Default When you think about it, Chicago is the best city to live at.

no hurricanes, earthquakes, Volcanoes, not really any tornadoes since i've never experienced one in my life.

besides the fact that its 40F right now, there is no other place like home!

You forgot to mention the high crime rate.

High crime and toll bridges every 5 miles. Chicago is a very liberal city, if you're a conservative type Houston or Fort worth is better bet.

Easily...but there's too many libs, though. Who cares about the crime rate? Who goes to south/west Chicago? I've never been there in my life.

fukk that. snow is the worst and its consistent, not some random event like earthquake. shoveling snow and driving around in that crap, especially if you're not in school anymore where you don't get snow days off unless its real bad, snow has to be the worst thing to deal regularly deal with. cold weather is a huge downside too, that could even be numero uno worst thing to deal with. i f'n hate the cold, and then adding wind on top of that? Chicago could be the worst other than what i hear about the food there. the other thing is thats like a perfect formula to get fat.

I do not think so. I bet there are many places in the world where you can eat better. No offense.

Crime is an obvious problem in Chicago but what about corruption???. Must not be fun to run a business and having to deal with corrupt city officials. Although I've heard that Chicago is going through a reforming stage currently.

I would think Los Angeles is better but the LA brahs can step up and drop their 2 cents and correct me if I'm wrong.

It's cold and smoggy. You know what's nice... ****in Santa Fe, NM. The weather here is great, but I prefer the beach.

You'd think cuz it's 8000 feet in the air that it'd get really cold, but because of the sun and the desert climate, it works.
