Get ready to see a lot of fat people. 60% of American adults are overweight or obese.

Even though I personally prefer Ps3, Xbox 360 is considered the best console here in the states, perhaps because of its American design.

 

I have heard that the Ps3 is more popular in the UK, and the rest of Europe for that matter. Is this true?

We're ...lazy....

 

mfw. Americans work 30% more hours than Europeans and have less vacation time.

Meh, obesity is just really bad in the lazy-as-fuck Southern states. If he's just going to California "only" 60% are overweight, which is less than the UK.

Also came across this hilarious graph .gif that predicts 100% obesity because I say it does.

Here are some actual FACTS. You can tell they're FACTS because I wrote it in all caps.


    [*]Americans don't know anything about Europe, other than that we had to save your asses in 2.5 wars. This is not because they are more retarded than the average European lowest-common-denominator, as bitter 3rd-world 9gag commentators would have you believe. They honestly just do not give a fuck; European affairs are never covered on the news or anything. Unless it's bashing France, because fuck them. Take that how you will.
    [*]No one knows the difference between being English/British, or even what the actual name of your country is. Including me. Is it the United Kingdom? Great Britain? England? Why can't you just pick something and put it on my mini-globe?
    [/list]

    You are required to document yourself watching the following video for the entire plane ride over if you want to make it through customs.

     

     

    Otherwise they will just load you into a burlap sack and ship you off to some random South American puppet country.

 England is the single country.

Great Britain is England, Scotland, and Wales

United Kingdom is England, Scotland, Wales, and Norhern Ireland.

 

 

Also, it surprises me that your chart says that New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and even Australia have a greater percentage of overweight people than Canada. I always figured Canadians would purposely pack on the blubber to keep themselves warm.

... And if you try to explain with something like this, it is proven that 103% of Americans will have 1 of two possible responses:

Prepare to see cars on the right side of the street.

 

Though I'm guessing you won't be driving a lot?

 Well, there's more basic stuff as well, like how biscuits and chips have completely different meanings here, but I figured you already knew that.

Just to let you know this is actually outdated now, a couple of years ago Australia overtook America (take that XD)

Or the difference between Australia and the UK from my experiences. Apparently they can't distinguish between our accents so be prepared to be asked whether you're from the UK or Australia
