Why do people like to live in places like picrel? Don’t they feel an incentive to make their living spaces not look like bumholes?

They can be intelligent, well-connected, or productive, but none of them at the same time. Only rich people are all three.
this is a typical hungarian village, people living there are mostly poor too but they make the most of what they have
a little care and your village actually looks pretty livable
why does it look so fake?
let me guess, you find picrel organic, but that village is fake
it looks like an oblivion screenshot, and no I don't live in a suburban development, I live on the atlantic seaboard
You're just jealous since I have a yard homosexual
While you live in a hungry commie block
Because he cherry-picked an ethnographic village.
Pic related is your real Hungarian town.
I can confirm. This is how villages look like even in western Hungary.
Most of these places have 1 grocery store for the whole village. Nobody goes there to shop though, because it's overpriced.
Hungarians are like Americans, they literally drive everywhere even if just popping down to that one store for 2 heads of garlic.
Villages have 1 grocery store max, maybe another for a small pharmacy that is open 4-5 hours a day.
Austrian villages have gas stations, multiple banks, pizza places, restaurants, hotels and public swimming pools.
>pircel: Austrian village
that's a city to us lmao
Yeah, Austrian villages and cities don't differ in appearance.
Thank God logistics in America aren't total dogshit, you can usually find quality stuff in small town grocery stores all across America and not get priced gouged. Hell, I was in a bumfuck farm town in Missouri once and they had imported Italian pasta and such.
we had the same problem when one shop was left in village motherfucker was pumping prices like hell but now they are opening a big shop so the greedy fuck will bankrupt
He was pumping them prices because he got less and less customers. The real purchasing power and number of the customers (mostly pensioners in the village) has been decreasing for the last 25+ years.
that's how random villages in most of eastern europe look
Because it is clean and not being ruined by naggers
It's a Potemkin museum village, dumbass burger. Stop falling for this shit, the Hungary you see in Orbanist propaganda does not exist.
Agree with you anon. It just looks like a tourist trap.
>Here is a nice place for Safari.
Now i look at this screenshot, how many fucking satelite dishes they have?
That's a house where the workers are accommodated. They are probably paying anywhere from 1/3 to 1/2 of their salaries to live in that house.
and their families*
This is btw their permanent residency.
>It just looks like a tourist trap
That's exactly what it is. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holl%C3%B3k%C5%91
Show them this. This is what the countryside really looks like.
Because we are 70 years behind on development.
This is my experience from driving through Hungary as well. Only Romania is worse country in EU
Romania now has a higher GDP per capita. Their country is also double the size and they have more natural resources (excluding airable land). We should probably start comparing Hungary with Bulgaria.
nah bro let's not
is bulgaria the shittiest country in the EU?
Yes, Bulgaria is pretty much the shittiest. Hungary is catching up to it relatively fast.
Both pics look almost alike. The cherry picked one has pimped facade work but that's about it and a fancy cobble stone street that is not useful though
>Why can't everyone just live next to a landscaping supply store?
>Why can't people who don't have a wageslave job just pave roads for the cars they don't own?
>Why can't villagers just make it easier for retarded tourists like me to visit once a year?
I am indeed behind on chores
that's a museum-village, you dumb ass, nobody lives there, probably the children or grand-children of the original villagers use these houses as vacation homes a couple of weeks during the summer
that's a saxon village, you dumb ass, and saxons are long gone from Hungary and Romania, they were deported after WW2 gradually in communism so the trash native can inhabit their homes as rats inhabit sheds
>that's a saxon village
that's a Hungarian village. The houses that you see were mostly built between 1880 and 1935.
>The houses that you see were mostly built between 1880 and 1935.
>From 1867, territories connected to the Hungarian crown were incorporated into Austria-Hungary [...]The kingdom was nominally restored during the "Regency" of 1920–1946
austrian-saxons built your villages and cities and then you kicked them out. And while you were busy doing that, the Russians came and raped you both. So nowadays the "architecture" of Hungarians is simply put communist/brutalism with nostalgia towards a past royal golden age that never existed and if existed, the royal aspect of it was Austrian in nature.
