How does Norilsk, a city of 134,00 on Russia's far-flung frozen tundra, make our list? Well, this is how Time magazine described it:

Norilsk was founded in 1935 as a Siberian slave labor camp, and life there has pretty much gone downhill since.

Norilsk is home to the world's largest heavy metal smelting complex, with little or no regulartory oversight. Polluted water and air make life expectancy in this city around just 40 years. Within 30 miles of the city, there is not a single living tree.

And it's pretty darn cold. Norilsk is the northernmost city on the planet with a population over 100,000. Average temperature is about 14 degrees Fahrenheit (-10 Celcius). The city is covered with snow for about 250-270 days a year, with snow storms for about 110-130 days. Other than that, it's really balmy up there.

Yeah, it's a scary list.  But it's a stupid list too.  To put Saskatoon on the list and ignore places like Mogadishu, Baghdad, Kabul, Peshawar, Kigali etc . . .  Huh? Huh?

The population of Saskatoon is somewhere around 225,000 and last year we had three murders.  The year before we had 7.

9th most dangerous city in the world?  Ridiculous. Disgusted

I always knew Canadians were dangerous. I just didn't know they were violent too.

What makes it surprising is that it made 9th without giving that much weight to wind chill.

Yeah, if they factored wind chill into the equation, I imagine we'd have moved up a couple of spots. Shocked

I suspect that it's on the list because they can see Sarah Palin from there... Shocked
