The reality of life is that not everyone is going to get along. Some personalities just clash, sometimes effective communication isn’t possible. Other times we let our preconceived notions of someone get in the way of really giving a chance. In most of these cases, there’s a reason why the relationship is never going to work. And other times it just is – like Montagues and Capulets will never get along. Well, one extremely unscientific map highlights the irrational nature of beef with an illustration of what states hate other states, sometimes for zero reasons at all.

Matt Shirley, who runs the Instagram account @matsurelee, asked people to weigh in and vote on which state their home state is their least favorite over a year ago — and in case you missed it, we have the map right here.

On Reddit, Matt explained how he compiled the data. “Methodology: I asked my ~300k Instagram followers which state their home state dislikes the most using the ‘questions’ feature on my Instagram story,” he explained.

From there, he “logged the results,” writing, “Whichever answer I got the most for each state was placed on the map using Adobe Illustrator.” He didn’t reveal how many of his followers participated and voted.