Sadly you are right. The only mistake the Habsburgs made was not going full speed on Germanization of Hungary. They had their chance.
>posting a literal open air museum tourist trap
Fuck yourself fidesznagger
tesó hollókón kívül jól tudod hogy egy falu se néz ki így
What the fuck do you mean by "look bad" OP that is just a dirt road with some fences and houses.
I literally do not get city slickers and their brain tumors, it makes no sense. I saw this one picture where dim sunlight was shining off a road in rural west virginia and some city slicker said
>Honestly how could you live like this how terrible
What the fuck, some kind of mental illness? It's winter in a small village, what is it supposed to look like?
Bro look at this summer day it's different from winter wow my mind is opened.
>intelligent, well-connected, or productive
You forgot will. I know plenty of people who live way below their means who have all those things you listed, they just don't give a fuck.
Wealth certainly isn't directly proportional to productivity in modern western liberal democracies. America is losing its position because of that.
unironically it looks like 80% of Hungary
unironically some villages in central/eastern european look like that
it's usually just old white people and gypsies living there, because the young folk left for the cities.
oligarchs stole all the people's wealth after ussr collapse. it's not their fault
i live in canada retard
Why wouldn't you wanna live there? All cities are hellholes.
Very affordable vodka
1. Personal garden where you can cultivate fruits, berries and vegetables
2. A dozen of chickens provide you with eggs and meat
3. If you're wealthy, you can own a cow - milk, cheese, cottage cheese
4. You can probably get a decent internet connection there, at least 1mbps if it's just ADSL
5. Nature. I used to visit a village of my grandparents every summer. You could just go out of the village and walk for hours, encountering rivers, fields, forests. Very beautiful, I miss it alot living in a city
Basically, living in a villagie is for old people who don't have to work anymore
i want to come and play with malenka mishka like i did in 2019 in azov sea 🙁
This is the way.
I look forward to retiring in rural Russia/Ukraine/Belarus.
It's not that bad near Moscow either, you get better amenities e.g. delivery taxi etc, though landscapes are more drab, of course, and land plots are smaller.
See https://dmitrov.cian.ru/sale/suburban/287585576/ for example.
a modest cabin
You may look into this shack: https://dmitrov.cian.ru/sale/suburban/269049229/
If you're into grabbing one I'd hurry, seen this one being advertised for 200m less earlier this year. Belongs to some horsefucker cunt. I'm still not certain who it is.
for this price you can buy a decent mansion by the seaside at sochi, why'd you want to live in some fucking dmitrov loool
Maybe that's what she realized as well? Though I'd much rather prefer Crimea. People of Sochi are kind of snobbish, it's been overpriced for at least a decade and Black sea is kind of lame no matter where. Unfortunately Crimea hasn't had that many decent houses built, having languished under hohols for so long. Construction material prices are ~1/5 higher than on the mainland too and I forgot to inquire about delivery times. Probably a hassle to build there if in a hurry.
It's too modest.
you'll probably get robbed out of all your money and killed
i have internet 60mbps in the village
>living in a villagie is for old people who don't have to work anymore
They still do 8 hours of chores around the house.
>pircel: typical Ukrainian village
Day Z Chernarus
Listen buddy, Canada used to be a lot nicer.
We're not happy it's gotten this bad.
Why are you showing us rural Hungary again?
I don't see the problem, there's no litter on the street and despite being made with cheaper materials the houses look clean and well-maintained. Do you have a problem with unpaved roads?
what is the problem
the soviet system was an industrial scale machine of learned helplessness, it will take several generations to unfuck those people
Their nation isn't host to the central bank that provides the worlds reserve currency and so they don't get to live wildly beyond their means. Much of rural America already looks like that and it'll be more like 95% America looking like that when we no longer have the world reserve currency.
