Have You Seen This? What every state is best and worst at

THE FIFTY NIFTY UNITED STATES — I think we all like to believe our home state is the best state.

We talk up the scenery, the recreation options and how great the weather is in an attempt to convince all our extended families to move closer and to prevent our closest friends from moving away. And sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

The truth is, we're all a little right. Whether you grew up here in Utah or in Delaware or North Dakota or Arkansas, your home state is the best. At something. Whether that something is actually appealing or not… well, you'll just have to watch this video and decide for yourself.

The video explains one thing that every state is the best at and one thing each state is the worst at, and it's pretty interesting. If you're feeling a little down on your hometown, maybe let this help you find the state that you'll want to really brag about.

For example, do you want to live in the state with the highest average annual salary? Move to Alaska. Do you hate walking to work and want to live in a place where everyone else does too? Move to Alabama. Want to avoid the most boring state? Don't go to Delaware!

Yesterday's Have You Seen This?

Because I know most of you will just want to know what this video says Utah is the best and worst at, I'll tell you. Spoiler, but also no surprise, Utah is the best at attending church. According to the video, 53 percent of the state goes to church weekly, which is the highest number of all the states. Unrelatedly, Utah's "worst" fact is that we have the highest rate of skin cancer diagnoses.

So basically, if you get anything out of this video, let it be a reminder to wear sunscreen more. Beyond that, maybe it will give you a new reason to brag about your favorite state, or just a new reason to not listen to your BFF who says you should move across the country.
