For some reason I want to add a poll...

Why the fuck is this thread exist in a game site?
I like reading "non-gaming" thread in VGC

I am originally in the Philippines, moved here in the US of A 3 years ago and I am planning to stay here for good.

Let me hear the great stuff and shit things about your country... I will be doing USA.

GREAT things:

* The highways! traffic will be on the shit list, but damn the highways here in the US is awesome!

* A culture pot... On the company I'm working right now the department head comprise of me (a filipino), a jewish iranian woman, a white american man, an african american woman, a latina woman, a german guy, a korean woman, a belgian guy, a white woman, a filipino woman, a belizian and another cauc american... more culture = more food, more stories, more knowledge, more of everything! and I'm a sucker for multicultural team :)

* Salary... fuck I can never earn this much money even if i work 5 jobs in my originating country...

SHIT things.

* Traffic... I work in LA close to Beverly HIlls and the traffic is REALLY FUCKED UP!

* TAX... yeah probably any country has this problem :p

* RACIST pricks.. yeah it exist in america...

 

Note: okay one of the main reason why I wanna ask this is because I know a lot of people here are from Europe... and I am dying to hear about Europe... I am planning to go there someday... and I wanna hear especially from you guys :)

I only been to 3 countries... philippines, japan and USA... my country was an archipelago so unlike most of you guys... you can drive to another country... expand my imagination :)

where you from? :O



Spain:

 

· (In most cases) Open-minded people.

· Cool landscapes.

· Greatest comedians in all Europe.

 

- Rotten Goverment, aided by the fact that most of the population is lazy and apatethic and they let them screw us all, without blinking or feeling remorse. We lack proper Education and Health system, and even the most basic rights are trying to be censored. It's not a matter of one political band, since they are all rotten anyway.

- We have the worst results in education from all Europe. In fact, it is well-known that several agencies throughout Europe do not accept people whose studies were done only in Spain's regions. Maths, particulary, is something we lack: total academic failure. And there's like a 40% of the youngers that have left school. A 15% of Spain's total population is illiterate.

- I won't even mention the Judicial System. It sucks. It's done only to protect the rich, as simple as that. Did I mention that the highest punish you can receive is spending 62 years in prison?

I compiled a list of things I dont like about canada, but realized i would probably get banned for racism.. Yet Harper still managed to top the list..


but we do have Hockey, Killer snow capped mountains, and some of the Best weed in the world. (BC)

I am Torgo, I take care of the place while the master is away.

"Hes the clown that makes the dark side fun.. Torgo!"

I bet with padid that By end of 2014 the PS4 worldwide Lifetime sales will be larger than WiiU world wide Lifetime sales by 4 million. He wins if the gap is small than 4 million.
