Very American Things You’ll Be Surprised You Didn’t Know

American Things You'll Be Surprised

America is a country that is known for its constant changes. Also, for the fact that they do things that are quite the opposite to what the entire world does, you see the country once you will never see it the same way the next time you see it. That is one of the unique things of the countries. However, the facts that we are going to list here are a little different. They are so American that you will feel embarrassed for not knowing them as they have always been there. So with no further delay, let us get to the list.

The Blood of Budweiser:

Budweiser is a very popular American beer brand, and it is known across the globe for its taste and authentic flavours. A large number of us might have tasted the beer but little did we know of the fact that the firstborn children of the Budweiser family were made to taste the beer even before they could go for their mother’s milk. Quite a weird tradition.

That is the fame of McDonald’s:

If you know 20 Americans and at least two of them say that they worked in McDonald’s, do not give them a weird look. This is because every 1 in 8 Americans was at some of their lives worked in McDonald’s even if they aren’t constantly employed there. That is the fame of McDonald’s for you.

The Wrestling Hall of Fame:

One need not have to tell what the wrestling hall of fame is. It is the place that is in some way like a memorial that holds the portraits of some of the best wrestlers in the world. If you ever get a chance to visit this Hall of Fame, there is one portrait that will make you squint your eyes, pucker your brows and make you look more than twice. No matter what you do the face on the portrait will not change, and that is the portrait of the former president of the country Abraham Lincoln. It is quite surprising that his history as a president outrun his greatest history as a wrestler as he had won all the 299 matches out of the 300 he played.

1 American for every 32 Kenyans:

No, we are not going to fight. It is just a statistics based on the consumption pattern of the Kenyans and the Americans. What 32 Kenyans consume is the consumption quantity of a single American. That is what they call conspicuous consumption.

Not America but Apple is the global power:

America, as we know is known as the global power, but would you mind saying that it is not America but Apple that is the global power of the country. You wouldn’t, would you? That is maybe because you find it hard to believe. But the country is called the global power for the wealth it has, but the American brand Apple. Inc has more money than the US treasury.

The History Of The United States Of America

United States Of America

There are about roughly 200 recognised countries in the world, and we have this count for quite a while now. Though there are so many countries around the globe, only a few countries continue to amaze us with everything that they do and the things that they have in the past. Here is one country that has never failed to let our jaws drop, and that country is the United States of America. Today we will see a different side of the history of the country.

A history that stirs jealousy:

If you are someone but American, you are probably surprised as to how a country that is just 250 years old is making miracles and has become the global superpower. That is the same reason why we are talking about the history of this nation. So it is not definitely like, one fine morning, out of the blue a group of people walked in and formed a nation. The Native Americans who later lived in North America lived there for more than 1000 years. They simply weren’t recognised as people with a proper place. These people according to the ancient history were also recognised as Red Indians.

Though they were fine with that unrecognised state, the British people didn’t let that happen. The started colonising the area, and they started moving into the place of these Native Americans. The American could do nothing but fight for their rights and liberty. The war of was led By George Washington, who later became its first president after the independence of the country. The war was simply magic, and that is how the American constitution was framed. It was such a revolutionary war in the history of America.

Industrialisation and Global power:

Unlike the rest of the world that started their life with soil and agriculture, the United States of America started out with industries. They picked up pace made an industrial revolution. Apart from making their own stuff they also developed safe and wise trade relationships with the countries around them. They started growing in population and gradually occupied a large part of the western world. They must have only worked hard for the first 150 years of their existence, and by the beginning of the 20th century, they emerged as a global power, and they make decisions for the entire global economy, quite surpassing the European economy.

The present USA

Today the USA dictates authority to the whole world and America is the super-power economy of the world. America has had its own tough time, and the Great Depression of 1921 is an unforgettable page in the books of American history. There was also a major dip in the year 2008, and many thought America wouldn’t get over. But the country survived all of this. Though there are a lot of countries in the world that are performing better than the US, it is the US dollar that fixes things in the global market.
