FUNNIEST THING EVER

my favourite part:

they are asked who should they attack next for terrorism or something like that and they answer things like France, Korea, China etc.

They are then showed a world map and asked to put a flag on the country they said they than ALL put flags on Australia even though no-one said that XD

I was insulted when they asked "what currncey does the united Kingdom use" and some fucked up fat lady answeres " United Kngdom, whats that?"

Though that was funny it was bull.

I would bet you any amount of money that they skipped over quite a few interviews of people who knew basic knowledge, simply keeping the idiots on to further ask them questions that would only embarrass the American people more.

The same could be done with England; doing a street interview and asking relatively the same questions to roughly 100 people and finding 7 people who held no basic knowledge of events, currencies, coalitions, and even countries both current and past.

First, colonizing countries in the past in not a legitimate argument because the debate is called, " Which country is better - England or U.S.A?" notice the is. Also, England would have been toast if it were not for the supplies from lend lease and eventually troops that America provided.

Look, the U.S.A. is not a place you would want to spend your whole life. Many of America's most popuated cities have EXTREMELY high crime rates, at one time they had the highest obesity rate, they are at war CONSTANTLY, they usually elect the worst possible presidents, they have extremely high pollution rates (there are about 2 cars for every person), they have high taxes, and I was born in England!

It's a broad question, and 'better' is a subjective term which can be defined in many ways.

However, the USA is the cause of a lot a death and conflict in the world today, they butcher the English language, and most of the population are blind patriots, for whom any questioning of the greatness of their own country is blasphemy. That is why every in the world hates you.

Fair point, but only because of the stronghold that the USA has got on world politics.

And what is the distinction between 'butchering a language' and creating a new dialect?

The distinction is that the 'dialect' is now more widespread than the original language, not just in the USA but also in the various countries around the world that now learn American English.

Unfortunately I don't know enough Englishmen to make any kind of comparison. The United States does not have a monopoly on Nationalism.

Fortunately I do, I also lived a year in the States, and about a third of the people in my accommodation are American. I can tell you that blind patriotism is far more prevalent in the USA that in England. However, since I cannot provide any evidence for this other than my own experience; you, of course, maintain the right not to believe me on this point.

P.S Could you please tell me how to make text bold.

"And what is the distinction between 'butchering a language' and creating a new dialect?"

You haven't made any new words you have just shortened them to primitive sounds called "slang" and then forced them onto the rest of the world through "americanism"

"Unfortunately I don't know enough Englishmen to make any kind of comparison. The United States does not have a monopoly on Nationalism."

The totally ignore what good we have done for the world. The entire ocean would be like the coast of Somalia if the American Navy was not protecting everyone.

We could have easily won the war without you.You only joined when we were winning anyway.

I am always happy when someone sets Britain and U.S.A against each other on a debate, as we are "apparently" great allies.

The British Empire has been the biggest empire in all history we could have easily managed it and led the world into the next century. But unfortunately we got dragged into the world wars in which our armed forces were weaken considerably and our colonies followed the example of the U.S and revolted, so we just gave it up. At the moment I believe that we are a form of "retired" country who are waiting to step back in, but we have left the biggest mark on the world.

The United States after revolting were a decent nation, but moving onto the next millennium they have got worse and worse, they made a huge, fat, profit on the 1st world war selling things to of Europe, then failed to help us(their apparent "allies") when we were at out worst during WWII, then after we start to win they join us.(I don't know about the rest of you but I think that the U.S only joined the war to show of their weapons to Russia, pearl harbour is just an excuse) even when Japan started to surrender the U.S nuke their towns , not army bases or military airports, but towns.They have started things that have failed(prohibition, league of nations etc.) and now they have thrown away traditions and the valued ways of their forefathers for modern day junk, they then proceed to force this modern day rubbish on the rest of the world. I have seen many "americanized" places in England which I am disgusted by.

Your own fault. You know the history of empires. The military of Empires often become over-strained. Put you interest on too many fronts and your resources become spread too thin. If not for the rebellion of your colonies, your empire could have suffered the same fate of many past empires.

our colonies followed the example of the U.S and revolted

Yes, because of English tyranny.

failed to help us(their apparent "allies") when we were at out worst during WWII, then after we start to win they join us.

