Online top-10 lists are almost always eyeball-baiting shitshows, not worthy of our attention. But we need to say a few things about a recent Kiplinger piece that’s currently boggling our mind. It’s a list of the top-10 places for people under 35 to live in America–a list that doesn’t include LA, but somehow puts Lansing, Michigan right next to New York City.
Here’s why all you youngsters out there should apparently jump ship to Lansing:
Cheap rent well below the national average, a respectable bar and club scene, high-paying job opportunities in bio and Internet technologies. Average commute is only 20 minutes.
Let’s see…cheap rent, short commutes, depressing post-industrial wasteland…or perennially warm weather and the chance to have coke-fueled sex with a hipster model or two in the bathroom of the Edendale Grill…Hmmm…Tough call.
