Most people in America are fond of beef hotdogs topped with mustard, served with a 32oz soda.

- You either live in a mansion or a slum.
- As said above, love of red cups.
- You have some strange unspoken history with the Greeks? I dunno, your uni's seem to give that impression..
- Very politically active (like, shouty active) as I hear more Americans complaining about politics than any other country... more so than actual 3rd world countries lol
- Good career prospects for medicine and law students (law in the UK isn't all that good if you're in a crap area)
- More healthy drinking culture than the UK, teens in the UK get overly-gassed when they hit drinking age
- Opposing the above, less healthy drug culture in the US (specifically weed) where you guys get gassed at 21 (or whatever it is)
- Worse looking cars, apart from muscle cars where you guys have the worlds best - they look fire.
- Much higher salaries in normal terms, how that compares when factoring the currency difference, you probably still are higher.
- The West (California) speaks for the whole US as far as the rest of the world hear, we rarely hear about places like Colorado and Oregon unless there's like a riot or smth. New York too occasionally.

This is a well OTT.

id say most Americans are louder then Brits and their is nationalism but a lot of it is just very different type of Nationalism to what the UK is used to. In general id say Americans are far friendlier & polite when compared to Brits.

American healthcare is far from appalling, in many respects its superior. It is just a much greater gradient of quality heavily impacted by financial accessibility to insurance. The education system is pretty mixed bag, again id refer to a much larger gradient of quality.

I think most Americans are probably net wealthier and happier then most people in the UK. The media here tends to focus in on extremes rather then averages. Most average people living in a suburbans area have a pretty good life in America and aren’t actually gun totting maniacs.

stereotypes
Understood, I just think it’s quite an extreme portrayal. That is not the stereotypical average American.

Although I do agree these things are perpetrated in British media.
