    If you had to choose one of these two places to live for the rest of your life.....

    Let's say you MUST choose to either live in a wide open space, far from city lights or right in the center of a huge urban area....which would you choose?

    You couldn't pay me to live in a city. Been there done that, didn't like it. For lots of different reasons.

    I'm definitely not a city girl. I would choose wide open spaces any day.

    Rural, no contest.
    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

    How are the job prospects in the rural area?
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Neither. Suburbs are clearly superior to either option.

    I've lived both, each had their drawbacks. I'd need quiet for my work, but I'm likely to wind up back in the metro whenever I move from my current locale.

    You forgot to say, where. For me, the suburbs are the worst of both worlds. No, actually, the 'burbs are hell. I have lived out in the country but now I'm living downtown in a city but my city is in Mexico. If I had to move I would probably live in another city in Mexico. If for some bizarre reason I had to live in the U.S., I would definitely live way out in the country. Is Ted Kasinsky's shack up for sale?

    I've lived in rural area's all my life, and I'd much rather be in a city.

    I live in the suburbs, I like the suburbs. But If I had the choose I'd rather live in the city than the countryside.
    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.