Their nation has a Rothschild central bank too. They have strict capital controls and a multi-sector economy that perceives small private businesses as tax cows and as a dangerous competition to state owned enterprises.
What do you want him to do?
Pave the road by himself?
He needs more
>look like bumholes
While many of those places are genuinely shitty, I'm sure some of them are nice places that just look like crap because the owners are more interested in living in their homes than using them to signal status.
DUDE i just LOVE the hustle and bustle of the big city, it’s so DYNAMIC and makes me feel like i’m in one of my favourite TV SHOWS. you should totally come on down to my studio apartment, it’s got EXPOSED RED BRICK walls and everything, we can crack open a nice hoppy ipa or three and get crazy watching some cartoons on adult swim! and dude, dude, DUDE, we have GOTTA go down to the barcade- listen here, right, it’s a BAR where us ADULTS who do ADULTING can go DRINK. BUT!!!! it’s also an ARCADE like when we were kids, so we can play awesome VIDEO GAMES, without dumb kids bothering us. speaking of which megan and i have finally decided to tie the knot- literally -we’re both getting snipped tomorrow at the hospital, that way we can save money to spent more on ourselves and our FURBABIES. i’m fuckin JACKED man, i’m gonna SLAM this craft beer and pop open another one!!!
Always good for a chuckle followed by rage
People rather wait for the government to fix things than to show initiative, its probably also illegal to make changes at all and if you do, some slavic asshole snitches on you for doing so.
>its probably also illegal to make changes at all and if you do, some slavic asshole snitches on you for doing so.
You're a proper kraut.
>My 60-year old American friends are driving Porches and Ferraris
Imagine acquiring debt to impress other debt slaves.
All the stasi snitches in DDR had names like blablakowski or blablaowitz.
that shit looks so fucking comfy. imagine it, you don't have anything to worry about but surviving - maybe you have some chickens, a goat, a cow, etc. your only priority is staying alive, not having to work 2 jobs/go to school just to afford your car payment, your son/daughters car payment, your mortgage/property taxes, utilities, the now rising cost of living due to inflation. Modern life is a giant fucking lie, it teaches you that "happiness" is found in materialism/consumerism, when it only provides dopamine for a short bit and then you're stuck until the next thing you buy.
These people don't even have enough money to fully refuel their 20 years old beater of a car.
I ride to the store every other day for neighbors/family/my self on my motorcycle. The past month I've not had to fill up my tank once, in 100 miles the fuel meter is barely below full. Honestly some of the happiest people I've ever met are poor as shit, some of the most miserable/suicidal are rich as hell.
Appalachians look kino, this just looks like Alcoholistan.
ya picrel is OC from my backyard trails. Appalachia is great no doubt.
Better than russia or not?
In Hungary only gypsies let their kids play outside like that without supervision.
Whats the problem? I bet you spot one car per hour there.
it's all relative. I wouldn't go as far to say Russia is better or Apalachia is better. Personally I like owning short barreled rifles, concealable pistols, etc - being able to grow marijuana on my property, etc so in that regard for me it us better than Russia. But as far as all your needs being met, comfiness, they're probably very similar
Asphalted streets make the difference. This looks thousand times better than anything in romania.
kek ya, at least some of the infastructure is maintained. we just got new roads ourselves, it's very nice no doubt. The places you see houses so dilapidated like that it's typically because the people fell on hard times, inherited their homes and didn't have the money to keep up with repairs, etc. Maybe they're similar to russians and would rather spend their money on food, alcohol. It is comfy in that regard, not always competing with your neighbor can be nice
Too many trees. Can't see shit for trees.
The guy on the pic could be around 60. My 60-year old American friends are driving Porches and Ferraris while he keeps horses in the backyard (he prob spends all his money on cheeps booze).
