Aside from the current political atmosphere in the US, I would say USA. To be fair, the US is such a huge country that states are bigger than the UK. Seattle isn't the same as Miami florida (which I think is horrible in places) and New York City isn't San Diego. You have East Coast vs West Coast and the South vs mid-west and the northeast etc...

The US clearly has its issues but you can take your life and do with your life whatever you want. If money is your thing, you can pursue that endeavor and if you apply yourself, you will most likely be successful.

Yes you can travel in Europe but its not like every European country is so completely different that there is a lot of contrast between immediately neighboring countries. I have been to Bulgaria accross to UK and just about everything in between. There is something unique about the USA (set aside the current political atmosphere).

There's a fuck of a lot more in common between a Floridian and a Washingtonian than there is between a Scotsman and a Bulgarian.

:lol: Yeah I am always ripping the US...apart from choosing to marry an American, going over there every year, having tons of American friends...getting married there later this year, having a green card application close to completion and other such trivial things...I am a full on hater of the US. :rolleyes

WTF ???

Britain has absolutely shit the bed in the last 15 years. Absolute nosedive culturally and politically. Blair should've hanged, damage he caused. Instead he's spent the last 10 years getting weighed off by a succession of globalist and high finance funding groups. Despicable.

Never been to USA, but they have constitutional freedoms that we are bereft of. But then their judicial system scares the shit out of me. I'd love to visit, and am fucking close here, keep thinking to check out Texas, but i dunno, just end up doing a fuck load of dough that would last about 3 times the time here or elsewhere close.

I'm in California at the end of the month and that's the one thing that is annoying me in advance. I'm going to have to do a bit of prep for what the tipping protocol is for various scenarios. I dislike breaking courteous social conventions so I'm not keen on having people looking at me like a rubbed my cock against a child because I forgot to give $2 to some random employee.

Also can't expense it.
Wait staff in restaurants 20% of the bill. Valet parking throw them a five. Same with a bell hop. Curbside checkin at an airport. I throw them a 10. That's all you generally have to tip
