According to Mens Health Magazine's stupid survey it is.

The rankings are based on these factors

-percentage of men with high blood pressure
-FBI rates of aggravated assaults.
-Number of workplace deaths from assaults and other violence
-traffic congestion data
-number of speeding citations issued

Bangor, ME took the #2 spot.

And since Men's Health Magazine said it's so, it has to be.

odd..

i would picture orlando to be number one, not the angriest. bangor maine was strange, too, because for one, it is a rather small city in comparison to a place like manch or orlando, and for two, it is a rather rough place, full of angry truckers etc. i wonder where portland falls, if anywhere?

Orlando is very angry, look at their traffic for instance (way more truckers than Bangor too). It is not the easiest place to live either...

You should travel more, and I say that in a good way.

yeah, no offense taken. I was in orland for the first time last march and it seemed very easy going. i would imagine that its not-so-dense layout would lead people to be rather relaxed, unlike a place like NYC or boston, where i would imagine overcrowding and lack of elbow room to make people angrier.

and perhaps orlando has more truckers than bangor in absolute terms, but per capita, i would say bangor is the trucking capitol of the east coast...that place is so gross.
