. 1), low-blood pressure (Toledo, Ohio), muscle men (San Jose), excercising (Sacramento), slimness (Orlando), heart health (Minneapolis), wired hospitals (New York), cancer-free colons (Madison, Wisc.), cancer-free lungs (Salt Lake City), or cancer-free prostates (Honolulu). But neither were we worst in any category.
So where are we Top 5? Well, we're still No. 5 in population. For now. Phoenix should overtake us soon.
Wait, here's a list where we are No. 1! Most depressed! Way to cheer us up.
