There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

Another stereotype that is very offensive towards Americans is that their very racist, which is NOT TRUE, because not all Americans are racist. Some of them are very nice, helpful and friendly. Plus, if they were racist, it's their own opinion.

Opinionatedareshole I don't care what you're saying.

LOL! Dis is true, except for the fact about them being rude when they're NOT!

They're massively stereotyped. They're not all fat, they're not stupid, they're not careless for other countries! Drop it all! All US stereotypes!

American's mind: *snorting laugh* I'll get the crumpets ready, Jeeves boil the kettle if you would not mind me asking.

Reality (Mainly East London): You alright geezer? Yea me an all. // Rugby's on soon, I'll be up the pub watching it.

And I like tea and a Sunday Roast too, and anything British too (that isn't crumpets or eggs, which taste like fried mucus), but not ALL THE TIME! I like variety! - PositronWildhawk

Well to be honest, that is correct.

My name is Ivan, my parents Ivan and Ivana are proud Soviet Russians, we ride bears every day to get to our jobs in the uranium and coal mines and we can't miss a day, because... you know... GULAG. We use Ak-47 to kill Americans and Iranians that we meet.

Everyone thinks Australia is purely put a island filled with spiders but there's more to it ( also is it normal to say mate after every sentence in Australia, because that what everyone I know does when the do a impression of Australia)

We don't ride kangaroos

Guys, even though Australia is recognized as the exotic and isolated country of kangaroos, the facts show us that this amazing land indeed is incredibly developed and has some of the most liveable cities in the planet, such like Melbourne and Sydney.

Well not all of them are nice, in fact, some of them are very mean to the United States. We are allies, we should be friends.

I'm not your buddy guy

I don't know why Americans appear to be so paranoid about Canada. They both have similarities and differences, but not such that they can be enemies.
Side note: America does not hate Canada. And I don't think they do, nor do I hate either of them. That's another one of many deceitful American stereotypes. - PositronWildhawk

Face it. All Americans hate canadians. it's just a fact. you should hate Americans. Americans should die!

This is for Hitler: "How DARE you disgrace all Germans! You made your own kind look bad, and evil! "

It is all Hitler's fault for making Germans look bad by his hatred towards Jews and Nazi's killing them. Not all Germans worship Hitler and they don't kill Jews and anyone (other than Jews) at all.

"Not all Germans worship Hitler."
True. The country pretty much doesn't give a thought to Hitler any longer. - PositronWildhawk

France is no longer Napoleonic, and Russia is no longer Soviet, so why does everyone say that Germany is Nazi? Stuck in 1939? Move on. And look at Germany now. - PositronWildhawk

Its funny how people from Germany try to justify the fact that they are wrongfully accused of being Nazi and racist with only argument that "US is pathetic" :p. They have self-irony, I give them that :P
