    Seeing how most of you carry knives and guns, the United states doesn't look like a safe country at all.

    Seeing how most of you in India play with cobras, India doesn't look like a safe country at all...

    ...sucks basing an entire country off of a few examples, huh?

    People in your country get court-ordered gang raped for non-violent crimes?

    Parts of India are ....ed. True.
    No denying or defending that.

    but US looks like a peaceful country, and lot of users seem to carry a weapon. Hence I am honestly wondering.

    No malice intended

    At the moment, my kind are trying to work towards acceptance and equal rights. Haters like to go out of their way to physically assault and harass people like me. Carrying at least a knife is definitely needed.

    Wow, i am really sorry to hear that.
    I have lot of gay friends and no one I know ever faced any violence here in India.
    But that's not the case usually

    The truth is most people don't care, culturally hinduism accepted and documented LGBT quiet well and accepted too. But people in the present find some problem with someone elses choice.

    And with US it makes lesser sense since most of the country is well educated.

    I mean, we're definitely very well educated compared to like, 3rd world countries and stuff.

    That's a funny thing about USA--it's hella better than most terrible poor and resource-less lands across the globe, but in comparison with basically ANY proper nation (of which we claim to be as well) it's a total ....-hole.

    It's not really a fair comparison though. We have a huge, non-homogeneous population with fairly large geographic and economic dividers.

    Don't get me wrong, we're very very far from perfect, but calling this place a "....hole" absolutely reeks of childish, first-world millennial internet garbage.

    Comparative ....-hole, I believe was what I said. I also mentioned that it's a comparative paradise when we look at other places.

    You make a good point about size though. When you compare us with Russia or China or Brazil or something really we're doing pretty good. Canada doesn't count because it's just a few white people.

    There are large portions of the population that are middle-eastern and south Asian in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia. Not to mention lots of Asians in general in all the major cities.

    I still chuckled, though. :lol:

    What I carry

    1: Wallet with guitar picks in it
    2: Mobile phone - Android
    3: Watch - Cheap one usually with metal strap as leather one gives me skin irritation due to sweat
    4: Bike keys
    5: Measuring tape - I am a civil engineer thats why

    Back pack containing
    1: Extra t shirt in case there is concreting on site
    2: Small journal/notebook
    3: Laptop when needed

    I also carry earphones but I have burned through so many pairs I am wondering what to do about it. Bought a stereo bluetooth headset too but it broke in a few months as well. Don't know what to do about it.

    It might have something to do with your flaming hair (and temper, perhaps?) :cool:

    Offtopic: As far as america goes, I think of it this way. It's a country with extremely awesome nature. EXTREMELY AWESOME - that is what I said.
    I do feel a lot of Americans are sort of .. brainwashed. A lot. Also, they seem to NOT like their extremely awesome nature at all. WHich is sad.
    (I have not been in america, only spoken with some americans live. Used to live with american soldiers, which is the source of my opinion + internet:D)
    I hope nobody got offended.

    As someone who lives in eastern europe, guns are extremely rare here. It is possible to carry a handgun, but in 23 years I have not seen such a person in the streets. Also, since the hipster trend arrived here too (in the capital mostly), violence is also rather rare. Which is a win

    Anti-gunners can't resist the temptation to let us know how much they disapprove of us carrying them around.:lol:
