Good point. But I've heard that Norwegian girls are very...accommodating.

Anyway, if I leave the country, I'm goin to London. In 2012.

Don't tell anyone, but we're building a super power down here, eventually, when we can be bothered (maybe after summer, but that's when the football will start again, so...).

U.S. Falls 3rd in Bank Ranking, After UK, Australia - ABC News

Australia being No. 2 suprises me. I'm pretty sure the public school system has gone to the firey depths. That GDP ranking is that for 2007? It would be interesting to see the GDP wealth ranking post crisis.

Australia - fuck yeah!

Pity about everything that is absolutely rooted in this country - but according to those pre-requisites this is truly heaven on Earth! Now if only we can take out those pesky Norwegians... What have they done for the world lately? Hosted Eurovision? A winter Olympics?

I like endless summers on the beach, and Norwegian girls never particularly attracted me. Also, I prefer red bikinis to white wooly pullovers.

The reason for being "accomodating" is Norwegian men are drunk all the weekends.

Let´s see where bankrupt Iceland falls from #3, pre-crisis

All figures are based on data from 2007.

I know what you mean. According to the Irish media, the Irish health system is the worst in the world.
