thoughtful

I thought so.

At some point I started wondering who big california was compared to other countries. Mostly because I was wondering how other countries could have good mass transit while the US's attempts were horrid.</p>


Place

Area (square km)

California

403968

England, Scotland and Wales

229961

Japan

377787


As a side note, what am I doing living in america? I use the metric system, prefer 24 hour clocks, think that mass transit is good think, think that services needed for the common welfare shouldn't be for-profit organizations (which seems to me to be a definition of socialist), prefer a modest and efficent use of resources, think that LGBT people should have the option of legally recongized relationships, and am an atheist.

It seems almost like I'm for everything america is currently against.
