NYC's murder rate of 4 per 100000 tracks closely to the US overall rate of 3.8. There aren't easily sourced stats for Jerusalem, but Israel as a whole has a murder rate of 1.8 per 100000. Unless Jerusalem is exceptionally much worse than the rest of Israel (for which I have no data either way) then I'd have to conclude that Jerusalem is indeed on the same safety level with NYC, or slightly better.

I have to admit these numbers surprised me.

You are twice as likely to be murdered in the the US as in Israel. Both places have low murder rates.

I don't know how to write it more simply.

America is a planet compared to Israel. Great reporting.

But the stats he gave were per 100,000 people. So the population size difference is accounted for.

My fiance talked about us getting married for over two years before he asked and I always half jokingly told him, "you know this doesn't count as a birthday or xmas present right?" to dissuade him from asking on a holiday. I don't think it's really materialistic, because I don't even really give that much of a shit about the ring (or about getting a band to add to it when we get married) but, Chemda's right. It's more about the day (me vs us). Xmas is important to me (for nonreligious reasons) so to make it about being engaged would take all the xmas fun out of it.

The Type A in me looooves planning this wedding. But by no means should that be taken as having a "big american wedding". It's 35 people and my dress cost $90. I'd rather run literal mushy shit through my fingers than spend 10k on a day and not a downpayment for a house.

i did all the traditional wedding things the first go 'round. no regrets.

this time, i'd much rather Bear get me a chest freezer than make me a wife. i mean, those things /do not/ quit runnin'. when you buy a chest freezer, it's a 30 year commitment to properly accommodating properties. they're like hope chests for game meats and casseroles; what homes are made of.

Too bad you can't get married AND get a chest freezer.

Such is life.

Sparrow 05-15-2016 11:05 PM

i'd get married if i had more title options.
