A City-Data.com thread kicks off with this simple question: "Why are Front Range drivers so terrible?" And while some of the many folks who responded disagree with this theory, suggesting that drivers in these parts aren't really any worse than those in any burgeoning metropolitan area, most float theories as to why getting from point A to point B can be a painful proposition.

Below, see what struck us as the ten strongest arguments.

Last month, we featured the top ten back-to-school posts on the CU Boulder Confessions Facebook page. Turns out, though, that University of Denver students have some confessions of their own. The DU Confession Facebook page features the sort of candor that only comes with anonymity -- and for those of you who look order, each post is numbered. With that in mind, we count down our photo-illustrated favorites from #447 to #413. Check them out below.

Once upon a time, TV anchors would reject any attempt to portray them as sexy, seeing such a designation as undermining the seriousness of their profession. But it's the 21st century, bitches, and 7News is actively campaigning on behalf of its staffers to triumph in a People search to find the sexiest local TV anchor alive. (Yes, the magazine has limited the contest to dudes, in an echo of its annual "Sexiest Man Alive" staple.) But who should really represent Denver? We rank eighteen anchors from all five local news stations on their sexiness quotient. Check out our picks below, from least to most sexy -- and for the full rules about how to participate in the People survey, which runs through October 22, click here.

There are no shortage of reasons to move to Denver, as posts like this one demonstrate. But for the most part, the suggestions floated by HotPads.com are at least a little bit unusual, blending many of the Mile High City's cultural and economic qualities with the beautiful location in which it's set. See what we mean by counting down HotPads' Denver top nine, featuring photos and excerpts from site text. To see the original item, click here.

Photos: Ten Stupidest Reasons Why Yobeat Thinks Colorado Sucks

A cropped version of the main image on Yobeat's list. More photos below.
Yobeat is a Portland, Oregon-based website known for a devotion to snowboarding and a dislike of doing it in Colorado (except for the southern part) that's spelled out in the recent post "30-Something Reasons Colorado Sucks."

Admittedly, some of Yobeat's picks are solid: I-70 traffic is terrible and we thought the joke about Texans being even worse when they're oxygen-deprived was pretty funny. But others struck us as somewhere between forced and moronic. Continue to count down ten photo-illustrated examples juxtaposing Yobeat's takes with ours -- and to read the original item, click here.

How do you define the Denver Broncos? Urban Dictionary is of two minds about the team, which returns from a bye week to face the Arizona Cardinals this weekend: Roughly half the definitions are nice, while an equal number of others are nasty -- and some represent a blend of the two, occasionally via references that are hilariously dated. See what we mean by checking out our meme-illustrated countdown of the nice and the nasty.

Photos: 20 Colorado High School Confess Tweets Guaranteed to Freak Out Parents

Our recent post spotlighting CU Boulder Confessions is practically PG compared to the items we found on Colorado HS Confess, a Twitter feed on which sex, drugs and questionable behavior definitely don't have an age limit.

Below, find twenty tweets sure to freak out parents of students attending Colorado high schools, many of which are specifically named in the messages. We don't vouch for the accuracy of the posts, which could be entirely fictional as far as we know. In fact, it's probably a good idea for parents to assume they are. They'll sleep sounder that way.

Last year, we showcased demolished Colorado urban explorer sites as featured on the website uer.ca. But that post barely scratched the surface of photos and information about dearly departed local landmarks captured just ahead of the wrecking ball. We've assembled pics and uer.ca text from five more places: a graffiti-tastic water tank in Morrison, Englewood's Cinderella Twin Drive-In, Loveland's Cloverleaf Kennel Club, a Brighton location known as "The Orphanage," and the old Crossroads Mall in Boulder. Check them out below.
