    World's Best Place To Live

    [size=17pt]... and the award goes to . . .
    N O R W A Y!!![/size]

    According to the United Nations, Norway is the greatest country to live in.
    They use something called The Human Development Index (HDI) which is "an index combining normalized measures of life expectancy, literacy, education, and GDP per capita for countries worldwide. It is claimed a standard means of measuring human development"

    Norway have won the award in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.

    Other organizations have also ranked Norway #1 in their list of best places to live.

    Here are a few links:

    PS: Iceland won barely in 2007 and Norway came in 2nd, but let's ignore that. It was prolly a glitch in the system

    ...They just need to focus more attention on not scoring own goals.

    LOL! I guess you are refering to John A. Riise.
    Dude I saw that game and man that was crazy. I was just saying to my dad that Liverpool would be soooo unlucky if Chelsea scored now and then 2 seconds later Riise headed the ball in his own goal lol!

    I bet if you're a Liverpool fan that gotta hurt. Too bad Chelsea made the final. I hate Chelsea!!
