Last month, we shared a list of what Colorado and all fifty states are worst at according to a popular poster on Motifake.com. Shortly thereafter, another site, ThrillList.com, came up with its own version, and wouldn't you know it: All of the selections are different with the exception of just four states -- Minnesota, Texas, California and (you guessed it) Colorado. So suck it, other 46 states: We're only bad at one thing!

Check out the complete photo-illustrated roster below, featuring the worsts according to both sites. To see the complete ThrillList item, click here.
