    I should visit Europe and Germany. As a second I'd probably pick Japan because I like the technology and food, but Germany would be a close one. I think if I had to live in Europe I'd likely go to Germany. Although when I'm in Canada I may scope out the pharmacy job market haha.

    I gave Japan a second look, but there are some social issues that made me hesitate. For one, the gender gap is insanely huge.

    PS. I would love to have you here in Canada!

    That is true, and then again German food is delicious as well.

    And I'll be in Toronto next week! I'm excited

    Re: best large country

    I have only lived in 3 of the "large" countries listed. I would have to say that Japan was my favorite. I really enjoyed the cleanliness, the high standards even fast food workers were held to in order to keep their jobs. The people are, in general, very polite and welcoming. They certainly know how to have a good time after working hard all day. This is clear by all the lights and high tech gadgetry they have integrated into their cities. They also love karaoke, and have bars completely dedicated to it. The only place I have had more fun singing Kareoke was when I went to the Philippines to visit my wifes family. Which makes sense because Kareoke is almost a national sport in the Philippines. After living in Japan, S.Korea and several other Asian countries, it made me feel sorry for the US. We are stoic and boring individuals in comparison.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
