    You left out important details about Anchorage. Sure, the international terminal's business slowed down for a while but that was ~ 30 years ago. It has been rebuilt, added to, new terminals built, flights from Anchorage direct to London or Frankfurt still exist, but more importantly Anchorages traffic is mostly a huge amount of mail and cargo stopping between eastern Asia and the west coast. FYI population is now ~400,000 instead of 40. Trust me I'm from Alaska and fly through there all the time. No offense but almost every MReporterr that mentions AK needs to better research or not say ignorant shit like "small town" about Anchorage (which even at a population of 40,000 was the economic center of the state, for reference, I'm from Homer, pop. ~6k, to me small town means a couple hundred or less)

    4:47 - First class and tourist class are not the same product. If you are flying more than 10 hours, the ability to lie down flat compared to (now) not even reclining your seat back are two drastically different options. Yes, both will get to point B at the same time, but one will be able to function well, while the other will be somewhat groggy at best. 6:25 - In the '60s in CA, you'd walk up to the agent at quarter-of, plop $35 down (or something close) and catch the on-the-hour flight between SF and LA.

    I remember when I moved to DC in 2004, they said they planned to have a metro line out to Dulles Airport in ten years. I thought to myself, wow ten years is a really long time, but that'd be extremely convenient. It's been 16 years. The metro line still doesn't go out to Dulles Airport. #USA

    I’m skiing in Canada right now and I am originally from Holland. In Austria you pay €58 to ski from 08:30-16:00 in a HUGE ski resort. Here you pay C$130 each day?!! And what you get back for it is mwoah, and definitely compared to Austria! In Austria there are barely any old lifts left and everything is just great. But here in Canada and in the US I am just wondering, where is the money going?! All the lifts and infrastructure is falling apart... I believe there is some corporate scam behind skiing in North America and I feel really bad for North Americans when it comes to skiing. You should’ve mentioned European skiing aswell! Europe, where skiing is not a scam :P.

    All the juvenile comments aside, there are very good reasons why it would be impossible to duplicate such a feat in western countries and why medical facilities in the West take years to build, and it has nothing to do with incompetence or red tape. There's a very long list of safety measures and preconditions, like environmental impact studies, fire protection measures, logistics studies, etc., that must be met before construction can even begin. These measures might slow down a building project and they might cost a lot of money, but hundreds of years of experience has shown that this is the best and safest way to avoid structural failures as well as survive unforeseen catastrophes. Yes, China has without a doubt accomplished a very remarkable task, but it would surprise no one if the building structures begin to fail after a few short years or if contaminants begin polluting the environment thereby causing another epidemic in the local population. Which is precisely the reason why Western journalists were specifically excluded from reporting on the building process: they would have undoubtedly introduced an unwanted measure of scrutiny and uncovered any substandard building practices.

    It's not so much their salary that justifies the cost of different travel methods, but it's the value of their productivity to the company that helps justify the cost of private jets. In your example of Walmart managers, the better question to ask is what is the value to Walmart of a regional manager being able to do 400% more store visits in a year. I'd venture a guess that the value add from that perspective is a lot more than what their take home pay can justify.

    This only proves that the African governments are stealing the tax money from the people if it can't even finance a one km road much less keep their roads in good condition. Not just that but I have recently read that a Chinese company proclaimed that Africans are a bunch of idiots. Writing deals that aren't in their favor and that a Chinese man can easily setup shop in the country and the African companies would be out of business within weeks. Since Africans would rather support foreign businesses and goods than their own. No other country does that, lmfao. Japanese support Japanese products, same with Indian, Chinese, Korean, etc
