The makes of the snack food Combos recently financed a study which sought to quantify America’s most manly cities. The results are now in, and they are:

20. Detroit, MI

21. Jacksonville, FL

22. Phoenix, AZ

23. Birmingham, AL

So just how did this study go about trying to ascertain which cities are the most manly? Actually, the study appears to have conducted quite an in depth analysis based upon the following factors:

Sports
The number of local sports teams was analyzed along with the presence of other sporting events including NASCAR, monster truck events and triathlons and other races.

Men’s Lifestyle
Local memberships in organizations like motorcycle clubs, the availability of local hunting and fishing venues and the rate of local sports TV viewing were analyzed. Also looked at was the ratio between foreign and domestic car purchasing along with the percent of local vehicle sales which were pick-ups and other trucks.

Retail Stores
What type of retail shops populate the given city? Is there a large presence of sporting goods stores, gun shops and hardware stores? What types of restaurants are most popular? Vegetarian places or steakhouses?

Magazine Subscriptions
What are the most popular magazines among the city’s population. Are Maxim, Playboy, Sports Illustrated and Car & Driver high on the list?

Minivans
How many minivans are registered in the city? A large number serves to seriously hurt the manly quotient.

So where does your city rank on this list? If you’re driving your minivan to pick up your vegetarian sushi take-out and the latest issue of Home & Design is on your nightstand — that might be a clue that you’ve been influenced by unmanly surroundings.

    Here is something that you have probably never heard of. How does a $100 free trading account sound? With no strings attached? There is a company that is in the prelaunch stage for an unparalleled new predictive analysis technology to manage Forex accounts and they are using this viral method to spread the word. You just sign up for an account with a user name and password. You get $100 credited to your account. They professionally manage the account for you. The only string attached is that they want you to spread the word. They don’t ask for a credit card or any sensitive info. I tried it out myself and it is legit. Seems like a win-win situation. Here is the link if you want to check it out… http://prelaunchx.com/x/forextex
