    I can't much stand the yanks but what British person can, we don't take the dislike seriously, it's just tradition to hate them with a laugh.

    I found these comments funny

    With any luck and a bit more security you'll be locked in. :mrgreen:

    I love how you stereotype so much Lee,

    People who wear hoodies carry blades, All british people hate Americans.

    I goto America alot. I find they are cleaner, alot more organised, get things done in a far better manner. Have you looked at the british systems yet? Health, transport, schooling. Compare that to the Americans.

    On the hole they are really nice down to earth friendly people. You can say hi to them in the street and have conversations with strangers.

    Out of interest how many Americans have you met, how many times have you been there?

    Why would Amercia not fear an attack from Europe, look at who we are giving passports to.

    However, it's only 7 years ago when they were backing the Irish Terrorists over here. You could go into any Irish Bar in New York and there would be a collection tin for the IRA.

    Nobody has clean hands in this one

    I didn't stereotype, society did, read what I write. Society stereotyped hoodies, banned them from shopping centres, reported them as knife wielding muggers who hide their face with their hoods.

    As for yanks, it's been the same for years, where you been, goes back to world war two, maybe even before that, probably, going by what they used to call us in the 19th century. I used to work for rainforest cafe and harrods, I know what 'some' septics are like.

    I'm only having a laugh, cheer up. I live in Romania, I'm open to the world, I treat people as they treat me, sometimes better unless I'm having a bad day and they get what they deserve.

    Rainforest Cafe :cool:

    The only problem I see is the fact we gave them independence in the first place. British used to be on top of our game, leading the world and now we are quite happy to sit back and watch everyone overtake us. If we didnt have America we would be screwed.

    Infact we only paid off a huge loan from America a few years ago...

    i'm not happy to watch everyone overtake us, it's why i moved, many reasons I moved but the UK has no hope or promise now, sold itself to europe so move into europe and benefit, the uk needs to join the euro, I'm getting done on the pound to lei to euro exchange, the sooner it joins the better, I don't care anymore. as for the yanks and ww2, well done japan. ;)

    I'm an Englishman in NY, and the health system has pros and cons here.
    With my wife's health insurance (she pays extra each month for me to be covered on it - I think it costs about £100/month) everytime I go to the doctor it costs me either $15/$30 depending on if they are a clever doctor (are specialized in any way).

    Last time I went I got a prescription for 2 types of medicine. Went to the pharmacy, they tried to get me to pay $125 for the 1st prescription and $75 for the other. $200!!! that's £100!!! This was because the medicine prescribed wasn't covered in the insurance plan my wife's signed up to. So the option is pay more monthly to get cheaper prescriptions ($25/each - sometimes free if you pay a lot monthly), or me go ack to the doctor and get some other kind of medicine which probably won't work as well.

    Saying that I know it can take months and revisits to the doctor/consultant in UK for a CT scan in UK. I know you could get one here within 24 hours (if the insurance company approves the procedure - it'll be free)

    Which part of US did you go to?

    There are many friendly people here in New York, but you can't really say hi to a random in the street without getting a weird look at best ;)
    You say hi to someone here and they'll think you're a beggar... If someone said hi to me here I'd think the same of them or that I was about to get robbed depending on what they looked like...
