    When I think of America I think of awesome climate, like Cali seems like heaven, technology, strong economy, innovation, lots of exciting events happening, consumer choice, very social people.

    But I'm curious what your guys' thoughts are on Europe, and maybe even Norway. Do you "look down" on us, think we're inferior, etc, or..what are your thoughts?

    "Cali" is traffic, overcrowding, too many taxes, shitty schools, and dramatically overpriced real estate. Take it from someone who fled.

    I think (Europe) ........that I'll never go there.

    PS: I have to admit I'm happy that those French liberal snobs are finally getting their just desserts.

    Cold weather states generally keep the riff raff out.

    What you think of Norway looking at it from America is the real question.

    Sitting in traffic. Crammed into a BART train car that smells like piss even thought it's brand new. It's easy to be unhappy no matter what the weather is if that's your daily commute.

    Yes, I'd be in San Diego in two seconds if I was independently wealthy, and didn't have kids. Or Miami for that matter. But seriously, anyplace is great when you're rich.
