    2000 sq ft but then I live in the UK. One reason why returning to HK would be hard. Funny how you get to think that a shoebox is normal.

    What makes you think shoebox is not normal?

    I searched but couldnt find any definitive statistics on world wide average living sizes but I would bet that 2000 is not going to be the average...

    We define our normality by our experience and expectations.

    Meaningless to compare a Soweto slum dweller to a Western expat to a Australian farmer to a Dutch prince. Peoples past experiences define what is normal to them, not a meaningless worldwide average.

    While your definition is correct for "normality", it is not correct for defining "normal" -- nice try though...

    That meaningless worldwide average you casually refer to is also known as normal, the usual, or typical for the world we live in...

    You think normal is a mean average across 6 billion people, that is priceless - even for you *smile*
