tricycleracer: They speak English in London. Advantage: London.
Tax Boy: according to chart both london and paris are crazy expensive, which is why I'm spending my next european vacation in Sioux City, Iowa
Grither: Meh, NYC beats them both.
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Second, comparing Greater London to Paris is also slightly unfair, as the former has only really existed since 1965. A better comparison may be with the smaller City of London, unless you're also counting Paris' miscellaneous suburbs.Third, because you're casting a wide net for London and a tiny net for Paris, you should really be looking at a per capita or a per square mile metric.
minoridiot: Disney-Paris isn't located in Paris.
whosits_112: tricycleracer: They speak English in London. Advantage: London.The English may have bad teeth, but at least they don't smell of cigarettes and sweat. And I can understand them. Agreed. Advantage: London
vudukungfu: And at lease the cities of Vermont can manage their garbage and sewage.Unlike NYC.
meanmutton: Grither: Meh, NYC beats them both.Ha, no. New York is a shiathole.
meanmutton: Ha, no. New York is a shiathole.
Grither: meanmutton: Ha, no. New York is a shiathole.True, it's no Ypsilanti, that's for sure!
Sybarite: From my experience, people were friendlier in London but the women were hotter in Paris. Stockholm pretty much buried both on the latter metric.
minoridiot: Don't mention this to the Londoners, but the Tower was built by the French.
cptjeff: That size thing was moronic, but I don't think it corrupted the other stats
Sudlow: No need to go to Europe at all. Disney World has very nice UK & France pavilions that accurately recreate the experience of visiting both places. Not to mention the lovely Canada pavilion.

phalamir: Likewise, with museums, they listed free as the cost of most museums in London, but quotes a price for what they admit are the major museums of Paris. And the reason many museums for London are free (if they are not actively kidnapping people off the street to force them to view their collection) is that your average museum in London is something along the lines of "The Worshipful Company of Left-Handed Welsh Transvestite Hedgehog-Groomers Museum of Twee Right Front Leg Combs Dating From 5 May 1642 to 7 May 1642".
phalamir: It may not have corrupted it, but it was indicative of their methodology, which was wide-net London, narrow-net Paris.

Carth: Vermont has less than 1/10th of the population of NYC.
vudukungfu: Carth: Vermont has less than 1/10th of the population of NYC.Less than 1/1000 of the scum, and less Hepatitis, Herpes, and crime, too.We do not allow billboards, massage parlors, or dumping in our waterways.It's illegal to be in the mob up here. It's not looked up at or glamorized. It will get your ass arrested.the Police aren't corrupt.We don't have sewers stuffed full of human remains like gay Paris, and we don't have cameras crammed up everyone's asses like London. We don't frisk every black person we see like NYC.Amazingly, we have a low percentage of homeless people, too.Our food tucks rock, too.And our pizza beats yours, too.
