Social justice, arts and politics, life in New York City

Think it’s strange here? Try Lincoln, Nebraska

Or New York City (ranked #1). Or Boston (#7).

It’s the list of strangest cities–and states–as ranked by Tableseed.com. The results come from analysis of 2,000 “strange news” reports from the Associated Press (itself a much-ballyhooed object after warning of layoffs in the near future).

Highlights of the 169 odd news stories from Florida, named the top strangest state:

  • “Florida lotto winner seeks to open a nude dude ranch” — Brooksville, FL
  • “Man wearing sleeping bag as cape attempts robbery” – Gainesville, FL
  • “Man allegedly flings jellyfish at teens at beach” – Madeira Beach, FL

Florida may be tops in stange states, but New York City topped the list of strange cities (no surprise) followed by Lincoln, Nebraska. I grew up in the midwest, and thought Lincoln was pretty normal but I must have failed to see its strange subculture.
