America

I was born and raised in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere in England. It was a strange start to life in some ways, the place was stuck in the past in a lot of things. England as a whole never moves fast, so when everyone else was getting high speed internet and new computers, we were still on dial up. I had that Amstrad until I don't know when. So I can't speak for the rest of the country when it comes to these things, but I wanted to just say when I moved to the US, i noticed some oddities, and I'm gonna bring a couple up.

The best part of using an Amstrad was the time you had free! You could start a game loading, go outside, climb a tree or something, then come home to find it was still loading.

We live in a much nicer society than the one I grew up in I think. When I was a child, oh so long ago, life was simple. You put in hours of work, regardless of your personal health or happiness. In return you were rewarded with someone else getting rich and you dying old and alone because the money you had saved didn't cover the heating bills.
