Why I Love America (as A Limey)

10 reasons I love America as a Brit. Every country has it's good and bad points and America is no different but this is a list of things I like about the place.
1Patti Smith
Horses


The bars - long, dark, laid back bars with sport on the TV where you can just sit at the bar and chill all afternoon without any hassle and get quietly drunk
2Aerosmith
Rocks


The women - much more friendly and open than British women
3Beck
Mutations


Customer service - I don't know if it seems good to Americans but customer service is so shite in Britain you feel like you are a rock star in comparison
4Sparklehorse
Good Morning Spider


The cops - I reported a stolen car in England and police didn't give a shit. Some shady immigrant at an electronics shop in NYC sold me an empty box instead of a camera and I showed it to a cop nearby and he went apeshit on those motherfuckers.
5Jackson Browne
Late for the Sky


Fat people - I'm a bit porky and it made me feel slim.
6 The Jayhawks
Smile


Hollywood - lots of shite but at least they do some decent movies compared to the up their own ass British movies who either have stereotype east-end London gangsters, Hugh Grant being Hugh Grant or is a tale about some deprived white bloke who happens to love a Muslim girl and is sposed to say that multi-culturalism works even tho it doesn't.
7Love
Forever Changes


Tax - lower than ours
8King's X
Gretchen Goes to Nebraska


Prices - some things maybe too high like telecoms but overall your prices are really cheap due to such a large market for basics.
9Linda Ronstadt
Heart Like a Wheel


The food - I can go to a little shop in NYC and pay 2 dollars for a huge fuck off sandwich with fresh yummy cooked pork and get served with a smile in 1 minute by someone who acts like they want me to come back tomorrow. In London I pay 4 quid (6 dollars) for a limp day old sandwich with a bit of egg and cheese and stand in a queue for 5 mins to be served by a twat.
10Guster
Goldfly


The scenery - it's all spaced out but fking hell man the sequoias, death valley, new england in autumn, san francisco, niagra, the rockies, yosemite - gobsmacking
