This post isn't directly related to medicine, but it is related to medical students applying for residency programs across the country next year (namely, me). Forbes recently put out a list of America's Most Stressful Cities. You can flip through Forbes' slideshow, or simply check out the list below, courtesy the Consumerist:

America's Most Stressful Cities:

10. Philadelphia, PA

9. Providence, R.I.

8. Salt Lake City, Utah

7. Cleveland, Ohio

6. San Diego, Calif.

5. San Francisco, Calif.

4. Los Angeles, Calif.

3. Detroit, Mich.

2. New York, N.Y.

1. Chicago, Ill.

Why Chicago?
Chicago has a 7.3% unemployment rate, the eighth most polluted air in our ranking and in city where everybody drives to get around, a gallon of gas costs a nickel under $4 dollars.
Hmm... something to consider as we traipse across the country in search of employment.
