    I for one see Europe a little differently, unfortunately i cannot comment on their view of US, i can only imagine that they do view most of the US as gun slinging texans! Fortunately for them I am gun slinging so they wont be too far off!

    This may possibly be the laziest use of satire I have ever come across. If your gonna ridicule people for being stupid at least do it intelligently. I can`t speak for the other side of the Atlantic`s view of Europe, but why the feck would Europeans virtually the whole of the US was Texas?

    ... as one American that traveled to Europe recently. I didn`t see them like that at all. I enjoyed my trip and the people were friendly, helpful, and hospitable.

    But... The TX`ns I know will love the latter map.

    As far as the America one goes, (coz i`m from Scotland) All I know are the hick states to stay away from, the in between awesome states that you can chill in and the places like Los Angeles where you`d feel out of place in because you`re no 90% plastic and buffed

    I think you are missing the stereotype that Americans are a bunch of hicks. Thats the joke here. picking on American ignorance and stereotypical views of the western world...

    Of course now that I had to explain it, it kinda ruins the mood....Way to go....Schmuck

    Stupid. When have you ever met anybody who thought Iceland sunk the Titanic, or Israel was the entire Middle East? I have met people who think the entire Middle East was Iraq, Afghanistan, with a little room for "someplace called Ka-Wait or something like that". One of them was Canadian.

    I think it`s also a form of caricature, an exaggeration of a feature. In this case, ignorance and generalisation. Texas, or more accurately a collection of stereotypes associated with Texas, does loom large in how many people in the UK think of the USA. Big country, lots of space, loud people all of whom drive pickup trucks everywhere, guns everywhere all the time and fierce territorialism fully backed by a legal system that gives people carte blanche to shoot anyone intruding on their land without any questions asked. People know it can`t really be like that, but it`s a compelling image. With Calfornia (surfers and hippies) and New York (business people, lawyers and CSI) making up the rest.

    Hawaii - Grass skirts, surfing and oozy lava. Just off the coast of California, probably.

    Alaska - Ice. Polar bears. More ice. Also known as the north pole.

    That makes perfect sense. Every foreign tourist I`ve ever met immediately brings up Texas.

    And they seriously are picturing the western, cattle-wrangling cowboys in their head.

    And then they`re sorely disappointed when they get to Houston and realize that despite the giant rodeo every year, most of the place is a big urban sprawl full of people glued to their smart phones.

    Silly Americans. The North Pole is part of Canada, not Europe. I thought it would be obvious what with Santa Claus wearing Red and White, and the fact that he`s so nice he even gives gifts to the naughty children.

    I`d be surprised if many Americans could name half the countries in Europe...

    ok, granted, most Europeans probably couldn`t either (but would probably do better!)

    The irony of it all is most English people could probably name more American states than they could English counties!

    Pretty accurate though :)

    Why would anyone care about Europe? The continent`s existence on Earth is meaningless. No one there can get along, no unity, it smells like crap... Europe`s history is filled with things we wouldn`t want to teach our children. No dentists. Plague still readily available. Poor schooling. 70`s clothes...

    The leading countries of today were founded by Europeans desperately trying to get away from Europe. That says it all. Europe... you are a cesspool of embarrassment to the world. Go away.

Slagging eachother off is futile America is a big load of corperation-hypotized, industrialised, enchanted people who think everyone should live like americans do which is unsastanable. Europe has a rich history. Most originate from ancient times and we unlike our cousins are not in denial about the fact we stole our land from the natives and shat all over them. The american dream is over. Your country is as bad as everyone elses. FACT. And yes i know most europian and american countries.

    @catzypoo

    See, it`s the grouping of millions of people as a whole with a shared idea and mindset that is the basis of most arguments here.
    Are there some Americans that think everyone should live like them and, in some cases, have everyone become Americans themselves?
    Absolutely.
    But! Those are widely shunned and seen as crazy for trying to create new things when it, as you said, is unsustainable.
    We`re hemorrhaging a plethora of funds to keep our citizens happy, we know that. Plus, we`re in two wars we should never have considered being in, which is why people once more hate Obama. And there, again, are some who would like to give the opportunity to those who are not legally citizens to live like us.

    Those people are bleeding America dry like a slaughtered pig.

