It's not. Not even close. No US city appears in even the top 10 global places to live in terms of cost. Even in the US, New York is much more expensive.

daily mail chart has SF as 2, this is from Decemeber, ive seen more recent articles that has SF as 1.

San Francisco and the bay area is insanely expensive.  My buddy has been living there for about ten years and has been telling me his rent and housing prices.  Denver, where I live, is up there on the pricey end and his costs make mine seem like pauper rates.

It's from the Daily Wail, therefore liable to be completely wrong like pretty much everything else they publish.

For instance, Singapore constantly tops pretty much any poll of cities by living cost but barely ranks in the Wail list. The 2016-17 Economist Intelligence Unit top 10 reads

1. Singapore
2. Hong Kong
3. Zurich
4. Tokyo
5. Osaka
6. Seoul
7. Geneva
8. Paris
9. New York
10. Copenhagen

That's from data published a week ago (http://www.economist.../daily-chart-13)

That's a more recent data set than my earlier post was based on, and puts LA at 11th.

Then again, SF is a Major City. It makes sense for a Major City to be expensive.

 

It does NOT make ANY sense for Morocco to be THIS expensive. f*ck

Yikes. Here I was thinking I was still going to be living with mommy at age 30.

 

It still saddens me to see Toronto at 86th.

I don't see the problem here. Is it because a Muslim is standing with the victims?

I was confused at first but I think it's because the mainstream media is running the story but the original tweet says they wont run the story.

Why do people arrange times to meet and upon that time choose to message to inform me they're 'getting ready' ... eh no, you made the time so if anything it's me who should be running late as I agree'd to your terms on short notice.

I should just start telling people an earlier time in the hope they're actually there when they originally proposed! :miranda:

My laptop is pissing me off. I've been using a City Overhaul mod for Skyrim (Dawn of Skyrim), and Whiterun is one of the few heavily affected cities. I've been through the dame Gods-cursed style: start Skyrim, reach Whiterun, start the Companions Questline then restart all over again because I "forgot" something. To make it even better, I eas using a fairly strong ENB.

Didn't lag even ONCE in Whiterun, yet for some reason when I removed the ENB (don't remember why tho), it started lagging loke crazy. Now, despite the fact I haven't done anything (other than lowering the shadow's detail level from Ultra to Medium), the game's back on track again. What gives!

Anti-Complaint: Just bought a good desk. IfI ever get lucky I MAY buy a Desktop computer with good specs. No more pathetic looking Skyrim and finally an access to DOOM4 and Watch Dogs 2! :D

Having a good desktop is always better than a laptop there really is no competition, specially when it's bang for buck!

Just got in a misunderstanding with my crush. So I decided to clear it up. One of my friends, who is also interested in her despite having a girlfriend said to me ''Hey, just tell me every detail when you will be going to talk to her on facebook''. I got angry a little .. I mean come on! Sure you are interested in her doesn't mean that you will butt-in in my matters.

 

Anyways, then he messaged me telling that I shouldn't clear the mess up as she won't be going to have a relationship with me and even if she will, I will have complications. I was like ''Are you a fortune teller?''. I told him to shut the f*ck up and that I am talking to her at the moment in a group to which he replied ''Give me every detail will ya'?''. I didn't. Than he begged that I should also include him in the group. I mean WTF? First you tell me that I won't bother to try to clear the misunderstanding and than when I refused, asked me to add him in the group? Pffft .. I really hate such peoples.

Apparently the desk we just bought is too big than what we though. Damn thing blocked both sides of the Dresser's doors. Now I can't use the upper side.

As the Moroccan saying goes, "اللحية وقاة الحياء / A beard with nonexistent manners". The asshole we bought this sh*t from is apparently religious, judging by his beard. Asshat cheated us - we've found a good desk in his shop but its part of a set. We asked him if he have an identical desk, he said he have, with the only difference is that this one is darl brpwn while the other (the one we bought) is light brown. Turned out that one is A LOT BIGGER than it should be. We only had 90-109 cmm to spare. This thing is a weeping 120. Wtf?

Dude if he's in a relationship and is trying to get with her you should tell his girlfriend about him being a dickwad and attempting to cheat on her.

I really want too. But I have seen him with his girlfriend and seeing how happy she looks with him together makes me stop. Their relationship has been going on for years and if I told her this, she will be crushed. It is also funny how he cares about his girlfriend too and is afraid of loosing her but still interested in the other girl. Me and my other friend are doing our best to prevent his increasing interest on my crush though. We decided to make him distant with her and so far have been successful.

Spent five minutes trying to get a mouse of the room, but it ran away...only to return later. I don't understand why they're here. Never seen a mouse before in this house. Why are you in my house, vermin? Why?

Oh, and spiders. Huntsman ones especially. *gags*

Came across a comment directed towards a friend.. I want to defend them but don't want to start sh*t.

So now I'm just sitting here bitching about it to myself and here.


E: Well, this is awkward but was bugging me a lot.. Lol.
