Things I Love from America

  1. Jul 22, 2005 #1
    Having dished out lots of criticism of America over the last few years, I thought it would be nice to have a thread to acknowledge the many wonderful things America has contributed to the world.

    1) Rock'n'Roll music.

    Thanks America!

    ...what I said is not an insult...

    It just means that people will have to think harder for something positive to say...

    I hate American fast food. I think that is one of the worst things to come from this country.

    Ha, well, they must have made it nice especially for export to the UK. In any case, short of several musicians who most will never have heard of, and Spongbob, I'm having a hard time thinking of much else! I'll get there, I'm sure.

    Is that the extent of what everyone has to say?

    There are a lot of things that have come from America...I guess I will have to help...

    Lets start with....
    The internet? Does anyone like that?
  23. Jul 22, 2005 #22
    Internets, is the correct term.

    What about Porn videos? I would say that we have to be good at those.
