I saw this one Buzzfeed video about Aussies and Brits asking Americans questions. Does anyone here have legitimate questions for our American forum-goers? I'm here to answer them. Kilos will probably see this thread and give his two cents, as well.

Is there really a McDonald's everywhere?

There's McDonald's everywhere, not just the States. That said, there's more in the U.S. than other places.

Is everyone fat and stupid?

There are an absurd number of fat people in the Midwest. Some virulent strains of communicative idiocy, as well.
Edit2: funny story, I'm in Hungary right now, and I think the fattest person I saw today was from the Midwest - he probably doesn't even think he's fat, just because of the number of much-fatter people he grew up around.

Do you see famous people every day?

If you live in L.A., and hang out in the right places, you might see some famous actor. I lived there for 3 months, and didn't knowingly see anyone famous. Other places, there are fewer famous people.

Does everyone have a gun (or two)?

Many people have guns, and if somebody has one gun, they're likely to have another.

What do most people think about Mexicans?

Mexicans in the U.S. are hard-working, often hard-drinking, usually friendly, frequently speak minimal English (even in customer service jobs, depending on what neighborhood you're in).
Mexicans in Mexico are obviously all drug-smuggling, child-sex-slave-pedaling, ultra-violent psychos (almost as bad as Muslims). Edit: except for the ones who work on resorts, of course.

Most high school people are ignorant of all history before 1775, and even then they're pretty retarded about it. Ask the average person who Hammurabi is and they'll probably scream terrorist at you or look uncomfortable. Depends on if you're in the city or a real rural area.

Just gonna answer another question before it's asked :
Yes, a shit-ton of us listen to a lot of garbage country/pop/R&B music (rock's been doing good though), especially people who live in suburbs or in the city who like to act like cow people but actually work a 9-5 and have never fished or hunted a deer in their life (not saying i have, and i don't know how you could assume that: i am using the Internet after all.). It's kind of sad, especially considering that 5/6 of all "country" musicians are failed rock'n'rollers and to be fair a lot of the instrumentation in country songs is good/decent if not repetitive/similar/cliche. I mean, we could be having a nice renaissance in rock n roll music, but instead we get some hillbilly bs omfg I'm so angry.

Is there really a McDonald's everywhere?


McDonald's is certainly the most popular fast food joint in the States, for whatever reason. What's really crazy, though, are the Starbucks. They're everywhere!

Is everyone fat and stupid?


No. I think the latest number of "overweight" people is 38%. However, the way the US measures what they call obesity is retarded, as they use the BMI (Body Mass Index). If you are 1.67m but you are ripped out like you never skip physical endurance day, congratulations, the US counts you as overweight.

Do you see famous people every day?


No.

Does everyone have a gun (or two)?


Many people own guns. If a person has one gun, they typically have more than that one. I don't know if people know this, but the people with 5+ guns aren't the people that need worried about, they just like guns, or like having a selection for hunting.

What do most people think about Mexicans?


If you are legal and can speak English, we don't give a shit.

Is it true you have so much freedom you can't dry your washing outside?


No.

What you opinion on America? Great or a shallow shell of its former self?


While I think that it was better in the past, I will say that I wouldn't live in many other countries.

What about American Armed forces and foreign policy? Acceptable for gains in influence? Impressive and needed? (TEN PLUS CARRIER FLEETS CHOO CHOO)

(America does have a hell of a navy though rip rip TRN)


The general consensus is that the American people do not want boots on the ground in or anywhere near the Middle East ever again, for better or for worse. I don't think influence is what is on the minds of the people, that's more what politicians think. We tend to have no opinion on it. We want to keep the strongest military.

Does anyone believe that "Good America vs Evil East" propaganda?


After all the shit that's been happening with Russia lately, I do believe many of us have reverted to not liking Russia, or Putin. I do not think that we think of all the East as "evil." We don't like China, Russia, or North Korea. That's about it.

Do brawls occur often in public places?


No, although you hear about them on the news more than you'd like.

Are people generally ignorant of significant historical and political events/persons outside their country?


We tend to know only who and what we need to know. Plus, since we are stranded in the middle of nowhere with an ocean on either side of us, we don't really get any news that is not controlled by the western media, especially since the US is a big source of it. I know Putin, Assad, Nyaho, and Markel. If you are talking about significant people and events that happened in the past, then that's a different story, but that's just me.

Are high school kids getting stupider and lazier?


Yes. I am a fine example of it. Not dumber, just lazier, although I do get all my work done on time. It has to do with a little bit of how good/bad teachers are, and a lot a bit of how parents suck at parenting. You cannot raise a hand against a child legally, for anything. If your kid figures this out, he can become a shitbag of a person, and nobody has the power or respect in his eyes to stop him.

America might have more freedom than the UK, but is your healthcare free?


No. Obamacare is a fucking joke. My family's health insurance cost didn't go down; it doubled.
Private healthcare is a fucking joke. I am not going to have any money to spend on healthcare when I am retardedly paying to go to college, only I have to because of fucking Obamacare, else I'll get "taxed" (it's actually a fine, which is illegal, but the Supreme Court that Obama has wrapped around his finger would tell you otherwise) for not having money to pay for healthcare.

Are you people actually caring about all the gun violence?


Yes, we do care, but nobody can meet in the middle on what we should do about it. You have people on one end of the spectrum, saying "If kids can be properly brought up by actual parents, this shit wouldn't be happening." On the other end, you have people who say "If we take the guns away, there won't be guns to commit crimes." Both of them are stupid.

Does anyone still build cars in Detroit?


My cousin works for Ford in the city, so they are still being manufactured there.

How many people in the US know that there is more than 1 country in the world?


Every single person old enough to comprehend what a country is, knows there is more than one country in the world. The "Americans are terrible at geography" stereotype is one that annoys me.

Anyone who wants to ban our own history can go die for all I care. No flag should be banned.

Worship and praise are two very different things. I am a Christian, as is my whole family, aside from my elder brother, who is atheist. We don't worship anyone. We praise.

never heard of it. although I wouldn't be surprised if no of them knew countries farther then Germany.

    Do brawls occur often in public places?

In bars yes. other than that not really, most people fight in neighborhoods.

    Are people generally ignorant of significant historical and political events/persons outside their country?

yes

    Are high school kids getting stupider and lazier?

depends what you call stupider and lazier. They get the same amount of knowledge it just matters how important that knowledge is. In my opinion they aren't that lazy.

    Are you people actually caring about all the gun violence?

well yes, it just that there are different solutions: to get rid of guns, and let people carry around guns so that someone that wants to shot someone he'll probably get shot in the process.

I wouldn't say we're getting lazier. At schools in my area the sports departments continue to expand and more variety comes in. I'd say stupider, in that we know what a lot of things to do, but not why they do it or how it all works. It sucks because many don't come to terms with their stupidity, so they are bigger idiots for it. It took me a while to come to terms with how little i knew.

No, the war wasn't about racism, it was about state's rights, plus the slave's race was circumstantial. They were black because they were being sold in Africa, BY AFRICANS. There were also native American slaves, one of which started the Salem witch trials.
