The Weakerthans have a song called "One Great City!" and the only line I remember from the song, which is repeated a few times:


Now, I've never been to Winnipeg, but I think we all have a few cities we just hate. Usually there is a reason, whether that reason be logical or not. I used to hate the entire state of Oregon--nothing seemed to go well in Oregon. The speed limit is lower in Oregon than in California or Washington, making road trips through Oregon the pits. The traffic in Portland during rush hour takes hours to get through. Also, the road trip I took in high school down to California we got pulled over in Oregon, which increased my hatred of the state as a whole.

I've grown up since then, and lived in Portland for a year and loved it. I avoided rush hour traffic not having a vehicle, and my view of Oregon isn't so bad anymore.

I don't hate anywhere, but I don't think I'll be going back to Laredo, TX any time soon.

Here is the challenge:

On December 1st, 2008, whoever has the largest % increase in their BR on FT wins (I suppose the smallest % decrease would also count). Let's say, the loser transfers $10 to the winner's FT account. We can do screen-cap before and after pics.

Feel free to suggest something different/better.
