Depends on how close you live to a hospital. Pizza joints are more evenly distributed than hospitals. The same thing happens in any country. You should be happy you even have access to a hospital - if something were to happen to you.

Not all handicaps keep people from performing physically.

Regular exercise helps strengthen an individual's immune system, and it is especially beneficial to someone who is ill.

I've lived in Germany and Japan (and visited countless others), and greedy eaters are greedy eaters (with their imaginary "health" conscious side - hence, the "diet" drink with all the crap) - it isn't ONLY iN AMERiCA.

It depends on the bank (this isn't dependant upon the country), but if those pens weren't chained down, don't you think there would be an awful lot of missing pens?

I've seen plenty of useless junk stored in peoples' garages in other countries, with nice cars out front. But, generally speaking, people in most countries don't have the privilege of owning a house - let alone a garage. So who cares what the garage is used for?

I've seen people do this in other countries as well.

Sorry, but this one can't be used anymore. It's been possible to buy buns in packages of 10 for many, many years now. I'm guessing you don't do shopping yourself?

I'll give you that one. But politics are politics, it doesn't matter which country you're in - politicians will suck the blood right out of you.

Sorry, but I can find braille lettering on ATMs and other things in many other countries. Not everyone is born with the gift of sight - or are able to continue using it throughout their whole life.


The point is: generalizations only make individuals look ignorant. Everyone does it (including me), but the more you point it out to people, the less and less (hopefully) they do it.

Anyways, country bashing is getting old. The fact is, America has some good things, and it has some bad things; however, people also forget that it is the same way in just about every country of the world. Some countries are better than others, some worse than others, but the truth is: not one country can truly claim (and prove) to be the best - they all have problems.

I didn't notice it was in the "Joke, Puns, & Pranks" section. In any event, I took it pretty literally simply because I have seen that type of stuff posted in so many different sections on this site - I guess I felt like being contrary to what was said.

I'm sure there are some people who thought alias101 was being serious as well. :-) It is funny though.
