Which is not to be taken seriously. It's only misinformation spread by conservative fear mongering blogs to make Illinois look bad when it actually is one of the best states to raise a family.

And as we all know, our lord and savior Wallethub is never wrong.  Iowa and Minnesota are indeed superior to Illinois in every way.

But IL is superior to it's biggest Midwest rivals (Wisconsin and Michigan). In addition to that, it's also superior to FL,TN,NC and wherever else the yts have been moving to.

Sarcasm against Crash_It aside Iíve found the lack of acronym awareness to be a major issue in what I do.  In particular this week Iíve been attending a NAVOSH course so Iíve been getting bombarded with a bunch of military acronyms Iíve never seen before.  Fortunately the training guides come with glossary pages.  Iíve found that military acronyms arenít the easiest to search for online sometimes. 

I recently transitioned from being in hospitality to working in tech. Most meetings, I just let 90% of the acronyms fly over my head.

For the record, yts is "whites".

If Urban Dictionary is to be believed, and given the context of usage, looks like it's referring to white people. And potentially in a racially negative manner.
