No US cities in the top 27.
The 27 cities with the best quality of life in the world
Meh, they only looked at 430 cities across the entire world.
America's "happy" cities are in the small towns that never make such list "metrics" like banking systems, hospitals, stores, and night life - all in the same city because driving 10 miles to the next town for a concert hall is just too far in their opinion.
The problem with such rankings, is that most of them are extremely subjective.
Nothing irritates me more, than a massive city. I hate massive cities.
Most people like them.... (I think....).... but I hate them. I hate massive crowds where I can't hardly walk anywhere. I hate non-stop noise that never ends. I hate flickering lights flashing in my face until the end of time.
I'll take old Hilliard, over any of those places.
One of the metrics was the sub-way system. I'll take this over any sub-way system.
Sports? Massive stadiums, where the cost of a ticket is a weeks wage, only to end up with a worse view of the action, than you could get with your remote at home? And pay 1/4th the cost for all the drinks you could possibly want?
The only measurement that actually mattered to me, was the crime. Crime is a big deal. It doesn't matter what any city offers, if you lose your stuff to thieves, and end up mugged on the way home.
And I love how Singapore was on there, given the way they handle crime is with a noose. You want to hang criminals, in order to catch up to Singapore, I'm all for it.
Most cons approve of the death penalty.
Singapore is great. They rank at Number 8 on the corruption index, pretty impressive for Asia; the U.S. is way down at number 18. Higher numbers mean less corruption on this scale. They were as corrupt as Mexico some 70 years ago, had enough of the status quo in Asian culture and launched an anti-corruption drive, and are now one of the best places in the world for education and doing business.
The U.S. desperately needs an anti-corruption drive; or perish.
No shit. They don't have that 13% problem.
That's it, blame everything on racism.
The US doesn't have any cities that are any good, that's why.
You could live in one of these places, there are hundreds of them all over. Nice old towns.
Or you could live
Or you could live in places which aren't that great to walk around and feel comfortable.
The US has cities with crime rates that are too high, where you need to have a car, where everything's kind of stressful, or you could live somewhere else.
7 in germany, LOL
That was before frau Merkel imported a million Muslims. Watch what happens now.
