Goodbye Memphis-Hello World !
And here is breaking news from my old hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, USA.
Someone actually asked me today how I could move to a communist country. That country being Ukraine. I told him to read a book, turn off the tv, put down your phone, and do not listen to the Western media. They still don't know who won the 2016 Presidential election.
Ukraine has been independent since 1992. Memphis is home of the Dumb and Dumberer.
Google "literacy rates by country" and you will see Ukraine has a 100% literacy rate, as do almost all Eastern European bloc countries. Ukraine may be the most literate country on the planet. Russia too is in at 100% literacy.
The United States is 125th behind many 3rd World Countries. And that is being very, very generous.
Also in the news today:
Which USA cities have the highest obesity rates?
Cities with the highest obesity rates in America according to the research findings, the Memphis, Tennessee metro area ranks number 1 as the most obese city in the USA. This city has the highest percentage of obese adults and physically inactive adults. The second city on the list is the Shreveport-Bossier City metro area in Louisiana.
And to top it off most wear skin-tight clothes and think they look good. The below picture is what you see every day, everywhere. Memphians are not overweight. They are disgusting lard asses and their children are just as bad.
Rescue me from this place!!!
Let's see now. Dumb? Check. Obese? Check
What else is in the news today in Memphis?
2019 Cities with the highest crime rates.
1. St. Louis, Missouri 2) Detroit, Michigan 3) Baltimore, Maryland
4. Memphis Tennessee
With an unemployment rate of 4.8% and a poverty rate of 27.6%, Memphis is also one of the leading crime infested cities in America. The crime rate stands at slightly above 2000 per every 100,000 people with 181 homicides recorded per the same number of people. The city recorded over 653,000 violent crimes in the year 2017 making it one violent crime for every 59 residents.
Memphis is home to the dumbest, most obese, criminals in America!
Maybe the world.
I lived in North Memhis from 1961 until 1991 then moved to Bartlett, which is Northeast of Memphis. I have been robbed at gunpoint 3 times (twice in one night by the same person) and got sued for beating the crap out of 2 idiots that picked the wrong person to play the "knock-out game" with. Both went to the hospital. Both sued ME.
Good bye Memphis!
No signs of intelligent life here.
December 31st (today) is the last day I will ever step into your God-forsaken city limits until the day I take a taxi to the Memphis International Airport and head home to Ukraine.
2019 is the end of "Memphis Mark" and the beginning of Expat Mark's new life.
And here is my date for New Year's Eve. My old high school girlfriend of 3 plus years back in 1979. The Venezuelan exchange student I almost married. Can you believe she is 55? 40 years and 5000 miles between the two loves of my life.
Happy New Year to all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Making a living, making a difference.
