    Just the fact that you can own a ton of land here for cheap, and tell everyone else to give off, is worth it alone. Imagine living in Europe or Asia where everyone is living in shoebox apartments. Fricking GRIM.

      Actually quality of life depends mostly on good third places to hang out where you can mix with the public, the neighborhood and friends and American urban design and planning lacks that except for rare exceptions.

      The first place is where you live, the second place is where you work. Your third place is most often a public place where you can hangout. There are not that many parks or squares in the USA where you can socialize.

        Why is it so hard for people to understand different lifestyles?
        People living in American suburbs don't lack relationships. They have friends, relatives and social gatherings. Some are religious, some are into sports, some orient around activities for children.
        There's just not a lot of single mingles. It's a bad place to find a mate.

      True, but much like countries like Canada, Russia and Australia something like 80% of the landscape is either barren wasteland, cornrows, or infested with some type of Black personfly. Americans do have it pretty good when it comes to nature but the downside is that you get less desirable minorities who also take advantage of said freedoms, such as gun ownership and freedom of association to act like gangbangers like their wop predecessors.

    Unbeatable purchasing power (t. Brit europoor). I impulsively bought cheap flights to the US in May for 10 days and I'm probably not even going to go because of how much it will cost and I think I would rather just cut my losses at this point. What 10 days in the US would cost is 2 months in Asia

      There's lots of places in the US that you can get by, not in a hostel or wienerroach invested crack den, for a hundred dollars a day.

        The only way you are doing $100 a day in the USA is if you go with at least one other person, stay in hostels or stay at friends/relatives. You will almost never find a hotel for under a $100 a day in most locales worth visiting. Plus you need to eat. Just to eat out 3 times and stay at a hotel you will need $200 a day.

        People die, not everyone here is posting as an 18 year old, some families are better left due to toxicity.

        I basically state/don't have any connections as my mom is a psychotic hoarder who can't be trusted and my sister is a raging alcoholic who will try to use anyone for money. I had to move out at 18 for my own health reasons as I was constantly surrounded by black mold and often just slept in my shitty car I bought from working a cashier job. It's great if you could live with your parents longer and save money or have more opportunities to fall back on but not everyone has that option.

            No I don't. If you need to laugh at people for being pathetic that means that you acknowledge that there is a hierarchy and there is inevitably someone above you. You can rationalise this by saying that you aren't at the bottom, but let's face it you are very, very far from the top.

            It's okay though, we all have bad moments. None of these take away the positive of a human existing. You too have some positivity in you.

          I'm 27. Have you ever contacted your father? (Why are there never any dads in these situations) what about your grandparents or extended family? Maybe the reason why you have no connections is you never tried to reach out, you'd be surprised how much help you can get. A lot of grandparents are lonely and will let you live with them just to have company. You could try to help your sister but never give her money.

            Are you old enough to post here? Unless your mom had you at 16, by the time you're old enough to travel on your own funds, your grandparents would probably be at the end of their life.

            It's great if you have a family to call back on but thinking everyone grew up in the "American dream" style of an up bringing is just so short sighted.

              Yea I assumed he left or was blocked out from seeing his family by a vengeful wife and the feminist court systems because that's what usually happens in cases like these.
              had me in their mid 30's so grandparents were dead/dying by the time I was out of HS
              I didn't even know we had the technology to do that back then, parents had me in their early 20s.
              >>by the time you're old enough to travel on your own funds, your grandparents would probably be at the end of their life
              Do you live in a nation with low life expectancy? My grandma is in her 70s and doing fine, she did have children early as was the custom back then.
              >>grew up in the "American dream" style of an up bringing is just so short sighted
              "The American dream" upbringing doesn't exist. There's mental illness and addiction in my family too just as there is in almost all of them. My youngest sister used to be a lot like yours, drinking, smoking weed, staying out late and acting like a c**t as a teen. Just being there for her but also taking no shit helps a lot.

            Not this guy but my situation is somewhat similar. Parents had me in their mid 30s. My mom died of cancer. I have minimal contact with my dad (no contempt between us). I have some brothers but they are all redditors that decided to cut off contact with me, my dad, and the rest of the family. I still send them gifts and such but they always ignore it. They're the super political types who unironically support socialism and frick cars. While I do my best to avoid politics with them, there have been a couple times where attempting to introduce nuance has lead to them entering a frenzied rage. I assume that's why they went no contact. At least I have a loving gf I can one day start a family with though.

              As funny it is to imagine that these types of people are real, I highly doubt that's why they went no contact with you. It's something personal and they're just using politics as an excuse. Maybe something about your mom's death?

