    As much as I'm anti-gun ownership, the whole "they kill people" argument is a load of crap.

    Alright: You have an angry madman ( I hate the term but it's just easy to use here) with a gun and an angry madman with a knife. Who is more likely to kill someone?

    The answer is obvious. You may not need a gun to kill people but hell, it sure helps.

    If you're a mad man and want to kill people, I suggest a few lengths of chain, padlocks, and gasoline.

    Since this got off onto a gun tangent here...

    I've noticed most South Koreans think that all Americans carry guns, and that the streets are deadly dangerous places, you're just as likely to get shot by a black criminal (actual stereotype, propagated by lots of American television) as make it to the store.

    I had a student genuinely shocked and surprised that I don't eat pizza and hamburgers all day, every day. I shock students everyday by understanding the most basic of basics about Korean culture (they're still shocked that I can use chopsticks and can say annyonghaseyo, "hello", even after I tell them I've lived here for a year).

    I shock and surprise students when I tell them that, as an American, I've never done drugs.

    They believe that everyone has a swimming pool in the backyard (even if they live in the norther parts) and that anyone can afford giant mansions in Malibu and spacious apartments along Central Park.

    I had a student planning a week long trip ask how long it takes to drive from LA to New York, as she wanted to visit both places. I laughed.

    I'm a proud owner of an Engrish t-shirt "Child -Fast Horse- Prodigy" as English tends to be merely a fashion symbol for businesses, rather than something legible.

    All that said, most girls here think that western guys are really cute, romantic, and caring (and according to my GF, the k-girls all think that western guys are absolutely obsessed with them).

    Many Koreans think that Paris is by far the most romantic place on Earth. They think that just by going there, roses bloom, lovers meet, and true love is found. Then they go, realize that it's not all that, and are severely let down. Not much different than American's views once were really.

    Because of the recent Korea-US FTA talks, and some problems with tiny bits of bone found in US beef, the news here reports that ALL US beef is unsafe and ridden with mad cow disease. Nevermind the sheer amount of bone present in all Korean dishes.

    Then they ask what Americans think of Koreans, and I tell them 'nothing.' Maybe nukes, and insane dictator, but the average American knows nothing of South Korea (the non-nuke one btw).

    The govt. exam would be better than the history exam. It's proooobably more important for a voter to know whether the house has 2 year terms and the senate 6-year terms, or if it's the other way around, than to know why the Reconstruction was botched. One being more relevant, of course.

    If you actually know how to use a gun, rather than just buy it and assume that the bullets know what they are supposed to do, there's no 'slinging' involved.

    Besides that, unless they are also armed, one bullet is almost ALWAYS enough to stop any number of attackers.

    And money is not always going to be the be all and end all of someone's interests once they know they have some power over you, not to mention that said money may not be going to very good causes.
    Not to mention the higher the probability their potential mugging victim is armed, the lower the probability they'll carry out the mugging.
    Or you know, they'll shoot first and ask questions later.

    . . .

    If the person really has a reason to kill someone, they will do it with a gun, with a knife, or simply by snapping their neck. Or punching them to death. In the hands of an angry man, a bread knife is just as dangerous as a gun. It makes no difference, or at least an inconsequential amount. (with the exception of massacres)

    It all comes down to "guns don't kill people, people do".

    As I said, I'm anti-gun, but I do not use this argument.

    Speaking of food, I can't eat bread in the U.S. I tried to buy an ordinary loaf of bread in Florida, but I couldn't stomach it. The bread was so damn sweet. The Pizza chain I was at was horrible. The crust was coated in some sugary sweet crap. I thought that I had a sweet tooth, not by American standards it seems.

    Apart from that America is nice. People were complaining about American tourists, personally I've always been impressed by their courtesy. I'm usually loathed to use Monty Python, but in The Meaning of Life there is the quintessential American tourists. They do have a certain naivete, but I'm sure the natives think the same about me while I'm on holiday.

    I'm really passive about bread. Sourdough? I eat it. Pumpernickel? I eat it. Sweet and sugary? Hard as rocks? Sure. So fluffy it might as well not be there? Sure. More tasteless than water? Fine. It's odd, though, I wouldn't identify most bread as sweet. Did that pizza place actually have some sort of glaze, or is what I identify as totally plain bread actually sugary?

