The only reasons you gave to prove your points were biased first hand accounts and the opinions of your family, such as the teeth of the British and the percentage of overweight people in European countries.

Now I post irrefutable evidence that the USA is not the fattest country, not even in the top 7.

It's only 18 lines long, you can't be bothered to read something that will prove you wrong? You had enough time on your hands to reply.

Your reply baffles me; it would take under 30-seconds to read. It's as if you wish to stay uninformed so you can keep arguing.

It's like Stat Master just totally dominated your world and then you unsuccessfully tried to pretend like you didn't really want to live in your world anymore anyway. Therefore, you lose the conversation.

No, it's the #2 return from the query "obesity countries" in Google. You aren't going to read it because you are ignorant. I know that 67% of men in the USA are overweight; I know that 38% of women in the USA are overweight. And so what?

Somehow this country of lazy fat stupid people are the worlds only superpower, and somehow this ragtag group of fatties control one fifth of the worlds money.

The USA is the leader of innovation, a melting pot of different cultures, producing things that are uniquely American. There is no other country in the world with such a diversity, of people, culture, climates, and ideas.

I hope you feel "clevier" about not knowing the facts. But please, donít read the article, I'd love for you to stay ignorant, it makes the USA's job of taking over the world much easier when everyone else is too dumb to know whatís happening.

People don't say typos. Yes a melting pot of different cultures. Besides the small population of Native Americans, everyone in America immigrated here.

White 77.1%, Black 12.9%, Asian 4.2%, Amerindian and Alaska native 1.5%, native Hawaiian and other Pacific islander 0.3%, other 4% (2000)

note: a separate listing for Hispanic is not included because the US Census Bureau considers Hispanic to mean a person of Latin American descent (including persons of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin) living in the US who may be of any race or ethnic group (white, black, Asian, etc.)

There are 8 to 11 million illegal immigrants living in the USA, every year 50,000 green cards are given away in a lottery. I wonder why so many people want to get into the land of flab.

Your history is undoubtedly longer, but more interesting? Letís see, our history includes the pilgrims, Native Americans, revolutionary war, civil war, slavery, Wild West, Hawaiiana's history pre and post white man, and everything from Ben Franklin to Thomas Edison.

Your history includes a bunch of moldy old kings throwing stones at each others castles.

And no, it isnít James Bond, he's distinctly British and his last movie sucked.

This is getting pretty interesting.


"if i could be bothered to read it... i would... but im sure it only backs up the fact that im right..."

That is the best way to lose a discussion like this. At least read what your "opponent" is giving you to back up his opinion, and then come up with facts that prove them wrong.


"Somehow this country of lazy fat stupid people are the worlds only superpower, and somehow this ragtag group of fatties control one fifth of the worlds money."

Which is because the Great depression and the crisis didn't have the same impact on the USA as it had on Europe. Its NOT because Americans are BETTER. Also "a fifth of the worlds money" is not an argument, you have to look at the population number too.


"Britain has a much bigger, if not more interesting history"

The histories of Britain and the USA are both interesting.


"Your history is undoubtedly longer"

No it isn't. History starts at the point where people started "writing". Europeans did not invent writing. Almost all cultures around the world invented it on about the same time.


"Yes a melting pot of different cultures"

It's not a melting pot, it's a salad bowl. The cultures did not melt at all.

What is this? 'A who's country is better argument?'
Its nice to seem some patriotism, but don't go saying your country is better and then refusing to accept other' arguments.

hey please do call in a sub. But ill stick with what i said, our country has a more interesting history. Try having a Monarchy. Hayo, yes you are correct, that was a bit foolish. But another point i dont understand, if this is such a proffesional argument all of a sudden why the hell are people still going on about people being fat? JP try shakespeare,Winston churchill,The beatles,Charles Dickens,Agatha Christie, Jk ROWLING, im pretty sure you americans are mad on Harry Potter.