    Crackheads everywhere with some of the dudes literally just lying on the street, every worthwhile sight is locked behind paywalls, and no matter what city I visit I feel like its the same fricking place - Big American cities aren't cities, they are glorified shopping malls, made up of the same copy-pasted Starbucks, Mcdonalds and Cul-de-sacs filled with cheaply built overpriced housing everywhere

    Don't get me wrong - I understand I saw a very small part of a huge country and there is some staggeringly beautiful nature there - I visited the Grand Canyon via helicopter and it was one of the most amazing sights I've seen in my life - but I couldn't shake the feeling that this entire country was out to nickel and dime me. Same as everywhere, I suppose, but America does not even ease into what a commercial hellscape it is. The rich parts are prisitine, well-maintained and gated-off communities, and then you go a block over and its like you walked into the Warsaw ghetto. Its almost fascinating in how grotesque the difference between poor and rich are in this country.

      Growing up in the US without wealth or family connections as the average white guy is so dismal that it’s finally starting to hurt the fed’s power.

    Me too, anon. Traveling and living abroad made me appreciate the US a lot more. These are my 10 favorite things about the US.
    >things generally work and are repaired if they don't
    Buildings are built to code, utilities don't often have outages, commercial facilities are well maintained and clean, the water is safe to drink. This isn't an issue in rich european countries but they have their own issues. This is getting worse though with the amount of diversity hiring going on.
    >Places where you live are meant for living and aren't where other people go to work
    Zoning means there isn't a noisy metal fabrication shop or a Jollibee or a gas station next to your apartment or house. This is an issue that affects a lot of 1st and 3rd world countries outside the US.
    >corruption is low
    While there are a few counterexamples, you won't be shaken down for a bribe while going about your lawful business.
    >Crab in bucket mentality is rare.
    Americans are generally happy to see others succeed. Your neighbors will be happy to see your new Mercedes Benz and think it makes them more classy to live near a wealthy individual. Europe is surprisingly bad for this, there, people seethe when anyone does better than them. In the US you can enjoy your wealth.
    >On that note, luxuries are relatively affordable
    In the US it's not that hard to own things like boats, ATVs, nice clothings, or an expensive car if you have a decent job but nothing Scrooge Moneybags status. This blows euros minds, that someone who is a tradie can just go buy a new speedboat and pickup truck or a software coder can buy a new S-class. Average Americans have nice things compared to what you find in the rest of the world.

      Your neighbors usually won't bother you with religious or political solicitation, bullshit about your carbon footprint, or anything else, and won't keep tabs on your activities or personal life just because.
      >Your parents and family don't define you.
      You aren't expected to practice the same career as your parents and Americans are not very conscious of your upbringing. Your current situation is what matters to them.
      >You are by and large free to do what you want.
      The US had no crazy lockdowns, your speech isn't policed by the government, and you have 2nd Amendment rights. The ideas of self-defense and personal freedom are accepted by society in general.
      >There really is a wide variety of food available.
      Despite all the fast food and AYCE buffet slop, you can get largely accurate representations of cuisine from all over the world. You can find authentic mexican food and authentic vietnamese food in most medium size cities in the US. This isn't the case even in places like Paris, which may have one or the other.
      >the natural world really is not only unspoiled it's accessible
      Not only is there vast amounts of natural land to enjoy, you're largely left alone while out there. There aren't hawkers trying to sell you things at national parks. You don't need a guide. There isn't a beer hall on the tops of mountains. People generally respect nature and leaving trash and such is frowned on.

    Travelling to the US made me realize it is part third world. Also some parts are ridiculously wealthy. Also that they have planes with advertisements that you should check hospital tarifs before going for treatment (saw that in cape cod) made me realize there needs to be a level of regulation of health care for the common interest of society.

    Also Americans can be so incredibly friendly. American architecture is not for me though, the car oriented culture is not really my cup of tea. Food is actually quite good in my opinion just don't expect anything formal or sophisticated.

            I'm back and forth about it. In many ways, I would love to live in some quiet part of MA and just buy all my shit from Wal-Mart, but then I remember just how many problems there are in the US. My own country isn't amazing either and is nowhere near as beautiful looking, but it's easier to live in than the US.

            It could never live up to my fantasies or dreams though, I know movies are bullshit and what I loved about 90s America is long gone now.

              I don't know where you're from, but the problems are highly concentrated and easily avoided.

              I will give SighSee being right about one thing though. The women have absolutely gone downhill. Women used to just want to date a normal friendly guy but now simp for brown and black drug dealers, and are mostly fat and have trashy tattoos. Men have improved in the last 20 years but women have become worse.

      There are no conservative big cities. Houston for example is an island of muh gibs and wacko socialist politics in a deep red state. There are conservative smaller cities and towns though like Boise or Ashland though.

      One reason people appreciate their home country (especially the US) when they grow up is they stop caring so much about novel architecture and experiences and appreciate conveniences and natural beauty that does not need to be novel or exotic. Most people outgrow their wanderlust phase and decide to settle and start a family. At that point they realize that despite relentless anti-suburb propaganda, quiet low-density residential zones are a really great place to establish a home and raise children. They're (mostly) done adventuring and want to be master of their own house.

