It’s true and if you can’t accept it, I can’t help you other than to offer you proof. Pittsburgh is chock full of “okay looking” people and has a larger ratio of ugly people than most cities. There’s no such thing you say? Please. Ask the PRA okay? The great majority of people that live in this city were born here. Way more people leave this city than come in. So years and years of Pittsburghers marrying Pittsburghers and giving birth to little Pittsburghers seems to have resulted in mostly below-average looking Pittsburghers.
I ride the bus (you’re welcome, commuteinfo.org). It picks me up and then circles the perimeter of the city (Grant, Forbes, Liberty, Busway). The bus is boring so I’ve come up with a game and I challenge ANY SINGLE PITTSBURGHER to try this and tell me I’m wrong. See all those people walking the sidewalks or waiting for the various busses? I want you to count how many truly beautiful people you see (as in, you’d do ’em). Put your homophobia aside and look at both sexes okay? I will say that for every time you play this game, you will find if you are lucky, one person of each sex EVERY OTHER DAY that you consider attractive. And I’m really reaching here because lots of times (and yes, I’ve lowered my standards) I can’t find a single attractive soul.
Look, it is the land of Myron Cope, Bill Hilgrove, the Steigerwalds, the Rooneys. Would YOU do those guys?
So the proof? You asked for it.
