Europe was once great and dominate politically and economically. It in no doubt is still a great place to live and raise your families.
Europe still is a great place to live...On the most recent list of countries with the highest Human Development Index ...is
1.) Norway
2.) Sweden
3.) Australia
4.) Canada
5.) Netherlands
6.) Belgium
7.) Iceland
8.) United States of America
9.) Japan
10.) Ireland

But you know what? Europe is a better place nowadays BECAUSE it is NOT "Great" in the sense that you use it!

Because if you compared Europe when it was great...and compare it to America now....America would look like pansies! You would be insignificant compared to the atrocities Europe "performed" on the world.

Dunno the rest...
You know I'm a little cheesed about this list. After a decade or more of
being number 1 or 2, I see Canada has slipped to (I believe it's 4th actually Bas, with Australia 3rd).
So now that the country isn't as great to live in, maybe I'll have more time on my hands like the rest of you to argue points that sometimes show merit but for the most part show a need for oneupsmanship.

You men should take up gardening. It's good for your insides.

In a protagonist/antagonist (I can say as I please because I'm behind a computer) situation, it seems the barking is louder than perhaps it would be in person.

Don't some of you have sore heads from banging them against the wall? Why the desire to prolong the headache?

I might suggest there are better things in your life than a well cloaked long distance frustration outlet. Your family comes to mind.

Just my thoughts on a sunny Sunday in Vancouver,

Cheers to you all,

Cal

True..but I'd rather take my frustration out ...long distance than on my family ;-)

I corrected the list...thanks for spotting the error..

Cheers,
Bas

The better words for it are "cleaning up as a reaction to complaints of members".

The posts are not killed, they have been moved to Texas.

Wasn't that an act of moderation? There must be one word describing this.

To tell you the truth, I didn't search for them
