I guess people assume Americans are fat like they assume Canada is a barren winter wonderland where the inhabitants live in igloos, ride moose and polar bears, and are governed by Tim Hortons. :P

Probably not first for long #1 so.... Americans are fat ey? I'll argue that point after I finish my 20-piece KFC drumstick bucket, my 2 Dominoes pizzas, and this 5,000 calorie burger I made from scratch. People can be so blind...

69- Well, Russia is Eurasian and they are commonly hot there under 30. So thank you for emphasizing my point. It's annoying how if you ask most Americans what country Russia is in they might say Asia. Notice I said most. Btw I heard that 1/3 of Americans can't identify North America. Is this true?

if u speak russian but were born in america then ur american u still have russian blood though.. less, but nontheless, russian blood. if ur immigrant but are citizen now ur still american. he can be any of these & stereotype himself but i think he just meant well why take it so personal?

well, considering it, a huge chunk of that 1/3 would be kids under the age of 6-7 who couldn't locate north America because they never have been asked that before and I'm 100% sure 1/3 of amercans over the age of 18 not able to find north America on a map is most definatly not true There are dumbasses everywhere we look. I am fortunatly not one of them 

Guys chill. It is true that texas I the fatest state in the fatest country. It is a proven fact. If you are from texas and not overweight, congrats on beating the odds. But it doesn't change facts. Also Russian and Americans. Both countries are full of both good and evil. But so is every other one. I have lived in both countries, and OPs boyfriend is right. But that's the way things are. Stop whining over the Internet about it. By the way. I live in the USA.

Noticed that after I posted it, SOTY. Tried to edit, got that "This comment doesn't exist anymore" message. Anyhow, meant #90. As for Texas being the fattest state... Take a look at where we're getting immigration from.

sorry, but I'm finding this FML quite fun since it's usually the patriotic Americans that start the arguments ;') Didn't know we had Russians on FML :) Hey! Guys, now you know what it's like on the recieving end of a stereotype (like you do to England, France (europe in general :P), Australia.). :) good times, there's just been an argument on facebook yesterday (on the 'i played pacman on') between america and everyone else because an English guy did the group. this meant putting the date DD/MM/YY. :P

Just look it up freeze, k? I'm going now, hopefully you don't call BS without checking next time, sound good? Maybe they'll ask you on the official 2110 census. Look, I don't know where they get the facts, all I know is the facts themselves and while it is always a good idea to test for yourself I am not about to ask all of you to locate the US.

You saw the Miss South Carolina video... Have a cookie. It's BS because I'm an American, and have not ever been asked to locate the map on the US. So before you tell me to do some fancy research, I can tell you right off the bat it's bull. You can say it's 1/5 all you want, but it's not 1/5. Now are you really leaving or going to try and respond with this magical research you've discovered?

You go 83! But yes. I live in Texas and I'm not fat. So.. Why can't we get along with people bigger than you may be? They are people like us too, just cause they are overweight a little (or alot) doesn't change anything about who they are. Stop criticizing America because there are fat people here. They didn't do shit to any of you. And also, stop criticizing the Russians. Okay, maybe the guy was a little ignorant, but that doesn't mean you gotta go criticize the whole nation. There are lots of people not like that there and you criticize them for one guy who was a little rude, but he was saying the truth. Stop yelling over FML please:(

do you ever think about all the people killed by USA bombs for last 60 years. Do you ever think that all you "have" is because it was taken from someone else???

261. this^^ :P love it how the only descriptions we get from the proud Americans here are 'awesome', and 'badass'.

But it's home. see your home for it's faults, and the good points are so much better.

#126 Well the older generation maybe cant find the u.s on the map cuz schooling back then sucked, but i can identify the u.s, Russia, and England, ect. I can even locate some major cities in Russia. Not that hard p.s im only 14 too so most of us younger Americans are much more smarter than the older ones so that 1/5 will soon be lowered since our school system is improving.

One last thing to add Our standard of living is overall higher than pretty much every country in the world. We have more money to spend, this leads to more of everything, including food.

If the world was a village of 100 people, there would be: 57 Asians 21 Europeans 14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south 8 Africans 52 would be female 48 would be male 70 would be non-white 30 would be white 70 would be non-Christian 30 would be Christian 89 would be heterosexual 11 would be homosexual 6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth and all 6 would be from the United States. 80 would live in substandard housing 70 would be unable to read 50 would suffer from malnutrition 1 would be near death 1 would be near birth 1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education 1 would own a computer So, like Story said, we have a much better standard of living and are fat because we like good food and can afford to eat it. I guarantee if other countries made the same $ and had good fast food at American prices they'd be pretty fat too.

Americans are the world's fattest nation not only because they are rich. but because they are too lazy to eat at home healthier(arguably more expensive) and because fat food is huge over there. in other words unhealthy foods Whig make you fat. this prove some of your points wrong

you know, you're probably wrong about America having the most money. I once heard that there's an electric sign on (wall street?) a street that said how much money Americans owed. it was in the trillions. and going up by tens of thousands each couple of seconds. remember, America is a capitalism country, so while some are fantasticly wealthy, some Americans might a well live with a tribe in Africa.

1) Both Russia and America have enough nukes to destroy the world. A few thousand more or less doesn't matter at this point, seeing as we're not using them. 2) Yeah, but his race is irrelevant here, isn't it? 3) France has nothing to be ashamed of. France is a pretty awsome place. This is coming from an American (Who is not obese, thankyouverymuch.) Let's not have WWIII over an FML. The appropriate way to comment here is: Geez, that sucks, mabye you should tell your boyfriend that stereotype offends you. or: YDI for being fat. or: YDI for having an insensitive boyfriend. :)

I'm Russian, I live in the UK. Best of both worlds, so to say. I make quite a few "stereotyping" jokes like this guy has done, about just about every nationality that has famous stereotypes... Including, shock horror, my own country. Funnily enough, I never really mean them - while stereotypes are born from truth a lot of the time, I realise that not everyone fits into their prescribed categories. What I've found, though, is that #378 is completely correct: a lot of Russians are quite rude and don't have quite the refined manners of a Western member of society. Sad, though, that most of the Russians in this thread decide to prove that norton correct.

#429, I disagree. English is my third language, I've been actively using it for 6 years, and I study it at university. Know why? Because I BOTHERED to learn it. And that sort of fuck up is quite colossal for someone who a, claims to be good at languages and b, claims to be fluent in English.

In response to everyone talking about the moon landing: Russia actually was the first to get there in the unmanned space shuttle Luna 2. If you wanna talk about WALKING on the moon then yes, America is the only one so far, so in a sense most of you are right in your own respect. Russia was the first country to the moon, but America is the first and only country to land (not crash) and walk on the moon. Sorry to be so pedantic about comments made years ago, but the ignorance was so overwhelming.

Not true. American Samoa is, with 93.5% of their population overweight. The US places third, which is only .2% higher than Germany, 3.8% higher than Bosnia, 5.3% higher than Croatia, and 5.7% higher than Great Britain, the European countries rounding out (so to speak) the top ten.

Umm I know at Russian people too... Also just because someone doesn't look, "fat" it does not mean they technically aren't. Someone can have a thin frame with a lot or fat on it, look normal size, and e considered obese.

America isn't the fattest country out there, but obesity is still a large problem. I'm American and I don't give a shit about the insults other nations throw at us. It's just better to nod your head and move on.
