10 Things British Do Better Than Americans

I think this is a good starting point for a debate as there is clear rivalry all the time between us Brits and the Yanks all the time.


So do you agree with the ten stated that us Brits are better at

Is there any others people would like to say we do better than the US at and reason why

And lastly do the Yanks have what they would claim is done better in the US thank the UK?

10) Most Americans would love to have more paid holidays, but the undue influence of corporate interests on right-wing politicians makes this a hard thing to achieve:

One of Paul Ryan’s conditions for becoming speaker is that he be able to spend time with his family. But when it comes to federal policies on family leave, Ryan has opposed virtually every measure proposed over the past several years.

In 2009, for instance, Ryan voted against the Federal Employees Paid Parental Leave Act, which would have allowed federal employees to substitute up to four weeks of available paid leave to take parental leave. The bill passed a then-Democratic House with 24 Republican votes, but the legislation never made it to the Senate floor.

http://www.politico.com/story/2015/10/paul-ryan-family-leave-speaker-house-215034#ixzz3xRWYrQEJ

The House had 155 Republican members voting against paid family leave.

9) Point conceded, at least in the last several decades. But what are Cowell, Osbourne and for that matter, Anne Robinson, best known for? Being harsh. Yea!

8 ) The U.S. has no royal weddings because we have no royalty, which I realize brings in a lot of tourism now but meant centuries of autocratic rule for the UK, so -- no. You had English monarchs who didn't even speak English; even Victoria spoke it with a German accent, so, again -- no.

7) James Bond is cool, but we've got the superheroes and supervillains. There is no iconic British superhero or villain -- we have Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, the Hulk, Wolverine ... Magneto, Lex Luthor, Venom, the Joker ...

I'll concede that Constantine is pretty awesome, though.

6) The U.S. has few cities that were built out before the invention of the automobile, so we don't need taxis the way you do. The cities that did get big before cars have pretty good taxi fleets, though, and I'd argue the NYC yellow cab is equally iconic to the London black cab.

5) Not even a good point, as billionaires are in the main sociopaths who tread on the common man to get more money than they could ever spend.

4) Tea time, really? The only way you'd think that was an advantage is if you'd been raised with it. There's nothing objectively great about having tea and a snack.

3) Castles and palaces -- like pyramids, they're really just pretty, majestic symbols of oppression.

2) 630 megawatts? Wow! ... Texas windfarms alone generate nearly twice that. And just to beat the rest of you to the punch, yes -- the majority of it does come from me, either blowing hot air or breaking wind.

I picked quite a bit of envy more than anything else lol Ben out of your answers. Some honesty there I will agree but even many Yanks envy that we have a Royal family and go even more Royalmania at a Royal wedding than the British do, so you cannot make any claim to say you have anything better than that, as many in your country do envy that. James Bond beats anything the US has, beause at least James Bond is based on real life people, where as comics are completely fictional and based on powers which are near zero impossible to have. So again as far as a superhero goes, would make James Bond leap and bound above the Marval  or DC superheroes.
You are a Philistine if you fo not even enjoy tea, which is way better than coffee for you. Our cultural buildings are a class above anything the US has to offer, as it has the history as well that makes the US history look insignificant next to.
Black cabs rock so again you are lagging there.

Why in the world would I want a royal family? Really -- the royals are useless.

James Bond has been over the top and ridiculous for most of its history -- at least superhero stories don't pretend to be anything besides over the top and ridiculous.

I like tea, I just don't know why having it at the same time every day is so great. That's dumb.

What exactly "rocks" about black cabs?

I understand these things are dear to you, as you were raised with them, but you should understand that that's the only reason you think they're great. Just like I realize there's nothing intrinsically wonderful about prickly cactus, I just like them because I grew up around them.

1) You are not the only American, its not based on just Ben's views but the population of the US, who are very envious of our Royal family. Do you deny this? Hence it would be something the UK has that is better than the US

2) Again James Bond is based on real people, and is thus that much more believable compared top the US Superheroes which are next to near impossible and impobable.

3) The service you have with Black cabs and how they are actually generally very safe to be in.

I have only actually made views on your views noyt actulaly fully giving my views on all of this

Seriously you really are emotion today by that last sentence lol

So? I can't comment on a video you posted for comment because I have feelings about it?

I really don't know any Americans who are big fans of the royal family -- honestly, over here they seem hokey and old-fashioned. Like barristers wearing wigs, it gives this impression of a stodgy, up-tight country.

Black cabs are safe and iconic (not as iconic as your red buses, though). But like I said, most major U.S. cities don't have as great a need for taxis. I've been in a taxi once my whole life, and that was when I visited New York.

I did say James Bond is cool. He's still the best fictional spy. I just pointed out that while the UK has the market on spies, we have the market on superheroes. I enjoy Iron Man as much as James Bond, they're just entertainment.

That just sums up your mannerism tonight and why you are again bering very defensive, as I never said once you could not comment, but was not in aggrement with you, which is why its a debate and am reasoning my points

So its clearly of little point even having any dialogue this evening between us as you clearly are allowing your emotions to get the better of you and have no wish to see you annoyed or upset.

