Canberra and Dublin have taken out shared honours in the Mercer 2011 Quality of Living Survey.
Both cities shared 26th place in the survey.
Our all-seeing eye has come across politics.ie, where the topic of Canberra v Dublin has come up.
The original poster “gracethepirate” is of the opinion that Canberra is an Eden adorned with deep blue skies, filled with birds and often no clouds.
She begged the question: how can Dublin match this?
Predictably the comments that followed were a large array of Canberra bashers.
One poster, “meriwether,” commented that Lake Burley Griffin was a facility to commit suicide.
Our favourite comment, again by “gracethepirate” was a retort to the previous comment:
The suicide rate in Canberra is 9.7 per 100,000 population while in Dublin it is around 15.75 per 100,000.
