Movoto's methodology is based on the Christian notion of the "seven deadly sins," with each one translated into a criterion "that makes sense for modern city living." Here they are:

-- Strip clubs per capita (Lust)
-- Cosmetic surgeons per capita (Pride)
-- Violent crime per year per 1,000 residents (Wrath)
-- Theft per year per 1,000 residents (Envy)
-- Percentage of disposable income given to charity each year (Greed)
-- Percentage of obese residents (Gluttony)
-- Percentage of physically inactive residents (Sloth)

Here's how the list of the top 10 sinful cities shook out:
1. St. Louis, MO
2. Orlando, FL
3. Minneapolis, MN
4. Pittsburgh, PA
5. Milwaukee, WI
6. Cincinnati, OH
7. Miami, FL
8. Buffalo, NY
9. Detroit, MI
10. Las Vegas, NV
Curiously, Movoto reports that Minneapolis ranks as the second most-sinful city in the "Sloth" category, as 30 percent of Minneapolis residents "aren't meeting government physical activity guidelines" according to CDC data. Only Tulsa, at 32.4 percent, has a higher percentage of residents not meeting that standard.

Of course, just last month, the American Fitness Index concluded that the Twin Cities is the healthiest metro in the country for the third year running. So it appears we're both naughty and nice, depending on what data set you're looking at.

NEVER venture into Muderapolis.

People there are pretty much from Chicago and other points east. They are in Muderapolis to reap the rewards of Minnesota's liberal free Government handouts. In spite of the free lifestyle they STILL insist on living a violent life.

Classic "bite the hand that feeds you".

STAY OUT!

It could be worse - you could live in an decaying inner tier suburb like North St. Paul.

Lol are you kidding me? Murderapolis? Are we still using 90s nick names?! Not everyone in mpls are from Chicago. Last time I checked people in the suburbs also receive government hand outs. Again, not everyone in mpls prefer violent lifestyles. You might want to do your research over again. Bad people reside everywhere. Do not limit yourself to stupidity. Have a great day!

The really funny part is that the Schmahlbagger lives off his government check.

obesity has more than ONE cause. folks who are being a facestuffer is not the only reason for it. lets see what are the possible reasons. it may be one. it may be more than one. it all depends on the person who is obese on what made them that way.
.
this site mentions several, but not all the reasons why someone might be obese.
http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/health-topics...
.....An Inactive Lifestyle Other reasons for not being active include: relying on cars instead of walking, fewer physical demands at work or at home because of modern technology and conveniences, and lack of physical education classes in schools.
.....Environment Our environment doesn't support healthy lifestyle habits; in fact, it encourages obesity.
.....Genes and Family History Studies of identical twins who have been raised apart show that genes have a strong influence on a person's weight. Overweight and obesity tend to run in families.
.....Health Conditions Some hormone problems may cause overweight and obesity, such as underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), Cushing's syndrome, and polycystic ovarian syndrome
.....Medicines Certain medicines may cause you to gain weight. These medicines include some corticosteroids, antidepressants, and seizure medicines.
.....Emotional Factors
.....Smoking
.....Age
.....Pregnancy
.....Lack of Sleep

A relative made the mistake of venturing into Murderapolis, he was mugged for his Iphone. When he came to he was on a sidewalk. He was lucky it wasn't a different outcome, many people die when hitting their head on pavement.

Call it what you want, I call it Murderapolis.
