Do You Hate the Same Thing Every Other Illinoisan Hates?
Have you ever seen that meme on social media that says, "if you don't have anything nice to say, come sit by me?" Well, technically it's practically a quote taken right out of Steel Magnolias; but I'm sure you've seen it.
We love hating on people, places and things and for some of us, it's what brought us to the people we love most. Who doesn't love bonding over a mutual hate of going to the gym and singing karaoke?
A dating app was even created to match people based on a particular common interest- hate. That app is Hater and according to Medium.com, after looking at data from hundreds of their users, they were able to put together this map that shows the most hated topic in every state.
The results are a mixture of hilarious, obvious and in Illinois' case, downright confusing.
How did politicians not make the cut for us? Biting string cheese? Look, I don't like biting string cheese either, but I've never been able to make a love connection over it.
However, it does look like I'd definitely be able to find love, if I ever need to find it again, in Minnesota, Alabama, Arkansas, and Georgia. Not a big fan of any of those things.