    Also, you`re idea of America`s schools is a little off, but scarily similar. But we still see it as better than shoving ideas that communism is a good thing down our future`s throat. <

    @DShepard; it isn`t communism in Ireland. And I don`t think communism can work bt I think everyone is entitled to an equal education system to third level AND that people are entitled to very good health care for free. I just belive that a country can only be judged by the way it treats its poor and your country ethos is pretty poo.
    I am sure that Americans have a lots of different opinions and some are glued in and some are not like any other country. But, the influenc that it has on other peoples lifes in so many countries is so huge that of course we take what americans say and think on the whole VERY seriously as the repercussions are so.

    NAH! Americans think there`s also a country called Holland somewhere in Europe (but the Dutch don`t know the difference either so it`s not the Americans to blame here).
    And there are much less longhorns in Vermont so Texas isn`t as big as depicted. And thanks to Dexter we know where to find Florida.

    You do realize that my "government" is the same as yours. I am an American as well. Just unlike you I do my homework. We are behind on our education. Only the highly developed Asian countries are ahead of Europe. Food is depends on your personal opinion. I will say that American cooking is more diverse than any European country. But, you can not say ours is better. Our cuisine is no different from any country in Europe. All I would say is I would rather take a girl to either a French or Italian restaurant than some American one. In Europe people actually live longer than in America.Plus America is considered the fattest nation in the world. Thou the UK and Germany are not far behind with 4th and 5th respectively. Finally entertainment? Yes we are home of Hollywood and some American films are pretty kickass. But I do believe it was us to spawned horrors like "The Jersey Shore", Rebbecca Black, Micheal Bay, and worse yet Twilight.

    "America is a big load of corperation-hypotized, industrialised, enchanted people who think everyone should live like americans do which is unsastanable."

    That`s a gross over-generalization. I won`t doubt that those kind of people exist but it`s really based on the culture of the area and even moreso personal opinions.

    One thing I can say is that I don`t know anyone who thinks that more people should live like Americans. We already know that America is turning into a cesspool of debt, paranoia, and two-faced politicians who think that digitally making money is the solution to the problem that the greedy bankers racked up

    Lolz. I agree. I knew some people over here from Germany and they asked if we could shoot over to Texas for the day. They were pretty surprised to learn it was almost 2000 miles away.

    There`s a famous quote on the difference between Europe and the USA which has quite a bit of truth in it:

    "In Europe, 100 miles is a long way. In America, 100 years is a long time."

    It`s all the more so here in England - you have parks about the size of our country and we have buildings still in use that are several times as old as your country. For example, the oldest existing building in my home town was built in 805. The town is far older, but all the other buildings have been rebuilt over the centuries. Other towns have older stuff - my home town is quite new by English standards.

    The really stupid thing about the ignorant nationalist burbling that`s sadly common is that it`s between people from countries that are really very similar. Sure, the USA has a far larger scale of natural features than the UK and the UK has far more history, but the places with people in them are very much the same. I`ve no reason to think it`s different for the rest of Europe.

    As a native born Texan I`d say hell no!
    No fruitloops from California and no carpetbagger Yankees from the North. Especially the retards from Washington D (dumbass)C (c*cksuckers)

    Hell I had to move to Hawaii to get away from all these sh*ts moving to Texas and ruining it in the 80`s.

    "In Europe, 100 miles is a long way. In America, 100 years is a long time."

    Terrific quote there @Angilion!
    I once drove up to Moose Lake, Manitoba (go look it up!) there`s a strech of road from Gypsumville to Hwy 60 where there is NOTHING for almost 200 km! (150 miles) Not one house, not one road, not one farm, zilch! One picnic park, but that is the ONLY man-made thing there.

    I described this to my European web-friends, they couldn`t wrap their minds around it, lolz! 200km of hardly anything? No, nothing at all.

    America, you mean that country founded by people who couldn`t make it in Europe because they where to dumb or uncivilized to keep up with the modern age they had to flee to another part of the world killing all the natives there and after a mere 300 years have run up a debt so big that, if China wants it`s money back, it will F* up the whole economic system in the rest of the world?
    You mean that country is way much better then Europe?

    Or do you mean that country where a waitress has to be tipped to earn her money but the government does nothing to protect her if the customer is an A*hole and doesn`t tip her or finds something to refuse paying all together?

    Or do you mean the America that i like to visit now and then.
    Where they make the biggest meals that cost almost nothing and have beautiful nature and wide open areas where there`s nobody withing the next kilometer or so.
    Be proud of that if you want to be be patriotic not about the ways

    LOL good to see you know your history. People came to america to be free from oppression and live somewhere where could find happiness. Saying they`re dumb or uncivilized is moronic and most certainly ignorant to say the least. The slaughtering of innocent people was wrong and i`ll admit that but at least get your facts straight.

