1. The coffee is stronger. (And better Smile)
2. Wine is cheaper than water.
3. Milk is usually sold with nearly 4% fat.
4. Europeans eat a lot of joghurt. And it is NOT fat-free.
5. In America you see a LOT more obese people.
6. Most boys throw like girls.
7. The cars are smaller.
8. Everyone knows who Rosa Parks was, but no one knows who Jackie Robinson was.

1. Indeed it is
2. Not everywhere in Europe! Still haven't found that bottle!
3. And it's great for cooking!
4. True, though even fat-free yoghurt is just as bad as its got aTON of sugar. Well it's good anyhow Smile
5. That's true too, though Europeans are catching up
6. I guess...never had time to practice, was busy with musicals.
7. They are but that saves parking space!
8. Characters in a daytime soap..?
9. Kinda yeah.
10. True...or about tuition-fee free universities

1. Yes. Yes, it is. And in Paris, there is an Espresso stand about every 30 feet.
2. And waiters can turn and pop a cork faster than I can turn a doorknob.
3. I would like to try it. Whole milk here (about 3.25% milk fat) is bottled with red caps, which psychologically says, "Stop!".
4. Most yogurt here is sweeter than pudding, and basically crap.
5. Americans are less likely to eat good food, and I think are geared to eating faster.
6. The visual image is great! Thanks for the observation. But, with the popularity of soccer over there (ok, football), the girls kick like men.
7. Ironically (see above), we have an over-abundance of soccer moms, who drive most of the large SUVs.
8. In Alabama, knowledge of both is a graduation requirement.
9. It is here too, for what you get. Maybe a better term would be "costly".
10. Here, everyone complains about everything.

1. The coffee served is smaller and not limitless. / The coffee is stronger. (And better ) have to disagree on that.
2. Gas is more expensive.
3. Eating in Restaurants is more expensive, including McDonalds.
4. Has a better rail / Mass transportation system.
5. More smelly people.
6. Wear tighter/more form fitting clothes. Not that I'm complaining
7. The guys wear their baseball hats without in curve in the brim.
8. Europeans have more vacation time.
9. Smoke more.
10. Has better stronger Beer.

Stone,
No one complains about socialized health care, because they're too busy complaining about America.

There has to be room for "People care about soccer" on the list.

Are there any black European heads of state, or is that just in racist ol' America?

"1. The coffee is stronger. (And better Smile)" I haven't been to Europe, but I can only assume you haven't had coffee made by an Air Force Survival Instructor Smile
"4. Europeans eat a lot of joghurt. And it is NOT fat-free." Me too! My favorite (though expensive here) is Icelandic Skyr (I know, not technically a yogurt, but very similar to Greek yogurt.)

Most common American complaint about Europe- Too many foreigners who can't speak English, so you have to talk to them slow and loud.

1. I don't drink the weak stuff so I'd REALLY hate the strong stuff.
2. Does that mean that wine is cheap or that water is very expensive?
3. I switched to fat free a couple of years ago so I'll bet the 4% would taste like drinking cream! (Not that that's a bad thing!)
4. What the hell is joghurt?
5. Very true. I'm sure I could blame some liberal policy on that but I'll refrain since Utah is very conservative and they certainly have more than their fair share!
6. Won't comment on this since I'll never think of a funnier response than mvmagic's.
7. Not a good thing.
8. We need a corallary. Who does everyone in Europe know that Americans don't?
9. Why would anyone eat their if it's expensive on top of the crap food???
10. Few people complain about something they 'think' they're getting for free.

Anybody else ever see that Southern American comic of Korean decent?
He has one of my favorite jokes where he introduces his Dad to somebody who does the slow and loud "Niiiice to meeet yooouuu."
His Dad asks what the person's doing and the comic says "She thinks she's speaking Korean." (I think it was a "she." Not important.)
I love that one. The heck was that guy's name?

Ask a waitress sometime what the biggest difference between the US and Europeans is. They'll tell you.

You are probably thinking of Henry Cho. I think there is a younger guy out there right now as well.

Two anomalies I observed in Europe:

1. The food was better in London than in Paris

2. We saw ZERO pastry shops in Paris, but one on every corner in London.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

"1. The food was better in London than in Paris "

LOL!

I've lived for extended periods in both places and things must have changed RADICALLY for this to be true.

No, just tens of millions of people, and more than voted the white guy. Or either white guy in the previous election. If a unanimous election in your yardstick, I think even Kambiz would agree that racism will never disappear in America.
