Topic: Norway is best place to live says UN


I told Redleg when I went to visit him that Norway would be my "happy ever after". Now it is confirmed by the UN. Not only for the reasons below, but the women are just rocking HOT!

Norway takes the number one spot in the annual United Nations human development index released Monday but China has made the biggest strides in improving the well-being of its citizens.

The index compiled by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) ranks 182 countries based on such criteria as life expectancy, literacy, school enrolment and gross domestic product (GDP) per capita.
Norway, Australia and Iceland took the first three spots while Niger ranks at the very bottom, just below Afghanistan.
China moved up seven places on the list to rank as the 92nd most developed country due to improvements in education as well as income levels and life expectancy.
Colombia and Peru rose five spaces to rank 77th and 78th while France -- which was not part of the top 10 last year -- returns to the upper echelons by moving up three places to number 8.
The UNDP said the index highlights the grave disparities between rich and poor countries.
A child born in Niger can expect to live to just over 50, which is 30 years less than a child born in Norway. For every dollar a person earns in Niger, 85 dollars are earned in Norway.
This year's index was based on data from 2007 and does not take into account the impact of the global economic crisis.
"Many countries have experienced setbacks over recent decades, in the face of economic downturns, conflict-related crises and the HIV and AIDS epidemic," said the UN development report's author Jeni Klugman.
"And this was even before the impact of the current global financial crisis was felt."
Afghanistan, which returns to the list for the first time since 1996, is the only Asian country among the bottom ten which also include Sierra Leone in the 180th spot, just below the Central African Republic.
The top ten countries listed on the index are: Norway, Australia, Iceland, Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden, France, Switzerland and Japan.
The United States ranks 13th, down one spot from last year.

But can you really trust the UN???

But what they don't mention is that our capital, Oslo, has been ranked as the most expensive city in the World, many years in a row now...

It was a good thing that you visited Norway during the summer, since in the winter all of the girls you see outside looks like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from October to May (because of all of the clothes they have to wear.. )

Congratulations Noruega!

The land of Vikings, lots of really tall and blond "Germanic" style people and for ages exporting very delicious bacalhau/saltyfish..sooo yumi!

The "thing" about Nordic countries, at least for tropical persons, is the very cold weather they have, to adapt to it etc...I have a Sweden friend not Norwegian, yet. But I think their languages sounds similiar and it is very interesting to listen to.

Danish, Swedish and Norwegian are very similar, and most of the time we can understand eachother without any big problems.

Do you find those 3 nations have the tallest people on earth? My Sweden friend at 6'4 is not the tallest but "medium"..lol.. among males in his imediate family. His sister is 6'1, which is very impressive height for males to have, imagine women.

Anyways..

About the language, "most of the time", I guess is like portuguese and spanish or even better similarities and less problems.

It is also an easy and inexpensive language to learn as you can pick it up from the Swedish Chef on Muppet Show DVDs, apparently everything ends in "Bork Bork Bork".
