I'm from the UK, and there are certain things I really like about the place, and certain things which really bug me. When I visit other places, or hear about other countries on the net and tv and stuff, sometimes I'm grateful for the place I live, and then sometimes want to move! It's hard to say which is the "best" place to live, but hey...

For example, I don't like the way everything is so expensive here...and I mean everything! The £ may be a fairly good currency, but the amount most people work, you hardly get anything for your money. And also it's often quite an unfriendly place. Maybe it's just my experience or the place I live, I dunno. However there are some cool things too, like, ummm...the national health service lol. Oh and book vouchers. You gotta love those...

What d'you like/dislike about your country or the place you live?

What do you like and dislike about your country?
......the move towards socialism with seemingly no one else in America caring about its significance. Am I the only person in the US who gives a damn anymore?

On the bright side, it'll all be over soon enough...

Why... what are you plotting?
It's more of a premonition. I don't see the US lasting too much longer with the way our idiot political leaders are handling things. I foresee things getting much worse in the coming years to the point where possibly a second revolution will likely occur.

This is, of course, just my own analytical speculation. Even if these things don't come to fruition, the US will be very different from what it is now. (even more screwed up) In all likelihood, I will denounce my citizenship and move to Central or South America. I can be a lumberjack cutting down the rain forests to further disprove global warming. :lol:

not enough loli's.... i mean... cough...
:rotflmao:

As for Finland I guess the bad things are that everything is expensive, and the damn cold weather though it is pretty nice to have seasonal change too...

Good things would be freedom, in this case I especially mean that in Finland we have a law that allows walking in the woods even if they're owned by someone along with fishing, picking up berries and so on. As far as I know that's not possible everywhere in the world....:( Also I think I should be thankful for living in one of the safest countries in the world, no natural disasters, no wars, no terrorism, no religious/political extremists and despite the so called high violence statistics and one of the biggest guns-per-person number its still very safe to walk even after dark... I've never been attacked/robbed/mugged/stabbed/murdered/raped:lol: and I live in the 6th biggest city in finland, almost in the center too!

I've actually always wanted to live there. It seems like a marvelous country.

Canada's pretty cool. Citizens have a lot of freedom and the people/scenery/wildlife are all very nice. Free healthcare is also a sweet perk.

The only thing that I really don't like about Canada is WINTER.

The good: awesome beaches, national emblem animals can be eaten, awesome spots for camping, we put out bush fires with wet sacks.

The bad: we are the arse end of the world, prime minister and his cabinet are all stupids.

What a load of crap. Depends immensely on the quality of life, and the standard of living.

I love this island. Beaches, sun, nightlife, nice enough people, and free education and health system. My biggest complaint about this place is the wet winters, and the fact that we're an island can be very, very frustrating when it comes to anything electronic (Prices are almost 150% of their actual MSRP on average. The cheapest Phenom II 920 is going for over 440$). Also property tends to be ridiculously overpriced too when comparing to larger countries.

With these pros, I suppose adding Australia to my list of possible alternate countries is a must. :D

Amen brotha'. Though it's much safer to not trust the lies of either side. ;)

What country is that?

Who's that guy from South Africa? Is it Schumi? He's going to tear this thread apart if he posts here.
