Daily reminder that if you live in one of these countries, you simply CANNOT be a robot.
Basically it tells you how developed your country is.
If you live in the above countries, you're losing on easymode, thus you don't deserve to be a robot.
It's actually quite opposite. I'm Norwegian but it's not so great here. Sure we have a high gdp per capita, but the people are cold and distant. Everyone live their lives for the weekends. Then the normies party, fuck and all that bullshit. During the week they work and watch TV. If one is not a part of the weekend party culture then you are an outsider. I'm unable to make friends and i sit alone in my room for at least eight hours a day. I dont have problems with money, but money is overrated and completely useless when it comes to real happiness. I will sit here inside a grey home looking out at the cold darkness while fapping over the high HDI value knowing i will be alone for my whole life.
You still have it way better than anybody else. People being cold and distant means you can relate to them more. I live in Italy and normieism is the way of life here. If you have even the tiniest bit of passion for hobbies that aren't normie as fuck there's a good chance people will flat out refuse to hang out with you - plus, good luck finding people with common interests when you're an introvert in one of the chaddest countries on earth.
Ah, I forgot to say that you live in an actual relatively safe country and with all probablity you're middle class. Middle class in your country equals upper class here. I'm lower class, live in a small house in a neighborhood filled with rapefugees and kebabs and I was forced to help my dad at his shitty job since I was 15 which consequently led me to drop out of high school. Let's be honest HDI does means a lot.
Yes HDI means something, but i would be just as safe sitting in a room in Italy as i am in Norway. I see people in a lot of third world countries are genuinely happy. They have caring families, lots of friends and they seem like "warm" peoples. I would trade being a lower middle class Norwegian for some genuine happiness and friendship in a second if i could.
>I see people in a lot of third world countries are genuinely happy. They have caring families, lots of friends and they seem like "warm" peoples.
That's a meme. A few pictures of smiling third worlders on the internet doesn't mean it's a country of happy people. Where corruption and struggle are commonplace unhappyness and uneasyness follows. I live in an actual touristic location and I have known quite a few scandis. All of them said the place was beautiful etc etc but they made it clear they would never live here. And anyway, being loud and having little respect of personal space doesn't mean being "warm". I suppose it's just what northeners assume at first glance since they're not used to living here. Quality of life, as in satisfaction and comfort goes well beyond a few beautiful landscapes and "warmness". By that logic, most african shitholes could be considered good places to live in.
We're possibly the most apathetic people you will ever meet
We're served shit daily by the government and choose to bury our heads in the sand
Our country being high in this list is more delusion then fact
Fair point. I have probably mistaken that as warmness, its just so different from people up here. But i dont believe a norwegian cant be a robot. Because if im not a robot then i am nothing. I would be a container for negative thoughts and nothing more.
We're both the same.
Fianna Fail (political party) screwed everything up in 2008 and since then everything is horrible but we just ignore it because le scenery and le quality of life.
I beat the system more than anyone here, but sadly some Eirobots weren't as lucky.
Teal deer it sucks but we don't care and that chart is lies
Sweden does better on the inequality-adjusted one. In the US, the 1% pushes up the stats drastically, so it does not really represent the average American you might see on the street.
