Yes. Perth is probably the most boring "city" on the planet.

So if Perth had more serial Killers like Adelaide it would be less boring
They call Adelaide the worlds serial killer capital but its still boring place.

Who's "they"? I can think of other cities in the world with far more serial killers than Adelaide.

Yes, Perth is boring. I'm bored out of my mind. There is absolutely nothing to do here. The shops are closed on Sundays so I can't shop. There are no decent pubs so I can't go out drinking. Bananas cost $38.50 per kilo. Lettuce is $18.00 per head. My foreign TV set doesn't work here. I have to get a licensed electrician to change the light bulb that blew out in my front hall. I suggest we all drink the cyanide laced kool-aid now.

Are you serious Dorothy, you seemed a lot happier when we met last at kings park. I hope things improve for you if you are serious.

Perth is the 4th most livable city in the world and Perth also has the reputation of being Australia’s friendliest city. We are the most isolated city in the world so give us a break

No decent pubs? Where have you been going?
