Foursquare Declares El Paso, Texas, the Rudest City in the U.S.

New, 5 comments

Break out the geek glasses! By simply running the query above, the brainiacs over at Foursquare have churned out a list of the top 20 rudest cities in the world based on how many curse words people have used in different locations. (We suspect that "running queries" is an average Tuesday afternoon for the guys at Foursquare.) Such an equation does not produce perfect results about impolite citizenry—"please keep in mind that this only evaluates the rudeness of English speaking countries"—but still. It's only a matter of time until this data contributes to a city's livability status.