We didn't have a dog in that fight. We declared war on japan and Germany declared war on us, if not for the fact that German U-boats were killing American civilians we would not have had anything to do with Germany. Why do you think we were obligated to help you and yet where were the Englishmen when we were fighting the Japanese?

Hypocrisy!

pearl harbour is just an excuse

Yes, the death of 2,300 of our service-members, 1,100 wounded, the destruction of 180 aircraft, and the sinking of several warships was just an "excuse"...

You have the audacity to say this.

They have started things that have failed

And your country hasn't? What was that you said about blind patriotism again? Pot meet kettle.

We were culturally and industrially advancing the colonies of our empire(e.g railways all over India) I doubt they would want to rebel on people who are helping them. Also when i say dragged i literally mean that, we were pulled into the war because we were allies with France and Russia and Belgium, and because of the League of Nations which your country set up.

"Yes, because of English tyranny."

We were a democracy, I don't see where tyranny appeared.

"We didn't have a dog in that fight.

We didn't fight the Japanese because they were are allies in WWI, so in other words, you dont help us and then attack our allies.

"Yes, the death of 2,300 of our service-members, 1,100 wounded, the destruction of 180 aircraft, and the sinking of several warships was just an "excuse"...

and over 300,000 innocent japanese people died from your nukes, even though they were planning to surrender.

"And your country hasn't? What was that you said about blind patriotism again? Pot meet kettle."

I would like you to name some, here are a few of your country's failures:

League of Nations

Vietnam war

Top secret government cables that was published

The very recent oil spill, I cannot beleive you have the audacity to blame my country for something your american workers cocked up.

etc.

"Like monarchy."

I was meaning the basic morals you learn in childhood which your city culture has thrown away, you don't care about under-aged sex and even provide condoms for it, you have pollutted the air with extreme violence and pornography and replaced the world with new generation of rebel's.

This debate is really kind of silly, since it's a fair bet the vast majority of members here are American, which will skew the results horribly in the USA's favour.

As an Englishman who has been to the USA three times, I have nothing against America; indeed, I found the people to be quite friendly- but there are certainly some aspects of American attitudes that annoy me- the 'USA won World War II' thing, for example, is insulting not only to the soldiers of Britain who died, but to the Allied soldiers from Russia, Australia, Canada, various parts of Africa, and to the resistance movements in occupied territory.

Another major problem I have with the American mindset is the push to teach Creationism as a valid scientific theory in schools- the US has massive influence globally, and some states are encouraging a thoroughly unscientific mindset amongst their youth- the kids who will grow up to be doctors, and scientists, and teachers, and politicians. Whilst there is a worrying growth of Creationism in English schools, it is largely confined to private schools.

I would also dare say I would much rather live in a country where I do not pay through the nose for my healthcare.

In truth, I hold no ill will towards England or the United Kingdom. Our constitution is based on English common law. If not for the Brits my country would not exist. The united states was born out of British tyranny, although the crown in Great Britain was much fairer and less oppressive than many other rulers of the time.

In fact I rather admire contemporary Englishmen (and Brits). They are quite progressive as a people, and always have our back. I am jealous of their health-care system. Although their government seems to be a bit controlling. They gave us Simon Cowell. No complaints here, although that won't stop the banter.

Firstly all this about the us being able to invade us in six months is a lie. The uk may not have the biggest army but is stronger and better.

The U.K.'s Army is not stronger, the U.K.'s navy is not stronger, the U.K.'s special forces are not stronger, and the U.K.'s air force is not stronger. Additionally, the U.S. sends soldiers all over the world for training, and many allies send their soldiers to the U.S. for training. It is simply a smart way of allowing soldiers to obtain diversified, holistic training.

The uk has more allies and support. Where as every government hates the U.S. as well the uk and Europe could of easily one the war without you.

Where is your evidence that the U.K. has a higher number of security alliances? As for "the war", I am assuming you were referring to WW2, a war that was only won because of the U.S.S.R (a nation that Winston Churchill tried to go to war with after Germany's surrender).

Your the dumbest and most dangerous country Israel is safer.

