Finns most honest...
« on: September 26, 2013, 01:41:57 PM »
Worlds least honest cities: http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/24/travel/least-honest-cities/

Lol Michal care to comment on Poland's rank?

Spain and Portugal the lowest is no surprise. They have no money as it is.

And besides I don't think any of this has anything to do with honesty.

And of course people from NY are nice...

Wow!  Minsk and Homyel don't even rate??  What's up with that?

That's one of the few positive sides of living in Finland.

"And the city with the lowest rate of wallet return? Lisbon, Portugal. Just one of the 12 wallets was returned, by a couple visiting from the Netherlands."

Nice.

Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life Lyrics

Some things in life are bad they can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewin' on life's gristle, don't grumble give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the light side of life


If life seems jolly rotten there's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing

And always look on the bright side of life
Come on, always look on the bright side of life


For life is quite absurd and death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow
Forget about your sin, give the audience a grin
Enjoy it it's your last chance anyhow

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath


Life's a piece of shit when you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true
You'll see it's all a show keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the right side of life
Come on Brian, cheer up

Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life
Worse things happen at sea you know

Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the bright side of life

...

Yeah, but do they have reindeer and a midnight sun?

I didn't expect New York to return as much as 8 out of 12. :police:  I learn something new everyday.

Imagine how much better they'd do if they had reindeer!
