Re: My Favourite Shitholes: What makes a country "great"?

I don't know nothing about no trains in Florida or anywhere else.  I have never ridden on a train in the US.  If by infrastructure you mean "trains", you may be right.  I was thinking roads, airports, electrical grid, water, parks, etc and many places in America easily score a 10 in those areas.  Others, not so much.

The electrical grid? No perfect 10 there!

No, it shines fine.  I am not some American rube. I have visited 27 countries on four continents and Oceania.  I am comparing US to the world, not some hypothetical perfect place.

I literally haven't had a power outage longer than three seconds in ten years and I haven't had one for three seconds for a year.  The last time it was off for any length of time, it was due to a wicked ice storm.

I pay about $0.11 per k/hr and half that for my heating and cooling unit.

What would it take to get a 10 in your book?

For Iowa to be America.

My daughter in law in Queens, a young doctor, pays 28 cents per kWh, and power cuts are fairly frequent.

Diverse America indeed lol!!

This was my point. The US is too big to rate.   Iowa will score pretty low when rated on things-to-do, nightlife, food, weather or culture.
