I don't believe it rains there an avg of 5.3 hours on 155 days per year...  there's some kind of error in there somewhere....

 

Atlanta gets more rain that Seattle does.... now, I know it rains harder in ATL, while in SEA it mists a lot.... but still....

 

Here's where I found that:

This was about attempts...The other link was about actually "successful suicides", correct?

I don't think that's all that important in this, but yes.

Is "successful" the right way to say that?

So there are that many people in Seattle trying to kill themselves but not succeeding?

 

Amazon's definitely not hiring those failures.

Taking the data from both surveys, where Seattle was #2 in attempts from 2008-10, but behind Dallas and tied with Salt Lake City (both cities have more sunny days) and not even in the Top 10 of the other list (which appears to take data from the 90s-00s) and where several of the top places do get a lot of sunshine, the only logical deduction is that with this data there just doesn't appear to be any correlation between lack of sun and suicides.

 

Here's a WebMD article on Seasonal Affective Disorder (i.e. lack of sunlight in the winter). They mostly talk about Alaska and the Arctic region, where winter days are even shorter than in the PNW. Doesn't make any connection to suicide....doesn't even mention the word that I saw.

If recent reports are to be believed, Amazon could be contributing to a lot of those attempts.

Anyone ever been to Napa Valley?

 

Weather is amazing, close to SF, tons of wine...

 

I wouldn't need to live near the ocean in CA to be happy.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Just make sure to not laugh too much if you're on one of those wine trains.

Its pretty much the country though.  I liked it but having to drive everywhere gets old.  One of our training centers is there so I've been a lot.  I will say, the town where Bear Republic's brewpub looks like Utopia.

What did you go there to get trained about?

Inspired from the vacation thread...where would you choose to live if you could live anywhere?

Would you just want to be here? Would you stay in the US?

Have to be a major city or nearby suburb. With good weather. Seattle? SF LA or SD?

If you had to rank your reasons for living somewhere, what would be your top 5 reasons to want to live somewhere?  What would you value?

-Weather
-Needs to be a big city or in the nearby burbs
-Specifically — crime rate. I ain’t living in a “recovering” or “developing” neighborhood
-Affordability
