    I love classic american cars and the fact that you can drive around in absolute dogshit if you have an insurance. Can't do that at all in Germany where you'd have to jump through a billion hoops to get the car registered and checked and whatnot.

  2. Depending on the state and city you live in it can be just as bad as Germany.

    However the great thing about America is you can just move somewhere else and tell them to go fuck themselves.

    In Arizona, you only have to take a driver's test once, it's free mostly, and just get registration and insurance. After that, you only are required to pay around 60 bucks a month insurance and every 2-4 years about 80 bucks to re-register your tags.

    Gods, lucky. I’ve lived in blue states all of my life (Massachusetts and Rhode Island for the majority and now Connecticut) and the amount of hoops you have to jump through to do ANYTHING is fucking just... ugh.

    Good news: taxes are... highest in the country.


    Contrary to what liberals may have believed, Ned Lamont (another Democrat) has indeed made things fucking worse. Oh, East Coast. Will you never learn?
  4. You should move to New Hampshire, being a Libertarian. It's not that far away and Boston is close by.

    I once debated with a Finnish-American guy from CT about stuff like the Iraq war etc. He was a bit of an a-hole. Not everyone in CT is an a-hole though I'm sure.

    @Cimmerian Nights Sure why not.

    Back on a positive note, the US has lots of places I would love to visit.

    - The NASA centers in TX and FL. I'm a HUGE space nerd.
    - Yellowstone national park.
    - The Great Lakes. Got to visit Lake Michigan and it was so... big, and it's not even the biggest one.

    CT is what happens when you have unchecked one-party rule. Doesn't matter which party it is, when there's no one to oppose their bullshit it becomes like a dystopia (see Alabama on the other end). How the richest, most heavily, ever increasingly taxed state can be BILLIONS in the red speaks to the incompetence and total disregard for reality that persists in the governance there. I'm old enough to remember CT before there was an income tax and Gordie Howe was on the Whalers.

    That said.

    New Haven.
    Pizza capital of the world.

    Slogans are nice. Tax free liquor stores conveniently located on the borders are even better.
    Can we just get all of New England to legalize weed already too?

    That should be on everyone's bucket list. Unreal, awesome place.

    As a Wyoming native I can say absolutely yes to everything about the natural beauty part of the States. Granted that are small pockets of shitholes here and there. Some the locals like their land fucked up. Between where I live and small community called Buffalo which is on it's way to Yellowstone (every road in Wyoming leads there in some fashion or another) you can see some garbage. It's few and far between. I was born in a hospital on the foot of a mountain. The Big Horns to be exact. If anyone ever gets the chance. Go and see them. Go to Yellowstone, Shoshone National Park, Thermopolis (hot springs and dinosaur fossils), towns like Buffalo and Sheridan which still have their old west downtowns intact. It can be a great place to be. A lot to see and a lot to do if you are into the outdoors. I love my home and wish more people would come to see it. Most people are friendly. Most. Not all of course but that being a part of human nature. If you get the chance. Wether you are a foreigner or a domestic tourist that has never been. It can be awesome. Nature fucking everywhere. Except where I currently live. It's kind of the dumpster, meth head, industrial part of the state.

    The town I currently live in kind of sucks but that's where the money is.

    EDIT: The next time I make my way north I will take some pictures and such. Post them. I'm not much of a fan of this town but there are some that are just amazing.

    I have read somewhere, that Benjamin Franklin, didn't like the idea of choosing the Eagle as national symbol. Because eagles are ville predators which are not honorable or something. He was more in favour of a snake. Cuz, of don't treat on me!

    No clue if that storry is true.

    If I had a car I'd be totally into those long American roads, that just cut straight through the continent, with miles and miles of absolute desolation to cross

    There's no real equivalent in Europe, and none whatsoever in Norway where any attempt at "road soaring" will just cram you into a rock wall, or plunge you into a fjord
    (in fact, countryside youth killing themselves and all their friends in their cars is still a bit of an unsolved mini-epidemic)

    I'm also fascinated by the big-ass foods, and the cheapness of foods.
    Just recently Subway opened here, and after being used to these lean euro sandwiches, expensive, sparing, "do you want some extra lettuce with that?", I've never had SO much meat and cheese and cheese and meat in a single sandwich. It tasted dangerous. Dangerous! I'm going to be staying the fuck away from there, I'm telling you that right now, I love my life, I don't want a heart attack - but yum! I know this is just one dumb little chain, but to me it's illustrative of American attitude to food - it seems as if it gets thrown after you, you'll ask for a dish, they'll bring you a trough.
    I also do keep getting this confirmed by euros who visit the US, they are baffled - and sometimes a bit frightened - by the food servings in restaurants

    Then, of course, I'm a nerd - and the US has some of the most impressive museums, especially for dinosaurs :0 such as the American Museum of Natural History, amongst plenty more!

    Did you know, there is a Resturant in the US that's advertising with Heart Attacks? And the restaurant's spokesman, 575-pound (261 kg) Blair River, died on March 1, 2011, aged 29, from complications of pneumonia. ... On February 11, 2012, a customer suffered what was reported to be an apparent heart attack while eating a "Triple Bypass Burger" at the restaurant. Source:Wikipedia.

    That is so surreal sounding it almost feels like it would be in the newspapers of a GTA game.

    @Crni Vuk you laugh, but I unironically take pride in our chaotic past and retarded present. The first country-wide Darwin Award is coming our way any day now. Meanwhile I just want a return to the Old West.

    The Us has been at war for nearly it's entire existence. That's pretty neat.
