RICH HALL, a US stand-up comic, explained: when you go to work in the morning, if your name is on the front of the building, you're upper class; if your name is on your desk, you`re middle class; and if your name is on your shirt, you`re working class.

Angilion, I am currently in the states, but I am originally from the Netherlands. I assumed the bag in a cup thing was an American habit and am surprised to find it is common in England as well.

The English got their tea from India not from China.
Not originally. Tea became very commonplace in England when it was grown in India, but it was originally obtained from China. Given how badly England acted to get tea from China (massive scale drug running followed by outright war), I expect English businessmen simply stole tea plants or seeds from China in order to grow tea in India.

beer might come from egypt originally
I'm almost sure that the oldest known beer is Sumerian, but it`s not proven where it came from originally because beer is prehistoric. We only know about the Sumerian beer because it was carved on a piece of stone that was discovered by archaeologists in modern times.
