That's horrible...

Seriously though... yes, stereotypes do really die hard. Most people still have an image in their head of Los Angeles that's about 25 years stale, but if you try telling people that the Valley is now mostly Asian and Hispanic, they're building public transit, and the smog doesn't choke birds, they won't believe you... even if they've never been here.

Australia is for the most part a modern, cosmopolitan country with a multicultural composition... just like the US and Canada

Is this list your way of demonstrating how far above the other two you believe the US to be? That you had to put a dotted line between the US and the other two.

If only the New Zealand dollar was as strong as the other Western countries' currencies, then I would choose it over Australia (I find it more green and the people are much more humble).

Currency exchange is important for me since I like travelling a lot.

Not when they're talking about Aussies or Americans...

Lucky in what way? Tell that to the jobless and the homeless.

If I were to choose either of those countries, I will definitely choose Canada or Australia. They both have a overall good quality of life, the education is pretty amazing and have pretty good healthcare systems as well.

The US on the other hand needs a lot of work to improve their healthcare system since it is too expensive for most US citizens to pay. Plus they don't have paid leave as mandatory and find the education system a joke.

Have you seen Toronto's skyline recently... No its not NYC and not quite as impactful as Chicago but its getting there. Aside from those two cities Toronto's skyline is easily number 3 in North America
