Being out of the country has made me realize how stupid we are in the U.S. sometimes.

I mean nearly the whole entire rest of the world calls soccer – football. Not to mention the fact that only Americans like American football. I agree with the rest of the world, it’s a stupid sport.

Also something you probably didn’t know, in South America and England…I can’t speak for the other countries they write their dates dd/mm/yyyy while we write it mm/dd/yyyy. Does any other country do that?

And of course there is our system of measurement. Inches, feet, pounds…while everyone else uses meters. Fahrenheit versus Celsius.

And schooling. I swear, the U.S. has one of the most fucked up systems of getting an education. So many other countries help their students go to school by paying them or giving them some type of stipend. (See Denmark and Australlia) Others have free public universities. (See Argentina, the school I am going to) Yet most of the people in the U.S. who have to go to college have to pay ridiculous amounts of money and end up in debt most of their life. It’s not even like we have the best schools in the world or the smartest population.

And as Amelia says, we don’t drink enough money.
