Being Australian, I guess New Zealand is the only logical place to turn. It always seemed to me to be a better country than Aus anyway, so I would have no qualms about it.
Fuck NZ, I'd go to New Caledonia, no question. If I ever got sick of it there I could always go to Paris or something considering it's technically part of France.
I'm Dutch so that'd be a toss-up between the UK and Belgium, since I can't speak German for the life of me.
I'd probably pick Belgium, it's much more similar and probably has the better weather.
I'm torn between NZ and Timor,
NZ because us and the Kiwis are pretty much the same (as in, closer than the yanks and the Canadians) or
Timor because, well I just love the country and the people.
I live in England... so Scotland, that's pretty and if I spend enough time there I'm sure I'd learn to love the skirts.
As an Australian, I'd have to pick Germany if one were to torture logic enough; due to Pau Pa New Guinea being a former colony of Australia, which itself was a former colony of Germany... (Also by that logic if I were to stretch it far enough and not consider the Australia Act of 197/80 something I could also consider any country bordering France, since that was part of England...)
But why Germany? Because Norwegians sound funny, and I doubt I could torture logic enough to get me surrounded by Norwegians in Norweigh.
Wales I guess. I'm about 20 miles east of it anyway, not much would change.
Well given the choice between Mexico or Canada, I'd go up north. The only thing appealing about going to Mexico would be the warm weather since I really don't like cold weather. But all things considered, Canada is pretty much the same as America, just Canadian. And I know that doesn't make much sense, but at the same time maybe you'll see that it makes total sense. :3
That and there's a certain habit that's being gradually legalized across America but most states still consider it illegal, but in Canada they seem much more lenient about it. :3
That, and I know a lot of very cute gamer girls up in Canada and I've a number of friends up there too. All in all it'd really be as though I decided for myself that I wanted to move to Canada rather than being forced to as some type of punishment. Wouldn't be that bad at all.
So, Denmark doesn't want me anymore because I'm not giving in to the dictatorship of collectivism? Cool! Back to Germany it is!
(UK) my geography is quite poor so can I pick Hawaii?
Denmark, Finland or Norway... While it's expensive in norway, they're also filthy rich, so I'd pick them. Also since I'm Swedish, understanding them wouldn't be hard.
If you assume we get the ability to speak the language then I'd be off to Norway in the blink of an eye. Otherwise, Ireland.
England considering it is the only country I share a border with... Not that bad if I can get past the Torys and the subways... And Geordies... Ugh... I freaking hate Geordies... Well, people who act like Geordies, I'm sure you can be from Blackpool without being one but... Ugh...
NZ to the East, PNG & Timor to the North, huge expanse of ocean to the west and Antarctica to the south. I guess Antarctica...
NZ would be the way to go.
As an Israeli, I must say-
HAHAHAahaha. Good one. :P
Since its the same government, does that mean I'm not allowed to pick Scotland, England or Wales? If I could I'd pick Scotland but otherwise, I think my choices are the Republic of Ireland, France and Germany.
Probably the R.o.I. since I'm not too far away and also I don't speak German or French - I know I could learn one or the other but I'd rather not HAVE to.
Well....this isn't very difficult :)
I'm an American (Minnesota to be precise)
Mexico: Terribly poor country with a fairly corrupt government and a drug war that is killing thousands.
Canada: Just like America except a little bit more French and has Universal Health Care
Shit, I could hope into my car and be in Canada by the end of the day if I wanted to. See you in Canada eh.
Silly Canada joke time! "So I was looking through the history book and saw that it's supposed to be called CND. However, every time someone asked how to spell it, Canadians would say C eh N eh D eh! and the name stuck!
Minnesotan here to. My home town is separated from Canada by a river. Seeing as how similar the culture is, I'd choose Canada as well. I think I'd want to move out to Vancouver. I've heard it's pretty nice.
Czech republic? Meh
Austria? Yes please.
The choice is between Norway and Finland, so I'm not sure - on one hand, Norwegian is easier to learn, but on the other a lot of Finns already know Swedish, and Finland is actually in the EU while Norway is a bunch of whale-hunting, America-sympathizing pricks.
Eh, I guess I'll risk being on the Russian border and head over to Finland.
Well I don't exactly have much choice. I'm Scottish so I'm being forced down to...[dramatic pause] England.
I'm only kidding, I wouldn't mind England, the people I've meant whilst being down there seem like perfectly good people, and I can always have a laugh with the various Englanders in Brovengers chat and the like. I would need to import Irn Bru from Scotland though.
