Last night’s local news reported Tallahassee is ranked #3 in America’s Top-100 Sweatiest Cities, a ranking done by Old Spice. A deodorant company ranking sweaty cities? Imagine that!

It’s warm here, but I didn’t think it was really that much warmer or any more humid than north Alabama. Oh, wait! Huntsville is #11 and Birmingham is #13. Isn’t that what I just said?

The Sweatiest Cities rankings are based on computer simulations of the amount of sweat a person of average height and weight would produce walking around for an hour in the average temperatures during June, July and August of 2007.

At least it was a computer simulation. Imagine having the job of measuring all that actual sweat? Ew!

Here are the top 25 cities:

1. Phoenix, AZ (but it’s a dry heat, right?)
2. Las Vegas, NV
3. Tallahassee, FL
4. Tucson, AZ
5. Memphis, TN
6. Miami, FL

8. Tampa, FL
