Your Questions About Cheapest Apartments In America
Why are electrical items and cars so expensive in Russia?
I don’t understand why things such as iPhones cost twice as much in Russia.
Import tax, and it’s a way to make money. It’s not just electronic stuff. A pair of designer jeans thats $100 in the U.S. Will be $300 in Russia. My father in law bought a Volvo XC90 a couple years ago. It cost him about $100,000, and in the States the same car was $65,000. Many Russians don’t pay rent because they flat out own property like apartments instead of renting. Many have homes and stuff for free due to Soviet times. A lot of things like food is much cheaper because they don’t put all the additives like America. Health care is free, so that makes it cheaper to live. Free health care sucks though, and most people pay for it. So in the end the cost offsets itself, and evens out a lot. Moscow also have more millionaires than most countries, so that’s another reason why.
I want to start slaughtering animals at home, will this bring “unwanted attention ” to my self ?
I don’t want to bring unwanted attention to myself, but I want to rais livestock in my apartment to help save on food costs. Is this frowned on in America, I havenot noticed any other livestock raised in city limits other then cats and dogs.
Rabbits would be a good choice, you could have a nice little “pet” rabbit pen in your apartment and other people would never suspect what you are up to if you go about it right. Rabbits are also cheap, easy to take care of and are good eating. So to raise livestock in your apartment you will need to disuise them as pets. Rabbits are actually a pretty common pet for americans. Go to your local pet store and check out what sort of pet might make good for apartment livestock farming. Guinea pigs might make an excellent option as well. You could also construct or buy a fish aquarium to raise fish in. Birds are also commonly found as pets in America except for birds that are raised specifically as livestock such chickens. Hope this helps.
Can America quit buying toys and drugs and get serious?
The economy is in free fall, and the country is quickly becoming a corporate dictatorship while more and more Americans are sitting in front of video games stoned. Can you please put down your toys and get serious?
Hey AJ, I don’t know about the corporate dictatorship part of this, I am more concerned with the power that rests in the hands of politicians who are helping corporations do crazy things legally.
You have hit the nail on the head, our people are spoiled and will need a great deal of pain to come to them before they wake up.
That is the natural way of things, however we have created programs to help people avoid this pain, government safety nets that give false security to people. They don’t prepare, they think someone else will take care of them.
Now it has built into a huge bubble and small lessons will not get through at this point. A total collapse is on the horizon and some people will suffer a terrible consequence.
In the long run it may be good, but the crawl back to prosperity may not be in our lifetime. What can you do when your population is so lost.
I read the answers from a huge percentage of people on here and they couldn’t be more clueless. Only one thing will teach them that utopia is not coming. That hate for your neighbors is hate for yourself. We slap the successful and they slap us back.
We think happiness is things and luxury, and we believe all should have these things even if they didn’t do the work to get it.
To your point, we amuse ourselves with the very luxury we think we need and we stop creating and thinking. I long for the excitement of the big sale, the success of hard work, the solving of a problem and the rewards for being great at what you do.
But then I would be the bad guy, the greedy rich corporate bastard you all hate so much. Then I would go to Washington to buy protection from all the hate groups and regulations. Then back to the beginning I would go, broke and depressed, smoking dope and playing video games in my cheap apartment.
At least you would all like me again. Right?
What’s the most popular murder in the united states?
Im really interested in murders… And I recently found out about the Black Dahlia Murder and I found out all I couldabout it. What are some other murders (solved or unsolved, I don’t care) that you can think of?
JonBenet Ramsays; JonBenet Ramsays was a six-year-old girl known for her participation in beauty pageants in the United States. She was found murdered in the basement of her parents’ home in Boulder, Colorado, nearly eight hours after she was reported missing.
Jimmy Hoffa; Over a quarter of a century has passed since the mysterious disappearance of James Riddle Hoffa, and the case remains unsolved. But this mystery is not a who-done-it. The likely suspects are all known, and their motives are well documented. The question is: Where? What exactly did they do to Jimmy Hoffa, and where did they dispose of his body?
Oscar Romero; Archbishop Romero was shot to death while celebrating Mass at a small chapel near his cathedral. It is believed that his assassins were members of Salvadoran death squads, including two graduates of the School of the Americas.
Olof Palme; He was shot and killed while walking home with his wife after a visit to a cinema. The motive and identity of the killer remain a mystery.
The Boy in the Box; In 1957, an unidentified Caucasian male, probable age 4 to 6 years, whose nude body, wrapped in a cheap flannel blanket, was found lying face up inside a large cardboard carton just a few feet from the edge of Susquehanna Road in Northeast Philadelphia.
Jack the Stripper; Jack the Stripper was the nickname given to an unknown serial killer responsible for what came to be known as the London “nude murders” between 1964 and 1965. His victimology was similar to Jack the Ripper’s. He murdered six — possibly eight — prostitutes, whose nude bodies were discovered around London or dumped in the River Thames.
The Axeman of New Orleans; On May 23, 1918, an Italian grocer named Joseph Maggio and his wife were butchered while sleeping in their apartment above the Maggio grocery store. Almost exactly a month after the Maggio murder came a second crime. Louis Bossumer, a grocer who lived behind his store with his common-law wife, Annie Harriet Lowe. The Axeman murdered a total of eight people before the killings stopped. There was no evidence to link the only suspect, Joseph Mumfre, to the crimes.
Andrew and Abby Borden; On a Thursday morning, August 4, 1892, Andrew Borden left home to conduct his business, leaving in the house, besides his wife, an Irish maid (Bridget Sullivan) and his daughter Lizzie. On his return, he settled on a sofa for a nap. About 11:15 AM, Lizzie (according to her testimony) discovered her father dead, repeatedly struck in the head with a sharp instrument. Upstairs his wife’s body was found, even more brutally mutilated; examination proved that her death had preceded her husband’s by an hour or so.
The Zodiac; The Zodiac Killer is one of the great unsolved serial killer mysteries of all time, taking only second place to Jack the Ripper. Even though police investigated over 2,500 potential suspects, the case was never officially solved.
These are all great murders to read about.
Is there anything not so good about New Zealand?
I’m a college student from the U.S. majoring in Business. For the longest time I have had a facination with New Zealand and am more passionate about moving there than anything else I’ve ever experienced in my life. I’ve read and studied and all I hear are positive things about it. The one draw back I hear is business and jobs are not as readily available as other places. Can anyone tell me anything else that could be a con about New Zealand? I know the good, just want to know the whole story. Anyone tell me something that has moved there from America so I can compare something? Thanks!
Its a great country. However, its very expensive, even by international standards, for just about anything. House prices have ballooned to ridiculous levels in the last 5yrs, yet wages have not moved at all. 95% of New Zealanders earn less than $NZ 20 per hour, often much less. Minimum wage is around $11. A 2bdrm apartment/ house/ flat in Auckland will cost a minimum of $300 per week, not much less anywhere else in the country. Doctors are quite expensive now, probably $70 for a 10 minute consult. So too is any vice (alcohol, cigs, drugs, etc). Cars are very cheap used, and many Jap sports models. Meals and rooms similar cost to the US. Very multicultural, not a place for racial phobias. Hope this gives you something else to consider.
