Why is the UK better than the USA?

Post  pinhedz on Wed Apr 20, 2011 11:36 pm

I remember that this was explained, but now that it's been deleted, all I can think of is what a cute little country England is.

Did you know that America was started by people from Englund who thought Englund was boring and gay? Phil Oakey has a very healthy lifestyle and is a good example for the youths.

UK citizens generally keep their wits about them.

Unbefuddled by large infusions of inexpensive but otherwise respectable vino, the average Brit would probably have posted this thread in the Off Topic rather than the Music- General section.

The original thread about UK superiority was mostly about comparing the Beatles to the Monkees.

I think we also got onto the subject of Great Britain's tradition of sophisticated humo(u)r--all subtlety and dry wit:

looks like an editing gaffe on the Gilbert/Sullivan clip there. Before Picard says Data was doing HMS Pinafore, Worf already brings up the lyrics on his screen. And what kind of computer lets you go from the main menu to Gilbert/Sullivan lyrics in just two finger clicks without any kind of preprogramming? scratch

The other thing that sets America apart from Europe, Ms. Jacoby argues, is this country’s insistence on local control of schools, which means that “children in the poorest areas of the country would have the worst school facilities and teachers with the worst training” and that “the content of education in the most backward areas of the country would be determined by backward people.”

“In Europe,” she writes, “the subject matter of science and history lessons taught to children in all publicly supported schools has always been determined by highly educated employees of central education ministries. In America the image of an educated elite laying down national guidelines for schools was and is a bête noire for those who consider local control of education a right almost as sacred as any of the rights enumerated in the Constitution.”