So I will happily bow out and apologise if at all I have offended you for just countering with you tonight


Cheers

In my personal opinion why the US is not only obsessed but loves the British Royal family is two fold.

1) It stills shows a sentimental tie between the US and Britain that they must view them still connected in some way

2) That people always want something glamorous that they do not have or cannot have, thats just human nature.,.

Culture, most definitely.

And so I  have to disagree with you Ben, when it comes to the castles and palaces you mentioned, more particularly the many castles in Scotland along with ruins, battlegrounds, historic houses etc, More Americans than any other foreigners, are drawn to the culture of Scotland, which is why we see the United States being the largest source of oversea visitors to Scotland.

I'm just saying, you're banging on about the royals when they're really nothing more now than a history-nerd version of Disneyland. Looking into the Americans who do follow the royals, the sex scandals and quaintness of having a royal family seem to be the top reasons.

When's the last time a British monarch made an impactful decision, anyway? My research indicates it might have been nearly 200 years ago.

That is your personal prefernece and opinion and not that of the majority iof the US who clearly are obsessed and clearly still retain a strong link and feeling towards the UK

Your last sentence shows yet again you are being emotive, as I never laid claim to how good the Royal family is of has been but how very much the US love the Royal family and for the two reasons given. So you do not reprersent the US view, but your view, as we are talking about a collective view here. So going off wrongs they have done is so utterly irrelevent, its of no importance at all. What is of imporatance is the fact the US collectivelly are in awe of the British Royal family

Again blimey

Yeah, people are in awe of the tawdry details and most view them as they do the Kardashians -- people famous for being famous. I wouldn't brag about that.

PMSL, no where have I even bragged about this, where did I do that?

Again your emotions are running wild and out of control

Let me make this very clear Ben for you

I am merely just saying that many Americans are obsessed and love our British Royal family, to the point they are envious and for the reasons given, of which those reasons are just my opinion. What matters is, if they are in awe of them and rate them higher than your own politicians, it is something we have that is better than yours. I am not bragging but just merely backing up the claim in the video on that one point

Now, please stop taking everything so personal tonight and chill out

Hmmm. Come on guys seriously!
There are great things about both countries. I like mine the best, obviously, this is my home.

The royals - I feel nothing toward them one way or another
Black cabs and red buses - iconic London
Comedy - love both US and English
Serial dramas - US rocks for me! All kinds - they outdo us IMO
Films - American all day long for me
Food - neither, both countries suck for cuisine - I like Italian or Greek or any Mediterranean food

The most beautiful city in the world? Paris

Fashion? French
Perfume? French
Furniture and class? French

Comedy - love both US and English
Serial dramas - US rocks for me! All kinds - they outdo us IMO
Films - American all day long for me
Food - neither, both countries suck for cuisine

The most beautiful city in the world? Paris

Fashion? French
Perfume? French
Furniture and class? French


Most beuatuiful city to me is Rome, but then I have a bias for Euopean culture.

You are a Romantic Eddie with French loves you have

Laughing

Its one of your best qualities, because love is all around you.

I do love French culture and all the furniture and soft furnishings and their buildings are quite classical and regal.
I just feel very much at home in Paris. It's my favourite city and place.

That is because you are an artist.... Laughing

A Music artist that also loves all artistic design


But you are unlike most picture or sculture artists who are right brain sided, which is the creative side for he brain, the left logical, but musical people need equally both left and right sided for musical skills.
We both share that trait, where others are more governed by only one side.

10 things Americans do better than the British

10) Baseball.







9) Inventing stuff.









8-) (speaking of Voyager ...) Awesome space images.







7) Mass production.



Cool Muscle cars.



7) Inventing rock n' roll.



6) Inventing jazz.



5) Diversity.



4) End zone dances.



3) Getting credit for beating Hitler.

As the world celebrates the 70th anniversary of Allied victory in Europe, millions in the UK will honour the role played by British forces in the defeating Nazi Germany.
According to a new poll, however, most other countries look to the United States as the country that did the most to vanquish Adolf Hitler.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/11590755/Poll-US-did-more-than-UK-and-USSR-to-defeat-Nazi-Germany.html

2) The Atomic Age.



1) Canyons.

4 and 5 agree, 6 I hate Jass, which really does not have any envy of here.
If it influenced many forms of music, that would be different and it has, but not as much as other music influences.
Cars you lose again, nothing beats a Astin Martin for Muscle cars, the yanks version is all engine and no aerodynamics, maneuverability. Granted they look good, but that is about it.
Agree with 7 massive influence which would make jass small fry
The Soviet Union beats you on mass preduction
Baseball is worse than cricket for being lame
WE call it rounders over here and its more common;y assoicated with being a girls sport.  Laughing

Underscoring my point earlier that a lot of the reason you think are awesome is that you grew up with them Smile

Baseball can be boring -- quite often -- but when it's good, it's great. And we have softball for girls, which has basically become a totally different sport.

Might I add in the sports category:

Slam dunks.



Volleyball.

He started off thinking he was with the good guys. Then he learned he might be descended from the bad guys and even have part of that in himself. Then he stood up and said, "No, I'm really with the good guys, and I don't care if you're my (father/ancestor), I'm gonna kill you!"

It's the same basic story Smile
