      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Not number 1, but 43

Recommended Posts

US is ranked now #43 in the world, great job conservatives!

"A closer look at the trends shows Canada actually did better than last year, but other countries such as Japan and Australia improved at a greater rate.

 

When the numbers are adjusted for gender inequality, Canada slumps to 18th place. The United States fares even worse -- sinking from third to 42nd place."

Great Job!

Speaking as a politically apathetic, non-partisan person who doesn't watch the news in any capacity or care what's going on in the world...

 

What's the relevancy?

 

What does it matter what position we are among all the other fat, rich, safe, liberal, comfortable countries in the world? Our most impoverished are living the lap of luxury compared 90% of the non-west.

 

We aren't the best at being privileged, spoiled, lazy, non-producing exploiters... OH NOEZ

Actually if you bothered to look up the source, countries like India, China, Brazil, Indonesia among many made a huge progress in their development. I would not consider India as fat and rich, but they are making headway, while US seems like is going backwards. I also know this is a complex issue, and social aspect (fat and lazy) plays a huge role. But the economic policies started already under Reagan are also partially to blame.

Wait if we send all our jobs to China and India they will grow faster than we do?

 

Rocket science. Shit.

 

But look at how the NASA rover kicked Russian and Chinese ass.

Russia's put a couple of toys on the moon (and a handful on Venus), n thas coo.

 

We put 3 cars there and played round of lunar golf, blew the shit out of a comet, attacked Jupiter, landed on an asteroid with no landing gear, drove the Euros to Titan, made Mercury our hawt little bitch, and launched 5 starships.

 

Oh, and Mars? We own it.

Yakoff Smirnoff's joke about the Russian/Soviet Space program:

 

Concerned that they were falling behind, Russians announce, "We will land on the Sun!". When asked if that might might not be too hot, Russian spokesman says, "Do you think we are stupid? We will land at night!"
