Dave, have you taken a look at that list?

There's some true hellholes ranked above places like New Zealand... I think their methodology is questionable, no?

Cheers,

Yes I took a good look at the list & think it's way more accurate than the one the UN came up with.

In general I do hate lists, they're way too subjective, but thought that one put an interesting twist to the way they're normally compiled. Personally would switch El Salvador & CR around though. No way CR deserves #1. :evil:

I think ranking places like Bangladesh and Pakistan above New Zealand pretty much torpedoes their entire methodology...

That's your opinion.

I could care less. :shrug:

IMO CR should not be #1, Canada should be below Mongolia however I am not conceited enough to believe that the rest of the world is wrong just because they don't agree with me. :woot:

The people I met in Mongolia a couple years ago were a lot happier :D than my Canadian friends in Ontario :( last summer. Both the Mongolians & Canadians were mainly small business operators.

Can't help it if the truth doesn't match your assumptions. :shrug:
