Sounds like an adventure. Who doesn't love a little spice?

Rochester! Just across the lake.

I don't hear great things.

What did you major in?

You do anything with Magna at all?

That is quite the move! It sounds pretty drastic, but I applaud your courage.

Indeed, upstate/western New-York accents are pretty grating, especially in women. No offense to your wife intended, jcp.

Hell, on that note, I prefer Australian accents to Austrian, so maybe you should humor whiteballz' mistake.

Yeah, the accents are my least favourite of all in the world, and the economy is not good.

On a woman, it's a deal breaker basically.

None taken...It's not at the top of my list, though there are some advantages.

Australia would be neat...it's kind of like the US, only on the wrong hemisphere :P seriously, though it's a gorgeous place with a great lifestyle as well.

We're in brilliant shape too.

You should come down and live a life of manly things.

Nope, though I did work for Magna in my internship year...

Yeah I've heard you guys are going like gangbusters on the backs of resource mining. Get that money where y'all can!

I've been practicing my German all night

They're like us in that way. We have a bit less Uranium than they do, but a LOT more oil.

I've always been attracted to Europe and it's lifestyle but i've also always been attracted to Australia and it's people. That's a tough choice but it seems like you're set with Austria and have done most of your research, my best advice would be to go to wherever you would be happiest and most financially stable at the same time

She got cold feet on the idea. Too bad, I would have loved to roam on the weekends to explore the hidden gardens of Paris, meander through the canals of Venice, hike up the Grossglockner or Krimmler Wasserfaelle, be able to get Stiegl Bier...heck, just getting fresh bread and meat everyday would almost make it worth it...

...damn

I still don't really want to consider living in the Northeast.

Probably the best selection of cars on the planet too...everything from diesel fuel-sippers to rip-roaring V8 muscle cars (OK, gotta give the Falcon XR6 credit too...turbo six). Plus the weather's great. I'd pick Perth since the climate's the same as my native California
