Top 10 Facts About AMERICA That Make NO SENSE to Anyone Else


10 Facts About America That Make No Sense
to Foreigners America. It’s one of the biggest countries on Earth,
both in terms of population and sheer size. It’s the planet dominating superpower; the
heaviest hitter where culture is concerned; a place known by nearly every single human
on the planet… and, to all but the 4-5% of humanity who live there, it makes absolutely
no gosh darn sense. See, despite its cultural clout, America still
seems deeply weird to foreigners. And we don’t just mean people who come from
repressive kingdoms and tin-pot dictatorships. Europeans, people from Southeast Asia, Australians
and Brits all find yuge chunks of life in the good ol’ US-of-A beyond comprehension. If you were born stateside, the following
might not seem super crazy to you. But trust us, every single foreigner is reading
this with their jaw dangling open and their eyeballs popping out. 10. US Toddlers Shoot One Person a Week Americans sure love guns. The US has the highest rate of gun-ownership
on planet Earth, and the least-restrictive gun laws (only Switzerland comes close). That’s all thanks to the 2nd Amendment,
which has been the subject of near-constant debate since being written. But it’s not the sheer number of guns in
America that really astounds foreigners. It’s the crazy things that leads to. Things like US toddlers shooting one person
a week. There’s literally no other country on Earth
you could write that sentence about. Even countries that are swimming in guns,
like Serbia, Norway, and Switzerland, don’t have toddlers blowing one another away. To be fair, they have tiny populations, but,
to be even fairer, c’mon buddy. US toddlers have shot on average one person
a week (including themselves) for the past two years. Even warzones don’t have numbers like that. More bizarre still, America keeps on arming
its toddlers. In 2016, Iowa made it legal for babies to
handle loaded guns. That’s right. The guys in the Hawkeye State elected to arm
the very babies that are trying to shoot them. How’s that for hubris? 9. Bestiality is Still Legal in 9 US States (but
premarital sex is outlawed) Despite this being 2017, plenty of US States
still have sex laws on the books that are… unenlightened, to say the least. And by that, we mean they were seemingly written
by two guys named Festus and Bubba while necking with their pet hog Clancy. Incredible as it may seem, there are nearly
ten US States where it is still legal to have sexual intercourse with animals. We say ‘nearly’ ten, because one’s the
District of Columbia (not a state, kids!). The other nine are Hawaii, Kentucky, Nevada,
New Mexico, Ohio, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming. In addition, plenty of states still only consider
bestiality a misdemeanor. This would be odd enough if the US was a spectacularly
licentious place, but it’s not. In addition to allowing you to marry your
bestest sow, four states still outlaw either premarital or extramarital sex, or co-habiting
with your partner prior to marriage. While the laws are effectively never enforced,
the fact they’re still on the statute books attests to America’s unique mix of religious
piety and deep-seated desire to mimic the guys from Deliverance. 8. The Highest Paid Public Employee in 39 States
is a Sports Coach Go to any other country in the Western world
– Canada, Germany, the Czech Republic, New Zealand, wherever – and the highest-paid
public employee will be someone working in a selfless capacity. They’ll be the guys and gals running universities,
or public hospitals, or the local council. America, though, laughs in the face of such
devotion to the public good. Instead of rewarding headmasters or doctors
or teachers, the highest public pay package in 39 states goes to sports coaches. Specifically, guys coaching football or men’s
basketball. We’re not talking comparatively small sums,
either. The salaries involved would be enviable in
the private sector. University of Alabama football coach Nick
Saban, for example, rakes in over $7 million, plus bonuses, likely making him one of the
highest-paid public employees not living in a corrupt dictatorship. For those from outside the states, this seems
less extravagant, and more like an absolute inability to get priorities right. Only Alaska, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Montana,
New York, Nevada, New Hampshire, Vermont and both Dakotas refuse to award their highest
public pay packet to a football or men’s basketball coach. Interestingly, both Hawaii and Vermont, as
