Don't mean to stir **** or feed the troll, but I've been to Norway and most of the Scandinavian ones and sorry to offend, but they are some most boring places on earth. People cant afford to buy anything since costs are so high, booze is astronomical, travel costs mean no one goes anywhere, restaurants and food generally suck, people are friendly but unless you are rich its like a happy prison...

I've been some pretty crap Eastern European countries and for all their problems and inaccessibility to heath, education, and mobility... I'd go back to visit or work way before I step foot in Norway again.

Sorry bud!

I am not a fat American. I am a husky American.

We only appear fat due to our large American penises.

The women; well yeah, they a little fat.

They definitely talk about how fat we are.

When I was in a rural pub in Ireland I overheard a group of guys heckling about "fat Americans" on TV at the bar. They had no clue we were in there because of my heritage, I fit right in.

Instead of becoming angry over the comment, I was actually very humored due to the true nature of their joking. Just kinda sucks being the butt of every countries jokes.

Fat, ugly, pill poppin', dumb, gas guzzling SUV's drivin' , live in excessively large homes, eat everything deep fried, fast food, gun happy, spend money on a bunch of MIC junk, always in a rush, wasteful, violent, self centered, ignorant, rude, spoiled, always broke, uneducated, oh... and proud.

Unfortunately, 90% of Americans have 3 or more of the above qualities, me being one of them.

The good news is that we are free to walk around in a haze of stupidity while consuming excessive amounts of unnecessary stuff.

Would I live anywhere else? I can think of a couple countries that I may want to move temporarily one day but for now, I am going to live the "American dream" while enjoying my guns and chocolate covered bacon.

I mean, what other country can you walk around in a semi conscious state of stuper, consuming everything in site and still able to maintain a comfortable lifestyle that billions of others around the world can only dream of.

All of this thanks to our forefathers who made this country great and today we are destroying all of their hard work.

Enjoy the party while it lasts. I'm done ranting.
