Don´t hate me because I´m American

Many of you here on VT are from The United States, but many of you are obviously not..
The negative things about America are pretty obvious..
Let´s think about some of the positive things shall we.. This is coming from someone that has been in every state in the continental United States, even the ones that no one wants to go to..

*you can get almost anything
*nearly every kind of land form, and climate on earth in one country
*despite the airport security, really quite good to foreingers
*you can get a job without speaking English
*Despite what some of you may think, 24 hour stores are a very good thing.
*Well paved roads, and many of them into the middle of nowhere.
*Toilet paper in public restrooms is the norm! So are sit down toilets
*Ethnic neighborhoods still exist, and thrive
*Really good video stores
*We don´t dub movies
*In my opinion, the best place to eat in the world... if you´ve been to New York, you understand. anything and everything is there.
*We try to recycle, and most people don´t just throw garbage in the street, or out their window. yeah because they could get fined.
*Many many jobs, although many of them bad... still jobs
*second hand stores!
*really big washing machines and dryers, that work fast!

If you think of other things add them.

Everything is HUGE

After living in Spain, I am visiting America again and realize how HUGE everything is.
Food, roads, cars, people, stores...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Big, you can get almost anything, and its open 24/7
  • Cons:Big, cold (people and some regions) you pay for everything.
  • In a nutshell:Love it or hate it, its not going away.
