6. Forgetting that Britain and England are actually two very different concepts, and that when they mention Britain they usually mean England

To be fair if you watch any of England's matches, you'd think we don't either.

To be fair if they said "English" it wouldn't be as clear..

Yeah but you can do that with other cultures, especially english and scottish. Still doesnt prove anything at all though apart from some stupid belief that it makes your country superior (like a 10 year old would think lel)

We invented some of the best things though, that some people can't go a day without, like cable, cell phones, cigarettes, clothe hangers, the Flashlight, Fiberglass, Ethernet, ADOBE FLASH, the thing this site is about.

The list goes on.

I could take two very different perspectives on this:

1) Obesity
2) Gun Crime
3) 'World Police'
4) Being able to hear Americans 10 minutes before any other nationality when in a foreign country
5) Superficial friendliness
(and I could add being utterly overwhelmed by advertisement to the detriment of absolutely everything else, and drug cheating cyclists/athletes...)

Or:

1) American football (which I personally love)
2) Hollywood (though by no means all of it)
3) American TV (minus the commercials)
4) 'Freedom' (though this goes too far in some areas, and not far enough in others in my opinion)
5) Being big enough to have dozens of places that are worth visiting and entirely distinct from each other.

I'll leave it for you to decide which list was harder to write.

I'm not sure what's flawed about it. It makes sense to me and it's easy to convert units without having to grab a calculator first. Unlike if you had to convert feet to miles, etc.

Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (24 May 1686 - 16 September 1736) was a Dutch-German-Polish physicist, engineer, and glass blower who is best known for inventing the mercury thermometer (1714), and for developing a temperature scale now named after him.

Also, imperial units were originally British.

Regardless of who invented it or where he came from, it's still a very silly scale in my opinion. The reference points Fahrenheit used were rather arbitrary and the points got slightly readjusted later to make water freeze at exactly 32 F and boil at exactly 212 F (just because it happened to be approximately these temperatures in the old scale). In that case, using Celsius is more convenient if you ask me and the centigrade steps for Celsius also nicely coincide with the SI unit Kelvin's.

Wow this is full of hate. The world is going no where fast because of people all like you. You all focus on negative things. You stereotype and hate for no reason. If we ever wish to live past earth we have to come together and be peaceful. Space is waiting for us, with new wonderful things. Every person has their flaws. Their landmass doesn't define who they are. A person could easily turn around and hate on you for no reason. Also you are all just jelly because guns are awesome.

3.Invention of north and south Korea

That was China as well, we took the entirety of Korea but our hippy lovers made a deal with China instead of telling them "No, fuck you" and we agreed to split it.

I'm like 99% sure feet are needed to play football, or most sports in general.

Maybe I'm wrong.
