bollocks?

Definitely. Look at the Infrastructure and Risk & Safety ratings for example. The USA has 100 (the best?) in both categories, which can only be a joke. The economies of Italy and Germany are rated equal - big time BS.

I think in the US more people are being murdered each day than in Germany (percentual)...and I wouldn't equal Italy's economy with the german one neither...interesting list!

Woooo-hooooo! We're # 11 !!!!!!!!!

You are french??????

This can't be right, Everything here is wrong all the time!

Well, The roads are good here and safety is good also unless you live near urban blacks.

The list seems to cover alot of "subjective" type stuff also.

per capita, there are more murders in Poland than the US.

There's problems in the US, sure, but, there's plenty of people living high off the hog too, and they make up for everyone who can't get it together and act civilized. More people live high off the hog here than not. Life for the vast majority of Americans is pretty good, if not great.

I don't see China so they must be close to last.
TheOther 5 | 3,801

Well, The roads are good here

C'mon. Everybody is complaining about our crumbling highways and bridges (well, at least here on the west coast that is), about the joke of a power grid we have, and so much more. To rate the American infrastructure as an A+ is way over the top. A B- would be fair IMHO.

...safety is good also unless you live near urban blacks

... or near urban white trailer trash, near urban Latinos, near urban Chinese, ...

Seriously though: there are far too many nutters running around with guns in this country, killing far too many innocent people. And the crime statistics doesn't look too good either:

This puts things in perspective. Maybe quality of life isn't that great in the UK, compared to Czech Republic which is a beautiful country with the old buildings. It looks like a postcard.

GERMANY:

The survey says UK has a really high cost of living @ 29 while Czech Republic's is 58. UK is an expensive place to live!
UK also has shoddy infrastructure, according to that survey.

dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1240988/France-tops-list-best-places-live-world-fifth-year-row--Britain-languishes-25th.html

Thats because you live in Mexico. Complaining doesn't equal fact.

joke of a power grid we have,

Um, I'm pretty familiar with it. It's really not bad. Could always be better though.

B- would be fair IMHO.

B+ for me.

or near urban white trailer trash, near urban Latinos, near urban Chinese, ...

I live with all of the above, I stand by my first post. There is a reason I bought acreage an hour from Dayton. Its my family and friends "lifeboat" if war breaks out.

California has been handed over already? ;)

Complaining doesn't equal fact

I suggest that you drive the I5 north and see for yourself...

It's really not bad

Except for the rolling blackouts and the loss of power every time the wind reaches 15 mph.

I live with all of the above

Never been to Ohio. Does Dayton really have the same problems as the Bay Area? I"m surprised.

I've driven it in Seattle but not SF. Was in SF in 07' for a spell. Nice brunch at the Cliff house.

Except for the rolling blackouts and the loss of power every time the wind reaches 15 mph.

Rolling blackouts were a completely manufactured event in the Enron days. I guess the grid could be in pretty bad shape there with the financial situation.

Never been to Ohio. Does Dayton really have the same problems as the Bay Area? I"m surprised.

Well, I don't know that Its a problem per-se. Ohio is one of the more populous states and has many cities that have the usual issues. Our cities began to decline 30 years ago with the departure of heavy industry. Dayton is about 45% black and 51% white. Understand that its really not about race but culture. Black folk hate n*ggers too. I actually enjoy the stress and chaos, I kind of thrive on that stuff. I'm the Michael Savage of Ohio.

There's no comparison whatsoever. I've live all over the U.S. including Ohio and have lived in the Bay Area now for 15 years. No rolling blackouts anymore, that was a fraud.

I believe so. Your new currency is on the way:

This can't be right, Everything here is wrong all the time!

Especially this:

Look at freedom index.

All capitalist countries are 100
While countries like Turkmenistan, Cuba, etc are 0

If there were not fool naives, 5% of people woudn't have been able to own 90% of wealth in capitalist countries. Enjoy your freedom. Take some air (if you bosses let you go out while you are at work.)

Take some air (if you bosses let you go out while you are at work.)

We don't get paid for strolling around taking air, although we would like that very much :)

I'm going to suggest that at the next meeting.

Well, I spent 5 weeks driving around California and the one thing that surprised me most then was the appalling state of the roads.. Mind you it was 7 years ago, maybe things have improved since..

Wow, I can't speak for Cuba, but Turkmenistan is well deserving of 0.
nomaderol 5 | 726
7 Jan 2010  #27
why? because basic needs such as electric, water, hospitals are for free for all? when basical needs are free there is freedom. when it is not (as in capitalist world) freedom is 0.

however, you naives, if you read their data of people whose wallets are very big, you think you have freedom. those few people are mentioning their own freedom and hence indexing themselves by giving 100 to themselves while giving you free air only and you are enjoying this free air freely. if they were able to control also air, they would be selling and controlling you also by air. if you continue to support capitalism, i am sure you intelligent (!) people will help them a few in the future on teaching how to control air also, that's your last rope that you are trying to give it to them. mazoshists become happy when they give control to the greedy sadists more and more. enjoy your freedom. 100s? lol
