Guest: Not for the lazy (1362 days ago)

Immigrated from Scotland to the USA - aged 19 as a bicycle and life loving lad.
Got a degree in industrial design in the States. Now 29; I live in Colorado, my office is a 15,000sq ft indoor bike park, my profession is Industrial Design, I've spent the last 3years designing bicycles and continue doing so.
America - The land of oportunity - If you get off your arse, put some graft in to get it.

AMerican dream is more like Scandinavian dream. In the old days working hard was enough. Nowadays you do need some sort of education. In Scandinavia its stll free to get an education..... so you have a better chance.

Seeing as dreams in general aren't real, then the answer to the question "is the American dream real" must surely be - of cause it isn't, its a marketing slogan!
