Comments on: Welcome to Rock Bottom… http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/11/30/welcome-to-rock-bottom/ News, but not the serious kind Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:56:44 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: mydogisblue http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/11/30/welcome-to-rock-bottom/comment-page-1/#comment-418120 Sun, 04 Dec 2011 21:51:32 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/?p=71759#comment-418120 America is still the best. In europe, everything is old, laws keep it that way, and the cost to survive is way too high for most. There’s a difference between being a good place to live and a good place to visit…

If you look at who conducted the survey and why, it’s about cities to which a company might send an employee. Not a lot of companies are sending their employees to Kandahar or Mogadishu, but it is possible that companies might send employees to Baghdad. The cities they chose to rank is a bit skewed for that reason.

Worse than Mogadishu? Really? These people’s credibility is shot.

Dublin made the list too – but speaking as someone who lives in Dublin…# 26 I think is a little high!

Glad to see Calgary and Montreal made the list! Sping, that Ottawa thing must be a typo!

Only you get off the metro and have to climb rocks instead of an escalator?

That’s ok, as I am wondering now if I really was born or just dropped off by aliens…

Having lived in Richardson for ten years, I speak with some knowledge. Then again, my man Lance Armstrong is originally from Plano, so that brings the place up a few notches.

If you want to come to a real happy US town, next door to Frisco is Plano, TX, ranked #10. (Sorry but Baltimore and DC were ranked 52 and 81 respectively.)
