55- I'm American, but I hate when people stereotype Americans into Nationalistic, drunk rednecks. I respect everybody, even if they don't respect me. It's the way I was raised. Just because some Americans are idiotic, judgemental pricks, doesn't mean we all are.

89 I never said anything about drunk rednecks. I don't see your culture that way, actually in that sense I think Australia is worse. In my experience traveling to the US the people are the loveliest and most friendly and outgoing on earth, but there also is a massive emphasis on nationalism, for example the worship of past presidents, the abundance of your national flag on basically every street corner in some parts, the protection and sacredness of the law and the fact that the national anthem is sung even at National level sporting events. This is just my biased Australian observation. and its totally ok that your culture is like that, just understand that much of the world isn't and that's why we see the US as a particularly nationalistic society.

yeah but some places put the year first so its not like everyone is the same. the pound symbol is already taken though so calling the hash symbol that is bound to cause confusion. it has no comnection to pounds in currency or in weight.

Seeing as though this FML is from America, it is alright for US to ridicule. It is not proper for (people who live in the USA) to think of it as 'hash' (Atleast not until the #hashtag epidemic).

101- I understand where you are coming from, I'm proud to be American, but I'm not an ubernationalist. I said drunk redneck because that seems to be the American stereotype of choice.

Woah 158. no one said they didn't like America. cut the patriotic crap. were all from different places with different ideas. it's people like you that give the culture a bad name; you look like a fool.

the abbreviation for a pound such as a measurement for weight in America is lb or # prior to Twitter everyone in America called this buttone on the telephone A pound key now that every hashtag s completely unnecessarily on facebook and Twitter the use of the pound key term will surely end. In America hash is concentrated marijuana.

Sadly, this won't get the thumbs up this deserves as it's probably to random seeming for people to Google. Just know you made one person grin and nod in approval.

So hipster, 155, you and your nonconventional pet with a rarely understood name. (I don't have anything against unusual pets, I have a tortoise. It's just the way you presented it.)

You fear for humanity because the name of a symbol has been changed based on its most common usage? How do you even get out of bed in the morning? The world must terrify you.

I'm a cake decorator and the other day, no lie, a 13 year old and his mother came in to have me write on a.cookie cake. He had me fucking write his username and then #happybirthday under if!! When I read it back I said "...pound happy birthday." and they didn't know what the hell I was talking about and tried to "correct"me.

the pound symbol is already taken it looks like this £. no wonder foll get mixed up. if soemone said to me to put in the dollar sign it would be $ not # so why do you use something thats easily recognisable as anothers currency as something else
