    Default fao non-americans

    What aspects of your culture are massively different from that of American culture?

    - Metric system
    - Education system is structured completely differently, no 'high school' and 'college' is completely different.
    - Our politicians never debate meaningless shite like abortion/same-sex marriage. Even the Conservative party, the BNP and UKIP, our most far-right parties, agree that these things should be legal. They never come up in debates, ever.
    - There are a huge number of leftists. A lot of the people you meet throughout your life sympathise with socialism. We have huge trade union demonstrations against the smallest austerity measures.
    - Atheism is huge and Christianity is almost entirely a cultural thing or people that follow the teachings of Jesus but don't interpret the Bible literally. Bible-thumpers are impossible to find here, anywhere.

    I don't get the "unhealthy food" argument. McDonalds and KFC are everywhere here, maybe not as ubiquitous as in America but they're pretty common.

    Well, portion sizes are smaller, the food does not contain animal fat- in India it's always vegetable oil.

    America uses both the metric and imperial system because we can.

    Soda comes in liters, milk comes in gallons... Height is measured in feet + inches, snow/rain is measured in centimeters until it reaches an inch...

    We learn both.
