I get it. A Little Rock 10 is a New York 6. You've got so many people there that the competition for anything is fierce and the best of anything is going to be the best-of-the-best. New York is arguably the greatest city in the world and residents should be proud of what they have. But they don't need to be insuffrably proud and tell the rest of us how much better they are than us. Though I find people from San Francisco and Austin to be worse than New Yorkers in that regard.
True, New Yorkers are insufferable.
But in fairness, people are insufferable. Hell isn't just other people, it's other people telling you about why their hometown is all cool and stuff, and then saying, "Hot enuff for ya?"