First, it is ironic to say "Your the dumbest". Second, this is pointlessly hyperbolic. The United States is hardly the most dangerous (remember, North Korea, Pakistan, Yemen, Syria, etc all exist) nor the "dumbest" be it in terms of foreign policy, education, what have you.

And the only reason your independent is because we were at war with France and American land was worthless and useless

You are right about independence, we did indeed only become independent because Britain was bogged down in quite a few wars and became over extended. But North American land clearly was not worthless, which is why Britain settled here and fought for so long to hold to colonies.

Well, England has a longer history, used to rule the world, has a royal family, and is an island (which has it's advantages). But, the US was the fastest rising super power ever (well, that is until the Chinese over take us), we have more natural resources, and frankly things are just easier and better here (with the exception of Indian food).

The United States became a Superpower in about 169 years. 1945 is generally recognized as the date the U.S. became a superpower. Not the fastest, but certainly faster than many. By comparison the British Empire took about 260 to 340 years to reach it's height. The Roman Empire took about 90 years and the Mongolian Empire took about 88 years.

At my part-time job (if you consider 30 hours a week part-time), there is this guy, who we will call Todd. This isn’t just any guy; he’s from England. A bloody redcoat. A tea drinking mother fucker.

Now, usually I don’t have anything against people from England. (Although I do find it fascinating that I haven’t been to a dentist in years and I have better teeth than the bloody lot of them.) But I hardly knew Todd so I figured I’d see what he was made of. I wanted to push a few buttons to see how he’d react, too. So I asked him if he was still mad that England lost the war.

It took him a moment to realize I was talking about the Revolutionary War. He actually thought I meant some civil war. I didn’t know what the bloody hell he was talking about. That’s when he gave me a history lesson. He gave me England’s own version of the events that took place some 230 odd years ago. He informed me that the United States didn’t gain their independence from England until 1976.

Of course, that isn’t exactly how I remember it happening, and I’m sure you history buffs will agree. My 5th grade history teacher, Mr. Southem, said we kicked England out and declared our independence on the 4th of July, the 7th month of the year, 1776. (Although it should also be noted that Mr. Southem’s favorite joke was, “What’s the capital of Alaska? I know, Juneau?” so it’s hard to take anything he says too seriously.) What I do know is that we took all of their shitty tea and threw it in the Boston Harbor because we were sick of paying taxes. And now, instead of giving all of our hard earned cash to the King of England, we now give it to the King of Retards. Both named George, ironically.

Sorry if this brings back painful memories, but it's something you have to see, Redcoat.

Sadly, we’re still sick of paying taxes. According to Todd, the Queen of England signed the papers that gave the United States of America their independence on July 4, 1976. I find it fascinating that the rest of the world considers the United States to be the most arrogant country, and gives England a free pass. Seriously, how arrogant do you have to be to lose a war, then wait 200 years to acknowledge the fact that your opposition formed its own country, with its own laws, leaders, and government structure, completely separate from your own?

So, in honor of this new information that has come to my attention (that the United States has only been its own country for 31 years) I’ve decided to tell you why the United States is better than England.

Victoria Beckham isn’t a celebrity here. She’s just somebody’s wife. Which one was she again? Let me see. Sleepy, Dopey, Scary, Posh. I don’t think it even matters anymore.

We drive on the RIGHT side of the road. Todd did what every other person from England I’ve met does. He told me that WE drive on the wrong side of the road. I looked it up and about a quarter of the world drives on the left side. That means three-quarters of the world drive on the right side of the road. Majority rules, ya Brit. Right side of the road wins.

Football involves the Steelers, five Super Bowl victories (the most in NFL history), and Penn State Football. If it weren’t for “American Football” there wouldn’t be a Beaver Stadium and 110,000 screaming fans who probably consume more alcohol during one home game weekend than all of Europe does in a year. That last statement is outrageous and I have no actual evidence to support my claim, but it’s still probably true.

The U.S. was never taken over by anybody. Ever. Remember World War II? Of course you don’t, you weren’t alive. Well I have the internet and I looked it up. Germany successfully invaded England and occupied London. Winston Churchill was overrated. I think he might even have been an alcoholic, too. That is, if having alcohol for breakfast makes you an alcoholic. Thanks to the good ole U-S of A, England is still around to remind us all how we drive on the wrong side of the road.

