My country (Sussex) is better at hating parking meters than the USA
In the last 7 years 400 have been blown up in the capital (Lewes) with the ones in the High Street (Main Street) have been blown up 26 times in the same period with zero injuries.
So on the zero injuries I reckon that's proof we are also better at blowing up Parking Meters
I also think it proves we are better at having worse CCTVs as no one has ever been caught or arrested for the covert bombings.
Article from 2007 when the bombings reached the 200 mark.

A great topic OP.
But I'm betting it will turn into nationalistic drum beating any time now.....
I've not been to USA so only know what the media tells me. But US is such a big country, I expect the various states each have their own characteristics, good points and bad points and that people are different too. That also applies to the comparatively tiny UK. It peeves me that a lot of foreigners judge UK by London whereas the truth is that most of the population don't live there and there are also big differences in temperament between the different regions.

i think it's ironic that the first thing coming to mind if you say "Germany" is Autobahn, Beer and Octoberfest
But here is something serious, some food for thought:
European countries (and especially Germany) are VERY advanced when it comes to what we call renewable energies, alternative energies and so forth. Solar Energy, Wind Energy etc..etc.. There is a BIG industry and as far as i know Germans are amongst the world leaders in that area.
This is also where other countries, including the US are still somewhat lacking.
* I fricking love the fact that we are liberal and not having that morality complex like the US has. The US is a country where a "nipple-slip" can cause panic and outrage...where people in EU can only laugh
*What is better?* I don't like the stereo-types and say what things are better and what things are worse..but after having lived in the US for almost a decade i value VERY HIGHLY what we have in Europe:
