The new annual Human Development Index is out and NORWAY is the best place for Earthlings to dwell.
"The (click >) HDI combines normalized? measures of life expectancy, educational attainment, and GDP per capita for countries worldwide.
It is claimed as a standard means of measuring human development—a concept that, according to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), refers to the process of widening the options of persons, giving them greater opportunities for education, health care, income, employment, and a country's development."
The hope of every "other" Earthling, who had the misfortune of being randomnly sentenced by fate to be born in a developing country, is to someday reach parity with the lucky, ungrateful, bastards who were just as accidentally birthed in a"G20" Nation.
I have a vision, that someday they will live longer, better educated, and healthier lives, so that they too can squander their good fortune with the pursuit of Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, and Pride!
Conspicuously absent from the report were
2 African countries;
Somalia-later & ZimBOB'sway,
both of which are completely intercoursed.
2 Asian nations;
Iraqistan & Bad Korea..really? That's weird.
3? European countries;
Monaco, San Marino, Vatican City
UGH! not a real country puh-leeze!
and 6 in OCEANIA, several exotic quaint island nations were excluded, presumably because everyone was at the beach when the UN phoned?
Kiribati, Tuvalu, Palau, Nauru, Micronesia and Marshall Islands.
So how did "your" country do?
