No.....you thought wrong! America is a very poor country. "Third World" even. I just had to trade a guy two chickens (and they were my biggest prize roosters) for a 5-pack of ostomy barriers to get me thru next week. Seems ducks just aren't worth as much these days.....go figure. But hey, those barriers actually look new, even though the packages were opened.....but here in this crappy country we're just glad to get any supplies we can. So yeah, it's pretty bad here. We're just really good at putting on a show, pretending it's the greatest country on the planet,.........but I'm sure we're not fooling the smart folks out there like you!
It is definitely better where you live, hands down.........don't give it a second thought. So please do yourself (and us) a favor and stay right there, in God's paradise of Vegimite sandwiches and kangaroos, and be thankful for what you've got. We won't be insulted.....I promise.
