When you add up all these differences within an European country to the rest of the European countries, you'll get a mega concentration of variables that the US can't possibly replicate. So again, apples and oranges.
I'm starting to think you're not understanding the concept of comparisons.
Comparing languages to other languages is okay, for example, even if you're comparing one language to a thousand. The "apples and oranges" thing is when you compare how fast you can run to how tasty cake is. Since running speed and taste are actually completely different things. A region of the world being compared to a different region of the world isn't "apples and oranges," since you're comparing the same things: Regions. It doesn't matter that there are differences among those two regions, since...that's the whole fucking point in comparing shit, pretty much.
If I compared a katana to a zweihänder I would hope you wouldn't say stupid shit like "Lolol lyke dey r from 2 different time periods with drastically different cultures N r wielded differently N stuff durrrrr APPLES N ORANGES LOLOL." Because I'm comparing two sharp pointy weapons, and they're both sharp pointy weapons. So I can compare them. Same exact concept applies here.
So much blah blah blah for a "US pwns, Europe is pussy" rebutal? Miburo, I'm disappointed, you normally come up with such valid and interesting posts and this is all we get?
How is it not a valid point? Am I wrong?
And you should find my posts interesting, since I'm giving you a personal lesson in how to be smarter. The least you can do is pay attention and graciously accept my teachings, grasshopper.