you’ll remember from a second ago, still technically allow bestiality. We’re really not sure what to make of that. 7. Over Half of All Americans Don’t Hold a
Valid Passport In 2014, polling company YouGov revealed only
8% of Britons had never left their country of birth to travel abroad. While this is maybe not all that super-impressive
(Britain is tiny and France is close), it puts the US to shame. The same poll found only 50% of Americans
would admit to ever having left the country. That’s nearly 160 million people who have
never been to Canada or Mexico, let alone Europe or Asia. For people who were born in Europe, that’s
almost like saying you’ve never seen a glass of water. The idea of not going abroad from time to
time is alien. In places like Germany, over 90% of the population
hold a valid passport, and you better believe they use it. But that’s Europe, we hear you cry, it’s
a small continent with, like, a bazillion countries. Well, first, we’re pretty sure you’re
exaggerating there, bud. Secondly, look at Australia, a country nearly
as big as the US, and more cut-off from the rest of the world. According to official data, one third of the
population goes abroad every single year. That compares to 50% of Americans over their
entire lifetimes. Clearly, the US is a travel-averse country. 6. 30% of Americans Prefer Saving Money to Vital
Medical Treatment Compared to other developed nations, healthcare
in the US is expensive. You can blame that on too much Obamacare,
or not enough of it, but the fact remains that public systems, private systems, and
public-private systems elsewhere in the world all deliver better service at lower cost. This alone can seem staggering to foreigners. Then there’s the American attitude to health. Faced with a serious illness or injury, around
30 percent of Americans would rather walk it off than pay for treatment. This… simply doesn’t happen elsewhere. Norway has the second most-expensive healthcare
in the world, and pretty much no-one there avoids necessary treatment. Japan has an insurance-based, private system
with payments often covered by employers, just like the US, and people don’t skip
out on medical care. To find other people choosing money over hospitalization,
you have to leave the developed world behind and start poking around in poorer countries
where wages are low and healthcare unaffordable. We’re not trying to rag on American healthcare
here. America has some of the best doctors and hospitals
going. But the idea that you’d choose money over
health (or that you’d have to choose)? To non-Americans, that’s insane. 5. 7 States Have Custody Rights for Rapists OK, let’s turn to some really, really dark
stuff now. There exists a certain subsection of guys
who like to rape women. Occasionally, this results in their victims
getting pregnant. Depending on where they live and their religious
convictions, the women may then decide to carry the baby to term. Now, here’s where it gets creepy. In around 7 states, it’s perfectly legal
for the rapist-father to sue for custody of his newborn child. Imagine that for a second. You’ve been violently assaulted, gone through
the hell of guilt and self-recrimination, been courageous enough to bring the resulting
baby into the world… and now you’re forced to watch as the D-bag who hurt you decides
he wants to be a father to your son/daughter. Well, if you live in Alabama, Mississippi,
Maryland, New Mexico, North Dakota, Wyoming or Minnesota, that can totally happen. In addition, there are 20 more states where
it might be legal. In Indiana, for example, you can only block
the rapist from seeking custody if you remember to do so within 3 months of your baby being
born. This is some seriously dark stuff, and we
guarantee that if you mention it to anyone from elsewhere in the developed world, their
jaws will drop so low they hit the ground. Sure, some Middle East states may have even-worse
laws, but that’s not really a benchmark to aspire to. 4. America Has More Self-Identified Patriots
than Anywhere Else on Earth In July 2016, Gallup released the results
of their yearly patriotism poll. They found 52% of Americans call themselves
“extremely patriotic”, the lowest level in polling history. The news triggered a slew of introspective
articles by American writers, wondering what had gone wrong. For those reading elsewhere in the world,
it felt like stepping through the looking glass. 52% is such a good score it leaves other countries
eating the USA’s dust. Such levels of patriotism simply don’t exist