Irn Bru is available in England.
Oddly enough its illegal in the US.
OT: I pick Whales. Seems nicer than Scotland. Plus given my accent two minutes after entering Edinburgh I'd be a beat up pulp.
Oh I know England has Irn Bru, it's just that it doesn't taste as good =P (or at least that was my opinion the last time I bought it when I was down England way.
Being from Australia, I've got 3 overseas countries to pick from, I'd think that the closet would be Papau New Guinea, Indonesia and New Zealand. I'd definitely pick New Zealand from that, it's got some awesome stuff and it seems to be a lot safer than the other two countries. Also, I would be able to see where LotR was filmed, and that's awesome :D
So... Greenland, Faroe islands or Jan Mayen. I guess since Jan Mayen is a part of Norway and I'm planing on moving there anyways, I'd got here.
I may not be able to understand a damn word they say and it may be cold as feth but dammit .... they have whiskey.
And in the event that you don't drink whisky, they have irn-bru. They seriously love it up there.
OP: I'd have to move to Ireland. See if I can find my dad. As much of a stereotype that sounds like, I have no idea where the guy is.
That would be Alberta... our Texas. They vote conservative, they have a ton of oil, they wear freaking cowboy hats... yeah it IS weird.
Thats not wierd. Thats sounds perfect. *mounts horse* TO ALBERTA!!!*rides away*
Of course there's more hockey than football... but there is still football.
Not a big sports guy. Not a big deal.
Of course I am curious what about our politics YOU think is so insane. I mean there's lots to choose from, just wondering what you'd picked up on down south.
Well, just speaking for my area (Kansas), Canada is the punchline to jokes and little else. But to those I hear politics from, they say it is alot like Europe (a major insult around here, just like being called socialist). While that results in SOME ways that I can agree with (like legal gay marriage), it results in others I am not so fond of (legal abortions [up to a point], socialized medicine, heavy firearms restrictions). I guess I just need to know afew things:
1) Can I have a M1897 Winchester "Trenchgun" (pump shotgun with a bayonet lug) and a Colt .45 Pistol and can I use them for self defense?
2) How is Canadas record in Interventionalism (stepping in and stopping conflict in other countries)?
3) How often is your conservative party elected?
4) Is Patriotism viewed in a negative light there?
5) How popular is the idea of a Flat Tax?
6) Is open displays of faith frowned upon?
7) How popular is country music up there?
well I am Swedish so Finland obviously, where else would I go? Norway? if I did that then id probably end up laughing at the way they speak to much, kinda like I do whenever I see hear from skåne.
Canadian here... I guess I'd have to leave for the states.... I guess Washington... but I really dont want to hahha
Um, does the Channel count as a border? Because England seems to be the best choice for me, as I don't speak German, Spanish or Italian, and the Swiss and Belgians scare me. (I'm French)
I suppose I would go to Greenland, as there is no way I would ever live permenantly in the States. Sooner go straight down to Mexico.
Yes, I am Canadian.
Doesnt the USA also border Greenland and Russia through Alaska?
Anyhow, me as Dutchy will prolly move to belgium then. Cheaper education, awesome fries and chocolate, and most importantly: the same language.
I live in Canada! I'd have to move to the US! I don't like the US! It's going down the toilet even faster than Canada!
...Eh, I'd probably go to california then...Seems to be one of the more reasonable places there.
I currently reside on an island. Your move.
Uh... do I live in 'England' or 'the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland'?
If the former, we're next to Wales and Scotland... so... I'd commit suicide?! Beastly places, both of them... *arrogant sniff* Beastly...(!)
If the latter, we're next to Ireland only... apart from the economic situation, it wouldn't be bad.
However, if they're allowed to count, we've also got Denmark (Faroes to the north) as a neighbour, though I guess the Low Countries are closer. *shrug*
And of course... France, but come on... I'm British... ¬_¬
Hebrides, old boy. That's where it's at.
For all those dutch no braining to belgium I think I would actually go with Germany. They have their shit sorted out pretty well and German isn't that difficult to learn for us. They throw great parties and have a good football team. And in general I think I would get along with the germans best, of pretty much any country in the world.
And they pay their engineers very well, which is a bonus.
I live in the US so I guess my options are limited to Mexico and Canada. It's a decision I've have to reflect upon for many, many~CANADA! I'm going to Canada, more than likely British Columbia. Not that I know anyone there but I've heard nothing but good things.
