laughoutloud-club: The Weirdest Things About America: 20 Of The Weirdest Things About America That Americans Don't Realize Are Weird 1. Portion Sizes. 2. Flags everywhere. EVERYWHERE 3. Price tags without tax included. How do you know how much you're spending until you get to the cashier? 4. Tipping: It was incredibly hard for me to wrap my head about how much is appropriate for the service 5. Advertising prescription drugs. That was the weirdest one for me. "ask your doctor for brand x antidepressants" type commercials on TV. In the UK, your doctor tells you what drugs you should take, not the other way round 6. Everything being designed around cars. 7. The sheer amount of commercials on the television, and their lack of quality 8. Aerosol cheese. Like seriously I would try it at least once, but that shit looks like cancer 9. a visiting Italian friend was very puzzled at Americans' use of the phrase, "Oh, really?" in group conversations. Somehow he took that as a person challenging his opinion, when in reality, it's just some habit a lot of us have that basically means, "Interesting. Can you elaborate?" The guy was red in the face after an hour because he literally thought everyone in our group was challenging every single thing he said 10. Your toilets are too low down and the stalls have massive gaps around the door so that people can see in. You can put a man on the moon but can't design a setup whereby I can have a dump in comfortable privacy. Sort it out America 11. Pickles. Your hidden love for pickles. I have been in the states for like 8 years and you guys give a pickle with everything. 12. I find it really weird how college football players are kind of celebrities. They're scrutinized and have fans and do TV interviews, and it just boggles my mind so much. They're just students that do an extra- curricular activity! I don't understand 13. Jaywalking is a crime? I did this a lot in the US without realizing it was supposed to be illegal 14. Why is bread in the USA so sweet? Sandwich bread, hamburger buns, taste like cake but Americans have no idea what you're talking about because they're used to it. 15. Soft drink is free flowing, everywhere McDonalds you get a gigantic cup for a dollar - it comes with unlimited refills. Even at a restaurant if you half finish your coke the waitress will bring you another one. The first time you're like "hey I didn't order this" but then you realize it's free 16. You are all so loud! But friendly 17. There is so much water in your toilet bowls! Seriously, why so much? 18. A very blasé approach to credit card security Signatures don't matter and no one uses a PIN 19. The pledge of allegiance is creepy. I know most Americans just say it because they have to in school but if you listen to the words it sounds strange to have children just chanting it off 20. Lawyer adverts, everywhere. Saul Goodman laughoutloud-club: The Weirdest Things About America

High-school students across the country organize acts of protest in response to last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida. So far there are plans for a countrywide walkout on March 14th, marches on March 24th, and a day of protest on April 20th - the anniversary of the 1999 Columbine High School shootings in Colorado. ___ Some protests have already begun. A group of surviving students from Douglas High School traveled today to the state capital, Tallahassee, to push for a change in Florida’s gun laws. And yesterday, 17 high-school students lied down in front of the White House for three minutes, an act meant to symbolize both the number of individuals killed in last week’s shooting (17) and how quickly one can obtain a firearm (3 minutes). ___ Photo: Saul Martinez | The New York Times: RO STOP U.S NEWS STUDENT PROTESTS Feb 20 | Students across the country gather together to push for gun contro High-school students across the country organize acts of protest in response to last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
