    he he...i see you left out the car, but you put down london as the city you would like to live in

    they have such a great tube (subway) system that one does not need a car, and the thought of driving there, on the surface streets, truly scares me to death :)

    dang it. You are right... that's really how I feel about cars though. As much as I love cars, and love riding in them, and seeing them-- I don't like to drive. :eek: It scares me.

    I'd take a SMART, or, a MINIone (w/ a turbo kit :p), or an Audi S3 hatchback... none of these cars are here in the States though. :rolleyes:
