24 Fat People

Yes, I would be in favor of forming the Refrigerator Police, going door to door, and checking to make sure folks have only approved foods in the approved quantities on hand.

I'm an American and I'm scrawny, but I'll have to admitt this is true for about 50% of our population. All Americans do these days is eat a bag of something fried and watch the NFL. Of course, for most of our population, that is only a stereotype that should, like, end. But I think I've seen more obese people in my life that it's possible to COUNT! - RockFashionista

33 Rednecks

Wrong-Wrong; no doubt protesters throughout ages made sure they stood out in a crowd, but as it is used here has zero to do with anything from Britain. The term "redneck" as it is used in the US is totally homegrown, and comes from those pro-union miner protesters, who were pretty rough around the edges. It gradually became a catchall term that became insulting towards anyone who was not perceived to be city-sophisticated.

Actually, a "Redneck" was a pro-union protester. When the coal-miners in West Virginia were trying to organize a union for improved safety and pay for miners, the "pro" forces wore red bandanas around their necks to rallies and speeches, so that everyone could see who was on their side.

Got a lot of those in South Carolina.

37 Saving the World During WWII

Got to admit, Britain and Russia did more in WWII than the U.S. did, so I wouldn't really say that we "Saved the day", but I would say that we did contribute greatly to the victory. - Alpha101

38 Death Valley

Lowest elevation on the planet, and great desert scenery all around, but be sure to visit only during the wintertime.

Thousands of European tourists come here every year, just to "feel the heat", which is pretty incredible.
