In select few northeastern states, you can be an Emergency Medical Technician at 16. I have the lives of others put in my hands every day. I have to make quick decisions that can make the difference between life and death.

But I can't vote, or drive a car with someone else my age in it.

Then again, I can have sex with 16 and 17 year olds.

This is a complicated place.

I went to China last summer and there was no legal age for drinking or smoking?

And that is true about them loving Westerners, I had about 5 people a day asking to take photos with me. I met a black guy who lived in Hangzhou and he was like a celebrity there.

How do they act if you're dressed in like, M65 jacket, jeans, Megadeth shirt and red converse? Do they think you're some homeless guy, ultra-mega-heavy guitarist, or like every normal person?

Your reality or the reality of your city isn't the reality of the whole China. Of course, if you go to major cities, things will be nice. Still, a big part of China's people still works the hell out to make the equivalent of U$100 by the end of the month.

And, well.. if you can't browse around the internet freely, then there is Repression. If you or the Press can't talk about the government, there is not Freedom of Speech.

Oh, by the way, you should really search on YouTube about "China's Ghost Cities". There ARE, in fact, many great cities with nice infra-structure. However, people just can't afford to live in them.

Just to point out, there's repression and lack of freedom of speech in every single country. Every last one. If there are laws, there is repression. And if you think you can go up to your leader and tell them they're a cunt, then you're very much mistaken.
And with China, they're actually very public about it. Their official website says that they consider themselves mostly a third world country.
But yes, I do get what you're saying, I'm just pointing out little details. As someone who isn't a fan of America, I'm still able to admit it's much more liberal than most of the world.

Yeah, obviously, I know, I won't go to the president of my country and tell her I think she's a total bag of crap and get away with it.

I live in Brazil, in the capital city. It's called "Brasília". Just so you can see how this sucks, something like, 10 months ago, a driver accidentally hit his car on our "White House" and now he's like ****** up for the rest of his life.

Well, people can live in an apartment next to the Central Park in Manhattan or in a mansion in Beverly Hills and be just as careless too, and also say "these just aren't my problems".

It doesn't affect you directly, so it doesn't matter?  
  
  
Alrighty then.

Have fun with your freedom of speech and corruption free government that doesn't oppress and censor opposition. (In case you can't tell, I'm being sarcastic)

yea.. like America isn't corrupt....

No country in the world is free from Corruption. Still, USA is one of the less corrupt ones.

Check out the "Corruption Perceptions Index", made by the NGO called "Transparency International" or something like that.

If you think that, you don't even know what " ****** up" means.
User avatar #195 to #186 - vserras (12/06/2011) [-]
No, America is not one of the must ****** up and corrupt countries in the world.

Yeah, ****** little towns in the middle of nowhere exist all over the world and they are just crappy places full of rednecks anywhere in the world too. Their local government tends to be more corrupt and less efficient since it's a less important city and economy and people are rednecks so they don't care too.

They say that asians are historically and culturally more careful and respectful with each other.

But I know what you're talking about. You will be a very happy person if you get to live in a small, extremely developed country like Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Iceland, Finland, Denmark, Belgium, Netherland, etc.

well I'm Swedish, but I live in England. Yeah western democracy's are pretty fubar, but it ain't nothing compared what goes on in China, sure the cities seem nice, but try read some of Ai Wei-Wei's (the Chinese artist) articles and blogs about the social situation in China, and then have a look at Chinese mining, and air pollution levels, that is some unparalleled environmental destruction right there. Yeah America and Europe are far from perfect, but I rather live their than China any day.
