    Hmm, I've had different experiences. In general, the Australian women I've met end up marrying americans

    In the grand scheme of things, it could be much, much worse. I mean, we could be any number of other societies right now - Venezuela, Turkey, Syria, most of Africa...

    We are a society of overreaction and manufactured outrage, fueled by the cancer of people that can be cunts on social media platforms with basically no repercussions. I think really, the problem America is having as a whole is one of damaged pride - I had no illusions of what Trump was as a person, but I at least thought he'd give a fleeting try at not embarrassing the fuck out of us to the rest of the world. People don't like to be laughed at for being associated with something they, in the long run, have no personal control over. I love my country, but I fucking hate that there are so many people that are proud of a man that's trying his hardest to make it a fucking laughingstock, and seems to actively be trying to make the rest of the world lose faith in us. To paraphrase Braveheart, sometimes the problem with America is that it's full of (some) Americans.

    And that's why I'm pissed, and still considering my taco truck in Norway. But ultimately, I'll be alright. Thanks for asking. :)

    I get by with the knowledge that humanity has been through worse, even if America hasn't.

    Alternatively, live in Colorado. Just walk down the street.

    I dated an American girl for awhile but it didn't work out. She didn't get how funny I was. Also there was the MMF threeway and I wasn't one of the M's. You were a bitch, Courtney, but you didn't let it stop you from being a cunt.

    American vs. Australian-British humour is actually worth looking at. It doesn't always gel. I think it stems from the fact that America is a land of optimists, you laud success and pat each other on the back for doing a good job. Australians, we're a land of convicts and cynics. If anyone gets too far ahead of themselves we tear 'em down.

    QFT. I can't remember what I said, but when I first got to Canada a few mates and I were out and about, having a good time, a couple of Canadians present. Banter was flying thick and fast and I landed a real zinger on one mate (an Aussie). One of the chicks spent the rest of the evening looking at me like I'd sodomised her father in front of her. To this day she's very cool towards me.

    My mates' have had girlfriends with Taiwanese-Jewish American backgrounds, one was Scottish as well plus a Serbian. Their reaction to chat Aussies basically use to fill empty space was hilarious, they'd go all quiet and withdraw from the conversation with a face like a stunned mullet.
