There is Jome doing it again.
Cause I don't care where I belong no more
What we share or not I will ignore
And I won't waste my time fitting in
Cause I don't think contrast is a sin
No, it's not a sin

i might move to luxemburg

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

It's been in the papers that Norway is dear as fuck. I mean you might be the best country but if a pint costs £9 you can fuck off and who listens to the U.N. anyway.

Yer Australia's pretty cool place to live, pretty laid back and relaxed country.

Luxembourg is a little country near from the East of France (very near from my house  8). People have very good incomes,  and lots of stuffs are cheaper (alcohol, it depends on which kind though, cigarettes and oil , though taxes start to increase). Overall, it's a cool country, some dope clubs and fine girls ( some hot Portugaese )

More like a tax haven to rich businessmen from all over Europe.. that's why their GDP per capita is twice/thrice the rest of the countries..
Half of European businessmen/investors got their money placed there.

without a doubt man but for the same job you earn twice what you would earn in France. (taxes are one of the reason but not the only one in this case) . Lots of French people go to work at Luxembourg. Even if you have a "dirty" job you will have a decent income

I think this is pretty meaningless. But you cant really measure opportunity. So I guess literacy will do.
