^ I don't know what you base that opinion on, Goofle, but it can't be on the statistics I've just gleaned from Wikipedia:-

Quote:
United Nations figures for homicide rates (2013) per 100, 000 people:-
USA : 3.9
UK : 0.9

Incarceration rates per 100,000 people (2016):-
USA : 693
UK : 122

Life expectancy - male/female figures averaged out (2015) :-
USA : 69.1
UK : 71.4

Obesity rates - male/female figures averaged out (2007/8):-
USA : 34.5 % of total poulation
UK : 23 % of ditto
Yes, the USA invented jazz and Bob Dylan, and they put a man on the moon, but that shouldn't cloud our judgement. Also, let's not forget that they still owe us the tax on all that tea they threw into Boston Harbour!

How about the "Holy sh*t I live in America" rate?

But I'm happy to concede that I kinda overlooked stuff like that when making my original post. But there's obviously individual accountability that comes with those stats.

Goof getting owned by Lisna is such a nice thing to see.

Owned by myself more than anything. Nothing Lisna said should change anybody's mind considering they are pretty much entirely a result of personal choice.

I was about to give him credit too

he was only wrong because he said "by any metric"

but the personal choice statement is daft on so many levels

Life expectancy is a personal choice? Do you realize how ****ing insensitive that is?

It's so insane I couldn't get what he was saying.

Being murdered is a personal choice? Trump might even have trouble selling that to his base. Just kidding.