Child pornography is illegal in the United States. Child pornography being what it is, it stands to reason that it would also be illegal in England, too. Right? Wrong. Elton John owns child pornography. Only instead of arresting him, the courts in England said it was fine. It was over some picture he had with two girls belly dancing, one of them naked. Although, considering it was a naked a picture of a girl, I guess maybe I get their point. It IS Elton John.

King Ralph. King Ralph was that movie starring John Goodman. It might be the shittiest movie I’ve ever seen. If you haven’t seen the movie (you’re lucky, you’re still going to Heaven) it’s about an American who is a descendant of British royalty that is the heir to the Royal thrown after the entire Royal family is electrocuted during a family photo. Outside. In the rain. England is just full of geniuses. Of course, conforming to British standards, King Ralph is a loudmouth, uncouth, slob from America with no social boundaries or redeeming qualities. And of course, you guessed it. Everybody in England is classy and sophisticated. They spend the entire movie trying to make John Goodman conform to British social standards. It’s complete nonsense.

So, here’s to you, Todd, you blubbering fool:

The United States of America is a teenage country, 231 years old with a big dick. Keep talking shit and you might end up fucked in the ass one day.

"....their independence from England until 1976"

thats a lie, Todd's a retard

"What I do know is that we took all of their shitty tea and threw it in the Boston Harbor because we were sick of paying taxes. And now, instead of giving all of our hard earned cash to the King of England, we now give it to the King of Retards. Both named George, ironically."

"I find it fascinating that the rest of the world considers the United States to be the most arrogant country, and gives England a free pass."

"Seriously, how arrogant do you have to be to lose a war, then wait 200 years to acknowledge the fact that your opposition formed its own country, with its own laws, leaders, and government structure, completely separate from your own?"

How pathetic do you have to be to go back 300 years to find a war you won on your own, and that was with a country 100th your size.

"We drive on the RIGHT side of the road."

We invented the road how can we drive on the wrong side of it?

"I looked it up and about a quarter of the world drives on the left side. That means three-quarters of the world drive on the right side of the road. Majority rules, ya Brit. Right side of the road wins."

That's just stupid logic: if loads of people got it wrong that means its right.

"

You, like many other americans, got football WRONG football involves kicking a ball with your foot.

if it wasn't for our "English football" there wouldn't be the Fifa World Cup thats brings millions of cash to whatever country is lucky enough to get it.

I remember this argument from when i first read it and god have you been lied to. The whole of Britain is laughing at your research fail XD

Ha, I thought we beat the number one military power in the world?

I guess that doesn't matter when your country is bigger right?

Unless you happen to be Russia.

Either way; to use the size of the United States is an idiotic argument when back 300 years ago the population of the U.S. did not match that of England, which makes your argument a pathetic one. According the the US Census Bureau in 1776 the population of the US was put at 2.5 million, that of England judging from two seperate sites have told me that in 1750 the population was put at 5.4 million; it only went up from there.

So your argument is that a country that had 100 times more land to cover beat another invading country whose population was over double the country with 100 times the land?

Makes England look pretty bad if you ask me.

We invented the road how can we drive on the wrong side of it?

Ha, good one.

Because you are the one's who go around blowing up towns with nukes.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki being nuked saved millions of lives, however it was an idiotic move as doing so breached the terms of war: we killed civilians. In actuality if we had taken to invade and conquer Japan it would have taken several more years to island hop until the deed was done, it would have cost millions of lives as the emperor would not have surrendererd until we were beating down the door to his palace.

Was the bombing a necessity? It could go both ways but I'm not going to delve into it any further as it would be pointless and end up in a totally different debate which has been addressed on this site many times before.

Historically and as a whole the US. This country has done more to further the natural evolution of man and our state of being than any country in history.

Recent history, England.

They've been on the correct side of most global debates in retrospect for the last couple decades at least, they've built their government so that they have a higher mean standard of living, live longer, have less infant mortality, and maintain actually more freedom if one discounts guns - but really you can hunt with a knife if it is truly for "sport". That said, as the political party that went along with Iraq lost power, it was replaced by one that thinks cutting student subsidies instead of bank CEO bonuses is smart - it is not. England isn't the shining example either.

