Thread The Good Ol' "Best Countries Too Live In" List.

Aren't the taxes in Norway crazy high but you get free education, health care, awesome Internet service, and hot ladies?

That's where speeding tickets are tied to your income as well or something.

Crazy.

I will say that I am rather impressed with their driver training programs there, though I wouldn't want to pay for them for everyone here necessarily.

What age can you get your drivers license there?

It's very similar to Denmark, and there I paid 48% tax. My current wife at the time was going to Med school for free (and receiving a living allowance will enrolled). Health Care is no pay at all, well I never had to pay for any health care when I went to see a doctor.

They have scocio-capitalism down to a science.

Anything to do with cars was extremely expensive in Denmark. It's all an effort to discourage people from driving.

I wish it took two years and thousands to get a license here.

And learning how to fucking merge onto a highway without stopping would be a year of that training.

you actually have to stop before you can merge here now. they've put traffic lights on the onramps to control the flow of merging traffic. one car at a time through the light. some onramps have 2 lanes side by side as well.

Yeah we have those around here. Those are only in use during rush hour.

same. rush hour is quite lengthy though. I'm not even sure it stops during the day anymore in some places around the city.

I've never seen them in use outside rush hour. Though, I will say they ones with double merging lanes and those lights are great for impromptu street races.

Except Semper you seem to forget that if you're of the poorest minority you're treated as a second class citizen with regard to healthcare in the US.
Not true. The poorest - hell, even the fucking illegals - are constantly getting free medical care in ERs. And that's still better medical care than what's offered to the majority of citizens in other western countries.
In most other westernised countries there is no difference between being poor and being well off, you get the same access to treatment and the are treated exactly the same as any other person.
which is why we have better shit than everyone else. we try not to baby and coddle and reward people for being lazy pieces of shit

unfortunately some people feel that we should. those people are called idiots but sadly, idiot have influence among other idiots. mainly because idiots listen to european idiots who think their shit don't stink