in the rest of the developed world. In a similar survey by YouGov, only 13% of
Brits thought their country was “the best in the world.” That was the highest score in the EU. Germany and France got only 5% each. The second and third highest-ranking countries
globally, India and Australia, scored 34% and 36%. But the US? The US busted through the 40% mark, with an
additional 32% claiming America was at the very least “better than most other countries.” For the majority of foreigners, the idea of
showing US-levels of patriotism is simply alien. You will never see a flag in every yard in
any other country on Earth. But that’s the US public for you: optimistic
to a tee. Even if they’re unhappy with their current
government, folks still believe that the idea of America itself is worth believing in. 3. Americans are More Likely to Get Bitten by
Other Americans than Rats The stereotype is that Americans likes three
things: football, fast food, and violence (often all at once). It’s true that America’s murder rate is
crazy-high. It’s also true that the national sport is
getting drunk and starting bar-fights. But surely it’s not as bad as all that? Well, we hate to break it to you, but this
arresting statistic says otherwise. If you live in America, you are more likely
to be bitten by another American than you are by a rat. To be clear, this isn’t because US rats
are particularly docile or rare on the ground. Cities like New York are completely infested,
and people get bitten all the freakin’ time. There are over 40,000 rat bites recorded in
America each year. The only trouble is, there are at least 45,000
human bites recorded right alongside them. Again, this is a freaky fact for Americans,
too. But, also again, it’s just something that
doesn’t happen in most other countries. Sure, drunks in Britain like to hit each other,
and Italian soccer hooligans are violent as heck, but biting enough people to outstrip
rats? It’s something we can’t imagine happening
anywhere else. 2. Americans Take ‘Fast Food’ Extremely Literally The US is the birthplace of fast food. It’s the nation that brought the world the
drive-thru, perfected the snack, and coined the phrase “lunch is for wimps.” Foreigners know all this intellectually. But confront them with a statistic like the
following, and it’ll still blow their minds. Americans, you see, are the 3rd fastest eaters
on Earth. On an average day, Americans spend only 74
minutes eating, nearly the lowest in the world. That’s only slightly over 20 minutes each
for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and far less if you include time put aside for eating snacks. If you live in the USA, this probably doesn’t
seem so weird to you (the working lunch is an American specialty), but if you live elsewhere…
man, you’re probably wondering how the heck they do it. In France, the average eating time is 135
minutes a day. In Turkey, it’s 162 minutes. Even in Japan, where people work far longer
hours than in the US, they still manage to put aside 117 minutes a day for chow. The only other countries to spend as little
time eating are Canada (72 minutes) and Mexico (under 70 minutes). This is probably to do with both the American
hard work ethic and fast food culture, which prioritizes productivity over relaxation. The same can be seen in a related statistic
on cooking times. Nowhere else on Earth do people spend as little
time cooking each day as in America. 1. Government Departments Have Official Advice
for Reporting Elvis Sightings One of the things foreigners know about the
US is that it’s full of wackos seeing wacko things. There’s a reason The X-Files was so popular
20 years ago. But it’s one thing to hear about guys filming
shaky footage of Bigfoot on their cell phone. It’s another entirely to hear that actual
US government departments have official advice for reporting Elvis sightings. Here, for example, is a link to the Federal
government’s official website for copyright. Hover your mouse over the link. See that it ends .gov? It’s impossible for anyone not representing
a government entity to register a .gov address. This site is legit. It’s part of the Federal government, and
paid for by taxpayers’ money. And it includes official advice on how to
copyright your sighting of Elvis. This isn’t a joke section put up by some
lighthearted bureaucrat indulging a whim. It’s completely, mind-bogglingly serious. Which means the government was getting deluged
with enough requests about Elvis sightings that they went to the trouble to post official
advice about it. OK, say it with me now, altogether: only in
America.

