Typical American. A simple assumption that they are living in the best place in the world without a thought for the benefits of what is probably a much more idyllic country because of its more precious and healthier nature

But whatever " 'MURICA".

Maybe because of the better and wealthier lifestyle.

At least they don't shoot up a school about it.

These are anecdotal stories used by the Left to spread fake news.

British people die because of your waiting lists.

So many aspects of Britain are superior to the UK, including our healthcare system; education system; welfare system; travel network; TV, particularly our comedy; culture and multi-culturalism; our police don't need to be able to shoot people to do their jobs; and you guys even think your food is better just because you have access to a ridiculous amount of "take outs" and burger bars, when in reality the British menu is one of immense variety and culture.
I think your pic says it all about how secure you are in yourself/nationality.

I don't think anyone here is jealous of the USA unless they're from the third world.

This is coming from a Canadian.

I'm a proud US citizen and our houses are generally bigger, our cars are larger and more comfortable to drive; it feels like the general standard of living in the USA far surpasses that in the UK.
You're proud until you suddenly need healthcare and have to go absolutely broke to get treated. Or, of course, if you're already broke and can't afford to get treated then, sorry mate, but you're ****ed.

Our NHS is the best healthcare in the world and it's free.

That alone is a good enough reason why British people are not jealous of Americans but the list of reasons is very long.

Until the USA catches up with western Europe and actually implements some proper socialized health and welfare system I'm always going to prefer to live in one of latter countries.

Many Americans didn't want Obamacare because we were scared of our healthcare going British.

The ONLY thing i'm jealous of in the USA is that you have so many CHIPOTLE OUTLETS. We have 3 here in the UK, and they are all within a 3 mile radius of each other in London.

It sucks ahaha
On a Uni trip we drove past a Taco Bell :woo:

Is OP just jealous of Woody?

I'm a proud Woody and my arms are generally bigger, my pecs are larger and more comfortable to live in; it feels like the general standard of genetics in Woody far surpasses that of the OP.

If you're going to try and insult me, try using an insult that hasn't been used countless times already, maybe. If I was that insecure I'd have changed my avatar long ago

Americans must have bigger everything! Bigger houses, bigger cars, bigger egos, and let’s just scan over how much they’re into fast food and call a majority of them ‘big’.
I honestly feel sorry for whoever decided to make a statement declaring americans better than british

lol hell no! Those are only superficial things you listed, as long as we have a roof over our heads it's fine.

USA has Trump, you have to pay for anything medical related and university, in addition to university a lot more racial related injustices, legalises guns which has caused so much school shootings killing innocent children before their time and killings in general. USA have a huge problem with dealing with acceptance in my opinion.

The UK is so much more diverse and accepting of different cultures, I feel a lot of Americans, black, Asian etc. Find it hard to accept their backgrounds over there because of how people portray them in the media over there. I know a lot of black people over there who won't accept that they have African heritage, I'm black and I really don't see what's wrong with it.

Qualities of USA (that we are supposed to be jealous of? ROFL):

- **** healthcare
- Lots of fat people
- Lots of shootings
- Lots of racial tension
- Lots of broken and rundown cities such as Detroit, Baltimore
- Congress is corrupt as ****: they listen to the corporations paying them over the people they are supposed to represent
- Natural disasters in some areas
- High poverty rate
- *****y education
- Ridiculous student debt
- Stupid accents

The list can go on
