    City. I like being within 5 minutes of shopping, hospitals, restaurants, etc. I'm also not big on nature, especially bugs.

    I don't mind nature, I just don't like to live in the middle of nowhere and having your closest neighbors be a mile away.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Yeah...I'm paranoid..if something bad happens and I'm 40 minutes away from the closest ER I'd be absolutely freaked...same for cops and fire. I want 'em close.

    Having lived in the boondocks of SC for 12 years and in Boston for 4 years, it is without question a city.

    I couldn't imagine anything better, most people annoy the **** outta me, and plus when the rural area I like has places like this:



    Why the hell wouldn't I.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    So, that is why you live in Australia. It seemed like everywhere I went when I was there was like it. It was absolutely beautiful, but I could never live there for long stretches.

    I would love that. I've had some really annoying neighbors in my lifetime.

    I would never live in a city, I want my space, I don't want my neighbors in my business, I want privacy.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I think I would be claustrophobic in a big city - way too many people, buildings, noises, etc.

    All things being equal (like cost of living vs income, health, etc) I would choose urban in a heart beat. If nothing else, there is always something interesting happening and there is always the wonderful restaurants plus public transportation is less of a PITA than driving. I say this after having lived in a rural and urban area and know what life is like in either place.
