Sadly, like the Roman empire, America’s days appear to be numbered.
As pretty much everything on this page is negative apart from the picture of wonder woman in her hot pants, I’ll kick things off on a more positive note with a few of my favourite American achievements: Awesome movies like “The Matrix” (1999) and “Flying High” (1980) Life changing books like “Catch 22” (1953) and “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” (1974) Brilliant albums like “LA Woman” (1971) and “Nevermind” (1991) Styling cars like the Corvette Stingray (1968) and the Plymouth Hemi Cuda (1971) Cutting edge bicycles like the Specialized Stumpjumper (1981) and the Merlin Titanium (1993) I didn’t really start out intending to make this point, but after listing a few of my favourite things, I then added dates and realised they are all from last century…Many other pages on this site contain opinions, hypotheses, and conclusions.And 20 percent of all Americans are on at least five prescription drugs.Doctors in the United States write more than 250 million prescriptions for antidepressants each year.A total of 27 former US National Team members (AKA bad ass American elites) competing on 9 teams.
But the more I added to it, the less funny it looked, and the more like a train wreck.
The grizzly bear is the official state animal of California.
But no grizzly bears have been seen there since 1922.
This page is just a collection of over 50 American statistics and facts. The main bias inherent on this page, is that these stats were mostly selected because they make America look bad.
As a New Zealander I’m aware that NZ has a lot of bad stats too.
The United States puts a higher percentage of its population in prison than any other nation on earth does. The United States has a teen pregnancy rate of 22 percent – the highest in the world. There are more unemployed workers in the United States than there are people living in the entire nation of Greece.
