You've seen these kinds of rankings before, usually it's based on some subjective category like the best place to eat a steak or the city with the friendliest people.

There is a thing you can’t understand unless you, too, are wearing a giant belt buckle shaped like a Colt revolver, sipping a Dr Pepper in Waco, or playing drug wars on your damn Texas Instruments calculator.
