Norway's Underclass
    #1706911 - 07/11/03 09:12 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

"Seven per cent of Norwegian men and six per cent of women wear the same pair of undies for at least a whole week before changing to a fresh pair," reports the Age, a newspaper from Melbourne, Australia. Meanwhile, the Norwegian paper Aftenposten reports that a "record crowd" is expected at next month's meeting of "Norway's official association for losers."

Earlier this week, Reuters reported that Norway ranked No. 1 in a U.N. survey of "the best countries in which to live." We shudder to think who's No. 2.

Have you a list of the best countries to live in with their respective average and median income, crime stats, population density, education, and environmental cleanliness? I'd love to see a list of the best countries. I bet USA is about 15th on the list.

Not the complete list, just a brief overview. You'll have to look it up on the UN website if you want all of them. USA is number 7. Canada is number 8.

"But Canada, which had been in first place in the overall index of 175 countries for seven years until 2001, conducted its own poll, apparently timed to the U.N. report.

Canadian media reported that 89 percent of the country had an "absolute conviction that we have a better quality of life than the United States."

Just ask Rono about it!

The list is goofy if it has the US above Canada. I've spent a month and a half in Toronto, and it's head and shoulders better than any American city except San Fran. Canada is just nicer than America.

Toronto is a great city, I've spent a lot of time there myself.

I went to Google and typed "UN quality of life index" in the search box. Voila!

http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0778562.html was the first hit. I opened it up and at the bottom it had the link to the UN document --

http://hdr.undp.org/reports/global/2002/en/

Google. Learn it, love it.

I was born and raised in Canada -- spent the first three and a half decades of my life there. I have lived in all three of the Territories and seven out of the ten provinces. I moved here to the Dominican Republic more than fifteen years ago to get away from Canada's overwhelming government control in the life of its citizens.

My parents still live in Ottawa. I usually visit them twice a year, but I can't imagine moving back to Canada -- things have gotten even worse since I emigrated.

If I ever do choose to switch countries again, Norway will not be on my list of potential destinations. That underwear thing is just gross.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

BAH I didn't think to use Google, I just went straight to the UN's website, and assumed it would be easy to find.

LOL! -- I hear ya!

I got sucked in like that, too, a couple of years back. The UN website is a freaking nightmare to navigate. I can never find what I'm looking for. Whenever I want to find something on it, I use Google.

It's no surprise the website is such a jumble -- it's merely a reflection of the chaos that is the UN itself.
