ransack.: There are no king-sized Snickers in Europe
rogue49: As globalization occursAll will be shared.Soon, all good stuffs will be available everywhere.Then the cream rises to the top.Americans distribute theirs...Europeans distribute theirs...and so on for Asia, Africa, etc.You can't keep a good thing secret.
gja: Bob Down: [th08.deviantart.net image 850x679]Awww, how cute. Coming from somone's whose country was founded by the worst criminal elements the British empire had to deal with./glass houses and whatnot
perigee: Reason 1: Europe won't take you.Two rules:- Can't go without a job offer.- Job can't be offered unless Nobody in the EU can fill it better than you.So, unpack.
phrawgh: fusillade762: 2. CHEESEHey now, I have access to plenty of extremely tasty cheese that comes from about a 40 minute drive away.[shop.tillamook.com image 800x904]You live 40 miles from a supermarket?

Though I could have sworn last time I made the drive it didn't take me much longer than 45 minutes.
Janusdog: Janusdog: What the hell is that curvy gray and pink thing?
Ohlookabutterfly: OgreMagi: Thunderpipes: Ya, because EU countries are doing soooooo well.They always forget their social programs were basically paid for with American tax dollars. They don't pay for a military because the American bases keep them safe.Personally, I'm all for closing all the bases in Europe and reducing our military along with the military budget by that amount. We can no longer afford to be the world police.No. You jerks ruined the world economy back in 08 and I lost my first home because of it. America has way more to make up for to the rest of the world than a few stupid useless military bases(who are you protecting everyone from, zee Nazis?) so take that bullshiat America first protectionist attitude and pound it. I say you guys hang all your wall street leeches and spread their wealth among all the worlds poor, downtrodden, and hungry, eh?
FunkOut: The only problem with Finland is Finnish is pretty bloody difficult to learn compared to Swedish or Danish.
Jim_Callahan: Um... what kind of moron doesn't know that "American" cheese is just processed cheddar, and that we produce basically every variety of cheese domestically?
AutumnWind: ISO15693: Forget Europe. I'm moving to New Zealand.Giant bugs of horror. Not worth it!
contrapunctus: menschenfresser: You kidding me? I'm so tired of Republitard derpnecks running this once-wonderful country, I'd be in the UK now if it weren't impossible to get in legally. As far as I know, if an employer will sponsor you there and prove a British citizen can't do the same job then you can get in for a little while. Otherwise, if you're a Russian gangster or middle eastern tyrant with millions of pounds to spend then they'll roll out the red carpet for you to buy a place in Knightsbridge. However, we innocent little Americans don't get any more preference for permanent entry than Libyans. :(Here's the problem, though.Even if you take out the teahadist portion of our population, the fact remains that America has done goddamn near everything in its power to self destruct anyway. And hell, the Tea Party is actually right about one thing: the US is debting itself into oblivion.We shipped our manufacturing overseas. We shiat all over our tech workers with H1B visas. We allowed corporate power to wrap its tentacles around the mouth of every news outlet so that nothing even approaching a critique of the oligarchy will air.Now we're staring down the barrel of wealth inequality on par with pre-Depression levels. The difference between now and 80 years ago is that the working class no longer functions as a united fighting force, but instead fights amongst itself with the Roman Circus R vs D 'debate'.George Carlin was right. We have created a pile of shiat too thick to climb out of. Those of you who want to save America have my support and I truly honor your efforts, but anyone paying attention knows that we're facing an uphill battle of epic proportions to get this country back from the brink of corporate fascism.I have roughly 40 years on this planet and I'd like to spend it somewhere civil and quiet, thank you.
Kit Fister: Holy hell a lot of hate for America here.
Schrodinger's Basement Cat: I would love to get a job and move to the UK. Unfortunately it's very difficult unless you are a citizen of an EU country.
The_Original_Roxtar: think about this situation: you're lying in bed, which weapon can you bring to bear faster?

So that only leaves the UK for most Americans.
Mayhem_2006: So, unpack.That and most countries require that you speak the language. So that only leaves the UK for most Americans.And we don't want you. No offence, but we've seen the crazy stuff happening over there and are worried it might be contagious.
Psycat: Otherwise, there's no one 'Chinese' language--Mandarin, Cantonese, etc. are generally mutually unintelligible. That's why it survives.
illannoyin: Really? Cheese? Ok you asked for it.Behold, the cheese aisle at Woodman's...Three refrigerator cases. First, the small one on the left.[i.imgur.com image 640x480]Then, two more on the right. The cheese section ends at the second refrigerator case where the people are standing. The second case on the left is butter.[i.imgur.com image 640x480]/Yes, they have Lurpak and Kerry Gold butter in addition to every conceivable variety of cheese//What now biatches?
Ringshadow: Psycat: Otherwise, there's no one 'Chinese' language--Mandarin, Cantonese, etc. are generally mutually unintelligible. That's why it survives.Mandarin is then national language of China. They voted on it and everything. Cantonese is a close second. If you speak Mandarin you can get by all over China except in potentially the most obscure regions and there's probably still someone there who speaks Mandarin because again, it's the natural language and by law everyone's got to know it./took two terms of Mandarin in college//now understand why translations are always farked up
DrunkenBob: Europe's more crowded. I'd be ushered into Yankee slums and have to knife fight Muslims and Africans for a box of Mac 'n Cheese.
Secret Master of All Flatulence: Kit Fister: I am a stubborn gun owner. No thanks.Right there with you:[i135.photobucket.com image 800x600][i135.photobucket.com image 358x295][i135.photobucket.com image 600x800]
Monkeyfark Ridiculous: Australia for me. If Mad Max times are coming, I'm going to do them properly.
