Is it Arkansas? I heard that's the legit worst state, pretty much last place in everything.

Aside from the fact that it's wasps nests, I'll take those ones up top over these, any day. Those ones at least look vaguely architectural/like art. These? *shudder*

Mississippi by far and it's not even close. Louisiana is probably second worst. Alabama third.

Florida at least has Miami.

Arkansas is surprisingly incredibly beautiful. Same as Tennessee.

Ohio and Michigan look like the zombie apocalypse rolled through.

Yeah if Northern Florida was it's own state it would probably take the cake for worst state in the US. That's why I said, at least they have Miami (and from what I hear, Tampa) to save them slightly.

I also hear West Virginia is an absolute dump that rivals all the Deep South for being a black hole on Western Civilization.

Unless these properties are abandoned I can't believe they've let some of these nests get to the sizes they are. Jesus.

Everything from Palm Beach to Miami on the Atlantic coast is great. Tampa and area is really nice too. There are pockets of good stuff all around the state, but yes, it's surrounded by some of the worst of the worst. It's a weird dichotomy.


Orlando is awful, even with the theme parks.

Alabamath?

Ps, what is it that makes these places you guys are talking about such shot holes? I know West Virginia has some of the poorest people in NA supposedly, but something about the south I find appealing.

Orlando is awful, even with the theme parks.
Even New York State is like that to a degree. There are some hillbillyish places scattered around between Buffalo and the east coast.

Also, what is happening? Which one is the supernest? The guy shows one somewhat large nest, then they exclusively discuss how yellow jackets live underground while ambiguously showing a clip of a large nest hanging from the roof of a house (once, for 1 second).

Basically, itís wasp season.
