Chris, you are not the only one on the same boat. I guess we have all felt that way at least once, and it took me quite a long time to come to the conclusion that the place where you live and the people surrounding you is the cause of that feeling. You need to find culture and take an Airborne against the barriers, you live in USA's angriest city after all.

Classic that Florida takes up 4 or 5 of the top 20 cities there... Orlando ain't too tough though (or at least around UCF). I'm actually from Delray Beach though, neighboring the bitchiest town in the nation, Boca Raton. So it's fitting that I moved from one to the other

I didn't catch your name btw, you are?

Those rankings are sometimes pretty messed up, I mean, how can they properly measure "angriness" in a city? That's like measuring the overall intelligence in a city just based on the number of the college graduates inhabiting it.

Haha of course, I dont take it that seriously.

It's just pretty funny to see Florida filling up the charts. Plenty of hardheaded and close-minded people though.

I don't think that's ever bothered me at all.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only U2 fan in the whole country. Which might be true.

Same here except for my best friend, who shares my fandom...nearly completely...and my family tolerate it slightly though I think my mom will rip out her hair in exasperation if she ever happens to see shirtless Bono again (Rattle & Hum...>.< sweaty eew)

But yeah...definitely no one at my school, for the most part; they all listen to Bieber and Lady Gaga or they're obsessed with the Beatles or something, which I'm not really. And all the U2 fans I find aren't really fans but people my parents' age who've heard them before. It's a little sad...

Haha listening to Gaga/obsessed with the Beatles isn't too bad. Everyone around here listens to garbage like Lil Wayne, Drake, Eminem, and that god awful music. And there's nobody in between.

They probably listen to that too; I haven't really enquired, not caring the slightest bit since it's bad all around. But there is some tolerable music among what my peers listen to...

Honestly it's not the fact that people aren't U2 fans that bothers me.

It's the hate for U2 or the looks I get when I bring it up/play their music/they see my poster/etc.

You're right; that's much worse. It's weird how so many people my age don't like the music I listen to...

I always wanted to chat with people about U2, who are of my own age (18) but they are scarce, All the kids my age are hopped up on dope and listen to Autotuned garbage and really do not know what good music is anymore. God forbid someone would use there own voice to make music. I just laugh when people say such and such A band is way better..

Awww. That's sad. Well...college, I guess? I'm hoping whoever I'm near in college will *not* have a horrendous taste in music, at least

Oh I do, a good friend of me is a fan, my parents who made me a fan ofcourse.... (but eh, they're not such a crazy fan as I am hahaha). I don't really talk about the band to my other friends anymore, but when I do, they don't mind. Some of them even know their names and stuff..

They know their names? That's good. My friends are like 'wait, who?' although I'm sure everyone has some idea who Bono is, though they could care less. My sister and brother had to be reminded who the various members were quite a bit but now they know; my sister now thinks of Larry as 'that guy in the music video with the mermaid'
