    He was convinced the greatest part of America was #8 on the list: convenience.  3AM and you want waffles hot and piping -- you got it.  You want a bushing for your kitchen faucet -- you got it.  You want some falafel -- you got it.

    Also, it had been remarked by various European exchange students who lived with my family that the American work ethic is phenomenal.  Everyone works their asses off all the time.  The Belgians and the French and the Fins and the Norwegians and the Germans all said they spend an inordinate amount of time hanging out and sipping lattes and beers in their home countries while Americans work hard, then play hard, then go to bed early so they can get up to work hard again in the morning.

    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon. As good as I am, the bird is going to shit on the board and strut around like it won anyway. –jbou (2013)
