An actual reason to read Playboy for the articles. 

The beginning of the rankings (worst) and the end (the best) are the most interesting parts.

I particularly like the idea of the "one hour daily travel budget": Your mode of transportation pretty accurately quantifies how far you live from your workplace. 
If you walk (3 miles/hr)  you live up to 1.5 miles away.
If you cycle(12 miles/hr) you live up to 6 miles away.
If you drive (30-60 miles/hr depending on traffic?) you probably live no more than 15 - 30 miles away.

In all cases about 1 hour a day is spent in transit. People who live closer to work will compensate by travelling more to go to  shopping or entertainment venues in order to hit the "daily one hour travel budget." Apparently one hour is the amount of time most people are comfortable spending on a daily basis getting from one place to another.

"What this means is that the growing fetus now has direct, unrestricted access to its mother's blood supply. It can manufacture hormones and use them to manipulate her. It can, for instance, increase her blood sugar, dilate her arteries, and inflate her blood pressure to provide itself with more nutrients."

Probably one of the most informative answers I've ever read on Quora.

Ever since I heard about this (The Input Hypothesis) I really liked it. I think it might actually get at the root of LEARNING in general: Learning occurs when the learner gets COMPREHENSIBLE input. In lectures and research talks the input often fails to meet the comprehensibility criteria.