    There are a couple good places in just about every state. Even here in Missouri. However, Saint Louis style pizza is, bar none, the worst pizza in America. It's awful. Talking about sweet bread? The sauce is like candy or some crap here. The bread is doughy but thin, and always tastes undercooked. The cheese is provel, which is awful melted on sweet crap sauce. If I eat more than a tiny bit of it, it makes my stomach very upset and I feel shitty for a while. Basically the only food I've eaten that can do that, really.

    Best state and city for pizza is New York. Not suprising since modern American pizza was invented there. I suggest Lombardi's the first pizza place in the USA (and in all likelihood, first in the Americas). It's in Manhattan on the border of Chinatown, I forget what streets.

    I theorize a pickup with a shovel on the front would be one of the best.
    Or you know, they'll shoot first and ask questions later

    Yeah, alright. It is worth mentioning that there is some evidence to suggest concealed carry laws reduce mugging rates, but there isn't any evidence at all of what you're suggesting. It's just a supposition that doesn't really even make sense - why would they immediately want a life sentence instead of armed robbery?

    There are many different kinds of bread. What kind did you get? My local grocery store chain has its own bakery, and more than 50 different types of pre-packaged bread. It'd also be of interest to know what kind of bread you normally eat and what kind of pizza.

    There are numerous varieties of pizza in the USA... Stuff like barbecue chicken, chicken garlic, thin, standard, Chicago style, etc. And, of course, a huge variance in quality. In a number of cases, the local variations can only be stomached by the local populace.

    I had plenty of pizzas in my travels to your land. Many were delicious, I was just shocked that some meatlovers pizza (my friend ordered it) had a very sweet base. It just an unusual experiance, having my pizza taste like candy. . I practically lived on Pizza during my holiday in vegas. Dominos is a biggish chain in Ireland now, I love their pizzas.

    Bread, well it was what we'd call a sliced pan. Just normal bread that would be used for a sandwich. I'm sure there is a good selection, but I was suprised that there was such sweetness. Is this kind of bread usually on the sweet side? It just struck me as strange.

    He may be talking about WHITE bread, which is half-way to being sugar.

    If you want good bread, go for something whole wheat, that actually has chunks of grains in it.

    Some bread is kind of sweet. Wonderbread-type bread, for instance. I like it, but it isn't my favorite. Nice thing about sweeter tasting bread is you can just eat it by itself.

    It probably tastes sweeter to you than me since I grew up with it. BTW, did you try a Peanut butter and jelly sandwhich while you were here? Europeans and Aussies seem revolted by the concept, at least the ones I've mentioned it to.

    Had a friend over seas tell me a story, about how on one of the last days at college all the Americans bought bread, jelly and peanut butter and made sandwhiches, which grossed out all the non-Americans on campus. Evidently though, few had ever tried it and refused to even consider it.

    Slight trivia note, the PB&J was invented by Americans in Europe during WWII, making something better out of their rations.

    Americans are great at doing waffles and pancakes, yet you seem to sorely lack in the crisp (chips) department. They all seem to require dips. A nice packet of Cheese and Onion crisps lifts the taste buds and clogs the arteries, delicious!

    Boston pizza is okay. Pretty much everywhere serves it - you can't really walk a block in Boston without bumping into at least one non-chain pizza & grinder joint. It doesn't have anything distinct about it the way that New York or Chicago pizzas do - standard hand-tossed rising crusts, standard sauce, etc, but it's generally of decent quality.

    The pizza place nearest me (owned by Greeks) puts about two or three pounds of cheese on each pizza. It's good but jesus that's a lot of cheese.

    I actually really, really like Pizza Hut's thin crust pepperoni and bell pepper pizza. The last time I had it at least, the sauce had a nice spice to it. I've never liked the pan pizza though.

    The best pizza though, Barley's in Asheville NC.

    I like dominos,a pepperoni pizza with garlic and herb sauce is lovely. It may shorten my life-span but it is worth it.

    I like Domino's. I've more or less been raised on Domino's, in fact. Around here it is either that or Papa Gino's, and I prefer the thick and dough-y crust. I'm aware however that this is not what most people consider pizza.
