American Things Europeans Find Weird

We Americans know that the rest of the world sees us as rich, obese, and armed. But there are quite a few other aspects of life that we take for granted but seem weird to Europeans. While food and gas are relatively cheap in the US, our healthcare and education are frighteningly expensive to Europeans. Guess what- they are frighteningly expensive to us, too. And there are a lot more things that make Americans exceptional.

Of course, this is just a general overview and does contain some stereotypes that aren't true (for example, Brits actually have better teeth than Americans). And they didn't even touch on the weird way Americans wear shoes inside the house, use the Imperial system of measurements, and play football. (via Digg)

Yes, it's funny how different things are "over there" in the US...but that is what makes life so interesting.
Unfortunately, I really am scared (and every European) of the US approach to firearms: this simply is a "No-GO" for me. How can a civilized State possibly allow their citizens to carry firearms?! It's so unbelievable, even more so with the recent mass shootings

You got me there. I think it's insane, too.
