There is nothing worse than a site where you fill out eight pages of info, then before they show you the results they want all of your contact info including mailing address and phone number.

I usually gave them my Hong Kong address.

I don't mind giving them (fake) address and phone number, but it's not clear that they're going to show you results of if you _have_ to give them an email address. I almost bailed at that point, but I happen to be looking for a "better" place to live, so even if I get some spam on a gmail account, I can live with it.

It's funny, I like a lot of places in Oregon, but I don't consider myself a "progressive" person (and answered certain questions accordingly) and I got no Oregon results. Lots in Washington and Alaska, including Medina (w/ an $840,000 average home price thanks to Bill Gates), though.

Any red state in the heartland of the USA is good enough for me or somewhere in the Bible Belt.

That's right, I understood. I wouldn't mind living in most places in the US. That was the point of my post.

Places I wouldn't want to live in:
Camden, NJ
Philadelphia, PA
Detroit, MI
St Louis, MO
Gary, IN
San Fransisco, CA (Although I would like to visit there)

I think most of us can sell ourselves any number of cities in the world--as long as it isn't some major dump. There's no city that's right for you, emigrating from people and places familiar to you means giving up something, and having to struggle extra hard to gain a foot-hold in a new place for the same grubs. So just make your decision, and work your ass off--stay away from bozos and you'll do fine.

Since the blue states are tossing money over to the red states hand over fist that's not a bad move. Of course your kids won't learn science or stuff like that.

Without going through the website, here's my list of cities I'd like to live in:

* Fukuoka
* Seoul
* Kyoto
* Leave Before it Makes You Hard(TM) New York City
* London
* Singapore
* Taipei
* Leave Before it Makes You Soft (TM) Honolulu

Well I've kind of lived in Seoul, Taipei and Singapore (if living means buying groceries rather than just living off restaurants and hotel food) and I could certainly reside in the last two but I think I'd go crazy living in Seoul.

Where I'm living now is fine, a bigger house would be better but otherwise I'm happy. Good alternatives would be somewhere deep in the South West, North Devon, somewhere on 17 Mile Drive on the Monterey Peninsula, Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Russian Hill SF ~ Nob Hill if I had the money, Quebec if my French was better.

Seoul is where most EFL teachers seem to have been at some time in their lives.

Few of them liked Seoul. Most quite liked Korea. Wonder what the problem with Seoul is.

The real problem of course is that the places you really want to live in are either too expensive, or don't have any work or both.

Now if the flat was thrown in for free then my lst would probably be:
Barcelona
Aswan
Kandy or Galle
Marrakesh
Lisbon
Damascus
Belle Isle
Cordoba

I'm sure if I travelled more there would be more cities on the list (maybe South American and Asian).

"Since the blue states are tossing money over to the red states hand over fist that's not a bad move. Of course your kids won't learn science or stuff like that."

As opposed to the kids from the blue states, who learn that heather has two daddy's or tommy has two mommie's, or that there is no such thing as right/wrong only what makes you feel comfortable and validated, or all cultures are equal except if you're a white-american you should be hating yourself for all of the oppresion your ancestors have caused to everyone around the world and all the major problems of minorites in the inner cities of America is the fault of a white person keeping them down (teen-pregnancy, gangs, drugs, crime etc), or that it is ok to have sex, outside of marriage and bear childer because the goverment will be there to give you public aid, or you should hate yourself for making money and not giving your "fair-share" to government so that it could solve the problems of the inner city that you have caused for working so hard in the first place.

I think I take my chance with my children learning creation-science.

What makes you think that hiding in a "red" state is gonna keep your kids from learning about my kids and their two daddies?

Sorry, but I find this amusing in the circumstances (from their website):

"We apologize for the inconvenience - we're moving!

We should be back up by 5:00 a.m. Mountain Time.

We hope you'll come back and check us out!

Sincerely,

Nothing, it was an absurd statement as equal to the one that you wouldn't learn science in a red state (from a previous poster). Whether you learn about two mommies/daddies has nothing to do perse with geography...

> wouldn't learn science in a red state

Creationsim and religious education are far more important.

> no such thing as right/wrong

We actually lean right and wrong. If we didn't i doubt our economies could be so productive.

Red states have higher divorce rates, more titty bars, higher wife abused. They had far more hangings of african americans. I very moral place.

> white-american you should be hating

You are confusing hare with redress.

> or that it is ok to have sex, outside of marriage

A guess all those unwedded mothers are all in the blue states? And by sex inside marriage you must include infidelity as being ok, or why all the divorces?

> hate yourself for making money

People in red states don't make money. And has far as i can see they want all the farm and oil subsidies they can get their hands on.

> I think I take my chance with my children
> learning creation-science.

That's why we need to split the states. You will end up even more backwards than you are and you'll drag the rest of us down with you simply because you have more states, not more people. When are you on your own it will be fun to see. Perhaps we can make a reality tv show out of it. Without the money from the blue states or the inhibition from the federal government and general media you will tank in a hear-beat. But at least you won't think you were descended from apes. And that's what counts.