  2. @ 1:41 "u.s. toddler have shot, on average, 1 person a week, including themselves for the past 2 years. Even war zones don't have that." The moment you realize you didn't misunderstand how sad that was.

  3. The US Navy Moto is "never give up the ship", coined by a caption who's crew surrendered that same battle.

  4. While many Americans have not traveled abroad Americans do travel more miles every year than Europeans. There is a lot to see within our borders.

  5. Doesn't this video deserve a top ten things that the world loves about America? Things like our money when we give it away, our military when they need it, our technology when they steal it, or our music when they imitate it? By the way, that flag on the moon ain't no Union Jack. I am an American, born and raised here. I am in the most blessed "4%-5%" group of humanity that has ever lived. We have our problems and backward ways but most of the world long to be part of us. 😉

  6. errr i am pretty sure the picture at 10:13 is Sydney Australia, cos i have been to that KFC and the traffic light is on the left hand side of the road, which cannot be America since people drive on the right side.

  7. I'm American, moved to England aged 10, learned to dislike my country, am now 27 and still in Britain. I haven't wanted to move back to America as much as I do having now watched this video. I miss my weird, wacky, wonderful country…

  8. This video is flagrantly misinformative, inaccurate and inflammatory. I’ll be sure to avoid this channel like the plague.

  9. European countries and UK get to travel very cheap and get subsidy for trips , the United States pays full price for travel and the cost of hotel and travel is extremely expensive

  10. As for his passport ownership in Europe you do realize that many countries they are for the size of our states and we go from one state to another we do not need a passport

  11. What's amazing to me about the whole travel thing is how uniquely culturally diverse american think their country is. If you want a uniquely diverse country, you should look at russia, India or China. Russia has 22 republics most of which have unique national dresses, languages, traditions, history's and wide ranging religions.

  12. A study was done a few years ago for all NATO countries.

    USA was the most religious. Had the lowest morals highest crime rate worst education worst healthcare and about 30 years on technoligy behind the rest of NATO.

    There is more guns in the USA than there is people. on avarage there is 10 guns per person lol.
    ur more likely to get shot in the USA if u have a gun.
    1st thing any criminal will do during an armed robbery is look and see who is carrying a gun and take them out 1st. Then they take the gun as a backup.
    So the more ppl carrying a gun the more guns the criminals will get hold of.

  13. In Short….He goes out of his way to Bash America however…..He also in a Fruedean manner Boasts about it.. So from his liberal pea Brain he is Jealous. Why Because the U.S. Is the Great Country on the Planet. And he knows it.

  14. 7. It's a very big country with a wide range of urban and rural environments and subcultures, as well as of climate conditions. An American from Oregon or Washington, Massachusetts or Ohio can vacation in California, Florida or Arizona the same way British people do [wallet size permitting] in southern France, Tuscany, Spain or [until recently] Turkey. I hear Morocco may have replaced Turkey. Why would ordinary people need a passport most of their lives? You're not going to tell me your typical Brit or German is a full-on cosmopolitan member of what used to be called the jet-set. I know better. They are just more likely to have needed a passport much of modern times.

  15. 4. It can be a bit boisterous by most country standards. My own Canada has a more subdued manner but we have our own snotty, passive aggressive way of asserting superiority that I find as tiresome. Mileage varies. On the whole, one's patriotism for one's own country ought to be something one does not need to self-identify. Since in so many countries it has been diluted down to almost nothing, I'm glad the Americans are keeping it up.

  16. 10. More flippant, but still- Ideally, it's one of their parents. The level of security needed to keep a gun out of the hands of a toddler is not great. Being shot by one's toddler would be just reward. Once they get much older, rudiments of gun safety become more teachable.

  17. Your delivery on these "American" videos makes it seem that you really don't care for America. And, you think we are stupid. Too bad because I like your content.

  18. I'm proud of my country (The Netherlands btw) but nowadays it's considered racist to be proud of your country and it's history over here. Moreover you're obliged to have a passport or ID-card (which is sort of the same thing) in the Netherlands. And third of all I would be happy to defend myself against home invaders with a gun (over here when a burglar is in your home, you have to ask him politely to leave or else you'll be the one approaching the bench). So America doesn't sound like a bad place to be all considered.

  19. 10. Not surprised 9. Horrible 8. Well, isn’t that screwed up. 7. Wow! I’m not in that crew, wanting to get a stamp. 6. I so don’t even belong in the States, really! 🙃😉. 5 Huh, WHAT!, 🐵🙈🙉. Oh…. Alabama and Mississippi well ok.👀 .4. That annoys me. Maybe I don’t belong here, maybe it’s because I’m not a believer in all that it’s says and how I’m really treated. 3. What no one told me that was a sport!? Bit? Well they came from Europe soooooo….2. Hey, I didn’t see Chick-fil-A! Was I summiting to the hoopla? I eat at home, mostly. 1. Really? Really! This is a thing? Oh I’m bound for another county. Who will take me?

