American white bread isn't as good as British white bread though. It always tastes really sweet and looks really yellowish.

Not wanting to get territorial over bread or anything....

I don't get the whole concept of Sports Entertainment! Every sporting event you go to in the US, there's like music, fanfare, contests & prizes to be won, cheerleaders and the like. Whereas if you go to a soccer game or cricket game overseas, there's none of these frills attached. I prefer to enjoy the game, really. The Superbowl is the absolute extreme of this phenomenon!

I also don't get the whole fascination with guns; collecting them, talking about them, shooting things up with them. It bothers me greatly.

I also find baseball very boring. I went to a Blue Jays game a few years ago and nearly fell asleep.

Uh, that's b/c you were at a Blue Jay's game.

White bread is so bad for you. Wheat is where it's at.

I don't get the number 2 pencil. Why number 2? Who made this decision?
