    Cheap real estate is nonexistent in any major metropolitan area in the US. I'm in DC and this is among the cheapest places you can find without moving into an area that has yet to be gentrified.

    I think I'd run my dick through a meat grinder and suck a fart out of Amy Schumer's ******* before I lived in Europe.
    France is one of the GOAT standards of living.

    I didnt say drug addiction and bums were exclusive to america, I just said that they have a massive problem with it - substantially higher per capita than other countries.

    Doesnt america also suck if youre black or latino too. Like 1/3 black americans have been in the prison system and they basically use that as a way to get cheap/free labour.

    Ive been to 50+ countries and ive NEVER seen homeless problems as bad as america (Las vegas, California, Florida, NY in particular)

    Median house price in DC is $640K. idk if you guys get your cheeks clapped with Home Owners Association fees like we do, but that's another 500-600 per month which adds another 100K+, making the DC area comparable to Sydney. It'll only intensify too as DC is still undergoing gentrification. There are other major metropolitan areas of the country that are even more expensive. The US isn't cheap unless you're moving to bum fook Midwest and wishing upon a lucky star for work.

    I've run the numbers in the past. If you treat Europe as one country and include the eastern block nations that are chitholes or border them... those pretty cherry picked numbers of Europe don't look so good any more. That also applies to the healthcare system nonsense too.

    £600,000? Nah mate.

    For a properly decent house in London you'll be paying £1M these days minimum, unless you live in a chit borough like Lewisham.

    Combine that with the fact people in the UK make way less than the US it's a total scam. I am jelly of the US's high salaries and cheaper houses, plus their gyms are massive compared to ours. Sucks tbh.

    I'm always amazed at the space. Back and front gardens, driveways, garages you can actually fit a car in, ability to park on the road outside your house.

    Don’t get the point of this thread, each country has super high housing costs in the most desirable places where the higher salaries exists, it’s all relative, probably less than 1% of Texans make over 150k. Crime in suburbia is low, inner city crime and border towns jacks the numbers up quite a bit.

    Try again, Sweetie. You’re 13x more likely to get shot to death in the United States than Australia.
    You misunderstood them. I believe they were saying you are less likely to get shot in Texas (guns everywhere) than in Chicago where having a gun is just about impossible yet all the criminals seem to have them. Nobody thinks you are more likely to get shot in Aus than USA.

    If you remove New Orleans, LA, St Louis, and Chicago, the USA becomes incredibly safe from gun violence though. Probably still more than most of the civilized world. A lot gun ownership is cultural here.

    If you don't count suicides or inter-gang violence then I believe the US is on par with most everywhere else, and if you're looking for a real comparison safety wise then I think those are the numbers you'd want to look at.

    Thread about American housing prices becomes a gun violence thread. Bet if you foreigners came to visit and shot some watermelons out back with a 12 ga you'd try like fuk to smuggle some guns back home.

    ITT people compare most famous and dense Australian city home ownership cost vs suburban Texas home ownership cost.

    Homes in NYC average 760k+, homes in San Fran 1.3+ million and silicon valley is 1.6+ million.

    Wood frame houses can still last 200+ years. You can get iron framing and concrete housing built if you want to. The question just becomes is the extra expense worth it. Most people aren't willing to drop an extra 100K for a really strong azz house.

    Ive been to 50+ countries and ive NEVER seen homeless problems as bad as america (Las vegas, California, Florida, NY in particular)
    1. People in America choose to be drug addicts/alcoholics/homeless. There are tons of program to help them get on their feet and plenty of shelters, they choose not to live in them. Its really just a cultural problem where people choose to use drugs/alcohol and at that point they are cool just living on the streets instead of accepting rules/responsibilities.

    2. Its not like cops go around rounding up of blacks and Latino's to put in prison. Certain groups commit more crime then others. I assure you no police officer is like "Lets cut this guy a break for committing crimes cause he's white." And most prisoners aren't doing any sort of labor. The one's that are, are doing in voluntarily because they get paid (albeit very low pay).