                I think it's more about the fact that there is something distasteful and fragile about relying on a car for your entire life.
                there are downsides to being truly dependent on a system for your lifestyle to continue.
                if you live in a floodplain and the dyke breaks, that sucks
                if you live in iceland and your furnace breaks, that sucks
                if you live paycheck to paycheck and lose your job, that sucks
                similarly, if you live somewhere where a car is literally necessary for basic tasks, and the car breaks/becomes expensive/becomes regulated/whatever, that sucks

                just like how I'd prefer to have working legs than use a wheelchair, I'd prefer to be able to live life without being inescapably tied to 4 prosthetic wheels.

                Lugging groceries 10 blocks to your apartment and having to make 3 trips per week because you don't have a car. Paying premium for everything plus not having room to store bulk groceries in your shoebox apartment anyway. Sure it's not that bad if you're a single yuppie and eating out half the time anyway. But if you're feeding a family of 5 it gets old real quick.

                I'm just saying that it's a little sad and I think it's bad for your mental health to not be able to walk around your neighborhood. I'm not some mister Rogers type; "walking around the neighborhood" is not some obsession of mine, but I think that getting into a carpod to go basically anywhere gives you like a dissociative disorder or something. It has for me. I barely feel like I live "anywhere".

          This thread is filled with glowies. I hate suburbs so much they are horrible places to live combining both the worst of city and rural. The children will grow up under house arrest until they are 16, which is why most of the young population is a bunch of morons mind controlled by their fricking phones. Suburbs only exists for the vanity of the parents owning the home, they want to pretend they're rich with a big cardboard box, surrounded by NPC neighbours and sociopaths. Children have no freedom anymore since they are always being monitored by their karen mothers at all times. Why would you raise children in some prison environment?

          Yeah if you are young and single and looking for adventure. Or a terminal manchild.
          Parking lots are ugly but convenient. But that's not what makes suburbs great. Suburbs are great to live in because they are quiet and roomy. Big houses and yards and just the right number of neighbors so that you aren't totally alone and isolated but you aren't getting in each other's way either. You're close to city amenities if you need them but can easily drive into the countryside any time you want.

              It's that way to make room for the lawns and bigger houses. Small shops and businesses within these neighborhoods wouldn't have a large enough walking catchment to survive-- so they need parking and would want marketing signs and billboards and so on to attract passing drivers from the main road a mile over which would all annoy residents. So there's incentives to group all the commercial stuff together and commit to a large car-oriented catchment.
              In a denser city where people walk and bike you can get a lot of business from the 10k-20k people living within a mile or so. But none of those people have big houses or lawns or back yard BBQs, etc.

          Depends on the suburb. I rarely drive- there’s a lake, river, hills, forests, shopping center, restaurants, doctor, gym etc all within walking distance. It’s a middle income area 30 mins from the city center and I like it. Suburbs with nothing in them +30 mins away from anything are suicide fuel

It doesn't change the poisonous food, the fricked up politics, the culture that doesn't value friends or family. Fact is 90% of the USA is culturally sick, and it's a country on the decline because of this cultural illness.

    In what way is life in America superior to life in Malaysia? Here there is modern infrastructure, low poverty, little crime. It never gets cold...seriously, frick winter. Nature here is so beautiful, both the manicured parks and urban forest reserves. Lack of israeli financial control mean that food and lodging remain amazingly affordable despite the high standard of living. Easily 75-80% cheaper than America, and this in Kuala Lumpur, a city where every third car is a Mercedes or BMW. People here in KL tell me that the inflation israelite never arrived here, even as prices in America rise unceasingly. Everyone openly stands with Palestine. Malaysians even in the big city are easy to approach and talk to, very welcoming to foreigners as well. They seem very honest as well. Why should I return to America to be a paypig for israelites?

      I like Malaysia a lot but don't delude yourself into believing it's some perfect wonderland. If you think america puts Black folk and trannies and women on a pedestal, you need to look at your own country. The entire law system there is built around supporting the lowest of the low IQ bumis. The high IQ Chinese who built your country are being discriminated against far worse then white people in the west. If you are talking about just living there as a rich single man though, yea sure Malaysia is great. The second you integrate into the society and rely on the government systems, you see how moronic it is compared to america.

        And suburbs provide defensive architecture against a specific and common pattern of urban mugging: loitering around building entrances and "aw geez, we were just about to go to the corner store" when questioned. Mandatory setbacks and fences, alongside no stores defend against the above tactic. This distinguishes post-60s developments from the streetcar suburbs you'll find in places like New Orleans which defended themselves with sunset laws and restrictive covenants.
