I came across this blog a few weeks ago and I couldn't resist to share it.
17 cultural reasons why this European never wants to live in America - Fluent in 3 months - Language Hacking and Travel Tips
I find all his points true and I love how blunt and honest it sounds.
I'm a foreign living in the US, as much as I thank the country for the opportunities given, I'm ready to leave. please read it and share your comments

Europe is great if what matters to you is security in your mediocrity.
I doubt most of what I and many successful people I know have done would be remotely possible in most of Europe.
But for those with little to no aspirations, it would be the best choice.

I agree with some of his points. But he seems to be too negative and things and experiences just balances out wherever you are. At least that is my opinion.

I can't, for the life of me, understand the point of making these sorts of "lists" why you don't want to do something. How negative and who cares?

The stupidest part about this blog post is that it starts with "Americans are too sensitive."

That's like coming up with a list of criticisms directed at someone and starting it with, "You are too sensitive to criticism. Now read the other 16 things I don't like about you." And when they don't want to read the list, you can say, see, I knew you were too sensitive.

Btw, I didn't read the rest after seeing #1. Also it doesn't belong in NYC forum.

When did individual people start thinking that their opinion is more than just that: their opinion. Who cares about nonsense like this?