  20. I have viewed many of your vids over the years & remain amazed no one has EVER challenged you with respect to the manner & reason why you present these "FACTS" in the manner which you do. Sadly, governments, schools and certainly the media at large has adopted this approach with the objective of controlling the narrative of the subject matter. I will go so far with the MSM & state as a whole are no different than the German propaganda ministry of Joseph Goebbels. I only emphasize to this degree due to stating these FACTS are for EDUCATIONAL & entertainment purposes. Proclaiming these FACTS to be used for educational purposes should be removed or should be stated with emphasis at the onset of each video for reasons I'll share below. There is no doubt presenting subject matter in the manner the media and you do is both clever & effective…but also wrong! By presenting FACTS, validated by references/sources in such a subtle manner..with extremely limited perspective or view of the subject manner is the very essence of propaganda or pushing an agenda or an objective upon the masses or a casual viewer. This type of "FACTUAL" presentation is why the MSM in the USA, in particular, is no longer respected, trusted or relied upon for non-biased fact-based information. Entertaining to some…for those who view this channel & other mediums for educational purposes…who have their assumptions & perceptions transformed into absolutes from which definitive conclusions are based have become the majority of people, unfortunately. Ironically, these are people groups, entities who are the loudest & first to place condemnation on another/others as being biased, prejudice &/or ignorant…For these reasons, IMO, these FACTS are presented for entertainment ONLY and not for educational purposes…If you proclaim these are for educational purposes then stating such is intellectually, morally, ethically dishonest due to the subject matter being presented a manner which leads to people being misled, misinformed and/or manipulated. I will provide 3 examples…2 from this video.

