    Mag Says People Are Ticked Off in Dallas
    Men's Health Magazine has listed Dallas as one of the angriest places to live in America.

    Dallas ranks as the seventh angriest city in the country according to Men's Health Magazine.

    Why so angry? Is a losing football team to blame? Or is traffic the culprit? It can't be. Traffic isn't that bad compared to Los Angeles (ranked 15th), which didn't make the Top 10. C'mon brah! 

    The criterion used for the magazine survey is as follows: "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)."

    Here's the list  -- for some reason No. 100 is the most angry and No. 1 is the least angry (don't ask us we didn't make the list):

    100. Detroit, MI
    99. Baltimore, MD
    98. St. Petersburg, FL
    97. Las Vegas, NV
    96. Newark, NJ
    95. Charleston, WV
    94. Dallas, TX
    93. Houston, TX
    92. Philadelphia, PA
    91. Miami, FL

    Here's the list of 10 least angry cities in America:

    10. Anchorage, AK
    9. Reno, NV
    8. Wichita, KS
    7. Cheyenne, WY
    6. Salt Lake City, UT
    5. Madison, WI
    4. Colorado Springs, CO
    3. Fargo, ND
    2. Lincoln, NE
    1. Burlington, VT
