America gave so much shit to the world.

Polio, Malaria, Smallpox, Rubella, Diphtheria, Yellow Fever, oh wait, those were cures.

Yeah but the vaccine as an invention was not American
https://www.historyofvaccines.org/timeline#EVT_1

That's like me making a product near identical to another persons work but calling it something different to say I invented it



You gave us 'The Simpsons'. Credit where its due. It provided the world a humorous documentary about life in America and American people.

Quote
Cream of Wheat will remove the Black chef that has appeared on its packaging since 1893, the brand’s parent company announced three months after launching a review on the packaging.

The parent company of Cream of Wheat, B&G Foods, confirmed to The Hill on Monday that the packaging will change.

"For years, the image of an African-American chef appeared on our Cream of Wheat packaging. While research indicates the image may be based upon an actual Chicago chef named Frank White, it reminds some consumers of earlier depictions they find offensive," the company said in a statement. "Therefore, we are removing the chef image from all Cream of Wheat packaging.”

The announcement comes after B&G Foods declared in June it would review its packaging to ensure “our brands do not inadvertently contribute to systemic racism.”


I don't why the image of a black man in a chef's hat would remind anyone of earlier offensive depictions of black men in advertising.  How does removing an image that isn't offensive help increase diversity and inclusion in advertising?
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

I think it's not because of how the picture is used now, but because they were worried people would start looking at how and why it was first used (and of course it was racist). Which I guess didn't really work because now more people are gonna look at it but whatever.

This is a few years old but is a huge WTF

Quote
The Netherlands is the best place to eat overall, Chad the worst. The USA has the cheapest food in the world compared to the price of other goods, but falls down for food-related health problems. Cambodia has the healthiest food, but a lot of malnourished people as well.

Best Places To Eat
• The Netherlands
• France, Switzerland (equal score)
• Denmark, Sweden, Austria, Belgium (equal score)
• Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Luxembourg, Australia (equal score)

These are a few headlines from a new report that aims to give a rounded picture of national food systems. The study from Oxfam, a U.K. nonprofit, combines data for food availability, affordability, quality, and health outcomes. European nations mostly do best, with Holland, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, Austria, and Belgium taking the top spots. The first non-European country is Australia, in eighth place.

At the other end of the rankings of 125 countries are mostly African nations, with Ethiopia, Angola, and Madagascar after Chad. Yemen is the worst-performing non-African country, in 121st place. These countries suffer from high food costs and price volatility, poor conditions for food preparation, and food that lacks nutritional quality.

Many richer countries do well for some things, but not others. The U.S. is in 21st place, because although we have cheap food, we score poorly for quality and health issues. On the latter measure alone, the U.S. ranks in 120th place, with similar rates of obesity and diabetes as Saudi Arabia and Egypt. That’s largely because of diets in poorer communities, where “processed, high-fat foods are often significantly cheaper than fruit and vegetables.” Canada is in 25th place.

Out of 125 countries, America, one of the wealthiest and advanced nations on Earth, ranks 120. You barely edge out YEMEN!

Europe kicks the shit out of all of you like The Netherlands, France and you even let a scandi country like SWEDEN! That's right! The Swedes get the better of you! :D

Australia is the first non European country on the list at the top ranking 8 8)

Your neighbour Canada ranks 25th

So how the hell do you get to as low as some of the poorest, underdeveloped and corrupt nations?

You actually think there is 'face' to save on a flat earth forum where no one knows who each other is. You are a classic moron

Why would I remove any posts anyway? This thread is a giant 'how to trigger sokarul' and it's funny as hell. I'll leave it

Also, beg elsewhere. No one wants to give you $1000 so you can blow it on your shitbox car trying to impress ladies that will never be able to get past your balding red head

Your existence is another reason why America is a giant face palm lol

You sound like the kind of guy whose rims are worth more than the car. Whatever you want to blow your load on. Not my business. Zero f#&ks given

You weren't right. America is a lousy country when it comes to your food quality and standards. It is a shocking indictment that you rate among countries like Yemen or Chad. FFS man! Aren't you guys a wealthy country? World leader? Blessed by God?

We rank better than Canada overall. On Health issues the U.S. ranks in 120th place. There was no info about other countries ratings in that category.  I'm not sure why you are incorrectly grouping us with Yemen and Chad.

Yemen ranks 121 as it said. Given the list was out of 125 and it says Chad ranked the lowest, the simple powers of deduction (you obviously lack) would tell us Chad ranks 125

Also if you bothered to click the link it would have its own link to the study which you could download.

My Smart Fortwo being faster than your car is simply a fact when you don't even put your car up to compete. Happy to amend that statement. You could say you own a Ford Pinto and I'll say 'Yep. Beats my Smart'. Currently you haven't got anything

Anyway, this is not the angry ranting forum. I know you like to treat every thread as if it's angry ranting (probably because you're a bitter and twisted munted Yankee). You want to circle jerk more, go there and I'll take your stinky bait. I'm done with you up here. My next post here will be of another sorry embarrassing excuse synonymous with America as is the topic. I know reading comprehension is hard for you. The quality of American education is woeful on the world stage

Why do you dig so much? Those are total ranks, of which the US ranked 21st. That is far from 121st and 125th, wouldn't you agree?
