All I'm asking here is, realisitically speaking, would you consider life in the States to be better or worse than here, from every perspective; social, economical, political, career-wise, weather-wise :p: everything, really.
Everything is better in the US:
Teeth
Education
People
Streets
Shopping
Fried Twinkies
Oreos
NFL
English
Spelling
Careers
Pay
Weather
Guns
Drugs
Boxing
Wrestling
Houses
People
Hollywood
Football
Chicago
Nukes
Marines
MOABS
Steath fighters
Obama
Harvard
Toilet paper
Chocolate

And we dont have Chavs.
We have Texans and Southerners instead.

the UK is great if your wealthy, otherwise you will be living in what looks like a third world country (and I'm not kidding). compared to the **** areas in the UK the worst areas in the US look fine! (i've been to both)

Our poor are poorer than yours.
Our destitute are more destitute than yours.
Our slums are slummier than yours.
We win again.

Seriously, unless you are wealthy or have a high paying job with full medical insurance, dont even think about living in the US. :o: :o: :o: :o: :o:


Edit:
Wealth:
Around $10 million US should be adequate, provided you dont plan to live in New York.

i'm American and live in London and used to live outside NYC. trust me, the crap holes i've seen in the UK trounce anything the US can serve up. i used to volunteer in Camden NJ which is the murder capital of the US and it still was a hell of allot nicer than some of the places I have seen in the UK.

But you can hit the beach and go to SeaWorld all the time!
Meh. I haven't been to SeaWorld in like 5 years and I've never really liked the beach. I'm more into mountains and stuff.

Gary, Indiana is the best !
The rat per resident population is marvellous.

Other really great slums with lots of rats and cockroaches include Irvington, Newark, Atlantic City, Wildwood, large parts of Miami.

Salubrious Harlem:

Well, I'm a British student on exchange at Berkeley, California.

I won't go too far into it, but sure, it's fun. It's the playground of the world if you're the outdoors type. But the people are ugly and I wouldn't want to live here.
Americans, to me, are a hit or a miss. A lot of American teens are asses (the ones I've been unfortunate enough to meet), i.e. 'f*** politics, they're all dicks', or the usual 'OH MY GODDDDDD I like LOVVEE YOU' types. There are some lovely ones, but yeah, looks wise and personality wise I'd say Europeans FTW.

Anyway, OP aye go for it if you wish to live there. Good luck with the whole money situation though given the US isn't doing so great at the moment.

As a Londoner I can safely say that this post is utter rubbish :rolleyes:

You're biased you fool :P

hahaha, of course you wouldn't feel like that if you're a londoner.
