That's just obscene

According to an analysis of Google Trends data by Silicon Alley Insider, Albany is the 9th most obscene city in the US. Be sure to check out the explanation behind the rankings. (Thanks, Erik!)

I used the data from the spreadsheet and took a different approach. For each word, the top 10 cities were given a value between 1 and 10, where 10 went to the number one city and 1 went to the last city in the top 10. If there was a tie, then the city who searched more words "won"

This approach is based more on their Google ranking as opposed to how many of the dirty words they search for.

That was done for each search term, and then totaled for each city. The top 10 was slightly different (the number on the far right is the number of points each city got):

1 Louisville, KY, USA 42
2 Rochester, NY, USA 41
3 Philadelphia, PA, USA 29
4 Irvine, CA, USA 29
5 Newark, NJ, USA 25
6 Las Vegas, NV, USA 25
7 Pittsburgh, PA, USA 21
8 Albany, NY, USA 20
9 Portland, OR, USA 16
10 Richardson, TX, USA 16
11 Boston, MA, USA 13
12 Orlando, FL, USA 12
13 New York, NY, USA 12
14 Tampa, FL, USA 11
15 Los Angeles, CA, USA 10
16 Elmhurst, IL, USA 10
16 Meriden, CT, USA 10
17 Providence, RI, USA 9
18 Salt Lake City, UT, USA 6
19 St Louis, MO, USA 5
20 San Antonio, TX, 5
21 Norfolk, VA, USA 5
21 Oklahoma City, OK, USA 5
21 Sacramento, CA, USA 5
22 Chicago, IL, USA 3
23 Seattle, WA, USA 2

What the data doesn't show you is that all of the obscene Albany men shop at the Deli Warehouse. Seriously. SERIOUSLY. Their prices are amazing but I can't shop there without being sexually harassed. On the one hand, I enjoy my dignity. But on the other hand, $1.99 for a pound of turkey is pretty much unbeatable. Ghaaa, decisions decisions.

@Pantaloons, if I remember correctly Deli Warehouse moved to the old Sysco store on Fuller, right? Isn't it right next to one of the Cap District's largest porn rental stores? Maybe you're getting some spillover...

... I have been using OCD cleaners for at least three years now and I have never had a problem. They clean my house (in Albany) every two weeks and have also done an occasional cleaning for parents (in Schenectady). They show up when they say they will, the staff is friendly and courteous, prices are fair and increases have been reasonable. They are also great about working out changes in your scheduled cleaning if you give them notice. I couldn't be happier. ...
