Intrigued. Based on answering some questions, it purports to give you a list of the best places for you to live-- sort of like a dating site (and we all know how well those work out). I just find it interesting. Of course, they don't ask the questions that really matter, like the likelihood of high-paying jobs in the motion picture industry, the availability of clean and friendly hookers or emotionally stable strippers, or the ability to build a large warehouse-type studio space.

The website is primarily about offering you a bunch of services and likely spam from hell if you're not careful, so if you proceed, proceed with caution.