>My 60-year old American friends are driving Porches and Ferraris while he keeps horses in the backyard
good for them, but it's not necessary to be "happy". For that you need Jesus Christ, those blessings are just a result of hard work and determination, but they're not necessarily going to bring you happiness, nothing is besides God, otherwise you'll always search for the next best thing that'll never come to fill the void
They are the richest, but at the same time, most miserable people I know.
my point exactly my friend, a lot of westernized life is all one giant lie for show. people base their entire persona/outward appearance attempting to seem like they're the happiest for strangers but behind closed doors they're always fighting/are depressed/miserable
Who knows, maybe he's just saving money for a second lambo or likes to dress in an extravagant manner!
In fact if you look to the right of the vintage retro payphone booth you may see a part of some supercar behind a fence.
>Who knows, maybe he's just saving money for a second lambo or likes to dress in an extravagant manner!
Bro, please both of us know.
Here in oklahoma people keep horses in their yards and spend all their money on booze too
I'm jealous. I live in North Carolina, which is becoming more urban.
>60-year old American friends are driving Porches and Ferraris
Like 85% of americans make less than $100K you retarded gypsy. US system rewards ultra wealthy and almost everyone else lives middleclass-low class life.
there's almost 43 million US citizens living in abject poverty, pollack bro. The median income now is $35,856. In 2000 it was $31,812. Despite record high inflation and cost of living, the median fucking income is barely enough to make ends meat. You need to work two jobs to even survive a mortgage/property tax payment plus car payments if you have them
WOW but everywhere we hear that americans are rich as fuck u know greatest country etc
yes at face value, absolutely. Even in poverty I still sleep with a carbine setup for fighting, loaded magazines in every single room of the house, body armor setup, gaming PC, etc. But still, the vast majority of people rent and will likely never own a home. I'd rather be piss poor in america than a lot of places in the world.
It's been a long time since I last saw one of those phones.
Bulgarian shithole joining in bros! Btw, we have good places, i just want to make you feel better and have a laugh.
It really does look like modern photographic art.
Yeah, this one was suprisingly kino.
>He knows something.
depends if you have 5 euro
where your horses are
What kind of quest would this guy give you?
50xp for delivering vodka to his babushka in the town over
He'd ask you to go kidnap him a bride.
>glue sniffer boy.
He jumped from 9 story building twice and survived.
looks like Russia.
Putin has open border policy with mongol-muzzie shitholes. Buy a train ticket and come here work illegally, no visa required.
Putin is slowly replacing us with these obedient muslim slaves, so they drive down wages. They can live on a bowl of rice a day crammed down in a basement.
Job opportunities disappear
>Implying a whiny homosexual like you would take these jobs.
my plan is to go back to hungary where i originate from , sadly the pay and living standarts are terrible compared to what im used to and there is little to no gibs.
i miss it and talking hungarian to anyone besides my mother and brothers.
is it worth it to save up your money and go back to hungary/live comfortable with that money? here in america we could save up $20000 and go live in the dominican republic very comfortable with a beach side condo for $500-600 a month. A lot of people do that to retire with their pensions/social security/disability money from the government
No, it's a complete shithole and getting worse each day. If you want to move to Eastern Europe either go to Estonia or Slovenia.
I see, I'm sorry to hear that bros. At that point whether it's cope or not, simple living does sound the most appealing to me.
Groceries are priced the same. If you go to Costco and buy bulk it would be cheaper in the US. If you don't buy bulk, the US is more expensive. There are some products that are really hard to come by in retail chains, like beef and steaks.
> like beef and steaks.
it's no different here bro. Unless you go to local farmers, it's typically not even worth buying a steak from a store. If you pay for a ribeye/strip from sam's club $11-15/per steak, and it's tough as shit and just meh all around, you regret even spending the money. It's unironically better to get a hunter's license and hunt deer
I don't think you get it. There is no ribeye steak of any kind in retail stores. At all.