    As far as our debt to china... Wrong again... our debt to china is only about 4% of our national debt. The most they could do is whine about how we owe them money and that`s it.

    Well you still hang onto royal famlies. What exactly do they do again and how much do they cost you??

    For the UK:

    i) Diplomatic, political and charitable work as head of state.

    ii) We make a great deal of profit off the royal family. They pay 100% tax on most of their income (crown estate) and that alone is more than 25 times as much money as they get from the state. Most of the money they get from the state goes on employing people, but even if they spent it all on golden chalices to drink ludicrously overpriced wine from then it would still be a great deal for the state. Then there`s the tourism. The admission fees to royalty-related tourism venues alone are over 60 times as much money as we pay the royal family. Then there`s the merchandising and the media rights.

    You should be more wary of prominently displaying your utter ignorance of other countries. It makes you look bad.

    Also, they would be good value even if they did cost us some money rather than making us a lot of profit.

    It`s worth paying a little money to preserve your heritage. The entire cost of the royal family might be as high as £40M a year (trivial compared to the £1B that`s a very low estimate of the profit made from them), but almost all of that would still apply if we became a republic because it`s things such as building maintainence costs, travel costs for the head of state (we`d still need a head of state, obviously), i.e. operating expenses that would still exist if we became a republic.

    You probably pay a lot to preserve parts of your heritage that are less than a 100 years old, yet you think it sensible to criticise us for preserving part of our heritage more than 1000 years old and making a lot of profit from doing so.

    You should be feeling silly.

    No one cares about Canada. Canada would have been invaded and taken over a long time ago had it not been for your saviour the United States.

    @Angilion... your points about the Royal family make NO ONE feel silly. The fact alone that you ridiculous people believe in "Royalty" is laughable. Especially with the long list of atrocities done by your "Royals" over centuries. That`s why every endeavor England set out on was a failure. You never got off that silly island... lol

    "you (england) never got off that tiny island"
    Lulz. You really that dumb? Watch gandhi maybe, and get back to us. America was originally a colony of - experts say... England. Ever hear the expression "the sun never sets on the british empire" or were you too busy procreating with sheep, your sister, and your half sheep son? Honestly? At one time in history, england, or britain as a whole, has beaten just about every other country in the world at war. Nazis almost won, but england 2(USA) stepped in and helped out before anything was decided on british turf. England has more landmass from overseas colonies than the area of the british isles. And if youre talking about taking land by force, the only map space taken by the US was taken fromfeather type indians, and the confederates of the civil war. You sir, do not deserve the internet, for you use it solely for the purpose of spreading idiocy. F U and F your inbred half sheep offspring.

    And america commits atrocities, as well. WW2- 800,000 japanese civilians killed/120,000 japanese civilians forced into internment caps for 4 years(2/3 of whom were american citizens) Phillipines revolutionary war- between 600,000 and 1.5 million civilians killed. War on terrorism/oilwar - 50-100,000 civilians. The great thing about the philipines rev war was the numbers. 10,000 philipines soldiers, 15,000 american soldiers. 5,000 pino soldiers down- 3,000 americans(1,200 to local disease) and possible 1.5 million phillipines citizens. Thats before the nuclear bomb, so that means the average american soldier shot or stabbed about 100 civilians. Im done. Sorry. Cant take the high and mighty glorious heroic paragon white knight america bullpoo. I dont respect my country less for these things, just use them to see the "atrocities" we go to war over as what they are-lame excuses to get more money, power, and land.

    Gee... every time I look at a map I see England is still just a tiny island on the other side of the Atlantic. I know for hundreds of years they tried to expand and conquer by raping and pillaging and murdering... but still... just a lil ol island.

    We all know it was the Spaniards and Asians who first came to America. The English came here with everyone else later on and tried to claim some type of "glorious discovery" when they knew damn well they discovered nothing new. Typical British BS.

    Facts remain intact, though.... the world concentrates on America and Americans don`t care (or need to care) about anything outside our borders. Vacation spots, murder pits and horrid teeth.

    I`d rather be fat and wealthy and live out my dreams in a fun loving, hard working life in America than merely exist over there on the smelly Mediterranean living 40 years in the depressive past.
