poll published by the UN

"The Human Development Index (HDI), published annually by the UN, ranks nations according to their citizens' quality of life rather than strictly by a nation's traditional economic figures. The criteria for calculating rankings include life expectancy, adult literacy, school enrollment, educational attainment, and adjusted real income."

basically a poll showing the top 10 countries to be in

Everything is so incredibly cheap over there right now, so it's pretty much paradise for the consumer...

It's quite funny to see us ranked at number 9 while you hear sooooo many people complaining here about how our country has gone to shit in the past decade (mostly the 1.5 million people that voted for Geert Wilders at the last elections).

I can imagine why we are ranked top 10 though. I think this is indeed quite a good country to live in.

Am I the only one who noticed the list was from 2007? Unfortunately, it's the most recent list in that category i could find.

HAHAHAHAHA, HAHAHA, HA

Ok it's not too bad in terms of standard of living or whatever, but the level of governmental incompetence and at times corruption is beyond fathom. Then again I suppose everyone sees their own country in a bad light when they do well in these polls :P

I already dissagree - on my personal list Switzerland would come top.

1. Iceland - depressing weather! i like cold sometimes, but not all year. also there is basically one place to live. reykjavik might be okay but a lot of places probably suck. also debt.
2. Norway - see above, except it's rich
3. Australia - skin cancer due to very hot weather and ozone depletion
4. Canada - depends largely on where you live again. vancouver and toronto i agree are good to live in.
5. Ireland - still tackling immense debt, right? pressumably some fairly poor public service.
6. Sweden - agree
7. Switzerland - agree
8. Japan - lol pollution, social injustice, seems a pretty shitty place to live a lot of the time
9. Netherlands - agree
10. France - somewhat agree

you're joking me right?

out in the country side is the best place to live. so much room, loads of open space. Do whatever you want, hangout with friends. It's awesome. It's not so closed in and busy as the cities.


You have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours would eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be.