Basically there isn't for us either, it's all cloned and garbage meat. The difference there is none if there's the illusion or there's simply no choice. In America we simply have the illusion of choice, we are gaslit. All our food is genetically modified, high fructose corn syrup ridden trash.
All the good beef products are being exported to Western Europe. You get ground beef in retail stores, that's literally ALL we get.
>You get ground beef in retail stores, that's literally ALL we get.
And it's usually Polish, lmao
More and more Polish brands show up. The meat and dessert brands from Poland are mostly inedible. I don't know how they do it.
> I don't know how they do it.
it's because Polish recipes don't call for 5kg of pepper per 1kg of meat
as you and your Dalit gypsy friends are used to
Once you taste our food you cannot go back.
>Once you taste our food you cannot leave the toilet for an hour
>You could be as happy as him.
>Why Polish people don't season dey food
I used to eat lecso nearly every day but then I had to move and people cried about it burning their eyes, the big babies.
Dude, what the fuck are you talking about? Quit buying meat at Sam's and go to a butcher if you want quality meat. It's not that hard.
That's why I said it's better to not even buy meat from a grocery store. My local butcher had to sell his shop because it's gotten so bad as far as the quality of cuts available to them. But ya as I said, better to go to an amish farmer buying the whole cow in bulk than go to a store
You must not live anywhere that has quality meat period. All the local butcher shops here get their inventories from local farmers and I'm in bumfuck Midwest.
I'm sure there's options but I'm broke as fuck and don't have $400-500 to drop on a whole cow from an amish farmer rn. Totally would if the money was available. All my money goes into property taxes/upkeep, etc. But you're probably right, the farming must suck ass here, it's certainly not like Texas
Get a 1/2 or even a 1/4 of a cow if you can save up some money, it's worth it and you can stock a freezer full.
true. the closest I've ever been to content as fuck was deep freezers full of deer chops/steak ngl
No point. Property prices in places you wanna buy are similar. Car prices are more. Medical expenses, salaries, political and economic freedoms are much less.
>political and economic freedoms
If you speak out you will get your house searched and your business investigated/shut down.
You can easily trial that in Russia by posting on VK that Putin's invasion of Ukraine is a war and Putin is a war criminal. (A really bad idea, so don't do it.)
Be specific. Please.
You can rent homes in a thai ghetto for like 60 Bucks a month. For 100 Dollars you can rent a 200m2 house in Madhya Pradesh.
kek something tells me the people that do that go for the happy endings more than anything. Now there is weed too. For me degenerate sex isn't worth it, if I can't have a family would rather not have anything at all.
I am not interested in ricemixing either, just the food, seeing something new and that its cheap. But owning drugs in Thailand isnt a good idea.
>I am not interested in ricemixing
meh if I could find a qt3.14 thai girl to start a family with, wouldn't even care at this point. My kids being pure blood would be great but western girls are so materialistic/shallow 90% of the time it's not even an option unless you make 6 figures
God damn I love Ples
Ples? I like that photo.
Looks comfy to me, I don't see any naggers anywhere or any trash in the road.
No, they like their low taxes and it makes liberals and naggers afraid to be around.
Fucking lmao, highest value-added tax in the whole world, 27%. Imagine if your dumb burger ass had a 27% tax on literally (LITERALLY) everything. You would start shooting politicians.
I actually fell for the meme and bought land & a dacha in rural Siberia back in 2019. In my experience people do upkeep at bare minimum effort because they just don't like to work. It's the NEET life manifest into a whole village. Retired Soviet boomers are also probably more entitled than western boomers because they got everything for free and expect gov to solve all the problems. My neighbors are millennial neets, both of them do short-term winter labor contracts in Irkutsk and then just live off that money for 2-3 years. What you don't see from street pics of these villages is the 500Mbps internet and computer set ups they have inside. My place has fiber but no indoor plumbing
>My place has fiber but no indoor plumbing
now we're talking.
How much did it cost you?
