Things I noticed about Americans outside of US Just got back from a 3 week trip south of US. A few things I noticed about my fellow Americans outside of our perfect country-- So I was just sipping my beer at an outdoor bar and across the street a bus load of middle aged tourists pulls up the street. They're being herded around one of those agonizing timeshare sales pitch. The guy sitting next to me mumbled "here comes the Americans". I turned and asked how'd he know. "Simple--just look at the size. Americans are bigger than those Europes". And unfortunately he's right. IMO and just by my informal a few day's study of people who shows up to listen to the timeshares, the biggest ones are Americans. These are seriously fat people that would crush a small person if they have sex. Sadly, I admit we're a country full of lard balls. On a side note, one of the Americans came across the street to our bar and barked "hey you got any beer?" The bartender just pretended not to understand English. I heard they do that a lot in France.