    1) The USA ranks 3rd globally in crimes/violence involving fire-arms (guns). Your FACTS are accurate yet completely misleading. I would argue having an accuracy of 99.9% would never be considered inconsequential to any rating or ranking system or subject matter. HOWEVER, in the USA there are more than 10,000 cities nationwide. By removing LESS THAN 1/2 OF 1% or 0.04% of cities from this data changes the narrative completely…I will go so far to say a paradigm shift would occur if FACTS BASED ON TRUTHS by having a broader perspective, taking specific FACTS into account or placing in CONTEXT. By REMOVING JUST 6 CITIES from the list which compromise more than 10,000 CITIES the
    USA drops from 3rd most violent/dangerous countries in the world to one of the safest…in fact, the different organizations which you reference also validate THESE REAL-LIFE/RELATABLE/IN CONTEXT FACTS….USA RANKS 186th out of 189 FOR GUN RELATED VIOLENCE IF REMOVE JUST 6 CITIES…ALL 6 CITIES ARE DEMOCRATIC STRONG-HOLDS WITH EXCESSIVE GUN-CONTROL LAWS IN PLACE… THIS IS THE REAL USA…THIS IS NOT A LASER FOCUSED/TUNNEL VISIONED "FACT" INTENDED TO MISREPRESENT AN ENTIRE COUNTRY!
    2) College Football Coaches salaries: Although the Coach you referenced leads the Football program of my University's biggest rival & considered the most bitter rival in the country….the fact he is paid $6-9M USD/yr is a fraction of the HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS his presence generates…an old adage of "have to spend money to make money"..more power to him. NOT A SINGLE PENNY IS TAKEN FROM ANY OTHER DEPARTMENT WITHIN THEIR UNIVERSITY TO PAY THEIR COACH…THE UNIVERSITY I GRADUATED FROM (LONG AGO) PAYS OUR HEAD FOOTBALL COACH ~$4-6MUSD/YR…MOST are GENERATED FROM PLACING A COMPETITIVE TEAM ON THE FIELD WHICH BRINGS FANS TO FILL UP STADIUMS AND NATIONAL TELEVISION NETWORKS TO PAY MILLIONS FOR THE RIGHTS TO TELEVISE THE CONTEST…YET, NOT A PENNY IS TAKEN FROM OTHER DEPARTMENTS…WITHOUT THESE PROGRAMS, DONATIONS WOULD NOT OCCUR, STADIUMS WOULDN'T BE FILLED, NETWORKS WOULD NOT TELEVISE THE TEAMS GAMES…THE MONEY GENERATED ALSO FUNDS DIRECTLY UPWARDS OF 20 OTHER NON-REVENUE GENERATING SPORTS MOSTLY FEMALE SPORTS…THIS IS THE REAL COLLEGE ATHLETIC REALITY IN THE USA
    3) I will provide a headline "above the fold" or on top of a news outlets homepage…2 HIGHSCHOOL WHITE GIRLS ACTIONS LEAD TO DEATH OF BLACK MAN…What would the story/article under this heading read? What did they do to cause the death of this man… the color is irrelevant but in the US/Globally seems to have a specific ideology or skin color does bring emotional components to a story or incident which otherwise may not be so climatic so to speak. Nothing stated is untrue…THESE ARE FACTS…I can provide references, countless articles, etc…of course no media had such a heading…yet, this is an example of how a tragic real-life story could be misrepresented by stating FACTS in a manner to serve an agenda other than the truth…I used this example with my employee's when gossiping, assumptions and unfounded accusations were being made about another employee…I told my staff to write the story they believe goes with this headline or FACTS…I received everything from the 2 girls seduced the man, robbed him and killed him to other assumptions worst than that. THE FACTS- these 2 "girls" are my cousins…After school, they would drive to their mom's small boutique to help her in the afternoons. One day as they walked inside a man was rushing out and ran by both knocking one down as he fled…scared them…as they called out for their mother they slowly walked around a counter to find their mother bludgeoned to death on the floor..in a pool of blood…out the trial they gave eye-witness testimony in an emotionally horrific situation with this POS murderer seated feet away…The judge stated it was their testimony, the 2 girls (happen to be white) which lead the Judge to honor the jury's recommendation for this monster to be sentenced to death…He eventually was executed…These 2 girls did nothing wrong–they witnessed the man who had just killed their mother…my Aunt!!!
    So, facts can be facts….HOW THE FACTS ARE PRESENTED DICTATE WHAT CONCLUSION VIEWERS ARE LEFT WITH…IF THIS IS EDUCATIONAL THEN SUPPLY CONTEXT AND NOT BIASED, AGENDA DRIVEN INFORMATION PLEASE….

  21. Of course so many Americans are patriotic. Why wouldn't they be? 52% is painfully low. 5% of French and German citizens think their country is the best on earth? Yah, because America. Seriously though, being patriotic has nothing to do with thinking your country is the best and everything to do with simply loving it. I've been to Italy, Germany, and France. They have a lot to be proud of.

    But that leads me to the second point, that most Americans don't have a passport. So? They don't need one. I'm from Utah and I've literally spent months of my vacation (holiday) time in California, Wyoming, Idaho, and Nevada. I've spent weeks in Washington, Colorado, but Arizona. I moved to New York for two years. We have every climate except tropical rainforest and temperate rainforest in Utah. California has temperate rainforests. I want to rent beach houses in Florida, Washington, The Outer Banks, and Long Island. It's 60 miles from the lowest point in North America, Death Valley, to the highest point in the contiguous United States, Mt. Whitney. I could never leave Utah again and have an enjoyable, fulfilling life. And here's the thing: I can do all that without exchanging currency or buying a travel adapter for my electronics. My last flight cross country from SLC to Orlando, Florida was longer than my flight from Amsterdam to Athens, and SLC is almost 1:30 from the coast by airplane. With limited vacation time (compared to Europe) and so much to see (and so many places to see again) I totally understand why half of Americans have never left the country. Heck, my first night out of the US was in 2015 when I went to Canada, another place I need to visit again.

    Edit: I've heard that only 3% of French people vacation internationally each year. Staying home "on holiday" isn't unheard of, even in Europe.