I see we have a lot of leftists here probably funded by soros. Don’t fall for their propaganda, what they show is not how hungary looks like. Picrel is a real, typical village here
There are tourist places like that. But that's not the average village. They are tourist traps, most locals don't go to any of those stores/restaurants/hotels.
No, because the urban clutter is just a mirror of their mental clutter.
And they can't escape their mentality.
Damn Minnesota looks like shit.
how is this politics?
who gives a fuck about politics /misc/ is new /b/
If you look closely, their houses don't look like bumholes. Dumbass.
>Imagine the interior of those homes.
>t. interior of average Russian village home
I do not understand what problem people have with this
>ITS... DIMLY HECKIN' LIT!
Reminder to all Hungarians that your beloved paprika came from Central Mexico by way of Spaniards in the 1500s.
so did potatoes which are associated with Ireland and Eastern Europe
tl,dr: everything is fake, gay and recent
I wonder what European cuisines would look like if vegetables, fruits, spices, and such weren't sent back to the Old World from the Americas.
wheaty and bland
Well, y'all still would've likely had trade coming from the Middle East and Asia so who the hell knows.
Berries and wild game for the israelites. Anybody else: Barley slop.
So did potatoes, our other main foodstuff. Red-white-green brotherhood all the way. Maximilian von Habsburg is the righteous Mexican emperor.
looks comfy homosexual
it's just comfy
I unironically consider people who threw their trash on the street or in the grass subhumans. There's literally no excuse, the bins are right over there, you filthy fucking animals.
They made a brand new street in my neighborhood, with brand new sidewalks, with those little poles to stop people from parking on the sidewalks, little trees planted along the sidewalk. It's pretty nice. One year later it looks like shit, people here are shit, just let the nukes fly and put an end to this shithole.
Belgorod look better.
Why you even care about Post-soviet rural area?
Some people are too stupid. Some people have no means of getting new materials. Some people are too poor. Some people literally just do not care
I dunno. But my dad is half Slavic, and he's turned our home into a depressing cesspit. It must be in the DNA of Slavs to live like gypsies and bums. They seem to be perfectly content with living in squalor. Meanwhile, my mostly Nordic ancestry can't handle it and craves cleanliness and order.
based your dad's just happy being alive and doesn't give a fuck. but I do agree gotta have some standards, but living in a shack in the woods sounds nice sometimes
For me its the fact fuckers use corrugated metal as roofing even though you can make roof tiles practically for fucking free
hear me out. imagine sitting under that in the rain, they are onto something there
The homes look a wee bit dilapidated, but structurally sound enough. Probably room for a small vegetable patch. Street is clean. Nice easy pace of life. Charming in its own special way.
For that you need to work. Its much easier to drink, don't do shit and complain about the shit you live in.
Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, Czechia and maybe even parts of East ~~*Germany*~~ are all preferable to globohomo.
I'd live there no problem. I don't need much and the countryside is a bonus. The people make the community, not the houses
Since private property not protected and could be easily transfered without your permission there is no point in imporevement. Your goal is to get away is fast as you can and don't attract attention
We have 1000 and 1 excuses for laziness in russia.
fucking kek. that's universal for people in poverty everywhere.
I like the snow and thats a nice home. This man has what he needs and is thriving. Nothing uncessecary
Honestly I dont give a flying fuck what a place looks like. Its the quality of the people living there that matters. Here's my tick list:
Do they mind their own business yet can be counted on to help out in an emergency?
Are they moral and honest people who wouldn't steal or try to rip you off?
Are they generally quiet and respect your privacy and peace?
Are they generally friendly and helpful without being intrusive?
Do they have pride in their ethnicity, value family, education, and reject woke bullshit?
Are they at least moderately intelligent and not just ignorant superstitious peasants?
Tick all of the above and I would rather live in leaky tin shack with dirt roads.
And yeah, I know I would have good luck finding all of those in one place. Some places in NZ and Australia are still like that, but they are fast vanishing and besides land and house prices have just become insane.
