I have never understood Americans sense of nationalism or pride, but maybe thats because I don't see much here to be prideful about?
The main thing I've never understood about Americans is the huge importance and acceptance of Christianity.
I hate religions. They all seem so ridiculous that the idea of anyone believing the tales is unfathomable.
I realise that offense is a very subjective thing. Some will be offended by my hatred of religion. I am offended by religion. I was recently at a wedding, and before or after we ate, (I can't remember exactly) some woman stood up and asked that we all bow our heads so she could say a prayer. I was genuinely disgusted and refused.
Over here religion is viewed by many as somewhat taboo anyway. It's not the sort of thing you speak of publicly. It's accepted, but not flaunted.
On a completely unrelated note, I have a mystery for all you people of the internet.
I recently wore a hoody for a short moment. There are two possibilities, both being very plausible.
1. It shrunk in the tumble drier.
2. My 3 weeks of pissing around with my weights has been more significant than previously thought, and my hair has also got larger.
What do we reckon?
