Best Places to Live

Any list can be controversial and this one is no exception.

Are these really the best places to live in the world?

What was it? 4 of the top ten were in Switzerland?
You've got to be kidding.
I'll go with Harry Lime's lines as reagrds Switzerland: "Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

I don't think living inside a cuckoo clock can be that interesting. Safe, for sure. But interesting??????

Eclecticity,

Ha! Definitely Obama wards.

Darkov,

Well, it was heavy on the Swiss. Many of the choices struck me as boring. A few weeks in any of them and you'd be ready to head for southern Italy. BTW: Anyone who quotes from The Third Man gets extra credit. Great film!
