in thread (OT): Human Multi-tasking

And I've been told that Prague is so beautifull and those smalls streets and stuff...

It looks like this flood from few years back haven't affected you at all?

Getting back offtopic - growing up in Europe or some place like New York, and then moving to some less densely populated place (not going off-grid, just moving to some smaller version of newyork...) could do the trick.

Notice like few posts above someone mentions that living 30m away from center is unbearable - it usually takes 30-45m to drive through city. So moving to Toronto, living on 100acres and driving only 30m to the city may sound like a dream come true.

    Well, some of those streets are nice, but there's simply too many people in them for my tastes. I guess I am a little sociophobic. The flood did tear down some houses, mainly in Karlin (an old, but not to fancy quarter), but generaly the city is fine. Repairing all flooded houses and the Metro/tube/underground/subway was quite expensive, but you'd have to search hard to find any scars now :-)

    The little town I come from was actually hit worse, a few fishponds above the town broke and the water hit Blatna early in the morning tearing down two of the four bridges, damage the next one badly and flooding the last one so that noone knew whether it's still there or not for a day, 1.5 meters of water on the main square, some 20 or so houses down, the stadium covered by a meter of slime, ...

    But compared to the recent tsunamis in shouth Asia and India this was nothing.
