    Where does your city rank? Most hours spent in traffic....

    Which U.S. cities were the worst? Led by Los Angeles, the ten most congested American cities, and the number of hours spent in traffic, were as follows:

    Los Angeles 102
    New York City 91
    San Francisco 79
    Atlanta 70
    Miami 64
    Washington, D.C. 63
    Boston 60
    Chicago 57
    Seattle 55
    Dallas 54

    Here is the full list. I didn't make the top 10 but my city ranked #14, which is still high! That's out of 1360 cities!!

    I'm at like 120 on the list I think
    Traffic is getting worse as well especially when I'm headed to the mountains

    Boston is a horrible city for traffic. I was in Boston a few times last year and 2017
    The city is awesome but the traffic is some of the worst i have ever seen. Makes sense public transportation is so big on the east coast and everyone who can uses it. Makes no sense to sit in traffic so long and waiting for what felt like minutes just to cover a city block

    Chicago was nice and traffic isnt too bad from what I remember but downtown was horrible

    Ohio is legit...

    My city is not ranked but drove home from work yesterday, 19miles, took 1h 52min and that was on a Scooter driving between traffic as much as humanly possible.

    It's a complete shithole but not something I think of or actually ever talk about because I can not live my life in such a negative way and at the end of the day I have chosen to move here.

    Orlando - 22nd in the US. Only the toll roads keep it from being worse. Everything else works against it. Mass quantities of global tourists? Check. Roads and signage that looks like something designed by Mickey and constructed by Goofy? Check. Left hand exit lanes in addition to right exits? Check. Pretzel shaped exit ramps where just a nice, easy 90 degree curve would do? Check.

    Well I haven’t cycled before. The wife won’t let me. So I am looking into TRT so she can’t say anything if it’s prescribed! Lol

    I’m in Toronto and it’s brutal here I heard that it is now the worst in North America for traffic. I often spend 3 hours a day in my car usually at least 2.5.

    But how long does it take you to de-ice , shovel snow, and thaw your vehicle out before you drive those 12.5 miles?

    So far my highest ever was 57 for hematrocit (extra thick) and 19.5-20 for hemoglobin (i remember this specifically because they told me if my hemaglobin would be at 21 they wouldn't let me donate at all)
    Right now I hover between 52-54 on average
    Donating brings me down to only about 48 and within a few weeks I think I'm back up to where I was before, also I have crashed my iron/ferritn levels once before (frequent donations and they called me a few months back saying you're denied to donate for another month)
    Right now i'm at about 52-54 with 18 hemoglobin, I'm used to it at this point

    Ok. I see
    I just had mine, my hematocrit was 51.5, hemo was 17.7 and rbc was 5.84. I can understand this because my test was something >3,000. I don't know exactly how high, they only went up to 3,000.
    The thing that concerned me was my wbc was 14.9. I'm not sure if I was fighting off a cold or what. I did have a very small infection, nothing serious. That could have possibly been it but I don't know. I'm gonna have to get it checked again. One other thing is my CNS was very taxed and I was severely stressed out and I read where severe stress can cause it. I'm just not sure.

    Severe stress actually causes just about every issue imaginable imo. Stress at high levels will ruin our health mentally and physically
