Hey Pitmonkeys, I require your opinions and relative knowledge.

I have the possiblity of moving to either Germany, or Scotland, so I'd like to hear what you know about these two countries, preferrably from first hand experience, be it positive or negative.

Also, I speak German and English.

GO, GO, GO!

Edit: Yeah, I have lived in both countries and have a relative good knowledge of living in both countries. I'd just like to see what the pit has to say between those two countries and cultures.

Well it's an odd question. Why do you want to move? Each country Im sure will have its pros and cons as to your motives for moving in the first place. Your post is just asking for a flamefest.

Germany. Reasons?
Lower tax, friendly people, Oktoberfest, so much cheaper than Scotland/UK in general. I could go on for a while with this.

...it's not much of a choice. it's like choosing between being stabbed in the eye, and being stabbed in... the other eye.

no offence to germany or scotland.

i'd say germany, cause the weather is better. you're probably less likely to get killed by the IRA there too.

No, it still makes no sense. Just admit defeat.

I got family in Germany as well and, since my family kinda sucks there it's kind of giving me doubts about staying in Germany and moving instead to Scotland.

Both countries are awesome. Too awesome.

You should probably go to Germany then, atleast you speak the language.

Scotlands licensing laws regarding alcohol are going to ruin from september.

As a nation that thrives on alcohol, we're doomed.

Look at the Germans with their litre pints and cheap alcohol. They've got it right.

It's almost as if they are too hot, you know?

But honestly, I got to say, Scottish women were damn fine as well...

It's a draw on that subject.
#31
Scotland, why? Because the Germans on the plane with me ate too many eggs during breakfast and farted......do you TS want to live in a place knowing that at any given moment large guys will fart on you? didn't think so....

sorry no versus threads *reported*

oh and TS, there's two problems here; if you move to scotland, you have to make friends with the scots.. and it's the same for Germany.. move to Germany though if I were you.. it's so efficient

i live in scotland but i'll give an un-biased opinion.

germany:

its so much cleaner, there are less junkies fighting on the streets and you'll have a much better quality of life


scotland:

if however, you like drugs (which i assume you do), football, alcohol and awesome scenery, choose scotland

Another problem with Scotland is you're next to the English

You're absolutely right. I never had much chance to make friends in either countries so far...

Well... if I were faced with the decision, I'd probably do a lot of thinking on the matter.

But I'd probably go with Germany. Hesitantly.
