The Top Ten

1 Music

I really can't decide about it - zxm

British singers have much more diverse voices, better genres, and the like. - Swellow

Team GB - needs no explanation. - Britgirl

Beege: "Tender nerve? " Don't know bout you but I'm grinning over here. "Neanderthal? " Little harsh, no? We are, in fact, Cro Magnon, albeit a bit Iron Age-- when necessary. "Apology? " From whom to whom? Quite sure I see no need for any (though it is interesting how your true feelings come out when you're miffed).

2 Accents

Every time I go to America, I get complimented on my accent. Why, thank you, but there are some British boys back home with even better ones. - PositronWildhawk

I sound like a cross between Ramsay Bolton and Michael from I'm Alan Partridge. I kind of look a bit like Ramsay as well. - IronSabbathPriest

3 Humour

In America it's pronounced "Humor". Well, British and Americans are very different despite speaking the same language.

But American humour is the best and that's very true - Ananya

Team GB - deadpan humour is better than visionary slapstick. - Britgirl

Blackadder
Bottom
Fawlty Towers
The Young Ones
The Inbetweeners

I could go on, or I could watch one of those shows. - IronSabbathPriest

Oh yeah! We got Pixar, Dreamworks Animation, Blue Sky Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and so much more! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Spelling

Sometimes, American grammar astounds me. "I could care less", rather than "I couldn't care less". So, does that mean you care a little? - PositronWildhawk

Hmm...I guess Team USA spell things a little less complicated. They tend to spell as they say them, which makes more sense. - Britgirl

Almost everything from america was based off of things in Britain. You have Rugby? We're calling it Football. You have Football? We're calling it soccor. You say "Zee"? Well guess what, we're not pronouncing it your way anymore! We're pronouncing it "Zed"! - SeeU

6 Sports

WOO! Go Team USA at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Team US - hate it when Great Britain are against the US in swimming, diving, shooting... - Britgirl

7 Language

Team GB - there is no such thing as an American language, however much the US have tried to change it. - Britgirl

You forgot one, V. French. But when all's said and done, no one really thinks about where it derived from. English is English.
*crack! * Oops...think I've just broken a couple of 'em... - Britgirl

No such thing as the American language? Say that to Sarah Palin.
"Immigrants to the US must speak American." - PositronWildhawk

8 Food

Britain wins over America in my opinion - TwilightKitsune

Considering that Britain can get away with massive Angus burgers, Full English Breakfasts and other massive meals, without getting quite as tubby as the average American, we do make better food, with less adverse effects on one's health.

With that said, Britain is the second fattest country in Europe, second only to Germany. Both UK and USA eat too much. - PositronWildhawk

9 Education

Used to be. Just like Harvard and Yale. Now they're all just incubators and disseminators of Newspeak and other revisionism.

When you look at the highest ranked universities in the world, both countries dominate the charts, and both countries are met by people coming from all over the world to study there.
One reason that I'd recommend living in London is that many of the most prestigious universities in the world are virtually on your doorstep. - PositronWildhawk

10 Best looking men / women

Team GB - both sexes are more natural. - Britgirl

Ok...! Alright! We need peace talks now. That comment, V was just plain silly. Everybody ('specially the Americans - yes, I'm a-talking' to you ;) ) need to lighten up.
Shall we pop off for some tea and crumpets...? :-) - Britgirl

If you mean your women don't shave their legs or armpits, and your men DO, then you might have something there. Don't know what, but SOMETHING.

Phew, V, that was getting heated! Neeya...best leave the Russians to their own devices...And as Neanderthals go, you are a sweetheart among them. The best of a crazy bunch ;) Calm waters between two beautiful countries resumes. For now... :). - Britgirl
