Small city tends to be "warmer" than big city (big as in not just in size...you know what i mean)...


Well In general (apart from intra-national inter-state comparison), apart from uniquely Singapore, A developed country (japan, sweden etc etc) usually have better social behaviours than a developing country.

This is not true for intra-national comparisons where u correctly stated that people in Adelaide are prob even more friendlier than people in Sidney.

And you ask why you got such unpleasant response??


I know it is a huge read, but If you had read every posts I have posted here carefully so far (esp the initial few lengthy ones), you will understand my intentions and WHO I am directing this thread to.

I do not find it surprising (in fact I expected it {like I mentioned}from the very beginning) to have unpleasant responses becos basically I was trolling away but for a said purpose. Therefore, of cos I expected eggs thrown at me.

In the process of targeting a certain group, I will inevitably hurt some others along the way of whom I have carefully apologized at the beginning when I spelled out my real agenda. I do not believe u belong to my targeted group, and I apologise to you (and others like you) again if u have taken offence.

this will be my last post for this thread as it's going no where - there's no "right/wrong."



I agree that this thread has more or less come to the tiresome end of its fruition, and in fact irrelevantly beyond too. I guess it's time for my exit too.

With regard to the irrelevant discussion on Kiasuism, I wanna thank all for sharing and exchanging ideas, including some of whom I had not responded to.

Cheers!

Well you will have to beat my score of 164 on the IQ test, don't ask me how i did it, it was my second attempt, the first attempt was 125, but i rushed it, with no longer than 30 seconds per question. :)
