Rank your own livable cities, H-town vs. Dallas, randy Rice, and more

Some smaller items this week followed by some amusing rankings analysis:
Those with delicate sensibilities should stop reading the post here.  I'm serious.  Stop reading.  You know who you are.  Don't say you weren't warned...

And concluding with a little amusing news, Newsweek ranked Rice #3 in the nation for both Happiest (nightlife, dining, housing, weather, indebtedness) and Horniest students.  Do those things seem mutually incompatible to anyone else?  Turns out the problem is their definition for the horniest schools: "Schools with high marks for student looks and low marks for campus strictness."  Assuming horny = frustrated, kind of the opposite of horniest, right?  "Horniest" would mean hot students and *high* campus strictness (see "Animal House").  Sounds like they really meant "randy", "hornless" (?) or "sexually satisfied" - which certainly seems like it would boost the Happiness ranking too ;-)  And, yes, upon taking a second look, 4 of the 5 schools overlap on those two Top 5 lists.  Wesleyan is horny without being happy, and Harvard is happy without being horny.  I'll let you draw your own conclusions about what that means for their campus cultures...
