There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just say it. Kirksville has been declared one of the best cities in Missouri if you want to...(*ahem*) "get lucky".

One of my favorite snarky websites is Roadsnacks. They recently ranked all the cities in Missouri for their residents ability to "get lucky" and Kirksville came in at an admirable #2. NOTE: they didn't call it "getting lucky", but I'm not gonna use their exact phrase because I don't like jail. Their methodology is simple. In their own words:

The purpose of this post is to use science and data to determine which places are the easiest you could possibly go in Missouri if you wanted to hook up with someone.

They added an interesting disclaimer:

To summarize, it's bars, colleges and population. Basically. With all that "science", Kirksville comes in at #2. Looking at you, Truman State University. Back in my day, it was Northeast Missouri State University. I didn't attend because I decided not to pursue higher education and instead went on to say ridiculous things on the radio for the last 4 decades. But, I did have plenty of friends who attended classes in Kirksville and had plenty of stories to tell.

For reference, Warrensburg (another college town) came in at #4. What about #1? Roadsnacks named Maryville as the #1 place to "find love/lust" in Missouri. Congrats.

Roadsnacks articles are normally very entertaining. You can check out their full ranking/rundown for other "lucky" cities in Missouri.
