Americans: A Superlative People

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Challenged by comparatives and superlatives or guys trying to suck your cock?

If we're going to split hairs and play one-up with language, consider:
  • more awesome (comparative)
    most awesome (superlative)
Now, what were you saying about sucking dick, NB?

Most Americans like me don't even know what superlative means.

LoL. I might be heading back to the States for a short holiday soon.

It will be nice to feel skinny again, surrounded by Pillsbury Dough people.
I fall into the old middle ground a-bit-overweight category, and these days in the States, depending who I'm standing next to, I get to feel either skinny or wildly out of shape.

Most of them are cool, just avoid two topics, foreign policy and guns.

I always tell them I'm Mexican, they love that.
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

UK is probably just as obese , and France is catching up. The UK has just allowed 2 million overweight people with diabetes to qualify for free surgery. Makes you want to avoid tax even more.

My problem with the overweight and obese people is that they tend to waste food like a hobby when it can be kept of the next meal. Then whine like a little girl when they aren't having enough food.