  22. A lot of those (premarital sex illegal) are known as Legal Fossils, laws on the books but no longer enforced.

  23. Regarding Americans traveling: Neil Gaiman said that (paraphrasing): England is a place where 100 miles is a long distance and America is a place where 100 years is a long time.

  24. Why does not this stupid Brit list 10 weird laws that are still on the the British books..my ex British girl friend could list them…

  25. Trust me this stuff doesn't make sense to atleast half of us either. And from what I've seen, the younger generation (minors) seem to be on that page as well. This next election will probably be the deciding factor on just how divided and bad it's gonna get here

  26. no one wants to go down hill in rights and go to canada or mexico why would a us person want to loose all the rights and get jailed

  27. Fast food is the norm and we are surrounded by fast food just about everywhere. I need to mentally stop otherwise I will start putting on weight and getting sick.

  28. We may have the best doctors, but the worst access. People here go bankrupt because of illness. That happens nowhere else in the civilized world. I would love to travel abroad, but I can barely afford my rent.

  29. Bestiality is officially against the law in Ohio, in fact it became illegal one day prior to this video being published.

  30. -Toddlers … It puzzles most of us here *
    -Bestiality … It puzzles most of us here *
    -Coaches … Not puzzling at all, income is generally
    -Much of the middle class can not afford foreign travel and also … USA is a big country , could spend a lifetime exploring it.
    -Can't speak to the medical one … other than they are more adverse to the paperwork, tho most of what used to be called the "middle class" is struggling.
    -Rapist Rights … It puzzles most of us here *
    -Patriots – Usually an excuse for bad behavior. Americans love believing their No. 1 in everything … which has not been true for a long time. It's kinda like wearing your college football team's sweat shirts.
    -Lived in NYC … never saw a rat … not heard of a person biting another over the age of 6 *
    -That's cause everyone is trying to survive. Too much else to get done.
    -Elvis Sightings … It puzzles most of us here *

    * not so puzzling below the Mason Dixon Line

  31. Yet in other other countries, you can go to prison for referring to someone by a gender that the person doesn't identify with.

  32. I don't know where you found this trivial nonsense, it does not define American culture in the least, and probably is unknown to most people here. Trying too hard to impress, dude. Save the posh mannerisms for something more useful.

  33. In defense of number 6 it is better to die with money than extend your life and be poor throughout cos you're paying off that fibroids op. And number 5; you're being gynocentically biased. Why is it "brave" for a woman to give birth to a baby that will look like her attacker, but for the attacker to get custody of a kid he's obliged to help pay for, that's the insane part???

  34. Travel averse? Heck. Alaska to Miami. The Golden Gate Bridge to the Appalachians, the Upper Peninsula, to historic Charleston, the Alamo to Vermont, Phoenix to Glacier NP, the plains of Nebraska to the islands of Hawaii… there's sooo much to see without going abroad! I can understand a Brit getting sick of being stuck on an island, but we've got a HUGE backyard!

  35. that health care thing is misleading….I do not chose money over health care I do not have enough money to pay for health care…..not having the $25000 for the treatment is not the same as avoiding the treatment because I am cheap

  36. well i can tell you that a lot of the time the weird laws sticking around is cause ether bills taking them off, changing or other wise written also get other stupid stuff attached to them. normally budget things or other changes to other things that are just pointless or stupid that the whole point of the bill gets buried and they end up regretting it.

  37. I live in New York City. Guns are banned in New York City. Essentially the 2nd Amendment doesn't exist in New York City.

  38. Besides the passport, patriotism, and health care, nearly every fact is over exaggerated and you should probably do more research.

  39. I want to see facts, I don't want some supposed British bald guy who is obviously a liberal POS(Probably from the Tribe of the Knows) to tell me that "Guns are BAD mmmkay!"

  40. Bonus fact: America is a continent, the united states is a country. Canada calling itself North America would be more accurate than the states calling themselves America

  41. All of the goofy loons with their American flag buttons, hats, swimsuits, shirts, and underwear will not like this video.

  42. What’s wrong with beastality?
