The entire world is obsessed with America,

While many Americans seem obsessed with Britain/Britishness. (Another trait🤔)

Every American is now Googling Q,E.D.  

Only if you didn't have 2 yrs of Latin ... 😎

Using QED speaks more than simply using words 🙄

Anglophilia is definitely a thing.

 

One of my first jobs was under a British expat in San Francisco. He said he hired me because I said my favorite author was Evelyn Waugh.

Saying "could care less" instead of "couldn't care less" - this one just makes me laugh as it means the speak doesn't understand their own language.

 

Saying "anyways" instead of "anyway". Just sounds... wrong, to me at least.

Anyways is atrocious but I defend could care less. It's not about logic. It just flows better. Being terminally literal is unhealthy.

Not quite sure I understand this rant.

 

But, but who doesn't care about their home country first?

 

I have lived as a guest in several countries throughout my life, but the US was and is always my home, and I'd kick all of those guest countries to the curb if it came to it.

 

I think most folks would have the same feeling for their home country, well maybe not North Koreans!

Not me.

I do not care about my home country, first.

 

Nationalism is not first on my list.

 

I would rather care about cowgirls...in the sand....than nationalism...

I have to agree with the last sentence. Reading back my own post I wrote "speak" which wasn't right either.
