RE: Opinions of Americans
When I first came to the states, many things were below par. Bread being one of them, and you still can hardly find decent bread despite a zillion varieties. Cake is so sweet that I can't eat it (It's the icing). Coffee and beer have improved a ton since I moved here, they used to be deplorable. Mustard and cheese have improved a ton also.

I miss decent cold cuts, you can find them at an incredibly inflated price. The flavor in fruit and veggies seems to have disappeared in all first world countries.

Overall, there has been enormous improvement in what is available, because of the upstart of local breweries and bakeries and so forth. The mass produced food is still deplorable.

The people - it varies from location to location. Some areas are very friendly and hospitable, in other areas strangers are shunned - same as in the rest of the world.

Overall, the US is not that different anymore, and a lot has improved.

RE: Opinions of Americans
Here's one thing to describe america:
Weird presumptuous social standards.
It's just weird over here in the US. Confused
That's why I limit the amount of people in contact with me during school hours to at maximum, 5.

I think cake is a delivery system for icing....my favorite part of any cake (except for pineapple upside down cake). Tongue

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude.

Fuck cake icing, we put way too much on our cakes.I might as well just inject an overdose of pure sugar into my femoral artery.

And we make it so goddamn thick, too. Angry

YEAH UP YOURS NEW JERSEY! Laugh out load

Everybody from New Jersey thinks it's the best state ever, the rest of us know it's just where we send all the garbage.

I can't stand cake icing. I scrape as much of it off as possible and very rarely eat cake. Many foods in America are too sweet.

I've been trying to tell you guys that...... gotta be something in the water down here.

Tho, to be fair, this is a very transient state, with even more of its residents being transplants from other states and countries. So there is that.

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

Icing or frosting..? Is there a difference for you guys?

Icing goes on a bundt cake or cinnamon roll. It's more liquidy. Frosting goes on a cake. It's thick and creamy and best when home-made Drooling the stuff on a store-bought cake is nasty and flavorless.

I really miss American confections, I find the ones here to be over-baked, dry, and strangely textured. Nothing has a melt-in-your-mouth quality. Sadcryface
