Houston: One Pissed-Off City

Ooooh, this makes us so mad.

Men's Health has looked at various factors to determine the Angriest Places in America and you know what? Dallas beats us.

Sure, we came in as the eighth-angriest city in the U.S., but still....godfuckingdammit and all.

Other Texas cities that make the list include Lubbock in 52nd place. Do people get pissed off about things in Lubbock? Maybe just the fact they're stuck in Lubbock is aggravating enough.

The methodology:

We calculated the number of aggravated assaults per capita (FBI), the number of people with high blood pressure (CDC), the amount of time spent in traffic during rush hour (Texas Transportation Institute), and the number of anger-management specialists per capita (American Psychological Association).

The angriest city of all: Detroit. Which makes sense, given that statue of a clenched fist in the Eminem commercial.