As for "following" the US on the other side as one mentioned. They've placed undue trust in our government's intelligence, and the political party in power paid the price. The US went through 8 years of quickly spending its world trust, and we're about broke in that regard.

Luckily Obama is attempting to turn that around, and has done a stellar job restoring world opinion in a couple short years.

God forbid a Palin or Huckabee is elected next. We've worn most of the world's patience with this manifest destiny laced with weird religious fervor bs.

None of it was the founding of this country's intent. And one side of the political debate's continued ignorance of the US past mistakes only sets us back, it does nothing fulfill the potential.

there was no "greed of power" in our empire and even if there was we used it for good reasons.

"the small nation ruled the world and attacked usa but dont know what will happen if usa attack."

we have never "attacked" the United States we colonised North America and founded the United States, you then proceeded to be mean to harmless native americans to gain more land.

And I suppose the natives just handed you North America, because you were just so nice to them, yes?

PS. I would hardly call the Natives harmless.

You contradict yourself- we do not have a "greed of power". In recent years, if a country has voted to become independent from us, then we will let it. Hardly greedy is it?

The US rose up against England, you were the experts, but we won a war that was clearly not in our odds. Although, yes you do have a better economy, and fucking healthcare, so I can't beleve I'm doing this, but England would be the better choice.

I would like to ask English people this:

1) "do you really sip tea and eat crumpets?("crumpets" scrambled is "spectrum" is that what ur eating?)"

2)"when is teatime and do you really have it?"

3)"is July 4th an awkward day for you?"

4) "how do you learn about the American Revolution in school? do you even study it?"

and we are not stupid! we may be behind on math but we are ahead of EVERYBODY in reading. (and living) can you do math without reading the numbers? (or living)

I didn't think so!!!!

"1) "do you really sip tea and eat crumpets?("crumpets" scrambled is "spectrum" is that what ur eating?)""

Most traditionalists do, but it isn't a meal which we all eat.

"2)"when is teatime and do you really have it?""

the only people I know who still take tea are my grandparents and they have it around 5 o'clock

"3)"is July 4th an awkward day for you?""

No-one here really cares about July the 4th its just another normal day, I doubt the average chav would even know what happened that day.

"4) "how do you learn about the American Revolution in school? do you even study it?"

"

too be honest I don't remember studying it in depth, I think we might have had 1 lesson on it when we were studying the British Empire but all we are taught about it is that "the U.S revolted"

"and we are not stupid! we may be behind on math but we are ahead of EVERYBODY in reading. (and living) can you do math without reading the numbers? (or living)"

Maths opens more doors than English does. Also I'ld like to see proof about this statement.

1) no we dont all sit around and have tea and crumpets. we do ocasionally but for the adverage brit it isnt exactly every day.

2) if you do have it which most people dont, then its roughly 4:00 ish

3) no its just another day

4) not particuarly, we tend to stick to the more important historical areas. although i did stop history at my first oportunity so its possible that they do in higher levels of education. but other than that we only touch on it.

an that last comment is the one of the most stupid things ive ever heard. your better at maths but were better at reading, so therefore we must be better at maths????? seriously? think it through!

What are you ballshitting about? When we needed your help in WW2 you didn't give it and then you joined when we started winning! you have hardly helped us at all compared to the amount of times we followed you into war.

" or we might just flash the big middle finger to you fuckers and take you over ourselves,"

This makes me laugh so much, you couldn't even get to the other side of Vietnam and you think you can cross the Atlantic to get us XD.

"Don't bite the hand that feeds motherfucker, or that hand will pull down their pants and dick slap you bitches :)"

You haven't fed us anything apart from the Bigmac and we could do a lot better without that, we on the other hand have given you nearly everything that makes your country civilizd: Language, Religion, Names, etc.

No doubt, the U.S.A.

We have:

- separation of church and state (England does not, there is actually a state religion.. scary, huh?)

- separation from the monarchical regime that is England

- right to bear arms and form an armed militia if the need arises

- at the top of the list educationally, technologically, entertainment-ly, and every other aspect of culture and humanity

- multi-cultural

Lol, what cracks me up the most is that Brits actually pretend that they're progressive! Lol! They have a state religion and a monarch... Enough said...
