We know the Yanks are an ignorant bunch. Post cultural differences that you think might surprise them.


- I've never had or seen a Taco Bell, a Wendy's, a Papa John's or a Denny's.

- I've never seen a gun.

- When I roll a joint, it's mostly tobacco with the weed sprinkled in, quantity dependant on mood.

- Until recently, I'd never heard of a S'more. Still never had one.

- When my mate was diagnosed with Leukaemia, he was sent to hospital to start his treatment on the same day. His two year program was all free-of-charge. In fact, they even offered to refund his taxi fare to the hospital, but the admin office was in a different building and he couldn't be arsed.

- I've never seen a game of, and don't understand the rules of: baseball, basketball, American football and ice hockey.

- I'm English and I don't like tea.

- There's a shop near me that still sells Twinkies. (Canadian ones, so Twink-ehs.)

I've only seen a gun a couple times and neither time was it being used, or pointed at anything

That isn't really a joint then, is it?

Weak ass bitch stick is what it is.

of course I don't even smoke weed anymore, still. . .

None of those things surprise me, but the s'mores thing is sad.

Yup.
Although you guys should all have guns, you never know when you'll decide your life is worth more than someone else's.

Here's some more:

We have corners on our roads, not just at intersections.

Virtually none of our cities are laid out on a grid

We can all drive cars (automobiles) with manual gearboxes

I don't have a yard, I have a garden

When I go out for a fag, I'm not looking for (another) homosexual

I always wonder why you guys call it the World Series (Baseball, American Football or whatever) when there's only Americans playing

Quote by Rossenrot
I know Americans who share the same characteristics as the ones you listed off. Here's something you might not know bout America, we're incredibly diverse.

Also, Toadvine, nice sig.

Football is the Superbowl, it was named The Superbowl because the person who was going to come up with the name had a son who always played with a bouncy ball called The Superball, thus Superbowl (srupid right?). The World Series in baseball, I'm not sure but I think, is called the World Series because of the Toronto Blue Jays from Canada. Not sure about that one though

The smores thing and the gun surprised me.

If someone uses a gun in the UK our police usually end up killing them (Our police don't carry guns but have them in their cars and their use can be authorised over the radio senior officer).

Seriously, you guys shouldn't be too attached to them. More people were killed by toddlers playing with guns in the US last year than were killed by terrorists - fact.

are you saying that any country is nearly as diverse as the united states is?

and the world series could be considered fitting seeing as how its the most known baseball league in the world were the best players across the world will eventually come to play (most of the time)

1. I don't know what that means

2. Don't care

3. Hmmm, sure okay I'll give you that although I'd say most Americans with licenses can drive a stick.

4. A garden has vegetables, or flowers, what the hell do you call a garden then?

5. Yep

6. If you think only Americans play in the World Series you are an idiot.

We Americans are fully aware of how stupid you all are but I guess if you want a thread to further accentuate it then that's cool with me

It really depends on the period of time you take it over - we've been at it a lot longer than you.

It's not really about diversity it's more about acceptance.

You still have rampant racism. We have it too but a lot less than you.

Now I'm going to get my rifle, go out in my YARD, and shoot myself some dinner.

Can't say the same.

Besides from a bb gun, I've never seen a real gun either.

That is some week shit man. I don't even smoke and I know that's week shit.

- Until recently, I'd never heard of a S'more. Still never had one.


I feel bad for you.

- When my mate was diagnosed with Leukaemia, he was sent to hospital to start his treatment on the same day. His two year program was all free-of-charge. In fact, they even offered to refund his taxi fare to the hospital, but the admin office was in a different building and he couldn't be arsed.


Well it just goes to show how shitty our health system is.

- I've never seen a game of, and don't understand the rules of: baseball, basketball, American football and ice hockey.


You need to watch some TV then.

- I'm English and I don't like tea.


I'm American and I like tea.

- There's a shop near me that still sells Twinkies. (Canadian ones, so Twink-ehs.)


I honestly can't remember the last time I had Twinkies.
