S.F. is proud to be naughty
Just in time for Christmas, a new study revealed San Francisco is the ninth most sinful city in the nation, with some 48 percent confessing to committing one of the seven deadly sins -- lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, pride, greed, sloth -- at least five times a week.

And just guess what we're most guilty of? Pride.

According to the study, 31 percent of San Franciscans admitted to exercising way too much pride in their daily lives. "San Francisco is both beautiful and unique," says Brandon Wade, CEO and Founder of "Each person values their diversity, so it's logical that they are prideful."

We're also pretty damn superior when it comes to baseball, beauty, and burritos.

The study, conducted by, a dating website, surveyed 450,000 users worldwide, analyzing which cities were most guilty of the exercising the seven deadly sins. Cities with the most people who committed one of the cardinal sins more than three times every week -- Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York included -- have been deemed "naughty."

Not surprisingly, Americans in general were most guilty of pride, the study says. Also not surprising:

  • 72 percent of the intolerant folks of Birmingham, Ala., committed one of the deadly sins four times a week, and "lust" is their poison.

  • Houston, Texas, is most guilty of wrath (have you felt that humidity?)

  • Our friends down south in Los Angeles admitted to exercising envy more often than any other cardinal sin. That should explain all the liposuction.

  • And finally, our nation's capital is chock-full of greedy humans.

Now for the top 10 "nicest" cities. Yes, you will be shocked:
