    Lots of nice chickies too! I live in Ottawa. It's boring, traffic is a F'ing joke thanks to pioneers and government who never clued into population expansion so the city is a major bottleneck all year round. A typical 20min drive to work takes +1 hour. If there is an accident, you are F'd. Houses keep going up everywhere, for god know why anyone would move here. Things barely change where I live, it just gets noiser and more traffic, while at one end of the city they always seems to get everything including expanding highways while the rest have to suffer. Politicians all live close to Parliament and literally never have to combat traffic so it will never improve. We have a train coming but I'll probably be dead before that's in place. What can I say nice about Ottawa... hmmm. Parliament buildings and what's left of the forest and the Rideau Canal. If I had the choice and/or ability I'd be hightailing it to Vancouver where my best friend lives where nature is all around you. I've been to Vancouver a few times now and you almost have to handcuff me to get me back in the plane. I expect my retiring years will be in Vancouver.

    Sweet, sweet Trinidad. Caribbean island. Nice beaches and no hurricanes.

    Tokyo is alright. There are plenty of activities and night life all year round but it comes at an expensive price. It is also not the most foreigner friendly place on earth, but for every good thing, there are the negatives.

    I personally would love the good ol' California, specifically the Orange County but how that state went all backwards with high taxes, amnesty for illegals... it would take years to get that state back.

    With no atmosphere and no people around I'm not sure I'll need a hospital. Not to mention I won't really be hurt if I happen to fall off of something. And I'm out of school, so it's not a problem. Even if I was though, the internet is good enough.

    I couldnt imagine moving away from the UK to any country. I lived in Canada Vancouver for about two months with my cusion and i started to get severly home sick. For one I just couldnt stand the niceness after a while. Everyone is a little too freindly where my cusion lives.

    On a brighter note I like living in the UK ...
    Love the winter ....
    Love the Summer .... When its hot that is....
    Love the grim look of london
    Love the social life..
    and besides where i live there arnt to many chavs and pikeys... big asian population but they dont cause any trouble so its all cool.

    Hate the current party in office tho. :biggun:

    Under the situation that I am retiring or dont need a super high paying job, I would move back to my home town of somerset, ky.

    Retardedly nice people with southern accents, mild winters but you get to see snow, mountains, slow pace, lake cumberland, houseboats, horses, corn fed beauties, no disasters like earthquakes or floods, only occasional tornados. Its gorgeous down there and its possible for people to live a good life down there with 10 bucks an hour.

    Its all personal preference on what the best place to live is. Even for the same person, it would mean a different place at differet stages of your life. My reccomendation would be to travel and figure whats best for you.

    WTF is that? ^^^ :eek3:
    It's a fancy dress party right? and the theme is Bad Taste? or "If you shagged one of these you would never tell your mates about it"?




    For me, Australia's Gold Coast, but as long as I get to bring all the Italian/American New Jersey girls with me.

    Dude, you're pretty weak if ONE beer puts you anywhere near %0.08, which BTW is the same in Atlanta.

    Yeah, the federal government forced South Carolina to drop our legal limit to 0.08%, or they would continue to tax us and withhold our own money for the DOT. TBH, it has nothing to do with being weak or not, but your body mass and such. I'm a short guy, decently built, but one beer would probably put me near the limit now, regardless of my extremely high tolerance.

    I've been doing a lot of drinking since I last posted here, and usually down between a 6-pack and a 12-pack a day. Even though I won't even really have a buzz after 6, I would certainly fail a breathalizer. I didn't know you lived in Georgia Alex, lol. Good to see you're still here. BTW, South Carolina is the best place to live y'all. Where else would anyone want to live? :)
