    How is the whole country not covered in sloth? Also, I live right in the middle of a big splotch of envy and greed.

    How could they possibly get accurate data for this. Really check out their link for how they measured and arrived at the data.

    The reason this was a bad study was the criteria for which they gathered the data.
    From the link its basically-

    Greed= avg. income vs. people bellow poverty
    Envy= # of thefts
    wrath = violent crimes
    Lust= std`s (where as if it were porn consumption, Utah would be bright red)
    Gluttony= fast food restaurants (Instead of the weight of the people WTF?)
    Sloth= money spent of entertainment vs. rate of employment
    pride= all the sins

    see the full article (talking just about the nevada map) here.

    I`m not sure if anyone can objectively quantify the seven deadly sins in this manner. Especially if they`re using the metric cited by DeutschDude9.

    For gluttony and sloth the south should be solid red. Texas is the most obese state in the country. At least it was at one time, it could be Arkansas or Mississippi now.

    Hahaha, yes! The south is full of sinners and the north is full of saints. That`s hilarious. Can we get a map of blue collar crime? I wonder where the basterds are that ripped off my 401k. Probably in the deep south. lol that`s way too funny

    how fun that the county I grew up in was never in the red, ever. The county I currently live in was in the red for sloth, which I totally agree with. What`s up with western Montana being in the red for Wrath and Western South Dakota in the red for Lust?!

    I dunno uncleduck, I think a lot of Detroit crimes are of opportunity, not passion. We should have been up there for gluttony, though.
