    What are American quirks?!?

    Hi,

    What quirks do Americans have? I saw this on The Daily Blog and thought it was pretty interesting.

    What are America's quirks? - americanculture emingrant immigrant | Ask MetaFilter

    There is a significant number of posters from Europe on here, so thought you all might have taken notice of interesting ones as well.

    For me:

    Bad: Ignorance deemed a virtue.

    Good: Second chances.

    Its more of a novelty now and particular to the East end ,I think it dates back to the prisons as a way of confusing the guards .

    That I can turn on the TV at dinner and see an eviscerated corpse (thanks "Bones"), but I can't see a topless woman because that's harmful in some way (?)

    Yes I do agree with this 100%. In America it's worse to see anything sexual but blood/gore/death is 100% ok.


    I know my German friends said it was weird that nobody can drink outside, yet we are a country of heavy drinkers. They also commented that we use "wagons" while shopping, and usually stock up considerable more.

    I think it really depends on which part of the USA that you talk about because areas vary a lot when you talk NYC-Metro vs Mid-West vs West-Coast etc etc

    Theres a lot of tall poppy syndrome in England and lot of people almost wish for folks to fail.Americans install and applaud confidence more which is a great thing.

    I think this video gives a good idea of horrible quirks or habits in America.
