Thread: One thing that makes people in communist countries more fun and friendly

    I make a pretty nice living and am in the process of buying a house. On a recent drunken night out I had my wife's "friend" tell me that she thought I should be doing better financially given my background. I was like WTF? Now I suppose I should tell you that this girl is 33 and single and her "daddy" (her father) gives her like $400 a month to buy clothes and such so that she can "look cute."

    That's NYC for you my friends.

    The point is beautiful girls in communist societies look for good things in the person himself. In capitalist societies they look for his wallet as the main quality. This is in general so anywhere in America. This is how their parents raise them and this is what their friends idolize. There are many beautiful girls in NYC that come from the South and from MidWest. Why are they here?

    FWIW, I don't blame the women. Things in capitalist societies cost money. Things that are necessities for life. Things like housing, energy, food, health care, daycare for children, children's education and so on.

    In communist societies all these things are either free or cost minimally so a family can really get all the necessities by having any decent job.

    Sounds like you need to move to the midwest Big or at least try a small city or town someplace to meet more of the kinds of people you are looking for.

    In a large city the simple costs to live there can make many people very money focused. When the costs to live day by day are cheaper it is much easier to focus on the other things in life besides money.

    As to why midwest people would move to NYC and act money hungry- they may have to just to get by, or that may be what drives their idea of success. I can assure you that is not a universal view across the nation though.

    Ok so then we can agree that in capitalist societies things are like that in large cities at least. In communist societies you don?t need a lot of money to live in large cities. I come from Leningrad, Russia, second largest city after Moscow. My grandmother lived in the heart of the city while getting a pension.

    NYC seems to effect people as well. Often their attitude towards life changes. My brother lives there and without trying to sound too superior I think his morals have been greatly effected.

    The NY attitude seems to be if you can get away with it, then it is OK.
    At my last company the person who dealt with defective product returns said he always honored product returns without a question unless they were from NYC. He said a large portion of returns from NYC were fraudulent.

    I have girl friends who will buy clothes at department stores, wear them out on a weekend, and then return them the following week. Nice.

    I was stationed in California while I was in the military.

    I had no desire to live there. It seemed as the majority of the people there placed too much value on money and status/fame. People seemed so shallow. It was all about what can you do for them, are you important enough to be around...

    That happened for me in some large cities though. I wonder if it would have been the same in some of the small towns there.

    My personaly opinion are japanese and german cars are of both very high qaulity.... right now i own a german car next time i think i might get a japanese one.... namely the honda accord. I always buy on spec.

    Big is making a mistake with girls. A beautiful girl is a nice thing but everyone knows some girls are for fun and some for keeps. Its simple, beautiful women see themselves as a commodity bought and sold, they will try and get with a rich man because they offer the good looks and the pretty girl on the arm look and he gives her money to waste on crap. The best idea is to get a woman who is good looking but not stunning this way she will make a good wife unless she is a feminist.
    Big you are too hung up on beautiful women and everyone knows a rich man can easily get a beautiful Russian girl so....
