If it were done *where* 'tis done...
Okay, bad attempt at a Shakespearean joke aside, stumbled across this and found it a rather interesting time killer:

If it were my home: compare any two countries in the world.

Not convinced about the class divide though. If communism (and 5 centuries of Ottoman oppression, which resulted in no aristocracy) have left us anything good, it's the lack of classes. Not like in a lot of other countries, anyway.

And of course you'd be relying on the governments that you're comparing to provide honest unbiased information.

"Nope, nope, we don't have those damned homosexuals in our country, so we don't have any AIDS."

Uh huh...... Sure. Dodgy

Yeah, Dom, I thought it was fun Yes (crooked government lies notwithstanding Facepalm )


Bucky - only because it got so bad at one point, we stopped reproducing! True story. (well, we did almost stop reproducing - Bulgaria has one of the lowest birth rates in the world. I'm a threatened species, guys, someone protect me Rolleyes )

Oaktree, I'm about a hundred percent more likely to be murdered in Brazil, apparently. I *am* a threatened species. Gasp

SA vs USA, if I lived in the USA I'd be 95.65% less likely to have AIDS Smile
I'd make 4.6 times more money, on average, and I'd be 2.4 times more likely to be in prison.

SA vs Zim, I'd be better off in Zim on almost all measures except I'd make 94.78% less money (Zim GDP per capita PPP is $600) and be 95% certain to be unemployed. Eish Facepalm

(The "you'll earn less money" does not take into consideration the fact that you'll probably spend less. Not sure about Brazil and Bulgaria though; salaries might be comparable, but basic stuff seems much more expensive here. How *do* they manage?)

Interesting infographic... Thanks Vera.

(Although I note that some of the stats for Aus are incorrect as of 2017.)

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

I love how the only thing for Vatican City is that I'd be more likely to be Catholic. Umm, site...I am? So would I be Pope Hulud I?

Need to think of a witty signature.
