Uniquely American

On this Fourth of July, I found this Reddit thread fascinating: What's an incredibly american thing americans don't realize is american? Check it out, but a few standouts to me here:

  • Prescription drug commercials. These are like half of the ads during some shows here in the U.S.
  • Extremely long election campaigns. Presidential elections are typically all we hear about for over 12 months leading up to the actual vote.
  • Cult-like followings of high school and college sports.
  • Free refills at restaurants.
  • Ranch, ranch, and ranch!
