A semi-arrogant "big kid on the playground" way of thinking, the feeling to let everyone know what you do every second of every day, Texas(oh wait texans consider Texas it's own country), a constant clash of cultures that leads to strife, probably (if not) the highest murder rate in the world, a don't give up until you get what you want attitude, I could keep going but I feel I might go somewhere I shouldn't.

Geez, everyone's so negative in this thread. America isn't the perfect place, but not everything here is crap.

And what's up with number 9 on the original list? Is it trying to imply that handicap accessibility in front of a skating rink is stupid because handicapped people wouldn't go there? Well, maybe they wouldn't be utilizing the rink, but they could be someone's family member who's come with them to watch.

07: ...do people order double cheese burgers, large fries, and a diet Coke.
06: ...do banks leave both doors to the vault open and then chain the pens to the counters.
05: ...do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
04: ...do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.
03: ...do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.
02: ...do we use the word "politics" to describe the process so well: "poli" in Latin meaning "many" and "tics" meaning "bloodsucking creatures."
01: ...do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

WHAT AN AWESOME COUNTRY HUH?


Responding to a post from 5 years ago may be a bit....But since I never saw it when it first came up and it popped up again.

Ironically 01 is actually required by law. ADA compliance has actually gotten rather asinine. In fact, now if you don't have voice at that ATM you may be out of compliance. I know that if I was blind, I would not be getting cash out of an ATM. Not only would I not know if I got the right amount or what to do if the ATM lost it's mind and wouldn't return my card, but what if someone were watching me input my pin info so he could pull out more after mugging me and taking the cash and card. Besides, why would I be getting cash anyway? I wouldn't know if I would get correct change back from a transaction, and it would be difficult to keep track of what bills I had.

07: After you have had diet soda for an extended period of time, regular soda tastes like syrup - they're nasty. It costs the same amount or lower to get the meal up-sized than to get just a larger drink. Besides it's a huge hassle to get just the drink up-sized. "Yes, I want just the drink to be upsized". "I don't care that I can get larger fries for the same price, I just want a larger drink". "No, just a large drink, and medium fries" (under breath "How hard is that to get?"). "Umm, I asked for a large drink and medium fries, not a medium drink and large fries".
