    7. Abroad is full of dirty, stupid foreigners (this applies regardless of where you live now or are moving to)

    That article is a bunch of crap! If and when you move abroad, learn the word assimilation.

    KingofDC saidMehhh... America is the best and anyone who leaves her is stupid. No other country even compares. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness! We win every Olympics and we claim all the actors/singers/dancers. We have a majority of the top tier universities. We have Wall Street, Silicon Valley and NOVA. We have mother fucking Lebron James, Tom Brady, Mike Trout and Andy Roddick. We run this world...

    True it's a parody site, but I think at the core, many of the reasons are accurate.

    I Think the idea behind the article is correct. I'm living abroad in Scandinavia and they do make it more difficult for foreigners to live here. The language is different which can be frustrating and the last idea that you'll just hang out with people from your country is so true. Everyone always recommends that I hang out with their other Canadian friends in the city

    I'm curious to hear how many countries you have been to that would qualify you to decide that America is the best. I run walking tours in my city here and Americans tend to be the most ignorant people across the globe. My first question I always ask people is"where are you from?" Most guests say Australia, France, Singapore... Ect and the Americans say Boston, Texas, san francisco.... Wtf..

    Actually the US is pretty far down the list in Olympic medals per capita (the only way to judge it) and it's about 25th in education and maybe 6-8th in economic well-being.

    So keep dreaming your myopic nonsense.

    1. You don't understand sarcasm.

    2. I prefer to say the city/state because the US is so big, and I prefer if people from other countries did the same. For instance, being from Paris is different than being from the South of France.

    It reminds me when I was going to school near Boston, and I went to Spain. When people asked me where I was from, I said Boston, because I didn't think they would know Cleveland, the town I grew up. But one time I slipped up, and said Cleveland, and they instantly said, "LeBron James!" It amazes me how so many American cities due to our pop culture.

    In regards to your Olympic comment, we would be so far up the list in medals if we included all the athletes who live, train, and went to school in the US.

    I am preparing a move to Monte Carlo.

    It is a HUGE risk.

    Risk is what makes life interesting....
