The people are the most self-congratulatory, self-obsessed lot I’ve ever encountered in a city populous outside of San Fran, not to mention socially-inept and awkward. Talking with your average Seattle is like talking to a sixteen year old kid with Aspergers who spends 2/3rds of their time on the...

India is hell on Earth. India is the not the "biggest" democracy in the world, as all Indians boast, but the biggest HYPOCRISY in the world. It’s all “peaceful” and great until you get hepatitis b/e from drinking or eating over there. Then you’re out sick for months with liver damage. NONE of their...

The Dutch are very shallow and boring people. However, the International dutchies seem more travelled and interesting. Dutch people are just happy when something works and they don't bother looking for a better way of doing things. Because of this they are slow to adopt new technologies. For...

It's only argument against blandness is the red light district and the "coffee shops" that legally sell marijuana, but I see those more as tourist gimmicks than truly Dutch elements. My observations of Dutch people: Tall and attractive; very wooden, stoic, and somewhat unfriendly and rude; very...

NYC is for people who like a lot of stimulation and the opportunity, not the guarantee, of being very successful at whatever they end up doing. NYC is littered with people who have money but don't care about meaningful relationships. There's a HUGE rich/poor divide, and that's means people in...
