It seems that the U.S get a lot of shit from people living in other well developed countries. Though, I would think that most of the people that shit on other countries haven't even been to that particular country.

"why do people ______ when they've never ________ ?"

I don't know why some people choose to live under self imposed limitations, maybe because it's easier.

I have tried very hard to poop on countries I've never been to, but no matter how much ex-lax and sour milk I chug, I just can't get it to go more than a few feet.

This thread is fail. I've never been to Russia, which by most standards is a developed country, and yet I consider the place a shithole and have no desire to ever visit for any reason. I could probably be persuaded, but it would require a lot of money. Personally the record-setting tyranny, corruption, and poor quality of life really kill it for me. Russia is a bit of an unusual case, but I have no desire to visit China because of very similar reasons, and the same goes for some developed countries in SE Asia, for example.

On the other hand I can think of a lot of countries I've never been to but wouldn't mind staying in for at least a little while, such as most of W Europe, Brazil, Argentina, Japan, Australia, and maybe S Korea.

Also, I have been to Moldova and the Ukraine, and after seeing Kiev I really don't want to know what Russia is like. Interesting history and culture, but what a fucking mess.

No other country get so much global attention as the US. We probably have a much better idea of what's going on over there than you got on what's going on over here.

Judging by your marginal coherence, terrible writing skills, and references to conspiracies and "the mainstream media", it's more likely that you simply speak from an unhinged point of view. Eat your pills and get back with us tomorrow.

Mark Twain once said,
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”

I believe over 60% of Americans have never traveled out of the USA. Granted we do have a very large country, but when most people put Disney World as their place to vacation I think they need to get a little culture. My brother falls right into this category. The only places that he's been to is Disney World and Las Vegas. If he enjoys himself then I guess it's fine, but why do you have to visit Disney World every god damn year?

Anyway, most Americans don't know squat when it comes to other countries. Other countries aren't exempt. They also harbour prejudice behavior. When I was in South Korea it seemed that they only knew what Americans were like by watching our movies and TV shows. I'm only 5"10 and I weigh 185lbs. When I'd meet a South Korean person they would tell me that they thought all Americans were ignorant, big, and fat.

All I can says is I've been to Cuba and Venezuela, two countries that constantly poop on the US. They've got nothing to brag about since their respective revolutions.

Not a fan of the US either lately, but I've been there so I can poop on them. My issue is not with the people or culture but the gross level of stupidity and arrogance in their government. Something few Yanks would disagree with at this point.

To watery, you need some cheese for greater density.

sort of what I was suspecting, been trying to obtain a sufficient level of explosiveness but can't get the trajectory and spray pattern right. Hard to get a decent grouping at more than a few yards.

There is a saying of "the ugly American" and I am not talking about the look.

<<<--- has been to numerous countries in Asia, Australia, South America. Next stop, Europe and Africa.

I guess in your defense, "there" passes a spell checker.
