Ive been over to the UK once and i liked it. Im from the southern US btw. But i was quite young when i went over.

so i was wondering what are the UK's feelings on us americans? Specifially southern americans.

i mean there has to be some resentment seeing how we kicked yall's ass and then took over as the most powerful country in the world.

but thats just me.

Do you all view us arrogant selfish pricks like the media portrays?

I haven't met all of the however many million Americans there are, so I wouldn't like to generalise.

No, all Americans are fucking awesome.

We can't tell the difference between north and south and we don't care about the war you 'won' because with our rich and varied history it pales in comparison.

But through the media we know you go to high school which is the best and worst time of your life, you get really really fat or are really really skinny. You like things big.

If you're reading this and you think "this girl is talking total BS" then I must have forgotten to mention we 'get' you humour, but a lot of you don't 'get' ours.

That's only Texas. And we don't really have any power over Texas judging by recent events there.

Hey brother I'm from the south too, I always wondered the same thing. I think most Americans view people from the UK as elitist pricks, and most from the UK view us as ignorant morons. Either which way, America>UK. On a related note, Southern U.S.>The rest of the U.S.

I'm quite a worldly fellow compared to most Americans, and yes I am critical of society and government at times, but once you look past factors like Bush, religious fanaticism (on some levels), and the general Puritan/conservative mindset a majority have, there' not a lot to hate about the USA.

I don't know, it wasn't necessarily anything against anything you said, I just hate when people generalize negatively against Americans. It wasn't really against anything you did, just a good time to put that in there...

I wasn't generalising about all americans. I said he reinforced the typical view on americans.
wat.

Some see them as they would any other person. Some think they're stupid, annoying, fat, etc. Some just hate foreigners generally. And call us Brits, not UKers.

Also, there's no resentment over you being more powerful. Your country is also full of naive patriotism and pride for stupid bullshit. Industrialism, power, and capitalism have combined to turn America into a bloated cesspool with a wrongful sense of self-importance. But I've never been to America, so I don't know. This is just my view, not the average one. I have nothing against individuals, but this is how I perceive your nation.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

A lot of them are really loud and quite often have no idea what they're talking about, from experience. But I'm sure they're just like everyone else, just heavier.
