Surprised about the UK though.
Everyone has their own taste in climate. I come from Estonia (think of it as Finland) and I can't stand temperatures above 25 Celsius. Below -25 C is just fine for me.
The cultures of countries are different and it'd be offensive to call some cultures better than others.
One more thing, attractive easy women might lead you to bad situations. Plus they don't work as good as their more intelligent counterparts.
I'm not saying that I'd rather live in a developing country--I'm pretty happy with my life in America. But just because I'm happy doesn't mean I'm not constantly stressed out. It was pretty eye-opening for me when I went to rural Bangladesh and saw how tranquil life is there, despite the high poverty rates. We could maybe learn a thing or two from that.
You've got a point about attractiveness being subjective, though it can still be measured by consensus opinion. Not that that's going to be the best way for an individual. They can make that assessment themselves. Access to fulfilling sexual/dating/romantic opportunities can also be measured, as can sex-aversion/neuroticism.
person 2, petty, petulant, adversarial, angry, insecure, the sort who lashes out at others online he disagrees with because of all of the above (or thinks he disagrees with, as he's not especially good at reading), has a view on same topic that is entirely conventional, the product of the time and place he was born, irrevocably shackled to his own culture.
person 2 calls person 1's worldview "narrow"...
(Ironically, I'm posting this comment on the same day I'm set to learn about "attractiveness" in my Social Psych class. Maybe I'll learn something!)
I understand how to say the same thing using different words in a way that would be almost universally accepted, even applauded, it's not that I'm bad with words.... but.... I just also think it's silly that people get so worked up over semantics and word connotations without caring about what is true or what the words actually mean, that virtually nobody is capable of logical or rational reflection when they are thus triggered, and that as a result almost none of us can be truly honest and just say what we mean; we have to constantly tiptoe around eggshells trying to find inoffensive and socially acceptable ways to convey some portion of a similar idea. Often tiresome, sometimes amusing.
Probably has something to do with being on the spectrum.
By the way, I had a problem with this quiz. It wouldn't show Norway, even though I tried typing it three times. But after my time was up, it showed I *had* got it. Just a glitch, I guess.
Why aren't microstates like Monaco/Andorra etc or rich oil states like Qatar/Bahrain on here though? Why doesn't their wealth correlate to their HDI? I'm sure there are reasons, but I don't know enough about these places to guess why.
Qatar, Kuwait and the Emirates are more wealthy and have more oil but I think education and life expectancy lag behind wages in these countries, which could negatively impact their HDI score.
This the right order:
9. United States
(From Wikipedia) The Human Development Index (HDI) is a composite statistic of life expectancy, education, and income per capita indicators. A country scores higher HDI when the life expectancy at birth is longer, the education period is longer, and the income per capita is higher. It is used to distinguish whether the country is a developed, a developing or an underdeveloped country.
just because she didnt post her source doesnt mean it is an opinion. (Perhaps it is simply the latest data of the source you quoted, or another place that has more recent data than wikipedia)
Hitchens' razor is an epistemological razor expressed by writer Christopher Hitchens. It says that the burden of proof regarding the truthfulness of a claim lies with the one who makes the claim; if this burden is not met, then the claim is unfounded, and its opponents need not argue further in order to dismiss it

A bad king, however... Nominally = risk management.
