Nothing is unquestionable, least of all subjective opinions.

How can Yuropoors even compete?

EDIT: Ok, ok, I can hear their complaints now. "You stupid American! Only American teams get to compete in the Super Bowl!"

Two points:
(1) No you are the stupid one for living in Eurostan. GOT 'EM!
(2) If only American teams can compete in the Super Bowl, isn't that proof that we are the best? Thought so!
(3) Fine, we won't use the Super Bowl. Has another country ever won the WORLD Series? No getting out of this one Yuropoors!

Yes! The Toronto Blue Jays won in 1992 and in 1993. Or do you claim Canada too?

Canada is a part of America's Manifest Destiny. Like Mexico.

This is all I could find: http://www.debate.org/opinions/does-canada-exist
Looks like the consensus is that its existence is just a joke.

I was just in California. Amazing beer, and great Mary Jane. Loved it but it smelled like Gulliver pissed over the entire thing.

"Kinda" means "mostly doesn't"

You reckon? The context I hear it in most is one of understatement. "This lettuce is kinda limp", for example, would be used for lettuce very much beyond its best, perhaps on the verge of dissolving. "This holiday kinda sucks" might be said after the airline loses your case, it's raining, and discovering the only restaurant within walking distance of your hotel is vegan.

Word games...Incrementalist, you're equivocating just to play with him. You know what the OP meant.

One thing that always bothers me when I visit the States is the massive portion sizes at all the restaurants. On a recent trip to DC, I was unable to finish a single meal I had ordered, including one off the kids' menu. I have no idea how you Americans are able to finish that much food. Only one of the people I was with was able to finish his meals, and after each one, he felt sick and had to lie down for a while.

However, Americans do produce fantastic television. TLC seems always to be producing gems like My 600lb Life and My Strange Addiction. And the commercials are always amazing! One commercial will promise you a pill that will fix all of your problems, and two commercials later, you'll see a lawyer saying that if you've ever taken a magic pill, you could be eligible to join a class action lawsuit.
