What is something that your country doesn't have that others do, and you wish you did?

I wish America had vulgar greeting cards like the UK.

I can think of at least 7 people that I would buy these cards for. There's a fucking market.

    I wish America had close proximity to tons of first-world nations like Europe enjoys.

    I also wish we had an affordable, efficient rail service to travel from place to place. Taking the train to New York from Boston costs around as much as it would to take a fucking airliner.

    Autobahns. Or some rules/mentality of them, such as slow people on the right, only go to the left lane to pass.

    More roundabouts would be neat, too, but there's so much wasted space in the middle of them.

    Actually, this is a good place:

    I'm visiting a friend in France at t'weekend. What exciting English stuff should I take for her and her housemates? I really can't think of anything outside of a chocolate orange.

    Where we'd say normal American's tend to say regular. It's just one of those little things that I noticed years ago.
